About this listing
Welcome to the Creole Attic, located in the hip and offbeat Historic Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. Whether you’re here for an event or holiday, to hang out, or rejuvenate your soul, we’ll make you feel at home in our upstairs guest apartment.
There are 2 private bedrooms, both with queen size beds. There's room to move around and the ceilings are high. It's a surprisingly open and spacious feel for an attic. You have your own central air conditioning and heating that you control. We have a strict 4-guest limit.
Access is through a big side gate at the sidewalk down a brick path to the back porch entry.
Interaction with Guests
I work from home so I'm always here. If there is anything you'd like to know about New Orleans feel free to ask. The city has something for everyone. I want to make your stay enjoyable and fulfilling.
Our neighborhood is a collection of colorful houses and colorful people. We have interesting restaurants, occasional corner bars and shops, and the riverfront Crescent Park. All of these are within a few blocks.
The people of the Bywater are an eclectic mix of generational families, artists, musicians and fresh young faces. You are encouraged to be yourself, come as you are, and live life at a relaxed pace.
We have 2 men's and 2 women's bicycles with locks. It's the best way to get around.
We're 2 blocks from the bus that goes right through the French Quarter, and 1 block from the return bus stop. A 1-day Jazzy Pass is $3 and is good for all day on all buses and streetcar lines. They can be purchased on the bus.
A taxi ride to the French Quarter is under $10. We like United Cab.
It's a 20 minute walk which is nice during the day to see the variety of architectural styles that are unique to New Orleans. Locals are friendly so say hello along the way.
After 10pm weekdays and midnight weekends is quiet time. We love our neighbors and they love us.
Smoke whatever you want OUTSIDE!!!
About the Host, Bernie
Fifth generation New Orleanian with a heart full of love for our city. My greatest joy is helping visitors make the most of their trip, since there are so many hidden gems that only a local would know about. I'm a laid back easy going guy with an adventurous spirit. My partner is an Illinois farm boy that has put down his roots here too. We both come from big wonderful families.
