Interaction with Guests
My house has three private rooms available, where guests and myself share the two bathrooms and the kitchen. I travel and work at my studio often, so sometimes you may not see me around, sometimes when I am out of town or on a project I also have my bedroom available for BnBers. However I am always a phone call or message away with any question you may have, and my friend Isabel who helps me clean can assist when I'm out of town with any issues at my home.
I Live in the Historic "Bywater Neighborhood" Close to the "French Quarter/Bourbon St." Downtown and the Historic Marigny Neighborhood/Frenchman Street
A safe area where everyone looks out for one another, with families and young entrepreneurs dotting the area with eclectic bars, eateries and shops.
There are several good restaurants, the "St. Claude Art Galleries", and the Mississippi River. A couple more blocks and you're at Two of the most popular coffee shops in town, Even more amazing restaurants, vintage shops, 24hr health food grocery, and many local destinations! Our house is a calm and beautiful ride along the Mississippi 1.5 miles to the French Quarter down beautiful South Peters Ave.
Commonly sought after attractions within 1.5 miles of our house are: Bourbon Street, Frenchmen Street, French Quarter, Louis Armstrong Park, French Market, Spotted Cat, Cafe Negril, Blue Nile, The Maison, Apple Barrel, Coop's Place, Mardi Gras Zone, Mimi's in the Marigny, All Ways Lounge, and the Bywater, Marigny, 7th Ward, and Treme neighborhoods.
I recommend using the Free bikes to get around the area, New orleans is a small enough city geographically you can get virtually anywhere by a short bike ride!
*a note on the bikes:
The bikes are FREE so they are not the fanciest of rides. Mainly geared toward the travelers who are down for an adventure, and aren't expecting a Lexus, they're more like an old Toyota (strong guts, but moody) But we love them, they have their quirks, and they get a lot of use. Please, if you are not used to working with a used "get around town bike" than consider renting a bike from one of the many lovely rentals around town. (Gerkins, Bicycle Michaels, or Crescent City Bike Tours)

What a great deal in the middle of Bywater! 5 minutes from Frenchman and the French Quarter. Andrew's personally made "zine" introducing us to the Bywater neighborhood was an awesome personal touch. The neighborhood is a wonderful up-and-coming community with plenty to eat, drink, and view. The bikes he provides offered us quick and easy access to the French Quarter from the East and the King bed in The Harem ensured us plenty of room to relax. 10/10 would stay here again, you can't really beat the price for the location.
Staying at the Harem was a true delight. We couldn't have asked for a more unique, funky and/or comfortable place to crash in NOLA for the day. Extremely well-located, close to main thoroughfares, hopping touristy areas as well as calmer, more neighborhood-type establishments. Also, even though the "house" had 3 other rooms in it, things still felt very private and we weren't disturbed once by other guests.
This is a beautiful home and very close to all the French quarter beauties of new Orleans! Felt very "homie" would definitely recommend to everyone!
The Harem is a super cool place to stay! The room is very well decorated with a huge bed and cooled to escape the NOLAN heat and humidity when you come back from a long day of exploring the city. The option to ride bikes was very nice, especially since there are some hidden gems in the Bywater that are definitely perfect to bike to. Definitely would stay at the House of Sweet Dreams again next time I'm in New Orleans.
The house was adorable and the perfect distance away from the more busy city spots, so it was quiet. The neighborhood was pretty chill, and while it's a little bit of a trek to the French Quarter, just walking though the city is worth it.
My boyfriend and I met a couple of the other guests, who were all quite nice and considerate.
The only issue we had was the wifi. It was out for our entire stay, and while it's not life ending, it was a bit inconvenient.
Andrew was out of town, but he did contact us with details for Alicia, who was taking care of the guests while he was away.
Also, The Harem bed was SUPER comfy and the air conditioning was very efficient, which is great after coming in from the southern heat!
Thanks for a great time!!

About the Host, Andrew
I am an artist who travels very often, I tour the world creating art installations and large group projects. Air Bnb is the perfect solution to keeping my home "lived in and loved" while I am in town or away!
When traveling I am usually driving my 40ft school bus converted in to an Art Studio all over the country creating large scale art installations, I studied Sculpture in Washington, DC and now love to call New Orleans; HOME!
I am so grateful for Airbnb and the world it opens up for me being able to host so many different people from everywhere on earth, I am happy to have you as my guest, welcome, please make yourself at home in our home, and see you soon!
