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)
Other Things to Note

The Harem was exactly as presented and Andrew made it super easy for me to arrive and settle in. I'd been mountain biking all day and the use of a washing machine was a real treat! Also found a homey local restaurant within walking distance for a great dinner and a beer.
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! The house was everything we needed for our trip and more. Located in a hip and artsy district right near public transit with bikes and laundry and a real kitchen! The house was clean and safe, the other guests were friendly and chill and the zine that Andrew provided with recommendations was full of great places and things to do.
My husband and I had a great time staying in the Harem room. Although we never got to meet Andrew, he was extremely responsive through email and text. The guide he provides is also really helpful to figure out where to go and what to do. The room was very charming and spacious, and the location of the house was so convenient. We came for the French Quarter Festival and had no problem walking or taking the bikes to get to the FQ. Several bus stops are also very close by. We were not sure what to expect regarding the neighborhood based on what others had said but we felt really comfortable the whole time and everyone we encountered was friendly. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Andrew!
The room was very cool. The house was as promised and we didn't run into another guest at all so it felt very private. Awesome neighborhood. Thank you so much!
The Harem was a great place to stay. It was a fantastic location as the surrounding Bywater/Marigny are friendly, relaxed and interesting. It is much nicer t be there than in the French Quarter. The house was clean and exactly as it said on the ad, Andrew was great, the aircon did not work for a bit but he came over and fixed it. There is also a booklet provided by Andrew with great tips on New Orleans. We saw some fantastic music at the Allways Lounge based on one of these tips. I would highly recommend staying here.
the harem room was just as described, inviting and comfortable. The house was very clean and quiet, as well as the surrounding neighborhood. The location was close to both frenchmen st, and the french quarter. We ended up driving on most occasions, with it only being about a 5-10 minute drive to our destination. The booklet offered to us, gave us some great places to try, we left our stay in the Harem room feeling satisfied that we had expereinced a lot of the true culture of New Orleans.
WE did Not expect to stay with more People in one Flat. We did sleep well, everything was ok. Not fare from NO french quater and everything was in Near reach.

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!
