If that's what you want, this has it.
A full apartment in a great location.
You will be hard pressed to find anything this size and this close to the heartbeat of the musical, gastronomic and cultural delights of New Orleans at this price point. Just 3 blocks to the French Quarter, 1 block from Louis Armstrong Park and 2 blocks from Esplanade, you're smack dab in the middle of trendy Treme, while being an easy stroll or bike ride to the French Quarter, the Marigny or Frenchman St for a nightly musical smorgasbord.
Seeking a single/couple of nonsmoking guests who can appreciate a clean and comfortable respite.
Full kitchen set up with utensils and basic cooking equipment, coffee maker, tea kettle, microwave and fridge.

Interaction with Guests
Guests are given directions/information on how to let themselves into the unit. We have normal work lives; however, live on property and are easily available to answer any questions, say hello or chat. Level of interaction once on property is totally up to each guest's preference.
Our home is in the historic Treme neighborhood. Treme is definitely a neighborhood in transition and is full of character. If you are expecting pristine looking homes and perfectly groomed lawns, Treme is not the neighborhood for you. Feel free to research more online about the neighborhood.

We absolutely loved it here. The accommodation is clean, spacious and well stocked with all the things you might need. It's secure in a safe area within walking distance to the French Quarter. We walked each day down to the French Quarter and if coming back late just jumped in a 5 minute Uber - no problems.
I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore New Orleans for a few days. Our host Whitney was also responsive to communication and requests during our stay.
What a great place to stay! We arrived following Whitney's instructions which were easy to follow and walked into a unit that was cool, had music playing and felt like a home! Whitney had provided more information in the unit about getting around New Orleans, how to organise taxis back to the airport and an offer to arrange pick ups to get to further away locations. The location of the unit is fantastic with the French Quarter only minutes walk away, the French Markets a 10-15 minute walk and it was great at the end of a day walking New Orleans to head back to a place with a great shower to wash off and head back out into the night life of this amazing city. Whitney provided so much info that we ended up not needing to contact her our whole time there but felt more than comfortable that we could have if needed. Definitely a place to stay!
The apartment was exactly what we thought it would be and the pictures represent the apartment very well.
My wife and I were in New Orleans for our first year wedding anniversary and stayed at Whitney and Tom's place. We couldn't have been more pleased and satisfied with the experience. The apt is absolutely adorable, very cozy and beautifully decorated. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The apt is far enough away from the French Quarter that there was no noise at all. However, it is close enough to be a very easy walk to and from the French Quarter, we never took a cab or Uber to get back. Whitney and Tom were very helpful and accommodating all throughout the experience, from booking to checking out. Also, a really nice little touch was that when we first arrived to the apartment, they had left some great music playing. It really made it feel like we were arriving home and gave us a quick preview taste of New Orleans. We would absolutely stay there again whenever we come back to NOLA!
We had a wonderful stay in Shogas. The property was lovely and cool in the hot weather and although we were warned about the location by locals we had no issues and felt very safe. We would definitely stay here again!
Our first AirBnB experience was great!!! Perfect quaint apartment that was comfortable, clean, and fitting for a couple looking for a nice getaway. Location is very convenient- we love the short drive of Uber service into the French Quarter and surrounding areas! Everyone we met was very hospitable. Whitney provided us with everything we needed! We will definitely recommend this service to everyone we know! Thanks so much!

About the Host, Whitney
My name is Whitney and I am a New Orleans transplant. Originally from North Carolina- I have lived in New Orleans since July 2010. Although I miss North Carolina often, I have fallen in love with New Orleans- the food, the spirit of the people, the music, the culture, the history, the tradition and even my husband, Tom! New Orleans has treated me well and I hope to repay it the favor for many years to come.
I have been an airbnb host since July 2012. The property was first listed on airbnb by the previous owner "Belinda." We want to be able to provide all of our guests with a quiet, nice and convenient place to stay as they take in all that New Orleans has to offer.
We hope to meet with you soon and help to make your New Orleans experience memorable.
Whitney (& Tom) :)
