LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!
This large studio is designed for two guests but on occasion we do allow one or two additional guests with pre-approval. (There is no additional sleeping arrangement, you have to provide sleeping bags/mattress and there is an additional fee for additional guests). Plenty of natural light and great central air conditioning to cool those hot summer days. The large private balcony is great for relaxing and people watching. There is also a blow dryer, iron (no ironing board) and free washer/dryer (laundry detergent provided).
Interaction with Guests
The host will meet you at the apartment for keys and instructions but you are on your on from there. We do provide lots of local maps and publications and of course we will be glad to share our "local" knowledge upon request.
It's the FRENCH QUARTER!!!
Walk to "everything" New Orleans.
Other Things to Note
Our location speaks for itself. If you want to be where the action is, in the heart of the French Quarter, and want to be able to walk everywhere this is your place. Enjoy all the sights and sounds from your large private balcony. It can be noisy at times (music, parades, laughter, a siren now and then) but that just adds to this Special French Quarter experience.
Do your "BIG" partying in the Club. Not at the apartment. Respect our wonderful neighbors that live here year round. Smoking is not allowed in the apartment but you may smoke on the balcony. And, PLEASE, no outside guests!
What a fantastic stay. My trip to New Orleans was a total success. It wouldn't have been near as wonderful without the balcony apartment overlooking Decatur st, or the advice from Suzanne. The only drawback was that there was a bar near the apartment which played music late into the night one night while I was there. Other than that there were no issues. Would gladly stay again!
Susanne's loft apartment was exactly as pictured and described in the listing. The location is absolutely perfect for anyone wanting to spend time in both the French Quarter and Marigny neighborhoods. With restricted access at the street level, we felt completely safe. The few building neighbors we happened to meet in passing were very friendly and we were not ever bothered by any noise from the neighboring apartments. While the bar below is as noisy as other reviewers have reported, we found that ear plugs were sufficient for sleep. We really loved people watching from the large balcony and listing to music played at the restaurant across the street. The apartment is near the river, and we were charmed by the calliope music played each afternoon from the Steamboat Natchez. The large shutters on the balcony also served well in keeping out noise and light in the mornings. New Orleans is extremely hot and humid and it was wonderful to be able to return to the cool air-conditioning in Susanne's apartment for a break after walking each day. We were also happy to find that there was more than enough hot water for long showers each morning. I would recommend Susanne's apartment to anyone looking for a memorable and authentic New Orleans experience!
Susanne was very quick to reply and let me know that Earl will be my contact going forward. Earl was awesome! He drew up little map of where to go and where NOT to go! The studio looks exactly like the pictures! Its right down the street from Cafe du Monde...yumm! The balcony looks over Decatur St, which is great for people watching but when you do want it quiet the windows block out a lot of noise. Its so close to everything...Mississippi River, Frenchman St., Royal St., Bourbon St.! I can't say enough good things, I would definitely come here again! Thanks Earl!
The place and view was amazing! I didn't want for anything. The patio was beautiful and the air conditioner was needed.
The location is beyond perfect if you're looking for cafe du monde. It's literally a block away.
All around awesome!

This is a great location in the French Quarter. LOVED Earl; Earl was a fabulous greeter and made the check in VERY easy. He even texted us prior to our arrival to connect. Bed comfy and kitchen great. I always wanted to stay local with a balcony and this is the one. Very comfortable!!!!
About the Host, Susanne
I absolutely love New Orleans and everything about it. I have owned homes here for several years and have family here that work in the jazz clubs. Although, I love to visit the city as much as possible, I have 3 kids and work out of town. Therefore, I try to share my home with others who have the same love for this wonderful city. My apartment is located right on Decatur with a large balcony, perfect for people watching nights with a glass of wine! Being in the heart of the French Quarter, it makes enjoying the many, many music venues, art exhibits, and phenomenal restaurants a walking distance experience. I do hope you enjoy visiting my home as much as my family loves our little get-away piece of paradise!
