Fall 2013 update: next door neighbor's ancient water oak was toppled during Hurricane Isaac on August 31, 2012. Clean-up and reconstruction of neighbor's house is on-going. So far there has been no noise, but there is a storage pod in his driveway.
Here's some more information from the owner and a recent guest:
Unless you have a car, you’ll probably need to take public transport to get to the more interesting neighborhoods further east (French Quarter, Treme, the Bywater, Faubourg Marigny).
Nearby, however, is the world famous Rock ‘n’ Bowl Lanes, a mere four blocks away, with incredible local music every night of the week. The Olde College Inn Restaurant is next door to the Lanes, and Mikimoto Restaurant (Japanese) is two blocks further up Carrollton Avenue. Another neighborhood, Riverbend, with many restaurants and one of the best music venues in town (the Maple Leaf Bar on Oak Streeet) is about 25 minutes away by foot, down Carrollton Avenue toward the Mississippi River.
The buses run every 30 or 60 minutes so you have to plan to get out in time. The buses take about 25 minutes to get downtown. The streetcar ride to downtown is scenic but 35+ minutes—and takes longer at this moment because the final stretch is currently being repaired. The buses also don’t run late—though the streetcar does. The taxi at night ran about $17 to the French Quarter.
2013 update: On-going streetcar repairs mean that parts of the St. Charles/Carrollton line are out of operation. Shuttle buses over the out-of-service portions of the line are available.
Home away from home! John was a wonderful host and we could not have been happier with our stay. The apartment was clean, well furnished and a quite relaxing retreat. Best of all it's located within minutes of St. Charles Ave, Street cars and all things "The Big Easy"! We had fun John, sorry we had to leave soon & we will definitely be back, cheers!
John's place was great: clean, comfortable, and quiet. John was totally accommodating as a host—my fellow traveler and I got in to New Orleans relatively late at night, and John had arranged for us to easily access the apartment whenever we arrived. He checked in with us a few times throughout our stay to make sure we were well-stocked in supplies and enjoying our time in New Orleans. (We were!)
The apartment is located a bit out of the city center, but is only a short walk from bus and streetcar stops. It may not be the locale someone would pick to spend a raucous week in the heart of New Orleans, but it's the one I'd pick for a nice, cozy base from which to plan daytime activities—after which it's a welcome retreat for some nighttime peace and quiet.
Overall a great choice for my time in New Orleans.
We had a wonderful stay. John was very accommodating. His place was just what we needed. It was very clean and the location was perfect.
Great place to stay, very quiet, wonderful bed, and good access to busses and trolleys. Just don't eat at the red star Chinese restaurant. It's name says it all. One star, and red as a warning. Johns a great host and gave us our privacy.
This was the perfect spot for our vacation. The apartment was lovely and the neighborhood was great, and very quiet. John was a fantastic host who was there when we needed him. I would highly recommend John and this apartment!
John's apartment was beautiful and everything that we expected! Our flight was late getting in (12:30a.m.) and we arrived from the airport around 1:00 a.m. John was kind enough to wait up for us, let us in (although he had already provided the code previously through e-mail), and showed us around. He was a wonderful host and was available for any needs we had (extra facecloths). The apartment was easy walking distance to the buses (we took #39 at Carrollton/Pritchard Place-on the side of the street that the monastery is on) This bus dropped us off at Saratoga/Canal and we could get on the same bus at the same stop when it was time to go home) The apartment is clean, bright, and the bed is amazingly comfortable. John also provided brochures, bus schedules and phone books in a drawer in the living room. Thank you John for a wonderful airbnb experience. We would love to return again and stay with you in the future!

First time in New Orleans. It was awesome. John was a great host. Very nice. The apartment was just as described. My family loved staying there. Good location. When I come back. I hope to stay here again. Thanks for having us John!
Wir hatten fünf super Tage in New Orleans. Johns Apartment ist im Uptown gelegen, nahe der St.-Charles-Streetcar. Von dort erreicht man viele Ecken von New Orleans - wie das French Quarter oder den Garden District- pefekt, auch wenn man kein Auto zur Verfügung hat. Das Apartment ist sehr großzügig und super gemütlich. Alles was wir brauchten war vorhanden - auch Handtücher etc. Es war fast wie im Hotel. John hat sich toll um uns gekümmert und uns sehr herzlich Willkommen geheißen. Wir würden sehr gern, sehr bald wieder kommen.
We enjoyed this cozy apartment. There was a kitchen we used to cook in and a little dining nook we enjoyed. Plus, we had our own entrance, so we didn't have to bother our host. The house was a few blocks from the trolley and buses, so we were able to get to the French Quarter with no problems. It was also safe to walk back and forth even in the middle of the night. Overall, I reccomend staying here.
We enjoyed our stay. John was super and very friendly. Our drive on St. Charles Ave. to French Quarter was interesting. Groceries only four blocks away. Hope to get back to New Orleans and stay at John's.
