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
No pets please due to allergy concerns, thanks!
I am totally flexible and available to accommodate any check-in or check-out times however, for regularity sake I suggest:
(sometimes if there is an overlap, ie. early airport arrival, I can hold your bags until a previous guest checks out)
Check in after 3pm
Check out before 11am
Please leave your keys on bed when you check out
I provide FREE bikes to all of our guests to borrow.
If you do borrow a bike, we provide you with a lock for your bike.
Please return the locks and keys with the bikes.
and THANK YOU for staying with me!
A great cosy and clean place to stay. The bicycles were a great perk as it allows you to explore the city without having to flag a taxi. I would stay here again. Thanks!
The house was awesome, super easy to get into with the directions. It rained on me one day and there was a stack of umbrellas by the washing machine- super helpful and grateful!
stayed at Andrew's place in Bywater with my girlfriend for three nights. The accomodations were comfortable, clean, and his book of recommendations was great! Extra points for the bikes - an important element for getting to other areas of the city. The Bywater neighborhood was awesome - friendly people and we always felt very safe. We highly recommend staying here for a unique New Orleans experience that you won't soon forget!
The listing was accurate, the neighbourhood good. It was disappointing not to meet Andrew, so we felt we missed out on a bit of local information.
This place was really great, it felt a lot like my own home. Very clean and quaint. Very true to the description on airbnb. The welcome zine gave me a good idea of the city, and pointed me in the right directions. I never ran into Andrew, but I felt welcomed into his home. Judging by the way the house looked only, I wish I could have met Andrew! Seemed like my kind of people. Would go back.
First impression of the area was that it was a bad area of New Orleans, but it turned out to be OK. Bed was comfy and heat was plenty warm for January. House isn't very sound proof, but it did the job for one night passing through town. Much cheaper than an area hotel. So not a bad value for the price.
The apartment was clean and pleasant to live in! Wifi was great and we could do laundry too. It was also a good place to meet different people who were similarly exploring New Orleans. The little crash course manual that Andrew provided was very useful in helping us navigate the area and find good dining places. The only drawback is that it is about 25 minutes walk to the French Quarters.

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!
