The Space

***Now available, a second unit in my house! See also my other listing: airbnb.com/rooms/940984
All the reviews about location, size, host helpfulness, etc. apply to this unit, with one exception:
Our neighbor on this side occasionally has parties on Fri/Sat nights. So, if members of your group are light sleepers, please first check the availability of my other unit.***

Just two blocks from the French Quarter and 0.7 miles from the busy parts of Bourbon, Royal, Decatur and Frenchmen Sts, less than a mile from Jackson Square, and a walkable 1.4 miles to the Jazz Fest Fairgrounds: you will walk everywhere! (Plenty of free on-street parking in our neighborhood.)

Right between the African American Cultural Museum and St. Augustine's Church, our tree-lined block is older than the city itself, having been part of the original Native American portage road that linked the River to the Bayou.
The quaint beauty of our block has been captured in the HBO series, Treme, as DJ Davis's locale, with occasional on-site filming including 'his' house and those of his neighbors.

All the best live music and bars are within a short walk of our home. The perfect distance, we think, for convenience to all the parties, but the relaxation of the oldest integrated residential neighborhood in the country.

And history lives on throughout the year, with frequent Second Lines and Mardi Gras Indian processions on our block.

Come for a weekend or come for a month!

This spacious (1100sqft) furnished apartment in a historic 1870's house has a full kitchen, two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, and a huge living room/ dining room with a two queen sized sleeper sofas.

  • Great location, clean and comfortable. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

  • Everything was great inside the house--comfortable beds, clean rooms and tables, and clean bathroom. The area is said to be "sketchy" but it should be fine if you take a cab back in the evening.

  • Great location. Very close to the French Quarter. Would recommend to friends!

  • We had a great experience! 3 couples stayed here (6 people) and it was nice and spacious. Hosts were very helpful when we parked to close to the stop sign!
    The only suggestion I have would be to add a couple of full length mirrors in the bedrooms to help with getting ready. (Although, 3 ladies in the restroom sharing the 1 mirror was funny!)

  • We stayed here for a weekend and really enjoyed it. The place is in a good neighborhood and had all the necessities. We didn't get a chance to meet gregory but everything worked out smoothly with getting the keys and returning them. He is really responsive and was kind enough to let us leave our bags there after having checked out. The neighborhood is nice and was quiet when we stayed there. Everything is within walking distance. We recommend!

  • Gregory's place is in a perfect location to experience some great stuff in New Orleans. I enjoyed the 10 min or so walk to The French Quarter and Frenchmen Street many times with my friends. Easy access to the Freeway and other large streets made it great for getting around.

    The apartment itself is a mixed bag. While it is large and in a great location, it is quite minimal and somewhat in disrepair. A lot of things seem to be loud, old and creaky... especially the doors. The beds are not very comfortable and could use a mattress topper. The A/C units leak water, be careful not to leave anything under them.

    Overall, this place is great if you just need a crash pad and are out and about like we were most of your stay. However, if you're looking for comfort, I would find a different listing.

  • This appartment is ideally situated, big and clean. I recommend it.

  • I came to NOLA with a few of my best friends to celebrate my birthday weekend and this apartment was one of the many reasons this weekend surpassed all of my expectations! The apartment was HUGE, included everything we needed, and had an ideal location! Gregory was responsive to all of my questions and was a wonderful host. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone and strongly encourage a visit!

  • A group of us stayed here for my Bachelorette weekend, and the apartment was perfect! Gregory left us directions to local amenities (grocery store, gas station, closest bar), a pile of maps with helpful tourist hints, and was super friendly! He even pointed us towards a concert in Louis Armstrong Park when we arrived, which was a great way to start off the weekend.

    Walking brisquely, you can be in the heart of the Quarter within 10min, Frenchman St within 7, it's 15min to the water front and close to a few bus lines. Sidenote: St Louis Cemetery No. 1 is super close- be sure to check it out!

    The apartment was clean and very comfortably slept 7 of us for the weekend. An overall wonderful visit and I would definitely recommend his apartment to friends, and stay here again.

  • This apartment was PERFECT for what we needed it for. We were a group of 6 ladies in town for a bachelorette party. We knew we'd be spending the majority of our time out exploring New Orleans, and really just needed a nice, quiet space to go home to each night. The apt. is about a 5-minute walk from Bourbon Street, but just far away enough to be in a quieter part of town, which was nice. It was also about a 15-minute walk from Cafe du Monde (best place for beignets!) The apartment was bigger than I expected. It was perfect for 6 people, and probably could even have crammed in (comfortably) 2 more. It was clean, had AC, enough towels for everyone. There were also clean dishes to use as well as plenty of toiletries available (body wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc.), which was a bonus! Gregory, the owner, was super responsive the whole time, and was very friendly and helpful in providing information about the city for us. All in all, a lovely experience, and I will definitely be checking back to see if this apt. is available if I come back to New Orleans with a group!

About
My wife and I have finally settled down, buying our first house in New Orleans after having lived and studied in San Francisco, Jackson MS and New Jersey since college. We absolutely love this city, and feel that it is the current American Bohemia, vibrant with art, music and creativity at every corner.
