About this listing
***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!

Please no smoking in the apartment; use the side yard if you wish to smoke.
Please do not gather in front of the house after 10pm. The only issues we've ever had with my neighbors involved loud groups in front of the house late at night. Thank you.

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.
