Our quaint, Newly Renovated Guest Cottage is nestled behind our Historic Home (originally built in 1872 as the servant's quarters) in the heart of one of New Orleans’ most Historic Neighborhoods: Esplanade Ridge / Treme. The Guest Quarters has a cool balcony that overlooks the shared courtyard, and a pool. Come make yourself home in our 2 story cottage. The bedroom is upstairs with access to the balcony and the bathroom is nestled downstairs with the kitchen and living area.

The guest house can sleep up to 4 as the queen bed sleeps 2 and the sleeper sofa downstairs also sleeps 2.

Relax in our Courtyard alongside our Greek Column lined pool, or people watch on our front porch. The courtyard is well appointed with a small Victorian bistro set and a gas grill.

Our home is in the middle of all of the Big Easy Action, uniquely situated with the highly acclaimed Treme on one side and the Historic 7th ward on the other! The guesthouse is 9-14 blocks from the French Quarter / 15-25 minute walk (depending on where in Quarter you go). Located just blocks from the infamous Frenchmen St in the Marigny; as well as being within walking distance to City Park, the New Orleans Museum of Art, local grocery stores (Conseco's and Terranova's), restaurants such as Lola’s, Nona Mia, Sante Fe, Cafe Degas, and more!

Ken and April's place was exactly as described and perfect for our stay in New Orleans! We met Ken when we were checking in and he had some ideas for us about places to see while we were in town. The space was very clean and perfectly appointed. Strong AC which was great for us west coasters who don't deal well with humidity :-) It was a 20 minute walk to the French Quarter and an easy Uber back. The washer and dryer in the unit were a life saver as we had been on the road for 2 weeks. We absolutely plan to book with April and Ken again when we come back to New Orleans!

April and Ken's place was a great home base for my trip to New Orleans. It was clean and comfortable, and I loved sitting on the balcony with a book. The neighborhood was spectacular - 20 minute walk to the French Quarter, 20 minute walk to Mid City, and bus stops just a block from the apartment. I'd absolutely stay here again!

April and Ken were wonderful, generous hosts and the place is lovely and close to everything. Even better than the photos. Had everything we needed and the ensuite laundry was a bonus! Loved it so much we booked a third night.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at April and Ken's guesthouse for a trip to New Orleans. This was our first Airbnb experience and we were very pleased with these accommodations. April is very responsive and it was nice having them on the property when we had questions. The house is very charming, clean and welcoming and in a safe neighborhood right off on of the main roads. We felt safe with a locked courtyard and front door. The house is about a 15-20 minute walk from the bustle of the French Quarter but each morning we took a quick Uber ride down instead. Uber was a GREAT way to get around for the week, a rental car is certainly not needed. This location is also perfect if you want to explore the entire city. We visited other districts and the location is great being about halfway between the French Quarter and City Park. Also, having a full kitchen available was perfect as we bought groceries and made breakfast at the house each morning before going out for the day. We loved staying here for the week and I would certainly recommend it to a friend or stay again when back in NOLA - thanks April & Ken!

April And Ken User ProfileApril And Ken is a superhost.

April: 32, engineer and furniture addict....Ken: 37, renovation guru, and an all around MacGyver!
We are a recently married, young professional couple who now considers NOLA our heart and our home! We both are transplants and absolutely love everything about the Big Easy! We live on the historic Esplanade Ave, but love every single part of this city, from Uptown to the Marigny! We can give you great advice on where to site see, shop, bar-hop, find great eats, or guide you to hidden jewels off the beaten path for some extra local flavor! Our dream vacation begins in Greece and ends in Vanuatu...
