Relax in New Orleans in this 1857 home, one block from the French Quarter, and a walk to Frenchman St. and the river. The space contains two bedrooms, living room, kitchen/dining room, bath, patio. It is romantic and charming, with brick fireplaces, high ceilings, lots of exposed original cypress, and other beautiful details. The vibe in the home is much like that of the block and the city: historically and culturally rich, comfortable, and fonky. We love it here, and hope you will, too.
Those whose New Orleans plans include loud parties or high-volume music in their lodging space are encouraged to look elsewhere. My teen daughter and I often stay in the house, and unfortunately the ceilings and walls are thin. We ask that guests keep noise to a minimum after 11pm on weekdays. Same goes for those hoping to arrive with pets or a smoking habit - sorry. Beyond that, we are very relaxed. Our wish is for our guests to feel happy and at home.
We have a minimum stay of 4 nights required for any major festivals or holidays.

I'm a fourth-generation New Orleanian. The city's music and culture are the blood that runs in my veins. A close friend of ten years finally visited New Orleans and told me, "Ah, now I understand you, Bev." If I'm in a bad mood, all I need to do is step out into the streets; some stranger will invariably call me 'baby' or say something outrageous or give me a hug, and all will be well. I also spend a lot of time in Latin America and the Caribbean, especially Haiti, working with social justice movements. I'm a writer, as well, publishing books and articles on what equitable and just economies and societies around the world look like, or could look like.
Because I travel so much, Seun Adebola helps me to manage the airbnb. I'm making a well-educated guess that you will love him.
