Cosy Uptown Apartment!
Completely private, one-bedroom apartment in uptown, one of New Orleans' best neighborhoods and 1 1/2 blocks from world famous Magazine St. Everything you need is within walking distance -- coffeeshops, grocery stores, casual and fancy restaurants, boutiques and pharmacies. In the very safest part of old New Orleans, Whole Foods is two blocks away, Audubon Park is a 10 minute walk and the Magazine St. bus runs straight downtown every 20 minutes. The St. Charles streetcar is a scenic 8 block walk through our lovely Uptown neighborhood and, during Mardi Gras, 9 parades start their route 5 blocks away.
The apartment has a private entrance, one large bedroom with a queen sized bed, a large sitting/living room with cable TV/DVD and a twin-size sofa bed, and a full bath. It is a ground floor apartment in a family home and has been recently renovated with new heating and air conditioning. It has a small "Pullman" kitchen with a microwave/convection oven, mini-fridge and a washer and dryer. It is spacious, has ample closet space and is fully stocked with linens and glassware. Utilities are included and maid service is extra.
PLEASE NOTE: We have upgraded the bed to a queen.
Guests will have use of apartment.
Interaction with Guests
The host family lives upstairs and Ben is retired , so he is usually available for help and advice! He will check in regularly via e-mail to assure your comfort.
Just be respectful of the property and no smoking inside.
Benjamin was a welcoming host at his spacious apartment in uptown New Orleans.
The apartment is spacious, charming and very comfortable. Beautiful uptown neighborhood close to shopping and dining on Magazine Street and close to Tulane and Loyola Universities.
Benjamin greeted us cheerfully upon our arrival. He was quick to respond to my inquiries when I was looking to rent a room. There was no delay in correspondence which was comforting. His home and his abilities as a host made you feel as though you were staying in a professional bed and breakfast. Look no further if you are wanting a place in the New Orleans area. And if you only have a few days to spend in the French quarter, as we did, there is no need to have a car. The bus is extremely convenient.
Benjamin is a fantastic host. Since he lives upstairs, he was easily accessible to show me around the apartment when i first arrived. The apartment was clean, homey, and perfect for our stay. Highly recommend this location.
We really enjoyed our stay in Uptown. This is a basement suite in Benjamin's lovely home, so we had lots of space and were very comfortable there. The kitchen was great for heating up food from the nearby Whole Foods; not really set up for cooking but we were able to eat a lot of meals "in" which is so much nicer than staying at a hotel. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the double bed was a bit challenging as we're accustomed to a larger bed. Benjamin was a very generous and welcoming host, and we appreciated his hospitality very much. I can't say enough great things about the neighborhood -- safe and quiet, and so many interesting destinations within walking distance, with an easy bus/car ride to downtown as well.
Benjamin had an excellent spot for us to stay in New Orleans. Visiting the delicious coffee shops down the street was a morning routine. The apartment was clean, cute, and had all the amenities we could have wanted. The full bed was a little challenging as we are used to a king, but it was still a fantastic place to stay! THANK YOU!
We were out touring from morning til evening and didn't spend much time in the apartment, but we really liked the space, which is a mother-in-law suite set below Benjamin's house. Although it's evident from the picture, note that the room has a double bed; we're used to sleeping on a queen so found ourselves elbowing each other in the night. Benjamin has thoughtfully outfitted the suite in all ways, and we especially appreciated the antique radio set to WWOZ. It's a lovely, quiet uptown neighborhood with easy parking. A car is fairly essential for this location. The convenience to Magazine Street is a great selling point as is Audobon Park. I also need to put in a plug for Tartine, which we found one morning by searching for "breakfast" in a map app. It's about a mile or so away. We had a divine quiche and baguette with triple-creme cheese, butter, and jam. Highly recommended.
Benjamin's apartment is spacious and in a great Uptown location. A well stocked refrigerator plus two piece of King Cake were a nice surprise. Highly recommended.
I am originally from the Midwest and came here in the late 60's to go to Tulane. I have lived all over town and spent 15 years in the French Quarter, then in Faubourg St. John and have been 25 years here on Nashville Ave. Due to some time spent on the Ivory Coast, my French is fairly fluent and I have some Italian. After Katrina, I lost most of my clients and went into the hotel business and managed two hotels in the French Quarter. I love this city and know a bit about it - its' history, attractions, and places to eat and drink
