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.
This place is fantastic. It's really a large private apartment in a nice Uptown home. Comfy new(?) queen bed, separate sitting room, bathroom, small kitchen. A/C, TV, and lots of books to read. The host lives in the main house upstairs. He will take good care of you, pre-stocking the kitchen with goodies, but he will otherwise leave you quite alone unless you need him.
The apartment is tucked away on a lovely, tree-lined street, and although traffic is relatively busy on this street (at least right now, because several other streets in the neighborhood are being worked on), we always found free street parking right in front of the house.
It's quiet, safe neighborhood, a 2 minute walk from Magazine St. (the #11 bus will take you directly to Canal St. and the edge of the French Quarter if you don' t have a car) and a 10 minute walk from the St. Charles streetcar.
Seriously, you would be a fool not to stay here!
Benjamin was the perfect host: accomodating, friendly and resourceful. We communicated via texts and emails and his replies were always quick and helpful. He anticipated our needs by providing detailed info about public transportation, directions, and recommendations. His Airbnb was absolutely lovely-- inside and out. Very private and beautifully decorated. The Uptown neighborhood is a great location for walking to Tulane and Loyola campuses, Audubon Park, as well as several cafes, shops, and Whole Foods on Magazine Street. We would definitely stay here again during our next visit to New Orleans!
I loved this property. It had everything my partner and I needed to feel comfortable and "at home". Mr. Benjamin was prompt and accomodating. The refrigerator even had water, milk, juice and yogurt. There were fruit and pastries too! We got in very late and needed to get a quick bite-it was kitty corner to a street filled with great restaurants, and Mr. Benjamin gave us some suggestions, since it was late. The actual facilities were very clean and comfortable. My partner and I are still reminiscing of the most comfortable bed ever!! We slept in both mornings, which is something we NEVER do. That's how comfortable the bed is. And then there was all the interesting books and gadgets in the property--we drank our tea/coffee and walked around admiring all the antiques, reading and sharing. Finally, the neighborhood is beautiful and safe. We walked all over, caught a cab to the airport and from downton, but we spent the mornings just walking up and down a street that was filled with shops, restaurants and cafes. Also the street cars are very nearby. It was great. Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short due to a family emergency, but it was worth the 2 nights we were there. This is definitely a do-ver!! This is the best way to get a REAL taste of NOLA. Thank you Mr. Benjamin!!!
Benjamin was very kind and showed me around upon my arrival. I did not see him after that…which was perfect for me. I like my privacy and this place was PERFECT. The pictures are accurate…but it can not give you the coziness that you will find once you open the outside door and walk in to a small outdoor entrance with the white lights. New Orleans for sure! The neighborhood is beautiful and I never felt unsafe. Parking was easy and lots of things within walking distance…including catching the trolley. And less than a $20 cab ride from Bourbon street..if you should need. An absolutely beautiful place to stay and SO much nicer than a hotel. It was a weekend "home". Perfect. Would love to stay here again.
The listing was about as accurate as one could get. The location was perfect for our needs and the neighborhood better than we had expected. The host had generously placed small bottles of milk , water and fresh squeezed orange juice as well as yogurt for our use. In addition, there were several tangerines in a basket in the same mini-kitchen area. The area also had coffee,and tea as well as the creamer and sugar. A small booklet was filled with additional information re: buss routs, trolly schedules, etc. The apt was very clean and very comfortable from sofas in the sitting room, books, magazines,chairs, table and chairs as well as appropriate places for luggage. Closet space was available in several locations. The apt was very quiet even though on a somewhat busy street since the apt was in the back of the property. Bathroom amenties were fresh and we were supplied with additional towels, though what was visible was more than ample. Though the apt is in the lower level of the home, it is very bright and has several windows that open on to the garden in the rear of the house. We would most definitely recommend this apt and when visiting NOLA again would try to book this apt.
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
