ABOUT THE ROOM:
It is modern and cozy. We just repainted and redesigned it making it the perfect little bungalow. The Queen size bed has a feather down pad and all egyptian cotton sheets!! There is a private adjacent bathroom with a small shower, sink, and toilet. The house is over over 150 years old and has some great character with hardwood floors and 10' ceilings. There is a courtyard in the back you are welcome to use and enter through if you would prefer (but you will need to walk through the alley) There is an amazing church 3 blocks away so you can hear the church bells ringing in the distance sometimes, one of my personal favorites. The room is off of the kitchen which you can use anytime.
On street, there is usually plenty of space on our block and it is a good neighborhood. Also we have the Garden district patrol which monitors our neighborhood 24 hours a day.
Easiest way to us from the airport is via taxi which I believes is $33 for up to 2 people or $14 per person for 3 or more.
$3.25 (must have exact change)
The bus is also an option, take the E2 from the airport to the Loyola Ave. / Tulane Ave. stop. Then take the #91 bus to Jackson Avenue. That will put you two blocks from us and takes about 45 minutes :)
Please be courteous of our neighbors, and of course us ;) If you use the kitchen just please pick up after yourselves and place all your dirty dishes in the dishwasher. There is a hamper in the closet for your dirty clothes, the washing machine and dryer is in the laundry room upstairs but it is through one of our rooms so just let us know and we'll be happy to let you in.
We are pretty laid back and can make room for your food in the fridge, we'll have a little list for you when you arrive that should cover any questions you might have.
Chris was very welcoming! After giving us a quick tour of the place, he gave us an overview of the neighborhood (which is very pleasant), local restaurants (which were delicious), and ways to get around the city.
After this, we actually didn't see him very much and were pretty much left to do as we pleased. We occasionally ran into him in the kitchen (the fridge was stocked with water and soft drinks for us) where we exchanged chit chat. He always asked if we were comfortable or if there was anything we needed.
The room itself was cozy and the bed very comfortable; it was the perfect place to nap between sight-seeing excursions.
Overall, I was more comfortable here than at any hotel I have ever stayed at, and I would happily stay there again the next time I visit New Orleans!
Highly recommend. We enjoyed our stay at Chris and Sarah's cozy place. It was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and a great location close to downtown and the French Quarter. Chris gave us a very warm welcome.
We had a wonderful time at Chris' place!
Chris was very attentive, friendly, and helpful. He was always available when we had any questions or needed something (e.g., toilet paper).
Off of Magazine St which made it really convenient to access public transportation and neighborhood restaurants. Highly recommend Lilly's Cafe a few blocks away!
It was also close enough to the French quarters through public transportation (about a 10-15-minute bus ride).
The place was really clean, orderly, and comfortable! We had the luxury of adjusting the temperature to whatever we want, which was quite nice because it was deathly hot when we were there. Chris kept the fridge fully-stocked with water and soda. We must've had at least 10 bottles because of the heat!
Chris is a very kind and attentive host. We felt very much like home. Everything is as described, even better. Very convenient & safe location. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Nola. Thank you Chris.
Chris welcomed me upon my arrival and gave me a quick summary of things to see in the neighborhood, good restaurants and some other need to know things. He was always very responsive to my inquiries. The room was perfect - comfortable bed, private entrance and a large TV in the room (although I didn't even actually have time to turn it on). I pretty much kept to myself while I was in town (was there for a microbiology conference and that kept me very busy) but Chris offered his private number should I have any inquiries. They just made everything super easy - stay here; you can't go wrong.
Our stay was delightful. The neighborhood is nice and safe even at night, the room was clean and had a huuuuge TV with its own bathroom and back door, and our host was extremely helpful and friendly. A++ would stay again.
Cozy is the best word to describe it. Location is perfect, not far from the downtown. Clean room, quiet and very welcoming helpful Chris. I would strongly recommend this place for anyone visiting New Orleans. Don't hesitate, this is the perfect place
About the Host, Sarah & Chris
Thanks for checkin out our airbnb page, we are Sarah and Chris, we're cousins running an awesome bnb in Chris' beautiful NOLA home. We started hosting on bnb end of 2012 and now I live in Nome Alaska most of the time. We still run the joint and I handle some of the booking and Chris handles the check ins at the house.
We're super friendly (like all New Orleanians) and are polar opposites. I'm a bit on the bombastic side while Chris takes care of the slightly more reserved and logical side of things.
We are always happy to help and we both grew up in the city so if you have any questions pre stay or during don't hesitate to ask.
