Actually I am a local painter here in the city and this is one of my paintings but in this room you will also find a large Bobby Cook and Johnny Donnels New Orleans photography
One block off of Magazine Street in the Garden District.
Close to great shops, restaurants, bars and much more.
1.5 mi. to Superdome
Private Entrance available
AWESOME food like Juan's, Maya's, Cochon etc.. Great shopping, cool swap stores like Funky Monkey and Buffalo. The alligator museum, Branch Out Sustainable Clothes, antique stores, cafes, cigar shops, head shops, you name it and it is around the corner.
Some famous stuff within a half mile are:
WWI DDay Museum
Contemporary Arts Center
Superdome is 1.5mi., about a 20 minute walk through our pretty city
Streetcar is 4 blocks away on St. Charles (ride to french quarter is 5 to 10 min)
Magazine St. Bus is a block away (super clean and drops you right on Canal St., the edge of the quarter)
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 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 welcomed us when we arrived and gave us a bunch of information (pamphlets, maps and a Lonely Planet Book) on where to go and what to do in New Orleans. He recommended Cochon for dinner (was amazing), Surrey's for breakfast (also amazing), and let us know where everything was around the neighborhood. The Garden District felt very safe, even at night and we walked everywhere to save money and work the great NOLA food.
The room was exactly as described. Clean and private with a walkout into the backyard equipped with some patio furniture. Overall our experience was excellent! Chris and Sarah were great hosts!
The room and bathroom were lovely set-up and everything was clean and fresh. The kitchen, and living were great and welcoming. Chis couldn’t be there to meet me in person, but left perfect instructions to enter the house.
The directions to find the house via public transportation/ bus and trolley were spot on. This location with its neighborhood cannot be beat in terms of getting an authentic New Orleans experience, without the rowdy fake/touristy French Quarter. I hope to get the time to come back and will have Chris’s place saved for my future places to stay.
The room was amazing.
So much space, comfortable bed, coke and water available in the fridge.
Pretty much anything we could have needed was there.
There was a draw full of guidebooks, menus for restaurant's etc. As well as the list that was left for us. We certainly tried out a few of the bars.
The only downside would be the lack of water pressure in the shower.
I probably wouldn't stay here in winter due to that fact, but it was hot and we didn't really need long hot showers.
My partner and I would stay here again.
We didn't meet Chris as we were in and out at different times but he was lovely and responsive. Wish we could have shared a beer.
Our flight out didn't leave until 4pm and Chris was more than happy for us to use the space until we headed to the airport.
If you're after a nice place to stay in the Garden District of New Orleans, I can recommend this place. Camp Street is just one block back from Magazine Street, which is full of interesting bars, restaurants, boutiques and galeries.
Hi, I can thoroughly recommend a stay with Sarah and Chris. The house is lovely and it is in a great area. My room was very pleasant and having direct access to the back yard was a bonus as I was able to sit and enjoy the New Orleans sunshine. I didn't get to meet Sarah but Chris took great care of me.
Chris and Sarah's place was very comfortable. The location was great. Chris was very friendly.
I have only positive things to say about my stay.
I arrived late in the afternoon, and I had no trouble getting into the house. The room is in the back of the house past the kitchen. It’s very private, and thoughtfully appointed. There is a closet with hangers and a dresser so you can put all of your things away. The bathroom is fully stocked so that you will not have to ask for anything. The wifi was easy to access. There were two room keys for my use, and a printout of all the neighborhood information that you might want to quickly consult before heading out for your day. There are two windows and an exterior door, so if you want light or fresh air, you have that control. I didn’t watch tv, but there is one in the room. I’m pointing out these things because really anything you’d want from a conventional hotel room, you will find here. There was occasionally some neighborhood construction noise after 9 in the morning (yes, sometimes I slept in...) but you would probably experience that anywhere in NO right now. Chris was really friendly and helpful, and made sure that I knew that I had access to the kitchen and living room in addition to my room.
The neighborhood is great, very convenient to almost anywhere and with public transportation close by. One day it rained biblically and although I couldn’t get through to a taxi company on the phone, I just walked up to St. Charles and hailed one. I did a lot of walking, and the residential area to the west, is really stunning and worth wandering around. There are numerous restaurants and bars nearby, of all price points.
The only thing I would have liked is slightly more water pressure from the shower! But I have long hair and it takes forever to get the soap out.
Finally, my departing flight was in the early evening, and they allowed me to leave the house at my leisure. What hotel does that??
I highly recommend this Airbnb.
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.
