This house sits on a residential street. There's a private entrance, 9-foot ceilings, off-street parking, wood floors & a porch that you alone have access to.

COVID UPDATE: My homeless 67-year-old neighbor has been sleeping under my house since the pandemic started. Please do not call the cops on him. It is unlikely that he will interact with guests, but I do want you to know the situation.

The space
This room comes with its own private entrance as well as a private porch overlooking a leafy, residential street in Bywater. A shared bathroom is right next to your bedroom. The space combines traditional New Orleans architecture (transoms, large windows, wood floors) with modern amenities (walk-in closets, wi-fi, central air and heat).

Guest access
You will have a completely private bedroom. Bathroom is shared. This house is NOT a shotgun, so if you want some privacy, it's totally achievable. The bedroom features a double bed that sleeps two, an armchair, a dresser and a closet.

By the way, this is not a whole-home rental. Guests are renting the bedroom and bathroom. That being said, you are welcome to store food in the fridge or use the microwave (but don't expect the kitchen to be perfectly clean since it's not part of the rental--Bryan and I live here and cook daily.) We have two indoor cats. Cats are welcome; no dogs, please.

Other things to note
Please again note that two indoor cats live here. The cats are friendly but are occasionally loud. They usually have access to your room, but if you don't enjoy their presence, it's possible (but somewhat difficult) to keep them out.

Thousands of people from around the world have slept in my spare bedroom, which I think is cool. Although I don't interact with guests much these days for COVID reasons, some of them have gone on to become friends; all of them enrich my life and my city. I'm a Louisiana native and had a conflicted relationship with New Orleans until Hurricane Katrina, which made me appreciate this place and want to be part of its recovery. My interests include running, pole dancing, biking, traveling, debating the relative merits of nearby restaurants, going to shows, etc.

During your stay
I work from home and may need the back part of the house to myself. It will not affect access to your room in the least. Most evenings, I am around and happy to split a bottle of wine with you.
