This apartment is the front corner of a classic New Orleans duplex from the 1930s, fully updated in 2008. Perfect for parents visiting students at Tulane or Loyola, and for visiting scholars. Close to the Saint Charles streetcar, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. My active senior parents live on one side, and we live on this side when not traveling. Large monthly discount makes it good for digital nomads too.

Where you’ll be

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

Our house is in what they call the university area of Uptown. It’s a safe and secure area very close to Tulane's campus and about a half mile from Loyola's campus. It is just off of Carrollton Ave, a main thoroughfare through Uptown that has many great restaurants.

We are right in the center of everything Uptown! Adams Street Grocery and Deli is just 4 blocks away (great Po-Boys!). Two shopping streets with several blocks of cafes, restaurants, bookstores, and boutiques are within walking distance. One shopping area is Maple Street which is 4 blocks away. The other area is Oak Street, which is 7 blocks away, and contains the popular Maple Leaf Jazz Club (Rebirth Brass Band plays most every Tuesday night) and Jacques-Imo's Restaurant. The famous St. Charles streetcar line is just 5 blocks away, and Audubon Park is a pleasant 10 block walk from the apartment.

We are also centrally located within New Orleans, making it easy to get just about anywhere. It is only 4-5 miles down Claiborne Ave to Downtown including the Superdome, the Convention Center, and the CBD (Central Business District). It is 5 miles to the French Quarter, and 10 miles to the airport. The house is also only 2.5 miles to the Mardi Gras parade route on St Charles, and 4.5 miles to Jazz Fest.

If you are a runner (or walker), running along the streetcar tracks under the oaks and past the beautiful homes is a very popular thing to do in this neighborhood. Audubon Park is great as well--there is a shaded 2 mile loop that is very popular with the locals.

We are a retired couple who love to travel. In 2017/18 we spent 7 months traveling around South East Asia, often staying in AirBNBs. We lived in San Francisco for 30 years before retiring in New Orleans for its fantastic music scene (Brian is a drummer). You can find our travel blog by Googling "bltierney travel adventure".

During your stay

Our place is only available while we are traveling, which we do about half the year. My parents live next door, and are available to answer questions and restock supplies. My father can give advice on the local jazz scene and Jazz Fest.
