About This Listing
Welcome to my victorian mini mansion .Come stay in one of the best private , lavishly decorated rooms in the historical Bywater ,that sleeps 3 ,close to the french quarter. The house and neighborhood will charm you with a stay youll never forget. -
The Petit Palace was built in 1913. She has a relaxed and welcoming feel just like a southern lady should. I have been decorating and rebuilding this beauty since 2002 and it is definately unique. The 12 foot ceilings , hardwood floors, and lovely clawfoot tubs will take you back to a slower time and welcome you to the big easy.
Guests have access to the downstairs theatre lounge , formal dining room, down home kitchen, and laundry . The kitchen and laundry hours are 8:30 am until 10 pm.
Interaction with Guests
I will be at the house most of the time and am happy to talk about or suggest any local outings. Also I am available at all times for any issues you may have or room requests. Sometimes I may be available for airport pickup or drop off.
The bywater is the newest hot spot of new orleans and as far as Im concerned the jewel of the city.This is the real new orleans.The people and architecture of the neighborhood are colorfull, creative, and friendly.
There is a bus stop on the corner and its a ten minute bike ride or a twenty minute walk to the french quarter. Of couse a taxi gets you there in a flash for about 6 dollars. I also have a few bikes if you like to pedal.
Other Things to Note
If anyone is allergic to dogs, I live with 3 tiny chihuahuas that never leave my room and are very quiet on the bottom floor.
This is a non smoking house. No unregistered guests overnight, please.
Felina's house was comfortable and full of character and personal touches. She was extremely available and hospital, and took time to sit down with us and answer questions and offer suggestions for fun things to do in the neighborhood. Amazing spot--relatively close to lots of places to eat and drink, and Felina has bikes that guests can use if they want. The place was quiet at night. Would definitely stay here again!
This was my first time doing Air BnB and I hope all my hosts in the future are as awesome as Felina! She was so kind and took the time and give us advice to local shops and restaurants. We weren't around much to see her after check in but she makes sure you feel welcome in every way possible. The house is wonderful with lots of New Orleans charm. It's located in a central spot,about 10 minute drive to French quarter and other popular destinations. I know where I'll be staying next time I come to town!
Felina was a kind host, very friendly and helpful. She went out of her way to make me feel at home. Description and photos were spot on. Love the charm and character she put into decorating! Place looked great. It was fairly clean and well kept, but it's certainly old and somewhat worn- same character as its neighborhood. Come here for authentic New Orleans!
Felina greeted us at the door with a warm and inviting smile. Her passion to her home and design was clearly evident. The house was beautiful and accommodating. Her evening recommendation proved to be one the best hangouts I've ever been to. She introduced us to another couple in the house and we made immediate fiends with them. Felina was warm and open, honest and funny. It was a ln absolute success. The rooms are beautiful and quintessentially New Orleans. I'll definitely stay with her again.

About the Host, Felina Nicole
Im a friendly world traveler originally from los angeles that finally was seduced by the new orleans magic and settled down here in 2001 and bought my house in 2002. As you can see , my home is my castle and I love to decorate. I love tattooing, music, dancing,and the arts and really all things creative. I have three strangely quiet tiny chihuahuas that stay in my room that I love. Im mostly a homebody artist . Welcome to mamas house, its built for comfort and style, stay a spell.
