About This Listing
One bedroom, one bath 850 sq. ft. apartment has one private bedroom and one full size guest bed at the end of the living room, which is set up studio-style. May easily accommodate up to 4 people. Apartment has 12 ft. ceilings, exposed brick walls, washer/dryer, full kitchen, apple tv, fireplace, courtyard, and wi-fi.
The location is perfect for experiencing New Orleans. The apartment is in the middle of the French Quarter, so the Marigny, Treme, Central Business District, as well as all French Quarter attractions are within walking distance. Public transit and cabs are readily available if needed (ask my for my friend who is a cab driver's info! she offers my guests a discount and will generally be available throughout your stay), and there grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, etc within the immediate area. The apartment is two blocks from Bourbon St., but far enough into the residential area that its quiet and peaceful. The apartment is also close to beautiful Armstrong Park, which is great for taking in a traveling Broadway play, a Sunday opera, or a simple evening stroll.
I should mention that if you are looking for a place to party, somewhere to really let your hair down, there are lots of great places to do so in the neighborhood. However, this apartment is nestled among numerous other residences, so if you truly wanna live like a local, you'll have to keep the partying limited to the bars and streets, and be very respectful of the neighbors. Maintaining a reasonable noise level and consideration for the neighbors is a must.
I will be happy to help you get settled in, find a good, safe parking spot if such a thing exists at the time of your arrival, explain public transit, etc. Please feel free to email me with any questions.
Looking forward to meeting you!

420 friendly, but cigarette smoking outside only. consideration for neighbors a must.
I introduced my Mom and her husband to both New Orleans and their first airbnb experience and it could not have been better thanks to Olvia's support and home. My parents where met and smoothly transitioned in, by the time I arrived 4 hrs later my parents had already enjoy a night out in the French Quarter having great food and drink. Thanks to Olivia's recommendation they had had an amazing first few hours. The home decor is awesome providing a wonderful southern, New Orleans, and culture that makes the whole airbnb the best experience it can be. Thank you!
Olivia met us at the door, showed us her charming, comfortable place, made sure that we knew how to brew coffee and the heater, if needed, and so forth. When we needed an iron, she immediately brought one over. She was a gracious host. Olivia also took time to recommend good places to eat, find the best gumbo in the area, help us locate a handy ATM and so on.
The location of Olivia's place is perfect for seeing the sites in the French Quarter. It is located in the heart of things but is quiet and comfortable. The terrace is a lovely addition. This apartment has all of the amenities you need and is just a great place to stay. I heartily recommend it.
The listing was described and pictured exactly how it appeared. I thought it was cute in the pictures, but it was even more awesome in person. Everything was extremely clean. Olivia had well laid out instructions for the fireplace, TV, flyers for food, and even taxi services.
Olivia texted me the day before to confirm when I was getting in and arrangement for getting the keys. She texted me during my stay to make sure everything was going well and that we were warm enough (so sweet!).
Overall, it was an amazing experience. You can tell Olivia wants you to have a perfect and welcoming stay. I would definitely stay at one of her places again if in New Orleans.
Olivia's place was super comfortable and just steps from all the New Orleans action. Olivia was great at communicating both before and during our stay. We tried her restaurant recommendations and they were great too. If back in NOLA we will definitely stay there again!
Olivia checked up on us just to make sure we had everything we needed. The apartment looked and smelled so clean the minute we stepped foot into it. You also can't beat the location. On a quiet street but just steps away shops, bars, restaurants and the park!
Great apartment in an amazing location! Close to everything in the French Quarter, but in a nice and quiet place. Our host was great, she kept in touch with me beforehand and greeted me upon my arrival. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to travel to New Orleans. The apartment was kept clean and I felt right at home. Loved my experience of staying in such a unique apartment, while in such a unique city!
