About This Listing
Reasonable price and an amazing location! Experience the Real French Quarter!
Suite upstairs in an 1825 Creole house. We have a fantastic garden that we share with our neighbors. This is a lovely suite with a small bedroom and larger sitting room with a balcony and french doors where you can sit and enjoy the garden. Your private bathroom with tub/shower is adjacent. A utility room downstairs is equipped with a frig, microwave, water kettle, toaster and sink that you SHARE with the downstairs.
The building is nearing 200 years old and we do our best to preserve it for the future. It is a conservation (not a renovation) so understand that you will be staying in a piece of history and not at the W hotel. There is a steep narrow staircase, and old bathrooms that were added to the building in the 1920's. A wonderful tiny balcony that was recently rebuilt for safety. We have done our best to preserve old paint finishes and wood patinas in the house. To make it comfortable we have added some modern touches like air conditioner units to the windows and updating the electric in the building.
We also live in the building and we are available as needed. Most of our guests never see us except during check-in, but, we are just a text away if you need anythingl Near Louis Armstrong Park, and within 2 blocks of the French Quarter and all of its attractions. There is net gear enabled tv with netflix, hulu plus, pandora and more and high speed wireless. Bourbon Street a 5 min walk away, with all the well-known jazz, blues, strip, gay and dance clubs all at your fingertips....... and the Treme (now famous from the HBO series) neighborhood to explore. We are only a few blocks from all the excitement but just out of the party zone so you can find peace and rest. Please note that this is city living - so there will be garbage trucks, then street sweepers, then the gardeners with leaf blowers in the morning - if you stayed out late at the clubs you may want to consider bringing some ear plugs with you to sleep in in the morning.
Please note that we only accept parties of 1 or 2 people - our place is not appropriate for groups. Please do not make a request if your party is more than 2 people. If you arrive with more than 2 people you will not be able to check-in.
If you are driving, expect the usual parking headaches of any big city. On a major bus line, just a few blocks from the famous street car lines, horse drawn carriages nearby and a taxi stand on the corner makes for easy getting around. There is also nearby and inexpensive bike rental.
We would be glad to welcome you - we are easy going, stress free folks in the Big Easy, you should be too. We would like to particularly encourage you to stay with us if you are thinking about a move to New Orleans - many of our guests have ended up becoming our neighbors. Come find out why this is the best place to live on earth! This is by far one of the best deals in town, location, location, location as they say - just steps from the best of New Orleans.
Interaction with Guests
Available if you need us - but otherwise you probably won't see us after check-in!
Other Things to Note
One or two people only - no groups! You will not be able to check-in if you have more than 2 people.
We aren't big on house rules - do unto others is the main one. In New Orleans we say "be nice or leave!"
It is a must must must to lock the gate when entering and leaving. No smoking in building or garden (smoking on the balcony is OK and we will provide an ash tray). No HEAVY drugs please ......and we are all grown ups but please exercise caution with who you bring back to your suite. It is important to understand that this is a busy mixed use urban neighborhood and offers all the great benefits and the ills of this. We wish you to have a safe and enjoyable visit to our village. Feel free to call on us anytime with any problem or situation. Thanks
The place was exactly what my spouse and I needed. Walkable to French Quarter, comfortable, private, and inexpensive. Super nice guy and helpful with local info.
The space was great, so nice and spacious and close to everything. Kyle was a great host at welcoming us and being flexible with our arrival time and departure time.
What a fantastic place with fantastic hosts. The location is terrific with several bars and eateries very close. We very much enjoyed the balcony, courtyard and friendly neighbors. The apartment itself was very well decorated and the bed was comfortable. It was great to have a place that was less expensive than a hotel with a great location and a lot more room.
Lyle's place was awesome. Its securely gated and opens up in the back into a shared patio area with the neighbors. They met us at our scheduled meeting time and showed us up to the place. The place was just as advertised, very clean, and had everything we needed. Its located in a great spot: just a short walk to Frenchman or the Quarter. We couldn't have picked a better spot. The hosts were very friendly and hospitable too!
Everything was great-- check in /check out was easy, super accommodating hosts, the space looked just like the (website hidden) keeps the apartment a good temperature and we basically walked everywhere (took the bus a couple times, there's a stop a few steps from the front door). There's a bit of street construction going on in the area, but we slept fine at night. All in all, a great place for a great price!
