The Space

This newly renovated mother-in-law suite is the back quarter of our 130 year old home. We are located in the coolest part of uptown New Orleans, just a stone's throw from the city's greatest restaurants, music venues, bars, art galleries, shops, bookstore, coffee shops, etc. If you feel like staying in, relax on our back deck under the shade of the palm tree and listen to the sounds of tree frogs in our neighbor's lemon trees. We even have a gas grill, if you like to cook out. We are also one block from from the St. Charles streetcar line, that brings you right to downtown/French Quarter.
The apartment itself has a comfy double bed and a twin sized air mattress with bedding is available for a friend or child. The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you need. The bathroom has a claw foot tub, original to the house. Internet and laundry facilities also available. We can show you around and answer any questions you have about the city. We look forward to hearing from you!

  • Bonny and Paul were very responsive to my questions and helpful, though I found I didn't need help with anything much while I was there - the apartment had everything I needed for my stay, and I was there for over a month. I did sometimes cook in the kitchen and I appreciated the gas hob, as well as that there were so many ice trays! That I could wash my clothes in the huge washing machine and dry them too was really handy.

    The location was great, situated near the lovely Live Oak Cafe for brunch and Zotz around the corner for a late night caffeinated beverage. There are also some fantastic restaurants within walking distance - I recommend Cowbell, which does burgers, tacos and cocktails, at very the end of the street by the railway line. We could also catch the streetcar from the other end of Oak Street and that way get downtown and to the French Quarter. The neighborhood feels very safe and the residents seem all very friendly. We hired bikes for a few days, and that was a great, cheap way to get to the places that it was a bit too hot to walk to: Magazine Street and a fun stretch of Freret Street, for example.

  • Had such an amazing stay here. The apartment was so cute and cozy, very comfortable as well. In a great neighbourhood an easy half hour tram ride from the center of town. A lovely ride through the garden district is a great way to start and end our day! Bonnie and Paul were both lovely too, made it so easy to stay a little longer and the welcome pack that they've put together is incredibly helpful!

  • Our stay was awesome! Cozy little suite hidden just steps away from great eats. Cool and eclectic area as well. Be sure to check out their guide/map they've taken the time make. Very beneficial! We'll be back!

  • Bonnie and Paul were responsive and easy to work with. This was my first Airbnb experience, so I didn't know what to expect. No complaints!

  • My bf and I stayed in early April. Bonny & Paul were both out of town but Bonny answered all of my questions prior to arrival promptly. Their place is EXACTLY as pictured - so adorable and just the amenities you need! The location is just phenomenal - super cute neighborhood and their place is RIGHT off the main street, but it's perfectly quiet! And close to transportation.

    Basically just chiming in to concur with the previous reviews!

  • My husband and I just got back from our stay in New Orleans at the Oak Street Hangout. The apartment had everything you could need - space heater for the cooler mornings, a fully equiped kitchen and a folder of information of things to do and places to eat nearby. The place is in a great neighborhood with plenty of cafes, restaurants, shopes and bars in very short walking distance. The street car was short walk away, but will say that to get to the French Quarter by street car it does take about 40 min on a busy day with the contstruction going on. So you have to decide to take the $3 slow round trip, or the $40-50 quicker roundtrip cab ride.

  • Been back for 10 days, and we miss NOLA! Had a wonderful visit, with the accommodations at Oak Street Hangout just perfect for us. Clean when we arrived, and just as described. Bonny left a complete, detailed "welcome package," which was a big help. She and Paul were traveling when we were there, which meant we didn't disturb their family life when we borrowed the morning sunshine on their front porch. Nice to have the kitchen area for breakfast cereal/tea/snacks, but never did any real cooking. (Why do that in New Orleans, when there's so much great food made by other people?!) Z'otz coffee shop around the corner was our morning wake-up call. Oak Street Cafe directly across the street is good. Breads Bakery is a short walk for yummy granola, sandwiches, and gluten-free choices. Buncha other places, too. Neighborhood is funky and friendly. Can walk to the river levee's bike/walk path. Streetcar stop is just a block away; it's the St. Charles line through the Garden District and all the way to the Quarter. We had a car two nights, and parking was easy on Dublin Street. Oak Street Hangout is a great find!

  • Bonnie was very friendly and helpful. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at their place. It is a very very convenient location. They are by many nice bars, restaurants, cafes, and boutiques. The street car is about a block away and cabs are really easy to get in the area as well. I recommend dining at Jacqes Imo's which is a short walk on Oak Street and also the sushi place nearby as well called Chiba. We got to know the owner there and he was very nice. Overall we had a great stay!

  • We had a great stay at Bonny and Paul's house. It was a nice sized place for my wife and I. It had a nice kitchen, equipped with everything you need to cook. But we didn't use it because we ate out at the local cafes and restaurants. It was very close (across the street) to the Oak Street Cafe where they have free wifi and great breakfasts and JAZZ MUSIC! As well it's a block from the street car that can take you all the way to downtown. We had privacy and the place was quiet. So all in all a great time. Thanks Bonny and Paul!

  • Location, location, location!

    This hide-a-way is round the corner from Oak Street off Carrollton and if your really want to see New Orleans just stay in the neighborhood. Oak St. store facades are frozen in time, but are now filled with cafes, coffee shops, vintage stores, and great restaurants.

    The apartment is quaint and in the rear, secure, and very quiet. It is very NOLA as the back porch and patios bring you back in time.

    Bonnie is quick with a welcoming smile and Paul is quick with a needed jump to get your car back up and running. (Thanks!) They are a new family blessed with an amazing daughter. Next time we'll offer babysitting and give them the break. :)

Paul is in the music industry. I'm in the airline industry, but currently out on a maternity leave with our first child. We are passionate about our city and love for others to discover the many charms of New Orleans. We hope to host you soon!
