This stunning monthly rental is exquisitely authentic & intact... Surround yourself with history and antiques in vieux Nouvelle-Orléans at our one-of-a-kind creole maisonette, which is the only surviving one in the French Quarter. The original structure was built in 1874 and is nearly original, this is how New Orleans is meant to be lived in...

The space
Our two story maisonette has a parlor, dining room, and kitchen on the main floor. Upstairs there is a large, principal bedroom (with a closet), a smaller secondary bedroom, and a full bath with a tub/shower. Everything inside and out is "of the period" (18th & 19th century) with a few modern exceptions. You will have television in the main bedroom and great wifi throughout. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the brick courtyard contains seating areas and a BBQ grill for your use. We are located on Bourbon Street, but you will be far enough away to avoid almost all of the noise as the maisonette is all the way to the rear of the property, which is fully walled and gated.

The History & Architecture

The Erard-Espy Maisonette is a two story gabled house built about 1874 for Joseph Nicolas Erard, a native of France, originally faced a front garden. A frame cottage to the front of the lot, added about 1887, now hides the earlier building from the street and provides tremendous privacy and quiet.
The maisonette, roofed with rare French flat terra cotta tiles, is a unique example of early nineteenth century Creole architecture which has undergone a sensitive renovation. The house is one room deep and two rooms wide. Casement doors open onto the balcony and to the courtyard below. Period mantles, doors, baseboards and chair rails show intricate detail and artistic merit.
The house has been furnished with French and Louisiana Creole pieces from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries while the lush patio, with large banana trees, contains a plantation sugar kettle and twentieth century Haitian tin decorative cutouts.

Where you’ll be

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

Often called the Crown Jewel of New Orleans, the French Quarter is one of NOLA's most historic neighborhoods. But you'll find plenty of new mixed in with the old. There’s a reimagined French Market, modern boutiques and artisan cocktails mix with beloved antique stores and old restaurants. (Antoine’s. Arnaud’s. Galatoire’s. Brennan’s – the world would be far less flavorful without you!)

Like the Creole aristocrats lining the galleries of the Historic New Orleans Collection, the French Quarter is a timeless portrait – especially come dusk when swallows glide above the fortunetellers on Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral’s butter-crème-colored walls reflect the fiery sunset. Ghost tours troop past mad Madame LaLaurie’s mansion while neon signs stutter to life on Bourbon Street where syrupy red Hurricanes, slosh in famed ‘go cups’– those plastic tumblers responsible for uncountable curbside parties. Night falls. Horse hooves clop, music throbs and gaslights flicker in a place full of long-told legends and those waiting to be born. Create one of your own.
