Treme Apartment--4 Blocks from FQ

Apartment - Entire home/apt · St Philip St, New Orleans, LA 70116, United States

The Space

Enjoy your stay in New Orleans in the historic Faubourg Treme neighborhood in a renovated 1 bedroom/1bathroom unit complete with fully equipped kitchen (stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator), washer/dryer access, full sized bed, cable, and internet. The sofa is also converts to a pull out bed for additional guests. The bathroom has both a shower and a bathtub however we do not provide toiletries or a hairdryer.

The unit 1 of 4 apartments in a renovated building originally built in 1832. The neighborhood itself is a very eclectic mix which includes everything from young families, singles, young couples, and families who have been in the neighborhood since the start of it's existence. The area is rich in history, culture, and tradition. It is not odd to see a second line parade during your stay or to hear the sounds of a brass band in the distance. The Candlelight Lounge is located just a block away and is home to many brass band staples in New Orleans including The Treme Brass band who plays every Wednesday night without fail. Tenants in the building are respectful but be aware the the building definitely (email hidden)d in" feel. There are times when you can hear the other tenants walking about or talking or playing music. Bottom line is that the house is old but that's what makes your stay even that much more authentic. Most of the homes here are set up this way and what seems normal to us may be a little out of the ordinary to anyone visiting!

I am a burlesque performer and the unit is furnished as such with historical photos from burlesque performers of the past as well as photos from shows that I have done and various show posters. There are books in the unit as well that range from erotic photography to classic pinup to poetry to biographies.

You are walking distance from the French Quarter and popular areas such as Frenchmen Street, the French Market, The Faubourg Marigny, The Riverwalk, Decatur Street, Bourbon Street, Royal Street, and Armstrong Park to name a few. Just a few blocks away (walking distance), there are 2 museums that you must visit: The Backstreet Cultural Museum and The New Orleans African American Museum. Treme Coffeehouse is located on the corner and offers great coffee, sandwiches, and free internet. One of the BEST restaurants in the city is just up the street and is called MeauxBar. You MUST eat there before leaving! Also Lil' Dizzy's is a few blocks away on Esplanade and is must do for authentic southern cooking and some of the best fried chicken you've ever eaten.

We recommend cabbing to anywhere that is not in walking distance. Public transportation is available nearby but is a bit cumbersome and it's well worth the extra money to experience a Nola cabbie! Pedicabs are also EVERYWHERE and they are very happy to have your business. The streetcar is about a 20 minute walk away on Canal Street is definitely a must on your to-do list during your visit.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great time in the Treme apartment, it's a great location and very comfortable though sparsely equipped, but the whole point of its location is to spend as much time in New Orleans as possible. The noise was not a factor for us, we just kept similar hours to the neibours.

  • Great location, cozy place, and Leah was really sweet about letting me check out later than I had planned. Would definitely recommend.

    March 2014
  • Everything went super smooth with Leah. Contacting and booking was easy and the flat just what we wanted. Location is perfect - in the Tremé, just a short walk to the French quarter. Flat was wonderful, warm and stylish. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks again!

  • Leah was very professional having everything we needed set up in the apartment and got us in right on time. The place is very comfortable, clean and within walking distance to many places. I definitely recommend staying here for your trip!

  • Leah’s is a very good host in terms of fast responding and answers everything, her place is very close to French Quarter, walking distance to nearly every place you want to go, which is a big convenient for us.
    The place is just like the picture taken, and same as everyone else, the noise due to the thin ceiling might be a problem is you are noise-sensitive.
    Cleanness wasn’t that well in the bathroom, but it’s acceptable for couple nights stay.

  • As others said before the walls are extremely thin. There were times when I swore the other tenants were walking inside our apartment. Otherwise, the place was very clean and and conformable. It was close enough to the French Quarter that one could walk, but I would suggest taking a cab back if it is dark out. There is a great cafe right on the corner that I would suggest, they have great breakfast and lunch. Overall, nice apartment and I would come back if I was in the area again.

  • Nice stay, conveniently located (10 min walk from French Quarter), clean and cheaper than most hotel in New-Orleans.

    Bon séjour, bien situé (10 min à pied du quartier français), propre et moins cher que la plupart des hôtels de la Nouvelle-Orléans.

    December 2013
  • Very Enjoyable stay. Thin ceiling so you can hear everything especially footfalls. Only real issue is that the thermostat is in the hall and the heat vent is in the bedroom, so temperature control was a bit of a pain on the last night when it was really cold.

  • Leah’s apartment was great in terms of proximity to the New Orleans Arena, the French Quarter, and other nearby attractions. We drove and street parking was right in front of her building. Literally everywhere we wanted to go was a 6 - 15 minute drive. Her place looked exactly like the pictures and was clean, tidy, and ready for guests. I would agree on the noise factor in the other reviews – the apartment has very thin walls so be prepared for your next door neighbor's and outside conversation. But if you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay in close proximity to a lot – Leah’s is the place to go! We enjoyed this authentic New Orleans experience.

    November 2013
  • We really enjoyed Leah's apartment. It is in a funky area but we like that. The people in the area are very friendly. We walked everywhere. The location is great as it is an easy walk to all the major areas in the city.

    The apartment was clean and very functional. Loved the burlesque theme. We enjoyed that.
