Interaction with Guests
I prefer very little interaction with guests, but I am available if needed.
There is a bus that runs to the edge of the French Quarter, but NOLA does not have good public transport.
I'm flexible with check in and out times, unless I have guests leaving and coming in on same day. In that case, please check out by 11am and check in after 3 pm. I will let you know if that is the case.
No smoking in the house, I will know because I can smell it in my house! You are more than welcome to smoke outside. I WAS a smoker and have no problem with it, I just cannot have the rental smelling like smoke. Bad for business!
We ask you to please respect the parking spaces on this residential street. Street parking is available usually right next to house. Please do not park in front of our neighbor's houses. They can get fussy about that. The space in front of the house is mine.
The apartment was just as expected. It's cute and cozy. The neighborhood has interesting hangout spots and I utilized them a bunch. It is well located for traveling to all the interesting places in New Orleans in a short time by car. I also utilized public transit on the weekends. Buses are very close and streetcar on Canal Street is not too far if you enjoy a walk.
Aimee was warm and welcoming and responded to questions and concerns quickly and satisfactorily.
The Happy Chic Flat is as beautiful as it appears in the photos and it is in my favorite neighborhood in New Orleans, Faubourg St. John, a quiet neighborhood with beautiful houses, parks and gardens and The Bayou St. John. You're close to all the wonderful little restaurants at Ponce de Leon and Esplanade, Lola's, Degas, Santa Fe, Liuzza's and more. The Bayou is at the end of Ursulines and City Park is at the end of the Bayou. Lot's of wonderful walking around in the neighborhood. Everything else in the city is nearby by car or bike. The apartment itself is well appointed. The neighbors are quiet. It's a great place to stay. I stayed for a month while looking for a longer term rental. No troubles what-so-ever with Aimee. Perfect host. Everything was in order when I arrived. The space has plenty of room for you and your things, which I really appreciated.
Great place. It's really as cute and homey as the pictures make it appear. Sadly, I never met Aimee, but her partner was very welcoming and spent a bunch of time fixing the toilet right away on a saturday afternoon when it broke.
I couldn't ask for a nicer place while I was in town.
Great place. Well furnished. Perfect for an extended stay. Had everything I needed.
Had a wonderful time Aaimees flat was comfortable and cosy accessible to transport and plenty of information left for us so we could find our way around we would recommend this accommodation without hesitation.
Aimee was great. While we didn't see her during our stay she was extremely easy to communicate with. The studio was everything that you see in the pictures and more. Not only this, but the neighborhood was nice as well. Never did I feel weird going out to my car, even at night. As someone that grew up right outside of New Orleans, many neighborhoods can be sketchy, and hers was nice and quiet. Two houses down there was a corner store that had extremely nice people as well.
Overall an amazing experience. Would definitely go back.
Absolutely perfect! Happy Chic Flat is a great way to stay in a sweet neighborhood and be minutes away from great food, music, arts and the friendliest people in all my travels. The apartment is private, clean, cozy and quiet.
It's true, just steps from many neighborhood perks - coffee shops, restaurants, wine shop, grocery stores, even the NOMA and beautiful City Park (amusements, new mini golf, music events, etc).
Heading into French Quarter and beyond was easy. One cab ride from FQ was only $8.
I recommend a stay at Happy Chic Flat.

Hi, I'm Aimee! I am a long time New Orleans resident (15 yrs ), originally from California. I have lived in NYC and New Mexico as well, but New Orleans is my home. I live upstairs with my boyfriend in this beautiful house. I love to travel and I have had really great airbnb experiences, most recently 15 days in Barcelona. We both work in the film industry here. If you decide to stay at the Happy Chic Flat, you will have complete privacy to enjoy your home away from home! I am of course available if you have any questions or problem. We both work very long hours, so there are times we are rarely home. I've had guests for a 2 week stay and I only saw them twice!
I am an easy going host, hoping to provide a lovely, stress free home base for people to enjoy and experience New Orleans charm and diversity.
Thank you for stopping by my listing!
