The brick building opens up to the courtyard. This 2nd floor balcony room sleeps 2 on a Queen size bed and has a private ground floor bathroom. Solid cypress shutters offer a quiet retreat after a day of exploring or working. Our location is unique in the city and is not a quiet residential street by day. Nights and weekends however are a peaceful change from commerce serving the Port of New Orleans. Our neighbor, a wedding venue, has music till midnight on weekends.

The space
This second story balcony room is furnished with a four posted Scandinavian designed Queen size bed. The rooms' partition wall is made with antique solid Cypress doors. Full of morning light, the room has 2 windows and 2 french doors. Handmade curtains offer privacy. If you want to sleep in and keep the room dark, the original 1834 solid cypress shutters can provide that. The room has its own stocked refrigerator, toaster and electric kettle. It's important for some guests to know that the newly renovated bathroom, for our Balcony room, is reached by the outside stairs. By all accounts, the room is worth the experience!

Guest access
Guests have access to the shared courtyard, the newly renovated bathroom and shower Access to the Courtyard and guest rooms is by way of the Common Alley from Race Street. The locked gate in our passage way to the Common Alley provides us and our guests a peace of mind and privacy.

Other things to note
We share this historic end of our block with our neighbor and sister building at 510 Race St. The building and its surrounding property are called Race & Religious named after the streets. It is a popular wedding venue that does book some lively celebrations on most weekend nights. 11pm is the lawful curtain call for live and recorded music. If you plan to go to bed early on the weekends, we may not be a good fit.

Location

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

This has been our home since 1981, the 3 story main building faces Tchoupitoulas Street and the river. The 2 story out building is nestled in the heart of our historic municipal square #80. We are bounded by Race, Religious, Orange and Tchoupitoulas streets. The collection of buildings that remain at our down river end of the block were all built by Laurent Millaudon, a French sugar planter and investor. The buildings were investment rental property in the early 1830s. Today little remains of our old neighborhood but now the visitor has an urban landscape and a river vista unparalleled in the city. We are not situated on a sleepy corner in the Crescent City. During business hours Monday through Friday you can hear the vitality of the Mississippi with train whistles, ships horns and many trucks coming and going to our busy port. After hours and on weekends you may be surprised at the calm, serenaded by song birds and Monk Parrots. Music too, jazz bands, entertaining guests next door at Race & Religious, a wedding venue. We are uniquely located for the visitor who is here for work or play. Some reference points from 1503 Tchoupitoulas: 2 blocks down river to the Morial Convention Center. 4 blocks to the Second Line Studio, a full service motion picture sound stage. We are minutes away by car from the Central Business District, Federal courthouse and the vibrant Arts and Museum District. Walking from 1503 its always recommended that you walk up Race St to Magazine or Camp St if you want to walk to Canal Street and the French Quarter. Its about a 25 minute walk to the FQ. For any immediate necessities beyond what we offer in your room we have a Super Walmart 4 blocks up Religious St. on the river.

Nancy and Neil met in New Orleans back in the late 70s. In 1981 they were looking for a building and came across this historic property. At the time, 1503 stood surrounded by buildings mostly warehouses on a quiet forgotten corner of the working waterfront. They've been caring for this place ever since. They raised their two children here and rode out many Hurricanes, including Katrina. Neil is a commercial photographer working primarily with architects, designers, planners, and developers. He's dedicated to historic preservation and thoughtful adaptive reuse of historic buildings. Nancy is an artist and designer and accomplished seamstress. Her hand bags and accessories have been a feature at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for the past 10 years. She is equally passionate and talented about good food, music and the care and upkeep of our home. They joined the AirBnB team in 2015.
