The Space

Why spend your time in New Orleans in a hotel room when you can live with the locals! Located in the heart of the French Quarter, this charming, dream unit is small yet great, private studio. The unit's doors open directly onto a private courtyard, which is shared by another unit and the home. The unit's Queen bed, full private bathroom with shower and small kitchenette offer all you need for your stay.

Attached to a magnificent home built circa 1844, this lovely studio is located on Orleans Avenue, between Burgundy and N. Rampart Streets in a historic and quaint area of residential homes. Safe, secure with a private gated entrance, our guest quarters are just a short walk to local restaurants, bars, open markets, public transportation (buses and street cars), shopping, museums and much more.

We take a great deal of pride in our rental. Owning the property and living nearby offers us the opportunity to get to know our clients and to be on hand to address any questions or concerns that may arise.

Flat screen TV, cable, dvd, free wifi, on-street parking pass and an inside scoop on what's going on in New Orleans!

Accommodating up to two guests, our studio has dual A/C and heating window unit for your comfort. The bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed, small sitting area, and connects to the bathroom. Our full bathroom has been recently renovated, standing shower only.

The unit is comfortably furnished with a mix of antiques and artwork as well as modern comforts to make sure your stay is perfect. We provide everything from clean linens and towels to a kitchenette with coffee maker, small refrigerator, microwave, and furnished courtyard. We provide you with coffee, cream, tea, plus any special requests - please let us know what you need!

Sit and relax in the courtyard and listen to the St. Louis Cathedral chimes, the clip clop of the horse-drawn carriages, the distant sound of the Steamship Natchez's. Or join us in the neighborhood for an evening cocktail and meet your neighbors. Up and about early - perhaps a short walk to the French Market for beignets and cafe au lait - the possibilities are as endless as New Orleans!

Feel free to contact us with any questions and thanks for considering our studio! We also have a one bedroom just upstairs from the studio that accommodates up to four guests if you're looking for a little more space.

  • We were fortunate enough to meet both Kyo and McKenzie, who were both wonderful and very friendly. Their excellent recommendations came in handy during our stay. The place is lovely, quiet and really well located. We loved our stay and hope to come back soon!

  • Our host met us at the front gate with a parking pass and keys. She is very polite and very helpful. She kept in contact with us via text messages to make sure everything was going smoothly.

    The studio is very clean and comfy. The cat's in the courtyard were loving and definitely well fed.

    This was the perfect location for our nice visit to New Orleans. Everything we wanted to see was walking distance.

    Parking was sometimes an issue, but only because we were visiting during July 4th.

    We are thankful for this host family. They were so nice to my mother and I.

  • Our stay here really made our trip wonderful. We felt at home, apart of New Orleans instead of a tourist. Our host was super friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was very clean and the use of the courtyard was fabulous. I would recommend staying here to everyone, there is really no better way to go.

  • Great location just a couple of blocks from the Quarter's action, but on a quiet street. Kyo was super helpful and a great resource.

  • Amazing location in the French Quarter. Kyo was very easy to get in touch with and gave us some good options in the area for food, bars, etc. We always felt very secure when we were walking to and from and in the apartment. Perfect sized for a few days and really puts you right in the heart of things!! Would stay here again!

  • This apartment was the cutest and nicest apartment we have stayed in during our travels. It was extremely clean, extremely secure and had all the essentials. Kyo was an amazing host who gave us some great tips about where to eat and drink. I highly recommend this apartment to any couples or friends travelling. It comfortable fit 2 people and the courtyard was just perfect for a casual drink and dinner. The friendly cat is divine too - super cuddly and great if you are missing your pets like us.

  • My wife and I had a great experience here. It is in a quieter part of the French Quarter but still close enough to walk to most anything. Kyo was great and very helpful. We will stay here again when in New Orleans.

  • French Quarter Retreat was a terrific place to stay. Centrally located within the French Quarter but in a quiet courtyard. Accommodation was ideal for our needs. Comfortable bed and good hot shower.
    Kyo was an efficient and welcoming host. There were good notes about the area and recommendations for restaurants etc. which turned out to be spot on. The weather was pretty wet while we were there so we were delighted to find poncho and umbrella in the wardrobe. Would certainly stay there again and would recommend to friends.

  • This place is perfection. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The courtyard is gorgeous, inviting, and has so much character. The studio was just what we needed for our short trip. It was clean, cute, and comfortable. Kyo was helpful, friendly, available, and provided us with so much useful information. I was sick the last day and she check in on me to see if I needed anything. You can't get that kind of hospitality anywhere else. The neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe with the locked gate and enclosed courtyard. AND there were several furry friends that helped make us feel even more at home. We would highly recommend it to any of our friends or family visiting New Orleans. It really made our trip!
