Come stay with us in a real New Orleans neighborhood and live like a local! The house is a "shotgun double" which is located in the safe, historic and artsy neighborhood only 1.5 miles from the French Quarter known as "Bywater." We are mere steps from the new Crescent Park River Walk that stretches from Mazant street to the edge of the French Quarter. A real scenic delight!
Be our guests in our charming mid-century home!
You get a fully furnished side of our double shotgun house. There is also a huge plant covered front porch with a porch swing and bistro table to people watch. Inside is 800 square foot with two bedrooms with queen beds, comforters, pillows, and linens. This is a shotgun house, for those that aren't familiar, one room leads to another as you go to the rear of the house, with the rear bedroom being totally private. The house comes completely furnished with kitchenware, coffee-maker, coffee and tea, microwave, towels, shampoo/conditioner/bath soap, wi-fi, a record player with a light assortment of records, 2 alarm clocks with I-pod/mp3 docks, and a fold-out full sized futon.
You will have access to the front porch, the house and the back porch.
If you need to do laundry, just let us know. We have a washer and dryer located in a small shed in our backyard.
We now have bicycles available! 2 women's cruisers and 2 men's cruisers. We charge a small $10 maintenance fee per bike for your entire stay. This just helps to offset the costs of tires, tubes and tune-ups for the bikes. Let us know if you would like to use them and we'll have them ready for you when you arrive.
Interaction with guests
We live right next door and both work in the neighborhood, so we're always around to help and can give you many more suggestions, both locally and tourist oriented. Please don't hesitate to shoot us a text with any questions or concerns you may have.
Other things to note
If you are expecting 5 star hotel accommodations this will not be the place for you. Our place is clean, comfortable, and in a great area. We are both in the hospitality industry and really work hard to try and make our guests comfy but this rental is still and old house in a historic neighborhood.
Sorry but we do not book guests more than 5 months in advance.
During Mardi Gras, and Jazz Fest we require a 4 night minimum stay. We do not split these weekends.
