The Burgundy Bend is located in the Marigny Triangle, just one block from the French Quarter and a stone's throw from Frenchmen Street. Close to Buffa's, The Spotted Cat, Three Muses, Cosimo's, Port-of-Call, Croissant D'or and Wasabi. Short walk from French Quarter and Bywater art galleries as well as fantastic breakfast places such as Cake Cafe and Satsuma's. Perfect location for FQ Fest, Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras and other holiday festivities. This neighborhood offers culture, charm, and fun.
The private nonsmoking room is on the 2nd floor and comes with a front porch overlooking the street into the FQ. Enter into the house and you've entered into your room. Your room is part of a New Orleans Shotgun style house. Each room is connected to the next room, one behind the other.
Your room features a full-size bed, sofa, hardwood floors, ceiling fan, a/c unit/heater, french doors with blinds for privacy, wireless internet, and lots of charm. There are some New Orleans books, magazines, novels, CDs, and maps on the shelves for you to enjoy during your stay as well.
The room is ideal for 1 person or a couple, but if you are in a party of 2 or 3 friends, the full size bed and sofa come in handy.
The rest of the house is shared with me, with the 2nd room being the living room w/ cable tv and the 3rd room is the bathroom with a small hallway. The 4th room is my bedroom and then the 5th is the kitchen with the balcony.
In order to get to the kitchen, you will have to go thru my bedroom. I don't mind at all. My door is always open, early morning or late at night, I don't mind my guests walking thru at any time. I will use the back door to enter/exit the apartment if needed, so I won't disturb you.
You are welcome to use the fridge to store food and/or stove to cook. I have assorted teas, coffee, and filtered water for you to enjoy on the balcony if you would like. The balcony is more private and quiet and offers a nice view overlooking rooftops, courtyards, and greenery. Great to enjoy an early morning or a late evening. All of the silverware, glasses, cups, plates, bowls are stored together in one cabinet in the kitchen, easily to locate.
This Bed/Bath comes with fresh, clean towels & wash cloths and sheets & bedding & blanket. It also has a luggage rack, a small hanging area, and a couple of empty shelfs to store your things. In the bathroom, there is liquid soap, shampoo & conditioner, and lotion available. And in the kitchen, there is a washer/dryer for your convenience, if needed.
If you have a car, there is street parking available. I would give you a guest pass so you are able to park on the street for free in this area. Once here, most of my guests travel by foot because of the great location. However there is a bus stop around the corner and I also have a bike and bike lock, if you would like to experience the city that way. Replacement cost is $100 if stolen/damaged.
I do have a couple of indoor cats, but they mainly stay at the back end of the house. They shouldn't get in your way. But please keep the out doors closed at all times. (In some of the reviews, the guests mention that i have 3 lovely cats, however, Stinky went to Kitty Heaven on November 30, 2013, so there are only 2 cats.)
You'll love the stay here and you'll fall in love with New Orleans as I have.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Awesome location! Cute place; it felt like home. Debbie was really nice and helpful, too!
We very much enjoyed our stay. Debbie is an excellent host and very thoughtful and helpful. The location is great, on a quiet street but well within walking distance of the french quarter attractions.
Loved the location of Debbie's house! We were able to park our car all weekend, and walk or take the street car to get around!
Debbie is very personable and comfortable to be around. She gave us awesome tips of local places to eat and catch live music.
I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to meet Debbie and stay at her house. As everyone mentioned, the location is ideal. We have mutual interests, so it was great talking to her, and I hope we can keep in touch. The house is really comfortable and cheerful, and I felt like a welcome guest. The cats stick to themselves, so you don't need to worry about them jumping on you or getting into your stuff if you're not a cat person. I wish it were a bit warmer so I could have hung out on the porch to watch the world go by, but there's so much to do within walking distance that you won't have time to rest.
Debbie's place was within walking distance to most major attractions and transit lines and she was very helpful in anything we needed. She gave us great recommendations on where to go and had maps and information on the different areas as well.
Thanks Debbie for a great few hours .... sorry the train was late and we could not see more of your lovely town but it was so good of you to stay up for us and then sort us out again in the early morning. Many thanks it was great to meet you - Merry Christmas!
Absolutely great place to stay. Debbie is a fantastic host, was traveling alone so Debbie took me in and showed me real New Orleans! One fantastic city! Home and cats! When retuning to New Orleans Debbie's place will be the first look up! Thanks so much for being such a great host!
Debbie is a very cool lady and the parts of her place that you will use are kept very clean and orderly. She has three adorable cats, though the oldest guy is very frail:-( Fraidy, Chloe and Stinky are adorable and quiet and not problem and do not enter your space. the house is in a perfect location, a quiet bend in Burgundy, near Buffa's and many other cool Marigny and Bywater boites. I had a great stay and recommend her to you without reservation. The price is totally right and there is no chi-chi bullsh*t to contend with. Enjoy !
Thanks to Debbie for the days spent in her nice house.
The place is very well located close to the French Quarter by walk.
Debbie was a nice host and gave to me a lot of useful advices to visit New Orleans.
Location, location. location! Debbie's apartment is a block away from the french quarter, but was quiet and felt very safe. I was there several days, parked my car out front and never got in again until I left. The room is very comfortable and has plenty of room for one or two guest, it opens up to a living room and then a short hall to the bathroom. The bathroom is very clean and has a large old tub with a shower.
Debbie very is a great host! She is very friendly,helpful and told me about the two best restaurants I ate at in New Orleans. It's an easy walk all thought the french quarter and the central business district. I went to the World War II museum complex which is actually three building and is amazing.
If I return to NOLA again, I will staying being staying in Debbie's friendly little room.
