Named after one of New Orleans most famous streetcar lines, The Desire Suite has everything you need to live in the Big Easy. A private entrance at the front of the house opens into the bedroom with a King size bed. The room is equipped with a 48" HD TV, a wardrobe closet, dresser, and a stunning 15 foot ceiling. A small sitting room sits quietly off of the bedroom with a reading chair, a wooden desk, and a daybed that can sleep a third person. There is a private en suite bathroom.

The space
Welcome to my double shotgun house, built around 1842. Please make sure that guest count is correct. Due to Covid, only registered guest are permitted on property. It is strictly monitored and enforced. I have 5 guest suites, each completely self contained with a bathroom, shower, CBTL coffee pod machine, 48" HD TV, and a private entry door directly to the outside. Some of the suites have a door between them that allows for larger groups to connect rooms. There is a common area in the back yard with a hot tub, lounge chairs, and plenty of shade. The house is in the Marigny Triangle, less than a 5 blocks to the French Quarter and only 3 blocks to the lively restaurants and live music on Frenchman Street.


Please note that although I have a Bed&breakfast license, I don't serve breakfast. However, your room is supplied with coffee, and we are just a few minutes walk from some great places to eat!

Guest access
Guests will be provided with access to the back patio and a code to a private outside door to your room.

Other things to note
My house is on Elysian Fields Avenue in the Faubourg Marigny, just blocks from the Mississippi river and Frenchman Street. The house is not without quirks (like a few cracks in the plaster walls and doors that sometimes require a little more effort to pull shut!), but like all acts of love, I am constantly working on making my home as good as it can be.

The Faubourg Marigny can be overlooked by those who think of New Orleans only as "The French Quarter". With an identiy all it's own, the Marigny has a charm that is just as strong with independent cafe's, restaurants, artists studios, and live music. You'll feel like a local in no time.

Welcome to my home in New Orleans. I've named my place the Blue60 Guest House, a term more commonly known as the "Blue Hour". It's the time of day after the sun has set and before the sky turns black. As a photographer, It's my favorite time of the day to take pictures. My house is set up so that each guest room is like a small apartment. There is a shared outdoor patio with a hot tub, and each room has a private outdoor entrance, a kithenette and private bathroom. My goal is to create a space for travelers who are seeking an "off the tour bus" experience, and maybe who want to take a photo or two! -Joshua

During your stay
I live in the back of the house and am often home editing photographs in my office. I leave it up to guests how much interaction they would like to have, but am happy to assist with all aspects of planning their trip.
