My home is a one bedroom shotgun on the edge of the Bayou St. John Neighborhood.
For you Jazz Festers, it's an easy 20 minute walk to Jazz Fest (through Bayou St. John and across Esplanade).
It's on Lafitte between the bayou and Broad (walking distance to the bayou, City Park, Parkway Bakery, Pal's and Bayou Beer Garden! Less than a mile Canseco's Grocery & Fair Grinds Coffee Shop, less than a mile to Rouse's Market, a major grocery store).
The Canal Streetcar line is about 3 blocks away, it's an easy ride in and out of the quarter.
It was remodeled last year, so is in immaculate shape! The bedroom has a queen size bed. The kitchen has all the basics fridge & stove (of course) pots, pans, utensils, blender/food processor.
Living room has a desk, recliner and extra long couch.
I do NOT have TV, internet, or a washer/dryer. There's a laundromat near the grocery stores.
This space would be ideal for a couple, small fam, or pack of friends who are cool with the couch/air mattress set up. 6 people could squeeze in, but it would definitely be tight with all the air mattresses, but really, you're in New Orleans! You won't be spending much time at the house.
This was my first experience with Airbnb and Melanie and her house exceeded expectations. Melanie was always very quick to respond, extremely kind and helpful and very accommodating. She left us a great note and thoughtful supplies (beads, solo cups, koozies.)
We rented her house for VodooFest and it worked out perfect. We literally stepped outside and followed the music for a reasonable walk to City Park. It was also close to other bars and a trolley stop. Her house was as advertised - we only ended up having two of us spend the weekend (my other friends are lame) but it could easily fit 4.
From the start Melanie was very easy to communicate with and had no problem handling my very early check in.
Front door was decorated with beads and Mardi Gras swag...made me smile when I walked up. Melanie was super nice and made sure I knew everything I needed to know...great advice and good local knowledge.
House was in great shape and very clean. I used the street car a few blocks away to get downtown everyday....very convenient. Best of all...Melanie had a big jar of quarters that came in handy when I needed change for the streetcar!
Four of us stayed at Melanie's place to watch our 49ers play in the Super Bowl against the ravens and could not have been happier with Melanie and the place.
Melanie was an absolutely incredible host. She stocked some groceries for us and even took us shopping when we arrived. She decked the place out with beads for Carnival and even wrapped the front door mat in a Baltimore Ravens jersey! She left us 6 full pages of hand-written notes of things to do, how to catch cabs and public transit, where to eat, etc.
The house is small (Only 3 rooms total), but it was not smaller than advertised and was comfortably sized after using the air mattresses Melanie provided.
The house is on a quiet street and the neighbors were very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
Great home, all as described. The way Melanie delivered the place exceeded our expectations. Many thanks.
