Born and raised in New Orleans, I reside in the second oldest neighborhood in the area, Algiers Point with my husband, Troy. We live here at the home and prefer to stay when we have guests. We have ample space for your pets, too. We have 3 dogs and prefer not to have to board them. If you would like the entire home, this can be negotiated. We will still clean, cook, and take care of your needs. Just let us know! There are additional cleaning fees for pets. Ask for details.
The home is walking distance via Mississippi River ferry from any place you would want to geaux (go phonetically). A creole cottage nestled among ancient oaks at the levee on the Mighty Mississippi is waiting for you. Two bedrooms, one bath, gourmet kitchen and a great deal of history are some of the things our place has to offer. There is also space for our queen sized air mattress and our sofa, too. My great grandmother's furnishings are here. The home is over 110 years old. It has all of the modern amenities you need; all the charm of an historic place.
Art and food are important to us. Our home is filled with original art from the region. Culture is important to us. This home is bursting at the seams with it. First things first, though; you need to get local. Here, we ask unusual questions when getting to know someone. The Initial List:
- Where'd you go to school?
- Who's your Mama?
- Are you Catholic?
- Can you make a roux?
It's an entirely different universe in the Crescent City. The school anyone asks about isn't on the university level. Locals want to know where you went to high school. Mama and church, well...you just don't question those questions. We still have parishes here instead of counties. A roux is equal parts of fat and flour; our fnf to your bnb. It is used to thicken sauces and such. But please, don't call it sauce here. Even if it's red, it's gravy. I know, foodies everywhere are aghast. I'm part Sicilian. I feel your pain. It won't change.
Our area is completely diverse. Within walking distance, there are churches, galleries, the Old Point Bar features live music, Vine & Dine, the Dry Dock Cafe' and more. We have a way of doing things (or not doing them) here. Please do visit Bourbon Street. Please venture out to our other festive streets, too. Head to Frenchman Street for a local, chill vibe. Visit Magazine Street's fabulous boutiques, quirky hangout spots and high end art galleries. Don't forget this (email hidden) where families are raised. There is something for everyone here.
We speak in Yat. Imnatryandaserchfadat. Translation: I'm going to try and search for that. It's our own vernacular. Run on sentences and those ending in prepositions are the norm. We live by very different seasons here (brown shrimp, Mardi Gras, crawfish, Jazz Fest, white shrimp). If traveling abroad I were asked "where you from?" (and, we would say it that way), the US wouldn't even come to mind. Our irreverence is only surpassed by our passion. We are New Orleans. New Orleans is what we are.
We are ready to welcome you to a unique experience...NOLA like a local!!!
