About this listing
American and International guests welcome. I enjoy very much meeting guests from other countries and cultures. Also, our military is very appreciated. (Federal City is only 1.8 miles from my home). I hope every guest truly enjoys the experience of being in New Orleans and will enjoy the southern charm and hospitality of the South.
Very nice spacious bedrooms airy and open condominium beautifully landscaped gated community with protected parking. I treat everyone who stays with me as a special person because you are. I want you to feel welcome in my home and have a nice time while you are in New Orleans .I will be glad to assist with your planned agenda in order to make your stay a remarkable one. Meeting new people and
hosting is my favorite pastime. I am on a cell phone 24/7 so
a guest would be able to reach me in case they need assistance or have an emergency. I do live here but I greatly respect other people's privacy and personal space. I spoil my guests and enjoy doing so. Get used to being pampered.! There is a Futon in the room also that serves as a sofa or an extra bed for a third guest or children if needed.
One morning I was awakened by a vibrantly red cardinal pecking at my window. There is a bird sanctuary very close by. Also enjoy a continental breakfast with fresh coffee, rolls, fruit and orange juice each morning. Harrahs casino, Aquarium of the Americas,, plantation tours, swamp tours, voodoo tours, and the fabulous French Quarter are 6-8 minutes away by car.in downtown New Orleans. Great for Mardi Gras and any other festive occasions. Boomtown casino and a swamp tour are also near my condominium. Swimming pool, fireplaces, friendly atmosphere, and gracious host. There is also WIFI and cable tv. Children and pets are welcome. Beautiful colored lights at the doorway illuminate
your pathway at night
There are two bedrooms to choose from-The "Angel Room" master bedroom with the angel tapestry overlooking the queen-sized bed is decorated in the old New Orleans tradition and has an antique 40's vanity and a beautiful fireplace at the opposite wall. The mattress is a posturepedic and is "heavenly" to sleep on. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a memory foam mattress. There is one large hollywood bathroom done in an old movie style theme with old time pictures of movie stars and vintage movie posters. The Hollywood bathroom has two entryways.

You can spend all day and relax in a stress-free environment. Another spa I belong to has a wonderful hydromassage bed and massage chair that is free for one guest at a time.
My sister especially enjoyed the theatres. " Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams actually produced here was a very special and unique play she will always remember. Movies are often filmed in New Orleans during the warmer months and I have ran across "movie shoots " in progress while taking guests around to see the sights. This was quite exciting and you never know what you may see while you are visiting. My mother and myself had the opportunity to be extras in a commercial a few years ago and it was quite an experience and fun to do.
The horse and buggy is a great way to visit the French Quarter and the drivers will often give you a colorful description of the history of the city and surrounding areas.
I have had a couple who spent their honeymoon here and a few celebrated their birthdays. I try to create a welcoming and homelike atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
If you need to cook you are welcome to do so with full access to the kitchen.
There is also a great patio to use for smoking or to just enjoy the nice atmosphere of the outdoors.
Interaction with guests
I will be on my cell phone 24/7 if my guests need
me for anything.
Beautifully landscaped and well kept
Of course there is public transportation (taxis, buses, etc) When I am available I will often give rides to the French Quarter and different locations . This is a courtesy at no charge but tips are greatly appreciated in order to compensate for gas and considerable time involvedSince trips to the airport back and forth require even more gas and time, a $15.00 charge is required each way. Sorry guys, but Uber and taxis are much more expensive.
Other things to note
Children are welcome at no charge. Pets are fine if they are well behaved and house trained. Please give a 24 hour notice so that I may prepare your room properly.
Though th!e condominium will be shared, it is a two bedroom with one hollywood bathroom, Everyone's privacy is greatly respected. Smoking is allowed but only outside on the covered patio where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine and take in the beautiful garden.
I do have space for a vehicle but cannot accommodate a trailer, U-Haul, truck or kayak.
Please do not bring your beloved pet unless you let me know first so that I can be aware and can make sure it is ok with other guests that I may have at the same time.
