About this listing
Ours is a three-story condo in the Faubourg Marigny, voted one of the ten best neighborhoods in America. There are 3 coffee shops within a two-block area; Frenchmen St. (the locals' Bourbon) with clubs and restaurants is a ten-minute walk and the French Quarter five minutes further. Jazz Fest is a straight shot down Esplanade Avenue and an hour's walk if you don't want to deal with car or cab.
Our condo is over a hundred-years-old with 12-foot ceilings, balcony, hardwood floors, stone fireplaces and brick walls but was totally remodeled after Katrina. From the double-doored (total security) entry, the stairs lead to the main floor, consisting of a large living room with balcony, dining room which seats 6, kitchen, library with Pottery Barn queen sleeper sofa, and 1 1/2 baths. The huge Master Bedroom and bath are on the third floor with king-size brass bed, skylights, and a window with view of the city skyline. Washer/dryer and off-street parking.
No smoking, no parties, and love it as much as we do!

I am a Professor of English and my husband owns an employee-benefits firm. Our weekday/workaday world is in the northern part of the state while our weekend/wonderful world is in New Orleans, our favorite of all cities. The love must be contagious as two of our children, both lawyers, have relocated there. Seldom do we use the car as days consist of exercise along the river and strolling the French Quarter while nights feature a neighborhood restaurant, music on Frenchmen Street, theatre at Southern Rep, or movie at Canal Place.
Still, we love to travel, one of our favorite destinations having been Egypt before the turmoil. Since we met in NYC, we make regular pilgrimages and pretend to be tourists. It's that feeling of being local that we hope our New Orleans condo inspires in our guests.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
