This is for an entire apartment with a living/dining room with a queen size bed plus a comfortable queen size fold out sleeper sofa, bedroom, bathroom, and fully stocked kitchen in an historic 1870s house in Uptown New Orleans. The apartment consists of two very large rooms (18 x 18 feet) plus a bathroom. In the classic New Orleans "shotgun" house tradition, one enters the apartment into the living/dining room, then proceeds to the bedroom, and bath. Which is to say, one must walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. The living/dining room consists of a kitchen stocked with basic pots and pans for cooking plus a toaster oven and coffee pot, table and chairs, queen size bed and a sleeper sofa. This living/dining room is next to the street and can sometimes be a bit noisy during the day but is generally quite at night. Both rooms have hi-quality comfortable queen size beds with 100% cotton sheets and duvet covers with goose down duvets and pillows. This is not a high-end luxury accommodation. This is a very old house and can be rough around the edges in some places. Which is to say the place is not fancy but is very pleasant with wood floors and 12 foot high ceiling. The apartment comes with wifi and there is on-street parking. There is a three-night minimum stay for this apartment.
The house is located 3 blocks off Magazine Street within walking distance to many restaurants, cafes, and bars. This is a very old classic New Orleans house on Washington Avenue, lined with grand oak trees. This is a great accommodation if you want to stay in a New Orleans neighborhood and meet local people.
The property is centrally located, next to the Garden District, with the Magazine Street bus to uptown and downtown in close proximity and a 10 minute walk to the St. Charles Streetcar line and the MARDI GRAS PARADE ROUTES. The house is located in the heart of the "Irish Channel," a great funky and culturally diverse New Orleans neighborhood with grocery stores, nightlife, unique shopping boutiques along Magazine Street, and bars and restaurants throughout the area, including Coquette (corner of Washington Ave and Magazine), Community Coffee, Commander's Palace, Sake Café, Joey K’s Restaurant and Bar, La Divina Gelateria, The Rum House, and CC’s Coffee House. Located a few blocks from Belladonna Day Spa and Parasol’s Bar and Restaurant.
Guest will have access to this entire apartment.
Interaction with Guests
The guests have total privacy and we interact with them only to ensure that they are having a pleasant stay. We are available to assist them with any concerns or questions they may have. We are always happy to offer tips and advice about the area and New Orleans in general.
This is a fantastic historic neighborhood with great architecture. The majority of the houses in the area were built in the 19th century. Yet the neighborhood is far from a "museum" (like the Garden District, just across Magazine Street). Rather, it is a thriving neighborhood of great social, ethnic and economic diversity ranging from professionals to working class families. The immediate neighborhood is very lively with many types of characters on the streets. There is lots of pedestrian activity along Washington Avenue between the Irish Channel to Magazine Street and St. Charles Avenue. I have lived in this area for nearly two decades and I am deeply attached to the special character of the place.
There is a bus only three block away that goes to Uptown (Audubon Park and the Zoo) or directly downtown to the French Quarter.
Before leaving, the garbage should be taken out and put in the outside garbage bins.
We had an awesome time staying at Anthony's place! While it is definitely not luxury accommodations it was perfect for our group of six during French Quarter Festival. We had everything we needed and got some great tips about local spots from Indira. Our hosts were super accommodating and friendly and we definitely recommend the place to anyone looking for a no frills, local experience while visiting New Orleans.
We had a great stay at Anthony's. He has a wonderful, spacious, clean, and quiet apartment just off Magazine street. My family (including two children) felt safe and happy in the apartment. We always found parking near the apartment and could easily walk to some great restaurants on Magazine. The kitchen is well equipped, so we cooked a few breakfasts and lunches there. We will definitely stay here again if it's available.
The apartment was clean and spacious, with more than enough room to accommodate my group during the five nights we spent there. We loved the neighborhood, with its colorful shotgun houses and the mansions of the garden district a very short walk away. We took the streetcar down to the Quarter most days, and if we took a cab back it was usually in the $10-15 range. There's plenty of parking outside the house. It's definitely a no-frills space, as other reviewers have mentioned, but you don't come to New Orleans to spend all your time inside, right?
The photos don't do the apartment justice- the rooms are enormous, everything was clean, simple and perfect. More than enough room for four of us. Indira was welcoming and friendly. The neighborhood is very local and quiet but still lots of great food and shopping an easy walk away.
The place was vey convenient for finding food. We were about a $15/10 min cab away from the French Quarter. The place was pretty clean and Indira was helpful!
This place was perfect for our group of four friends! There was plenty of space and, although we went during a cold time of the year, the three heaters kept us warm. The home was clean and had everything you could need: dishes, towels, soap, beddings, etc. Indira was a great hostess. She was very welcoming and gave us wonderful tips on places to eat, drink, and enjoy the city. She took the time to help us with directions and become familiar with the New Orleans culture. She was also very accessible if we needed her.
The neighborhood was in a perfect location! It was walking distance to a lot of eateries and bars. It was several blocks from the street car that brought us into the French Quarter within 15 minutes. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great time at this property. It's far enough off of busy streets so that things don't get too crazy, but close enough to Magazine Street that a five minute stroll gets you into the heart of some great restaurants and bars, or hop on the #11 bus and head downtown. Very comfy beds and a great couch made it a great place to crash at the end of the day, and a more than adequate kitchen made it easy to eat it and save a few bucks. Both Anthony and Indira made us feel at home and welcome, and their hospitality was fantastic. We would definitely stay here again if were back in New Orleans (which is pretty likely).
