Enjoy staying in a modern home designed and built by Tulane Architecture students. We are centrally located to all that the city has to offer, and its easy access to the interstate, and public transportation. We are a great place for Runners/Joggers because we are so close to St. Charles, where you can run along the streetcar line on dirt. Foodies and shoppers will love that they are 8 blocks away from Magazine Street. (website hidden)
We are three blocks away from the St. Charles, and 2 miles from Canal Street. You have easy access to the St. Charles Streetcar line (there's a stop 3 blocks away), so its easy to get around.
We are great location during Mardi Gras. You can catch the uptown Mardi Gras Parades, or wait for those Mardi Gras Indians to pass by the house on Mardi Gras day.
You can also wait on the porch to catch the Second Line parades.
You're minutes away from Commander's Palace, Magazine Street, old cemeteries and the rest of the Garden District, the best of all you can walk there if you want.
The room has lots of natural light and private full bath. You will have a separate entrance from the rest of the house. There is a partition that give us access to restock the Keurig and whatnot. You'll have a mini fridge, keurig machine (coffee & teas), ceramic mugs, microwave, and wifi-internet. Our whole house is also hooked up to a water filter. You will not have access to our kitchen or the rest of our house. There's a grocery store called Fresh Market, and a drug store, Rite Aid, about 1/4 mile away.
The house is in an urban environment, so you may hear sirens, other commotion, or the occasional brass band playing in a second line down the street. We are also a mini-urban farm. We have chickens, ducks and 2 dogs. To be very honest, we are also in a transition area where it seems more "hood" so you will be investing into the comeback of this neighborhood if you book with us. I feel 100% safe here and believe that you will feel the same, I have lived here since May 2008.
We can provide you with some earplugs if needed, or a fan to drown out the sounds with ambient noise.
The bed is a full size bed. If you have more than 2 guests, or want a separate bed we can provide a twin size cot for one, or it can be bunked so that there is 2 more beds. This is ideal for parents with kids. 4 adults is a little too much for the space. The cot is more comfortable than an airbed, and we put a memory foam pad, or a Thermarest Dreamrest sleeping pad on it. I personally wouldn't hesitate to seep on it over a regular bed. If you are two guests and would like the cot set up there will be a $25 setup. FYI when the cot is set up it does make it a little cramped.
** Mardi Gras season and special events may require 3 night minimums or increased rates.
Separate entrance. Full Bath. Mini Fridge. Microwave and Keurig!
Interaction with guests
We usually have minimal interaction unless our guests need help or information
Our neighborhood has easy access to the parades on St. Charles during Mardi Gras. We also have easy access to the interstate. Second line parades go right by the front of our house, and Mardi Gras Indians gather right outside our house too.
It's easy to get around the street car stop is 3 blocks away. We are also 10 minutes to the interstate.
We have a few house rules for everyone's sanity, and safety including our animals.
1) When you enter or exit gates, be sure to latch them shut. We don't want our doggies getting outside the fence when they get let out.
2) We work full-time, so please be quiet/respectful when coming home late.
3) Don't bring guests, lovers, or strangers over to the house.
4) If you need to use the washer or dryer, please let us know to assist with setting it up.
5) Be sure to lock doors when you leave and come home, even if only for a few minutes.
6) Please be respectful of our neighbors.
7) No drugs or excessive drinking and no smoking in or around the house.
Please be courteous, this is our home as well. It would be great if you would take off your shoes just after you enter the house, that would be amazing. It will just save the floors in the long run.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.

I currently have 2 dogs, I like to be the urban farmer type but find it hard to manage that with the rest of life.
I love to be out in nature. Crabbing is one thing that we think everyone will enjoy here in New Orleans if you can get out there.
I moved here to love on people and figure out ways to impact hurting communities.
As a traveler I am probably the worst tourist since I really enjoy being in the woods to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. When I do travel to places I like to try to understand what it is like for locals, and I like to find awesome restaurants.
As my guest you will probably be first greeted by barks from my dogs that sound scary but are friendly and playful. I have two spaces listed on Airbnb, and I try to set it up where you can manage everything on your own, even checking in.
