The Space

*** No pets of any size allowed.
*** Mardi Gras*** 2 persons max, no pets.

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. My wife and I feel 100% safe here and believe that you will feel the same

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.

  • We loved our stay in New Orleans! The room was comfortable, and the animals and fruit trees were charming. Michael was very helpful with tips of where to eat and visit.

  • Me and my bf stayed at Michael's place for 5 nights. Michael was an easy-going, flexible, friendly host. He made himself available to us if we had any questions or concerns and at the same time allowed us our privacy. He gave us suggestions of what to do/where to eat in the city, as well as giving us two "beach cruisers" (bikes) that we used to get around the city (which is the best way to see the city, btw). The city is flat so the bikes were fine. We also paid much less for them then we would have from a bike rental shop. If you stay here I would double check as to whether the Charles St. streetcar is in operation because if it is not - like it wasn't while we were there - you really need a bike to see the city...unless of course you plan to just hang out in the Garden District, which is an easy walk from the house. The neighborhood is located a little north of the Garden District - which is a beautiful, wealthy neighborhood with a number of great restaurants, bars, and shops. Michael's place is located in a transitional area, meaning it is located in between the wealthier Garden District and some of the poorer neighborhoods in the city. We personally felt comfortable and safe walking and biking home at night. It really depends on your comfort level. Perks I would include are: having our own separate private, locked entrance to our room (and our own bathroom), a Keurig coffee maker, a microwave, mini refrigerator, a washer and dryer (and laundry detergent), free wireless internet service, and free blueberry muffins every morning. You have to be ok with dogs (they have two), as they can be a bit noisy at times, however nothing that bothered us or would deter us from returning. They also have two ducks and two chickens (very cute) that you will hardly notice are even there in the yard.

  • We stayed at Michael's during jazz fest and had the best time. The room is immaculate and exactly as pictured. Michael was such a kind host, leaving homemade muffins with coffee for us in the mornings. The house is conveniently located right off St Charles which is walking distance to Magazine. You could also catch a cheap cab to the quarter from St Charles. We felt very safe in the neighborhood, especially when walking from St Charles and up Sixth. We loved staying at Michaels and will definitely be back!

  • Overall a very comfortable stay. The room was somewhat small with the cot set up but both the bed and cot were very comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean. Michael was very helpful with directions getting around town on public transport and allowed us to drop off our bags before check in time. Be aware that as of April 2014 the St Charles streetcar line is under maintenance in the middle of town (including the stop for this bnb), requiring a transfer to a bus for a short distance, adding a little time to travel downtown to the quarter or uptown to the universities, but not such a big deal.

  • Michael was super accommodating! We flew in and were able to book last minute on our drive from the airport. The location is perfect and central. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars. The room has it's own private entrance, and everything is super clean, new and comfortable. Michael even hooked us up with fishing poles on our last day there. Overall great experience.

  • Michael's room is cozy, comfy, and private. He was wonderfully accommodating on our check-in time and gave us a very friendly welcome, offering suggestions for things to do in New Orleans. The house is a very convenient walk to the street car, making it easy to get around. It is also convenient to great dining and shopping on Magazine Street and close to wonderful walks in the Gardent District. Michael was simultaneously unobtrusive and attentive. Thanks!

  • The place is as described. The room was imaculate and cozy. There was a coffee machine with at least 4 varieties, bananas and breakfast bread- which was a plus so we wouldn't have to rush out for breakfast. Michael and Racheal were very helpful with any questions we had about the areas of interests and activities. The dogs only bark when you walk in or leave...but very sweet. They actually made it very safe.

    March 2014
  • They were great! You get your privacy and they gave us plenty of ideas on places to go. I would stay again!

  • We could not have dreamt of having better hosts than Michael and his lovely wife Rachel. Being new to New Orleans and Mardi Gras, we were unaware of how difficult it'd be to get a taxi even at 11am. When we did not arrived at the expected time, Rachel had reached out to us to make sure we were ok and even picked us up!

    The room is bright, spacious, and in absolute immaculate condition. We were offered some very delicious muffins and oj in the morning.

    Our only regret was that we did not have more time to spend there!

    March 2014
  • Michael and his wife were very inviting and helpful, it was our first time in New Orleans and we definitely enjoyed it. The location is great and the room was perfect as well.

About
My wife and I currently have 2 dogs, 2 chickens, and 2 ducks. We like to be the urban farmer type but find it hard to really be able to do that and pay the bills. We love to play scrabble and be out in nature. Crabbing is one thing that we think everyone will enjoy. Maybe we will offer that as an excursion of sorts. Rae and I both moved here independently to love on people and figure out ways to impact hurting communities. 5 things I cant live without: 1. My Wife 2. Toothpaste 3. Toothbrush 4. Pocket Knife 5. Bicycle As travelers we are probably the worst tourists since we really enjoy being in the woods to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. When we do travel to places we like to try to understand what out is like for locals, and we like to find awesome restaurants. As our guest you will probably be first greeted by our chickens and ducks. Then you will probably hear barks from our dogs that sound scary but are friendly and playful. The room that we currently have setup has a raised ful bed and we can bring in an amazing camping sleeping pad if needed for an additional person, and regular sleeping pad for another. You will have you own full bath, and we hope to have a semi private entry up soon.
