The Neighborhood

The Irish Channel is a converted sugar plantation. The original plantation house is right down the street. The shotgun and Creole cottage style homes were built to house the many dock workers who migrated to New Orleans in the late 19th century, many of them from Brooklyn NY. The now famous Magazine St. is 3 blocks away which has miles of small shops boutiques restaurants and bars. The NOLA brewery is at the bottom of the Street on Tchoupitoulas. The Irish Channel is centrally located between The CBD, French Quarter and Audubon park.

Getting around

The St. Charles streetcar is 8 blocks away and the city bus is 2 blocks away that runs from Canal St. to Audubon park.

  • Lee was an extremely communicative host! As a very picky, and not the easiest to please person, I have to say, I am beyond pleased with my stay at Lee's house. My friend and I stayed for a week during the 4th of July weekend and were both extremely happy.

    His place is far nicer and larger than what you see in the pictures. The house has high very high ceilings and is extremely clean and spacious and is in a safe, quiet and convenient neighborhood a very short walk to all of the Magazine Street shops and restaurants. We felt like we had a much more comfortable experience staying at Lee's than our friends who stayed at our friends who stayed at some of the nicest hotels in the area.

    Highly Recommended!!

  • I stayed in Lee's apartment for 3 nights during Jazz Fest with my girlfriend.

    This apartment is heaven on earth. You can't beat the location if you prefer an authentic NOLA experience. This was my 8th time in the city and by far the best place I have stayed in-- beats all hotels and locations. Peace and quiet too which is very hard to come by in New Orleans!

    Magazine street is just a short walk away with amazing shopping, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and a seafood/crawfish market. The warehouse district is walkable and the French Quarter and Frenchman Street both a short taxi ride away. The NOLA brewing company is just down the street, one of the city's only micro breweries.

    The apartment is impeccably decorated with local art that will blow your mind and inspire you to buy some yourself. Air conditioning worked like a charm and the place was spotless. Bottles of water and guide books around the apartment, along with very friendly neighbors enhanced our stay. Great Wifi, speaker system, towels, blow drier and an easy alarm system.

    Lee is an excellent host. He is a very good communicator and helped us when we wanted some restaurant recommendations. Atchafalaya restaurant is a must for brunch, under a 10 minute walk.

    A+ overall. Apartment is much better than pictures too!

  • Absolutely loved. Great location, walk to the best restaurants on Magazine Street. Charming neighborhood. Rent bikes and explore the entire city. House is really comfortable and well appointed. As a former NOLA resident I highly recommend this place. We will return!

  • The house was even nicer than expected. We had a great time and really enjoyed the neighborhood. Short walk to all the restaurants on Magazine and not far from the streetcar on St. Charles. The kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil you would need to do any sort of cooking. Definitely going to stay here again next time I'm in New Orleans.

  • Lee's place was perfect for our stay in New Orleans. It was just as described. The house was beautifully updated and very cozy with lots of local art. The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed getting to know the neighborhood. It was fun to be able to walk to local shops, bars and restaurants. Lee communicated readily through texts as needed, although there really wasn't much need as everything was fine.

  • Lee's cottage provided a fabulous home for our visit to New Orleans. Great location, just a short walk to Magazine Street and its fantastic restaurants and shops. The cottage, on a quiet street, had everything we could want. The home was neat, clean and just "as advertised" in the pictures. Lee was a great communicator. Staying here and walking up to our temporarily "own" front door helped to make our stay one of the best of many visits to New Orleans.

  • Lee's shotgun allowed me both convenience and privacy during the 2014 NBA All-star weekend/Kickoff of Mardi Gras/Valentine's Day weekend festivities. I was very impressed with the eclectic vibe of the neighborhood and the friendly, carefree demeanor of Lee's neighbors.

    Lee's shotgun is absolutely stunning and handsomely designed. Bottomline, this is THE LOCATION to be if you want to enjoy the non-tourist side of New Orleans.

  • What a nice place in such a great location! My wife and I had grown tired of the smelly craziness of the Quarter and wanted to see a more laid back part of town that was still very New Orleans-ish, and the Garden District did not disappoint. Lee was an awesome communicator, had everything prepared for our arrival and took great care of us, allowing us to relax and enjoy our time there. The house and neighborhood were both clean and quiet, just a short walk to Magazine Street and all those cool shops and restaurants in the area. Four big thumbs up for Lee and his house!

  • For my first time renting through Airbnb, I couldn't have asked for a nicer home, or better host! Lee was great with communicating everything needed prior to our stay, and was always quick to respond with any questions I needed to ask before we arrived as well as while we were there. I would most certainly rent from Lee again when we come back to New Orleans!

    As for the house...amazing! It was the perfect spot for my wife and I, as we typically stay in the Quarter during visits to Nola but wanted to stay in an actual neighborhood/less touristy part of town this time around. The house is beautifully appointed with local artwork, and has been nicely updated with modern amenities while retaining it's classic charm. Lee has also gone out of his way to keep the house well stocked with toiletries, extra sheets, towels, you name it...just in case you need extras or forgot to bring something of your own. I can honestly say that I was more comfortable at Lee's house than any other vacation rental I've had (have rented ~7-8 other homes via (website hidden)/(website hidden) in the past), and you can definitely tell that a lot of effort has gone into making it stand out.

    All in all, we had a wonderful stay, and we can't thank Lee enough for his hospitality. We would most certainly stay here again!

  • If this house was on the market, we'd seriously consider buying it. Our stay was nothing short of excellent; it was spick-and-span clean, the kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and dishes and other such things, and the location can't be beat. We felt safe walking up to Magazine Street, and the neighbors were delightful.

    Very, very highly recommended.
