We're a 20 min scenic walk from Frenchman and the French Quarter, a couple of blocks from several bus stops, all with bars, restaurants, and cafe's along the way!
Want to experience the real New Orleans? Our place is a half shotgun home. (The most popular style house in New Orleans) We are located right next to a historic cemetery that tourist pay to visit. I am a non professional tour guide, I specialize in the hidden gems that most tourist don't know about, and never get to see. Schedule permitting, I offer my services to any of our guests....free of charge. We are in walking distance to the French Quarter, it takes me about 15 to 20 minutes to walk there. There are several bus stops within a couple blocks of the house. Although we are a new listing, I have done Air b & b for about one year, in my previous house. I hope that you choose us, and can't wait to meet you. In the description it says the room accommodates 4...we can discuss more, if need be the bed will comfortably sleep 2 maybe 3, we have 2 futons, one large one, and one smaller one......the futons are in the room connected to the listed room. There are 2 of us here. I am Andy, and my roommate is Will. We both moved to this amazing city, that we now call home......to volunteer. I was only supposed to be here for 2 weeks. Six years later, I am still doing some volunteering, also I have assisted in the co-founding of 2 non profits. I teach self defense, and have recently started to get into the movie business. I have been in several movies, and a couple of TV shows ....including Treme, and now a untitled HBO series staring Woody Harelson, and Mathew McConehey, and just got my very first speaking role in a movie called Hooked. Its based on the B.P. oil spill. I am also doing the financial coordination for the movie. Will works from home writing, providing web marketing services, and covering local events as a freelance journalist. We've been friends since we met volunteering to help rebuild New Orleans and both are passionate about the history, music, and food here. We've both played host to visitors from all over the world and since we're roommates again, we decided to open the place to hosting again. To us, a big part of this is meeting and getting to know the incredible people visiting the city!
This was a great place to stay if you are looking for a comfortable home close enough to walk to the French Quarter and other main attractions. Andy was not there, but Will was very helpful and a great host. The shotgun house took a minute to get used to, but it was a great experience. I would definitely recommend staying here on your trip to New Orleans!
Our hosts were very helpful with anything we could have asked them. They were friendly and respectful of our privacy. Couldn't ask for better people to stay with.
These guys are so cool! Andy's movie and TV show business, Will and Pierre's art design and paintings... It's definitely unique experience staying at their house. And they're very helpful when I need local maps, advice for bars, restaurants and shopping. They even shared Christmas dinner with me, and it was delicious! I had a great time here and hope to see them again in the future.
Andy, Will, and Pierre were great hosts. They were super helpful right when we arrived- setting us up with maps and showing us around the house. The place is in a great location, we were able to walk to the Quarter, downtown, Bywater... anywhere we wanted to go. There are two rooms and the three of us each had our own bed/futon. Also, Will makes a mean pizza. Definitely would come back and would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great value on a place to stay in New Orleans.
Andy and Will were great hosts. They're place is in an awesome location too! It's a bit of a walk depending on where you're going, but definitely doable and actually quite nice! They definitely know their city, and some of the best moments of our trip were just talking to them about life. I definitely highly recommend these guys.
Both, Andy and Bill, were very helpful and accommodating hosts. We enjoyed their hospitality.
Très bon accueil et les hôtes nous ont donné de la bonne information.
Nous ont mis a l,aise et ambiance très agréable.
we had a terrific time in NOLA and our stay with Andy contributed to it a lot, wonderful hosts, nice place, walkable to the French quarter. very helpful with all the tips a tourist needs to explore the city.. thanks!
These guys were super friendly and made us feel very at home. They gave us as much coffee as we wanted, let us watch a film on their DVD player and took time out to chat with us about the city. Great hosts.
Deux gars super, gentils et serviables, lieu assez proche de french quarter et safe. A recommander !
