The Space

Charming, historically preserved home situated in the City Park Triangle, a unique slice of the Mid City neighborhood. Two blocks to City Park (home to Voodoo Fest, New Orleans Museum of Art), 2 blocks to Canal St. streetcar to downtown and cemeteries, 10-minute stroll to Bayou St. John, the Fairgrounds (home to Jazz Fest), and surrounding restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. Also one block (actually less than) from the Mid City parade route, for you Mardi Gras visitors. The Historic French Quarter is a 7-minute drive away. Bicycles are also available for use.

This 2-story house is quiet, safe, and well-appointed with a rear balcony patio (including hammock and lots of plant life),hardwood-floor bedrooms with ample natural light and two full bathrooms. The available room has a queen bed and plenty of closet and dresser space.

I am a native New Orleanian musician and teacher. My jobs take me to every part of the city. I can (if interested) offer travel tips throughout your stay.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • First things first, Josh is a very friendly guy who will make you feel welcome in his large, clean, cool, and comfortable home. It was a pleasure to chat for a few minutes each morning about all the cool things I did the day before and all the cool things I was thinking about doing next. As a life-long resident and musician, he is dialed right into the things you want to do and see and hear and eat while visiting this amazing city.

    The location is great. The indy coffee spot, bike routes, City Park, and most essentially, the air-conditioned streetcar, are all just steps away.

    Staying here is a really great way to experience New Orleans.

  • All was just great. The location is perfect, quiet, near by the bus station and near by the street car station. Even a piano is available. Josh Crist is a wonderful person and makes sure that his guests feel good.

  • Bonne adresse, bien située non loin du quartier français. Josh est très discret, c'est un bon hôte qui nous a vite mis à l'aise. Et quel chien adorable!

    Good localisation, near from French quarter. Josh is discrete and very nice. He is a good host who feel us at ease. And such a lovely pet!
    Thank you Josh !

  • Had a great stay in New Orleans at Josh's place! Comfortable and very convenient to everything we were doing (in town for a friend's wedding).

  • Josh's place was a getaway in itself. The pictures of the house do it no justice. His house is absolutely beautiful, his neighborhood is enchanting - mid-city is sweet little community within a community, nothing but friendly people and more importantly, friendly dogs. Josh had a ton of information for us, from maps and brochures to suggestions and directions. Definitely make use of his guidebook here on airbnb, especially if you want the "local" experience. We had an amazing time and plan on returning as quickly as possible.

    Josh and zookah are worth the trip to new orleans all on their own! If only there were more than five stars.

  • We had a pleasant stay at Josh's place for our short trip to NOLA. The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet, but with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Josh is also friendly, kind and helpful. Great place.

  • Josh was a great host, really friendly and accommodating. House was lovely and clean, comfy bed, and we were made to feel really welcome. I'd definitely stay here again if I ever go back to New Orleans. My only grumble is that we had some dramas with public transport, but I think that was only because it was Mardi Gras. Any other time of the year shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for everything, Josh! Kate & Adrian

  • Great place to stay in NOLA . Safe neighborhood. Josh is gracious, friendly, and helpful. The room is large enough for 2. A comfortable bed and private bathroom . The place is clean and comfortable. A couple of blocks from City Park and Art Museum. Would absolutely stay here again when we return to NOLA.

  • We enjoyed being in a quieter part of New Orleans close to city park. It is also close to restaurants and grocery stores which is convenient. When we wanted to see the Mardi Gras parades we just hopped on the Canal St. trolley which is close by. Josh was a great host; friendly, conversational, and informative with suggestions on how to enjoy our time in New Orleans.

  • Josh was a lovely host, non interfering, very respectful. Great, quiet family-friendly neighborhood for walking and catching public transportation and close to restaurants. Charming home! And an awesome pet dog, too.

Welcome! I grew up in and around NOLA and feel fortunate to be able to call this place home. I am an active musician and music teacher and I'd be happy to give guidance and suggestions about interesting, offbeat things to get into while staying here.
