Interaction with Guests
You will RARELY see me because I'm always working or studying:)
***NOTE: Every blue moon, I have a guest who cancels their reservation without even staying one night. They say the neighborhood "seems unsafe." However, if they knew the REAL New Orleans, they'd know that 80% of the city looks like my neighborhood. Yet, I'm grateful that I've had over 130 open-mined people who wanted an experience "off the beaten path" and who've left awesome reviews to assure the masses that there's nothing to worry about here!
There's New Orleans, the very commercialized place that would make you believe that the French Quarter is all there is. But then there's NEW ORLEANS, the city whose struggles are real but celebrations are even more real and paramount!!! We get down, and my neighborhood itself is one of the cultural centers of the city. Music and traditions run rampant through my streets from the occasional Saturday 2nd line where neighbors just join right in and dance to the brass band music, to our street preacher whose congregation is outside rather than in, and boy does he love to sing! Not too far up the road is Cafe Reconcile, an award winning restaurant that hires at risk teens and teaches them entrepreneurial skills. Any given day you'll find the mayor there or even Saints players. Let's not mention that the 2nd largest Mardi Gras parade (Zulu) literally rolls right behind my house on Fat Tuesday! So, if you prefer the stately mansions of St. Charles Avenue as the view from your window, this accommodation is NOT for you. Yet, if you want to get the local's perspective of living and partake in some of the cities' oldest traditions, then come right along. However, anything that you would want to see or do provides convenience in EVERY direction of my house:
(North) 7 blocks from the Superdome and the NEW trolley that goes from the Superdome for a short ride to Canal Street, Bourbon Street, the French Quarter, and more!
(East) 15 blocks to the St. Charles Avenue trolley
(West) 3 blocks from Interstate-10
(South) Easy cab ride to the Tulane/Loyola University area
My bike is yours for your stay and comes with a lock! Or…you can take the RTA which is three blocks away. Or…you can take a cab…or Uber!
It's New Orleans! No curfew...have fun...be safe...be polite...and leave the house better than you found it!
We had a great time staying with Whitney. Her house is gorgeous, and we had two very comfortable nights there, before continuing our road trip. Whitney was very welcoming and sweet. Her personal guide to New Orleans was great, and included things we wouldnt otherwise have discovered. Would love to stay again when we return to NOLA.
Had a wonderful experience staying in Whitney's place. The house is beautifully decorated and is nice and spacious. The room had a very comfortable bed and I had my own bathroom to use with a good pressure shower. The house is spotlessly clean.
Brilliant host and home. In a central part of NOLA, very comfortable and easy to get to all the quirks of this city.
The house was amazing. The privacy of the upstairs is unbeatable and the bathroom is HUGE! Whitney provides an incredible space in an incredible location and her welcome packet was not only helpful but hilarious. I would definitely love to stay here again if I'm ever in New Orleans!
Had a really enjoyable stay with Whitney. We had some issues with our flights to new Orleans being delayed but Whitney was great and was very accommodating. the list of things to do and information about how to get around was really helpful and greatly appreciated. Location was good an easy walk / cheap taxi into town / french quarter. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
Neighborhood was great. She gave me suggestions on where to go. Amazing places. House was clean.
Whitney was great! She let my partner and I come early when we arrived sooner than expected. She was super understanding after we had a few mishaps. Her home was comfortable, clean and there was plenty of food to eat. She gave us our privacy. The neighborhood was typical New Orleans neighborhood and was literally minutes away from EVERYTHING. This experience set the bar for my airbnb experience.

About the Host, Whitney
I work in education, so it's my job to be extremely organized and friendly. I love New Orleans' nightlife from the food to the live music...there's never a dull moment!
