About this listing
Clean house located just blocks from the Superdome & minutes from the CBD/French Quarter! Guests have access to the entire house including kitchen and wash room. One bedroom comfortably fits 2 people, but extra room available at extra cost...
The advertised rooms (2 available) are furnished, carpeted, and contain a full-sized or queen bed. They make up part of my contemporary 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bathroom home (GROUPS WELCOMED)! It is spacious and very modern, and you will certainly enjoy:) The rooms can accommodate TWO guests each. In addition, towels, soap, a blowdryer, umbrella, ect. are all provided so that you won't have to weigh down your luggage! Most people will tell you that the easiest way to get around the city is by bike, so you are more than welcome to use one or both of my spare bicycles!
The House Comes with the following Amenities: Wifi, access to the kitchen so that you can cook or store your food, access to Washer/Dryer/ detergent, access to front & backyard, and parking.
Interaction with guests
During traditional school months (late August to mid May) you will RARELY see me because I'm always working or studying:) During the summer months when I am out of school, I enjoy taking an active hosting role and am happy to chat etc. with as little or as much interaction as your preference and the energy dictate!
A lot of first time Airbnbers are hesitant to share a space with a "stranger" only to find their experiences were richer, and more comfortable as a result of choosing a host over a hotel. They are also surprised at how private their stay actually turns out to be!
I take pride in my city and my interests, and love sharing them with others, but also know (from personal experiences as a guest and almost 200 experiences hosting guests of my own) nothing is more of a bummer than a host who doesn't know boundaries or how to respect her guests' privacy. I look forward to providing you with an Airbnb experience that fits your tastes and preferences, and making your stay a perfect one!
***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 200+ 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 bikes are yours for your stay and come with a lock! Or…you can take the RTA which is three blocks away. Or…you can take a cab…or Uber or Lyft! My best friend is an uber driver and I would be happy to coordinate your transportation on or off the books for the duration of your stay, as well as your arrival and departure.
Other things to note
My bikes are yours for your stay and come with a lock! Or…you can take the RTA which is two corners away. Or…you can take an Uber, Lyft, or taxi...
It's New Orleans! No curfew...have fun, be safe and polite...and leave the house better than you found it!
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!
