Uptown Apartment - comfortable

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Jena Street, New Orleans, LA 70115, United States

The Space

It's a quick trip to the French Quarter, Super Dome, and Audubon Park from this apartment. It is also convenient to Loyola and Tulane Universities.

This apartment is clean and is dedicated to AirBnB customers. It is not a home that is only trying to capitilize on large events and festivals in New Orleans. It is a comfortable private space and it's a unique oppurtunity to stay in one of the older parts of New Orleans that has wonderful history. It is a large loft style apartment with a front and back entrance. It is cozy and comfortable and it's located in a great part of Uptown New Orleans that did not flood during Hurricane Katrina. It's close to great food and musical entertainment.

Very nice space with a tall, vaulted ceiling and a loft style bedroom with a skylight. It is bright and comfortable with lots of natural light. There is a large living area with a full size couch and a big dining room table. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, and a grocery store. For music lovers, Tipitiina's live music club is just around the corner. You can walk a couple blocks to Magazine street and enjoy local shops and local cuisine.

Free WiFi internet access and basic cable TV.

  • We came to New Orleans for the 2013 Super Bowl. No available hotel rooms or ridiculous prices coupled with 3 or 4 night minimums for most B&Bs. After looking at several places on Airbnb, we decided to go with John's loft apartment.

    His place is located in a fairly quiet neighborhood (in Uptown). 2 1/2 blocks from Magazine Street and about 7 blocks from St. Charles. Conveniently walking distance to several bars and restaurants. Close to the Magazine St. bus or the St. Charles Trolley.

    The loft was comfortable and clean. Bathroom is a bit small and you do have to walk downstairs from the "bedroom." Water pressure was great!

    Bed was comfortable and I slept fairly well.

    We weren't in the apt that much during our 2 night/2 day stay. But it is comfortable, cozy and gives you the flexibility of a full fridge and oven/stove if you'd like.

    John was very communicative before our stay and answered all questions and was very prompt in answering (even late night for him). He also surprised us with some bottled water in the fridge, some snacks and a Super Bowl guide as a gift.

    If you are looking for a nice, quiet alternative to a hotel room in the Quarter, I would highly recommend John's loft apt. And explore Uptown and spend part of your stay playing a "local" at the spots along Magazine St. Plus, you can easily get to the Quarter via bus or trolley so no need to rent a car!

I am a real estate agent in New Orleans. After moving around to different parts of the country after graduating from college, I couldn't wait to move back to my hometown. In my opinion, New Orleanians are the most cordial and genuine people in the country. I have never visited another place where you can just walk up and chat with people you've never met before. And there are few places where you can get cuisine like we offer here. Forget chain restaurants, you can count on your hands how many we have in New Orleans. There are a lot of new restaurants that pop up all the time introducing new and unique menus. And there are many old-line restaurants that offer classic items that never get old. If you come to town, you're going to end up talking about your experiences with food. My brother and I own a historic 4-plex in Uptown New Orleans. We have been told that it was a servant's quarters for a Plantation house that used to be in the area. I have tried to find details but can't confirm it, but it does have that appearance. When I work in the yard to do some landscaping, I always find old bottles, broken china, and lots of interesting pieces that were tossed out way back. I grew up in New Orleans and graduated from De la Salle High School. My degree is is in Industrial Engineering, but most of my career has been in sales. I enjoy working with clients to buy and sell properties in the New Orleans area. It's very enjoyable to work in the older areas of town showing historical properties. Nothing is more exciting than seeing an old house renovated with modern luxuries, but having the designs retain an old New Orleans feel. I am new to AirBnB, but I look forward to meeting many new friends from around the world that will come to New Orleans.
