About this listing
Please be our guest in the newly renovated apartment situated at the back of our really old (1850s), charmingly-dilapidated house. It’s just a couple blocks from the parade route/street car/St. Charles, and only about a mile from the Superdome. They don’t call it Central City for nothing!
Walk past the main house, down a winding brick pathway, and up the stairs to the private entrance. You enter into the kitchen, with concrete countertops, old wood floors, and plenty of sunlight pouring through the original wood windows with old bubbly glass. Fix yourself a drink and head up the spiral stairs to the bedroom.
Just around the iron handrail is a full size bed, and plenty of reading material about the places you’ll want to see and the food you’ll want to eat while you’re here.
Then venture out the bedroom door onto the balcony. Did I mention you’re on the third floor now? The view is excellent, the palm trees sway in the wind, and you can hear the marching bands as they pass down the parade route.
I almost forgot the bathroom. Honestly, it’s not huge. But it’s everything you need, plus a claw foot tub. And cozy towels, and bubble bath, and . . . well, it’s a bathroom.
And just in case you’re wondering, it also has a flat-screen tv, cable, internet, a microwave, a coffee maker, all the things you need in a kitchen, and probably some welcoming Abita beers in the fridge.
The property is fenced in and guests have access to all of the "yard area". There's a bit of a back patio with some old flagstones, a dining table, a few plants and a few chickens. Everyone is welcome to sit out and have a drink or a smoke if they'd like. For guests that are staying a while, I try to make my laundry room available. Just ask when you arrive and I'll point you in the right direction.
I live in the main house so I'm usually available. But my interaction with guests really just depends on how much they want to chat with me versus hitting the streets. I love getting to hear everyone's stories about where they're from and what they're seeing while in town, but I understand when guests want some privacy. So I try to walk the line.
Central City is the Best! We're right in the middle of everything. . . and I don't mean right in the middle of the French Quarter, I mean in the middle of a less touristy, little bit quieter New Orleans. We're just on the edge of the Garden District, a short walk from Magazine St, and just 3 blocks form the streetcar line.
Plus, we're only one block from the super hip, up and coming Oretha Castle Haley Blvd where you'll find the best coffee, the indiest movies, a few restaurants, the new Food and Beverage Museum, and a tatoo parlor in case you're in the market. So come check out my neighborhood, you'll love it like I do!
It's super easy to get around from here. We're just 3 blocks from the newly reworked streetcar line. For $1.25 it'll take you to the Quarter or all the way uptown.
And then if you just feel like hoofing it, we're within walking distance of Magazine St, the Garden District and even the French Quarter if you're up for it.
Please be considerate of my neighbors. They're great! So say "Hi" to them, don't park in front of their driveways, and try not to make too much noise too late.
No smoking inside. No pets.
Please do not have packages delivered to my house.
That's about it. Enjoy.

Hi. I'm Jackson. I'm originally from Baton Rouge. I went to school at Loyola University and have been crazy about New Orleans ever since. About a year ago I bought this incredible old house in the middle of the city and I've been renovating it a little bit at a time. It still needs lots of work, but the apartments in the back are finished and beautiful. Now I enjoy hosting so many interesting travelers and look forward to all those that are coming.
