Interaction with Guests
I am happy to help answer any questions- I do work so I will not usually be available in person but I can respond quickly electronically. We are usually able to check you in in person, but if you arrive very late (after 10 PM), we suggest a self check in. We are more than happy to make suggestions or to help out with directions. The area in which the guest house is located offers a lot within walking distance, and we are very close to public transportation lines.
Very charming and historic neighborhood with plenty of unique shops, restaurants, and historic homes. Easy access to other parts of town.
Public transport (buses) is just a few blocks away; streetcar access on St. Charles is about 8 blocks away. There is also a bike rental place about 4 blocks away.
Other Things to Note
This is a great place to stay to get to know New Orleans beyond the French Quarter. The French Quarter is beautiful and easily accessible from the guest house (about a 10 minute drive), but there is a lot more to New Orleans. Note that although we have recently upgraded to a very nice, new sofa bed, that is the apartment's primary bed, and if you have more elaborate mattress needs, this apartment is probably not for you.
We ask that you leave the guest house in good shape and that you keep the noise level down if you are in the backyard late at night. We have had a really great experience with our Airbnb guests- we are very flexible and we enjoy getting to meet people from all over the world.
