Come rest & rejuvenate here during your exciting stay in La Nouvelle Orleans!
The Jazz Room is a unique and relaxing sanctuary, perfect for recharging after an adventurous time exploring the city. It features deep purple walls and a comfortable bed with super-soft linens. The lovely morning sun will nudge you awake so you don't sleep through the day's possibilities! The washroom is a few steps away, and a short walk through the kitchen brings you to the lovely back yard.
Our home is a traditional shotgun house; a historic style unique to New Orleans. The rooms are laid out in a direct line from front to back with no hallways. For your privacy and comfort, there is a private entrance between the two bedrooms/ across from the washroom. We ask that our guests leave rooms open when not home or not in need of privacy, to allow others to pass through the house.
We are both local working artists, and our studios are in the first two rooms of the house. After that comes the Anne Rice Room, with a bed for 2. The bathroom is on the left after that, with the side entrance on the right. The Mermaid Room comes next, and also sleeps 2. The quaint kitchen has plenty of utensils and appliances, and the laundry room is available for your use as well. The back door opens up into a lovely sunny yard with an herb garden.
Our home is ideally seated blocks away from the St. Claude Arts District, the French Quarter, the Marigny and the Bywater neighborhoods.
Browse the many art galleries, bars, music venues, restaurants, and coffee shops just a short walk away.
Also, make sure to visit the brand new New Orleans Healing Center! Just 2 blocks away, it's a beautiful space complete with a grocery store, bookstore, art markets, yoga, a gym, and more. There is public transportation 3 blocks away and ample free parking.
*** Our other rooms are available separately, and the entire home will be available for rent on a limited basis ***
You will have access to the washroom, kitchen, laundry room, and backyard, which are all shared spaces. The front two rooms are the working studios, which we welcome you to view but ask to leave private.
Interaction with Guests
We will be happy to greet you and point you towards the best local restaurants, coffee shops, and music venues. We usually work in the art studio during the day, but schedules vary so feel free to shoot us a text/ send an airbnb message with any questions.
St. Roch is a very diverse, real New Orleans neighborhood. It's bordered by the eclectic St. Claude Avenue, lined with art galleries, bars, and thrift stores. You can usually hear music floating through the air from all directions on a sunny Saturday, and neighborhood kids play basketball at the hoop on the corner. You might even be lucky enough to catch a second line parade with a brass band, marching through the streets to celebrate the life of a loved one.
We have lots of neighbors who have lived their whole lives here, and they will certainly greet you as you pass by. We all look out for each other and the spirit of this quiet neighborhood is one of fun, relaxation, and local flavor.
- The 88 bus runs up and down St. Claude Avenue.
It's 3 blocks away and a very convenient way to traverse the city.
- Uber is now available in New Orleans!
- You can rent bikes on Frenchmen St. or across from Armstrong Park.
