...A small 720 square foot house (affectionately known as "The Sugar Shack" and perfect in its imperfection) in the historic Irish Channel. One block from best of Magazine Street -- restaurants and shops, grocery, bus line. It's really a great location, Includes full size futon, day bed and trundle mattress, small yard. Amenities include kitchen, washer/dryer, wireless access and cable tv. There's also a piano and a Nespresso espresso machine.
I've stayed at this place on two separate trips with totally different groups and everyone loved it. It's very unique and has a lot of nostalgic charm in terms of decor. The beds are comfortable, the internet works, and there's always nespresso.
My favorite part about this place is the location. Tons of parking by the house. 2 blocks from great shopping and amazing food on Magazine St. There's a drugstore and bus stop just a few blocks away also. The sugar shack is a great place to stay if you want to enjoy NOLA like a local.
We had such a good time staying at Jon's place. It was a perfect home base for our group of four. The location was excellent - we always felt safe and the proximity to Magazine St. was great. Parking was never a problem and the outdoor patio area was gorgeous. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Jon very graciously hosted my friends and I after an extreme last minute request! He was very communicative and friendly, and replied quickly. Thank you again Jon!
It's a really nice and light-full house, in a fancy district.
Its style is typical from New Orleans and the owner is very freindly
Jon's house was great!!! So cute and perfect, and in a great neighborhood, 1 block from shops and restaurants. Couldn't have been better.
What a great neighbourhood, the Sugar Shack is sweet and funky and Jon is a great host, a wonderful story teller and if you are in to clowns, music, and/or elephants then you will be in your true element here! Close to Tipatina's, and a great little restaurant Apolline
