THE NEIGHBORHOOD~TREME' Treme' is the 3rd oldest neighborhood in New Orleans and is considered the oldest African American neighborhood in the United States. Treme is located directly behind (away from the Mississippi River) the French Quarter. We are four blocks from Esplanade Ave. and ten blocks from both the French Quarter and Canal Street, along which runs the historic Canal Streetcar line making easy access to Uptown, the Universities, Magazine St., the New Orleans Zoo and much more. We are within walking distance of Jackson Square which is considered the heart of the French Quarter where you will also find the world famous Cafe du Monde and the historic St. Louis Cathedral. From the house to the edge of French Quarter is about a 10-12 minute walk.
There are several bus lines within a 3-6 block walk from the house. It's a 10-12 minute walk to the edge of the French Quarter and about a 20 minute walk to Frenchmen Street.

Michael and David were amazing hosts! We felt very welcomed and comfortable. Their home is beautifully decorated with an eclectic mix of art. Each day we stayed, I would find something new to admire. David gave us many helpful tips for where to go when it came to dining as well as entertainment. We had an amazing time and are very glad we stayed with them. We will definitely be back!
I met both Michael and David on the day that I arrived to their home. I was given a map, and a list of things to do and places to eat at within that neighbourhood as well as in the French Quarter.
The room and the privacy was exactly as expected. I wasn't interrupted at all and the home is filled with wonderful pieces of art and collectibles from a love of beautiful things.
I didn't get to try the much raved about "blueberry loaf", I may have it wrong, that was available to me, as I rarely had breakfast their.
I truly enjoyed the friendliness and the cleanliness of the location and the area and I would love to stay with you both again when I do return to New Orleans.
David was great, and the space was incredible! More local art than your average art gallery. Comfy room, GREAT shower (important to me when driving long distances. Nothing worse than a low pressure shower) and blueberry bread in the fridge (subject to availability.) would definitely stay there again!
Absolutely WONDERFUL experience. The house is lovely and clean, located only one mile away from the French Quarter. I loved listening to the music playing as I walked in and out. You can really feel the New Orleans vibe in this home. The hosts are warm and welcoming, checking up on me regularly to see how things are going. This was one of my best trips!
Such an artsy home! Me and my friend Lily stayed for 2 days in this place. The house is full of art collection. The room is exactly the same as picture, neat, clean and beautiful. Michael is very nice who helped us a lot. As we are foreigners, he explained everything we need in NOLA in detail and he was extremely patient to give us directions. Breakfast is provided which is helpful because at one day we have a very early schedule. Living in this place made us feel like home. Great experience! Must 5 stars!
Dave and Michael were excellent hosts! They were warm and welcoming while letting us come and go as we pleased. For living in someone else's house, it really was a very private experience. The bedroom and bathroom were in the back area of the house, apart from other bedrooms. The area (Treme) is somewhat questionable neighborhood. While this is a gem, it is in the midst of a thriving but don't-walk-after-dark neighborhood. It's a great location as it is a 15 minute walk to the French Quarter and just a few blocks from I-10 with ample parking (for those driving). Dave and Michael thought of everything we could have needed to know in regards to the home, surrounding area, and options in New Orleans. Stay here!
I was welcomed by David to his and Michael's very beautiful home in the Treme district. He graciously gave me a detailed overview of what was available in their home, their neighborhood, their city. The house is filled with wonderful Creole/primitive/folk art - everywhere I looked there was something special. I was very comfortable in my room. Every amenity I could want was provided. I did not try the famous blueberry bread, I am sorry to say. But, it was nice to know it was there as well as coffee and other breakfast items. I felt completely comfortable walking around the Treme but I did not walk back after dark, as suggested. I highly recommend this as THE place to stay in NO.
About the Host, Michael & David
We've been Airbnb hosts since 2009. We've had the pleasure of sharing our home with many great members of the Airbnb community and, we've made hundreds of friends from all across the globe!
We're fun loving, easy going and progressive. We love art, traveling, good food and meeting great people. We enjoy everything New Orleans has to offer; Mardi Gras, French Quarter Fest, Southern Decadence (like a gay mardi gras), Secondlines, Mardi Gras Indians (we tell you more about this when you get here!)... The food and music are second to none. The local culture is rich, vibrant and unlike anything you'll find anywhere else in the United States. If you're lucky enough to spend a Wednesday night at the Candlelight Lounge with the Treme Brass Band or experience a Thursday afternoon concert with the Friends of Armstrong Park, you'll quickly understand the magic of New Orleans and Treme.
To experience the wonder that is New Orleans you need to step outside of the French Quarter see how we really live.
We look forward to hearing from you!
