About this listing
How would you like to experience historic New Orleans from the eyes of a local in a gorgeous award winning home that constantly smells like cupcakes?
Then this incredible space is just for you. You will be staying above a fifth generation family owned bakery. The second floor of the building consists of several condos where the extended family of the owner lives. They range in age from 18 to 60, so all are welcome! The private apartment consists of one bedroom and a living/dining room with a convertable sleeper queen sofa. A private bath and microwave kitchen area with mini-fridge are also in the apartment. You will have a private set of keys and code access to the front door. There is a huge common area with pool table, fooshball, and great view of St. Charles Avenue outside your door. Free laundry facilities are down the hall.
5 minute walk to all areas - French Quarter, Superdome, Convention Center, Casino and numerous restaurants, museums and galleries. On street car line to Garden District, universities, Audubon Park and connecting lines to City Park and the Fairgrounds where the Jazz Fest is held.
We look very forward to having you and if you're interested I'd be happy to give you a tour of the bakery downstairs, just arrive on an empty stomach!
We ask that the common area becomes quiet around 10pm since we are bakers and early risers. Additional cost for more than two guests but can be waived for children under 18. But of course, in life, everything is negotiable.
As a fourth generation baker and owner of my family's business, I am anxiously awaiting my youngest daughter's graduation from college to join the business. I hold a BS in math from LSU and finished my education at the American Institute of Baking in 1976. I am happily single with 3 adult children who are in and out of my house all the time.
Born and raised here, I enjoy sharing my love for New Orleans with visitors or happy to let you find your own way. I spend most of my time in French Quarter and Bywater Bars, and eating in my favorite local places. The Saints are my biggest passion. New Orleans lifestyle and good friends take up the rest of my time. WHO DAT!
