About this listing

The Turquesa Room is one of three private guest rooms available at The Casa Blanca, which is a vibrant, well-maintained and non-smoking home. Tranquility abounds in this peaceful space appointed with a king-sized bed, ample wardrobe storage, a reclining chair and ottoman, several large windows and wonderfully high ceilings. The Turquesa Room has temperature control devices (a ceiling fan, AC unit and electric heater) and a door lock for guests' comfort. (Bikes are available upon request)
In every corner of The Casa Blanca, guests are greeted by a delightful kaleidoscope of color, art and whimsy. Individuals, couples and groups (of 6 to 8 people) are invited to experience a festive and communal* space featuring: comfortable guest rooms, one full bathroom and one half bath, a spacious living room, full kitchen, dining nook and a rustic, outdoor patio. (*Excluding bedrooms, all areas of the property are shared among occupants.)
When you are not relaxing in your peaceful quarters or enjoying a proper New Orleans adventure, feel free to watch movies, play video games or chat with other guests in the shared lounging areas. The property’s bright and slightly tilted kitchen is fully equipped with the appliances and supplies needed to create or reheat a tasty meal, which can be enjoyed inside or on the secluded, backyard patio.
Close to Claiborne and Broad Streets, The Casa Blanca is located next door to The Monte Cristo in a revitalized community that hosts a second-line jazz parade nearly every Sunday afternoon. (See schedule below.)

We met Jay briefly when checking in, and he was helpful both then and when we texted him with questions. Room was as described, clean and spacious with in-window A/C that was a bit loud but very effective. Location was safe in a cool neighborhood, a bit of a drive from French Quarter ($10 minimum with Uber but since it's newish to NOLA, we encountered a lot of surge pricing). There's a keycode lock for the house as well as a key lock for the bedroom, so very secure.
Jay was awesome! He was very informative and recommended us to go the to the very best places in New Orleans.
The room was huge with comfortable bed, air conditioning and we had a great time
It was my first time using airbnb and I had a good experience. Jay was a great host to my friend and I. He was welcoming and offered many suggestions on tourist places and festivals to check out. He also provided recommendations on the best restaurants to eat at. The description of the place was accurate. The room provided enough stay for two people. The bed was extremely comfortable and pleasant to sleep in after a long day. The living room was enjoyable and comfortable to hang out in. The only negative comment I have is with respect to the bathroom; it was dirty and needed deep cleaning. The neighborhood was great; it felt like a safe area and was relatively close to the bus stop. Plus it was close to shops and restaurants. I would stay again.
-A bargain room in a safe New Orleans neighborhood.
-Jay was friendly and informative.
-Close to the Garden District, Lafayette Cemetery #1 and 2 and street car stations.
-Nicely and colorfully decorated.
-Rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were clean.
-Coffee and coffee maker and tea were available as well as full fridge.
-If you're going to spend the majority of your time in the French Quarter, this may be a little bit far out of your way.
-Some of the carpeting was pretty ragged, there were some busted window screens and the window A/C was ineffective and was missing the temperature adjustment dial.
We had an awesome stay at Jay's place. He welcomed us when we arrived and was always available if we had any questions or needed recommendations. The room is perfect for two people and also the rest of the appartment is nice to hang out.
Really good experience, I would stay there again.
Listing was accurate and stay was comfortable. ..very close to the downtown area....I liked it..

Ok, about me I'm a proud born & raised New Orleanian who loves meeting new people, exchanging interesting stories, cheering on the Saints (Who Dat?), and simply having a good time. I believe there is humor in nearly all we do. I'm well traveled,outgoing and friendly really look at my pics lol!I have walked the stairs of the Acropolis in Athens; tasted a grain of sand at the base of the Pyramids on the Gaza Strip; tossed a U.S penny off the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris; and partied all night in Bangkok like a hip-hop mogul with $80. I have gotten lost in Rome; hitchhiked a ride to Vatican City; eaten coca leaves and enjoyed the beer in Bogota; and had jerk chicken and Red Stripe in Montego Bay. I have sailed the canals of Amsterdam; partied in Cancun and rode scooters & snorkled in Cozumel and almost got hustled by a cabbie in San Jose, CR. Lastly, I survived Mardi Gras in Nawlins w/ no hangover...Amazing! As a Airbnb host, I look forward to extending "The Big Easy" experience to my guests. Stay at The Monte Cristo or The Casa Blanca (Located directly next door). Check them out I might just have the space for you.
