Description

The space

This is a disclaimer to all of the anti-short term rental folks in New Orleans.
My partner and I own this house. We are not hoarding multi-properties to rent out short term, this is the only house we own. We are not getting rich renting out our house short term. We are doing it so we can pay the mortgage and keep our house. If you read our house rules you will see that we have a zero tolerance policy for guests partying and upsetting our neighbors. We stayed and rebuilt our home after Katrina. We are invested in our block and community. We pay taxes and taxes are collected from our guests. Our guests spend money in the neighborhood bars, shops and restaurants that we all go to and where you probably work at. Stop the hating, thank you.

Make your stay in New Orleans with friends a memorable one.
Relax in our quiet and spacious 2 story 3,200 Square Foot Historic 5 bedroom/3 bathroom House. Swim in the in-ground pool and have a cook-out on the patio's gas grill. There is plenty of on-street parking surrounding this corner property. A convenient 3-5 minute drive from the French Quarter.
Both apartments have Air Conditioning/Heating, fully equipped kitchens, a washer & dryer, FREE WI-FI Internet access, and a TV & DVD Player. The downstairs apartment
has a land line phone/voicemail system for local calls.

The upstairs and downtairs are separate apartments with their own entrance doors.
The upstairs apartment has a bathroom with a tub & shower. There are 2 bedrooms with doors that close, a dining room and a living room that doubles as a bedroom.
Both bedrooms have queen size beds, the others have futon frame sofa beds.

The downstairs apartment has 2 bathrooms. 1 bathroom has a clawfoot tub (take a long bubble bath). The other has an invigorating stand-up spa shower. There are 2 bedrooms with doors that close. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the second bedroom has a slightly smaller vintage bed.

The huge living room/dining room has two large, comfortable sofas that can sleep one each. This room was once a pharmacy storefront years ago. While it does not have a door that closes, it is set off from the rest of the apartment and has exclusive access to the second bathroom. (Our parents sleep here when they visit). Depending on the sleeping arrangements of the guests, the downstairs apartment can sleep up to 5 guests.

There is another futon frame double size bed in the hallway/gallery space. Depending on sleeping arrangements, the downstairs apartment can comfortably accomodate up to 7 guests.


Please note that we have a Pool/House Liability Waiver that we have all guests sign.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ONLY RENT THE ENTIRE 2 STORY/2 APT HOUSE. WE DO RENT THE APARTMENTS SEPARATELY ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS.

THE LISTED RENTAL PRICE IS THE PRICE TO RENT THE ENTIRE HOUSE.

If the purpose of your trip is to explore New Orleans and have a quiet, comfortable place to crash at night, this place is for you. If you're seeking luxury accommodations, we encourage you to look elsewhere.

TAKE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A HOTEL/MOTEL WITH DAILY MAID SERVICE. In order to keep our prices low and not charge a cleaning fee, GUESTS STAYING AT THE HOUSE AGREE TO BAG AND TAKE OUT ALL OF THE GARBAGE & PERISHABLE FOOD / COFFEE GROUNDS, ETC. GUESTS ALSO AGREE TO WASH THE DISHES AND DO THE LAUNDRY (AT THE VERY LEAST, START THE TOWELS & BEDSHEETS IN THE WASHER). IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, WE WILL WITHHOLD A PORTION OF YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT AS A CLEANING FEE. IF YOU HAVE AN EARLY FLIGHT, THEN CLEAN UP THE NIGHT BEFORE. IF YOU DON"T WANT TO TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE/DO YOUR OWN DISHES & LAUNDRY AND/OR CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELVES, THEN RENT SOME OTHER PLACE. DON'T STAY AT OUR HOUSE.

Hey folks, I want to clear up a couple of points that reviewers have brought up:
•The pool---the pool is not heated so the month's that you can actually use it are maybe early April to maybe mid-October. We have a pool cleaning service but yes, the pool might be a little dirty in February when no one's using it!!!
• The house is NOT within a short walking distance to the French Quarter. I've never said in any advertising that it is. Bring a vehicle with you if you can.
• Yes, there are a million rules and notes. Why? I started out with (URL HIDDEN) because I've had numerous crazy guests do things to the house that even with the most twisted imagination I could never have dreamt up. If you're a clean, responsible, respectful guest you should have no issue with the rules/notes
