The space

Private:: a cozy, casual, private room in the heart of the beautiful & charming original Faubourg Marigny. this is just THREE blocks from Frenchmen Street, with a treehouse view, French doors, a supercomfy queen mattress on a modern, platform bed, & dog kisses, should you want them. (NOTE: this room has French doors with added privacy curtains; it is private, & unlike a shotgun, no one will be walking through your room to access anything. you will share a bathroom & occasionally encounter me or other guests as you go about your day, but degree of interaction is entirely up to you, much like roommates. in a pinch, the air mattress can provide accommodations for a third guest, but please chat with me about this prior to booking.)

*Architectural Information: like many houses of this period, although this is newly renovated, a transom exists in the north wall of this room: a detailed, finished, & trimmed, open space exists near the ceiling. these are originally designed to allow air/temperatures to circulate & equalize among interior rooms, so that no one space is too hot. however, in current day New Orleans, the house is kept cooled at all times, & you also have an individual AC unit & fans in your room.

this is a recently renovated, 2nd-floor, camel-back above a historic, double-shotgun home, with all wood & stone floors, & gorgeous courtyard/tropical views below from the deck at our entrance in the rear. very clean, peaceful, & secure environment. free, residential, on-street parking, some shaded, available in front.

Guest access

fresh, clean linens, blankets, towels, a stuffed fruit bat, & seven pillows are provided; sustainable, plant-based detergents are used.

powerful house AC & softly filtered light allow for naps at any time of day, & curtains are an adjustable slidey combination of blackouts for late sleepers, &/or sheers for natural eastern light; southern window shows the tropical trees outside. your room is equipped with two windows, one with individual brand-new window AC with thermostat or simple fan; adjustable ceiling fan with light; floor fan; oscillating room heater with thermostat. an all-stainless steel percolator (with fresh, locally roasted coffee, tea bags, organic, raw local or coconut sugar, & mugs), BRITA water filter, nightstand, remote lamp with dimmable & programmable multicolored, fading lights, clock/calendar/thermometer, lounge & stadium chairs, & towel rack. seven-port, grounded ceramic surge protector, night light. cubby cubes, dresser with vanity mirror & drawers, & tailor's rack with hangers for storage. *high-speed, USB charging outlets, steam iron, hair dryer, rain ponchos & umbrellas to borrow. Netflix & HuluPlus accounts to enjoy on your downtime. large, open guest shelf in bathroom, & guest storage space in shower for personal items. *limited use of shared kitchen with new, modern, appliances, toaster oven, microwave, toaster, French press, water purifier, & refrigerator space accessible to guests; dining nook.

Interaction with guests

i live on site, & am delighted to assist with as much or as little itinerary planning as you would like. additionally, there are books of maps, sightseeing, historical, & tour information, as well as organized menus from many of our delicious local restaurants, & frequently updated lists of current events & festivals, including official Louisiana & New Orleans tour guides. issues of local publications are provided as well. lists of local music events & festivals are maintained & posted. want to try out any number of free, citywide, social bike rides & see what you may not otherwise, all from a very local perspective? i know just where to find them. ((:

Other things to note

the apartment is occupied by me & my very sweet, sociable, & very well-behaved, 7yo, medium-sized, bully-mix dog, Poochini. she sleeps with me, but is happily available for petting or snuggling, & has been a very beloved guest favorite; see the reviews for plenty of information. she is very short haired, single coated, flea-free, & enjoys frequent bathing & dental care. she has her own kennel for when i am out if she is not with me on the bike. you do not have to *love* dogs, but you should probably just be comfortable around a social, easygoing, obedient, & very lovable dog. (:

flexible hours; can accommodate all types of schedules; no curfews. last-minute reservations happily accepted whenever possible. check out my semi-private space listing as well; discounts available if both listings booked together. see you soon! ((-:

***this location has another listing as well, which may be booked by one or two credentialed airBnB guests; you will occasionally encounter them or me as you go about your day. your room is private & accessed by no one but you, & the coffee service & filtered water are set up inside for you. although, if you are in search of a super secluded, isolated, getaway consider that when booking this trip.

We had a fantastic stay with Yvonne. She was so helpful with recommendations on all things NOLA related, particularly with restaurants all around town. The location is fantastic. Quiet yet very central. Highly recommended.

I stayed at Yvonne's place in Marigny to attend a conference in the central business district, which was a 15-20 min commute via streetcar. Her place is only a 5 minute walk from Frenchman st. Yvonne is a fantastic host. She was flexible with my check-in even though my flight arrived late at night. She made me feel right at home with my own cleanly decorated room. The water pitcher was magically filled everyday and she even made cookies! Her dog is friendly, gentle, and quiet. I highly recommend this place and would stay here again.

She is beyond nice and so helpful with everything you will need to have a comfortable, fun stay while with her. She gives the best recommendations of things to do if you are unfamiliar with the area. Has many binders with everything you could possibly think of doing. Her place is very clean and comfortable, the neighborhood is really quite and my girlfriend and I felt really comfortable with staying there. Overall I rate this place and the host an 11 out of 10!! :)
