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.

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. (:

***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.
