Convenient to Fairgrounds, City Park & Lake; less than 15 min. to Dome & French Quarter. Quiet safe neighborhood with cafes, bakery, pizza, grocery, hair salon. On-street parking; easy walk to 2 buslines. Hosts are professional musician & NOLA native. We follow CDC on sanitizing.

The space
The house has 5 steps (one on sidewalk, 4 up to the front porch) to front door. No stairs inside; not suitable for wheelchairs.

Guest bedroom is located in a separate wing from main living area and away from Master Suite. Has its own large lighted closet with hangers, an expandable Ikea table & 2 chairs, plus a small flatscreen color TV with Roku. Newly upgraded with Gigabit Internet.

To use the TV: Use the TV remote to turn on the screen and choose a streaming service to watch. Use the Roku remote to choose what to watch. Please alert the hosts if there's any glitch.

Large front window brings in lots of light; recently updated with lined drapes to control the light as desired. Walls are lined with bookcases. Floor has large area rug over bamboo flooring. In addition to the central system, the room has ceiling fan for summer & space heater & lots of blankets for cold months.

Private guest bath with lots of towels and personal care toiletries plus a hair dryer solely for guest use during stay.

Guest access
Guests have exclusive use of the guest bath down the short hall during their stay.

Shared access to kitchen, if desired. However: Other than the breakfast we provide, we expect that guests might be reheating leftovers or other short usages of the kitchen -- NOT cooking all their meals from scratch in our kitchen. Any use of the kitchen other than breakfast must be scheduled with the hosts. Any cups, utensils, plates, etc. used by guests should be washed by guests using dish soap or loaded in dishwasher for sanitizing.

Guests also welcome to sit on front porch as weather permits. The porch is the only space where smoking is permitted. Please be courteous in disposing of butts.

Use of laundry room is allowed for fee of $5 per load. Please schedule around the hosts' use of the laundry and ask for instructions before using.

Other things to note
We have an elderly Corgi-Rottweiler mix (!) dog who is sweet and friendly and never barks. We would entertain the idea of guests bringing another dog under certain circumstances (well-behaved, not a barker, crate-trained, etc.).

Husband being a professional musician, he practices trumpet during the day, never at night. Most guests who hear it enjoy it.

Milneburg, New Orleans, Louisiana

Gentilly Terrace was developed in the 1910-20s in the then-fashionable "California mission" style & is a coherent quiet safe historic neighborhood with great diversity & a parklike feel. Neighbors know & look out for each other. Great neighborhood restaurants, a small grocery store, & a gas station within short distance of our house. Easy access to 2 buslines that can bring guests directly to Downtown & the French Quarter. About a mile from the shore of Lake Pontchartrain.
