Hey there! My name is Kerem. I spend a lot of my time writing for a local blog, driving bicycle taxis and playing in a band.
I traveled a while after graduating college, living in New York, Florida and Istanbul, and visiting Nepal, India and Thailand — but it wasn't until I visited a friend in New Orleans on a whim that I stumbled upon a home. I've lived in the Mid-city and Bywater neighborhoods, and am ecstatic about my new place on the edge of the French Quarter, overlooking the lazy live oaks of beautiful Esplanade Avenue.
I love living in New Orleans. Love it and hate it. Love to leave, then miss it desperately, then come back. Ask me on a good day and I will get very sentimental about it. In any case, sharing my experience with Airbnb'ers is turning out to be one of the coolest ways for me to continue to appreciate this damn town.
BTW, among the 21 reviews I've received there is one huge outlier that I think speaks for itself.
