                                  Faubourg Marigny is a wonderful eclectic historical neighborhood located only 10 blks from the French Quarter. This area is set up to be able to walk or ride a bike to many restaurants, grocery, and bars. It has a lovely European feel to it. Yoga studio is 2 blks away, fun vintage shops a few blks away......Frenchman St. is my favorite area to listen to live music- 8 blks away.

                                  Other Activities: French Quarter shopping, cemetery tour, swamp tour, plantation tour

                                  About: I have 12 properties that are vacation rental- the others are in Austin and Wimberley TX. I am a licensed Realtor, and love this business. I remodel older homes for a living--restoring beautiful old homes is very important to me, and there are plenty here in New Orleans.

                                  LOCATION LOCATION, and its simply gorgeous.....As soon as I walked in, I said, oh yeah, I'm getting this property!!!
