French Quarter condo description

Luxurious New Orleans condominium located in the heart of the French Quarter complete with 2 bedrooms each appointed with fine bedding and towels and 2 marble bathrooms. Master bathroom has a separate shower and clawfoot tub. This newly renovated unit is tastefully decorated and includes hardwood floors, marble baths, and stainless steel kitchen appliances with slate countertops. The condominium also features 12 1/2 foot ceilings and historic crown molding and doors throughout. Step outside and find a quaint shared courtyard, perfect for enjoying a drink with friends or relaxing after a hard day of sightseeing and shopping.

Come stay at the 'French Quarter Retreat' and enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer. Just outside your doorstep are Jackson Square, the Mississippi River, live music venues, and the fashionable boutiques of the French Quarter. Take a break from sightseeing and shopping and step into one of the quarter's corner groceries for a world famous muffuletta or experience an unforgettable creole / cajun dinner at one of the many exquisite New Orleans eateries. Interested in a change of scene? Board one of the crescent city's street cars and head for the Garden District. Here you can peruse the funky shops of Magazine Street, art galleries of Julia street, or enjoy a cup of coffee while taking in the stunning architecture of the Garden District's stately mansions.

The unit layout is as follows: The living room has a pull out queen sofa, and there is a feather bed topper for it located in unit. It is separated from the second room by a pair of large pocket doors. The second bedroom has two trundle beds (4 twins) along the outer wall which gives the appearance of a long banquet. Next is the kitchen with a dining table. The next room is the second bath and there is a door opposite it to the alley which leads to the shared courtyard. The last two rooms are the master bedroom with a king bed and the master bath/dressing area/laundry area. There are two bedrooms and two baths. It is one half of a Victorian double shotgun, so you pass through the second bedroom on your way between the living room and kitchen. There is a second exterior door in between the master bedroom and the second bedroom that one can enter and leave the unit by (through the alley and gate) without disturbing anyone in the second bedroom.


It is in the mostly residential area of the quarter and is typically quiet for the French Quarter.

                            My husband and I stayed at this home with our 2 daughters aged 14 and 20 for Spring Break. The reservation process was simple and problem free. Michelle was easy to reach and communicate with. Parking in the recommended lots was a bit of a haul and about $30 per day but we were really lucky in that we found a spot right in front of our rental and used the pass provided and had no issues. We always felt safe and everything we wanted to do really was right at our doorstep. We know a few locals and they all said our place was in a primo location. The home was lovely, just as advertised and plenty of room to spread out for all of us. The two full bathrooms were a plus! We popped the trundle beds up and covered them with egg crate pads we brought so we all ended up with big beds. We would definitely recommend to others and stay here again ourselves.

                            Six of us stayed at this property, the master bedroom is huge and really nice!!! the other room is basically the living room which can be separated in half by doors. The place is really nice and has some cooking equipment, a coffee maker, and a bit of glasses and plates and that sort of stuff. The backyard is really nice and there is a market right next door to grab things at. The neighbors are really close and if you go out drinking at night you do have to be very quiet when you get home during late night hours that was the only negative about the place. Its really a great place to stay and is right in the french quarter just a few blocks from cafe dumonde and 1 block from bourbon street.

                            This unit was the perfect for my friends and I's trip down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. The unit was very well maintained, good sized and provided all the stated amenities. My party only ended up having 5 people, so we had plenty of room, but I could see how 6 people would be able to sleep comfortably within the unit. Having 2 full bathrooms was also a plus. Although I think we only ended up using the coffee maker, the kitchen was fully furnished with all major and full-sized appliances. The location was perfect for what me and my friends wanted to do - go out in the french quarter, the marigny, and uptown, and watch the parades at canal and st.charles. All were within easy walking distance from the unit. Being one block off of bourbon st (and from La Fittes) made it a prime location for an easy walk back in the late nights and we never once felt unsafe. It worked out even better than expected. The only negative thing I can think to say was that being the last to arrive out of my party, i was relegated to sleep in the room with the front door. While this room provided very comfortable sleeping arrangements, you were able to hear everything and anything that happened outside the unit, leading to some late night wakeups and hearing some very interesting conversations. Obviously the owner has no control over this, but you might want to put the lighter sleepers in your party in one of the back rooms! All and all, I highly enjoyed my stay at this unit and look forward to staying there again when looking for a place to stay with a group of friends in NOLA. Thanks!

                            LOVED our recent stay in this house. The location is perfect (Matassa's next door is perfect for groceries and conversations with locals, and it's position to Bourbon Street is perfect for quick walks to the action and quiet nights to sleep away from the craziness. The triplex set up and shared courtyard gives you a chance to converse and meet your neighbors (Hey Jay and your 9:00 am Mimosa break!!!) and the sleeping arrangements allow for ample crashing room after a day in the Quarter. We'll definately be back! And really...why do I only have the option to mark this as a 'Girls Getaway'? I'd recommend this spot for anyone/group who want to get together and explore New Orleans.

                            This is a charming, historical property with updated kitchen and bathrooms. It is very clean and well maintained and it's in a perfect location; right in the heart of the French Quarter but far enough away from the bars so you can get some sleep at night. The corner market is literally steps from the front door and any French Quarter attraction is within walking distance. The owner and her assistant were great to work with. A couple of tips: #1-Instead of closets, there is a nice hanging rack but you need to bring your own hangers. #2-There are little dimmer toggles on the light switches in each room, so if you think the place is dark, just push those toggles up. It took us about 24 hours to figure that out! #3-Laundry facilities, ironing board & iron, and blow dryer are all available so no need to pack those items. We had a fantastic time and there was plenty of room (and mirrors) for 5 women. The owner and her assistant were great to work with. I would highly recommend this beautiful place!

                            8 of us visited NOLA for what was supposed 4 nights. It was extended to 6 nights because of hurricane Sandy and the place was absolutely perfect. We never felt like the space was too small for that number of people - even though we stayed so long. The location was great as well! 1 block from Bourbon St and about 3 blocks from where most of the partying starts. We will definitely be back - thanks for the great stay!

                            Had an incredible time at this property. We had a group of 6 people and had absolutely no isses with space. Location is perfect - a couple of blocks off of Bourbon for peace and quiet, but still close enough to enjoy. Right by Lafitte's. Easy to walk into Marigny for Frenchman Street as well. Matassa's market is right next door for great po boys and to stock up on groceries. Loved hanging out on the back patio. Beautiful place, would definitely recommend!

                            Eight of us stayed for four nights for a conference. The house was very clean and well maintained. Sleeping for eight was tight but comfortable. The location is perfect, and the owner very helpful. Everything was as described on the site, and the rental process was very easy. Thank you Kathy for all your help.

                            Great location in the heart of the French Quarters, and one block from the famous Burbon Street. I have to give high praise working with Michelle & Kathy -- they were prompt with replies to questions I had, and also stayed in close contact on the status of the property after Issac hit. We were the first renters to be at the house after the hurricane, and the area was unaffected. The location is great -- no rental car needed, and you can walk easily throughout the French Quarters, with convenient pick-up locations for Cajun Adventures for a swamp tour or city tour, as well as close to Downtown and Harrah's. We had a great time, and only express the highest remarks to Kathy and Michelle!
