This truly stunning house is centrally located in an excellent neighborhood and is truly the perfect spot for Jazz Fest, getting to the French Quarter, the Museum of Art, Cafe Degas and many other great attractions in the city. The fairgrounds are literally in the backyard and the place is a quick 5 minute drive over to the French Quarter (keep in mind, it's 5 minutes driving down Esplanade Ave. but walking there, while very enjoyable, is more like 40 minutes or so). There are three bedrooms and 2 baths here, a large kitchen (no stove though), a kitchenette area, 2 living rooms, a reading room and a 'decorative' weight room. This listing is for the entire downstairs, about 2500 square feet with a private, separate entrance from the upstairs.
The owner, Bill, in is an interior designer with his own unique and whimsical style (as the pictures might hint at), and staying here in person is really a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Bill helped me decorate my house on a major budget (see VRBO #425650) so I'm returning the favor by helping him rent his downstairs out for some additional income to help maintain this historic Arts and Crafts style home in New Orleans.
Please be aware that there is a maximum of 6 people downstairs, but in the next few months we will also start renting out the upstairs as a separate rental (4 people max upstairs), so for those with sensitive ears, please be aware you may hear some footsteps from the guests above. (I will ask upstairs guests to be mindful, but just wanted you to be aware of this before booking). If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message. Thanks for your interest!

About: Hi all! Thank you for looking at my profile. I've become something of an vacation rental veteran now with over a year's time hosting people and it's been a truly wonderful experience, one that's allowed me meet some great people and provide an excellent vacation for the many people who have stayed here. As an avid traveler myself I can share a lot of my travel experiences as well as my expertise on the great city of New Orleans. And I have lived here for over half my life, so I have plenty to share if interested. Some of my interests include reading, art, health, cooking and as mentioned, meeting new people.
Until very recently I have been career student and I've done a little of everything from interpreting and painting to landscaping and interior design. With my diverse background and all the rental activity I've seen, I decided to become a licensed realtor and have never looked back since!
This all being said, if you have any questions at all about me, about my place or about the great city I live in, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'll look forward to hearing from you.
