Property description

Gumbo YaYa means many flavors in the pot at once -- or many people talking at once -- and everyone in your group will be talking about how perfectly matched this space, the location, and the City of New Orleans are for your group! Whether you're coming for a wedding, a family reunion, a girls' trip, a couples' getaway, or "just because", the all new Gumbo YaYa is the place to be if you're looking for a special New Orleans experience.

The space is a 2,800 sq ft, very ample apartment with five bedrooms, four baths, two full kitchens, two laundry rooms with washer/tumble dryer and and views of the French Quarter skyline. An architecturally unique space, it is part of a rehabilitated warehouse built in the early 20th century. There are many brick walls throughout the apartment and the large industrial windows overlook the rooftops of the French Quarter.

The apartment is furnished with beds enough to sleep up to 16 guests and the style is colorful and eclectic, very much like the Big Easy! It will most definitely be a unique New Orleans experience! There are six TV's in the apartment: a 32' LCD flat screens in each of the four bedrooms, a 50' LCD flatscreen in the living room, and a 55" TV in the crazy and comfy "dorm" room. Both kitchens are fully outfitted with dishes, pots and pans, coffee makers, toaster ovens, etc, and each has a built-in microwave, full-size fridge with a great ice-maker, and full-size electric stove. All four bathrooms have shower-over-tub configurations.

Many world-famous restaurants are just steps from the apartment and the entire French Quarter is just outside the gates. The Canal Street Streetcar is just a block away and will take you all over the downtown area, as well as out to City Park and connects to the St. Charles line which takes you Uptown to the Garden District.

Bourbon Street is literally steps away (75 ft) and shopping on world-famous Royal Street is only two blocks away. Frenchmen St is an easy walk at 12 blocks down river, and you'll have lots to see along the way. The Mississippi River is just six blocks away, as well as the Aquarium, the Canal Street ferry (a delightful and inexpensive way to cross the Mighty Mississippi to Old Algiers Point), Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, and much, much more. There is a cool little grocery store only six blocks away that carries many locally made foods, and corners stores abound throughout the Quarter where you can pick up liquor and mixers, snacks and toiletries. No car needed!

After the days' tours and trips around town, bar-hopping and foodie forays, you can come "home" to a spacious, comfortable, cool and quiet spot to relax, unwind, share your adventures, and get a good night's sleep so you can get up and do it all over again!
