- Carrollton is the section of New Orleans that is at the far end of Uptown from the French Quarter, between the Audubon & University District of New Orleans and Jefferson Parish. It is often considered part of Uptown, but it has its own history and traditions (including being a separate city in the 19th century), so it will be treated on its own here. The high ground of the 'Carrollton Spur' was fortunately above the great flood which devastated much of the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, leaving this charming neighborhood intact. Oak Street has restaurants, shops, cafes, bars, and live music venues. It is at the far end of the St. Charles Streetcar line (the green cars) whose other end is on Canal Street in the Central Business District. Carrollton is near Tulane and Loyola Universities and many students and professors live here and patronize the local businesses. It is a mixed residential/commercial neighborhood, with urban advantages where the trees are taller than most of the buildings. Carrollton has many small business and good restaurants. The food and shopping make it an attractive place for visitors to spend half a day in between streetcar tours. The streetcar runs through Carrollton on Saint Charles, then turns on to Carrollton Avenue at a place known as The Riverbend. You see a cluster of restaurants, shops and businesses here. There are more a block up, beyond the one bit of late 20th century architecture visible, the mini-strip mall with the Walgreens, behind which you'll find a small park surrounded by Victorian houses made into specialty shops and restaurants. The two other parts of Carrollton the visitor should know about are Maple Street, which parallels St. Charles, intersecting with Carrollton just inland from the Riverbend, with row of businesses running a pleasant 6 blocks down to Cherokee. The other business street is Oak Street, 4 blocks further inland (away from the river and St. Charles) than Maple extending on the opposite side of Carrollton Avenue. Long less upscale than Maple, in recent years many trendy shops and restaurants have opened on Oak as well. From the French Quarter, Central Business District, or Uptown, take the St. Charles streetcar, and for the most central location get off at the Riverbend or Maple Street stop. Almost everything mentioned here will be within a maximum of 6 blocks walk in this pedestrian friendly neighborhood. Walk around enjoying the Victorian residential architecture and plentiful flowering plants, sip coffee or eat a meal at an outdoor table on Carrollton Avenue while the old streetcars rumble by. The Maple Leaf Bar is a popular live music venue Anthony Bean Community Theater 1333 S. Carrollton Ave Check website for show schedule. Old Carrollton City Hall. The neoclassical building on Carrollton between Maple an Hampson is now a school. John Kennedy Toole's House: Fans of the novel 'A Confederacy of Dunces' can take a walk by the Pulitzer Prize winning author's former home on Hampson at the downtown river corner of Adams. There's a historic marker out front. Look from the sidewalk; it's still a private home. Palmer Park, at Carrollton & Claiborne Avenues and the end of the streetcar line. The last Saturday of each month it hosts the Arts Market of New Orleans  from 10a to 4p, with tents of arts and crafts vendors, refreshments, and free live music. Occasionally hosts other events and concerts. Po-Boy Festival, Big one day festival each November; Oak Street and the surrounding area is lined with food vendors, featuring great po-boy sandwiches and other local treats. Also free live bands and other special events. Live music Carrollton Station, 8140 Willow Street, at Dublin a block up from Carrollton Maple Leaf Bar, 8316 Oak, tel. 866-9359 : Contemporary New Orleans brass bands like Rebirth, (who play here every Tuesday night when they are not traveling); also R&B, Cajun, Zydeco, and more at this funky legendary local music venue -- includes the college crowd when school is in; dancing; late-night shows; casual; funky. (Despite the name, remember it's on Oak Street, 3 blocks up from Carrollton, not Maple). Eat Carrollton has some of New Orleans' finest restaurants; for the number and variety within a short walk of each other it is rivaled only by the French Quarter. Budget Restaurant on Maple Street Babylon Cafe, 7724 Maple Street. Middle Eastern, great value and excellent home-made bread Camelia Grill 626 S. Carrollton just off St. Charles: A favorite with locals and visitors, it's an old style diner done New Orleans style. When there's a line it moves fast, but if it's dauntingly out the door remember that Carrollton has lots of other good eats within a short walk. Some think its best caught off hours and avoided during lunch rush and during Mardi Gras, when many people who don't seem to know anywhere else in town to eat....moreless

This was by far, the absolute best VRBO experience I have ever had! We were looking for something reasonably priced that we could just sleep and shower near the French Quarter. This is a homey little apartment in the backyard of a Historical home. It is perfect for a couple or a family with 2 kids. My kids are 14 & 8 and they slept comfortably on the futon in the living room. It was walking distance to the streetcar. We only used our own car when we went across the river to visit family. The property is gated and we felt perfectly safe leaving our car there when we were gone. The property itself was good. It is not ritzy, but it has been remodeled and it's more than comfortable. I think that it is perfect for the vibe of the area. The property manager, Misty, is around to answer questions and help you with any needs you might have. The greatest experience from this rental was the hospitality. Misty called us while we were driving down from the North to make sure that we were safe and answer any questions. She even stayed up to help us into the property when we arrived in the middle of the night. While we were there she checked with us to make sure we had everything and gave lots of great tips for visiting the city. She and the property manager were helpful and present, but not overbearing. They were there as needed, without "bugging" us. They even left special touches in the apartment for us and the kids. Bottom line is you can't go wrong with this rental and I will recommend it to anyone visiting the New Orleans area.

Hidden Gem in One of the Best Areas of New Orleans!
Hidden Gem in One of the Best Areas of New Orleans!
Let me start off by saying that my wife and I were looking for a home or condo to stay in while in New Orleans for an 8 day vacation. We have a two year old and a hotel room without the simple conveniences like a kitchen and a washer and dryer would have been less than ideal. We were discouraged in our initial search, as we were on a fairly strict budget and most of the vacation rentals (even the cheapest ones) were out of our desired budget. Then we came across this property. The pictures looked great, the location was ideal, and the price seemed too good to be true. Despite our slight apprehension committing to a place that seemed too good to be true, we booked this place for all 8 days. Upon arriving, we were very pleasantly surprised. We parked in our own private, gated parking spot, walked through a small gate, across a charming and well-kept private courtyard and into a cozy guest house totally private and separate from the main home. While this place was probably only 500 (only an estimation) total square feet, it seemed extremely roomy, even for a family of three. It would be a ton of room for one or two people and was perfect for a couple with a young child. The furnishings were nice, it had hardwood and tile floors, a queen size bed that was super comfortable, and a futon that could have accommodated another adult. The flat screen TV with DVD collection and free wifi Internet were invaluable, but the part that really made us feel welcome was that Sandra and Misty had stocked the fridge with eggs, sodas, bottle water, and beer/malt beverages, there was a bottle of wine and two wine glasses sitting out, and they had gone shopping and bought our son a pile of new toys. This was way above and beyond and was a nice touch! Misty was great with checking in on us via text messages and Sandra (the owner who lived in the main house) have us privacy throughout our stay. On top of all of this, termites had swarmed the entire city of New Orleans (this happens every year at this time of year in Nola) and a few had gotten into the rental. This was expected and nothing that Misty and Sandra could have prevented, but gave us our last night's stay free of charge "for our inconvenience". Needless to say, we were blown away. When we had reached our last day, Misty texted to make sure we were happy and followed up a little later to personally thank us. Book this rental ASAP before the secret gets out on how incredible this rental is! We are customers for life

I rented this cottage for a long weekend with my best friend to celebrate my 30th birthday. The property manager made sure that I had everything I needed, both before and during our stay. The cottage itself is quaint and comfy. There are plenty of little shops and restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood that you could spend a whole day wandering around, but it's close enough to the French Quarter to not feel like you're missing out on anything. Can't wait to bring my husband back for a romantic getaway!!

Owner response: Laura! We would love to have y'all back anytime. Keep in touch. Thank you for your review. Yes we agree the neighborhood offers so very much. The Owner has come to treasure the shops, art and food within walking distance. We have also noticed that tenants appreciate that the French Quarter is just far away for a good night's sleep. We are happy you were happy and hope your birthday was a blast! Cya next time!!
Great NOLA home base

A great apartment! Close to wonderful restaurants and a budding shopping area. The street car wasn't working during our stay, but it was so easy to catch a bus. We were visiting Tulane and it was easy to walk there. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed - there were even a few extras that made the stay better than expected (water, fruit, and other drinks!). Misty was helpful and available for every question and even after we stayed there was kind enough to mail me a small item I forgot. I would definitely stay here again.

She always wishes for the guests to have a pleasant stay. Thank you for your time and consideration in writing this review and we hope to see y'all back soon. Keep in touch.
Perfect Home Away from Home !!

What's not to love? This charming little cottage was the perfect place for us in New Orleans. Quaint, well apportioned, clean and thoughtfully laid out, it was the perfect foil for the craziness that was the Super Bowl. It's in a beautiful part of town that has great shops & restaurants. Access to the street car line is right across the street and will take you all the way to the French Quarter for $1.25. The trip is well worth it and takes you past beautiful homes and landmarks like Tulane University & through the Garden District. The cottage was very safe and secure and had all the comforts of home: washer & dryer, full fridge & freezer, coffee maker (woo hoo!) and comfy bed and couch. The courtyard was lovely for enjoying our morning coffee. The owners provided great communication but also gave us our privacy. We can't wait to go back to New Orleans and stay here again!
