French Quarter apartment description

Jolly Folly? Happy Foolishness! Come visit New Orleans and stay in the heart of the world-famous French Quarter! This eclectic, colorful and comfortable apartment is a great home base to explore all that New Orleans has to offer.

With an exceptionally large living room, three bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen, and washer/dryer, the 1800 sq ft apartment will sleep 8 very comfortably. Two king beds, two twins, and three daybed/trundle combinations provide a sleeping configuration that will suit everyone's needs.

The very large windows in the apartment overlook the rooftops of the Quarter. You can watch all the activity from the comfort of your sofa! Equipped with four TVs, each bedroom has a 32' wall-mounted flat screen TV, and the living room has a 42' flat screen plasma TV. Free wifi is included.

The three bedrooms are quite private and set apart from the others, and there is a full bath on either end of the apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-size stove, dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge with icemaker, and a separate pantry.

Just steps away from Bourbon St, the Jolly Folly is a short walk away from world-famous restaurants such as Arnaud's, Acme Oyster House, GW Finn's, NOLA, Antoine's, Galatoire's and much much more. There are time-honored bars close by such as the Old Absinthe House, Jean LaFitte's Blacksmith Shop, the Carousel Piano Bar and Lounge, and Johnny Whites (the only bar to stay open all the way through Hurricane Katrina), to name a few. You definitely won't go hungry ... and you won't need a cab home ... you can walk!

Other points of interest within walking distance include Jackson Square, the Cabildo, St. Louis Cathedral, the Pontalba Apartments (first apartment buildings in America), and of course, the Mighty Mississippi River.

If you want to explore more of the city and venture outside of the Quarter, take the streetcar to City Park, the Garden District, New Orleans' famous above-ground cemeteries and the Audubon Zoo.

So come on down to the French Quarter in old New Orleans and discover all the unique charms and delights this magical place has to offer. You'll leave with memories galore and, I suspect, a desire to return!

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Located in the heart of the French Quarter, the restaurants and bars abound right outside your door. Steps from Bourbon St, 7 blocks from Jackson Square, 12 blocks from the Marigny, 4 blocks from Treme, one block from Canal St and the streetcar ... the location doesn't get any better than this if you're coming to get a taste of New Orleans.

                  And just a streetcar ride away is the zoo, the Garden District, City Park, New Orleans' famous cemeteries, Tulane University, and dozens of excellent restaurants. Even riding the streetcar is a must-do in NOLA!
