New Orleans is known for many amazing festivals and events. We are steps away from the Race Track where Jazz fest takes place. We are also a few blocks from City Park where Hogs for a Cause and Voodoo Fest are. Just a stroll down the street are some great little neighborhood gems like Liuzza' s By the Track, Swirl, and a few other great places. This area is truly special where you could have the true New Orleans experience!
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I have lived in a lot of places and I can honestly say that New Orleans is unlike any other city. It's a special place. My husband was raised in New Orleans and for most of our adult lives we have kept a second home here. We recently decided to make New Orleans our full-time home because we wanted to be part of the creative community here. We own a small film company 'Nom De Guerre Films' and do Southern inspired projects. We live in the main house of the estate and I do believe that since we have so much experience traveling, we know exactly how to make any traveler feel comfortable. We are available for questions, recommendations, and love sharing tips on this amazing city!
Why the Owner Chose Esplanade Ridge: When we decided to make New Orleans our full-time home, we knew we wanted to have a property that really embodies the South, that captures that Southern charm... When we came upon this property, it was love at first site. It was the residence of the infamous Madame of Storyville Jose Arlington. We we felt like we were owning a piece of history.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Staying on the estate of the notorious Storyville Madame Josie Arlington ... Where else can you do that?
We like luxury, so we want to provide that for you too. Upon check-in you will receive complimentary items to make your stay seamless: shampoo, conditioner, soap, laundry supplies, toilet paper, bottled water, espresso, and wine.
The location cannot be beat. The mansion is just steps from Jazz fest. You will enjoy every moment of the festival without a moment spent in traffic. You can come and go from the festival as you wish. We can provide a parking pass upon request.
The flat is also close to many charming restaurants in the area...really just steps away. Here are some of my favorites:
-Cafe Degas was rated in the top 15 New Orleans restaurants by the Travel Channel.
-Liuzza's By the Track is called 'legendary' by Zagat. My favorite there is gumbo or red beans and rice.
-Lola's was quoted to have 'Superb' paella by Zagat and I agree! It's absolutely delicious.
-Swirl Wine Bar and Market has nothing but wonderful reviews on UrbanSpoon. I love to walk over in the evening and get a glass wine. The owner finds the most amazing wines from small vineyards around the world.
-Morning Call in City Park has the best beignets and Cafe Au Lait has reviews on Yelp saying it tops Cafe Du Mond. I love to walk over and start my day with a steaming hot beignet in the park.
There are many interesting things to do nearby. One of the famous cemeteries is just up the street. You can also hire a pedicab to take you along Esplanade to the exquisite French Quarter that's very close.
