About the property

*Summer Specials* Charming 1 Bdrm, close to Streetcar and Magazine St. fun

Stay like a local!! This Garden District gem is located on a quiet neighborhood street just steps away from the St. Charles original streetcar line and around the corner from the infamous Commander's Palace Restaurant. This is a beautiful, safe area of the Garden District, which is known for its grand, beautiful historic homes and has one of the oldest and most filmed New Orleans cemeteries. It is a walkable neighborhood in close proximity to Magazine Street which is great for antique and boutique shopping, visiting restaurants, coffee shops and hangouts. Several walking tours are offered in the area and being that it is in the middle of the city, a short Uber ride or streetcar ride will take you downtown near the French Quarter or Mid City or Uptown. This location is a "best kept secret" in the Garden District, as it is located on a quiet one block street between St. Charles Avenue and Prytania. The Garden District Security Patrol patrols the neighborhood and the street for added security in this historic neighborhood.

This is a quaint unit fully updated and situated on the bottom story of a New Orleans style upstairs/downstairs double built in the early 1900's with original hardwood floors, high ceilings, ceiling fans, private bedroom, living room w/ sofa bed, full bathroom with plenty of towels and washcloths, fully stocked kitchen, half bath, washer and dryer inside, outside front and back porches with a fenced in backyard and covered patio. There is a queen sized bed in the private bedroom, a sofa bed in the living room and a single daybed in a side nook just outside the private bedroom. There is a television and WiFi in the unit as well as lots of light.

Walking the neighborhood and streetcar are the most enjoyable modes of transportation, however, you may also rent a bike to take advantage of the many bike lanes New Orleans has to offer. Because this home is located in the middle of the city, you can easily get to any other part of the city in just a few minutes.

Just some things to note, this is a bottom story unit and being that this is a new listing, we are currently in the process of changing most of the furniture. It will be nice and comfortably furnished. I look forward to answering any questions or comments you may have, and I look forward to the opportunity to host you in our vacation home.

Perfect location from which to explore in any direction!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly as described. Quaint with character. Clean, quiet, felt very safe in neighborhood, even coming home late at night. My sister and I were there for family event but also got to see alot in our 5 days. Trolley was convenient, bakery around corner, store down street. Great to just walk in neighborhood if you wanted. Parade went by on St. Charles while we were there which was fun. We enjoyed Magazine St after the hustle/bustle of French Qtr. Would definitely stay here again!
