About Mark B.
My name is Lindsey and I was born and raised in nearby town called Houma Louisiana where they say 'Houma is where the heart it is.' The truth is though , New Orleans has always had my heart. This city puts a bit of a spell on you and for some, it makes leaving impossible. There is a certain romance to here, whether it is the beautiful french architecture, the narrow french quarter streets, or the carriage rides through Jackson square. It's no wonder that this is the city where I fell in love with my husband and we have been tourists in our town ever since. When we aren't sailing or travelling, we love having stay-cations right in our own backyard. Its very easy to fill a care-free day with beignets, bloody marys, streetcar rides and wandering the quartering with no plan except to live in the moment.
Mark B. purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Mark B. chose Milan
We began looking for our first home in the spring of 2013. It was our first purchase but we knew we want wanted to go big or go home. We wanted a multi-unit property and we were not afraid to get our hands dirty. Maybe we had watched too much HGTV or we are just gluttons for punishment but knew we just had to do a renovation to an older house. When we found this house we knew it was the one for us. The night we saw the listing we went over to the property and tried to scope it out in the dark because we were so excited. The neighbors must have thought we were crazy because i was on Marks shoulders trying to get a peek inside because we didnt want to wait for a showing. Things worked out and we got the house. 6 very long and expensive months of hard and no social life left us with the house we had started out for. We have 3 units on the property. Our unit is upstairs and we have 2 units downstairs. One of which is long term tenants and the other is for fun loving traveler like yourselves.
What makes this Apartment unique
We have loved so many things about our home but one things we could not part with was the original wood floors. Our floor were even able to make it through Katrina mostly undamaged. The wood itself is 400 year old old growth pine. Completely irreplaceable as these forests no longer exist. We also enjoy the recently updated bathroom where can enjoy a full walk in tile shower with a river rock massaging floor.

Stylish and Adorable Home
What a funky, cute place! The artwork was so representative of the city and we were blown away by the time and energy that went into making this place a home for everyone who came to visit. Lots of extra bedding and towels, popcorn and snacks, and all kinds of cupboard necessities. It was as if we were visiting a relatives house that was totally stocked with everything one would need. We were also pleasantly surprised at how big the apartment was- my husband and I felt like we could live there! The city of New Orleans captured our heart and it was so wonderful after a day of sipping chicory coffee, eating food like red beans and rice, being enchanted by the street bands and local artist to come home put our feet up and watch a movie and talk about the adventures of the day. Thank you for making our trip so special by providing above and beyond hospitality.
Cute, Clean, Spacious, and Well-decorated
The place is exactly how it looks in the pictures. It was very nicely decorated, clean, comfortable, and had a lot of room. However, the area the vacation rental is in is a ways off the beaten path. Though only 4 miles from downtown, expect about a 20 minute drive. When we first arrived the road was flooded and we had to wait awhile for the water to recede (obviously not the owners fault) but fortunately we had other plans to occupy us. It was a very nice place, but the next time I go to New Orleans I would stay downtown.
Home away from home
We had a great time enjoying our anniversary here! Great location and quiet neighborhood. Close to Magazine St and street cars. Home has great attention to details. Love the decor. Would love to stay again for a mini vacay in the future!
Homey place to stay near Tulane University
This lower half of a duplex was a perfect staging point for me as I helped my daughter get settled in her college dorm. I was nearby when she needed me, and when she didn't, I enjoyed walking around the neighborhood with access to great restaurants and coffee houses. The home itself was clean, well decorated, and cozy. The bed was more comfortable than my own - it was hard to leave!
We had an amazing time staying here. Super cute place and they were very accommodating. Would definitely recommend staying here.
This home was definitely everything it said it was. Thank you
