Beautiful, fun, & funky 200-year-old historic home in the heart of downtown. Soaring ceilings, gorgeous architecture. 4 blocks to the French Quarter, half a mile to frenchmen and the river, super close to fun bars, food, coffee, and public transport.
Please be courteous to my neighbors and respectful of my home. Keep the noise inside the house and the partying in the French Quarter. Additionally, This is my house, it is not a hotel. If you want a sterile environment devoid of any traces of other people having ever been there, book a hotel. If you want to stay in my house, which has a few cracks in the plaster and has books on the shelf, this is the place for you.
The house is a traditional creole cottage with a unique "double shotgun" victorian facade with side gallery in the rear. The rooms flow one into the other in a straight line, and the 12 ft ceilings and transoms above each door are charming vestiges of how these houses were designed to keep cool in the summer before the advent of central air. These homes really only exist in New Orleans anymore. This neighborhood is one of the most vibrant in town, a few blocks from the French Quarter and even closer to Louis Armstrong park, where there's always a neighborhood or cultural event happening. Come stay with us to get a true New Orleans experience.
Guests will enjoy tv and wi-fi, a full private kitchen and three bathrooms, Porch and backyard are shared spaces.
The homeowner and manager lives next door, and has an assistant who lives 4 blocks away. We will always be happy to suggest a destination, or answer any questions. We are thirtysomething, easygoing, and fun yet responsible people. Have as little interaction with us as you like, or hit us up for whatever. We're happy to oblige.
The Treme is a fantastically bright, safe, beautifully historical neighborhood! Lots of families, lots of community, and gorgeous old homes that you won't see anywhere else in the world.
