This vacation rental has 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 upstairs and a fantastic master suite downstairs. There are two full bathrooms as well as a cozy powder room beneath the stairs. This part of the home has approximately 2100 square feet, fully appointed kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and a large capacity washer and dryer. The star of this home though is the 1800 square foot tropical oasis in the city that is the back yard with its sparkling heated salt water pool (pool can be heated up to 100 degrees in the winter time upon request for a small additional cost) and spa, tiki bar, state of the art outdoor entertainment system with several all weather televisions that can be viewed from any angle of the pool or yard. There is a BBQ with a dedicated gas line available to use as well. This backyard is completely private to the vacation rental guest! The owner's bedroom efficiency is private and separated from the vacation home rental.
You will have complete and private access to the home and backyard with the exception of a few locked closets and a private efficiency where I stay when my home is rented. I enter the efficiency from a different location then the main house so you will probably never see me unless you need help. :-) The main house and backyard is all yours and completely private. The pool pump and heater will also be locked, but someone will be available to heat the pool prior to your arrival for an additional cost. The front door and alarm will have a punch code access unique to your group and changed for every guest, so no keys are required! Kitchen is fully stocked with cookware and utensils (I love to cook myself, so it's got all the gadgets you need).
I will be available to answer any questions that you have or in case you need anything. I can be reached pretty quickly via text or a phone call, (504-782-4279).
The Uptown and Magazine Street areas are some of the most popular and historic neighborhoods in the city. It's close proximity (1 block away), from the Garden District, the wealthiest part of the city and home to celebrities such as Beyonce, Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, and Archie Manning, make it a fantastic jumping off point to explore the city. Less than a block away is bustling Magazine street where you can find some of the best and most famous restaurants, bars, and shops in the city. There is a supermarket and drug store 1 block away, as well as famous bars and restaurants such as The Bulldog, Balcony Bar, Rum House, Ignatius, Dat Dog, Slim Goodie's, Mahoney's Po-Boys, and Commander's Palace all within easy walking distance.

Navigating this city from here is very easy and convenient with or without a car. There are a ton of things to do and see within easy walking distance of the house including Magazine Street, The Garden District, and The historic Lafayette Cemetery No 1. The Magazine street bus line which goes from the French Quarter all the way up past Audubon Park and the Zoo is just a block away. About 5 blocks away is the historic and iconic St Charles Street Car line. If you prefer, Uber is usually less than a $10 ride to the French Quarter, and cabs can be gotten fairly easily on Magazine street as well. There is usually plenty of street parking near the house if you prefer to drive.
Other things to note
There is plenty of street parking usually, except for a few special events that are held from time to time in the area. I've never had to park more than a block away and can almost always find a spot right on my street. This is a popular residential as well as shopping and going out area that is one of the safest in the city, but like all big metropolitan areas, use some common sense. Keep your vehicle locked and valuables out of site, lock the door when you leave, etc.
