About the property

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 2 Sleeps

A wonderful boutique apartment in an 1850's townhouse nicely located in the Lower Garden District right on famous Magazine Street and close to everything. Comprising the original library and servant's quarters of the main house, lots of historic architectural features including high ceilings, floor to ceiling bedroom windows, exposed brick, old decorative fireplaces, hardwood floors and a private gallery overlooking a courtyard.

The apartment is furnished with a wonderful mix of modern pieces and French antiques. We are the closest Historic Residential Neighborhood to the French Quarter and Convention Center and a short walk to the Streetcar, the Warehouse District and tons of restaurants and shops.

Your hosts live a half a block away and are very available to meet with you or suggest our favorite foodie recommendations or suggestions for interesting and off the beaten path things to do in our city.

Southern charm and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful neighborhood, so vibrant with everyone out walking and dogs galore. Everyone says hello and smiles. The property was set up very cute, clean and orderly. The owners were accessible for questions and very friendly. Highly recommend and we look forward to another time with them.

Great architectural home in the lower garden district, near to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for the recommendation for the plantation visit! We loved everything about NOLA and your home. As a triplet daughter of our father who was KIA in WWII, we came here to deposit the newspaper and photo archives of my father. The weather was perfect and the hospitality of Jules and his wife wonderful. Thanks so much for a memorable visit.

It was actually an apartment a couple blocks away but it was great. Clean and had everything needed.

  • 5 of 5

Jules was great and started to take care of me before I even arrived by moving me to an apartment that was a couple blocks away but away from the construction. The place was great. Easy to walk to things and a block from the bus. Jules also provided a foodie restaurant list that had awesome recommendations.

Great location off the busy streets of NOLA

  • 5 of 5

Jules was a great host! I had a package delivered before I arrived and she was kind enough to put it inside for me. After my arrival I realized that I had an iron but no ironing board - Jules picked one up immediately and also drove me to a nearby grocery store to get some additional amenities for my stay. As a local she recommended several locations for eating and activities!

The property was very clean and comfortable. I appreciated the location off as it was only a 10 minute walk to the conference center and much quieter than the busy streets but not far from coffee shops, restaurants, and bars most frequented by locals rather than tourists.

I would definitely recommend staying in any of Jules listings as she is a terrific host!
