The open concept floor plan and sunny afternoon exposure give it a welcoming light-filled quality. In typical New Orleans style, The Happiness Haven is made for entertaining and spending quality time with family and friends. There is the large open kitchen/living room space (with 55" flat screen TV) where you can relax, make meals together, and enjoy each others' company, as well as the lovely courtyard just outside the side entrance door (Note: The courtyard is a shared space). The dual-master bedroom suites both have their own private baths. The Murphy bed, 40" flat screen TV, and desk with printer make the 3rd bedroom a space to fulfill many needs. It may be used as a bedroom (which shares a bath with the 2nd Master Bedroom), reading/exercise/meditation room, dedicated office, or secondary TV room when the living room is otherwise occupied or media tastes diverge. In short, The Happiness Haven offers a lot of flexibility all in a beautiful setting that is designed for total comfort and togetherness with plenty of room for everyone to find their very own happy place.The main house was renovated in 2014 and this 1st floor in-law apartment was just completed in the spring of 2017. The house is in the city's historic landmark district.
Free parking waiting for 1-3 guest cars just steps from your front door!
Note: This is a 1st floor apartment with low ceilings. Surprisingly, the overall brightness of the space and open floor plan make the ceiling height a subtle aspect of the Haven's overall coziness.
The 7th Ward is a historic Creole New Orleans' neighborhood. Many of the rich traditions of New Orleans' culture were born in the 7th Ward. Our home was owned by one of the most prominent Creole families in the city making it part of a long history of family and community of which we feel honored to take part. This area of the 7th Ward is known as Esplanade Ridge because of its proximity to Esplanade Ave and its ridge elevation. It is truly an urban neighborhood - a stone's throw to all the happenings but still with a quiet though friendly local community feel. New Orleans continues to change quickly right before our eyes so our neighborhood is quite mixed with families who have been here for generations and many newcomers to the city. This is also a popular neighborhood for short-term rentals so you will often see other visitors heading your way.
Walk 10 blocks (20 minutes) or take a $6-$8 Uber (approx.) to get to the French Quarter or Frenchmen St. Or, if it is Jazz Fest time, walk, bike, Uber/taxi 12 blocks in the opposite direction to get to the Fair Grounds. Walk three blocks to the picturesque Esplanade Ave. and take the bus or Uber/Lyft to City Park where you can check out the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Sculpture Garden, the Botanical Garden, and so much more!
