About Thad and Lisa Scott

My wife and I love New Orleans, and love our home which we have worked so hard on! We have always had great guests, many of whom come back when they visit New Orleans again. I am a professional sax player and my wife Lisa works in the non-profit world doing great community programs to help make NOLA better.

Thad and Lisa Scott purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Thad and Lisa Scott chose Leonidas

We live here because we fell in love with the neighborhood as soon as we started renovating the house. Anyone who stays here understands why!

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with this house for a number of reasons. Of course the great people on our street first and foremost - but the home itself belonged to a very dear family for many, many years, and restoring it to it's present state was very heartfelt.

The house is likely more than 100 years old, with many surprise features we discovered during the restoration - like the beautiful exposed brick chimneys and unique individual mantles, and the original hardwood floors discovered under many layers of more modern flooring.

Owner's Response: Aw Lenore you are too kind! You and your party were a delight to host! We love to see guests who are new to New Orleans have an epic and memorable first trip. Especially those like you and your fellow travelers, who have such demanding careers and give so much to the community. You guys truly deserved a dreamy getaway to kick back, absorb the culture, cuisine, and nightlife - and even make new friends :) You are welcome back any time. Let us know your plans! Thad and Lisa

What a great home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great long weekend in New Orleans where we stayed at a wonderful property! Thad and Lisa were amazing hosts and left no detail undone. I won't spoil all the little surprises, but the home was modern, very clean, had some fun decorations, beds were dreamy comfortable and plenty of nice thick towels (always a plus for me!) The neighbors were super friendly and welcoming and Thad and Lisa were the best. We can't wait to return...we WILL be back! And for first time visitors to the city, you will love that this home is only 10 minutes or so away from all the action. It was so quiet at night. We've stayed on Bourbon Street before and won't do that again! We walked a couple of blocks to the Trolley line and caught the trolley to a walking tour. Super easy and inexpensive! Thanks for everything.

Perfect place for our family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. The owners greeted us upon arrival and gave us tour, explaining how they remodeled this house. The decor they picked is perfect and it had everything we needed. The neighbors are so friendly and it was great to come back to this quiet street to get away from the French Quarter. Would definitely recommend and if we are lucky enough to return to NOLA we would definitely stay here. Thanks Thad and Lisa!

Owner's Response: Julie it was a such a pleasure having your family here! I am so glad that your New Orleans visit was a success, and that our place provided the respite and comfort you were looking for. And also glad you got to chat with the neighbors a bit as well! It really is a special location :) Thank you for the kind review, and we do hope you all come back some time! Lisa and Thad

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was lovely. The property was absolutely beautiful and the location was great. Hosts were fantastic. I wish we had had more time to just sit out on the balcony and enjoy the nice porch and weather. The walls do seem to be a little thin; at times we could hear our hosts talking in the other half of the house, but that didn't bother us much and it wasn't really an often occurrence (just once or twice during our stay).

The Greater New Orleans Area offers everything from downtown casinos to wilderness parks on the North Shore, but what draws most visitors is the culture, history, and breathtaking beauty of the city.

For the cultural traveler, a few must-sees include the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the National World War II Museum, the Amistad Research Center, Historic New Orleans Collection, and New Orleans Museum of Art. All of these are 10-15 minutes from the rental home by car/Uber/taxi.

The French Quarter and all of downtown are 10-15 minutes by car/Uber/taxi, as well as the major universities, parks, zoo and aquarium. New Orleans is not a huge city and our home is quite central!
