About the property

Historic Home with Luxury Apartments

Tucked away in the historic Faubourg Marigny, but just minutes from the French Quarter, River House New Orleans feels like a secret hideaway. Our listing encompasses three separate apartments that are a magical mix of meticulously curated antiques, retro furnishings and contemporary amenities that lend a boho chic feel to each of the luxurious apartments in this boutique guest house.

Whether you’re a couple looking for a private getaway or a family looking to spread out in your own fully equipped apartments, this luxurious antebellum mansion is designed to delight your senses. Located on an historic, tree-lined street just three blocks from the French Quarter, River House offers luxury accommodations on par with those found in fine hotels, but in the practical and more personal setting of an ideally situated independent residence.

Tastefully designed with high quality furnishings and fine antiques, each one of River House’s three floors comprises a private, generously appointed vacation accommodation in its own right, while also offering the flexibility of being combined with one or both of the other floors for larger groups and extended stays. Completing the picture are a 500-square-foot westward-facing balcony, with original cast iron and spectacular cityscape views, and lush gardens surrounding the entire “compound” with swimming pool.

* Fully licensed by the City of New Orleans.

* Lovely private courtyards and swimming pool shared by all guests.

* Unlimited wireless high-speed Internet.

* HD flat-panel plasma TVs and digital cable TV with HBO and Showtime. Home theater/audio surround-sound systems with iPod docking stations and CD players.

* Freshly ironed, high-thread-count 100% cotton bedding, down pillows, and King-size Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress.

* Selection of coffee makers, including French press, Nespresso Le Cube One-Touch Espresso maker, and Keurig's with selection of blends for your personal daily use.

* Antique-style pedestal sink and tub, Armoire fully stocked with plush cotton towels and robes. Washer dryer in unit along with an ironing board.

* Good residential block and secure building ('service wing' is owner-occupied; ADT system) with separate central heat/AC for each floor. The location is three blocks from the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street's trendy clubs and restaurants

* Concierge, maid and floral services available.

* The River House Promise: We believe it is important to find the perfect home away from home. In designing River House, our goal was to create the vacation rental accommodations of our dreams--the kind of place we would like to stay in ourselves--a comfortable environment that not only rejuvenates the body but also inspires the mind and nourishes the soul.

Wonderful New Orleans Apt

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cute apartment. We were very impress with the size and true French Quarter style of this apartment. So happy the fridge was stock with a few waters and sodas and the pantry had a few snacks. This was a perfect distance from Frenchmen St and the French Quarter. We really felt like we lived in New Orlens and weren’t just tourist in a hotel. We will definitely stay here again.

My wife and I just returned from a one week stay at this charming house with it's beautiful decor and artwork.Staying here really allowed us to experience the true spirit and culture on New Orleans ! Everytime we returned it felt like we were coming home. The location as listed is perfect - 1 block to Frenchmen St for great food and entertain and just a short walk to the Quarter. The Garden Apartment was very spacious and incredibly well stocked with everything you would need to enjoy your stay - and then some !! The private pool / courtyard was always clean, well maintained and very nicely lit up up at night - very peaceful !! Finally what can we say about Csaba - a kind hearted and gracious host - a great Ambassador to the City of N.O....went out of his way to ensure everything was seamless ! Would definately reccomend the River House to anyone looking for an authentic New Orleans vacation - we can't wait to return !!!

The River House is an Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned back from a 6 week trip traveling through the US. We stayed at the River House June 5- 8 2011

Csaba and David, You have a wonderful place and should feel very proud of how you have set it up you have a great gift for decorating. There isn’t much more I can add, that the other reviews have already said. Your pride of ownership was evident as we found everything necessary to make this a great time. Your nice touches made this memorable. We had absolutely no "glitches" and tried to leave it as we found it. Thanks again for your hospitality and especially for making the process so simple. We will consider returning and bringing friends from Canada next time. Barbara and Mark Whistler Canada

Absolutely worth it!

  • 5 of 5

A convenient location just 3 blocks from the French Quarter and streetcar stop. River House is charming and impeccably decorated. The photos here do not do it justice. David and Csaba have anticipated every luxury one could want. They were available without interfering. We will definitely stay here again.

Outstanding Experience

  • 5 of 5

Dates of stay: January 14-17, 2011

Travelers: Two, fifty-something married couples; second & 3rd floor apartments

Value: River House would be a bargain at twice the price.

Holy cow what a wonderful place to stay. I'll get to the extraordinary physical appearances of the River House in more detail below. But first, what sets this place apart from any other is its hosts, Csaba and David, who have spared no expense in renovating and decorating the three apartments in their home. The allure of the River House goes above and beyond its luxurious physical attributes. This place is managed by a couple who love what they created and want to share it, and their city with appreciative guests. The River House is not a bed&breakfast. Each apartment is private and secure and is fully self contained with separate bedroom, kitchen, bath, and living areas. Every amenity you'd find in a five star hotel is provided. In fact, our apartment came equipped with a brew-by-the-cup coffee maker and a separate espresso machine. A variety of coffees, teas, sweeteners, muffins, crackers and other snacks were in the cupboard. Our hosts stocked the refrigerators with sodas, water, milk, juice, and even cream cheese for our happy hour. The interior decor of each apartment is unique and ranges from exquisite museum-grade antiques and local memorabilia, to zany mid-Americana kitsch. Their labor of love places an obvious decorating emphasis on their guests' comfort, enjoyment, and amusement. Our 2nd floor apartment was huge. The first and third floor apartments were of similar size or even larger. To top things off, Csaba and David welcome their guests to make use of the home's beautifully landscaped and lighted backyard garden, with fountains, a cabana, and an in-ground swimming pool. While my wife and I have probably experienced at least 1000 hotel nights world-wide, our stay at the River House was by far the most enjoyable.
