Pied-à-terre, french for "foot on the ground", is a small apartment/2nd home/getaway space in the city.
Recent renovation of an 1874 creole house in the heart of the Treme neighborhood. A less than 10 minute walk to the French Quarter (northern boundary of Rampart St), 15 minute walk to Bourbon St in one direction and Frenchman St in another. Across the street from Louis Armstrong Park and Mahaila Jackson Theater! Please read the ENTIRE listing description before booking/inquiring!
There is central AC/heat, WIFI and basic cable TV. The kitchen is fully stocked with oven/stove, refrigerator, dishes & silverware, pots & pans, cooking utensils and a few spices . Sorry, no dishwasher!
The whole 2nd floor is yours! There is a keyless/coded door, so you don't have to worry about losing a key during your adventures around New Orleans! The door is coded and I change the code after every guest leaves. Free, on-street parking is plentiful. The space is not handicapped accessible and may not be a good fit for those with mobility issues or young children/babies. There is a full flight of steps you will need to climb and that cannot be blocked off from very young children. I know that my space says "family friendly" and it is (there's a recreation/community center with a play ground right across the street!), I'm just concerned about the stairs. So, if you have kids that can handle stairs well, please bring them! I'm sorry, but the backyard is not available for guest use.
I live downstairs with my 3 dogs. I can be as involved as you want or give you as much privacy as you need.
Just finished an almost complete renovation in October of 2017! Please note that this house was built over 140 years ago and has gone through some changes- you're going to notice a few "quirks", like some rooms have a slight slope (the foundation and structure is secure- sure spent enough to get it done right!), light switches in odd locations and there is no living room/common space (this was the 2nd floor of a whole house at one point).
The property is located right behind Louis Armstrong Park and Mahalia Jackson Theate, with easy access to I10. The airport is about a 30 minute drive away, depending on traffic. Esplanade Ave is 3 blocks in one direction and its a lovely, less than 10 min walk to the northern edge of the French Quarter (15 min to Bourbon St or Frenchman St, where the best local music can be heard). There are buses that run along both Esplanade and Claiborne St. The brand spankin' new North Rampart/St. Claude streetcar line is just a 5 minutes walk away! Street parking is available, at some times of the day or during big festival weekends, parking can be a little difficult. I suggest that once you find a good parking spot, keep it! Walking around is the best way to see New Orleans after all. I would err on the side of caution at nighttime, especially if you've had a couple of drinks on Bourbon St and either drive (with a designated driver!) or take a cab/Uber.
