About the property

Book with confidence in our city-licensed vacation rental! Spacious apartment features fresh, modern appointments w/ original vintage details in our lovely Craftsman-era home. Located in the heart of a quiet, tree-lined residential neighborhood, while conveniently close to the action. 4 blocks to St. Charles streetcar and walking distance to all the amazing restaurants, music clubs, & shopping that St Charles Ave, Oak St, Maple St and Carrollton Ave have to offer! Near Tulane U, Loyola U & Audubon Park.

You'll feel right at home, with comfortable beds and all the amenities you could need for your satellite TV with HBO, smart TVs with access to Netflix, Amazon Video, etc. Fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. Second bathroom has washer and dryer, available for free.

I am a native New Orleanian, with French Louisiana heritage that dates back to 1720--that's before the Louisiana Purchase! I have lived here my entire life, except for a few years when I lived in San Francisco and when I worked in national parks. My love for this city runs deep--there's truly nowhere else like it. My hometown's unique culture, art, and architecture is a rich source of inspiration for me as a designer.

My fiancé Tom made New Orleans his home 17 years ago, and around here that qualifies him as a "local." Tom is the owner/creative director of one of the most authentic live local music clubs in New Orleans, called D.B.A., which is located on world-famous Frenchmen St. If you love experiencing live local and regional music, you should definitely check out D.B.A. We'd be happy to treat all guests staying at our apartment (adults age 21+ only) to one free show per booking.

We both love music, art, and food, and we love celebrating the unique cultures and traditions of New Orleans and Louisiana. Did I mention FOOD?! New Orleans has world-class cuisine at every price level. Just let us know what you're looking for, and we'll be happy to offer suggestions, as we strive to make your visit to New Orleans an unforgettable one!

Beautiful home close to the streetcar

  • 5 of 5

Wendy was the best hostess we could have imagined. She was thoughtful and considerate and provided us with great information about the area! The property is a short walk to the streetcar and provided a beautiful space close enough to be convenient and far enough away to enjoy a peaceful atmosphere in the evening. The beds we're super cozy and the house was well stocked with those thoughtful touches that make any trip just a bit more special! Thank you Wendy and Tom for making our first NOLA trip memorable! We will definitely be back when we return to the city.

We had a wonderful stay!! Wendy's hospitality was amazing! From the communication prior to the trip to the communication during and after, she far exceeded our expectations! She also provided breakfast "fixings", bananas and snack bars! Oh let's not forget the chips!

Highly recommend staying here and will do so again if we find ourselves traveling to New Orleans again!

I love, love, loved my stay with Wendy! Perfect for a girl’s trip. Pricing was reasonable and the screened porch a real plus. I would highly recommend. You won’t be sorry!

Comfortable, clean and great host!

  • 5 of 5

Wendy's house was perfect for our visit to New Orleans.The location is quiet but close to Tulane, restaurants and the streetcar. The house is well appointed, very clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the extra touches such as snacks and everything we needed for fixing a hot breakfast. She could not be a more considerate host and we would definitely stay there again.
