Overview

About the property

If you are looking for the perfect NOLA experience, you've found it! My completely remodeled, 100 year old, eclectic 3 bdrm/2 bath home is the perfect home base for your New Orleans vacation. Come visit this urban neighborhood and live like a local for a few days. You won't find another home like this! With 13 foot ceilings throughout, every room is bright, comfortable and a unique artistic experience. Three short, walkable blocks to St. Charles Ave. where you can catch the Street Car and take it most anywhere in town; into the French Quarter, Downtown, through the Garden District and up to Carrolton just to name a few. Stay here and make this a trip you'll never forget.

THE HOUSE: You won't find another home like this! It offers unique design elements such as an upcycled dining table that is made from an old shuffleboard table. A collection of old telephones adorns the front wall. The original millwork has been preserved for that old New Orleans feel. It has four beautiful original (nonworking) fireplaces and the original hardwood floors throughout the house add that turn of the century quality to this eclectic home. Relax with your coffee or glass of wine on the front porch or the back deck and enjoy the sites and smells of New Orleans. The home was renovated from the ground up this year with all new plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning.

LOCATION: The house is just three blocks to St. Charles where you can catch the street car down in to the French Quarter/Marigny and Downtown or take it deeper into the Garden District to the bend in the river where St. Charles becomes Carrollton and on to Oak Street for many more amazing shops, bars and restaurants. You can walk to Commanders Palace

THE EXPERIENCE: I believe NOLA is the best city. Whether you are coming for business or pleasure, I LOVE helping my guests have the best possible experience on their trip to the Big Easy. I have an updated welcome book that is filled with lists of all of my favorite restaurants, bars with places to see and things to do. Once booked, I will send you a welcome letter with suggestions and ideas and tips on how to make the most of your stay here so you can start planning where you want to go and eat before you even arrive! I'm always happy to help with any suggestions to help fit your groups needs. If you'd like, I have a personal shopper that can stock the house with groceries before you arrive or a chef that can come cook a special meal for you and your guests. If you stay at the Carriage House I'll do everything in my power to assure you have a terrific experience in New Orleans.

MY OTHER LISTING: I have a 2nd rental in the Garden District just about a mile from this house. I renovated both homes from the ground up, making sure each house feels like a home away from home. I believe I have created a unique and creative experience that is unique to the feel and atmosphere of New Orleans. Because the Carriage House on Dryades is new listing, feel free to see my other home and read the reviews so you can be confident that when you rent one of my homes you are getting the best service and attention to make sure your vacation is the best it can be!

About Holly Wolf

I spent half my life in New Orleans and half in Aspen growing up and now I'm lucky enough to live in sunny San Diego. But my heart belongs to the South. I am an artist through and through. I also love water sports that are ON the water (not in). I've loved Outrigger Paddling for years and now I've been trying Rowing. Living in San Diego, you want to be outside as much as possible!

I LOVE food! I love cooking it, eating it, creating it and sharing it. I think the food scene in NOLA is to die for! And don't get me started on the music, art, architecture, Southern accents and hospitality, scenery and smells down there! Just waking up in this city feeds my soul! I'm a wife with an amazing husband and mother of 2 extraordinary teenagers away at college. I can't believe I'm finally lucky enough to have not one buy TWO homes in NOLA that I can use AND share with others.

Holly Wolf purchased this house in 2016

Beautiful home!! Great host!

  • 5 of 5

Two couples stayed here and it was great because it was like we had our own wings of the home. House is spacious and big enough for a few more people. We had a great time at Holly’s home. The House was beautifully redone and so interesting to look at. We discovered something interesting to look at everyday. Just like the city of New Orleans itself! Street car is a few blocks away, and a liquor/convenience store is right around the corner!

Gem right off Magazine St.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in this extremely comfortable gem right off Magazine St. Excellent location to the trolley and just an $8-12 dollar ride to Bourbon! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy it!!

Amazing character

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved all the charm and décor of the Carriage House. The house was full of little touches that were discovered during our stay. Everything one could think of was on hand to make it more comfortable. The parking even allowed for a full sized suburban to be carefully backed in to keep it off of the street. Location was in easy walking distance to the street car, cemetery and historic homes of the Garden District. The street the Carriage House is located on has several other homes that have been completely remodeled making this transitional street that much closer to charming perfection.

Beautiful older home with a modern touch

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our first stay in New Orleans. And this house just added to the experience. Old home, but very fun and tastefully updated. So much going on and always finding new things on the wall. Holly is super easy to work with and a quick responder to questions and emails.

The house is beautiful. The decor is eclectic and fun.

  • 5 of 5

My girls and I had the best time. The house was fun and comfortable and the experience was one I will never forget -- from walking down Bourbon Street to waking up to the sounds of a second line.

Holly was an amazing host and was very attentive. She also has some great recommendations of spots to hit during your visit! Thank you so much Holly!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home!! Enjoyed the stay and Holly was very accommodating. This home has so much character and detail!! I am a photographer and could not help but take advantage of taking pictures of my friends and myself in this home. Property is not far from the French quarter and there was a lovely breakfast place a couple blocks away. I would definitely recommend a friend to stay here. I might stay here again for my next trip to NOLA.
