Beautiful, old home from the 1870's with Stained Glass windows, hardwood floors, and transom windows. Enjoy New Orleans, outside of the French Quarter. We have great nearby attractions like Jacques Imo's and the Maple Leaf and a wide selection of local music to sample while you plan out where to eat dinner. Close to the streetcar but far away from the drunken insanity downtown, we have the perfect spot to explore the rest of NOLA.

About Owner / Property Manager

I'm a retired Army officer who loves fixing old houses. Owning a place that was built when the Civil War was still a fresh memory (1870) allows me many opportunities to do just that! Now I'm a teacher and fan of New Orleans music, food, and culture. I am more than happy to show guests around or meet up for drinks and stories.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this Apartment in 2006

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Leonidas

I picked this home because I couldn't believe it was for sale when it was for the price it was. It was right after hurricane Katrina. The house is above sea level and only sustained wind damage (no flooding) but had been neglected for decades. Wait till you see the old hardwood floors that have come back to life, the 18 inch baseboards, the high ceilings, and the stained glass. Look at the old coal fireplaces and marble inlays. I'm currently saving up for a magnificent chandelier from the 1920's but that's for 2018!

What makes this Apartment unique

Stay here if you want a chance to relax and see a quieter part of the city. Sit on your private balcony and watch the sun go down, or take one of our bikes out to Audubon Park. We have live music and phenomenal local restaurants as well as being close to the universities. This is not a place for bachelor party heading to the French Quarter. This IS a place for a romantic weekend or a quick getaway.

                                        Great location, Friendly owner

                                        Edie C.

                                        Evan is a great host, and the location of this is perfect for exploring the Uptown area on foot. We walked from the home to restaurants and clubs, and took a short Uber ride to Tipitina's for a concert.

                                        Very Much Enjoyed the Stay

                                        Great place to stay on my mini road trip! The place was clean and quaint, no complaints at all. Got the chance to enjoy some local music, which was a huge plus. Will definitely be staying here again on my return trip :)
