Overview

About the property

Apartment, on one side of a larger home where the owners reside.

One of the best kept secrets in New Orleans is available for anyone who would like to experience New Orleans in a lovely historical home filled with gracious Southern hospitality in the Garden District. This is a New Orleans privately owned and licensed B&B apartment in the owner's home and the owners live in the main home.

A private front entrance welcomes you and French doors open to a private pool and courtyard. Ideal accommodations for 1 or 2 adults. Environment not advisable for young children. Pets not allowed.

If you prefer to visit New Orleans and stay in a home and neighborhood with a lot of history, this is a real gem. The interior is intimate and tasteful and the neighborhood is historic and beautiful. Our home is decorated in traditional Southern New Orleans style.

The apartment is filled with artifacts and collections from our travels around the world. It is colorful, cozy and tasteful. We take immaculate care of our home, gardens and pool. We welcome our guests to enjoy our home - over 100 years old - and our beautiful historical neighborhood.

The Garden District is a neighborhood only minutes away from all of the venues of New Orleans including the French Quarter, Superdome, Convention Center and Sports Arena. Mardi Gras parades are on St. Charles Avenue - a short walk of 4 blocks. Magazine Street, filled with boutiques, shopping, restaurants and coffee shops is a beautiful walk and just 1 block from our home.

Historic St. Charles Avenue is a lovely four block walk through the Garden District. Once at St. Charles Avenue, you can hop on the streetcar and venture to the French Quarter in one direction or Audubon Park and Zoo in the other.

The Garden District of New Orleans has its own private security patrol 24 hours a day.

New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were in NOLA for a graduation weekend. We loved staying at this residence. It is a great location, out of the french quarter (think quiet!) - but close enough to go in for dining. Also block and half from Magazine street, with great restaurants and antiquing. We spent an entire day relaxing at the pool. The home has been beautifully restored and the hosts are very accomadating.

Would highly recommend!

Historic Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent residential garden district neighborhood near Magazine Street and many good restaurants, grocery and drug store. A short trolley, taxi or drive to French Quarter, Audobon Park, Superdome or Universities. Restored historic home with immaculate private pool & garden for relaxing in luxury. Owners were more than accomodating..........they easily became friends. Can't wait to visit again..........we did not have enough time to take it all in.
