About Celeste O'Keefe
Hi! I am a native of Mississippi and lived in New Orleans from 1984 until 1997 and LOVED it !! My husband and I have 3 boys and we live back in our hometown of Ocean Springs, MS.
Celeste O'Keefe purchased this House in 1993
Why Celeste O'Keefe chose Downtown CBD
We wanted a house easily accessible to the BEAUTY of Uptown and the FUN/Excitement of Downtown along with the ambience of a New Orleans home. We also wanted to be able to use the WONDERFUL streetcar and it is right outside our door! Additionally, it was important to have Parking and we were so lucky to find a place with 6 spots! We also were impressed with the selection of fabulous restaurants within walking distance of the house such as Emeril's !
What makes this House unique
It has brick walls and floors, two fireplaces, a BALCONY on the Avenue which is impossible to find a place to rent with one! The beautiful hardwood floors and 12' ceilings bring the true feeling of New Orleans yet it feels like home!

Great location. House has a lot of character.
What a Great Condo!!
We had a last minute work trip come up and this house was perfect for are group of 5. So much better than a hotel. The house was very clean and the owner was great. It has a great New Orleans feel to it. We really enjoyed being able to park our car, walk out the front door and take the Street car into town. We are already making plans to come back for a girls weekend since this was a short work trip.
FUN, FUN, FUN
A group of my college friends stayed at the house and we LOVED it! It had a lot of charm with the wood and brick floors and even brick walls!! We were happy to have two kitchens as we all liked our midnight snacks! And sitting on the balcony was a plus. Joyce was so very helpful and we will be back.
I Love New Orleans
We had a wonderful time. Our room was so clean and comfortable, the house is quiet and beautifully decorated. This was my first time using a vacation rental; each floor has a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, the upstairs has a lovely balcony overlooking the garden district.
Good location for jumping on the streetcar line!
We rented the entire place and had an enjoyable weekend and would have probably given five stars if the property was ready and clean for us upon arrival. When we arrived, the property had not been cleaned from the previous renters. The property manager gave us the code to get fresh linens out of a closet and we had to make our own beds. There was glitter all over the couch from what I am assuming was the aftermath of a Mardi Gras parade. The next morning a cleaning crew was sent over to clean the apartment. We were compensated for our troubles the night before so we’re happy to let them clean the place and stay for our second night. The only other suggestion I could make would be to either not have tenants unmake the beds and clean so much before departure. I would have thought that the cleaning fee would have covered most of that. I realize that the cleaning crew needs to be paid, but we did a lot of the work for them. Making sure the dishes were clean and put away, taking the trash to the can out back and ensuring new bags are in the cans inside and removing all of the bed linens from the beds and placing them in the laundry room. On the positive, this location is a great spot to get on the streetcar. The balcony is nice to have as well, especially if you are there during Mardi Gras season. Overall we had a great trip, just a few bumps in the beginning.
We do appreciate our tenants! Your reviews make us better.
LINENS: We are so sorry there were no linens on the bed. We did offer our cleaning crew to come and change the linens or a refund of two hundred and ninety five dollars and you chose the refund...............................
CLEANING CREW: they game the next morning as you requested to wash linens........
Thank you so much for the suggestion in reference to the dishes and beds! We do agree with you and we have removed that posting at the house.
We are so glad you had a great trip!
Authentic old New Orleans
I was glad we had both units as the only street access was in the lower unit
