The cultural love child of genteel old Europe, the exotic Caribbean and the sultry South, New Orleans' original colonial neighborhood sets the scene for memorable romantic getaways. This is a city that revels in its passions, and for the visitor with an open heart the sensuality here can be infectious. It is also a city where people come to celebrate, whether by joining the massive public exuberance of Mardi Gras and other events or marking personal milestones in the lives of lovers, such as honeymoons and anniversaries. When a couple raises a glass in toast to each other, it can seem as though the entire town is following suit here.
Part of the appeal of New Orleans is its relaxed pace - a key ingredient to any romantic experience - and a leisurely carriage ride for two is a romantic way to get acquainted with the neighborhood at the beginning of a visit. Various types of mule-drawn carriages are available for hire at Jackson Square on Decatur Street. Carriage drivers generally narrate their tours of the Quarter with stories of various landmark properties, but just let him or her know at the start that you prefer to concentrate on your companion's company and you will have a serene cruise past the beautiful architecture and colorful street-scapes of the Vieux Carré. Snuggle under a blanket on the occasional chilly evening or bask in the tropical sunshine during another beautiful New Orleans day.
The French Quarter's many elegant restaurants make ideal venues for special meals with loved ones. But while the city is most famous for its Creole cuisine, it is the Italian restaurants of the French Quarter that offer some of the most romantic settings.

I am a professional who came to New Orleans post-Katrina to work on homes in Chalmette, (Saint Bernard Parish) that were damaged by water and the oil spill that occurred from Katrina. I fell in love with this city and the people here and decided to purchase a home and re-locate. I believe in the special magic of New Orleans and it's people and am dedicated to the rebuilding process.
Carol purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Carol chose Vieux Carre District
New Orleans is the most unique city in the United States with a European 'feel'. New Orleans architecture, history, music, art, and world renowned cuisine attract visitors from all over the world. I chose this property because of its proximity to the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. Our home is located in the famous Bend of Bourbon where the 'Street Car Named Desire' once traveled. We are surrounded by mansions and homes on the National Historical Registry.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are located in the historic Marigny in a quiet, residential neighborhood, a stones throw from the French Quarter and 2 blocks from Frenchmen Street, where traditional live jazz still reigns king. Enjoy convenient, free on street parking directly in front of our home. New Orleans is a walking city and our home is conveniently located to access famous restaurants, watering holes, live music, live theatre, shopping, museums and sightseeing without the use of a car.

Charming and Perfect
The location, space and accessibility to everything can NOT be beat! Perfect for one or two travelers to call home for a few days!
Great place in NOLA!
This was a wonderful place to stay for our first trip to New Orleans. The room was very clean and we loved the privacy of it being a separate space in the back courtyard. Very easy walk to French Quarter and all that it has to offer, but even closer to Frenchman Street and it's nightlife. Carol was a gracious host with many great recommendations for entertainment, food, etc. We will definitely contact Carol on our next trip to The Big Easy!
Thanks so much, Mike!....My pleasure have you as our guest.
Hope to see 'ya again soon! ~ Carol

Nice little place for Mardi Gras. Close to some great restaurants and just a few blocks from the French Quarters. Everything is within walking distance. The owner is a very nice lady and very helpful.
Cool place! Cool host!
My wife and I (first trip without our baby) had a wonderful time at Carol's place. Great place for a couples getaway. Great location. Close to the action, but far enough away from the noise. Cozy and quaint. Great places to eat in close proximity. Carol is a very cool host. Thanks, Carol! We will definitely stay again.
Cool Beans!.....So glad you had a blast! Hope to see you again soon! ~ Carol
Great location, walking distance to French quarter. Friendly and informative owner. No cooking facilities on site, has fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Accomodation consists of one room and bathroom.Access to accomodation is behind owners home , not on ground level,need to climb stairs to access .
Thanks MaryAnn!......All of the specs of the listing were described to you in our conversation, in detail, when you accepted the booking. So there should not have been any surprises. (I speak with Every Guest before accepting a booking) Also, everything is in the listing regarding the amenities.
The only "surprise" to me is that you chose to write a review that does not highlight your experience in New Orleans and chose to write one describing what you already knew the listing provided and did not provide.
This is a very private, safe and quiet space and location. We are 1/2 block from the French Quarter and 2 blocks from Frenchmen Street. Our street and the streets leading to Frenchmen have street lights and flood lights paid for by the people that live here.....so we are very well lit at night.
You chose this location.....based on Location and Price...(which is VERY affordable)....which needed to fit your budget.
That being said.....please read this review accordingly.
Wonderful stay in New Orleans
A perfect location for seeing the best of New Orleans.
A lovely quiet spot, yet within walking distance of everything. Carol's pre information for dining and sightseeing is comprehensive and proved invaluable for us , as first visitors to this beautiful city.
Hi Russell!.....so glad you enjoyed your stay at our Lofty Oasis! ~ Carol
