Just a few short blocks away: Famous restaurants and watering holes, live music, shopping, art galleries, museums, antique shops, Jackson Square and the Moon Walk on the levee of the Mississippi River, Authentic paddle wheel Steam Boat Natchez, La Petite Theatre, Mahalia Jackson Theatre for the Performing Arts, Audubon Aquarium, Harrah's Casino, plus much more!

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.

About Carol

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 Faubourg Marigny

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.

My wife and I decided to spend the first few days of our honeymoon exploring New Orleans. All the hotels that we saw were either out of our price range or too far away, so we jumped at the opportunity stay at Carol's place when we saw it on

The location and accomodations were literally exactly what we were looking for. It's in a great, safe neighborhood, and the route from the house to the heart of Bourbon street was quick, easy and direct (which is especially helpful at the end of a long night in the French Quarter...). Frenchman's street is just as convenient and even closer if you are looking to experience the more "cultural" (i.e. arts and music scene) side of New Orleans. The room isn't exactly palatial, but it's comfortable, clean, quiet, very private, and in all ways, as much as you will need. With as much as New Orleans has to offer, you shouldn't be spending that much time in the room anyway.

Since there is so much to see, do, and (most importantly) eat in this city, having a knowledgeable resource like Carol was invaluable. She knew exactly what to recommend based on what we wanted to do. I felt like I had done my homework before we got there and that we knew all the places we wanted to go, but Carol directed us to a few other places that I hadn't found (and steered us away from the tourist traps), and that definitely enhanced the trip.

This was our first trip to New Orleans, and we decided on the first night that it would not be our last. We will definitely be staying at Carol's Oasis again.

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.

Great place in NOLA!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Cool place! Cool host!

  • 5 of 5

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.

A perfect location for seeing the best of New Orleans.

Terrific NOLA!

  • 5 of 5

Carol was a terrific host providing wonderful sightseeing and dining spots tourists would not know about. AND all this in writing prior to our arrival. Mardi Gras museum, Frenchman St. dining options and a better place for coffe and benegts than Cafe du Mond! What wonderful help from a gracious host. We sure enjoyed Lofty Oasis.

(I've eaten in over 200 restaurants in NOLA and haven't made a dent yet!) Hope you have a chance to visit with us again soon! ~ Carol
