About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + 3 Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 1-8)

Central location in quiet Uptown neighborhood provide the perfect base for exploring New Orleans. 4 blocks from St. Charles streetcar and vibrant up-and-coming Freret Street. Plenty to see, do, and eat within walking distance. All major sites within 5 to 15 minutes traffic permitting. Longer term guests preferred, with discounts available. Accommodations available for smaller parties as well. Not suitable for bachelor or bachelorette parties. Mature, responsible adults, and well behaved, attended to children welcome.

This stylish Victorian shotgun has been featured on design blogs such as Apartment Therapy and Camille Styles, in creative photo shoots for Anthology Magazine, advertising campaigns, and is currently showcased in the recently released gorgeous interiors book “House Proud:Unique Home Design, Louisiana” by Valorie Hart.

Lush gardens and ample yard space ensure privacy for both guests and owner alike. Guest quarters include the back half of the main house and the studio loft. With a private entrance and dedicated guest patio with ample seating, you'll feel like you have the whole place to yourselves.


From the private garden path, enter the main house directly into the living room. This part of your rental has a full kitchen, living room with a flat screen TV and queen pullout sofa sleeper, 2 full bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom is a queen, has a flat screen TV and french doors opening out to the back patio. One of these 2 bedrooms also has twin trundle beds that can convert into a king, and an en suite full bathroom with a stand alone shower and whirlpool tub.

The third bedroom is a queen in the studio which is a separate building that closely dovetails the back of the house. The bed is in a sleeping loft located up easily navigable stairs. The living room below has the other queen sleeper sofa, additional seating, a flat screen TV, walk-in closet, and a fold out table that seats 6. Through another well appointed kitchen you’ll find the third bathroom with a roomy shower, W/D, and a door to the guest patio.

The gardens and private patio provide the perfect space to entertain small parties or just to simply relax. There is seating for 4-6 at a dining table, and another conversational seating area accommodating 5-6.

Cooking in or out is easy with 2 well appointed kitchens and the gas grill. Accessories like food tents, pitchers, and melamine plates keep the party rolling. Seasonal herbs such as rosemary, mint, oregano, and basil are typically available in the old sink planter by the apartment door to add fresh flavors to both food and drink. When in season, Meyer lemons, Kumquats and Blood oranges abound and will be made available in fruit baskets by the herbs.

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Located in the heart of Uptown in a quiet neighborhood near Napoleon and St. Charles, this stylish Victorian shotgun nestled into lush gardens is the perfect place to base your New Orleans vacation. Centrally located, you'll be an easy 10-15 minutes (give or take) from any major destinations and activities within city limits.

The residential neighborhood is filled with architectural gems. Whether they be grand mansions on oak lined avenues, or picturesque Victorian shotguns and bungalows, you'll be sure to enjoy an excellent array of all the varied and admired styles of New Orleans architecture.

The lively Freret Street corridor, featuring some of the city's favorite restaurants and bars, is just a 4 block walk up the street. Even closer you will find small local coffee shops and cafes perfect for breakfast or a light lunch. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and other amenities are all within a mile's distance.

Catch the St. Charles streetcar 4 blocks from the house and enjoy a picturesque ride down to the French Quarter, or head in the opposite direction to explore Audubon Park and Zoo, Loyola and Tulane. Even further along you’ll find stunning views of the Mississippi River along the length of the levee in the charming Riverbend neighborhood.

Shopping and dining on Magazine Street is an easy 12 block walk from the house. With six miles of shops, bars, and restaurants, all the way from the CBD up to Audubon Park, there surely something for everyone.

If in town for a convention, the Ernest Morial Convention Center is 2.5 miles away and just a short walk from one of the streetcar stops. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome and Smoothie King Arena are 2.5 miles away as well.

About: I have been living in New Orleans since '98 and can't imagine calling another place home. I love to travel, but the best part of that is knowing I am coming back here. I work as an artist, designer, and avid gardener. I consider my home and gardens one of my best works yet...enjoy!
