Centrally located, you'll be an easy 10-15 minutes (give or take) from any major destinations and activities within city limits.

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!
