About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)


Our location for Mardi Gras and Jazzfest is IDEAL - the Krewe du Vieux, St. Ann's, and Krewe of Eris, and Muses parades are all just steps from our front door. As well as JazzFest, most evening venues are within walking distance. Bicycling is the best way to travel long distances during Mardi Gras, and there is a shop just-blocks-away that rents bikes.

Completely remodeled Bouligny plantation servants quarters, built in 1865 just 2 blocks off the Mississippi. Open concept, brand new furniture throughout - this is a camelback double so it is a house behind the front house - in the middle of everything but completely private front deck and back patio area. You can hear the trains and boats up and down the river, and the music from Tipitinas famous jazz club is nearby but not loud.

FIRST FLOOR: Kitchen, dining and living areas are all open concept with a private partially covered deck and an open patio.

SECOND FLOOR: 2 Bedrooms, both with brand new beds 1 king and 1 queen, walk-in closet, additional shelving, TV in each room and computer desk in one of the bedrooms. Full bathroom and laundry room are separate and in the middle of the floor with the two bedrooms on each end of the house, both with views of the banana tress and gardens around the area.

SORRY, NO early check-ins, or early-arrival baggage storage.

About Dave Richard, Manager

Our guests want the experience of living in a real neighborhood, food shopping and cooking, things you can't normally do on vacation.

Dave Richard, Manager purchased this house in 2010

Why Dave Richard, Manager chose Uptown-Carrollton

Location, location. This is in the middle of everything but is also a real neighborhood - a supermarket is so close its like living there - one of the best kept secret restaurants is less than a block away, as well as Tipitina's jazzclub, so the location is beyond ideal for Mardi Gras (walking distance but not TOO crazy) and ideal for Jazzfest as most venues are within walking distance. You can walk to anything but its also convenient to drive and park on the street - it is the best of everything.

What makes this house unique

We have set this up in every way so that the guest comes away with the experience of having LIVED in New Orleans. It is a profoundly unique city and sadly most visitors never make it beyond the French Quarter and miss out on a wealth of beauty and experience. Specifically, the size, condition, and the abundance of TWO private spaces in the heart of the city are virtually unheard of. SORRY, NO early check-ins, or early-arrival baggage storage.

Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, location. This property is in an ideal location. Close to everything. Parked the car out front and used Uber the entire long weekend. Nice back patio to chill out on. Two comments : Both bedrooms as well as the bathroom are upstairs. No big deal for us, just be forewarned. There is a abundance of appliances, with the exception of a "real" coffee pot/maker. Maybe I just couldn't find it? There is a Keurig coffee machine but it would have been nice to have been able to make an entire pot of coffee and sit out on the back deck in the morning. Food for thought. Lastly, while VRBO says the security deposit is returned in 72 hours, that is not exactly the case. I know it's forthcoming and no big deal, but again just food for thought, if you need the security deposit back quickly. All in all, had a outstanding time at this place ( was here for first big weekend of Mardi Gras). At this house, you would never know Mardi Gras was going on literally right down the street. I would definitely stay here again when visiting New Orleans. Laissez les bons temps rouler!!!

Owner's Response: You were wonderful guests to have, a breeze from beginning to end. Re the coffee maker, we actually purchased the Keurig at the request of another guest saying for such small parties they didn't like having to make a whole pot of coffee. It is much more expensive to have the K Cups but the guests thus far have preferred that. Perhaps we will consider having both. You are always welcome back.

Outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this stay. We were right on several parade routes for Mardi Gras. Seen more parades than we have in our whole life. 2nd time renting from this owner and they have been fabulous to work with. Plan on coming next year and hope to get the same place.

Thanks for a great week

Mardi Gras - Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying at this property for Mardi Gras. It is a comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment located in the 2-story section of a camelback shotgun house. Most of the parades are literally right at the end of the street on Napoleon. Tipitina's concert venue is also right around the corner as is Rouse's supermarket - all within walking distance. Magazine Street is located a short walk away and filled with restaurants and shops. Parking on the street hasn't been a problem. The owners are great to work with and very accommodating. We once again enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property for any time of year!

Mardi Gras Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 9-day stay at this property. The owners are a delight to deal with and were very accommodating. The property is in a fantastic location for Mardi Gras parades & having a student at Tulane - we were right between both! We were traveling as a family with our 16-year old and found the home to be very comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are super comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and having Direct TV was a treat! Walking to the grocery store on the corner or up to Magazine Street is an added bonus as well. I would highly recommend this property!
