Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings, a giant kitchen, big light-filled windows and a columned front porch for R&R - this apartment has all the things that make New Orleans architecture special. Add modern amenities like central air and heat, free WiFi and satellite TV, and you've got the perfect home base from which to explore all this great city has to offer!
Lovingly renovated in 2009 by yours truly, this apartment has some important features that are hard to come by in New Orleans. Number one, we have two large, INDEPENDENT bedrooms for maximum privacy and comfort - no walk-though bedrooms here. We have two FULL baths so no lines for the shower. We're a two story unit, with both bedrooms and one bath upstairs, and the den, kitchen and second bath downstairs - so you can easily steal a nap or a little quiet time whenever it suits you.
But the real appeal here is the neighborhood - as they say, location, location, location! We are one block off bustling Magazine Street, steps from over 30 of New Orleans finest restaurants and bars.
Prefer to dine in? Stock up at the Big Fisherman Seafood Market or Breaux Mart grocery, both two blocks away, and whip up your own culinary masterpiece in our large, fully-stocked kitchen. Should you need to pair that meal with a bottle of fine wine, the folks at Martin Wine Cellar - half a block away, will set you up nicely.
If you're like most, you're coming to New Orleans to indulge - and indulge you should! And when the guilty bug gets you, you've got your choice of yoga classes, gym workouts or spa treatments just steps away to get you feeling refreshed. Add to that a boatload of boutiques, art galleries and antique stores, and you'll understand why we love our neighborhood and our city so much!
In town for a special event? We are a short walk from the Magazine Street bus line and the St. Charles Street car line. So whether you're headed to the Superdome, Arena, French Quarter, Aquarium, D-Day Museum, Convention Center, or other downtown attractions, or the Audubon Park and Zoo or Universities uptown, you can get there quickly, easily, and in style. And Mardi Gras? You're practically ON the uptown parade route, a short walk away to St. Charles Avenue.
New Orleans is a lot to take in. Luckily, we live right next door, and are always eager to lend a helping hand. We are a fun-loving young couple (mid-30s), one a green technology financier and the other a professional musician in a popular local band. Why does that matter to you? Because we love our city and are deeply involved in every aspect of its culture! We invite you to enjoy the suggestions we've left for you about where to go and what to do. And above all we encourage you to ask us questions - we are so proud of our city and we want you to love it as much as we do!

Why Aaron Wilkinson chose Faubourg Delachaise
When we went house shopping our primary criteria was that we wanted to be able to walk to whatever we needed. Well we got that in spades! We are a short walk from over 30 of the city's finest restaurants, plus a seafood market, grocery and fine wine cellar, as well as a boatload of bars, lounges, boutiques and antique shops. You even have your choice of Yoga studios, gyms and a full service spas right here. Its an established New Orleans fact that Magazine Street has it all!
What makes this Apartment unique
This house is over 100 years old - it's a renovated Victorian which means you have all the things that make New Orleans architecture world famous - hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings, a giant kitchen, big light-filled windows and a columned front porch for R&R, just to name a few. However, all that Old World style can have it's limitations. Most homes like this in New Orleans are built in what's known as a shotgun style - meaning each room opens to the next from the front to the back of the house. That means many 'two bedroom' homes in New Orleans don't offer much privacy - you have to walk through each bedroom to get to the kitchen, bathroom, etc. Not the case here. We have two large, INDEPENDENT bedrooms for maximum privacy and comfort - no walk-thoughs. We have two FULL baths so no lines for the shower. We're a two story unit, with both bedrooms and one bath upstairs, and the den, kitchen and second bath downstairs - so you can easily steal a nap or a little quiet time whenever it suits you.

Comfortable & spacious for family vacation
Comfortable and Very clean, everything we needed for a family of four and our two little dogs. Great location near Magazine street. We ate our breakfast at the home and had dinner out. Superior Seafood had the best seafood & prices (especially the happy hour) :-)
This property really needs some TLC.
Kitchen was fine and home was clean. Downstairs bathroom floor is rotten and it was so so cold as there is no heat there. Thermostats were not working well and hanging off the walls. There was not enough warm bedding for cold nights. There were plenty of towels which was wonderful as often there are minimal bath linens.
Location is good and neighbors were nice. We felt safe.
Wonderful and very comfortable
Street parking was not an issue at all, house was more than expected and we were very comfortable in this rental. This was our first VRBO booking and it was so much more than expected. Had a fabulous "Christmas" weekend with our children and grandchildren. Have decided to make our Christmas the first weekend in New Orleans in the future as well - Magazine Street is wonderful. I just wonder if the owner will email me what kind of sheets and bedcover he has...I looked for tags and couldn't find them. Beds were like falling into a cloud! We will definitely be back!
Perfect location, safe street & more than enough room!
The owner was very gracious and the home was better than we could have imagined! It was very clean, very large and adorable! It was walking distance to Magazine street and everything we needed and I would stay there again in a heart beat!
Great location reasonable price
Could use some minor repairs but for the price everything was alrighr.
Very nice house, very clean. Love the neighborhood, too.
Glad you enjoyed the house and the neighborhood! Please stay again on your next visit!
Short walk to St. Charles avenue Street Car line and Mardi Gras parade route, one block to Magazine Street bus line, quick access to University area/Audubon Park/Zoo uptown or French Quarter/Museums/Aquarium downtown
