Tom Bensen purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Tom Bensen chose Faubourg Livaudais

Close to Commander's Palace, 6 short blocks to Magazine Street, a St. Charles Street car stop is one short block away and takes you to French quarter in 10-12 minutes. Our central location is convenient to just about anywhere in the Crescent City.

It's our goal to make you feel at home in our home. We're sure you'll love this place as much as we do and will want to come back.

You'll find all the modern and up to date conveniences of a 4 or 5 star hotel at a fraction of the cost at our Garden District Chateau. In fact we've even given her a name, 'Le Chateau du Carondelet'. Quiet elegance, in one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world.

What makes this apartment unique

We are only 200' from St. Charles Ave and the street car line. It's a 10-12 minute ride to the French Quarter and the center of town on Canal St. Easy access to anywhere in the city from our central location and only a 5 minute walk to Commander's Palace Restaurant and the Lafayette Cemetery. Nearby Magazine St is full of local eateries, pubs, shops, and galleries.

Our 1860's mansion has been converted into four luxurious units each designed to meet the full range of travel and hospitality needs from that romantic getaway for just the two of you; up to a group of ten celebrating that unique and special occasion that only New Orleans can make even more memorable. The Garden District and its ambience will add that extra special something to your travel experience here in The Crescent City.

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

We found this house while searching for a place to be HQ for a family reunion. Our original plans were blown away by the hurricane in the Fall of 2017 but the owner was flexible and worked out alternate dates.

The place is big and has plenty of room to spread out. The second story gallery is especially nice in the mornings. Everything was clean and comfortable and the AC worked very well, a big plus in Summertime NOLA,

The location is convenient, just a short Uber ride from the French Quarter and within walking distance of Magazine St. iIt was a very nice place to stay.

Picturesque, beautiful & spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Our large group of friends loved Tom & Roberta's quaint home. The four bedrooms and three bathrooms were the perfect size for our group. The upstairs patio porch was a really nice perk for enjoying the nice weather.

Tom & Roberta were accommodating, responsive and understanding hosts.

The location is in a perfect spot for walking through the St Charles/uptown area - close to the trolley and on average a 15 minute/$10+ ride-share trip - totally reasonable.

I loved sitting in the dining room area in the late afternoon with sunlight streaming through all of the big windows.

Definitely recommend!

Excellent home for large family in great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a house for my husband and me, our three daughters and their partners, and a son and a friend coming and going. This house was spacious enough to accommodate the various people and was in the perfect location. There were plenty of dishes and glassware, and the kitchen and dining area were more than sufficient for our group that reached up to 12 people for meals and socializing. The neighborhood was relatively quiet (there were some vehicles driving fast along the streets in the early morning) and the house itself was lovely. The only comment my daughter (who is 5' 2") made was that there were no mirrors for her height, as most of them were hung higher up. And when we dressed for a formal affair, I realized there were no floor length mirrors, which can easily be installed on the back of the closet doors. But those are minor vanity issues, that do not detract from this lovely, very convenient, hospitable old home!

Wonderful long weekend in New Orleans!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 thirty-somethings thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tom's home. There was plenty of space for us, and we felt truly immersed in the experience of New Orleans! You can't get this experience in a hotel.

The location is excellent for exploring the Garden District, and the French Quarter is a quick ride away. Be sure to check out Magazine Street while you are there.
