Overview

About the property

1BR , 1BA + Living, Sleeps 2-4, Courtyard And Off Street Parking

Our house is located at the NW corner of the Bywater, one block from the Marigny and five from the Mississippi. We live in the back of the house. The front two rooms and bathroom of this recently renovated 1850's classic New Orleans shotgun make up the private apartment.

There is a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, in lieu of a kitchen. French doors open to a gated courtyard where you are welcome to lounge and entertain. The house is on Rampart St at Press St, the border between the Bywater and Marigny, which is an industrial strip with an active, sporadic rail. This means that we are ideally situated in both neighborhoods and also that we hear our lovely train at odd hours. It's charming, but at times loud.

We're a short walk to amazing restaurants, bars, coffee shops, thrift stores, art galleries and parks. Frenchman St is about seven blocks away and the French Quarter is ten. Renting bikes is a great option for seeing the city (we can recommend a good rental place if this is of interest) or if you prefer to rent a car there is always available parking right out front. The Bywater really is a magical place from which to explore the rest of the city. Feel free to send word if you have questions. We'd love to have you!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in The Lily Pad before and loved it. It's so cute and comfortable. The owners are incredibly nice and accommodating. And it's very well located - right down the street from an amazing restaurant (N7). Can't wait to come back!

Clean, tidy, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Great location, well stocked, comfy bed.

We loved the binder full of suggestions for food and fun in the area.

We also very much appreciated the Billie Holiday records.

The train is loud at night but I like trains so that's not a problem for me.

Thanks a lot, Erin!

Hands Down: My "Go-to" in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

Lily Pad is wonderful. Right close to all the dynamic neighborhood action in NOLA Bywater neighborhood. LP has plenty of cold, cold A/C and hot hot-water. What's not to love?

Comfy pad in sweet location

  • 5 of 5

Erin and Travis are marvelous hosts. The apartment is clean, tastefully decorated and perfectly located for an authentic NOLA experience. I would traditionally be turned off by a lack of kitchen, but the set up is more than adequate and there is absolutely no need to cook in this scrumptious city. Beautiful food just blocks away. Highly recommended.

Charming home. Charming owners. Love neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we couldn't figure out the futon and within seconds a friendly face was knocking. I can't figure out if it would be the adorably decorated and surprisingly spacious house we would return to or the St Rochs market/restaurant or the friendly owners. The place ended up nearly paying for itself because with plenty of parking spaces we saved over a hundred while we were on a cruise for a week and just came back on our way out. Loved the yard too. See you soon!
