This truly stunning unit is the entire downstairs apartment of this centrally located home in an excellent neighborhood and is truly the perfect spot for Jazz Fest, getting to the French Quarter, the Museum of Art, Cafe Degas and many other great attractions in the city. The fairgrounds are literally in the backyard and the place is a quick drive over to the French Quarter (keep in mind, it's about 5 minutes driving down Esplanade Ave. but walking there, while very enjoyable, is more like 40 minutes or so). There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths here, a large kitchen (no stove though), a kitchenette area, 2 living rooms, a reading room and a 'decorative' weight room. This listing is for the entire downstairs, about 2200 square feet with a private, separate entrance from the upstairs.
The owner, Bill, in is an interior designer with his own unique and whimsical style (as the pictures might hint at), and staying here in person is really a unique experience. Bill helped me decorate my house (see VRBO #425650) so I'm returning the favor by helping him rent his downstairs out for some additional income to help maintain this historic Arts and Crafts style home in New Orleans.
Please do be aware though that there is a maximum of 6 people in this downstairs unit, and it is very possible that there will be other guests staying in the upstairs apartment. The two apartments have totally separate entrances so privacy would not be an issue, however you might hear some footsteps and occasional voices from the guests above. We always will ask and do our best to make sure that the guests staying in either space will be respectful of noise for others, especially in the evenings. So far though, we haven't had any issues at all. Here is the link to the upstairs apartment if you are interested: www.vrbo.com/654362
Also, please note that we do not rent out both spaces together to large groups as it can encourage excessive foot traffic throughout the home/ noise in the neighborhood, and it is very important to us that we be respectful to neighbors in the area. I am afraid we cannot make exceptions to this rule.
Thanks so much for your interest and if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out:)
