About Tracy Hamlin

I am a costume designer here in New Orleans. I was just awarded the RAW Fashion Designer of the Year 2012 for New Orleans. Born in the Mississippi Delta, I naturally migrated downstream to New Orleans. Finished a graduate program at the University of New Orleans and decided to stay in the city and rear my two children here. I started making headdresses while costuming during Mardi Gras. Costuming is a tradition in New Orleans because of Mardi Gras and various other activities. My creations have gone from headdresses to decorated feathered bustiers to nutria pelt bags and purses. Using feathers, appliques, alligator heads, oyster shells, Spanish moss and an assortment of other trinkets, I create headdresses that are both comfortable and adjustable. I sell on etsy and have sent headdresses, bustiers and nutria bags all over the United States, and even as far away as Bulgaria. I participate in art markets in New Orleans and across the Gulf Coast region.

Tracy Hamlin purchased this apartment in 1987

What a great house in New Orleans! Upon arrival, Tracy was there to greet us and show us around the house and tell us about everything in the area. This house is very close to two really amazing breakfast restaurants and a few really fun bars. (All within a mile of the house) Since this house is 1 block off of Canal Street, you don’t even need a car to get around since you can use the street cars that only cost you 3 dollars a day! The house itself is so comfortable, very spacious and has everything you need. The first floor has one very large living area with a futon that is divided into two spaces and then a great fully equipped kitchen. The upstairs is where the spacious bedroom is along with the single bathroom. The other great feature of this house is the HUGE backyard with a patio to enjoy the outside weather. There is even a small fishpond that sets a tranquil scene to just kick back and relax. Thank you Tracy for having such a great space for my husband and I to enjoy New Orleans!

Beautiful lodging and great location

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming house, and neighborhood. Easy access to the trolleys which took us everywhere. Cozy bed, and comfortable bedroom. Great bathroom and towels-cool tub/shower. Full kitchen-though only used the fridge and coffee pot. We were non stop busy in New Orleans but enjoyed beginning and ending our day either on the lovely front porch or the lovely back yard. Tracy was very helpful and accommodating. This apartment was a little gem in this beautiful city. We are grateful we were able to stay here.

A lovely place in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I took Tracey's place for my daughter and her friend this past weekend (2/16-18) while I stayed w/friends in Lakeshore. Aside from the beautiful architecture and interior (I'm a New York girl not accustomed to Southern charm), the house was impeccably clean and furnished to have a great "homey" feel. We were fortunate the weather was warm and we took advantage of the backyard to just hang out with a cup of coffee or a glass of relaxing.

We took the cablecar, trolley, one day (a 5 min walk) and were downtown within 20 min.

So many things within walking distance or a very short drive- grocery store, pharmacy, coffee, breakfast (Buns and Biscuits- 5 stars). It is in a nice neighborhood across the street from an elementary school which made me feel comfortable.

I did not get a chance to meet Tracey (my daughter's friend did and said she was nice!) but she was attentive to emails and texts and responded quickly each and every time.

I highly recommend this property and would take it again in a heart beat!

Thank you, Tracey!

More than expected!

Tracy is an awesome landlord lady! The place was comfortable and exceptionally clean. And when I got with a stomach flu while staying in her place she came to my rescue!

Thank you!

quiet gem in mid city

  • 5 of 5

very spacious, yet cozy apartment in mid city. This property was very close to our daughter, which was a real plus. The garden was very cute, but weather prevented us from enjoying it. The bed was very comfortable, great bathroom with claw foot tub, super comfortable couches downstairs and fully equipped kitchen. This is a quiet neighborhood just a block off Canal St.

We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Tracy!

Apartment had tons of room and was very comfortable. The back yard was great with s sweet pond. It was only a short walk to the city cars which made it easy to get to and from the quarter. Highly recommend this rental.

Out of the Hustle and Bustle

  • 5 of 5

Great location for public transport, excellent restaurants nearby. Easy access to the French Quarter. Quiet. We only slept there!

Great for one couple......tons of room. Not convinced based on the layout (bathroom up and extra bed near front door) that it would work a family or a sceond couple.

Would definitely stay here again. Lovely, comfortable. The best sleep we'd had in days!
