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

Great location, wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Tracy's place is just about perfect. The house itself is extremely spacious and everything we possibly wanted/needed was waiting for us. The lovely back yard offers a perfect respite after a busy day. The location, just one black from the Canal Street streetcar (and walking distance from restaurants, groceries, and City Park) offers car-free access to the CBD and the French Quarter. We definitely plan to return on our next visit to New Orleans.

Excellent location, beautiful decor

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with VRBO, and I was thrilled with everything. The decor is beautiful and the apartment is fitted with attention to detail. I loved the charm of the house, with its high ceilings, original fireplaces and wood floors, plentiful windows, and gorgeous porch and patio. The kitchen has everything you need, as does the bathroom. Two girlfriends and I stayed for a weekend, and we had plenty of space to spread out and great spaces to share. The only suggestion that we might have is to provide some extension cords for curling irons, etc. With just one bathroom, we got ready in different spaces throughout the apartment and couldn't always find a mirror close enough to an electrical outlet.

The location is excellent. With no houses across the street, there is ample parking and the street is quiet. We walked the one block up to Canal and caught the streetcar, which we road all around town. I wish that we had had more time to visit the nearby cemeteries and to take the streetcar to City Park. It is very possible to park your car and to use alternate transportation for your entire stay.

Tracy was very accommodating, allowing us to check in early with our groceries and communicating well prior to and during our stay. It was nice to know that she was there if we needed her, yet we felt like we had all the privacy we needed. She has loaded the apartment with books, magazines, and brochures on New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina, and the surrounding areas. She's also got a great supply of books, cards, games, etc. if you decide to spend a quiet night in.

I highly recommend this property and will definitely be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Shannon, A girl friend getaway to New Orleans sounds great. I have asked some of my friends to come down for a visit. I do get the extension cord suggestion. It is done. Come back anytime. Tracy

A great home in a great area

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for Voodoo Fest. Generally staying in the CBD or French Quarter, I was astounded to find this house so convenient to the park and at a great rate. I soon learned those were only a couple of the great things about this rental. Tracy was so amazing and hospitable and so was her husband. We were treated like friends and really, family.

The house itself had so much room and originality. I enjoyed meeting her dog Scout and sitting on the front porch. We rarely used our car, but had great parking. We walked to numerous restaurants and never felt unsafe or that they were out of reach. Such a great neighborhood and I can't wait to go back!

Thank you for everything!

Charming NOLA gem

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time staying at this lovely home! It was beautiful and comfortable, stocked with everything you might need, and Tracy was a wonderful host. So much better than a hotel, this was a fantastic home base to explore New Orleans from and use the trolley to get around. There were also many great places to eat or explore within walking distance. The home was clean and very stylish and added to the overall NOLA experience. I give Tracy and her home the highest marks! Stay here; you will love it!

Pictures don't do it justices

  • 4 of 5

The place was allot bigger then expected. Well kept and clean. It's a duplex very large house split in two which Is no biggie. You notice upstairs a glass door that would go in to owner side of house which she stated is sound prof but one night I had a girl friend with a toddler come over and unfortunately it was late late when the toddler woke up and my friend gave toddler a bath up stairs and the owner mentioned she could hear the toddler in the bathroom. So not so sound prof. Which made me think🤔 thank god I didn't bring my husband on this trip. If the owner room upstairs with the only guest room upstairs 😬

The back yard gorgeous and I mean gorgeous

But when she tells you put bug stray on back there DO IT I got bit so so bad the one hour I was out there. No where else on my trip lol

But that's not her fault she did a great job landscaping that whole front and back yard.

I guess with feeling like I had to be quite quite Once it turned night out of repect for her it was a little un easy but over all is the house nice YES was she nice yes....

Owner's Response: Natalia, I am glad my apartment worked out for you while you were visiting your people in Mississippi. But you misunderstood me when I said I heard a child. I never hear people next door upstairs. My bedroom is upstairs over the entrance to the apartment. Sometimes I hear people coming and going at night. No big deal though. Hope you did not feel inconvenienced. Tracy
