About Kimberlee Lauer

Aloha!! I am a former resident of Hawaii who fell in love with the magical city of New Orleans 15 years ago! I have renovated 4 houses in New Orleans and I started working on this property in 2011. I searched for a house in this neighborhood for 3 years. I finally found my diamond in the rough. I love my neighborhood because of the exciting new restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee shops that have been opening on Freret street in the past 6 years. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Kimberlee Lauer purchased this apartment in 2011

Perfect House For Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 girls stayed at Kimberlee's place this past weekend, and it was absolutely perfect. The backyard/pool area is AWESOME and the location of the house is great. We were about a 15 minute uber/lyft to the Quarter, a ten min walk to the St. Charles street car, half a block away from Freret Street where there was coffee, restaurants and shops, just great. There was plenty of space for everyone and we felt really safe. I highly recommend this house for both large group parties and family stay.

Excellent house! Excellent location with pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past weekend at Kimberlee's adorable 6 bedroom house in uptown New Orleans for my sisters bachelorette party! Safe, clean, and perfect for housing a decent size group of people! The pool was a life saver when it was sweltering and the cookies she left were the perfect touch to our welcome! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area! Getting Uber's was no issue and it was only about 10-15 minute to all night life/restaurants/bars. There were also many cute shops and good restaurants walking distance from the home. We had a blast! Thanks Kimberlee 😀�

Splendid with a pool! :)

  • 4 of 5

The pictures of this house don't do it justice! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, the house felt like home. A quiet, colorful neighborhood and a 15 minute ride from all of the action of New Orleans. I would book this house every time I visit. Thank you Kimberlee and Shinda! *fingers crossed* I'll be back.

Kimberlee's home was wonderful! Our group loved the neighborhood and how well appointed the home was. Kimberlee was very easy to communicate with and I would highly recommend to any other group considering booking her home.

My charming Uptown/University apartment is located in a great part of the city, easily accessible to the Zoo, Audubon Park, and the Tulane and Loyola campuses, and within a 10 min drive (or 30min Streetcar ride) to the French Quarter, Marigny and Downtown.

Walk to dozens of new restaurants and shops on Freret Street...

The apt features 3 independent bedrooms, as well as a full sized sofa bed in the living room. There are two master bedrooms which are furnished with ultra soft, pillow top queen beds and the third bedroom is furnished with two full sized beds. There is off street parking for three cars in the driveway. There are two bathrooms and one large kitchen. There is, however, no dining room, so you will likely be eating family style in the living room, or on the lovely front porch --just like you probably do at home, right? :-)

The neighborhood features one of the hottest restaurant boulevards in the city. In the past year we have had 10 new restaurant openings, and you can walk to all of them all from my house which is located a half a block off Freret.

The St. Charles Ave streetcar is 6 blocks south. There is a dog park and playground across the street and the neighborhood is very walkable. Audubon park is a 1.5mile walk and the Tulane and Loyola campuses are about the same distance.

Rates are higher during the Labor Day weekend, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, Sugar Bowl, Mardi Gras, Final Four, FQ Fest, Jazz Fest, Essence Fest and special events, so please contact me for holiday rates and availability.
