About Rob Steinberg

I have had a love affair with this city for 35 years, ever since starting Tulane in 1977. Three years ago, I returned to New Orleans to reclaim it as my home. I spent ten years in New York working in the music industry, followed by twenty years in Los Angeles focusing on work in the film and television industries. I was fortunate enough to graduate from Tulane University 1981 and fell in love with the food, the music, and the culture of The Crescent City.

Rob Steinberg purchased this house in 2012

Why Rob Steinberg chose Audubon

Just two blocks from the beautiful sanctuary that is Audubon Park and yet just moments away from the wonder and excitement of the Warehouse District's clubs, the French Quarter's venues and Frenchman St. And only minutes to Tipitina's and Tulane University. Why wouldn't I want to live here? Why wouldn't I want to share that with wonderful people looking for a wonderful place to stay?

What makes this house unique

I was lucky enough to purchase a beautiful 100 year old craftsman home October 2012 near to my favorite places to visit in the most beautiful city I have ever lived in. Pleasantly, my home is just above two apartments that I have taken the time to meticulously renovate, improve and furnish so that I might share this magical city with friends, both new and old.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We adored our stay at this spacious apartment and consider it our "home-away-from-home" in New Orleans. Outstanding location (walk to the fabulous sites and sounds of Magazine Street and Audobon Park, close to Tulane), charming accommodations, easy parking, and the comforts of home, i.e. washer/dryer, coffee maker, etc. made it perfect. We'll be back!

Great accommodations in a wonderful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a brief stay in New Orleans for 2 days and loved our visit. The property owner was very friendly and we found him very helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious and it was a very easy walk to magazine street and great local restaurants. We would stay here again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The home is wonderful. EVERYTHING is really luxurious, from the kitchen appliances, to the fans to the bath towels and the beds. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Stocked very good. Rob, the owner was helpful and even came to greet us after we arrived. AC worked great. A safe location and very quiet. Having our own parking space was awesome. You are close enough to walk to several shops and restaurants. We will definitely return.

Great stay at wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Rob's wonderfully appointed house. Very comfortable, tastefully decorated, fully stocked kitchen for the occasional meal (because let's face it, there are way too many fantastic restaurants around to eat in all the time). Rob had thoughtfully supplied all the basic necessities like kleenex, paper towels, toilet paper,laundry detergent, dish soap, etc. He was quick to respond to inquiries, gave great suggestions for restaurants and things to do in the area. The location itself is wonderful. Within a few blocks great restaurants from casual to high end. Would love to stay again our next trip to Orleans!

Comfortable Living in Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

Spacious ground floor 2BR apartment. Living area roomy and nicely appointed. Master bedroom is large and comfortable. Off-street parking is a real plus. The neighborhood is excellent for walks (Audubon Park is 2 blocks away), and reasonably good for shopping and dining (Magazine Street is 1 block away). The owner, Rob, is very helpful and friendly, and made us feel right at home. If you are looking for a space outside the French Quarter action, this is for you.

Nits: Kitchen a bit tight. There are two half-baths (one with toilet+sink, other with shower) that are also a bit tight, but splitting them does allow for multiple users. The second bedroom is a nice size, but probably not the best for a long stay (windowless and can be stuffy). We were there for 10 days, quite comfortably, with guests using the second bedroom one of the weekends, and this arrangement worked out perfectly.

Uptown New Orleans apartment

  • 5 of 5

The location is really excellent. It’s right by Audubon Park and convenient to Tulane and all the restaurants and shopping on magazine street. It’s in a beautiful quite and safe area. The apartment itself is very clean and confortable. Our stay was just for two nights so we didn’t utilize the kitchen, but it was well equipped. We would definitely stay here again.
