FRENCH QUARTER SECRET GARDEN

"Visit the city of New Orleans for a grand time out, but sleep at The Secret Garden for a night of rejuvenation."

DESCRIPTION

This unique 200 Year old property sits in the heart of the French Quarter. From the moment you enter the gates of The Secret Garden, you will feel as if you have stepped back in time to a tranquil paradise. As you meander down the path you will start to hear the soothing sounds of water and find yourself becoming less aware of the city noises. You will be welcomed and surprised as you approach a small fish pond and begin to get a glimpse of our tropical oasis, which we refer to as our Secret Garden.

OUR GARDEN

A magical place filled with many relaxing treasures. Ivy-filled walls, fruit trees and a multitude of plants and flowers await you. Something different is always blooming, from Iris and gardenias, to Figs and oranges, ready to pluck. The garden is always evolving with the seasons. Various fountains are scattered throughout. The elements of the garden welcome the birds, the butterflies and you. Here lives a magnificent magnolia that is over 100 years old. It provides shade to a large seating area (6+ people), that invites you to morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Smaller more intimate seating areas are also found throughout. At night the garden is spectacular. From the lighting to the warm welcoming glow of a fire. Words are not sufficient to describe it's mesmerizing beauty.

GUEST HOUSE

This 1 bedroom condo has French doors opening onto a balcony where you can enjoy the garden from a different perspective. It has a spacious living area and a large flatscreen television complete with premium channels. The long and wide sectional sofa will sleep 2 adults and is very comfortable. There is a dining table as well as books, games, cards, and quilts for enjoyment.

The Kitchen has granite countertops and a full size stove and refrigerator, as well as being fully-equipped.

The bathroom is conveniently located outside of the bedroom and has a bath/shower combination.

Why Barbara chose New Orleans

This property has many generations of footprints left behind. It has been standing almost as long as the city and has a legitimate New Orleans style that the city is known and loved for. It contains one of the oldest magnolias in the city which provides shade for the entire courtyard.

Great Location, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment to stay in. Located right in the French Quarter, walking distance to everything...Large apartment, and very comfortable. The garden area was great for sitting around drinking a few beers. We loved it. Would definitely book again.

Perfect location in the French Quarter. Beautiful secret garden to wake up to.

  • 5 of 5

Barbara was very accommodating. I loved the lights throughout the garden. The home is away from the hussle and bustle but blocks away from the night life. Great location.

Quiet oasis in French Quarter

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect, quiet oasis less than two blocks off of Bourbon Street. The sounds of the fountains and garden outside our windows were so relaxing. The apartment is fully stocked and very comfortable. And our hosts were so accommodating and helpful. We hope to come back for another stay in the Secret Garden soon!

Old can still be clean.

  • 3 of 5

While the location is perfect the property could have been cleaner. There were dead bugs under the foot stool in the living room which we noticed when we moved the stool to prop our feet on. The bathroom shower/tub has a window in it which I believe is a 6 pane window that had mold and mildew on the wood separating each pane of glass. There was a shot glass stand in the kitchen above the cabinets which I believe was there for decoration that had so much dust on it, it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. Also, there is no parking included with this rental so tack on an additional $30 per day to park 1.5 blocks away from the rental. New Orleans is an extremely dirty city. While walking down Bourbon street in the daytime, the stench of vomit was enough to make me sick. Also, the visitors guide strongly discourages anyone from visiting the cemetaries unless booked through a guide due to the robberies that occur. There are also numerous street acts on Bourbon street and if you stop to watch them and walk away without giving them a tip (just for watching) they follow you down the street saying "there's the lady that didn't give me a tip." I know the owners of the property have no control over what goes on outside of their property, I just wanted to add these issues in case anyone planning to visit New Orleans reads this. Think twice. Memphis is much nicer if you're looking for blues. One thing I will say is every restaurant we went to had excellent food so you can't go wrong no matter where you decide to eat. Just make sure it's not open to the street so you don't smell the stink while you're trying to eat.

A Mixed Bag

  • 2 of 5

The garden is lovely--quiet, lush, restful. You couldn't ask for a prettier spot. The hosts were pleasant. But the apartment itself is somewhat lacking, particularly given the high price. For me, a firm bed and crisp sheets speak volumes. In this case the bed is soft and lumpy, not firm and the sheets are not crisp. Little amenities such as bars of soap in the bathroom are absent. Finally, the owner would be well-served by replacing the beige carpeting with some type of low-maintenance flooring.
