About Matilde Alberny

Greetings! We are Matilde and Gustavo, both visual artists. We came in 1999 to #NewOrleans for an exhibit of Gustavo and barely few hours later fell irrevocably in #love with the city.

Gustavo is a well-known artist and regularly shows abroad and other cities of the United States. His work (and mine) are permanently on display at Kezic Gallery in the #FrenchQuarter. You might want to organize a visit to Gustavo’s art studio in the Bywater.

We moved to New Orleans where we found a perfect mélange of village and city life with great entertainment. We are foodies, finding wonderful dining experiences in New Orleans is easy and are plentiful. We stroll while sipping our drinks (it’s “legal” here) and enjoy our architectural treasures in the afternoon, meet friends or chase fabulous #music at the many venues and festivals around the city. And most of it, if not all can be done walking!

We are owners and managers of our property. We like to personally greet our visitors if possible. We are attentive to all of our guests needs and inquiries but understand that we are not part of the planned vacation. We are available if needed.

Matilde Alberny purchased this condo in 2002

Why Matilde Alberny chose Warehouse District

We lived in the French Quarter, then the Lower Garden District and found the Arts District/CBD a perfect mélange of village and city life and entertainment. The spaces of our condo are airy and comfortable and the location couldn’t be more perfect.

What makes this condo unique

I, Matilde love to cook, and we are foodies. Finding wonderful dining experiences in New Orleans is easy and are plentiful. Finding excellent produce and products is a must and nothing can compete with our weekly farmer’s market. We stroll while sipping our drinks and discover new architectural treasures in the afternoon, power walk to the fabulous New Orleans Athletic Club, meet friends at a bar or restaurant or chase one of the fabulous musicians at Tipitina’s, the House of Blues, the Spotted Cat or DBA. And all of it walking. We are very lucky!

Great apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Everything you would need in this apartment for your stay in NOLA! It’s close to St. Charles for Mardi Gras parade routes and the street cars. So many restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, bars, and grocery store all within walking distance! The French Quarter and Riverwalk also close to walk to. There is a farmers market every Saturday am a few blocks away. The building and apartment is very secure. The internet is pretty slow because it is in a shared building. But overall, so extremely happy with our stay here! Thanks Matilde:) Can’t wait to come back!

The apartment is artistically decorated with unique arts that are done by the owners, who are super nice and accommodating during my entire stay. Excellent location with walking distances to coffee shops, restaurants and the attractions. I love the experience here and would recommend it to the others.

A calm apartment in a fun city

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment from which to explore all corners of the city, not just the French Quarter. Everything is within a short, pleasant walk. And there are some great restaurants, galleries, live music venues and museums right on your doorstep. The apartment is quiet, comfortable and stylish, with lovely high ceilings. It has all you need. The owner is friendly and helpful, and gave us a wonderful welcome. We relaxed and settled in as soon as we arrived. Not sure we could have asked for more.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Excellent apartment in warehouse district - close to everything in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

This 1 bedroom apartment is full of interesting art. It is clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic. The warehouse district has amazing restaurants and art galleries. Safe and easy to walk through the area. You can walk or take a taxi ($7), bus or street car to the Quarter or Garden District. Excellent place to stay. Matilde was helpful and friendly.

So close, yet far enough!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely lovely to have been able to wander in the French Quarter as often as our hearts desired, thanks to the proximity of the condo. Yet, it was equally lovely to be away from the party noise and cheers, surrounded by delightful lofts and historically charming buildings. The artsy feel of the condo with high ceilings and tasteful works of art fit perfectly in that decor. The neighborhood is very clean and safe (as is the access to the condo building).

Air exchanger/conditioning was a bit noisy, as can be Magazine street by night when you open the windows. And we would've appreciated more appropriate kitchen attire to cook meals "at home"; which was our intent when we rented the flat with a kitchen.

But there is no doubt that Matilde and Gustavo were warm, kind, caring, accommodating, available, welcoming and attentive; which was crucial to our level of appreciation of this colorful, vibrant and absolutely mesmerizing city.

Oh by the way, check out the Saturday morning Farmer's Market in the nearby parking bread we've ever tasted!

Owner's Response: Dear Maganga, I wished you have said something about the noise the first time you noticed, I would have it fixed.... but nobody has complained about it either after... I will have it checked anyway. And when you told me that our cutting knife wasn't too good, you clearly stated that it was no need to bring new ones (which I said I would that same day). I wish you had let me do it, you would have been more any case we added more cutting knives , among other things. A normal process, we keep improving..

Lovely Condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a great week here exploring New Orleans and attending Jazz Fest. The condo was conveniently located and an easy walk to everywhere we wanted to go, including the river, French Quarter and wonderful restaurants. No vehicle needed. Lovely decor, including original artwork by the owners, and all the comforts of home. Matilde and Gustovo are the most gracious of hosts and went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. We will definitely be back!

A village of trendy warehouse-turned-condos captures those wanting to live in the downtown area but not in The Quarter. The bells from the Old St. Patrick's Church, the warmth of it’s residents, the charming farmer’s market, fine eateries and shops are just a few of the treasures to enjoy.

The warehouse arts district was originally established as an active industrial area in the 1800’s that fed the important Port of New Orleans. After decay and abandon of near a century the art community and then hip residents started renovating, restoring and reinventing lofts and condos in 19 century buildings and lined them up with a wealth of museums, art galleries, restaurants and shops. Now is called “the SoHo of the South”. The Central Business District originally referred to as the American Sector (in juxtaposition to the French Quarter after the Louisiana Purchase) was developed within the same square mile of the Warehouse Arts District. Office and professional buildings for the old and new city defined the skyline of New Orleans then and now. A walk thru the CBD and Warehouse Arts District is a cultural travel experience that includes trade history.

Our condo is located on the third floor of a historic warehouse of the turn of the 20 century, a fastener company for the shipping industry and later house of the Swift Meat Packing Co.

It is nestled among the finest restaurants, bars and live music venues of the city. The bright immense windows gaze to the famous galleries exhibits at Julia Street Art District from the living room.

Within blocks are most of the museums: the WWII Museum, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center.

Mardi Gras Parades are 2 blocks away, a weekly farmer’s market, the Saint Patrick Church, the weekly free concerts at Lafayette Square are all within sight.

A visit to the Mardi Gras World where the magic happens and the Convention Center, the Cruise Ship terminal in Julia, the Harrah’s Casino, the ferry to the historic Algiers Point, all blocks away.

Shopping is convenient, high end outlet mall, Rouses Market, the Shops at Canal Place, (and the movie theaters in Canal Place, a theater/dining experience), and Riverwalk, Royal Street and Magazine Street all within short walking distance.

Walk 5 minutes to the French Quarter and Saint Louis Cathedral, the Aquarium of the Americas, Insectarium, Mississippi River, Riverboat Excursions, the Old US Mint and the French Market and 3 more minutes to the jazz clubs of S. Peters, Loyola Ave and of Frenchmen Street

The Orpheum, the Saenger and the Joy Theater, all recently restored and the state-of-the-art Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts (residence of the Philharmonic Orchestra, Ballet, Opera and Broadway touring productions) , tucked in the Louis Armstrong Park where local musicians regularly serenade visitors, are all within a walking mile.

The Superdome (Saints) and New Orleans Arena (Hornets) are 10 minute walk.

Nearby are the mansions and gardens of the Garden District, the Lafayette Cemetery, the Audubon Park, Zoo, & Golf Course, the proud Saint Charles Avenue, Loyola and Tulane universities, the tree-shaded Esplanade Avenue, the City Park, the largest urban park in the country, the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Sculpture Garden.

All of it accessible via the legendary charming streetcar, that lazy travels with its dreamlike rattle only 2 blocks away.
