Why Tom chose Uptown-Carrollton

The big old houses of New Orleans, architecturally distinct inside and out, are the treasures of the city. This house is one of them. Lovely pool, Updated interior with classic details, beautiful open space and light often hard to find in Nola houses. The location is unusual in that it is in walking distance to many stores, amenities, the streetcar, a beautiful library.

What makes this house unique

Swimming, unique architectural details, wonderful, quiet, privacy, open space and light, yet minutes walk from restaurants, bank, shops and more.

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacactions I've ever had, hands down! This house was the perfect springboard to explore the city, and it was easy to get to the French Quarter, The Marigny, Audubon, Garden District (on and on) from the house. It was so bright, open and beautiful. It's very kid friendly and safe, which was a huge plus for us as we had 4 kids under the age of 12 with us. The furniture was new, modern and so comfortable. Not a lot of old dark antiques we were worried about. It was too cold to use the pool in January, but both side yards of the house are adorable. When we come back to Nola we will stay here again!

Gorgeous Home, Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with my family! We had such a wonderful stay! We were able to experience living in a Nola home, where we could spend time together as a family and experience life as a local. Your home is so clean, light and airy and with all the amenities it was perfect for my husband, myself and our small children. The location could not be any better! A one minute walk to the streetcar and some of the best restaurants in the city! What an amazing stay! We will be back!!!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Great place with all the amenities one would need! The place is well kept, well decorated and provided all the knick-knacks that you may forget to bring. Very spacious, very clean, large and comfortable beds, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The pool is an absolute oasis in the New Orleans heat, and the garden with the pergola is gorgeous.

The location is second to none as you're walking distance or a short cab ride to some of the best restaurants, bars, parks, and shops in New Orleans.

A group of us have come here multiple times for a weekend in New Orleans and love this place. The owners were incredibly nice, only a phone call or text away and always helpful with recommendations.

Unique historic home, great family with small kids

  • 5 of 5

This is a unique, historic home in a quiet Uptown neighborhood within walking distance of great restaurants like Upperline & St. James Cremery. Everything you could need is within 2 blocks. It is ideal for a large family with small kids or couples with kids, but this is not a frat party house. There are two queen size bedrooms - one with an en suite up a small staircase. There are two additional bedrooms, one with bunk beds. There is a small 1/2 bath on the main floor. The owner is working on a quaint side garden and there is a small pool with a baby gate that is very refreshing. The kitchen, living and dining areas are vintage-inspired, large and comfortable - it feels like staying at a friend's house. There is plenty of on-street parking and an active neighborhood patrol. You are steps to the St. Charles Streetcar and Latter Library. The owners were lovely. If you want to vacation like a local, stay here.

Everything we were hoping for and more!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife, and our 2 older teenage kids just returned from a week stay in this wonderful home. The house is in a fantastic location in a safe, upscale Carrollton neighborhood. It is only 2 blocks from St. Charles Avenue and the trolley stop, where you can get a quick ride to just about anywhere you would want to go. Within a very short walking distance are several restaurants, a coffee shop, a small but well-stocked food mart, a bank, a pharmacy... The house itself is spacious and inviting with excellent climate control, which was important in the middle of summer! The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and appliances. The furnishings are cozy and comfortable, with styles ranging from baroque to contemporary. There is an eclectic mixture of art on the walls. There are many bookshelves around with a wide variety of literary styles, from classics to post-modern treasures; novels, short story collections, essays, art books, on and on. We did not meet the owners in person, but in all interactions we had, they were friendly, helpful, and professional. We felt more like guests than mere tenants. And, oh, the pool! Surprisingly, given the climate, pools are not common in New Orleans, and it was a MAJOR bonus for us at the end of long days touring the city. The photo on the website does not do it justice. It was larger than we had anticipated, sparkling clear, and completely refreshing. There is a fence around it for keeping children safe, but it is easily removable if you so choose. There are lots of toys around to entertain small children, but they are well contained and out of the away if not needed. One previous reviewer lamented that the furniture was overly worn. Opinions can vary and I won’t argue their assessment, but it was not a problem for us at all. I’ll just say if you demand that your buttocks be swaddled in Ritz Carlton luxury, then you should probably stay at the Ritz. And personally, I think you are missing part of the point of New Orleans. But, if you want a nice comfortable place where your family can feel at home while away from home, then this is it. Given the location and the available amenities, this is a great property. Adding the extremely reasonable price, I consider this to be a superb value. I don’t know if we will ever return to New Orleans for another family vacation, but if we do, I already know where we will stay!

Glorious Stay For Jazzfest!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the 2nd weekend of Jazzfest and is was absolutely glorious! The pool and surrounding area was heaven after a hot day at the fest. The house is beautiful, spacious and the owner could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We walked 1 minute to catch the streetcar, but barely wanted to leave the neighborhood because it is the most beautiful in the city. Absolutely stunning!
