About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, walk to food and shopping

Beautifully renovated, furnished, huge 2 bedroom apartment with exquisite finishes in safe neighborhood. Close to everything you want to do. 5 blocks from St Charles Ave streetcar! Nestled between St Charles and Freret Street for walking access to restaurants, entertainment, shopping.

Join us for the holidays, Mardi Gras (on the parade route!), Essence, Jazz Fest, or any of the many NOLA festivals throughout the year (French Quarter, Freret St).

Amenities: 40 in. flat screen tv with Amazon Fire Box (Sling, HBO, SHO, Starz) complimentary wifi access; quartz countertops, air/heat and stainless steel appliances. Secure electronic keypad entrance.

This property was renovated in June 2018 with new, sleek, clean concrete floors with a mirror finish and accented with beautiful, new area rugs. Lush curtains sweep the floors in the bedrooms, adding to the luxury and uncluttered feel. Make yourself at home!

A car isn't really necessary for your visit in NOLA if you are just touring around. We are in such a central area that an Uber or Lyft are often close. We are 5 blocks from the streetcar, which takes you al the way downtown to Canal Street/French Quarter and all the way Uptown to Carrollton. You can see all the beautiful St Charles Ave mansions without having to pay attention to the road! We are 1/2 block from a bus stop. There is ample and free parking on the street, unlike downtown.

About Monika and Karl

We both grew up in this neighborhood. We love this house and our neighbors, and it shows. :) We LOVE New Orleans and all things Mardi Gras! We bought a home (with this apartment attached) on the Mardi Gras Day parade route for this expressed purpose. The parades literally happen at the end of the driveway!

But that's not all there is to do in New Orleans. NOLA is full of culture, festivals, architecture and food, glorious FOOD!

You haven't had NOLA food until you've had it in someone's home. Ask me about catering for some down home, uniquely New Orleans cooking. :)

Monika and Karl purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Monika and Karl chose New Orleans

This property is close to everything you want to do. It's close enough to the Quarter for easy access (10 minute car ride), but without the constant barrage of partying. We are walking distance to Audubon Park, Tulane and Loyola, Freret St (with bars, restaurants, breakfast, coffee, etc.), St Charles Ave. streetcar... If you are looking for a real, walkable, neighborhood experience, this is the place for you.

What makes this apartment unique

Most uniquely, this property is ON the Mardi Gras Day parade route and 5 blocks from most other parades of the season. No port-o-potties for you! No long food lines or driving to and from a parade! Just stay here and relax. Book your Mardi Gras time early, spots do not last. Otherwise, we take great pride in the cleanliness of our home and are continuously updating it. Check out our new, mirror-finished grey concrete floors! You'll find modern amenities like USB ports, electronic keypad entry, a work station, neighborhood walkability, etc.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Monika and Karl was wonderful. The apartment was perfect. Nicely decorated and it felt like home. We felt safe and welcomed. The hospitality shown to us was amazing. There was 2 of us and we had ample space to move around. It can easily sleep 4-6 people comfortably. The location was perfect. Convenient to food and the trolley. I loved the fact that we could get downtown in as little as 12 minutes and come home to peace and serenity. The neighborhood is great and Monika and Karl

made us feel at home. I will definitely be coming back and staying with them again.

My sisters and I really enjoyed our first stay for our first time to New Orleans. The apartment was perfectly located for our needs and Monika and Carl were very genuine and kind. Their recommendations were a hit with my sisters and myself. We would definitely visit again!

St. Augustine, FL

Quiet, clean, roomy safe location in New Orleans!

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor apartment in an historic home is located on NOLA's beautiful Napoleon Parkway within easy walking distance of the St. Charles Trolley line to downtown. Owners Monika and Karl who live on the main floor are hospitable and helpful. The apartment is immaculately clean, quiet, and roomy. Ample visitor materials, internet, and cable (with an abundance of music channels) also are available.

Superior Seafood and Pascal’s Manale are extraordinary restaurants within easy walking distance (suggest reservations on weekends), as well as a range and variety of many other eateries. Free, safe street parking in front of the house is very convenient. Uber is also easily accessible (never more than a 4-5-minute wait).

Hopefully we’ll return to NOLA and stay here again!
