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, but without the constant barrage of partying. We are close 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.

Lovely apartment, excellent location, incredible hosts

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place to stay in New Orleans for two months, and I hit the jackpot with this apartment! The owners keep it clean and nicely furnished, it had more than enough space for a family of three, good amenities, and is in a beautiful, quiet, but centrally-located part of uptown. We were just a few minutes walk to a ton of great restaurants, bars, and coffee shops on Freret Street, 5 minutes from St. Charles and the street car line, and in close vicinity to a number of great parks (perfect for our 3 year old daughter). Above and beyond though, the best part about this place are the owners Monika and Karl. They are extremely welcoming and attentive, full of great recommendations for things to do and see around the city they grew up in. They are quick to respond to any needs or questions, and are so open and warm that by the time we left we felt like we'd made new friends. We will definitely be returning to New Orleans and can't imagine staying anywhere else! Consider yourself lucky if you are able snag a booking here!

Fabulous Mardi Gras stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this nicely renovated and ideally located apartment on Napoleon Ave. Our gracious hosts- Monika and Carl- went out of their way to ensure every detail of our stay was exceptional -from the local tips on the best neighborhood restaurants to Monika's delicious New Orleans dishes catered for our group. As a New Orleans native myself- I highly recommend this home away from home for a uniquely Nola experience!

Updated basement apartment

  • 4 of 5

Good location for local restaurants and activities. A bit of a ways to the French Quarter, but if you're looking for a location outside the typical touristy areas it's a good spot, especially if you have your own car or don't mind waiting for the trolley. Monika is very responsive and helpful.

We could not have been happier with the place, but especially with the welcoming, professional and warm treatment from Monika. I would stay here again for sure.
