About the property

4 Blocks to Oak St, Renovated 2 bed/2 bath in Carrollton, super clean & comfy

Recently renovated, this charming, fully furnished 2 bed/2 bath home is located in the Carrollton / Riverbend neighborhood of New Orleans. Original wood flooring, lots of natural light, high ceilings, and an antique claw foot tub let you know you are staying in a house that's nearly 100 years old. New HVAC, plumbing, and appliances provide modern convenience for a comfortable stay.

Inside the house an open plan living area and kitchen, perfect for conversation and relaxation.

Bedrooms include a master suite with bath and a second bedroom with either 2 twin beds or a king-sized bed. The house is perfect for a couple and two children, a group of 3 friends, or by combining the two twin beds in the second bedroom into a king-sized bed - the house accommodates two couples. City regulations limit us to a maximum of 4 guests.

The interior has been reconfigured to provide two separate bedrooms - the floor plan is NOT a traditional shotgun. There's no need to walk through a bedroom to get to the other bedroom.

Amenities include: gas stove, dishwasher, new washer and dryer, central a/c and heat, cable, and WIFI. We are very conscious about maintaining a squeeky clean home for our guests, including washing all bedding - including comforters and shams after every stay.

Casa Doo Wa is three blocks from the St Charles streetcar stop and four blocks to the famous Maple Leaf Bar with live music 7 nights a week. A five minute walk to shops and restaurants on Oak Street and five minute walk to restaurants on S. Carrollton Avenue. Loyola and Tulane Universities are a short bike or streetcar ride away.

Walk 3 blocks to catch the St Charles streetcar on Birch and Carrollton for a scenic ride past Tulane and Loyola, past Audubon Park and through the Garden District to the French Quarter. The ride lasts 40 minutes. Buy a $3.00 Pass and you will be able to explore all day on all street car and bus lines.

From Casa Doo Wa you are a:

5 minute drive to Tulane and Loyola Universities and the beautiful Audubon Park.

10 minute drive to Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

5.6 Miles , 15 minute drive to French Quarter

4.6 Miles , 18 minute drive to the Fairgrounds (Jazz and Heritage Festival)

10 minute drive to City Park (Voodoo Festival)

and 4 blocks to Oak St and the Maple Leaf Bar

About Megan Spence

My name is Jackie and I am a lover of New Orleans culture and music. I have been traveling to New Orleans for years, but decided to buy a home there in 2013. I live in the Northeast, where I am a Music teacher. The name of my rental property came from my students; my last name begins with W A. The nickname my students gave me was 'Wa' and many of the songs we performed had background lyrics of 'Doo Wa'. Therefore, the name of my second home in a city with such rich musical history is 'Casa Doo Wa'. I hope you enjoy your stay in this wonderful place!

Megan Spence purchased this house in 2013

Charming quiet comfortable updated

  • 5 of 5

This house is great- updated and thoughtfully equipped by owner with good books and games and even a Christmas tree. Very quiet neighborhood within a few blocks of Oak Street. Uber to town was easy to get. Street car stop a few blocks away. During a cold snap the house is very drafty but heater kept up pretty well and we were comfortable.

The house was perfect for two couples spending the weekend in New Orleans. Convenient location. Easy walk to the streetcar and local restaurants. Owner was very responsive and met us at check-in. We would definitely consider renting again.
