This is a classic New Orleans shot gun home in the historic section of Mid-City, New Orleans; 12 blocks from central downtown (or a 10 minute streetcar ride) and one house from the Lafitte Greenway which is a walking/biking path that stretches all of the way from City Park to Downtown. There are hip restaurants and bars within walking distance. The streetcar is 2 blocks away, and you can bike to any part of town from here. We're right off of the Endymion route for Mardi Gras! You can walk to Jazz Fest, Bayou Bugaloo, and Voodoo Fest from here (we do, and it's a nice walk on the bayou to the fests). You can also walk, bike, or take the streetcar to City Park to hang out, exercise, or to go one of the many festivals that happen there or the New Orleans Museum of Art or to Morning Call at any time of the day for a classic beignet and café au lait. If you need something from the grocery, we're very close to a Whole Foods, Winn Dixie, and Rouses (local chain).
The home itself is 100+ years old. It has tall, 12' ceilings and hardwood floors throughout and ends with a sun room that overlooks a private courtyard. The sun room is a great room for drinking your coffee in the morning and getting a beautiful start to your day. It has wall-to-wall windows and plush seating, which makes it a very cozy space. The apartment is also well equipped with everything that you'll need to have the most comfortable stay; from coffee to shampoo to extra pillows. There are two bedrooms with Queen size beds in each, and each has a large closet for you to store your things while you stay. There's an office room that has a desk, bookcase full of books for you to peruse, and a comfy, pillow-top futon which makes the office also function as a 3rd bedroom. One of the bedrooms has its own private half-bath! The living room has a flat screen TV that is wi-fi enabled, and plugged into Netflix for your viewing pleasure. Though I doubt you came to New Orleans to watch TV.
There's one off-street parking spot in front of the apartment. This is an upstairs apartment, which provides evermore privacy.
I live next door in the other apartment. If there's anything that you need I'm just a knock away. Otherwise, I understand that this is your vacation, so please enjoy yourself! We look forward to hosting you in New Orleans!
1. There's a reserved parking spot for the apartment right in front of the apartment itself.
2. I don't have a problem with an early check in, so long as someone is not checking out the same day you're checking in. This insures the housekeeper has enough time to clean before you arrive. Please first get in touch with me if you want to check in early.
3. There is absolutely no smoking allowed in the house. The sun room is a part of the house, so there is no smoking allowed in there as well.
4. There are no pets allowed on the property.
