What you should know. This neighborhood like most in the city of New Orleans is culturally diverse, up and coming, and in a state of gentrification. In short, you must be comfortable with being exposed to all walks of life.

Also it is important to understand the lay out of the house. It is a classic New Orleans architecture style known as a Shotgun House. Meaning you walk through each room to get to the next. There are no separate hallways.

Bonus. World famous street artist Banksy has a well known piece The Umbrella Girl on a building right across the street.

About Jesse

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Jesse purchased this apartment in 2014

Safe and friendly residential neighborhood.

What makes this apartment unique

Historic home with all the right updates while keeping all the important vintage features.

Totally awesome find!

  • 5 of 5

That is what the others in our group kept saying over and over. They were thrilled with this house that we found for our stay in New Orleans over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend! The house was absolutely beautiful, we loved the outdoor courtyard area to sit and visit. Lida, the neighbor was such a great person to sit and visit with as well. Very welcoming, gave us great recommendations and stories about her time in New Orleans. The house was situated very close to everything we wanted to see, just a short walk to the park and the French Quarter as well. And most importantly to us was we felt the walk was safe as well. As anyone who visits another city knows, a short walk means nothing if you don't feel safe along the way, and we absolutely did. We've discussed hopefully making this a yearly tradition and would without question check this house to stay here again. Thanks Jesse I appreciate the quick communications with me as well.

Great Location! I would absolutely come back and stay at this house. The owner is extremely helpful, and you would be nit-picking if you had anything negative to say. Everything is very upfront and honest as to what you are getting when staying at this residence.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a long weekend with friends. We were in town for a New Orleans Saints football game. The house is as advertised. 2 beds and the pull out couch. The kitchen was fully stacked with any supply you would need. Had a great back porch. The house is on the back half of a nice neighborhood. Bars and stores in walking distance, never had any issue with safety.

The end of Bourbon street was a 10-15 walk, which was fine. We walked most of the time, otherwise it was an easy Uber/Lyft ride. Would def stay there again!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

6 of my friends and I stayed in the Smile house over Memorial Weekend and had a great experience. Jesse always responded very quickly to me, and was incredibly helpful. As there were 7 of us, we doubled up in the beds and pull out sofa, but there was more than enough sleeping space and it didn't feel cramped. It's a two unit house, and the next door neighbor is incredibly friendly and had a lot of recommendations for us.

The house is within walking distance of tons of great things (easily got to Frenchmen St to listen to live music). Jesse also included a book of New Orleans recommendations. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd year in a row staying at this house. It's always been extremely clean and everything has always been in working order. I love the location and enjoy walk to the Quarter and Bourbon as it's not very far away. Jesse is pleasure as well and is available anytime if we need anything or have any questions. The back patio is my favorite feature of the house as it's private and quite large. Seeing as I keep coming back... it goes without saying that I highly recommend staying here. :)
