I am a native New Orleanian who lives in the same building who loves sharing his knowledge to travelers about our unique culture (food, music architecture...). I am available if you need any assistance but will otherwise leave you in peace to enjoy your stay in our amazing neighborhood.
Calvin purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Calvin chose Lower Garden District
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! Centrally located and only a few blocks off streetcar line. The building is a thoughtfully renovated historic building constructed in the 1850's. It offers guests the experience of the large proportion spaces 12ft high ceilings, 10 ft high doors and windows with the modern comforts of central air and heat. The balcony is a comfortable place to relax and overlook the streetscape of the park and Magazine Street.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is located in the heart of the Lower Garden District neighborhood where the historic neighborhood and the Magazine Street commercial shopping corridor intersect. Visitors can truly experience a local lifestyle while enjoying the comforts of a well renovated 19th century building. The property has an amazing balcony overlooking Sophie Wright Park. Off street parking is available if needed but not necessary due to close the proximity to many city attractions (WWII Museum, Warehouse District/Downtown, Convention Center, and Uptown neighborhoods). The property is within walking distance to the French Quarter. The owner, a New Orleans native, is accessible and a valuable resource to help enhance your travel experience.

Beautiful condo in perfect location!!
One of the nicest condos we have ever rented. Tastefully decorated, very clean with a fully supplied kitchen. We had plenty of space for two couples. The beds were very comfortable and each room has its own private, full bath. The outdoor deck was a great wine drinking/people watching spot. The living area has plenty of comfortable spots to sit and relax. You can walk to numerous coffee shops, restaurants, bars, art galleries and shops. It was easy to work with Calvin and he was very helpful. We will definitely rent again when we return to New Orleans.
First time in the Big Easy!
Immaculate two-bedroom apartment on the second floor, our first time in New Orleans and the place was perfect. I think our favorite feature was the veranda, either for coffee in the morning or a beverage in the evening after a day of exploring! We walked to the French Quarter from the apartment (maybe a mile and a half) straight down Magazine street. If you’re not a walker, Uber’s are plentiful. Calvin is a great host, you can’t go wrong with this place!
I was hesitate to give a review because we want to be sure it's available to us whenever we travel to New Orleans!
We loved the location, out of the Quarter and so close to everything. We enjoyed coffee each morning and cocktails in the evening, people watching from the wonderful balcony. It was a bonus to have an off street parking space available as well.
Calvin was the perfect host, helpful but never intrusive ( nice checkin text to see if we needed anything).
Tasteful decor, plenty of room for 2 couples, nicely stocked kitchen. We will most certainly be back, hopefully sooner than later!
Immaculate & Accessible
Beautiful & bright location in a funky neighborhood with great access to everything you'd want to do in NOLA.. Calvin was a great host - very accomodating.. Everyone in our group would highly recommend this spot.
I enjoyed hosting you and your group. Thank you for taking care of the property during your stay. I look forward to an opportunity to host you again on your next trip to New Orleans.
The apartment is beautiful with cathedral ceilings, lots of windows and designer decor.
Calvin was a fabulous host who made sure that absolutely everything we could need was available. The location of the property was excellent with lots of shopping, dining and amenities nearby. Ridesharing was easy to do from this corner location, and all of New Orleans attractions in the French Quarter were very close. I will stay in this spacious condominium next time I visit New Orleans.
Margaret, Thank you very much for your kind words and comments. I always appreciate guests who take such care of the property as you certainly did. You are welcome back again anytime look forward to any opportunity to host you on your next trip to New Orleans.
Exceeded expectations, host very attentive, perfect location
Stayed with my wife and a friend. Honestly completely felt what it would be like to live in the Big Easy, better experience then a hotel/resort. Beautiful place, nicely put together with attention to detail. Excellent neighborhood. We are active so walked a lot it was only a 30-45 minute walk to tourist areas, bourbon street, etc. and not scary at all. Great cafes and restaurants within 1/2 mile to mile of condo (on Magazine St.) cool balcony above intersection to chill at and people watch. When we did cab or uber, it was only 5-13 dollars anywhere we went. Lots of coffee options if you choose around the condo. Was so amazed at how friendly everyone was, everywhere, not once experienced any rudeness in our adventures throughout and we also went out in our Seahawks gear one of the days to go to the game, which was great even in a close loss. We would love to visit again, especially on Halloween again, and would want to stay at this exact same place!
Thank you for your kind review. I enjoyed meeting you on the balcony. You are welcome back anytime!
