About the property

Beautiful historic craftsman mansion one block from St. Charles Avenue in the New Orleans Garden District. So close to Downtown, French Quarter, Superdome, restaurants, shopping and highways.

Walk along St Charles Avenue and to many of the cafes and bars, all just a few steps away. On the bus route and the St Charles Street Car line is just a block away.

This private unit consists of 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, over three floors. Configuration as follows:

First Floor: King Bedroom (green room)

Second Floor: Queen Bedroom (purple room) and 2 Queen/2 Twin XL (red room)

Third Floor: Queen Bedroom (sage) and Queen Bedroom (orange)

The kitchen includes all appliances. The unit is fully furnished, including furniture, high thread count sheets, cotton towels, duvets, all kitchenware, art, and much more. The unit is all about comfort, privacy, and relaxation. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush and enjoy!

This is truly a grand mansion. Many terraces, balcony's accompany this quintessential experience. Like many New Orleans mansions, there are smaller dependencies attached to the mansion in the Lake Wing. The smaller units have a separate entrance in the Lake Wing, away from the main Residence in the Mansion.

Directly on the Mardi Gras Route for ZULU and one block to St. Charles for all other parades.

All utilities (HD cable, electric, water, internet) are included.

This mansion is all about location, location, location!

Amazing Mansion! Great location in Garden District.

  • 5 of 5

Had a group of 8 of us staying together in New Orleans and this place was great. The Mansion was so cool, tons of room, perfect location, etc. St. Charles and Magazine street are so close (which are both worth exploring, lots of cool shops and good eats/drinks).

50th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We gathered our children and grandchildren together to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. It was lovely to all be together in the same house instead of spread about in separate hotel rooms! We ate our way through New Orleans and found this house to be perfect. It is a great location, a beautiful old home with a fascinating history, and Christian has made it very comfortable for his guests. Both the house and the yard show his great care for detail - beautiful flowers and trees in the yard - and lovely furniture - many antiques - in the house. Just great!

Beautiful & Original Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 enjoyed a fabulous stay at Christian's home for the first weekend of Jazz Fest. We were greeted by Christian at check-in and taken on a walk through the house not only to orient ourselves but to learn about the interesting history of the property. It's filled with cool, original features.

The house is exceptionally well equipped including everything you might need in the kitchen to super-comfy beds, nice linens and towels to Bluetooth speakers. The front porch, upper balcony and glassed-in sun room were great spots to gather for coffee or a cocktail.

The location was great - a block away from the St.Charles streetcar and also easy for Ubers (which are plentiful) to find. There's a convenience store just around the corner and many nice restaurants within walking distance.

If you have a group and are looking for a more authentic New Orleans experience than a hotel can provide this is the place!

Amazing house and location with the most gracious host!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a house that captured the charm of the city and the history of New Orleans and this exceeded our expectations. Several colleagues stayed in the house for NBA All-Star Weekend and all agreed that the experience here was better than a hotel. The amenities you would expect from a hotel were included but the character of the house is something that simply could not be matched.

We also had an event where we hosted a large party (50-75 guests) and the house easily accommodated everyone. In a weekend where hospitality plays a huge role in many of the events, many people commented that the house played a huge role in the charm of our event and that they enjoyed ours more than some of the typical corporate events of the weekend.

Our host and his colleagues were so helpful throughout the weekend and were there to greet us, help before, during, and after the event, and facilitated our exit as well. We had a great stay and encourage all to consider this for their next visit to New Orleans.
