Property description

Welcome! The Okra Inn is a renovated Camelback cottage in historic Mid City area on the Canal Street Car line. Enjoy a 10 minute walk to Bayou St John and City Park (home of New Orleans Museum of Art), and a 15 minute street car ride to the Historic New Orleans French Quarter. Around the corner from the famous Angelo Brocato’s and many other restaurant options. Blocks away from many other famous New Orleans restaurants, such as Mandina’s, Liuzza’s, and Katie’s. I also have tons of insider knowledge on exploring the City!

This house is great for larger groups, but it is not a party house .

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: I am a born and raised seventh generation New Orleanian, and am the co owner of Louisiana Lost Lands Environmental Tours, we provide educational kayak tours of Louisiana's vanishing wetlands primarily by kayak. Prior to owning The Okra Inn, I was the producer and writer for a PBS television series that focused on coastal land loss in Louisiana. I received a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of New Orleans program, where I focused on issues of flood protection and coastal restoration. I believe the survival of our communities is dependent upon public interest and involvement. Being a New Orleans native, I offer an extensive knowledge of the area, and I'm educated in southern charm.

Why Mid-City, New Orleans, LA, USA:
The Okra Inn is a double, so it can be rented as a five bedroom or three bedroom place-both options offering total privacy for your group. (Note, the two sides do not connect through the interior of the house.) I chose this house because I fell in love with it 7 years ago- the stain glass and crown molding are hard to beat.It's a fantastic location in beautiful Mid City, convenient for the French Quarter, CBD, Uptown, City Park, Bayou St John, the Interstate and The Lake. And I'm located right next door and easily available for questions and advice on exploring the town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
New Orleans is a City for stoop sitting and chatting with neighbors and passerby's. One of my favorite recommendations is going around the corner to the seafood market and buying a few pounds of crawfish or shrimp and sitting on the porch with some beer. In the evening time they'll be plenty of folks on their way to the popular Venezia's and Angelo Brocato's down the street. It's a great way to people watch and even meet some locals. The New Orleans tradition is to do this in a laid back and respectful way-- the friendly neighbors do react to loud parties.
