Property description

Experience the French Quarter like only the locals do. Spend your vacation in our luxurious and spacious condo, including private, street side balcony (a rare amenity). 1840’s building updated with today’s comforts and amenities. This is so much better than a hotel room. Minutes to everything yet quiet enough to really relax.

Enjoy watching the sun rise or set while sipping your favorite beverage on our private balcony. Our 2nd floor condo gets great breezes but also has central air, heat and ceiling fans.

The kitchen is equipped with full size range/oven, frig/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. There is also a Keurig for your use as well. There is plenty of closet and dresser space. Laundry facilities are available on site.

Although perfect for a romantic couple “getaway”, our one bedroom condo can easily sleep up to 6 comfortably via the king sized bed in the bedroom, queen sized Murphy bed in living/den area and a queen sized sleeper sofa also in living/den. Please note that our bathroom IS inside the bedroom so guests not staying in bedroom need to access thru bedroom. (OUR CONDO IS COMPLETELY NON-SMOKING, including balcony and building halls)
Other features include; luxurious linens, duvets & towels, large flat screen TV’s, cable and internet. All furnishings, mattresses, linens, towels housewares etc. are brand new 10/2014.
THIS IS A NON-SMOKING CONDO, UNIT, BALCONY and BUILDING. PLEASE do not stay with us if you are a smoker. Sorry, one of our family members is extremely allergic and in addition, this is a 170+ year old building so fire is always a concern.

Remember that this is a busy little 'City' and our condo faces the street, so you will have fabulous balcony access but there is very lite 'city' noise. We just installed magnitite/sound-tite windows which dampen virtually all noise but we still like to point this out. There are few truly quiet locations in the Quarter!

Our building is secure, with locked and gated access from the street, and is located a few short blocks to all of the major “attractions” that the Vieux Carre (Old Square) has to offer. Remember that this is an 1840's townhouse so our 2nd floor unit is accessed by large curving stairs, there is NO ELEVATOR.

The French Quarter is a true “walking city” and our condo is an easy stroll to all of the famous and infamous New Orleans attractions.
• 2 short blocks to Bourbon Street
• 4 short blocks to Jackson square, St. Louis Cathedral, Pat O’Brian’s, all the Jazz and night life you could dream of, and of course restaurants galore.
• 4 short blocks to Canal Street where you can hop a street car, possibly named “Desire” and head up St. Charles and thru the garden district, Magazine Street and on to Audubon Park & Zoo
• The Street car can also take you the other direction to see the famous raised cemeteries of NOLA.
• 5 short blocks to Café Du Monde – the world famous “Coffee Stand” which is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Here you will experience the sinfully delicious Beignets you always hear about. Get an order with a café au lait, sit and enjoy the local flavor. There’s always good jazz being played close by.
• No trip to the French Quarter is complete without a Voodoo or Ghost tour. There are many places around town to sign up, or review many different options at
• A carriage ride around the old square is also a charm filled event. Pick one up any time in front of Jackson Square.
• And a New Orleans favorite is a ride on the riverboat. Many options available and it’s an easy walk down to the river.

• The New Orleans French Market features several blocks of shops, vendors and restaurants. I personally recommend stopping by Loretta’s Praline Shop in the market for a Sweet Potato Cookie (or maybe 6). Once you taste one, you will be certain to go back for more!
• Frenchman street, just outside the Quarter, is a longer stroll, but easily walkable. Enjoy all of the architecture, gardens and history as you stroll down Burgundy to Frenchman street. Sometimes referred to as “the locals Bourbon” street, there are smaller jazz clubs, restaurants and galleries. Definitely worth the 15 minute stroll.

REMEMBER that the French Quarter is FLAT and a “Grid” so it’s easy to walk everywhere and difficult to really get lost.

(A brief French Quarter history lesson, courtesy of Wikipedia)
The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré, is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans. After New Orleans (La Nouvelle-Orléans in French) was founded in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, the city developed around the Vieux Carré ('Old Square' in English), a central square.
The district is more commonly called the French Quarter today, or simply 'The Quarter,' related to changes in the city with American immigration after the Louisiana Purchase.[1] Most of the present-day historic buildings were constructed during the late 18th century, during the city's period of Spanish rule, and reflect Spanish colonial architecture.
The district as a whole has been designated as a National Historic Landmark, with numerous contributing buildings that are separately deemed significant. It is a prime tourist destination in the city, as well as attracting loyal residents. Because of its distance from areas where the levee was breached during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it suffered relatively light damage as compared to other areas of the city and the greater region.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Having fallen in love with the French Quarter over a decade ago, we purchased this condo as vacation home and it is truly a dream come true. The charm, history and architecture of the Quarter paired well with my overall interests in building, architecture and real estate. The relaxing 'calm' of the quarter by day and the jazz and energy after sun down are the perfect mix. Being restaurant lovers, we have found no better place for variety, quality and 'spice.' Having vacationed in many of the Quarter's best hotels and properties, we tried to make our vacation home the best parts of all that we have loved in the past.

Why the Owner Chose French Quarter, New Orleans, LA, USA:
After years looking for 'just the right place' this condo fit the bill. Quiet location, steps to all the action. Spacious and updated yet historic (1840s) in detail. Full balcony - with walk out windows from the bedroom was a must. Small, quiet and secure building was also very important. We think its fantastic and we hope you will as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
* Realtor/Property Manager owned. * Realtor/Property Manager with lodging experienced local manager. * Well thought out and designer furnished. * All the modern conveniences yet historic charm. * Steps to everything yet QUIET location. *Full, Private Balcony facing South East (watch sun rise to the left) and sun set to the right! *COMPLETELY NON SMOKING UNIT/BUILDING...
