Did I say "perfect location!"? If you enjoy walking to explore new venues, this is your place. The French Quarter, Vieux Carre, is a little more than one mile away. The pathway through romantic Coliseum Square Park is just across the street. You can walk through the magnificent oaks and enjoy the lighted fountain in the evening as you return home.
For DESTINATION WEDDINGS; we are located 1-7 blocks from "Felicity Church", "Il Mercato", and "Race and Religious", all popular destination wedding venues.
The famous WWII Museum, reporting the most tourist visits of any city site, is an easy eight blocks away and is a must see.
Magazine street, just around the corner from the residence, is famous for it's unique shopping and numerous restaurants with Vietnamese, Italian, Carribean, Mediterranean, Cuban, and Mexican restaurants to mention a few.
If you're wanting to use city transit, the historic streetcar is on St Charles Avenue just 4 blocks away, or you can hop aboard the city bus across the street from the property. All points of interest are easy to get to. We are an American Paris.
The largest Mardi Gras Parades all pass on St Charles Avenue, and the 4 block walk provides a quiet retreat from the noise and crowds when needed. Again, 'perfect location.'
The large front yard and swing provide plenty of opportunity for star gazing or just listening to and enjoying the sites and sounds of the city. We often view our famous "second line" parades, celebrating the bride and groom, as they pass in front of the property.
There is a private patio entrance just ,outside the front door with plenty of space and table and chairs for outdoor meals or cocktails.
The comment we hear from everyone is “how spacious it is!” The bedroom is large with a very comfortable queen sized bed and room for a cot or inflatable. The living/dining area has a queen sized sleeper and plenty of room for eating and relaxing.
There is a fully stocked kitchen for those who want to cook and sometimes a breakfast surprise or two in the refrigerator. Outside the kitchen door are a washer and dryer convenient for your use.
Linens and pillows are plentiful, and there are soft throws for snuggling up to read the available books (including a New Orleans collection), or watching TV. Cable and Wi Fi are included. Places minutes away by streetcar, bus, walking or bicycling include; Audubon Park and Zoo, The Aquarium of the Americas, The Insectarium, Warehouse/Arts District, WWII Museum, the Convention Center, Mardi Gras World, several museums, and, of course, the French Quarter with Jackson Square and the St Louis Cathedral.
Don't be surprised to see a horse and buggy on the street as you enjoy coffee or tea (provided!) in the morning. There are numerous tours of the Lower Garden District, including cemetery and ghost tours!
