About the Property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeper sofa; sleeps 4 adults. Check in-3p, out-11a

Did I say "perfect location!"? If you enjoy walking to explore new venues, this is your place. The French Quarter, Vieux Carre, is approximately one mile. 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.
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 unique shopping and numerous restaurants with Vietnamese, Italian, Carribean, Mediterranean, and Mexican restaurants to mention only 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 take 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.
There is a private patio entrance just outside the front door and plenty of space and a place for outdoor meals, cocktails, or breakfast and watching the sun rise.
The bedroom is spacious with a very comfy queen sized bed and room for a cot or two. 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 conveniently available 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, Warehouse/Arts District, WWII Museum, the Convention Center, Mardi Gras World, the Insectarium, 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!
Free off-street parking is on site.
Check in time: 3:00 p.m., Check out time: 11:00 a.m.

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I truly enjoy this business and consider it a labor of love. The house, built in 1920, is charming and typical New Orleans. We live in the unit above, so this is home, and we give it lots of TLC. We were married in the beautiful front yard (the picture above). Those who have stayed truly appreciate the personal attention available to them while staying. We love this city...

Why the Owner Chose Lower Garden District, New Orleans, LA, USA:
For the price, the unit is surprisingly spacious, and very well appointed. Mike and I encourage communication (texting, calling us, and emails) in order to make sure we have what you need.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Off street parking (a big bonus in NOLA neighborhoods), and the use of the beautiful yard and patio as additional living area while here.
