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 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!

About Jeanne and Mike

My husband and I truly enjoy this business and consider it a labor of love. The house, built in the early 20th century, 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 here truly appreciated the personal attention available to them. We love this city...

Why Jeanne and Mike chose Lower Garden District

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Off street parking (a big bonus in NOLA neighborhoods), and the use of the beautiful yard and patio as additional living area while here. Excellent accommodations for those attending weddings at Il Mercato (, Felicity Church (, and Race and Religious (, all within walking distance.

Had a week in this apt. Had a great time sightseeing, plantation tours, swamp tour, cemetery tour, WWII museum, Art Museums, and Jazz & Heritage Music Tour. Perfect location for walking to French Quarter, Treme, and Riverfront. Enjoyed the food and weather.

Jeanne and Mike were great hosts!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this home! The owners were so kind and extremely accommodating! The home was very clean and had everything we could ever need for our stay in New Orleans! The location was perfect! The bus was directly across the street and went down town to all of the attractions and the street car was just a few blocks away. Uber and Lyft rides were always available and also a cheap way to get around the city! About $7-12 depending on the time and where you’re headed.

We did a walking ghost tour, swamp tour, hop on hop off bus tour, and visited the WWII museum!

If I get the chance to come back and visit this great city I will certainly be staying here!!

Great hosts in a great location

Jeanne and Mike are amazing, and staying here felt like home. A convenient place to stay. Getting around was so easy, bus pick up right across the street and the streetcar was an easy walk to St. Charles Avenue. Lots of local eateries nearby.

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Property in excellent location- quite area but close enough to French Quarter to walk/ride bike. Unit was spotless, owners are very personable and willing to share ideas & provide info. on places to visit & eat. Unit is also very equipped with everything. Park across the street is a good place to walk every morning. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting NOLA.

Lovely Hosts / Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay at Jeanne and Mike's place in the Lower Garden District. The location is perfect... a short walk to Magazine or St. Charles, and public transportation stops right across the street. The apartment itself is clean, comfortable, and has every amenity one could ask for. Jeanne and Mike are friendly, gracious, helpful, and kind. I highly recommend a visit!
