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 unique shopping and numerous restaurants with Vietnamese, Italian, Carribean, Mediterranean, Ethiopian, 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 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 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 truly appreciate the personal attention available to them while staying. We love this city...

Why Jeanne and Mike chose New Orleans

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.

Roomy, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jeanne and Mike's made our visit to NOLA fun and easy! It is so convenient to transportation that we were able to get around quickly and easily. It's a wonderful place to relax after big adventures in the French Quarter or the bayou!

Absolutley fantastic trip to New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Over the past few years we have stayed in multiple rentals across the world through various online sites, and this property was our most favorite of all of them.

Firstly the property itself is fantastic, everything you need in terms of facilities, spotlessly clean, very comfy and very quiet indeed. So much thought and effort has gone into the space.

Secondly the location is just fantastic. The Garden District is one of the most unique places we have been to in the USA. Just so many wonderful houses and roads to explore. Its a wonderful area with so may great places to eat and drink too. The street car is a five minute walk away on Charles St, and to head into the city it would only be about 30 mins walk, or less than $10 in a cab or Uber.

However what made our stay so memorable were our hosts, Jeanne and Mike. From the moment we got there we were made to feel at home and it was a pleasure to spend time with them, they were such good company.

Hopefully we will return to this great city again, and when we do we wont hesitate to book to stay with Jeanne and Mike - and nor should you!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Jeanne and Mike make you feel right at home, they went out and bought us pastries the day we arrived. They helped us with directions and anything else we needed. We texted them a few times for directions, they were right on it. The apartment is located just a few blocks from the trolley and close enough to walk to most of the attractions. At the end of the day we really felt like we were going home. it was an added bonus to have a safe place to park the car. Very nice location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle...highly recommended.

Tucked-In ....Garden District Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Dear Jeanne and Mike,

We just can't wait to come back next year. We not only had a great time with friends and the Jazz Fest, but created great new memories!

We have done many rentals with VRBO over the years, and we have had many good ones, but this rental was special and at the very top of our list.

It provided such warmth, comfort, charm and convenience. VERY FESTIVE! Over the top amenities and very clean.....a very well stocked kitchen!

Just trying to think of all the things we liked....oh yes, the bed was very comfortable, and trust me that means a lot, .... I do believe, to all of us.

Coffee on the patio in the morning was sweet.

So you see, we will be back next year....if not sooner!

Thank you so much, Jeanne and Mike

Oh yes, walking distance to many restaurants and the St. Charles street car. 👍?🏻?😎?

Great location, comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in New Orleans and this was the perfect place to stay at! About a 20 minute walk to the French Quarter or a quick five minute drive. Quite a few resturants and cafés are nearby to eat at, which was super convenient.

The homeowners have excellent communication skills and their apartment is well kept and clean. Totally would stay here again!
