About the Property

2bed/2bath, perfect for 2 couples, featuring classic French Quarter balcony

There's no better way to experience the French Quarter than by living as a local in a historic property with all the comforts of home! Perfect for two couples or a group of friends traveling together, this home features a comfortable living room, a fully-equipped kitchen, a cozy office area, laundry room, two bedrooms, and two full baths. Best of all, this home features a classic French Quarter balcony on which to enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail!

One of the best reasons to visit New Orleans is its walk-ability to historic attractions, entertainment, and the best food in the world. Walk out the front door of this FQ home and find yourself only 2 blocks from Bourbon Street, 5 blocks from the Riverfront, and only steps away from popular restaurants, live music, shopping, and a streetcar stop. Coming to town for the big game? No need to worry about driving or parking -- you're close enough to walk (only 9 blocks) to the Superdome!

This 1,400 square foot condo comprises the second and third floors of an original Creole townhouse built in 1832 featuring many original architectural highlights such as 14-foot ceilings, exposed brick interior walls, a winding staircase, and the original wrap-around balcony (accessible only from this unit). More modern amenities include:

- Hi-speed internet
- 55” flat screen TV in living room + cable
- Large flat screen TV in each bedroom
- Plenty of high-quality linens, towels, blankets, and pillows to keep you comfortable
- Central heat and air
- Ceiling fans in living room and both bedrooms
- Electric heater in fireplace
- King-sized sleigh bed in first bedroom, a full-sized bed in the second bedroom
- Dining seating for 4

The kitchen includes a refrigerator, microwave, oven, stove, dishwasher, blender, toaster, coffee maker, full set of dishes and silverware, pots and pans, mixer, and bar utensils and glassware. A full-service grocery store and deli (Rouse’s) is only 5 easy-to-walk blocks away, or you can shop for food, beverages, and sundries at Walgreen’s (2 blocks) or any of several small convenience stores within a few blocks inside the French Quarter. You’ll also find a washer and dryer in the condo along with basic laundry supplies.

If you must bring your vehicle, there are several convenient parking options on the same block or across the street (rates vary), with a 10-minute loading/unloading zone right across the street.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT
Several days prior to your stay, we will follow-up with you to coordinate your arrival. In addition, we will greet you when you arrive to go over everything, and make sure you are settled and comfortable.

Check-in time is 4:00 pm, check-out time is 11:00 am. We are happy to accommodate early check-in or late check-out when available.

ACCESSIBILITY
While primary access to this historic home is at street level, guests must walk up to the second floor (main level of home) and to the third floor to the bedrooms. There are no elevators.

PETS
Sorry, we cannot accommodate pets of any kind.

GUEST POLICY
All guests must be registered. No additional overnight guests or parties permitted. Mature guests traveling without small children will find this property most comfortable.

ADDITIONAL AMENITIES
For your convenience (and a fee), we can do your grocery shopping in advance and have the 'fridge and bar stocked when you arrive so you'll have more time to enjoy your vacation. Send your list and budget ahead of time, and we'll do the rest!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Though neither of us were born in the South, we got here as soon as we could! New Orleans has been our home since 2010, when we moved here to retire and be nearer to two of our children who attended local universities. The French Quarter was our home until recently when we decided to move into a larger home to better accommodate our visiting grandchildren. We loved our French Quarter home, and know that you will too! We're still close by, though, and happy to make a recommendation or lend a hand if you need anything.

Why the Owner Chose French Quarter, New Orleans, LA, USA:
The French Quarter is a magical place, and staying in this home will bring a little of magic into your lives in a personal way. You won't find a property any more conveniently located to the SuperDome, the streetcar line, Bourbon Street, or great restaurants and live music venues that brings you the rich, historical flavor of the French Quarter.
