About the Property

3 Bedroom Private Victorian Shotgun Home In The Heart Of New Orleans.

This is a spacious shotgun style home dating back to the early 1900's. Here in New Orleans we like our old homes to be quirky and pleasantly crumbly in all the right spots. We hope that you enjoy the authentic character that brings to your stay. There is a queen bed, 2 full sized beds and a queen sleeper sofa. We could accommodate as many as 8! You will be staying on the first street that begins Central City and is adjacent to the Garden District. It is a working class family neighborhood with many generations of the same family on one street. I lived in this house for 12 years and have a great deal of respect for the neighborhood's uniqueness and deep historical roots. If you're lucky, during your stay, you might catch a Mardi Gras Indian 2nd line parade. Although it's quiet in the house, once you open the front door you'll hear the sweet sound of a brass band coming down the street. During Mardi Gras time the Uptown daytime and nighttime parades are only 1 1/2 blocks from the front door! On the corner (Washington and Baronne) is Verret's bar and lounge. They have a full bar and back patio where music and dancing can be enjoyed. Occasionally they serve food such as a Monday night pig roast.

The Saint Charles street car can take you to the French Quarter or further Uptown to the Audubon Zoo and University Area. It is not heated or cooled, so please keep that in mind when dressing for the day. The city bus is also an option and will meet you at the same stop.
There are a couple of cab companies that I would recommend but are unreliable during our cities major festivities. Also available for your transportation needs are bike rental shops. If you are driving, there is free parking on the street.
Wireless internet is available. There is also a fully functioning kitchen with dishwasher. Although with all the excellent restaurants within walking distance, you probably won't be using the kitchen much. My husband and I love this city and its rich history. We'll be happy to give any recommendations or answer any questions you may have. We are also more than happy to hand over the keys and give you your privacy. We no longer live on the premises but are a phone call, text, or 15 min drive away.
Please note that when traveling in the summer, specifically July and August, that Louisiana gets extremely hot and humid. Private homes will be on the warmer side. My family and I lived in the home for 12 years and found the window units in each room to be more than sufficient. If you're use to ice cold air conditioning or have never been to a tropical climate than a hotel may be a better fit for you.
