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 European pillow top beds and a queen sleeper sofa. 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 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. Uber is also a great service this city can offer.
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 used to ice cold air conditioning or have never been to a tropical climate than a hotel may be a better fit for you.
This property is a licensed and registered short-term rental with the city of New Orleans #17STR-09866

Great home to stay in for a little local flavor.
Home was as described and what we hoped for. There was more room then I anticipated for the six of us, never felt cramped or crowded. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Short walk to the streetcar was great. Kelly was very quick to respond to my text with the few questions I had. I would recommend the home to anyone looking have an experience with the locals.
The house was a classic New Orleans house and was great for the amount of people we had and not too far from the French Quarter. However, the shower is super tiny.
Great house, great location!
Wonderfully located near trolley, restaurants, bars, convenience stores, etc. Home was nicely kept. Hostess Kelly was great. Would definitely make a return to this VRBO! Overall great visit!
We had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. Parking was a challenge due to the fact a movie was being made on the street. We had to park several blocks away.
Great space with nice outdoor space!
We really enjoyed this shotgun house! The beds were super comfortable. The place was clean and centrally located. The outdoor space was great. I highly recommend it.
Convenient place to stay with a group
This was the perfect place for our group of 7 that was in town for a conference. It is much bigger than the pictures suggest and it was located in a quiet neighborhood. We could get anywhere in New Orleans with a quick uber ride, including the convention center, the quarter, and Frenchmen Street. Kelly made it easy to get in and out and provided a combination lockbox so anyone in our group could enter at anytime instead of figuring out who should carry the key. Overall, it was a great trip and Kelly's place was perfect for us.
