Overview

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 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.

Beautiful shotgun home

  • 4 of 5

Pictures did this home justice! Close to St Charles street car just a short trip to the French Quarter. Owner is welcoming and helpful we were here durning a storm and she kept in touch with us! Each room is different love all the touches and comfortable beds! Very nice Bakery cafe on St Charles just a few blocks away corner store you can see from the front porch. We found some nice restaurants on Magazine street about a 15 minute walk away we really liked Amici and I think the other was the Red Slipper and a good burger place along there too! Just a word of warning leave those high heels at home the sidewalks have a lot of roots pushing them up so flats are a must! A walk around the backs streets is a must to see the beautiful homes! All the people that live on the street are very friendly and helpful we spent a lot of time sitting on the front porch. Thanks for a great stay!

Great stay, living like a local

  • 5 of 5

There are few ways to get into a city "no reservations" style. Maybe you have a friend or aunt or someone who has an extra room in NOLA. I don't. My family is all in the north. But other than knowing someone local, how do you really get a chance to see and feel a place for what it is? Simple answer: Stay here. Really, it's that simple. Go get some shrimp and grits; cook some up even> I saw more than one cookbook on the bookshelves. Then make yourself a pink lady or gin and tonic and sit on the porch and watch the people go by (there was a book about mixing drinks, too --just saying). The french quarter is less than 10minutes away on the trolley ($3 daily fare beats my city by a landslide), all of the shops and cafes of Magazine St are a daydream walk away.

A year ago my daughter told me she wanted to go to New Orleans for her 16th birthday. I died of joy inside because I've been waiting for the right time to go. (My kid, I love her, she's great at this travel buddy stuff). I liked looking for hotels. It's one of the most intriguing places in the country. There are creepy hotels, historic hotels, boutique hotels, ect. This property had me at "shot gun style." It's a unique and historic style found literally only in New Orleans. There is a culture to it, a way of living. You should rent it just to find yourself sitting in the front bedroom trying to imagine how you would interact with your parents and siblings if you all lived in this house. That, my friends, is how you experience a place as it is. And I'm not sure my family would have been anything like we are (maybe not a bad thing) if we had lived this way.

The owners here are kind and quiet. Helpful, but not hovering. The house is clean and cozy and shabby chic in all the right ways. We had a great stay, laughed on the porch with neighbors, and walked everywhere. I'll go again, as many times as I can. It's not hard to find a reason to visit this great city.

True New Orleans flare

  • 5 of 5

The place was great, Kelly the owner was very nice and accommodating and also answered any questions we had recording the house, restaurants she recommended and other activities. The Neighbourhood was pretty cool and the house definitely had a New Orleans type feel, and ewa very clean. Was very close to st. Charles and also Magazine Street where there is a ton of restaurants and bars to go to. We really had a good time and I recommend the place. Thank you Kelly, Frank

Great Stay In NOLA

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay on Baronne. House was roomy, very clean and was well stocked with kitchen utensils and linens. Kelly provided great instructions for check in and provided contact numbers for any problems, which we never needed. Great location just off St. Charles and a trolley stop. Only problem we had was close parking, which was usually hard to find because of Verret's bar just down the street. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to any friends.
