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.

This property is a licensed and registered short-term rental with the city of New Orleans #17STR-09866

Convenient place to stay with a group

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fun and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the middle of the deep freeze and burst water pipes. Kelly bent over backwards to keep us informed in advance of the weather and to accommodate us. The shotgun house was fun and is well furnished. It is very convenient to the trolley and getting downtown. Highly recommend staying here. Thanks, Kelly!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I love going to New Orleans. So this time we brought some friends with us and her husband had never been to New Orleans. Normally we stay in a hotel when we go down, but we all wanted to be together and 2 rooms were so expensive. The house was so beautiful and you talk about spacious. The owner, Kelly is amazing she will answer any questions you have about the place. You would think being a shotgun house there would not be much room, but there is. The neighbors are great and so friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to go stay in New Orleans.

Quaint and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Fun to live like a native in a vintage shotgun house. Check the closet in the orange bedroom if you need an extra blanket. Fun back patio. Easy walk a few blocks to take the trolley. Nice little corner store. Just be sure the posted floor plan will work for your group. You'll need to walk through the bedrooms as the space is one room wide in this linear vernacular style. Kelly, the owner, is very thoughtful and responsive.

Very Clean and plenty of room for my 7 and could have slept at least 10

  • 4 of 5

At first when I pulled up to the property I thought what did I get myself into. The property was very nice but across the street was a little Sketchy. After the first night I felt better and did not worry a bit. We we’re in walking distance to catch the trolley to explore all of New Orleans and this was a great experience and I would recommend this place to all my friends.
