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.

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

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.

Great location, Convenient, plenty of space for 4 people, relaxed decor.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay despite some problems with the place. Fans and air conditioning units that didn't work, falling curtain rod, falling shower rod, that sort of thing. Still, it is a fine place to stay and otherwise comfortable in a relaxed way.

Wonderful place at a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I couldn't ask for a nicer place and better experience. The location was perfect for our group with the house being half way between the French Quarter and Tulane University. The home was very clean, cool (air conditioning), and comfortable. The shotgun style home was New Orleans at its best. And most of all, the owners were very accommodating to our travel needs. I can't say enough about the place and our stay. If available - this is the place to book. Good luck and enjoy.

Charming home but neighborhood is pretty rough.

  • 3 of 5

The good:

-Home is charming

-Owner is very good at communication

-A/C works great

-Very close to a bar and convenience store

-Price

The bad:

-Neighborhood is pretty rough (Homes down the street abandoned, people out on streets 24/7, looks like high drug abuse, while getting bottled water from liquor store four doors down, I witnessed store manager chasing someone with a broom. When I asked him what was going on he said the guy was trying to sell crack in front of the store)

-Beds are not the most comfortable (Especially the one closest to the kitchen)

-We saw multiple cockroaches in the kitchen during our stay and one actually made his way into my suitcase (This could be completely normal for this part of the country, I am not sure. I don't really know. First time in the south during warm humid summer weather)

Overall, pricing was very reasonable and I did not mind the cockroaches too much, but this trip was with myself and 3 other grown men. If I come back with my wife and children I will probably find something in a different neighborhood.
