About the property

House, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths (Sleeps 6) Lovely courtyard

This Garden District location -- upper unit-- features a newly furnished large unit in a home off St. Charles Ave. (lake side) and street car line. Truly, this home is located in one of New Orleans most desired neighborhoods. Restaurants, coffee shops, streetcar stop, Mardi Gras parades, towering live oaks and much more New Orleans offers is right outside your door. The Elms Mansion, an event venue, is only two blocks away. The home is remodeled with an open floor plan. A large dining table can seat up to 10 people. Additional dining space is outdoors. The lush courtyard offers a restful space to sit and relax after busy days touring or attending festivals. Families are especially welcome. The unit is approximately 2200 square feet. We also rent our lower unit (388020) as a VRBO which families or friends may be able to rent at the same time.

Sleeping accommodations present several options. The master suite includes a queen size bed with a connected shared bath with bedroom 2. Bedroom 2 also includes a queen size bed and access to the bathroom. Bedroom 3 features two twin beds in a spacious bedroom. (A small room adjacent to this bedroom has a twin bed; if this is needed, we do charge additionally for our housekeeper's service--$40.) This bedroom includes an en suite full bath. A half bath is located in the hallway. A family would have much space to accommodate children.

Central air conditioning and shaded street and yard provide for cool and comfortable relaxation from summer heat. See "Amenities" for additional information.

About Karen Bertel

My name is Karen, and Mike, my son, owns this lovely home in the Garden District. When Mike was five, we moved from New Orleans and lived in Black Forest, Colorado, for almost 22 years. Now, New Orleans is home for both of us. I am a retired assistant principal, English teacher, and librarian. I help Mike manage the rental of his home and assure that guests have a positive VRBO stay.

Karen Bertel purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Karen Bertel chose Garden District

Our home is located just off the intersection of beautiful St. Charles Avenue. Restaurants and shops are within walking distance. At Mardi Gras time, parades pass only 100 feet from our gated entrance. Throughout the year, visitors can walk out to the streetcar stop which will take visitors to downtown New Orleans--Canal St. and Bourbon St., the Warehouse District, and Audubon Zoo and the university area.

I think what you will appreciate most is the hospitality we offer in doing whatever we can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

What makes this apartment unique

While this mid century home is located among historical, old houses, the unit has an open, relaxing feel. Some of the mid-century details remain--hardwood floors throughout the living/dining areas and bedrooms as well as black and white floor tiles in the bathrooms.

The sunroom, which overlooks the courtyard, allows for natural light to flood the living and dining areas. (*The sunroom is not listed as living space due to energy conservation.)

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and spacious with all of the comforts of home. Trolly is steps out the front door and conveniently located a short distance to the convention center and French quarter.

Lovely home, low maintenance, attentive landlord

  • 5 of 5

It's spacious but cozy, plenty of helpful amenities, and Karen is excellent with communication. The neighborhood is lovely and there's a trolley straight into the French Quarter, but also plenty of small neighborhood shops nearby. My staff and I stayed for a conference in NOLA and they keep asking to go back!

Perfect place for a girl's week

  • 5 of 5

We were in town celebrating a few things with all the adult ladies in my immediate family. The house was perfect for this. It is literally steps away from the St. Charles Streetcar line and also walking distance to the Magazine or Freret Street districts. The home had everything we could need. The beds were extremely comfortable. The water stayed hot, even with 6 women showering daily. There is no assigned parking for this unit, but we had no problem at all parking directly in front of the house each time we drove anywhere. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to enjoy with your family, much better than staying in separate hotel rooms. The host, Karen, was also wonderful. She was very quick to respond to any questions I had prior to our stay. We didn't have any issues, but she also made herself available during the stay in case we did. Overall, perfect vacation home!

Spectacular stay

  • 5 of 5

From start to end, our stay at this property was just what the doctor ordered. None of our family had ever been to NOLA, and I am so happy that we chose this property! The home is beautifully appointed, clean and a short block away from a trolley stop in the Garden district. There is a very nice patio in the back which we would have used had it been cooler. We had one very minor issue with the dryer outlet, but Karen took care of it immediately! She was extremely helpful, providing suggestions for restaurants, grocers, etc. Thank you so much for the attention to details which ensured that we had a great vacation.

Cute apartment off St Charles Ave

  • 5 of 5

Tidy and neat apartment with lots of room and bathrooms. Excellent quality beds/linens. Nice location 10 minutes drive from French Quarter. The owner was very accommodating. (Note: this rental is not appropriate for wheelchair/walker users as there are stairs and very uneven pavement stones to the entrance.)
