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 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.
Interaction with Guests:
I tend to give guests their space. However, I do live in the neighborhood and would love to stop by and meet with you or assist in any way. Please don't hesitate to reach out!
New Orleans city center is very walkable, but there are a few other ways to get from one place to another. Here are a few that I recommend:
Streetcar: The St. Charles Streetcar line is just a block from the house and can take you to the French Quarter or in the other direction throughout the Garden District and further Uptown. The streetcar is $1.25 per person (exact change required.) You may also purchase a day pass which is $3.00 per person all you can ride.
UBER / Lyft: Uber and Lyft are both great services in New Orleans. The city is geographically small, so fares are typically very affordable.
Blue Bikes: New Orleans has recently launched the bike share program, Blue Bikes. There are over 70 Blue Bike stations located around the city which makes riding from one area of the city to another very convenient. The bikes costs $0.13/minute and are prorated to the minute so you are only charged for riding time.
