About Owner

Born and breed in New Orleans and can't imagine living anywhere else. I live about 5 blocks from this house, spend my free time running races, cycling , hanging out with family and friends and enjoying the local cuisine, fairs, festivals and being a tourist in my own much to do and see. Come spend a few days with us and enjoy our wonderful City

Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why Owner chose New Orleans

Peacock's Rest is a relaxing everyday type home that's ready for you to come relax, explore, enjoy and make new friends.My house is a traditional shotgun style home where you literally walk through one room to get to the end of the house. However, the dining room, kitchen (no dishwasher) and bathroom are located at the back of the house. Each bedroom has a door that grants some privacy . There are 3 bedrooms with 1 king, 1 queen and 1 full bed. House comfortably sleeps 5 ( in beds), however, remember, there’s only 1 bathroom.

Gleaming hardwood floors, high ceilings, comfy beds , central air/heat.

I live about 5 blocks from the house and can be reached immediately .

The Carrolton section of New Orleans is a historic mixed residential/commercial neighborhood where locals have lived all their lives. Many houses are getting a complete renovation while others remain untouched for many years. Often renters or extended family live in one side of a shotgun double with owner living right next door. The neighborhood has a lot of small businesses, including barber shop, comic store ,book store ,eclectic finds, restaurants, Maple Leaf bar, fresh breads. The food and shopping make it a great way to spend the day and then jump on the streetcar to the French Quarter and beyond.

What makes this house unique

4 blocks to Carrollton Avenue street car.- slow ride to the French Qrt - can take 30-40 minutes but you get to enjoy the beautiful homes on St Charles Ave. Taxi cost you about $15 to the French Qtr.These places can be found nearby

Guestbook comments from the owner

A few friends and I stayed at Peacock's Rest one night during a long weekend in New Orleans. If we hadn't had other arrangements for the first couple of nights, we would have been more than excited to stay here. This home is beautiful and exactly as it was described on the site. Tom is a fabulous and extraordinarily cordial host. The place was very clean and had all of the amenities you could ask for. Tom had plenty of good recommendations and notes up on the board in the kitchen for our stay. We slept four in the house very comfortably - each with our own bed/couch. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to stay outside of the bustle of downtown. The neighborhood is nice and quiet with friendly neighbors. It's close to the St. Charles street car, so getting downtown is relatively easy. A cozy space and great hosts! I'd come back any day. Thanks Tom and Susan for such a lovely stay and for your hospitality.

Perfect for a girls weekend!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm getting married next month and all my girlfriends were coming from out of town for my bachellorette party weekend. Although I live in Metairie which is about 10 minutes from New Orleans we wanted something in the city.

Peacock's Rest was perfect. It was just the right size for my group. We were not cramped on top of one another. Beds super comfy. Fridge was stocked when we got there with beverages and other items. Enough space that we were able to have a few more girls over for a few hours for food and drinks. Tom and Susan were available if needed.

The house is close to grocery stores and banks. We also took an uber to bourbon one night. 17$ was the one way price but keep in mind it was an uber click because we needed a big car. Short drive to the riverwalk and we also did an escape room and port of call which was a short drive as wll. . The house was in the perfect location for everything we wanted to.

I already told my fiancée that this will be our new secret getaway spot when we want to have alone time and pay tourist!!!

Loved it!!!

Perfect weekend retreat for family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely comfortable at the charming Peacock's Rest and have absolutely no complaints. With a comfortable couch in the living room and three bedrooms, there was plenty of comfortable sleeping space for our family of 5. Good location close to the levee, Tulane, and the St Charles Streetcar. Would definitely come back!

NOLA Charm!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an absolutely delightful stay at Peacock's Rest!! The location was wonderful for our family, which includes two small children. Just a short walk to some great restaurants and the St. Charles streetcar - the highlight of the trip for our three year old son :-)) Tom and Susan's lovely shotgun includes all the comforts of home, and much more!! Comfy beds, plenty of storage and a kitchen with just about anything you'd need to cook up a fantastic meal. On-site laundry and front porch seating were much appreciated! We couldn't have asked for anything more in our New Orleans rental home and are so grateful for the wonderful hospitality!! p.s. College Inn, Cafe Maspero and Superior Seafood provided some of our favorite meals and New Orleans Coffee & Beignets was our daily breakfast spot (yum!). p.p.s. Audubon zoo and the WWII museum should not be missed!!
