Why Susan & Tom Saywer chose Leonidas
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.

Charming House, stocked with everything you need!
We were so impressed with this house. It had everything! It had a great New Orleans feel, was walking distance to some delicious restaurants and a short drive or uber to the hot spots of the city. Tom was so nice and thoughtful and stopped by at the beginning of our trip to make sure we were all settled. He even arranged for a pack n play for our baby so we didn't have to lug one. We stayed here with 3 adults and 3 small children and were very comfortable. We really appreciated the beverages that were provided as well as anything else that was needed for the trip. I highly recommend this house!
Excellent stay !
Very nice property and very good welcome from the owner Susan!
Cozy accommodations in a great location
Nicely renovated house with comfortable beds and furniture. Good location within walking distance to great restaurants and nice street car ride to French Quarter. Very responsive and concerned owners. No doubt we will stay again on our next trip to New Orleans.
Perfect for a girls weekend!!!!
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!!!
Perfect weekend retreat for family 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!
Very nice place and owner!
Pro-service, cute little shotgun. Great owner, and cool neighborhood uptown!
