About the property

Private 3 Bedroom Victorian Shotgun 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 are 2 queen size European pillow top beds each in their own rooms and 2 futons. 1 futon has it's own room with a small half bath. The other futon is in the front parlor and also acts as the couch. Both are full size and best for children or single sleepers. We could accommodate as many as 6! 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 wonderful resorce that this city can offer.

Wireless internet is available. There is also a fully functioning cottage-style kitchen. 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 use 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-09867

Easy Access Property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was short and sweet as we shared this house with another family on our way to the Caribbean. The layout of the property was unique and enjoyable. House was 2 blocks from the St Charles Streetcar and for $3 we rode it as much as we wanted in the 24 hours we were there. Lovely neighborhood and friendly people who said Hi as we hung out on the front porch. The bar down the street didn't provide any problems with sleep. The sheets were so soft and welcoming after a long travel day. The only problem was that our stay wasn't longer. :-)

Charming & Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, great location. We enjoyed walking to Magazine Street and exploring all of the shops and restaurants. The backyard patio was a fun spot to hang out and play board games. Perfect for our family.

A great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot for a family or small group of friends. It is close to the St. Charles street car line which will get you up to Canal or down the line to Tulane. The place was clean and perfectly set up for our stay.

The house was authentic to the New Orleans feel. It was clean, full of charm and very comfortable beds,

Had very few conversations(email and texts) with Kelly but she was quick with a response, which was appreciated. Kelly, thanks again.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Our party of nine rented both sides of the shotgun and it was perfect.Kelly was awesome. We were in NOLA during the threat of hurricane Nate. Kelly was above and beyond in delivering water, fruit and plenty of flashlights. Thank you!
