About The Owner

I was born and raised here in New Orleans. I am 53 years old, married and a mother of one son that is now 19. My husband is a woodworker and created a lot of the beauty around our home. I am a freelance agency broadcast producer of TV commercials, etc.

The Owner purchased this house in 1986

Why The Owner chose New Orleans

This property just has a great feel. Everyone loves it. It is in a great neighborhood that is very upbeat and fun. It is called Mid-City because it is located between Uptown and Downtown. It is one of the old New Orleans neighborhoods.

What makes this house unique

It puts you in waling distance to the streetcar line where you can get to the French Quarter quickly. From there you can transfer to the Uptown line as well. Close to Jazz Fest, VooDoo Fest and City Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Jazz Fest guests. They were prepared for whatever mother nature brought and did not stay inside and pout. They go out everyday and walked to where ever they were going. Great people and I hope to see them again.

Great location in Midtown. Large downstairs apartment and a huge yard that is dog friendly and very unique. Loved having our own space to relax in.

Great home to experience NOLA

  • 5 of 5

We spent a quick weekend in NOLA for Voodoo Fest 2016, and would have loved to stay longer. The house is well stocked with literally everything you could need. Awesome neighborhood with plenty of local food options. Walked to the festival at City Park, restaurants and the Street Car that takes you downtown. Kathy is a fantastic host, with plenty of recommendations. As a very experienced traveler, this place is a real gem. Highly recommend staying here.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was the perfect hostess. So perfect that she even came looking for us when we'd set out walking right before a rainstorm! Loved the apartment. Plenty of space with comfortable furnishings. The location was within walking distance of a number of great restaurants and bars and close to City Park. Also only a block from the Canal/Cemeteries streetcar line. We highly recommend!

Wonderful New Orleans Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Hirsch Hilton, we stayed there for 6 nights during Spring vaction and wished we could stay longer. Kathy and Michael are very friendly and had helpful ideas and tips whenever we had questions. The neighborhood is the best, friendly neighbors and lots of restaurants to walk to. Walking distance to the streetcar, which give you easy access to a lot of New Orleans attractions. We felt save walking through the neighborhood at night too. The backyard it the best, and the kids loved it, they are already begging to go back during the summer holiday!

Additional information about rental rates

Pet Fee $25
Cleaning fee $35
Refundable damage deposit $50

Location is 2 blocks away from the Canal Streetcar line that will take you to the French Quarter in about 25 minutes. Fare is $1.25 per person. We are also a bike ride away from the New Orleans Jazz Fest. The Streetcar will get you there as well. City Park is walkable where the Voodoo Fest is held. Also the famous cemeteries are right outside of the backyard. We are avid Saints fans and if you visit during those times we do host an incredible outdoor football experience. We have a Basset Hound at the house and would be acceptable to your pet if friendly. This is a great neighborhood with lots of fun local people who love the city and participate in most events. There are 3 bars within walking distance. We can provide bikes if wanted.
We love music and art and the house has a great feel of the local culture. We love to travel ourselves and really like being more on the offbeat track. Meeting the locals is what it is all about.
