About Lisa Stutz

Although we were not born here we fell in love with the city (and each other) in 2002 and decided to make this home. I am originally from Michigan and my husband is from Germany. I work in the luxury hotel industry and our shared passion outside of work is renovating homes. I thought that this condo would be a perfect home to share with those visiting our city. As a hospitality professional, I worked to put all the touches that would make sure you had everything you need for an unforgettable vacation. I live only a few miles away so I am easily accessible should you need anything during your visit.

Lisa Stutz purchased this condo in 2014

Why Lisa Stutz chose Central City/Garden District

Of all our properties, we chose this property to share with travelers because of the location. One of the great things about New Orleans is being able to walk to amazing venues with a cocktail in hand just outside your front door. Not to mention the parades! You are only 4 blocks from St. Charles for all the Mardi Gras parades and just steps from where the Irish Parade rolls on Magazine. With the street car and hop on/hop off bus just blocks away New Orleans is truly your oyster to enjoy. Unique to this condo is a private gated entrance just for your unit and a private patio. The open floor plan and modern feel made it a perfect home to display some of our favorite artwork and thus The Artist Loft was born. I know you will love it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

New Orleans is all about walking and outdoor living, which is why you will enjoy our location and outdoor patio. We also love the granite floors, built in cabinets, and walk in closet all of which make such a great use of space. We tried to think of all the things you might need during your stay for a perfect vacation from luggage racks and a hair dryer to a cocktail shaker and to-go cups. Rest assured you only need to bring your suitcase and toiletries to this vacation home!

Wonderful, clean place in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! The condo was so clean, it's near a fantastic coffee shop, and Lisa was super responsive to any questions. We were there on a rainy weekend, and she helped us sort out the heater situation right away so we could figure out how to warm up the apartment. Would definitely stay there again!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location. Easy street parking. Few steps to Garden District shopping and restaurants. Beautifully appointed space. Comfortable, quiet, easy to locate and nice residential neighborhood parking. Would happily return. Dinner at Coquette was fabulous, dnot miss it! The Artist’s Loft owner, Lisa, was responsive and a great professional. We were grateful she shares this must book location.

Handicap Accessible, Outstanding Location, Clean, Responsive Host

  • 5 of 5

Would stay here again. Lisa was an immensely kind, responsive, professional host. We hit a minor inconvenience and she was quick to resolve it. Everything here was exactly as described and pictured in the photos. The location is outstanding! Right between two major transit routes, one block from Magazine St and the #11 bus stop that will take you straight to French Quarter or up & down Magazine clear to Audubon and beyond. On the other side was the St. Charles Trolley which takes you up and down that gorgeous street. Felt safe here!

Nice location and clean, but $$$

  • 3 of 5

It's a lovely location in the heart of the Garden District. It was a nice touch having a bottle of pinot waiting for us. This would be great if you really needed a kitchen and full set up. We were just there to sleep and shower. We ended up paying a lot for 2 nights with all the extra charges from VRBO. The only disappointment was we weren't allowed to leave our bag for couple hours after check out because "the cleaners aren't comfortable." So instead we had the discomfort of dragging a large bag around town for 3 hours. Turns out, many hotels along St. Charles would have been cheaper and more accommodating. Oh well.

I host 2 online vacation rentals in SF and in Tahoe, and focus more on the comfort of my guest vs. my cleaner's wishes.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your time to share your review. When possible we always schedule our housekeeper the day prior or after a reservation in order to accommodate an early check in (as we offered prior to your stay) or late check out. Unfortunately, when we have guests arriving the same day as departure it is simply not possible for us to accommodate a late check out. We pride ourselves in providing an immaculately clean condo for each and every one of our guests which requires at least 3 hours to accomplish at which time we are unable to have a former guest’s valuables unattended in the unit. We understand there are many options at various price points and corresponding quality/location levels in the city. While this may have not been the right fit for your needs and budget, all of our other reviews reflect the value our guest’s felt the condo location and amenities have afforded them during their stays with us and the genuine care we have shown them before and during their stay.

Conveniently located, spotlessly clean and a very accomdating owner. We were first time visitors to the Big Easy and we couldn't be more happy to have found this unit. Everything you need is there. Instructions for everything from internet access to using the coffee maker were very precise. Loads of reccomendations from the owner in the house manual for eateries, pubs etc. Beautiful home to stay in. Future guests won't be disappointed!

Car: not necessary

Enjoy being located in the heart of the Garden District just a few steps from Magazine Street and only four blocks to St. Charles Street where the streetcar will take you straight to the French Quarter.

Magazine Street has is a perfect location for sightseeing, shopping or a pub crawl. With a large collection of restaurants to choose from you can sample the local fare from Po-Boys to James Beard Award winning restaurants all in walking distance.

A short stroll of 4 blocks will bring you to St. Charles Avenue to pick up the Street Car to the French Quarter, which is located only 2 miles from the home. You can spend the day shopping in antique shops, art Galleries, or enjoy a paddle boat ride on the Mississippi and of course, have a number of cocktails on Bourbon Street. Another option is to walk two blocks to the hop on/hop off bus pick up on Magazine which will provide transportation to various parts of the city combined with a tour.

This is local living where you take your roadie (to-go cup cocktail) and stroll through the Garden District taking in the amazing smells of gardenias and jasmine while enjoying the breathtaking architecture of the historic mansions. Every few steps there is a unique restaurant, definitely a bar, and always friendly and colorful locals to chat with. So come on down, make yourself at home and as we would say Laissez les bons temps rouler (Let the good times roll)!
