The Guest House is 4 blocks from the Canal Street streetcar line that will connect guests to the French Quarter or Downtown and from there to Uptown, or up to the historic cemeteries, as well as City Park.

Loved Bayou Guest House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at Bayou Guest House while we were in New Orleans for a family wedding. Not only was the home beautiful, but it was clean and so convenient to everything. My favorite part of the trip was drinking coffee on the porch every morning. Within 24 hours from returning home my daughter was calling asking for the link to share Bayou Guest House with a friend. Can't wait until our next visit!!!

Hidden Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for Tulane Graduation for a group of six family members. I looked at places closer to campus but was attracted to the space and amenities here and I'm so glad we chose it. This is an oasis in the midst of all the vibrancy that is New Orleans. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious, comfortable property. Everybody had their own private space and the gathering areas including the kitchen, family room, game room and porch were a perfect place to hang out and socialize. Having Parkway Bakery across the street means a Strawberry Abita or a Po'Boy are just steps away. A wonderful walk up the Bayou and you arrive at City Park. It was easy to get back to Tulane and downtown and the parking spot came in handy. We were there during the Boogaloo Festival which provided endless entertainment just watching from the balcony. Kristi is the ultimate host providing all the info you would ever need as well as coffee and a few goodies in the kitchen when you arrive. I am already trying to come up with a way to have to come here again!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment from the moment we stepped inside. Always a nice calm welcoming place to come home to after a long day at the Jazz Festival. We shared this property with 2 other couples and it's perfect--each couple had their own bedroom and private bathroom and there is plenty of space in the apartment to spread out. We spent a lot of time out on the porch people and bayou watching. The extra game room is also great for late night unwinding too. Kristi, the owner is super sweet and very accessible anytime. My husband and I had to extend our stay by a day last minute, due to an ER visit, and we were able to just come back to the apartment again no problem. A nice one mile walk to the Jazz Fest, either through neighborhoods or along the bayou. And having the Parkway Bakery right across the street is key--we ate there almost everyday--amazing Po-Boys! An easy walk to the trolley to go to the French Quarter and the Uber drivers there are great too! No need for a car really--we only used ours to go to the grocery store. All in all a great place and location and we will be back!

Great place for a NOLA getaway

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in New Orleans before Katrina for many years, we knew the area and attractions, but to be here at the Bayou Guest House in the middle of it again was just awesome - Strolling up the bayou in the late morning to Esplanade and/or down Grand Route St John, a glass of wine and a cheese plate at Swirl, a race at the Fairgrounds, brunch at Cafe Degas, a drive thru City Park to see the Christmas "Festival of Lights"...easy and cheap Uber rides Uptown for a special dinner at Clancy's (Sean Payton was sitting the next table over from us), and downtown to take my 82 yr old veteran dad to the WWII museum and through the French Quarter, picking up a Monsoon at Port of Call on the way - a streetcar ride back Uptown to Audubon Park and then to Cooter Browns for some cold oysters and the Saints game, and back to this beautiful property to relax, grill on the porch, watch a movie...We never did get to visit the Parkway Tavern right across the street but we'll put that on the list for next time.

The property was pleasant, secure, comfortable, and nicely appointed. The coffee, pastries, and fresh juice were great to have for our 1st morning. It's like bringing home along with you on your trip.

My wife and I, my sister and her husband, and our Dad had a great time and we thank Kristi and the Bayou Guest House for being a big part of it!

Everything you want in a vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was fabulous. Everything we needed and more and in an awesome location. The owner was a pleasure to work with as well. She left extra treats that let us know that they were really treating us like "family". The next time we come we will definitely be staying at the Bayou Guest House. The only negative is that we couldn't stay longer.

This is a historically fascinating neighborhood on the Bayou St. John. Originally named Bayouk Choupic by the Native Americans settled here, nearly everything from voodoo ceremonies to coffee importing have taken place over the last 300 years. These days, the neighborhood is mixed with both businesses & homes, and everyone gets along well (and their dogs too).

Demographics include young professionals, generations-long NOLA families, weekend-visiting homeowners, earthy folks who appreciate green-living, & retirees.

The surrounding neighborhood around Bayou Guest House is active during the day, especially with the popular po'boy restaurant across the street, kayakers on the bayou, dog walking, and the young "Lafitte Corridor," a bike & jog pathway that connects us to the French Quarter!

In the evening, the area is nice & quiet.
