About Wendy Tynes

Owned 20+ years by an established New Orleans family. Travel is our passion, and finding a clean VRBO is a must when we travel, so we hopefully have made a place for others to stay and feel comfortable at La Maison Dupre. Having fun in New Orleans is what it's all about! Local Real Estate Agent

Wendy Tynes purchased this House in 1985

Why Wendy Tynes chose Bayou St. John

We chose this home because we wanted to be able to have a great time in the City, walk to eclectic neighborhood restaurants, enjoy City Park ( the 6th-largest and 7th-most-visited urban public park in the United States) and quiet mornings at the local coffee shops. An added plus is the neighborhood is primarily owner-occupied and pride of ownership shows!

What makes this House unique

We fell in love with this home because it feels like we own a piece of New Orleans history. If you're ever in the mood for company, the porch is a great meeting/greeting place. Sit out there and neighbors are certainly soon to join for good conversation. It's a great place to "people watch" as the jazz fest fans walk by. We love the Old New Orleans neighborhood feel and architecture.

                                                              House had everything we needed. Short walk for your morning coffee, stores and restaurants. Lovely walk through tree lined streets and beautiful homes. Not far from french quarter and all other attractions. Wendy made sure we had everything we needed! Had a wonderful time!!

                                                              Home was great for a girls getaway. All the neighbors were really friendly. Felt very safe in a good part of town- really close to Bourbon and Frenchmen Street.

                                                              Wendy was always available for questions.

                                                              Would stay here again!

CC,s coffee house is one block away and has all of the treats you want both savory and sweet. The house was super clean and beautifully decorated and had great WiFi and TV. The neighbors and neighborhood are charming. I walked every morning for about an hour. Safe, secure, charming, and the scent of olive trees. This will be my choice home away from home every time I visit the Big Easy

                                                              A guest from Rockville, MarylandRockville, Maryland

                                                              After many visits to New Orleans, we’re convinced that MidCity/Esplanade Ridge is the best location in town, within 15 minutes of everything (<10 to the Fr Qtr) with a car and very accessible even w/o one. And La Madison Dupre is the best place to stay. Roomy, clean, outfitted with everything you need. It may take a little time to get used to shotgun-style living, but the layout of the house allows for privacy and quiet. It can get chilly on exceptionally cold winter nights (we had snow in early December!), but there are blankets and heaters and it doesn’t last long. We definitely plan to return.

                                                              Thanks so much for the kind words and we're so glad ya'll enjoyed the house! It was certainly a different kind of cold that you experienced here in the great New Orleans.....snow! That's a word we all know and love, but not a word that we get to enjoy too often. Hope to see you again! Thanks!
