Great Mid-City Location, close to Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, French Quarter

Walk to Jazz Fest or Voodoo Fest or the Bayou Boogaloo... you can even walk to the French Quarter (about 45 minutes) from this classic New Orleans shotgun double in Mid-City New Orleans. 2 Queen sized beds in separate rooms, full kitchen, one bath with large shower, and tv room with a futon that can fold out. It's very close to City Park (with bike and boat rentals and the New Orleans Museum of Art), Bayou Saint John, the Fairgrounds (horse racing and Jazz Fest). Bright, airy, quiet, in an excellent urban neighborhood, not too dense, but close to everything. There are great restaurants, bars, and local groceries just around the corner, and one of the city's more famous bars, Pal's Lounge, is just two doors down.

This property is licensed by the City of New Orleans, permit number 17STR-04290.

About Bill Lavender

Nancy is a licensed tour guide, famous for her literary walking tours of the French Quarter. Bill is poet, writer and publisher; you'll find plenty of Lavender Ink publications in the space.

Why Bill Lavender chose Bayou St. John

Mid-City is one of nicest neighborhoods in New Orleans, with plenty of its own amenities, close enough to the French Quarter to be convenient but far enough away to be quiet.

What makes this Apartment unique

Great location if you want to be close to downtown but in a residential neighborhood. There are 5 good restaurants, 2 coffee shops, 3 bars and 2 grocery stores within walking distance.

                                              Adorable house in a great location; short Uber or cab ride to the French Quarter and downtown. The house was stocked, had everything we needed for our short stay. Bill was responsive and helpful. Would stay there again!

                                              Adorable New Orleans cottage in a great neighborhood

                                              tesair l.

                                              My husband and I spent two nights in this very special shotgun cottage, close to lovely Bayou St. John and gorgeous City Park, in a a quiet old neighborhood where you can easily walk to good restaurants, and even to the French Quarter if you don't mind a longer, but straight walk through mid-city. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed, including air-conditioning and a clothes washer. The rooms were all painted in a festive manner, which made the cottage both cheerful and welcoming. Bill and Nancy, the owners who live across the street, were gracious hosts, and we enjoyed talking with them about their great city. From now on, we will always stay at The Red Door when we visit New Orleans.
