About Matilde Alberny

Greetings! We are Matilde and Gustavo, both visual artists. We came in 1999 to #NewOrleans for an exhibit of Gustavo and barely few hours later fell irrevocably in #love with the city.

Gustavo is a well-known artist and regularly shows abroad and other cities of the United States. His work (and mine) are permanently on display at Kezic Gallery in the #FrenchQuarter. You might want to organize a visit to Gustavo’s art studio in the Bywater.

We moved to New Orleans where we found a perfect mélange of village and city life with great entertainment. We are foodies, finding wonderful dining experiences in New Orleans is easy and are plentiful. We stroll while sipping our drinks (it’s “legal” here) and enjoy our architectural treasures in the afternoon, meet friends or chase fabulous #music at the many venues and festivals around the city. And most of it, if not all can be done walking!

We are owners and managers of our property. We like to personally greet our visitors if possible. We are attentive to all of our guests needs and inquiries but understand that we are not part of the planned vacation. We are available if needed.

Matilde Alberny purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Matilde Alberny chose Bywater

We were enamored by the laid back ambiance of the Bywater, a gorgeous and dynamic historic district just blocks away from the French Quarter. We were seduced by the relaxed tone of this quaint, artsy and eclectic neighborhood. So we established our art studio on Dauphine.

The Bywater is the perfect area to enjoy a true local NOLA experience, very close to everything, but far enough to be quiet at night. It is a treasure!

In harmony with the innovative spirit of the residents of the Bywater, restaurants and cafes are gathering attention from around the country, great food is being cooked here! The art and entertainment scene is hip and varied and something amazing is always going on.

As one of our awesome guests said: “Be brave and leave the French Quarter behind!”

What makes this apartment unique

You will enjoy the laziness of the backyard, sitting in the front porch while the interesting characters that live in the Bywater go about their businesses. An stroll through the neighborhood is a wonderful experience.

Quaint house - comfortable accommodations for two.

  • 5 of 5

After several stays in NOLA we decided to venture into Bywater area to stay for Essence festival. Nice & quiet neighborhood, off the beaten path. Close enough to all the action and just an Uber away. Uber was the most convenient transport and most affordable.

Matilde provided pleasant and ease of conversation via Home Away app. No concerns, no problems arose.

Neighborhood markets and eateries were great and within comfortable walking distance from residence. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return for a future stay.

Matilde, thankyou for your gracious accommodations!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host you!. The Bywater is becoming a destination itself. As residents we want to maintain the neighborhood flair, it is the locals spot. It is where we go for great new restaurants and bars, where the best music and shows are played. The wine shops, boutiques and art galleries spotted in the area are very unique. ..and we are blocks away from the city's landmarks.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly appointed. Everything you need. Clean & comfortable. Great back deck to enjoy your morning coffee or a cocktail. Quiet neighborhood, the apartment is in the back of a great shotgun house, so no street noise. If you'd like to be away from the tourist traps of the quarter, and can tolerate the occasional hipster, than this is a great place to spend time.

Bywater serenity

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I recently made another trip to the New Orleans area and this time decided to get a little further away from the quarter to enjoy some peace and quiet at night rather than the constant revelry which seems to revolve around the quarter 24 hours a day, we were not disappointed.

Our stay at Matilde Albery's compact but very comfortable shotgun home was a success.

The place was pretty easy to find and was clean, quiet and very easy to use. We were happy with the spacious, private deck out back and thrilled with the quiet of this eclectic neighborhood. On the days that air conditioning was a must, we found the temperature to be perfect and the bed was very comfortable.

The number of eateries and retail in the immediate area were not as prolific as we had expected but it didn't take too long to walk into the major restaurant and bar areas around and in the quarter. The Country Club bar around the corner was a people-watching adventure both times we went. We did discover a foot bridge towards the river that spilled out onto a beautiful waterfront park and the walkway on the other side led us straight to the French Market about fifteen minutes away.

The architecture and personalities we encountered in the area were very diverse, and full of character so we never were at a loss for something new to occupy our exploration of the area.

Our hosts, although we never met in person, were helpful and the beer and chocolate in the fridge, (although we didn't partake of either), were a generous and hospitable gesture.

We strongly recommend this rental to anyone visiting the area who is interested in great proximity to all that is New Orleans without all the sounds that keep you awake when it's time to relax.

(I must be getting old).

Thanks for the hospitality.

The description of apartment on vrbo doesn't "sell" this property but I hope my review will!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nicely equipped apartment in a historic, double shotgun home that has been very nicely refurbished. 600 square feet is more than adequate space, owners provide coffee and coffee supplies (big deal to me to not have to go find that the first minute!) as well as plenty of toilet paper (some vrbo's give you just enough to get started and that's a hassle). Plenty of storage, and good instructions on how to use the fans and lights, with remotes. This is a GREAT neighborhood. There is a 150 year old church just down the street with a charming bell that rings on the hour; Crescent Park is five minutes away and it's a lovely park where you can walk or ride bikes into the city; uber is available for easy transportation and costs about $7-10 depending where you're going. There is a lot of rehabilitation going on in this neighborhood and streets toward St. Claude St. feel a little sketchy at first, but we felt safe walking that direction (although not at night). If you head toward the river, that part of the neighborhood is moving along in it's gentrification process and there are lovely homes to see as well as incredible restaurants. We ate at several highly reviewed restaurants in other neighborhoods and the best food was in the Bywater nearby this rental. Try Mariza, Elizabeth's and Oaxlis to start.

If you want to enjoy a New Orleans neighborhood, with real people, this is a great option. Things to keep in mind if booking this property: You enter your apartment on the side of the house at the back (this was unclear to me so I add it here). Right where you get the key is the door you enter--not the front door; Oven is gas; furniture is modern--to me this meant a somewhat hard mattress and the futon to sit on was fairly small. I'd recommend a wing chair for putting on shoes and a mattress topper; the garden is clean but could use some plants; laundry room very nice; TV is cable/Netflix only. Don't expect the big three channels (ABC, NBC or CBS); wifi excellent; sheets were excellent quality but we could have used more hand towels and bath mats.

Be brave and leave the French Quarter behind!

This exquisitely elegant, quiet and comfortable apartment is located in historic district of Bywater, once considered a bohemian neighborhood now housing a hipster crowd with it's laid back charm.

It is located in Dauphine, between Louise and Clouet surrounded by most of the shops, restaurants, artists shops, bars and coffee places of the neighborhood.

It is very pleasant to stroll down or ride a bike by Dauphine, Royal or Chartres Streets.
