About Pat & Melissa

We are a married couple 'over 50' Pat works as a Travel Tour operator (Costa Rica), Melissa is a medical professional at a local hospital. We love New Orleans and are excited to share it with visitors. Melissa is from here and Pat came in the late 1970s. We know our city very well. We fully embrace the quirky culture of New Orleans. We love the local music scene, the festivals, and (most of all) the local food! We are longstanding members of an 'underground' Carnival krewe, and we march in the annual Krewd de Vieux Mardi Gras parade. We are happy to share our vast knowledge of New Orleans with our guests.

Pat & Melissa purchased this Apartment in 1995

Why Pat & Melissa chose Mid-City

Location! MidCity bills itself as 'The Heart of the City'. It is convenient to everything. The Canal Streetcar stop is only 100 yards away. This is one of the safest neighborhoods in the city. It is easy to hop the streetcar to the French Quarter, or within a half mile of Jazz Fest. Close to City Park and I-10.

What makes this Apartment unique

Lots of Space for a family to spread out. There is a new queen bed in the front bedroom. This is actually a double parlor, which is extremely common in New Orleans. The second room doubles at a living room, with a Smart TV and a DVD player. The large sofa folds down to another queen bed. Perfect for a couple of kids. This rental features a fully equipped kitchen, that is 24 feet long. There is another new futon sofa here, with a 10 inch mattress. This is fine for another couple, or teens that want their own space. The full bath is off the kitchen. Guests in the front room have to pass through the corner of the kitchen to access the bath. The kitchen also featrues Stainless steel appliances and lots of prep space.. With two supermarkets only two blocks away, you can save a few dollars by making breakfast and lunch at 'home'. This is a free standing building in the owner's backyard. Lots of privacy and very secure.

                                                      Cheryl C.

                                                      Lovely older house full of dark wood and tile along with eclectic art. Clean and comfy. Right off the streetcar line. Melissa’s wild garden is wonderful. Two downsides: couch in the living room is extremely uncomfortable and aged. And, as stated in a prior review, the air/heat unit is extremely loud. If you are a light sleeper, you will be disappointed. Fortunately for me, I could turn it off as the weather was perfect.

                                                      Nice place

                                                      William M.

                                                      Very nice, quiet accommodations and just a few minutes by trolley to the French Quarter. We had a blast!

                                                      Excellent In All Ways

                                                      JRPSan Francisco, CA

                                                      This is the second time we've been guests of Pat and Melissa and we really enjoy our stays at their property. This time, we came for Mardi Gras. We're not tourists exactly, I'm an LA native and visit my family often, so the usual requirement to be near the French Quarter doesn't apply to us (I prefer to AVOID the Quarter generally), however, it's a straight shot down Canal on the streetcar to get there. In any case, Mid-City is, well, in the middle, it's easy to get to whichever part of NOLA you desire from there. I'd absolutely recommend staying at this Mid-City rental. Quiet (when it's not Mardi Gras, of course! Everything is bumpin' during Carnival!), easy parking if you have a car, easy to get around without a car, great restaurants and bars (12 Mile is my personal favorite), and then the unit itself is beautiful. All the old school charm of a creole cottage but still modern and comfortable. Both AC and heat were required during out stay (crazy weather) and both worked just fine, bed is supportive-no back pain or aching, bathroom is super cute! The kitchen is huge and has everything you could possibly need. We were just two adults, but I could see this unit being very comfy for a family with kids with the futons available.

                                                      Excellent Stay & Great Location

                                                      Tamara K.

                                                      My sisters and I stayed here for Voodoo Fest 2017. The Mid-City residential location off of N. Carrollton Street was perfect and the house is walking distance from Winn Dixie and several coffee shops and restaurants (we highly recommend The Bean Gallery for coffee and Katie's Restaurant for brunch). The sleeping arrangements were comfortable -- one queen in the bedroom area, one sofa bed in the living room, and a queen near the kitchen. The kitchen was spacious and had everything we needed. Pat and Melissa were so friendly and helpful, and gave us all the insider tips and recommendations.

                                                      Great location for city park and the street cars with everything you could need for your vacation

                                                      Claire B.

                                                      We enjoyed our stay and found the place clean, spacious and well stocked with everything we needed for us and our toddler. The location was an easy walk to city park and the street cars. Pat was very accommodating and gave us lots of helpful information for our stay.

                                                      It really was the best location

                                                      Darrell T.

                                                      The location really is the best thing. That's not to say the accommodations weren't nice. The apartment was clean and cozy with plenty of character. Back to the location, I parked my car and it didn't move again until I left. The neighborhood was safe and definitely quiet. You are within a very short walk of several restaurants. Shout out to Blue Dot Donuts around the corner. The Canal St streetcar stop is a short walk and runs all night in both directions. It is also a great way to meet the locals who seemed quite friendly and patient with out-of-towners who have never been on a streetcar before. Definitely would stay here again.


                                                      Mid-City, New Orleans, LA, USA

                                                      Safe Neighborhood. Fantastic location less than 100 yards from the Canal Streetcar line and the City Park spur. Convenient to City Park & Jazz Fest. Only a short streetcar ride to downtown, the Superdome, and the French Quarter. Walking distance to the annual Bayou Boogaloo festival on Bayou St John. We have twenty restaurants within a two block walk. Within the same area are a national pharmacy, two major supermarkets, three urgent care offices, two bars, three banks, two day spas, and a dry cleaner.
