About Barbara Barre

Barbara Barre began purchasing property in Treme in the late 70's. She had a passion for how well they were constructed as well as the material and craftsmanship that went into the work. Emma's house was built at the turn of the century and completely renovation in 2015 and the beginning of 2016. It was named after her mother who grew up and spent most of her life in the neighborhood. Barbara has been in the rental and renovation business for over 30 years with many units in the Treme and other parts of New Orleans as well as condos in Destin and Panama City Beach, Florida. The creole runs through the marrow of her bones so you will experience that hospitality to the fullest.

Barbara Barre purchased this House in 2014

Why Barbara Barre chose Seventh Ward

Just as her mother, Emma, Barbara also grew up in the neighborhood. The lot adjacent to the home held the first home Emma bought for the family to live in. As the family grew, they didn't venture far. They purchased property in the vicinity of the house they always knew as thier first, their own- Emma's House.

What makes this House unique

Completely renovated in 2015 and 2016, there are still features of the house that bring back great memories. The large front porch with morning coffee or evening reading, the ideal location made it easy to get almost anywhere in the city. Special events and most festivals were of walking distance or a short ride. Also, this one piece of property can be rented 3 different ways- you can rent the 3 bedroom side that sleeps 8, or the 2 bedroom side that sleeps 8, or the whole house can be rented to accommodate 16 people. There's a beautiful private courtyard on the side of the house.

                                                              Nice house, good hosts, slightly tough neighborhood

                                                              William E.

                                                              The house is relatively recently remodeled and everything works smoothly (especially the all important air conditioning). The outside patio is especially nice! Its not quite as roomy as the pictures make it out to be, but it didn't feel cramped either. It's a relative short Lyft away from various attractions in NOLA (like $5-10) and close to the airport. One thing to know is that the neighborhood is coming back but isn't quite back - there are a few notably abandoned buildings nearby and an empty lot. We didn't feel unsafe at any point while we were there, but we were also a group of fairly large men... Id be sure to look carefully at Google street virw before putting the deposit down to make sure you're okay with the surroundings!

                                                              Thanks William for a very honest review. The neighborhood isn't back 100 pct but it's coming there are 7 Airbnb homes within a block and a half from Emma's house and that's so because they are all newly renovated and a very short distance from the French quarter and Frenchmen street . Thanks again for using Emma's house

                                                              The house was immaculate everything was like new

                                                              The house was wonderful! the location was a bit questionable so while we are walked during the day-we ubered back at night. Easy to communicate with the owners-very nice and responsive

                                                              Great place to stay just blocks off FQ!

                                                              Owners are super prompt and attentive, can't say enough about their responsiveness and care!

                                                              The home is updated, clean and comfortable in an area that seems to be turning into a charming neighborhood. Truly New Orleans vintage home with full length windows and high ceilings and lots of the original features remaining. Very comfortable for our party of 6. It is fully stocked if you want to cook - we were enjoying NOLA food too much for that. Plenty of bathrooms for larger groups. Great outdoor courtyard to enjoy. Neighbors we passed seemed friendly as we walked by frequently on our way to the quarters. It is also super close to the Rampart trolley line for convenience. No car needed for a great New Orleans experience.

                                                              Cute and convenient

                                                              Short walk to Bourbon Street and cute place. Nice outdoor space but we just didn't have time to use it. Good value for $$ and had everything we needed.

                                                              The only thing that made it difficult for the stay was the air conditioning not working on the one side in the living room area bottom part but having a discount on the last evening was good for us well appreciated the family had good times and memories we do wish that thelocation was closer to Frenchmen area but overall it was fine thanks again

                                                              Worked out great
