About Charlie

I'm all about music, food, fun, and quirky culture...which makes New Orleans a perfect fit for me. My wife Emily and I love hosting like-minded people and helping newcomers experience just how rad this city is when they venture off of sticky smelly Bourbon Street.

Why Charlie chose Faubourg Delachaise

We bought this house in 2011 because it needed our love and attention! Since then, we have rehabilitated and restored its historical charm with a keen eye to preservation of its unique history (a carpenter named Henry Meyer built this house and the one next door--by hand--way back in 1874!). The owner-occupied double "shotgun" house now features all the convenient comforts of a newly constructed home while preserving its place in history.

What makes this house unique

The property is only steps away from Magazine Street in one of the most bustling and cultured enclaves of the city.

Great location just off Magazine

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a girls' weekend in New Orleans. We typically stay in the French Quarter, but decided to change neighborhoods. The location of the house was perfect for our shopping expeditions and restaurant excursions. There is so much to do within walking distance. Charlie was very responsive to requests for guidance/assistance and the house was exactly as pictured in the on-line description. It was spacious, clean and had all the amenities that we needed. It is a shotgun house (all rooms connected) but that did not present any issues for our group. Great find!

Inside: wonderful. Outside: a little raggard.

  • 4 of 5

The inside is roomy and comfortable. The kitchen is first rate. The bedrooms are roomy and well ventilated. The living room is nice. There is a nice selection of reading material. It would be better if the cable TV service was better. There's no CNN, Fox News, or ESPN. I could not find the remote for the DVD player. A general instruction folder for the electronics would be helpful.

Outside needs work. The sidewalk is chewed up. Also, the chairs on the front porch could use some big weather proof cushions. The neighborhood is quiet. The location is convenient for travel downtown. Overall we were happy with the accommodations.

Thoughtful details...

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay at this property. Filled with thoughtful details like a motion detector on the bathroom light, and everything else you could want. The location was perfect, one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city. Additionally, Charlie was especiallly and quickly responsive to any little concerns and question we needed addressed.

Don't hesitate to to stay here.

Nice uptown gem. Great location, great hosts, and comfortable accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space for 4. Walk to restaurants, coffee shops, the market and the street car line. Beautiful old wood floors and high ceilings in a traditional NOLA shotgun house.
