About the property

Harmony House is 950 sqft guesthouse with a long history that has been updated. Although largely off the tourist radar, Central City has long been an important thread in the city's cultural tapestry. This is one of the city's major African American neighborhoods ​and a major focal point for 2nd Lines and Mardi Gras Indian culture. Central City is seeing​ a ​ revitalization of urban blight. Lots of seniors and children are around, so please respect the neighbors at all times.

The space

950 sq feet slave quarters house with two additions thru the decades and finally rehabbed one year ago with modern comforts. Now, ​this one bedroom ​is not a shotgun​-style​ house. It is a sweet comfortable oasis for being close to many celebrations and sites

Guest access

The Harmony Guesthouse is connected to the main house by our yard. The yard is in the process of being redone. We do have two dogs, two ducks, and a four year & one-year-old​ that play in this yard. There is a door in the bedroom the opens into the yard. Guest can hear our creatures from inside. The guesthouse has the​ main door facing the street so you may choose to never enter the yard.

Interaction with guests:

We like to greet our guest to answer any questions we will try and help you as much as possible.

Other things to note

Please note that we have small children and animals we do respect your space so please respect ours and our neighbors. No animals and no smoking in the house.

Why Darren Clendenin chose Faubourg Delassize

This is the oldest home in the neighborhood. The first two rooms are the original slave quarters. we tried to keep the New Orleans Charm in rehabbing guesthouse. It is not everyone's come of tea cause it is an OLD house but we love it and some many others have stayed and enjoyed themselves. This property is also on Airbnb if you want to read some reviews.

What makes this house unique

Location is amazing. It is two blocks off St. Charles so if you need to get away from the parades you can but still jump out there and have a good time it is possible as well. there are restaurants, bars, convenient stores, banks, groceries, and streetcar all within three blocks.

Charming Authentic NOLA Style

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is nicely decorated, in a very walkable neighborhood, just 2 blocks from the OG streetcar line on St Charles. We had a pleasant stay, and the yard - with chickens & duck - was a bonus for my grandson. Small note - the sofabed is a bit low, & not terribly comfy, but tolerable. We loved being so near the gorgeous Garden District, Fresh Market & Gracious Bakery. Overall, We enjoyed our time there, and would stay there again.

Great location, charming house, perfect guest house!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at the Harmony House. We arrived to a clean and cozy home, with all of the amenities carefully thought through by the owners. There were extras of everything, including kitchen supplies, condiments, cleaning supplies, bathroom soaps, shampoos, towels, washcloths, etc. The temperature In NOLA was hit then wet then hot, and the AC AND heat worked great throughout our stay. The fireplace was a really cozy touch. Darren and his wife were nearby to answer questions, lend us advice, and loan us ingredients for our cooking. We loved the neighbors and friendly atmosphere. The parking was fantastic as well. We hope to stay next time we go to Mardi Gras.
