This is a whole single" shotgun" house. This "shotgun house" is a narrow rectangular domestic residence, with four rooms arranged one behind the other and doors at each end of the house. It was the most popular style of house in the Southern United States from the end of the American Civil War (1861–65), through the 1910s.

Fantastic and authentic stay in this wonderful character house. Fabulous walk along the river to the French quarter. We walked this each time and then got an Uber back in the evening for about $6. Highly recommend:)

Kurt was a fantastic host who gave me pointers of places to visit as well as eat etc. He had the fridge stocked with cold water and bagels along with coffee etc to consume. His place was also great to stay at and a nice walk from there to french quarter along the water. Will come back some day

Kurt's place was amazing! Super clean and comfortable and he was very accommodating. He offered up many great suggestions and really just made our New Orleans trip the best it could be! Can't wait to stay there again.

Kurt's place is thoroughly charming, spacious and in the coolest part of town. It's equipped with everything you need from an electronic trash can to a plentiful supply of beads. I would definitely stay here again

Cool and Comfy......I enjoyed my stay at Kurt's. The home is cozy and quiet . It is in a tranquil part of the Bywater neighborhood. Kurt provided us with the necessary creature comforts and check in was smooth. I would personally recommend this property to my friends and family!

Our host Kurt is very nice and friendly. He greeted us with a warm welcome even though we showed up a little later than anticipated. He helped us out when we misplaced a set a keys early in the morning and got us inside. His place is a lot than it looks in the pics. Very comfortable for two in a nice, quiet neighborhood that's like its own little town. There were shops and restaurants walking distance away. Neighbors are very friendly. His place is pretty close to the French Quarter being about a 7 minute drive. I'd happily stay here again.

Interaction with guests

I live three minutes away and can be contacted easily if you need anything. You will be in your own private house so if I am not needed you probably won't see me except for when I'm over to water the outdoor plants or some other yard work.

About Kurt

Hi folks, my name is Kurt. I am a New Orleans native whose family has been here from the 1720's. I have a passion for my city's history, architecture, music, and food. I live two blocks away and garden, fish, and raise chickens in my spare time
My little house is a single detached home that I have owned for over 25 years, it is not a "cheesy apartment" it is cozy, quiet, and comfortable. After a hectic day in the French Quarter it is the perfect place for one to two guests to relax. We have a fold out Queen sofa in the Living room that allows for up to four guests if needed.
Please feel free to message me with any questions that you might have, I reply to all inquires promptly.
