Experience the local flavor in our private completely renovated shotgun double in one of the city's coolest neighborhoods. This private Marigny home is one block from the French Quarter, less than a 5 minute walk to Frenchman Street & Bourbon Street, moments from Jackson Square, a short bike ride to Midcity, and 4 blocks to our complimentary secure parking space. It is also centrally located between the River Walk Street Car Line as well as the new Rampart Street Car Line.
Built in 1905, our brothel style shotgun (meaning it has a hallway running through the house for added bedroom privacy) retains the architecture you expect in a New Orleans home. High 12 foot ceilings, giant windows, original decorative brick fireplaces, restored pine wood floors, open kitchen/living space with pocket doors for privacy, and private courtyard/patio -- you get the idea.
It's charm represents a home of it's era, an open traditional shotgun with four bedrooms/two baths each complete with a QUEEN SIZE BED and ceiling fan and a QUEEN SLEEPER SOFA in the living room which has pocket doors for added privacy.
There is a 55 inch plasma screen in the living room with access to Netflix.
The kitchen is completely furnished with fridge, stove/oven, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender and microwave. Cutting boards, pots, plates, and basics utensils will be provided as well. If you have any requests please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate!
There is also a washer and drier in the back of the house which comes in handy after a day at Jazz Fest in the early summer heat! Speaking of New Orleans heat, the apartment has Central AC/Heat so you will always have a comfortable place to relax.
We also provide linens and towels, shampoo/conditioner/soaps/iron/clothes hangers, as well as a hair drier so you can save the space in your travel bag!
The private back patio has ample seating and greenery. There is a mature Satsuma tree that you are welcome to pick from for morning juice and mimosas.
Parking: You definitely do not need a car in the Marigny! We offer one park pass per unit be it in our secure lot 2 blocks from the house or our on street parking permit. It is important to reserve a parking option as soon as you book your reservation to insure usage.
Free Street Parking:
All streets on the East side of Elysian Fields Avenue
From our location you can walk anywhere -- the French Quarter is steps away, and the Marigny itself is a fantastic place to explore. You'll find where the locals go to eat drink and dance. Live Like a Local!!!
You will have full access to your own private apartment with a private back patio for hanging out or storing bikes if you chose to rent them from our favorite local shop. You will also be assigned a 4 digit code for the automatically locking key pad on the front door.

Most importantly we hope that you enjoy our city as much as we do, so please keep the communication lines open. If you need anything we are just down the street.
A few basic things:
No smoking in the house. There is a great front stoop where you can light up and people watch. There is also a private courtyard. Please pick do not leave your cigarette butts for me, instead place them in the outside dumpster.
No pets. Many guests have allergies, so we are pet-free here.
No outside overnight guests (other than pre-approved guests)
Check-in after 4pm & Check-out before 10am. If you need special arrangements just ask and I will do my best to accommodate.
Please be respectful of neighbors. The unit shares a wall with the other side of the shotgun. Please try to keep your noise down.
Absolutely no parties. The house is not set up for parties. There is a bar across the street that is perfect for that.
We also ask that if you choose to stay with us, that you introduce yourself as friends of ours rather than as Airbnb guests. Not everyone in town loves traveling via Airbnb as much as we do!

Hello future guests and thank you for your interest in my apartments. I'm a 11 year veteran to New Orleans and It's been home from the moment I arrived. I have a deep love for the city and it's culture. I pride myself on giving people the stress free vacation home we all deserve. I like to think of my apartments as retreats from this lively city, after all too much of a good thing can be draining and its my privilege to provide that comfort to everyone.
