Welcome to the Domaine on Dauphine! Once a cozy corner store in the 19th century that sold chickens to neighborhood residents, now a comfy abode during your travels to the Crescent City! With a living room nestled on a lush courtyard, a full kitchen, and large bedroom with flat-screen TV, you’ll be tempted to just stay in, but you shouldn’t let that stop you from checking out all that the eclectic Bywater neighborhood and the rest of this wonderful city has to show you.
This guest house is a creole-style cottage adjacent to a traditional shotgun (occupied by the host) on a shady corner lot in the Bywater Historic District. Originally built in the 1800s, renovated in 2007, and completely refreshed in 2017, guests will enjoy full, private access to this 600+ square foot, 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage with a fully appointed kitchen. There is a queen bed in the bedroom plus a West Elm modular couch in the living room that comfortably sleeps one adult. Flat-screen TV with DirecTV and DVD player. Washer/dryer in unit with supplies. Freshly-squeezed grapefruit and satsuma juice from trees in the courtyard, when in season (October - February)!
Guests may feel welcome to sit in the courtyard, with a private patio just outside the living room door.
Interaction with guests
We live on-site and the door to our home is just across the courtyard. Should you need anything, we’re happy to be at your service. Otherwise, we'll leave you to the quiet enjoyment of the space and to enjoy your travels.
Other things to note
On-street parking is typically pretty easy to find.
J&J's Sports Bar is across the street. While it can be great for watching a game close-by or for a night cap before you hit the sack, depending upon the day, it can also create conversation noise into the wee hours. A white noise machine is provided in the bedroom, in case of sensitive sleepers.

I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, so (perhaps not surprisingly) I enjoy cooking, eating, listening to live music, drinking a good cocktail, and relaxing with friends and family. I've just returned home after living in Washington DC for the last 8.5 years.
My partner and I are known by our friends for having impromptu oyster festivals in our yard during the spring, hosting (particularly strong) margarita parties in the summer, barbecuing and watching (SEC) college football in the fall, and fixing a darn good pot of gumbo in the winter and huddling with folks in front of a firepit. In other words, I thrive on making people feel welcome and on creating those moments in life that linger with you for years to come. Laissez les bon temps roulez, as they say!
