This is a private 1 bedroom apartment (its own entry) on the 2nd floor of our 1920s Craftsman bungalow. Includes a living room, dining room, small kitchen, separate bedroom with full-size bed, and bathroom. For fun there's an original Nintendo hooked up. The living room futon sleeps one. Apartment is located Uptown (Carrollton) near Palmer Park, the streetcar, and a grocery and drugstore. It is convenient to Loyola and Tulane, and 15 min by car to the French Quarter.

The space

The apartment is furnished with stylish, Modern furniture pieces and has windows looking out in all four directions of the house. I love that you can see the clouds and skyline all around. There is a fold out futon sofa and 2 chairs in the living room, with a television hooked to digital antenna and an original Nintendo system. Scandinavian style dining table seats 4, with a small nook in the dining room having a desk and office chair. The bedroom has a full closet for your use, a full bed, and an additional sofa. The spacious bathroom includes a Euro-style Washer/Dryer. The kitchen is admittedly small but has a full refrigerator, microwave, sink, and stove--- fully outfitted with cooking utensils and a coffee maker. I stock the coffee maker area with coffee, creamer, sugar, and a few granola bars.

You have private entry access to the entirety of the 1 bedroom apartment, which occupies the 2nd floor of our home. We live below and are available, but will not intrude on your stay unless needed.

Interaction with guests

This place is great. Totally private upstairs unit in a quiet neighborhood. Really close to the street car to get around to other parts of the city. Clean, big, with a nice comfortable bed. And the host is really nice and accommodating. Would stay again.

Mel had great communication providing me with what to expect upon my stay as I had last minute changes that came up. The space was perfect for my husband and two sons (8 and 9 year olds) the neighborhood is very peaceful and convenient to downtown and the French Quarter. Although the apartment is a recreated attic space it is very neatly kept and private with plenty of light exposure. Definitely can't go wrong with this AirBnb!

Mel's place was just as described! It was very cute and conveniently located-- only about a 10-15 minute Uber ride to Bourbon Street and Frenchman Street. She was very quick to respond to all questions that I had and was extremely helpful with bar/restaurant/entertainment suggestions. I would definitely recommend her place to anyone who is visiting New Orleans!

My husband and I enjoy our busy creative life in New Orleans with our toddler and zippy rescue pup. I work as an art curator, and he is an architect. I am originally from Indiana, and he is from the north woods of Wisconsin. Together we love working on our 1920s bungalow house, taking long walks through exciting New Orleans, watching football, and gluing feathers onto our Mardi Gras costumes.
