Looking for a month(s) long getaway? Need to be in the city for work for an extended period? A couple needing some excitement? This 110 year old fully restored side hall gallery is perfect. Close enough to the excitement of The Quarter but far enough away to have peace and quiet. Read a book in the Jazz Library...or write one. Soak in the amazing master tub or enjoy coffee in the tropical landscape. Off-street parking + Wi-Fi included. Located on Desire street in the historical Bywater.

Phillip was a wonderful host, very responsive (even though he lives in Europe!) and always a total pleasure to deal with. The house and yard were perfect. So lovely, so well designed and maintained! It was a pleasure being home. And the neighborhood was great. Near the French Quarter but also having it's own pleasures and charms. Many wonderful restaurants and music venues practically in your back yard. Would recommend it highly and look forward to coming back.

Phillip did a wonderful job in sending us information about amenities in the immediate and surrounding areas. He was quick to respond to questions. The location was quiet, but easy access to the French Quarter, the trolley and local restaurants. The house had lots of charm. Definitely a place to return in the future.

Quite lovely remodeled shotgun in Bywater. Updated amenities with the feel of originality. The main issue was that there was no video service to the house. You're fine if you don't need that sort of thing.

We had a great time at the Desire House!! Phillip was super attentive and made everything easy. The house is clean, cozy, and has a perfect blend of old and new. We LOVED the kitchen--definitely where we spent most our time. If you want a place away from all the chaos yet still totally New Orleans, this is the place!

C'est une jolie maison très bien décorée de type shotgun, style pour lequel j'avais choisi cette maison car très typique de la Nouvelle-Orléans, avec une cour arrière très agréable, le quartier est tranquille et il y a plein de bons petits restaurants. Ce quartier est juste assez proche pour se rendre facilement où il y de l'action (bars, restaurants, musées, etc.) Phillip nous reverra certainement car nous n'avons pas eu assez de temps en 5 jours pour faire tout ce que nous voulions. A la prochaine!
