Want to experience the New Orleans city life? Our cool and comfortable, fully renovated historic 4-bedroom home is located on the streetcar line nestled among restaurants and bars just minutes from downtown.

The space

This is a very charming and truly unique New Orleans property. Perfect for a large group of guests in town for any special occasion. Its front porch and balcony are great people watching spots as the streetcar rolls along the Avenue in the The Lower Garden District in a mixed use neighborhood. If not on the front porch and patio, the rear deck is where guests hang out and have coffee in the morning and drinks in the afternoon. The house is on the parade route for Mardi Gras! We (one of us is an architect) completed a significant renovation in 2015.

The three-story house, which was built in the 1890s, has high ceilings, the original staircase, fireplace mantels, mouldings, beautiful wood floors, and french doors with tall hurricane shutters.

The home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms and can comfortably accommodate 14 guests. The first floor has a living room (with a large sofa bed), dining room (seats up to 8), full kitchen (stove/oven/microwave, ice maker, Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, bathroom with shower and one bedroom. This ground-floor bedroom has 2 queen beds. There is also a full-size stackable washer/dryer.

Like so many old New Orleans houses, the kitchen is accessible from the ground floor bedroom or the deck which runs all along-side of the dining room, bedroom and kitchen.

The second floor has another living room (with a large sofa bed) and kitchenette (with an undercounter refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker) and 2 bedrooms. One bedroom is located along the balcony on Saint Charles Ave. with a king bed. The other bedroom has 2 queen beds. This bedroom can be used as a suite because of the bathroom layout. There are 2 full baths (all new) with a shower in each. The third bedroom with one queen bed is on the third floor in a great attic space. Each bedroom and both living rooms have new TVs and cable. All bedrooms are flooded with natural light.

The home has a great front porch on the first floor and second floor balcony, both with outdoor seating, overlooking Saint Charles Ave. There is also a large deck along the side of the house. The building has a full security, fire-alarm and sprinkler system and is monitored 24 hours a day. There is no parking on the property but an abundance of parking just on the side streets.

During the 2 weeks of Mardi Gras there is a minimum 5 night stay.

During Jazz Fest both weekends there is a 4 day minimum stay.

Great house and very considerate host. My family had a great time and the house was a perfect home base for a weekend of activities. Loved being so close to transit, as well as some good bars and restaurants just feet from the home.

Margaret's house is a gem! We had another Air B and B that had an issue and unfortunately, we had to move into her place at the last minute on the day of, late in the evening. Amazingly, her place was available. We booked her place and she went out of her way to stock the fridge for us and personally welcome us to her house. Everything was better than we could have imagined. We were a group of 6 and her place could fit many more people, so we were extremely comfortable. 3 full bathrooms made sharing easy. The beds were extremely comfortable. There were multiple balconies and beautiful porches on the property. Everything about the place was thought out and has a ton of charm. Margaret was very easy to communicate with and extremely helpful. She is an excellent host. I recommend staying at her house.

Fantastic old house with huge, maybe 14-foot ceilings, wood floors, modern bathrooms, air-conditioning. We had 10 women share the house, and it was perfect. Great living room space, large eating table, comfy beds.

Wow. First time visiting New Orleans and couldn't have stayed at a better location. We were a group of 9 and this house was perfect. Location was great, right outside the French Quarter in a very lively area. House was very clean. Bathrooms had all the amenities we needed as well as the kitchen. We even had complimentary beer and drinks in the refrigerator. Margaret was very easy to communicate with and check in/out was a breeze. Highly recommended

Just recovering from Mardi Gras and have to say this stay was amazing. Highly recommended staying here. From the host to the house this visit to New Orleans was tops. Terrific and fun place to rest your weary bones after taking in all that the crescent city has to offer.
