My home is a late 19th century shotgun style home. Guests have use of front porch (and porch swing), large bright room with hardwood floors, high ceilings, ceiling fan and original mantelpiece, private bathroom with claw foot tub. It’s a small apartment at the front of my house, decorated with imagery of New Orleans culture such as, Mardi Gras Indians and Second lines. Mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker provided. You won’t need a stove (you’re in New Orleans after all :-) and there are numerous cafes, restaurants and a corner grocery store all within 5 minute walking distance.
Your stay includes free Wireless Internet, TV with basic stations.
No smoking in the house. However, the front porch is an excellent place to smoke or enjoy a drink on the evening, or coffee in the morning.
Interaction with guests
This is a separate private accommodation; once I give you the key you do not need to see me, but of course feel free to text, or call, or knock on my door with any questions. (I’ll be in the back of the house.)
Other things to note
This area is relatively safe part of the city. A company, Metro, provides 24 hour security patrol in the neighborhood. I have lived happily and safely in the back half of the house for over 20 years. There is a small school playground in the block, so on weekday mornings kids may be heard outside after 8AM if its nice weather.

Originally from the UK, I made New Orleans home over 20 years ago. I teach for a living which allows me to travel to other countries to experience the different art, architecture, food and culture in general. However, I'm always happy to come home to New Orleans which has its own unique rhythm and rich culture.
