Fully Furnished quaint and quiet 2 bedroom 1 bath shotgun double has all the charm of its 120 years, yet all the modern conveniences, including fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms (queen beds), 1 full baths, and is very tastefully decorated. Located in the historic, quiet, and charming Uptown neighborhood of University/Carrollton, 4 blocks from Tulane University, 5 blocks from the streetcar line and 20 minutes to the French Quarter. The University/Carrollton neighborhood has the wonderful Maple Street corridor and the eclectic-hip Oak Streets all within walking distance or a bike ride!! Both offer dozens of wonderful restaurants, bars, coffeehouses and boutique shopping. Just minutes to Audubon Park, the Universities, Downtown or the French Quarter by streetcar or bus. Offstreet Parking for 1 car is available.
Master bedroom has 2 large built out closets, and a queen size bed. The second bedroom has a queen size bed as well. Internet, WiFi, and cable TV for your convenience and entertainment. All-White high thread-count fine linens and towels. High-end super comfortable mattresses with extra-comfort protective washable covers and duvets. Fully stocked modern kitchen with fridge, coffeemaker, microwave, dinnerware, single all stainless sink, dishwasher and professional series appliances, & gas range. Dining/Breakfast area adjacent to the kitchen.
The unit is 1,100 square feet fully furnished. Tradition holds that the name "shotgun" derives from the notion of firing bird shot through the front door and out the rear without touching a wall. The term itself postdates the shotgun's late-19th-century heyday, not appearing in print until the early 20th century. Since you have to walk through one room to get to another, the home is not completely private from one bedroom to the next, but more semi-private. Doors cannot be shut off as it hinders the flow of the central A/C system.
The laundry room is stocked outside in rear shared yard with high-efficiency full size washer and dryer.
Owner lives on premises and prefers quiet, mature guests. 4 people max (no exceptions), no pets, no smoking inside. $120.00 per cleaning fee.
My home is your home so feel free to sit outside on the front porch bench and watch the goings on or my back gardens at the table and have a little barbecue.
Interaction with guests
I live in the unit next door and can help with anything you need.

Make yourself at home and when you are ready to check out of my wonderful home, place soiled linens in the laundry basket by the washer/dryer. Also, please take a few minutes to leave a review of your stay. Reviews are very important to me and critical to my success?
This is a shotgun double and I live in the other unit so I ask that you be respectful of noise levels and walking around with high heel shoes. No parties or late night music. No smoking in the unit (can smoke outside in the backyard). 1 parking place in the driveway.
