Welcome to New Orleans! The city's walkable historic core, including Faubourg Marigny, the French Quarter, Warehouse and Arts District, Magazine Street, the Garden District, Audubon Park and Zoo and St. Charles Avenue, are flourishing anew and eager to welcome visitors once again.

Whether for the jazz, the nightlife, the hopping scene, the food, the culture, or for that distinctive joie de vivre, it's all within less than a miles walk away.

The Loft is located on the border of a "Tale of Two Cities" The Bywater" and "The Marigny". The Loft can accommodate up to 2 guests meaning I have 1 real queen bed. It also has a cozy kitchenette for your personal use! This is an efficiency apartment just for you. This apartment is located in the rear of the building ground level NOT upstairs. This is a very old house has not been updated in years. So if you want modern-this place is not for you.

It is a leisurely 20 minute walk or 15 minute bike ride to Frenchman Street. As you stroll toward your destination to the French Quarters, you will pass by more than 8 watering holes as well as a Walgreens (in case you get a headache). What the heck, buy the Advils now. You're going to need them. Really. Lol.

Also McDonald's, Subway the new St. Roch Market are within 2 blocks as well as the neighborhood grocery store which carriers a variety of things from Po-Boys to Merlot or Jack Daniels if you please not to mention 2.99 bacon, eggs @ grits! Oh yes and don't forget about good music, theater and yoga classes @ the Healing Center all within a 6 block stroll.

Guest access

The back yard is relaxing for Smokers and Non-Smokers. If you just want to get some sun, read the paper or just chill with a bottle of wine. Please use garbage can privided to discard your trash or butts. The neighbor's dog will bark initially but only for a few moments once they realize you're not going in their yard. I do NOT have any pets.

Interaction with guests

Enjoy the back yard for a relaxing break from the apartment!

Other things to note

There is gate to the right that leads to a comfortable back yard with iron patio tables for relaxing, eating and smoking. The area has lighting at night. I have NO pets. However there is a stray cat who comes in the yard from time to time but runs when he sees you.


If you desire late check out (leaving bags or staying in room when available if no one else is checking in at 1:00) there is a charge of $10 per hour or $40 flat rate until 5:00 p.m. Just communicate with me if you would like to

Great place to stay, Ruby was a wonderful host and really accommodating. The house is accurate to pictures shown, and very comfortable. The area has plenty of great eating places within walking distance, and cost about $8 to Uber to places such as Frenchman St or the town center.

This was the perfect location for a short trip! We got in Friday afternoon and met the lovely Ruby who was able to get us perfectly situated as we were only there for the weekend. The room was air conditioned, bed was comfortable and the ambience suiting. Would love to stay here again

We loved staying with Ruby!! She was incredibly kind and welcoming, plus she was very understanding after our flights were changed due to weather. Her apartment was so cute and perfect for our girls getaway. The neighborhood was lovely! It was close enough to all the attractions and to the French Quarter while still giving us the opportunity to explore an area we may have missed out on otherwise. Ruby gave us so many suggestions for activities and made sure we had an amazing time on our trip. I would definitely recommend staying with Ruby and will stay with her next time I travel to New Orleans! We love you Ruby! Thanks again for everything!!

Ruby's place is wonderful if you are looking for a place to yourself near French quarters! We walked to all the tourist sights from the house but an Uber was only about 6-10 a trip if you didn't want to walk. At first the neighborhood felt run down when we arrived at night, but after seeing it during the day it felt safe and even has a great ice cream shop around the corner. St Roch Market was a short walk away for breakfast. It is an older place so don't expect it to look perfectly clean, but I would have no trouble at all with booking again!

Such a great place. Very centrally located. Very comfort. We didn't spend much time there we were always out so for us it was perfect. A/C is a little loud but it's tolerable. Will recommend to anyone.

Hello world. I am a Louisiana lady with a lot of spice. From a small town but been in New Orleans for over 20 years. I work in retail and love fashion. I also work as a movie extra from time to time. I have a passion for this city and all the wonderful food, people, music and fun. Everyday, I can't wait to embrace a new exciting outing (concert in the park, festival or just strolling in the French Quarter even riding the Ferry at sunset is an awesome experience (viewing the City as mirrored through the mighty Mississippi). I love traveling, gardening and partying in a "grown-up" classy way. I can't wait to share my refreshing fun-loving spirit with my guests. As we say here in the "Big Eazy" Laissez les Bon temps rouler! Hope to see you soon.
