You'll enjoy all that is wonderful about New Orleans in this charming one-bedroom loft. Located within walking distance to a number of the top restaurants in the city with street parking right outside your door - you won't be disappointed.

The space

This one bedroom, one bath loft is complete with a kitchenette - including a fridge, microwave, coffee pot, dishes, hot plate, pots, and granite countertops. It is in the heart of Uptown New Orleans, one block from Magazine Street. It is within walking distance of two grocery stores (Rouse's and Whole Foods), and some of the city's top restaurants (Shaya, La Petite Grocery, etc.). The converted garage is cozy with new window a/c units and a space heater for those rare instances when you need one in New Orleans. The apartment is located at the back of the property, at the end of a driveway. The property is crammed with fruit trees - lime, satsuma, blueberries, fig. As we have young children, we can help you out with a portable crib and other kid paraphernalia. The couch folds down into a double bed, and the sleeping loft is huge and can accommodate an additional air mattress (we have a twin you can borrow). The sleeping loft is in the former rafters, so is 48" high at center (i.e. most individuals can't fully stand up). Cozy for most, but if you are mobility-limited, it could be a challenge. Check out my other listing on the same property if you are looking to rent a couple of spaces to accommodate a larger group.

Guest access

You'll have access to the apartment and the driveway used to access it. We have a playset in the yard, and if you have children, they are welcome to use the playset. Check-in time is 3 p.m. and check-out time is 10 a.m. There is keycode entry, so you can check in as late as you need.

Interaction with guests

This apartment is just behind our house, so we are available and accessible whenever you need. We're also happy to leave you completely to yourselves.

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Jacob's. The highlights: good location away from all the tourists but with easy access to the Quarter and Garden District via the 11 bus and just a short walk to the St. Charles Streetcar, it's also just around the corner from Le Bon Temps Roule - if you're in town on a Thursday go check out the Soul Rebels there! Quick walk to two great po boy spots and other eateries. It was rather warm when we stayed and there's an ac unit downstairs and upstairs, with a fan as well to keep you cool. We sighed a breath of relief each time we stepped into the cool house. The sleeping area is upstairs in the loft, you'll have to crouch to get to the bed. The bed is more of a mat on the ground than a bed but it is actually quite comfortable, and more comfortable than I expected it to be by looking at it. The downstairs area is nice for lounging and has a kitchen area for any meal prepping. It's located in a quite neighborhood which was a nice retreat after a fun night out. The space is clean and welcoming and I'd definitely recommend to a friend. Jacob was easy to communicate wtih and let us both check in early and check out late. Much appreciated!

Jacob and his family were very accommodating. They allowed us to check in early because they didn't have a previous guest. The space was cute and clean. The bed is on the second floor which is like a loft. It's very low, but it gets the job done. The bed is super comfy. There's also a pullout couch on the first floor. I would definitely stay here again.

A clean, cozy place in a good Uptown location. FYI, you will have to crouch down low to access the loft bed area.

Awesome space in a part of town that you have to visit. If you're looking to get out of the tourist only trap, why not stay within walking distance of local bars and restaurants then take the streetcar in to see the tourist stuff. Great place, nice people, great getaway.

Everything about the loft was great - location, convenience, privacy - and it was a great value. Would absolutely use it again while visiting NOLA.
