Our environmentally-conscious and modern micro farm is a dream come true for us - and we are excited to share it with you during your stay! Only 3 miles from the French Quarter, it is the perfect place to write, relax, read, take photos, celebrate, hug a chicken and get away to recharge for a bit.
Come enjoy the private guest suite of our home and see why the Holy Cross neighborhood is New Orleans' best kept secret.
LGBTQ safe & friendly.
Soaring ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, & a deep clawfoot tub add touches of luxury while a gorgeous backyard with chickens & large garden give you plenty of space in which to relax and unwind after your adventures.
Just 3 miles downriver of the French Quarter, our retreat features a private entrance, queen-sized pillowtop bed, living room, and private bath suitable for a solo traveler, couple, or 3 close friends. You will also have access to our large backyard patio/lawn and front porch cafe table.
The house is a double shotgun that has been converted to a single-family residence. The guest quarters is half of the downstairs and is separated entirely from the rest of the house by a locking pocket door. The private entrance opens into the office/living room space. This is connected to a hallway with a large bathroom and bedroom. There is a large closet with hangers and shelving as well as an iron, bathrobes, and slippers. Nothing says vacation like a bathrobe :)
Though there is no kitchen, there is a mini fridge for you to store your leftovers. Upon request, we will deliver a farm-to-plate breakfast of our organic eggs, seasonal fruit, fresh bread, homemade jam, and farm-roasted coffee for $12 per guest per day - honestly, it is such a lovely treat. If you plan on exploring restaurants, we will leave a list of our favorite spots around town.
Our house is on a dead-end street with very little foot or car traffic. We offer a quiet environment in which to unwind after all of your adventures. Neighborhood quiet hours are 10pm to 8am.
You are free to come and go as you please. You are welcome to use the back patio which can be accessed from the front of the house. Cafe lights make the backyard cozy and beautiful at night. Our lovely chickens are let out in the yard at sunrise and are put to bed before sunset.
You have a private entrance with a living room, bathroom & bedroom that are all separated entirely from the rest of the house.
Interaction with guests
We are committed to respecting your privacy but we also want to make sure you have the best possible experience while you're in New Orleans. This is our home and we are happy to answer any questions, but if you're looking to be left alone we are good at that too.
It's not unusual to find us enjoying a glass of wine while we watch the sunset from the backyard and you're more than welcome to join us :)
Other things to note
*We have two very friendly and adorable dogs named Iggy (a 10 year old westie) and Puna (1-year-old German Shepherd)
*We have beautiful hens free-ranging in the backyard!
*Due to boat traffic on the river (yes we are that close!) wifi on the property works for email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, and general browsing. Streaming movies are often interrupted, so if your idea of a great vacation is to catch up on Netflix, this may not be the best listing for you.
*The green cottage in the back is also an AirBnB listing. If you're looking for a full kitchen or washer/dryer access, see the listing at "SUMMER SALE - Bright Cottage on an Urban Farm"
