About the property

house, 3 bedrooms + other (see description). 1.5 baths, sleeps(2-8)

Located in the heart of New Orleans in the very central, desirable and especially safe City Park Triangle neighborhood and decorated by one of the city's most creative interior designers, this house is full of surprises and features 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. One room has a king bed and the other two have queen beds. All rooms have flatscreen tvs with Netflix included. If you have any questions about booking, you can write back or call me (preferably before 7PM central time) at 504-457-8028. Thanks!

Update: Sorry for the lack of exterior pictures, they are coming soon. I like to think the reviews speak for themselves, but I promise though that it's just as charming as the inside:)

About the place: The main entrance to City Park/ Museum of Art is only 2 blocks away, the Canal Street Car is 5 blocks away, the fairgrounds a 10 minute walk and the French Quarter is only 7 minutes away by car. The house has wireless internet, an open and full kitchen, a charming porch where you can enjoy breakfast/ watching neighbors walk their dogs in a neighborhood which probably has the nation's highest per capita concentration of pet owners!

The house is in a quiet residential area and parties are not permitted at this location, nor are outside guests without owner approval. I know you'll have a great stay here and in case you were wondering - yes, that is a giant metal pelican eating a fish that you see in the background in the hallway!

About Mike

Thank you for looking at my profile! I've become something of a vacation rental veteran now with a few year's experience hosting guests from around the world under my belt. There are always a few exceptions, but overall it has been a truly wonderful experience, one that's allowed me meet some great people and provide an excellent vacation for the many friends and families who have come to stay in this great city.

About me: as an avid traveler myself, I am keenly aware of some of the difficulties of getting a nice place that is as advertised, in a good location, with a host who is dependable and who can help you answer many of the questions involved in trip planning. I can share a lot of my travel experiences as well as my expertise on this great city I grew up in, and as such I have plenty to share if interested. Some of my interests include reading, art, health, cooking and as mentioned, meeting new people.

For a living, I work in real estate but I have done a little of everything from medical interpreting and painting to landscaping and interior design. This all being said, if you have any questions at all about me, about my place or about the great city I live in, please don't hesitate to contact me! I can be reached via messaging or you can call me (preferably before 7PM central time) at 504-457-8028. I'll look forward to hearing from you!

Mike purchased this house in 2011

Perfect Choice for our Week in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

Everything I read about this vacation rental proved to be true! Location was perfect for all of our needs as we spent time in City Park, had street parking available, streetcar accessibility as well as coffee shops and grocery stores, all within close proximity.

Driving was easy using main city streets, whether to the Quarter, Audubon Park & Zoo or the airport.

BEST of all however, from someone who has done numerous rentals in the past, is the owner, Mike's, responsiveness to all inquiries. Both before we decided on this rental, and once there, he always responded to email and/or phone messages promptly. He was extremely accommodating and did his best to take care of our needs.

The house itself is large and spacious with three bedrooms, laundry, and anything needed to prepare meals and enjoy eating together in a pleasant dining room.

The front porch was lovely as a place to sit, drink your coffee and watch the world go by.

In all, this is a place I would return to with my family in the future! Thank you, Mike!

Beautiful home & Wonderful location - near practically to everything-

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (along with our daughters and their spouses) stayed in this house so we can attend a family Christmas party in Metairie. We all live out of town so this was much easier to book this house (than staying in hotel rooms) and much more fun. The house had everything we needed and will stay there again when the situation arises.

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a quiet, safe area near City park. Comfortable beds, and great master bath with good water pressure and plumbing. Owner very nice and helpful. We didn't need anything during our stay, but he was willing to assist if we did. Would stay in his home again. Thanks!

Great property. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

We (six people) stayed here for a NOLA weekend. The location is out of the craziness but a short car ride to any of the major tourist attraction areas. The neighborhood is quiet. The house is cute and well maintained. Would definitely rent this house again for a future trip.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Mike is an amazing host! He was eager to help and provide answers for any questions we had. This rental is far enough away from all the noise but close to all the activities. The neighborhood is very quiet. Mike has spent much time making the outside a tropical paradise.
