Overview

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!

Loved this little jewel. Away from hustle & bustle but yet close enough that you could get on trolle

  • 4 of 5

Very unique little house. Supplied with everything we needed!! About 5 block walk to get on trolley. They're restuarant close to trolley stop. Winn Dixie grocery store extremely close. Could walk if needed. Would like to recommend to eat at Oceanas close to bourbon street if you get a chance. We did a swamp tour through Cajun encounters which was AWESOME!! Stay was before cruise so we enjoyed staying in New Orleans to check things out. Mike was very accommodating and helped with any problems we had.

Pictures do not do this house justice! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in this vibrant home over the 4th of July holiday. The house itself is very spacious and full of color and unique decor. All the comforts of home are provided. It is in the perfect location. We drove into the French Quarter the 1st day, found a private hotel lot to park that cost $30 for the day. (The very nice valet gentleman set us up). That was an excellent price to have our vehicle secure for the day. There are several public lots available but they fill up pretty early. The second day we took the streetcar. The street car stop is several blocks from the house. An easy walk though. It is $1.25 per person. We opted for a 24 hour pass for $3.00 per person. You can purchade online or on the streetcar when you get on. I would advise you to familiarize yourself with the streetcar routes if you plan on using them, or you may have to walk a little further than you expect.

We spent a whole day in the City Park which is very close to the house. There is so much to do there. Walking paths, the museum, sculpture garden, putt putt, paddle boats, kayaks, etc. If we came back to New Orleams I would definitely want to say here again. The ONLY negative I could see is, there is no TV in the main sitting area. This may be a regional thing but we like to sit and watch television together each evening. There are TVs in each bedroom.

perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, had a nice layout, and was filled with lots of interesting artwork. The nearby location to the streetcar was perfect. We were able to park the car for the weekend and get to where we were exploring with no issues. Love all the recommendations that Mike provided. We were able to dine in at least two of the nearby suggestions and were very impressed with the quality of food. Can't wait to return!!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great but all windows were unlocked so just double check that. And be prepared for HOBO heaven, it's sad but almost makes it not as enjoyable. NOLA should do something about that
