Photos and Description of this City Park holiday house

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!

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.

Very cozy and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this adorable house! It was perfect for the 4 days we were visiting New Orleans. It is close by to everything and it was really nice to be able to wake up and make coffee and enjoy breakfast all together. If we go back we will definitely be staying here again!

Everything we hoped for and more!

  • 4 of 5

The house was so much more than we expected. Mike was very accommodating and replied very quickly to any and all questions. The house was decorated perfectly to reflect New Orleans culture, why stay someplace plain when your there to learn :) public transportation is very close. Although we used taxis a lot as my parents weren't used to the heat and all the walking. I would definitely recommend this house and quite possibly stay there myself again someday.
