Overview

About the property

5 bed/4 bath with rooftop pool, outdoor deck, safe and secure - walk everywhere!

Enjoy some Gumbo YaYa in the heart of the Quarter! This XL space is actually two units side-by-side, just a half block from Bourbon St. Located in a safe, secure building boasting a rooftop pool, outdoor grilling area, and fitness center, this 2,800 sq ft, very ample space has five bedrooms, four baths, two full kitchens, two laundry rooms with front-loading washer/dryer and and views of the old city.

An architecturally unique space, it is part of a rehabilitated warehouse built in the early 20th century. There are many brick walls throughout the apartment and the large industrial windows overlook the rooftops of the French Quarter.

SETUP

The "living room" unit is arranged more traditionally, with a very large living room with two sofas, easy chairs, 50" TV, and a tall table with chairs. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a full-size kitchen, and a utility closet with front-loading washer/dryer. The larger bedroom has a king bed, a queen bed, comfy chairs and a 32" TV. The smaller bedroom has a king bed that can be made up as twins, plus another 32" TV. This unit sleeps a total of six, with room for one more on the LR sofa.

The "dorm room" unit is furnished as primarily a sleeping area, but does include chairs and daybeds. The larger bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, king bed, a twin bed, and a 32" TV. The other bedroom has a king bed that can be made up as twins, as well as a 32" TV. What would normally be the living room is set up like a fun "dorm room," with two king beds, a four-poster daybed, chairs, and a 55" TV. The second bathroom is in this area. There is also another full kitchen and a utility room with front-loading washer/dryer. This unit sleeps a total of 10.

Both kitchens are fully outfitted with dishes, pots and pans, coffee makers, toaster ovens, etc, and each has a built-in microwave, full-size fridge with a great ice-maker, and full-size electric stove. All four bathrooms have shower-over-tub configurations.

GETTING AROUND

Many world-famous bars and restaurants are just steps from the apartment and the entire French Quarter is just outside the building's lobby. The Canal Streetcar line is just a block away and will take you all over the downtown area, as well as out to City Park, the St. Charles line, and the new Rampart-St. Claude line that will take you to Frenchmen St and the Marigny. A 3-day pass costs just $9/person and is good for unlimited use during the three days.

Bourbon Street is literally steps away (75 ft) and shopping on world-famous Royal Street is only two blocks away. The Mississippi River is just six blocks away, as well as the Aquarium, the Canal Street ferry (a delightful and inexpensive way to cross the Mighty Mississippi to Old Algiers Point), Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, and much, much more. There is a cool little grocery store only six blocks away that carries many locally made foods, and corners stores abound throughout the Quarter where you can pick up liquor and mixers, snacks and toiletries. No car needed!

WANT TO RENT JUST ONE UNIT?

If you have a smaller group or feel you don't need both units, it's possible to rent just one side, based on availability. Please inquire by email or phone to get accurate rates for one side or the other. Rates will vary by season and event.

HAVE A VERY LARGE GROUP AND NEED EVEN MORE SPACE?

We also have other properties in the building if you have a very large corporate or family group. All units are in the same great building, with all the amenities. You can rent them individually or together to accommodate 4 to 44! Please inquire by email or phone to get accurate rates for combining units. Rates will vary by season and event.

It was clean, inviting and had really great lighting for pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place by Bourbon St. for my bachlorette party and came across this gem! I had dozen girls, so it was crucial that we had a place to party, but also 2 separate apartments to keep us apart when we needed a little R&R. This was the perfect solution and had plenty of space for everyone! Even after we all spent time on the rooftop pool, no one had to fight over showers. We easily rotated in and out.

You'll see this in all of the other reviews, but I can't stress enough how accommodating Elizabeth was - even when I changed plans on her or asked her if one of the girls in the group could check in early so that she wasn't wandering the french quarters alone. She communicates in a timely manner and gives very specific instructions on checking in and out.

Overall, the girls and I shared amazing memories on the property and I am so lucky to have found it.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the space and yourselves! The Gumbo YaYa is set up to comfortably accommodate a group just like yours, so everyone has plenty of room and privacy, but also a spacious common area to gather and enjoy being together. Loved having you and hope you'll visit again soon!

Fabulous property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The two apartments here are terrific for a large family or group. Lots of great space to gather together and then quiet places to sleep. The building is in a great location for a car-free exploration of New Orleans -- just steps from many great restaurants and Bourbon Street. Everything you need is here. Super comfortable and would definitely stay here again.

Great condo in a cool building near Bourbon Street

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and plan to come back another time. The condo is fantastic in a secure building with a rooftop pool. One minute walk to Bourbon Street (near the Bourbon Cowboy). The owner was very easy to work with too!
