Overview

About the property

5 bed/4 bath, safe and secure - walk everywhere!

Enjoy some Gumbo YaYa in the heart of New Orleans! This XL space is actually two units side-by-side, just steps from Bourbon St. Located in a safe, secure building, 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.

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 French Quarter is basically your backyard! 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 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!

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!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Place is amazing. Perfect for 16 people (need to buddy up in beds). Rooftop pool is beautiful with a great view. We rented both rooms side by side and worked perfectly. Very large rooms with great art work. Will definitely rent again.

Great Location, AS advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Gumbo Ya Ya was great. It was as explained, close to Bourbon St but not ON it so quieter. Large rooms, older building with great character, just what one would want while in NoLa! Make sure you know its two units, side by side, but worked great, had plenty of beds, room, etc. Location is AAAA+++++++. And when I had questions or worries, the owner responded and even called me on a weekend evening prior to our arrival to answer a question. Great time!
