The neighborhood is friendly and accommodating to all, host to many local bars and restaurants for all tastes and styles. The home is non-smoking, but smoking is permitted outside in courtyard.

What you should know. This neighborhood like most in the city of New Orleans is culturally diverse, up and coming, and in a state of gentrification. In short, you must be comfortable with being exposed to all walks of life.

Also it is important to understand the lay out of the house. It is a classic New Orleans architecture style known as a Shotgun House. Meaning you walk through each room to get to the next. There are no separate hallways.

Bonus. World famous street artist Banksy has a well known piece The Umbrella Girl on a building right across the street.

About Jesse

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Jesse purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Jesse chose Downtown

3 blocks form Frenchman street which has the best music and food to be found in New Orleans.

1 block from French Quarter.

Tons of amazing restaurants and shops within the surrounding blocks.

Safe and friendly residential neighborhood.

What makes this apartment unique

Historic home with all the right updates while keeping all the important vintage features.

10-12 foot ceilings and floor plan make for a very cozy yet open home.

Amazing front porch and back yard with deck.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd year in a row staying at this house. It's always been extremely clean and everything has always been in working order. I love the location and enjoy walk to the Quarter and Bourbon as it's not very far away. Jesse is pleasure as well and is available anytime if we need anything or have any questions. The back patio is my favorite feature of the house as it's private and quite large. Seeing as I keep coming back... it goes without saying that I highly recommend staying here. :)

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

6 of my friends and I stayed in the Smile house over Memorial Weekend and had a great experience. Jesse always responded very quickly to me, and was incredibly helpful. As there were 7 of us, we doubled up in the beds and pull out sofa, but there was more than enough sleeping space and it didn't feel cramped. It's a two unit house, and the next door neighbor is incredibly friendly and had a lot of recommendations for us.

The house is within walking distance of tons of great things (easily got to Frenchmen St to listen to live music). Jesse also included a book of New Orleans recommendations. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Clean house, great location, lot's of space - could not have asked for anything more. The owner was very responsive and the neighbor even folded my clothing from the washer!

Do note, however, that this is a shared duplex with a joined backyard. It didn't effect our stay but it's definitely just something good to know.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great trip. Yes, if you have to share a backyard and laundry room you couldn't ask for a better neighbor!

Great location, wonderful living space.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable for the two of us. Beautiful kitchen, great front porch and back patio. Close enough to everything, yet enough away that it's quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended!
