Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, sleeps 5

The condo is located in a prime location in New Orleans Historical French Quarter. Just a few blocks from Bourbon

Street. The location is perfect! As you can see in the pictures the 1350 sqft two bedroom, two full bath condo has just recently been renovated and furnshed. Everything in the building and unit is highend. You will not be dissapointed by the accommodation or the location. You are within walking distance of everything New Orleans has to offer. You are even in walking distance of The Mercedes Benz Super Dome. If you want to experience New Orleans the way it should be this is the location for you...

The most common definition of the French Quarter includes all the land stretching along the Mississippi River from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue (12 blocks) and inland to North Rampart Street (seven to nine blocks). It equals an area of 78 sq. blocks. Some definitions, such as city zoning laws, exclude the properties facing Canal Street, which had already been redeveloped by the time architectural preservation was considered, and the section between Decatur Street and the river, much of which had long served industrial and warehousing functions. Any alteration to structures in the remaining blocks is subject to review by the Vieux Carré Commission, which determines whether the proposal is appropriate for the historic character of the district. Its boundaries as defined by the City Planning Commission are: Esplanade Avenue to the north, the Mississippi River to the east, Canal Street, Decatur Street and Iberville Street to the south and the Basin Street, St. Louis Street and North Rampart Street to the west.[4] Bourbon Street is a famous and historic street that spans the length of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. When founded in 1718, the city was originally centered around the French Quarter.[1] New Orleans has since expanded, but 'The Quarter' remains the cultural hub, and Bourbon Street is the street best known by visitors.

The most popular section of Bourbon Street is 'Upper Bourbon Street', an eight-block section of popular tourist attractions. Bourbon Street begins at Canal Street (across Canal is Carondelet Street in the New Orleans Central Business District). The straight street continues downriver, southwest to northeast a few blocks from and roughly paralleling the Mississippi River, and comes to its terminus at Pauger Street in the Faubourg Marigny. (In the 19th century, Pauger was named as a continuation of Bourbon Street.) Bourbon Street was named in honor of the House of Bourbon, the ruling French Royal Family, at the time of the city's founding.

From Dumaine Street to Pauger, Bourbon Street is largely residential with scattered businesses still catering to locals. Also on this stretch of Bourbon exists (Jean) Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, which is a very popular bar, showing the style of the original French buildings (before the Spanish iron balconies) which burned in the first Great New Orleans Fire (1788).

Though largely quiet during the day, Bourbon Street comes alive at night, particularly during the French Quarter's many festivals. Most popular among these is the annual Mardi Gras celebration, when Bourbon Street teems with hundreds of thousands of tourists. Local open container laws in the French Quarter allow drinking alcoholic beverages in the street in plastic containers (drinking from glass or cans is prohibited). The streets are packed with tourists drinking Hurricanes, Hand Grenades and Huge Ass Beers - a large plastic cup of draft beer marketed to tourists at a low price. Other festivals and events focusing on Bourbon Street include French Quarter Festival and Southern Decadence.

One of the oldest and most popular restaurants on Bourbon Street is Galatoire's, which was founded in 1905 by Jean Galatoire. Known for years by its characteristic line snaking down Bourbon Street, patrons would wait for hours just to get a table — especially on Fridays.

Beautiful place in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girls road trip to NOLA. This was the perfect location. Loved the condo! I would say the only issue is the loud noise of bottles being emptied in the middle of the night down the back street of the condo. Lots of street noise along with construction. It is New Orleans... I definitely would stay here again!

Awesome location, super responsive host!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my group of five to stay for a long weekend in New Orleans. The location couldn't have been better and the condo was equipped with everything we needed (lots of pillows, extra towels, etc). The location is even more impressive and gorgeous than in the photos and Brittanie was super responsive to all questions and messages leading up to our stay!

It was a bit noisy, but if you're in the middle of the French Quarter that comes with the territory. It didn't bother anyone in our group, but if you're sensitive to noise ear plugs may be worthwhile.

Highly recommend!!

Beautiful condo in great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the condo located in an exciting part of the French quarter. Ear plugs and white-noise apps may be required on some nights in order to get some sleep but that's what makes the location great. Once we established communication with Gerard via telephone rather than the app, communication was great and our concerns were addressed. Overall, despite some access issues due to the elevator and an unfriendly renter, we had an amazing time in this beautifully decorated, comfortable condo. Would love to return again!

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Overall the apartment was very nice. Well appointed and clean. It in the perfect location for exploring the French quarter. The only bad is the noise. The apartment overlooks an alley where the kitchen staff from the restaurant next door gathers on their breaks, and yell back and forth. They are constantly emptying garbage all night long the garbage truck makes a nightly pick up around 3 am. The windows are old and you can hear everything clear as day. So bring earplugs.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

loved staying here. Clean and modern and lovely with exposed brick and tall ceilings. So close to everything in the French quarter. The street noise is definitely something to consider if you are the type that needs absolute quiet to sleep.
