A lux retreat with a distinctly NOLA vibe, our home is near to everything the city has to offer - restaurants and dining, nightlife, the streetcar and public transport, and family-friendly activities. Hop on the streetcar and head down to Audubon Park and the universities, see St. Charles, and ride to the French Quarter! You’ll delight in the comfy bed, the dapper kitchen, and the stylish space - perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with one or two kids). The apartment itself is a delight beyond description. A brand-new renovation, it is peppered with New Orleans charm mixed with modern luxury.

You’ll delight in the comfy bed, the dapper kitchen, and the stylish space - perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with one or two kids). The apartment itself is a delight beyond description. A brand-new renovation, it is peppered with New Orleans charm mixed with modern luxury. Adorned in retro and modern chic, with art and photography lining the walls and the original brick fireplace embellishing the bedroom, the one-bedroom, one-bath is perfect for a couple on a romantic getaway, a small family, or a few close friends. It offers a sleek kitchen adorned with newly purchased appliances, gorgeous ebony floors, and a fabulously outfitted walk-in shower. The kitchen is complete, with basic staples such as coffee, tea, milk, butter, juice, soda, fruit, and eggs included. In the living area, midcentury modern couch is perfect for cozying up to watch a film. The space features AppleTV, which brings all of HBO, Netflix, and Showtime to your screen, plus you are welcome to access your own iTunes library and whatever iTunes offerings you'd like to rent/buy. There is also a large DVD selection (available upon request next door). The living area couch can easily sleep a young guest. Also, a (real, not air) twin mattress or a high quality airbed can be provided upon request. The bedroom is designed for comfort, with a large queen-size memory foam dream-bed and crisp Egyptian cotton sheets. A pack n' play is available for use by families as well. The home also features a delightful front porch and a spacious front yard, for which a charcoal grill (with charcoal and lighter fluid) can be provided upon request. The luxurious amenities include a brand new washer and dryer, a dishwasher, wireless internet, a TV, AppleTV, a pack n' play for infants and toddlers, and upon request: a queen memory foam air mattress, a twin mattress (real, not air), a DVD player as well as DVDs, grill, and bikes. The property is very easy to locate and easy to love - whether you're in town for a wedding, a conference, Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, or just because. Please feel free to contact me with any questions! A few minutes’ walk to the oak-lined Carrollton line, the home is easily accessible to all of New Orleans by streetcar, including Tulane and Loyola Universities, which are a ride or mere walk away. Steps away from the home is Oak Street, home to Po’Boy Fest, Jacques Imo’s (a MUST for local food), Breads On Oak (a truly divine French bakery), numerous wine bars and beer gardens, incredible restaurants, and the much beloved music haunt, the Maple Leaf Bar. A true gem of New Orleans, check out the Mississippi River levee walk and bike path, which offers 22 miles of unparalleled views of Old Man River. Also available upon request are children's and adult bikes. Because bike rentals in the area are limited, we happily provide bikes to those who use them. Bike over to the Garden District and marvel at the mansions, to Whole Foods, to Loyola and Tulane Universities, or cycle along the Mississippi River levee to Audubon Park. New Orleans is a glorious city for its diversity, which includes blocks within neighborhoods. Our neighborhood is residential and emerging, so aside from Oak Street, it's largely a mix of long-time homeowners. This means that it is a mix of gorgeous renovations, historic shotguns, and run-down houses. Most guests say that while it initially doesn't seem like much (especially on the hardly-picturesque ride from the airport), the neighborhood has an authentic charm and is peppered with local gems - especially Oak Street, which can easily provide several nights' worth of night life. The neighbors are friendly and gregarious, even if some of their homes are run-down, and I feel perfectly safe walking around alone with my young son. Just keep in mind that this is not the Garden District, though we are Uptown, and the neighborhood is therefore mixed income and eclectic. As in anywhere throughout New Orleans, I recommend cabbing/Ubering home late at night and not walking around alone at late hours (even in the French Quarter). A stylish and cozy home base, this one-bedroom, one-bath Riverbend mother-in-law is in the midst of everything the city has to offer! Centrally located, a five-minute walk or a streetcar ride across town will bring you to most areas of New Orleans – from the chill offerings of Oak Street steps away, to the French Quarter, to the Garden District, to the Bywater, to Frenchman Street. Here, everything is within walking or streetcar distance and a car is not absolutely necessary, and the bus line runs nearby on Leonidas as well.
