Great location

Post WWII apts on ground floor of historic Bayou St John home. Enjoy lush landscaping with outdoor living areas. The sun sets on the bayou across the street, which is active with kayaks, walkers and people fishing. Walk to City Park or Jazz Fest. We have a twin listing next door. Look for the Cozy By The Bayou listing.

The space
Our suites have a queen bed, sofa bed and are carpet free. The kitchenette has a fridge and microwave, plates, bowls, mugs, glassware, flat wear and a french drip coffee maker. There is a magnolia shaded gazebo, lovely for dining or visiting with friends. The property is large and lush with flowering vines and bushes. Enjoy the view of the bayou from the upstairs gallery or cross the street, sit on a boat launch and watch the world go by. This is one of the most relaxing areas in New Orleans. But don't get too relaxed! City Park is just 2 blocks away with the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Botanical Gardens, the Bestoff Sculpture Garden, the Children's Amusement Park & Storyland, New Orleans themed miniature golf and an 18 hole golf course. New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bayou Boogaloo and Voodoo Fest are all walking distance from our house.

Lydia has lived in New Orleans since 1990 with her husband, Hal, a NOLA native. Since she was a little girl, their daughter, Maxie, has traveled with her parents extensively. The family first cut teeth on the "the shared economy" by doing a number of home exchanges, both domestically and abroad. In 2016, they acquired a large historic home on Bayou St. John where their mutli-generational family lives and they operate a licensed B&B, offering 2 Guest Suites which were built on the ground level of the main building during WWII. Lydia and Maxie recently opened the family’s second hospitality project, a serviced apartment development in Lake Worth Beach Florida, just South of West Palm Beach called the Sapphire, a Jewell Hotel property.
