Enjoy a comfortable house in a great neighborhood featuring private bedrooms and a bright, sunny living room. Take a short walk through a historic NOLA neighborhood to the French Quarter, or just 4 blocks to the streetcar, taking you pretty much anywhere you want to go in the city.
Relax in a fully enclosed backyard, featuring a sunny deck, nice garden and plenty of shade - perfect for a warm NOLA evening.
And, eating in is simple with an organic grocery store just across the street.
The first thing you'll notice on your visit is the wonderful smell of sweet olive trees that line the walkway to the door, and then ginger flower from the garden.
The house is also ideal for families with younger kids, with access being off-street so that it is quiet, and a nice, secluded backyard for privacy. There is an organic grocery store across the street, making meals easy if you decide to stay in. If you prefer to eat out, here are a ton of great places within walking distance, including St. Roch Market with a lot of quick and delicious options only a minute away.
Everything was recently remodeled, creating a unique feel for a New Orleans house. Windows comprise the full back of the house, so there is plenty of light during the day, and the house is super comfortable on both hot days and during the occasional cold spell.
Unlike a lot of New Orleans houses, it's not a shotgun, so you have private bedrooms and don't have to worry about people walking though your room to go to the bathroom or get to the kitchen.

This is a perfect house for families and people looking for a peaceful getaway... very private, and easy to walk to everything.
It's a really bad house for parties or rowdy activity - if you're looking for something like that, there are a lot of other places that would be a better fit (we would really hate to cut anybody's visit short as a result of neighbors complaining).
Specifically, the house is a double (a duplex) - there are permanent renters on the other side of the wall, and there is a lovely bed and breakfast next door. Both the permanent renters and the manager of the bed and breakfast have an interest in keeping everything at respectable levels (in particular, the B&B tends to pay very close attention), so if things were to get rowdy it would result in early termination (absolutely not a problem with reasonable use, but a bad situation for everybody if an event, party or people were being packed in).
If I am in a city, it is most likely San Francisco, CA or New Orleans, LA (Tennessee Williams was onto something) but I'm trying to spend more time backpacking and exploring some of the Pacific Crest and Appalachian trails.
