About this listing

Small private bedroom in apartment in beautiful Uptown New Orleans. Very close to shopping, dining, and bar options. Steps from the bus line and an easy walk to the St. Charles streetcar.


Cleaning Fee: £20
Security Deposit: £161
Weekend Price: £68 / night


The space

The space is a small private bedroom in a larger apartment in an old house on the traditional Uptown parade route. There is a porch, an office, living room, kitchen, two private bedrooms and shared bath. Hardwood floors throughout.

This is not a shotgun house in the sense that there is a hallway and while they are in the same vicinity, the bedrooms are enclosed and private.

Your cozy room has a queen bed, A/C unit, 32" smart tv (streaming only) with bluetooth soundbar, ceiling fan, floor lamp, shelves, clock radio, a few books about the neighborhood, a side chair, and mini-fridge. Closet space is limited.

Guest access

The whole house more or less. Your guest room, the shared bath, kitchen, living room, and porch. I have my own bedroom and separate office that are not shown.

Interaction with guests

I really enjoy meeting and visiting with my guests although most people who stay here spend much of their time out and about, enjoying all that New Orleans has to offer. It's a fantastic place to recover from your last adventure and prepare for the next. If you are looking for privacy in common areas, you may want to narrow your search to 'entire place'.

The neighbourhood

This part of Uptown enjoys an abundance of businesses within walking distance. Many great places to eat, drink, and shop just steps away. Walking distance to good neighborhood bars - casual and unique dining options. Convenient to Audubon Park, Audubon Zoo, Tulane, Loyola, Touro, and Ochsner.

Getting around

Plenty to do and see right here in the neighborhood by foot or bike.

The #11 bus on Magazine is steps away and and goes directly to the French Quarter. The St. Charles streetcar line is just a short walk away and also goes to the French Quarter. Each cost $1.25, take about 30 minutes, and are very pleasant rides with lots to see.

Other things to note

This is a drafty, somewhat shabby old New Orleans home with all the quirks. The bathroom sink knobs turn backwards and you have to stand on one foot to unlock the front door.

Awesome host and super attentive to your needs or concerns. Always had a suggestion if we were stumped on where to eat, there's just so many possibilities and yelp isn't always helpful. Between the A/C and the fan, I wasn't too warm while sleeping and the bed was comfortable. The sheets and the towels all smelled super fresh and clean. The bathroom was super clean as well. I definitely recommend staying with Jay! He's an awesome host and really helped us as first timers in Nola!

Jay was helpful and accommodating. I was in town for a conference so I didn't go out much but he helped me find a good pizza place (walking distance - right down the street) that I otherwise wouldn't have discovered. He also helped me with finding the grocery stores and bus lines. He was a great host!

Jay was a great host and kept in constant communication throughout the exchange. He was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction during our stay. The home was clean and in a safe neighborhood.

Jays place was the perfect location! Beautiful walk to the street car, and safe neighborhood to walk for food and drinks. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet him while we were there but we had everything we needed and he kept in good contact if I needed anything. It was perfect for the price! Thank you so much for letting us live in your house for a week :)

We really enjoyed our stay at Jay's place! The location is safe and surrounded by coffee shops, stores, and parks. It is also close to a bus stop and a trolley stop that will easily take you to the French Quarter. We didn't get to meet Jay in person (his friend let us in the house and gave us the keys), but he was easy to get in touch with and provided great customer service. I would definitely stay here again during another visit to New Orleans!

I work in the live music business for a good part of the year and sometimes I'll jump out into campaign politics for a few months.

In my downtime you can find me casually riding my bike, cooking with friends, enjoying table tennis, or socializing at a divey bar.
