Welcome to my historic shotgun/railroad home in Treme! Centrally located and less than a mile from the French Quarter. This is a 2-bedroom 1 bathroom. The sleeping areas are one room with a king size bed, one room with a queen bed, 1 walk-through TV room with a twin daybed.

Quick 5 minute $5 über/15 minute walk into the quarter. Ample parking if you're driving in. 2 blocks from Esplanade bike path.

Most comfortable with 4 people, this can fit 5 with one person sleeping on the daybed.

The space

While this is a shotgun layout (one room leads to the next), there is a private entrance to the back room via the outside of the house. It's a lovely old home which I am renovating one room at a time. The house was built in the late 1800s and it has all the great features of an old New Orleans shotgun: high ceilings, wood floors and creaky everything.

I live on the other side of the house which has a deck in the shared backyard. You and your friends are welcome to hang out on the deck. The front room in the house I use as a studio so I've got a lot of things up there but it's set up like a parlor for you to enjoy.

Please note the shower is a clawfoot tub with a hand shower. I've attached the hand shower to a tripod so it works as a shower but it is pretty low. Think Euro travel style.

Guest access

You'll enter through the back door via a side walkway. I'll leave a front door key. and through to the backyard. I don't have cable TV but you are welcome to the Apple TV and tons of books! Especially New Orleans related.

Checkin Note: The 4pm check in time is to allow for cleaning between bookings. Ask about an early check-in and I'll be flexible if nobody is staying before you.

Interaction with guests

If I am in town, I will greet you and am happy to answer any questions about New Orleans and the neighborhood.

Other things to note

Shower: The shower is a clawfoot bathtub with shower attachment. It's adventurous.
Smoking: No smoking cigarettes in the house--outside is fine. People tend for the stoop or deck. I don't have a problem with certain recreational herbs and the neighbors don't seem to either.
We are walking distance from the French Quarter but it is not necessarily safe to walk at night/dusk. I feel comfortable biking always but I don't walk by myself after dark and I am always aware of my surroundings. This is true for me anywhere in New Orleans. Guest comfort levels vary. I love this neighborhood and feel very comfortable here but if you haven't enjoyed traveling in a developing country, this may not be your spot.

Quirky, lovely little place to call home while in New Orleans. Short Uber ride or average walk to most of the tourist hotspots. The neighborhood is a little rough around the edges but that was fine for us. Great pad!

Lisa's house is just about the coolest Airbnb I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. The home is a historical building (big plus for architecture geeks!) with lots of original features, amazing tall ceilings, great art (including a lot of photography) and interesting things (vinyls? Check! Tons of books about NOLA? Check!). Lovely coffee, teas and beers all available to us. Walking to the French Quarter took us about 15 minutes in the morning - you can go through Louis Armstrong park, quite a nice walk in the sunshine! Checking in and out was easy breezy and Lisa is super responsive.

Lisa seems like a great person, her communication skills were impeccable and she gave us some great tips. The place itself is quaint and very nice to look at, however we did feel it could do with a good clean throughout in general. The area is mixed, the street the space is on seemed nice and the house is secure. we did have some strange people outside one night and the streets adjacent to the property are not the safest however that is New Orleans and is not the hosts fault. I would want to have a car or take cabs/uber in the evening. Overall I would recommend this place based mostly on Lisa's impressive hosting skills and the fact it is good value for New Orleans, just be wary it might not be for everyone's taste and is charming but rough and ready.

A very quirky/crazy New Orlean place to stay! Lisa is friendly and was very helpful when the apartment wasn't clean enough at the beginning. A taxi ride away from the French Quarter as we didn't feel comfortable walking around there at night- but only around $8. Her record player and collection was great fun!

Lisa's place was so cute! It is a shot-gun style, so as long as you don't mind walking through each others' space, you'll be fine. It's a little off the beaten path - it seems close but isn't really a neighborhood I'd want to walk around in much at night. However, Uber and Lyft were both super quick getting to the address so it was never a problem to get where we needed. It's a cute neighborhood and there are a couple of good spots nearby. Lisa was so great about communication and check in and when I had a question, she was quick to respond via text, even though she was out of town. I would definitely recommend staying in Lisa's place if you're on a budget and looking to get an authentic NOLA experience!

Hey! After a few years keeping busy with photography, guiding and ski patrol in Tahoe with New Orleans as home base, I finally settled on the next adventure--fixing up a 19th century home. I've always enjoyed hosting couchsurfers and am excited to welcome Airbnbers to Treme!

My favorite part of traveling is getting to know people their stories. Through Airbnb I enjoy meeting folks and helping travelers experience New Orleans more authentically! I've couchsurfed and traveled in Australia, Costa Rica, Ireland, England, France, Italy, Hungary, Germany, Belgium, China, Mongolia, and all over the U.S. (most recently, Alaska).

I love New Orleans and enjoy the fact that I can walk to a variety of live music and delicious cuisine. But I miss the mountains and beaches of California where I've worked as an outdoor guide for five years. I have my Wilderness EMT certification which is helpful for winters ski patrolling in North Lake Tahoe.

I keep my place clean, am respectful, straight-forward but open-minded... Iove food, stories, people, and consider experiences as the most important investments toward a fulfilling life. Hope to meet you!
