The house is on Elysian Fields, a main thoroughfare of the city. You can catch the streetcar 6 blocks from the house and ride it into the French Quarter or you can walk.
In New Orleans, this house is called "a double." It has 2 private units with 2 separate entrances which share a fenced in back yard. Each unit has a living room (with a queen sleeper sofa), a kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. You are renting both units with a total of 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There are 2 washer/dryer units in the house for your use.
The house is on keyless entry. To enter, first press the SCHLAGE logo at the top of the keypad, then enter the 4 digit code. (Before your arrival, I will have confirmed with you a code to use.)
When you close the front door, the deadbolt will automatically lock after 20 seconds. If you are holding the door open, the deadbolt will also engage. If this happens, please do not slam the door repeatedly in an effort to disengage the deadbolt. It does not work. If you look at my door frame, you will see the path of all the men before you who have traveled through this land of idiocy. If the deadbolt has engaged and you are lucid enough to recognize the phenomenon, please reach around the door and turn the flip lock to disengage.
The house has Direct TV in both living rooms, wifi, linens provided, towels provided, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, fully usable kitchen with dishes, pots, pans, coffeemaker, tea kettle etc, washer/dryer, fenced in back yard, lock to side gate to store bikes if you rent them
Interaction with guests

We are always reachable night or day and live within walking distance on Zach's urban farm. We would also love you to stop by the farm and visit during your stay, if that interests you.

“The first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds - the cemeteries - and they're a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. Going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep. Greek, Roman, sepulchres- palatial mausoleums made to order, phantomesque, signs and symbols of hidden decay - ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who've died and are now living in tombs. The past doesn't pass away so quickly here. You could be dead for a long time.
The ghosts race towards the light, you can almost hear the heavy breathing spirits, all determined to get somewhere. New Orleans, unlike a lot of those places you go back to and that don't have the magic anymore, still has got it. Night can swallow you up, yet none of it touches you. Around any corner, there's a promise of something daring and ideal and things are just getting going. There's something obscenely joyful behind every door, either that or somebody crying with their head in their hands. A lazy rhythm looms in the dreamy air and the atmosphere pulsates with bygone duels, past-life romance, comrades requesting comrades to aid them in some way. You can't see it, but you know it's here. Somebody is always sinking. Everyone seems to be from some very old Southern families. Either that or a foreigner. I like the way it is.
There are a lot of places I like, but I like New Orleans better. There's a thousand different angles at any moment. At any time you could run into a ritual honoring some vaguely known queen. Bluebloods, titled persons like crazy drunks, lean weakly against the walls and drag themselves through the gutter. Even they seem to have insights you might want to listen to. No action seems inappropriate here. The city is one very long poem. Gardens full of pansies, pink petunias, opiates. Flower-bedecked shrines, white myrtles, bougainvillea and purple oleander stimulate your senses, make you feel cool and clear inside.
Everything in New Orleans is a good idea. Bijou temple-type cottages and lyric cathedrals side by side. Houses and mansions, structures of wild grace. Italianate, Gothic, Romanesque, Greek Revival standing in a long line in the rain. Roman Catholic art. Sweeping front porches, turrets, cast-iron balconies, colonnades- 30-foot columns, gloriously beautiful- double pitched roofs, all the architecture of the whole wide world and it doesn't move. All that and a town square where public executions took place. In New Orleans you could almost see other dimensions. There's only one day at a time here, then it's tonight and then tomorrow will be today again. Chronic melancholia hanging from the trees. You never get tired of it. After a while you start to feel like a ghost from one of the tombs, like you're in a wax museum below crimson clouds. Spirit empire. Wealthy empire. One of Napoleon's generals, Lallemaud, was said to have come here to check it out, looking for a place for his commander to seek refuge after Waterloo. He scouted around and left, said that here the devil is damned, just like everybody else, only worse. The devil comes here and sighs. New Orleans. Exquisite, old-fashioned. A great place to live vicariously. Nothing makes any difference and you never feel hurt, a great place to really hit on things. Somebody puts something in front of you here and you might as well drink it. Great place to be intimate or do nothing. A place to come and hope you'll get smart - to feed pigeons looking for handouts” bob dylan
