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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.
Beyond locks:
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

If you like, myself or my fiance, Zach, will meet you at the house upon your arrival to help you get settled in and give you the highlights of the neighborhood. The house is on keyless entry, so if you prefer us not to meet you there or if you arrive at a strange hour,,I will give you the codes to the front doors and you can let yourself in. 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. We respect your privacy & will not drop in on you during your stay, unless you want/need us to come by.

Other things to note

Whenever possible, we are happy to accommodate early arrivals and late check-outs. Just ask.

Carrie was wonderful and the house was perfect for our trip!

Carrie is a fantastic host that really took great care of us while we were in New Orleans. We swapped cell numbers so that we could keep in touch and ask questions during the whole stay. Location wise, this airbnb is within a long walk of the touristy areas of New Orleans. You can walk from the house during the day, but have to take a taxi/rideshare from the house at night. I would highly suggest this airbnb for large groups of adults that travel together (bachelor/bachelorette parties, ect), but I would not recommend this for families as the area does get seedy at night. It's got a great price for large groups (we had 15!) so that's really hard to beat. Also as a note, we rented out the entire house rather than half. I think this was a good choice as the walls between the two halves are pretty thin. So if you had strangers staying in the other half, they might keep you up if they're wild partiers and you're not. The only thing that my friends had to complain about was that there was only 1 ply toilet paper in the bathroom. So if that's not your jam, then bring your own TP haha. Overall great host and great trip. Thanks Carrie!

Hands down the best experience I've had at any airbnb or place in general! The home is gorgeous and spacious, but the home owner really goes above and beyond to make your stay absolutely amazing!

I could not be happier about my experience with this listing. Pictures do not do justice to the space. We hosted 16 people comfortably and no one ever felt cramped. 3 convenience/drug stores exist within block and the uber ride to Frenchman is under 5 mins. This trip was really enhanced by the house/location! Thanks again! I wouldn't hesitate to book the space again!

The house was great and was exactly what we needed. Due to a bad storm it knocked out the electricity to the AC but Carrie worked hard to get it back on. Didn't matter for us since we were out most of the time. If you ever have any issues come up Carrie is SUPER responsive. The place was beautiful inside and everybody felt like it was very clean. Cheap uber rides to wherever you want to go.Easy access to get in and out of the house but you still feel very secure. I would definitely stay there again!

Carrie was a fantastic host. Very helpful and available. The house was great, plenty of room for our large group and the backyard was key. The fact CVS is across the street was super convenient.

“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
