The Mimosa Suite has 12 foot ceilings, a 19th century Louisiana antique armoire, and sleigh bed. The bathroom is enormous, with an oversized antique clawfoot tub (handheld seated shower head only!) Our art-filled house is ideally located between the French Quarter and City Park. Sip coffee or Sazeracs on the balcony, spend your afternoons in the saltwater pool surrounded by fig, banana and orange trees. On a bike path, with bikes at no extra charge. Welcome to our circa 1890 mansion!
Stay in one of the grand historic mansions that line Esplanade Avenue; in our opinion, one of the most beautiful streets in the city, with huge live oaks shading the street. Your suite includes a large private bedroom and enormous, gorgeous bathroom with a porthole window, as well as shared access to the large upstairs balcony overlooking the avenue and our trees. Wonderful for your morning coffee or sunset cocktail on the chaise. We also have a beautiful secluded saltwater swimming pool for those hot days.
There is a mini fridge to cool your drinks and doggie bags, and a coffeemaker provided.
Our home is full of bohemian decor and fine art for your enjoyment.
You enter the home on the ground floor and proceed upstairs to your suite. We live on the first floor, and we have a friend who lives upstairs who may check you in and orient you to the house. We also have an employee or two who occasionally work from the upstairs office on weekdays.
The bedroom is private to you. The pool, balcony and front porch are shared with us and our tenants. On weekdays during work hours, our employee may share the bathroom.
Interaction with guests
We live on site, and you are always welcome to contact us, or our house manager (upstairs tenant) with any needs or questions. You may also come and go without seeing us at all, depending on your schedule!
Other things to note
We have two friendly dogs on the first floor and the house manager has a third who lives upstairs, all medium-size and very loving. You may not see them at all, or you may see them in the yard or foyer.
Our bathroom features one of the biggest antique tubs you may ever bathe in! However, while it has an attached shower head which can be used while sitting, it **does not have a standing shower.**
