Private 3 Bedroom Victorian Shotgun In The Heart Of New Orleans
This is a spacious shotgun style home dating back to the early 1900's. Here in new orleans we like our old homes to be quirky and pleasantly crumbly in all the right spots. We hope that you enjoy the authentic character that brings to your stay. There are 2 queen size European pillow top beds each in their own rooms and 2 futons. 1 futon has it's own room with a small half bath. The other futon is in the front parlor and also acts as the couch. Both are full size and best for children or single sleepers. We could accommodate as many as 6! You will be staying on the first street that begins central city and is adjacent to the garden district. It is a working class family neighborhood with many generations of the same family on one street. I lived in this house for 12 years and have a great deal of respect for the neighborhood's uniqueness and deep historical roots. If you're lucky, during your stay, you might catch a mardi gras indian 2nd line parade. Although it's quiet in the house, once you open the front door you'll hear the sweet sound of a brass band coming down the street. During mardi gras time the uptown daytime and nighttime parades are only 1 1/2 blocks from the front door! On the corner is Verret's bar and lounge. They have a full bar and back patio where music and dancing can be enjoyed. Occasionally they serve food such as a monday night pig roast.
The Saint Charles street car can take you to the french quarter or further uptown to the Audubon Zoo and University area. It is not heated or cooled, so please keep that in mind when dressing for the day. The city bus is also an option and will meet you at the same stop.
There are a couple of cab companies that i would recommend but are unreliable during our cities major festivities. Also available for your transportation needs are bike rental shops. If you are driving, there is free parking on the street. Uber is also a wonderful resorce that this city can offer.
