Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Touro - Antonine House
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
We have two baby daughters. Here's why you care: We bought the house on the street behind us a couple of years ago and did a complete historic renovation on it. It's two stories and we use the top as a guest apartment for both grandmother's when they visit, which is not nearly enough. So we rent it out when they are not there, which is unfortunately most of the time.
It's nice. We have two large bedrooms, both with queen beds and personality. Only one bath, but it's got a Jacuzzi tub. The kitchen is small, but you're not coming to New Orleans to eat in. A nice living room, stereo, cable Flat Screen TV, lots of CDs and DVDs and books, and WiFi. All very comfortable. The one downside is that this is the second floor, so you have to climb stairs. But then you get the front gallery (porch) you can hang out on as a reward.
And we love our location. We're one house off Magazine street, right in the coolest section. Tons of great restaurants, bars, shopping of all kinds, coffeehouses - Magazine is a great street. And we're more than happy to give you all the guides and suggestions you need. We're locals, and know our way around New Orleans.
We're also inside the parade route, so we're only a few blocks from the Mardi Gras parades in a couple of directions.
Bottom line, we love New Orleans, which is why we're here. And we love our neighborhood, which is why we chose it. And we made the apartment nice enough for our mothers, so it's definitely nice enough for you.

Why Elena Reeves-Walker chose Touro
We live in the house behind this house (facing the next parallel street) and have our offices on the first floor. There is a shared yard in between.
What makes this apartment unique
