I'm a modern jazz trombone playing producer who spends time traveling and teaching kids music and musical theatre. I've been on the road since the age of 18, so I know what it's like to be away from home and need comfortable accommodations. Spent time traveling the states, S. America, Europe, Japan, and S. Africa playing with legendary jazz musicians as well as my own groups. Born and raised in New Orleans, I've lived in this house for 25+ years. Watched New Orleans transform both before and after Hurricane K. A saints fan for life...who dat! I've got 2 parents, 5 brothers, 1 wife and 1 daughter, so I treat everyone who stays like family. If you want constant communications, suggestions or referrals, we've got you covered. Or if you just want a place to lay your head, chill and be left alone, it's all good! My wife Trena does the decorating and I am admittedly obsessed with renovating. Just like the brand of jazz I play, I love mixing the old school with the modern. The natural look of wood finish is also a favorite, so just about all of the interior doors in the house are stained and finished, not painted. My keys to life: Love, respect and good old common sense!
Why Owner chose Milan
I love living uptown and also renovating properties. You'll immediately feel the love and attention we've given Chateau Carondelet for many years. The 12.5-foot ceilings and 8-foot windows, hardwood floors and arched ceiling trim work are still a marvel to my eyes!
What makes this Apartment unique
Vibe, high ceilings, wood floors, old=fashioned tub, modernized kitchen, cool neighbors, brick fireplaces (though inactive) and wood, wood, wood everywhere!

Beautiful, clean, full of character, and perfect location!
Really enjoyed staying here - it was so convenient to many great restaurants and the street car!
Beautiful room and home
The neighborhood is mixed with homes that have been redone, being renovated and could use renovation. The home we stayed in was beautiful. The room itself was so clean, bed comfy, air conditioning cooled off fast, and was just what we needed. We loved NOLA. Would recommend. It was farther than we thought from some of the attractions we wanted to see. Still loved it.
Clean and close to St Charles street
The owner was very nice and responsive to my questions. The apartment is immaculately clean and well-equipped. It had bottles of water, coffee pods, plenty of towels, and toiletries. The internet worked well and it was nice to have access to the laundry room. There was a bit of noise from the other apartments, but that seems like it would be pretty standard for a victorian-era house.
Great location, great space.
Very well kept. Great access to the St. Charles streetcar. We enjoyed our stay.
Cozy but Lacking
Me and my husband visited New Orleans for a NBA game for our anniversary. This place had pros and cons.
CONS: *Very thin walls so we often heard a child playing and people walking outside even though the apartment was on the second floor.
*There was old grapes in the fridge.
*The entrace of the mansion was cluttered and dusty.
*It would have been nice to have the schedule of the street car along with restaurants recommendations etc.. in the area.
* There wasn't anything to sit our luggage on besides the bed or sofa in sitting area.
PROS: *Exterior of the house was beautiful and well groomed.
*The bathroom was nice and the shower was great!!
* The bed slept well!!
*The location was great, close to Canal St.,Magazine St., French Quarter,and Bourbon. All just a few minutes drive.
*Bottled water was provided.
*People in the neighborhood was very pleasant when passing the house.
Since we wasn't going to be in much this house worked for us,but if you are looking for R & R this may not be ideal.
Thanks very much for your honest review listing both cons and pros. (Wish the pros had been listed first!) Big apologies for the grapes in the fridge. Not sure how housekeeping missed that, but it's definitely a first. Because of your suggestions, we will soon provide luggage racks, streetcar schedules and restaurant/bar suggestions for future guests. We strive to make each guest feel comfortable and apologize for falling short on your visit.
Cute apartment, clean, convenient to city. Had issues with outlets...needed to reset them and then my curling iron still would not work anywhere but the kitchen.
