About Iwona & Kirk Leonard
Iwona, originally from Poland, and Kirk living in New Orleans. We have traveled extensively throughout Europe and the U.S., staying mostly in hostels and STRs, We love meeting new people and seeing new places. The only thing we need in life is the freedom to pursue our dreams. We think that every person before exploring the world should first explore the country they are living in. Someone once told us that when we get comfortable in life we stop living. Therefore we try to step out of our comfort zone and see whats out there.

Why Iwona & Kirk Leonard chose Saint Thomas Development
Our neighborhood has a very unique, eclectic flavor all its own. Centered around Coliseum Square, the area is one of graceful vistas and curving streets, replete with classical names like Dryades, Melpomene, and Terpsichore. Lee Circle, originally named Tivoli Circle, was envisioned as an anchor for the nine streets that extend from it, all named after the nine muses. The houses here actually predate those of the Garden District proper, since they were built in the early years of the 19th century during the city's upriver expansion from the French Quarter. Today, as in the past, the Lower Garden District is a neighborhood ripe for discovery, filled with architectural gems, magnificent old streets, interesting residents, and a rich cultural heritage that only gets better with time. Take a short walk to Magazine Street where there is something for everyone. Miles of retail therapy can be found all over. Shop rare antiques, luxurious artwork, and stylish boutiques. Choose restaurants, from classic to modern, upscale to casual, and brunch to late-night munchies. Enjoy drinks, from college and neighborhood dive bars to craft cocktails, there’s no shortage of lively spots. Take the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar to the zoo, parks, universities, and cemeteries. You can also walk to local breweries, unique coffee shops, restaurants, and the grocery store. We are about a 5 min walk from Magazine street and about 10 min walk from St. Charles (where you can hop on the oldest Street Car in the U.S.). Drive to the French Quarter is about 15 minutes, depending on traffic. You can also use Uber/ Lyft or rent a city bike. Local buses are available.

Perfect in every way!
Home was exactly as described. They have really thought of everything. Neighborhood is quite. Street parking was adequate and we left the car parked the whole time and walked or ubered our way. Very comfortable stay. Owners were friendly, they live next door but left us on our own. Would absolutely stay here again. Can’t go wrong!
Thank you very much!!
Near us there are also local breweries, historic cemeteries, and Mardi Gras world, where they make all the floats for each year's parades.
