Description

Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in French Quarter

Apartment, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Authentic, cozy French Quarter Guest House. Opens onto Bourbon street. Sip a Bloody Mary as you sit on the stoop and watch the crowd pass by, or stroll down to the river and enjoy a Muffaletta while watching the sunset - there are hundreds of ways to enjoy the magic and beauty of New Orleans.

This unit is a studio with a queen size loft bed, a sofa bed, a separate bathroom, and a kitchenette (sink, microwave, coffee maker). Linens and towels are provided.

Parking is on street, please be mindful of signs. There is a 2 - hour limit in many roads but also many roads further out with unlimited parking. Plus there are plenty of long and short term parking lots i.e on Rampart Street, on Esplanade and Elysian Fields to name just two.

When you book this rental, we will email you with our phone #, names of contacts, and the key code to get into the rental a couple of weeks prior to your arrival. If you have questions before booking, you can email - that is the best way to get hold of us before booking. Feel free to email with any questions or correspondence. We will respond promptly.

Our refund policy is that we can usually refund up to 30 days before a reservation. Less than 30 days and we will offer the apartment for rental again, and if we rent it before the reservation date, we will still refund your payment minus a $50 administration charge.

Sorry, no pets allowed.

About Tanya/William Abboud

Small family run business. We have just three VRBO apartments and love providing a great space for people to enjoy New Orleans in a relaxed, homely way.

Tanya/William Abboud purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Tanya/William Abboud chose Downtown

We just love this property. It is a wonderful, historic building - authentic New Orleans. Beautifully situated in Bourbon Street, yet in the residential quieter end of Bourbon Street and easy to get to everything of interest in the French Quarter and the Marigny.

What makes this apartment unique

Being able to open the front door of these quaint studios and be right there on Bourbon Street is very unique.

Incredible price and convenience for the French Quarter. A great experience.

  • 5 of 5

This propert gives you everything you need. It is walkable to everything you would want to do in the city or all methods of transportation. Being on this block of Bourbon street definitely cuts down on any noise coming from the bars but you still get all the people traffic all night between Bourbon and Frenchman. It's not the quietest place at night if you don't plan on being out late with the rest of the city. If you do plan on joining the party early into the morning, no problem. Overall we had a great stay and would recommend this property for price and convenience like no other in the quarter!

A great place to stay and fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't be better. Its at the quiet end on Bourbon St. but only a short walk to the action. Its also only 5 mins walk to Frenchman St for a more civilised evening!

The house itself has everything you need and we really liked the elevated bed (look at the pictures) but if you aren't ok climbing a ladder to bed, look elsewhere.

Fun space and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Tanya was great and very accommodating! Place was perfect- my husband and I stayed there for a wedding in NOLA. We could walk everywhere (ceremony and reception were in French quarter) and the room itself was great- just as described- clean and well kept, had everything we needed. We had a great experience!

Incredible location - well worth the price point. There is no need to stay in an overpriced hotel

  • 5 of 5

The owner was clear in the directions to access the rental and most importantly, the property is very clean.

It is a very old building and very small but these are all strengths in my opinion. If you are staying in the heart of the French Quarter then you're being unrealistic if you're expecting granite countertops, laminate floors, and flush mounted lights. This property has CHARM. It's very clean, quaint and unique - you sleep on an elevated bed that requires you to climb a ladder to get up and down. I'm 6'3" and not as agile as a cat so going down the ladder was scary but super fun! What a story to share with your friends back home. The unit has hardwood floors, exposed brick and vaulted ceilings. I recommend this for shorter stays as there is no oven, just a kitchenette. But NOLA is so hot I rarely have the same appetitive when I visit anyway.

We travel to New Orleans every year to watch a football game and will be looking to stay here again. One of its other best advantages is a tiny grocery/deli on the corner of the street about 50 feet away. It has amazing food and a very reasonable price and deliver anywhere in the FQ 24 hrs a day.

The name of the Deli is "Quarter Master The Nellie Deli". If you only ate here during your stay, you'd be very happy.

Finally, if this is your first time to NOLA and you are traveling with an adult partner, this is the best place to stay. You can save on taxi fares because this unit is walking distance to all major areas of interest. It's also safe to walk at night (use common sense).

I'm very happy we stayed here and again, recommend it to anyone (especially Canadians) on a budget, and for mature couples looking to sightsee and plan on walking/exploring a lot. Super awesome!

Cute and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just what we expected. I was disappointed at first that there was no hair dryer or iron for clothes but owners fixed that by delivering the items right to our door! That was excellent service. Walking distance to the quarter and Marigny is awesome! Good stay.

I have stayed here at least 15 times and will continue to do so. Quiet at night but close to all the action.
