Historic Home near universities, Audubon Park & Oak Street
Short Term Rental License number: 18STR-04594
In 1995, my wife and I at the time, were looking to buy a formal home for our growing family, but we only had 75,000. My best friend suggested that we use the money to purchase a fix'er upper. With his help, and a little sweat, blood, and tears over the years, our 1909 historic Greek revival home, has made us very proud owners of a sweet New Orleans landmark! There's beautiful rustic hardwood flooring throughout, with each room having cypress trim work. The kitchen and bath rooms are up to date with all new fixtures. Each bedroom is about 20 x 25 feet wide, and dressed with fresh bedding. Guests have opportunity to choose which beds to stay in for duration of their stay. The entire house is furnished with antique furniture, and the kitchen is up to date with all new appliances and restaurant style cookware, so you can entertain friends. The front yard is landscaped, with each seating throughout each outdoor corridors. We're located just one block away from the St. Charles trolley, and about 5 minutes driving distance from the historic French Quarter. So y'all come on down, and experience life like a native New Orleanian!

About Victor Sippio
My name is Victor, I'm a native New Orleanian, and I renovate historic homes here for resale.
Victor Sippio purchased this House in 1995
Why Victor Sippio chose Leonidas
I purchased this property because it was a diamond in the rough, it showed character, and I knew all it needed was a little bit of love! I'm so happy to share my beautiful home with you!
What makes this House unique
This house is very detailed with historic features that you hardly find here in the city anymore, including doors that open up directly to the top balcony, and big beautiful backyards. Homes like these, are either being destroyed, or being updated so much, that the original beauty of the home, is being removed. We didn't wanna do that here, so alot of the original work is still here in the house!

Victor was more than amazing! I have booked many homes and the experience I had with rental was by far the best. The home is in a super cool area. We could walk to dinner and bars without being in the middle of the crazy of Bourbon Street. Victor stocked the house with refreshments and snacks. He even got us a couple of bottles of wine to unwind while we unpacked. I’ll definitely stay here again.
Thanks! You,and your crew are welcomed back anytime! We need. Our jazz back in New Orleans please let the mormans know that jazz is a New Orleans thing!lol!
2 families, Birthday weekend.
2 families stayed in this lovely, LARGE house. There was plenty of room and privacy for all of us. I didn’t get to meet Victor, but my husband did and said he has a new friend. From what everyone says, he must be great. We enjoyed walking to nearby cafes, nice quiet neighborhood, street parking but could find spots near house, loved visiting on the back porch, House is a lovely old NOLA beauty, but very clean. There were plenty of extra towels and blankets for all. I’ve already tried to re-book for another weekend but it wasn’t available, so that says it all.
Wonderful place & great location for a birthday weekend of 12 at Jazzfest
We had 12 friends come in from around the country to celebrate a couple birthdays and go to jazz fest. The owner showed great hospitality, the house had enough rooms so that everyone had their own space, and the location was perfect - walkable to nightlife - close enough for those who wanted to stay out and others who wanted to stay at the house and enjoy the wonderful back porch. Would definitely stay here again!
Good time nice place. Victor is great
Wonderful for large groups
Such a charming home for a group stay! Great location, lots of space and very well decorated. I would stay here again in a heart beat. Thank you for all your help, Victor! We really appreciated the stocked fridge, clean home and speedy assistance when needed.
Wonderful home, exceeded expectations
This home is fantastic for a large group. We easily slept 10 guests. I've never seen a vacation rental this well stocked with food, beverages and other items you need for entertaining at home. Victor, the host, exceeds expectations. Highly recommend staying at the Victorian Plum.
