Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Uptown/Carrollton - Victorian Plum

Historic Home near universities, Audubon Park & Oak Street

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. 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. Also, for your entire party, we will include free Aquarium tickets. As well as dinner for your entire party at Zeas Restaurant. 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!

Free Complimentary Breakfast for your entire party at the Camellia Grill in the Carrollton River Bend on your first morning.With a stay of 3,or more nights.

$200 towards dinner at any restaurant with a 4 night booking!

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 New Orleans

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 is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Victorian Plum. It suited our needs well. Victor went above and beyond a host's responsibilities. He is very thoughtful and considerate. The house is in a great location.

The only place to stay when in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

I knew our experience was going to be different shortly after I booked the place and received a message from Victor asking what I wanted to fridge stocked with. Victor has provided a level of service that I have not experienced while booking vacation rental homes, he was readily available made getting into the home easy and stress free. It was nice coming into a home and being able to grab a cold drink from the full stocked fridge kick back and relax. The home is situated in a great location and is in a nice and peaceful part of the city. There are probably places out there that are cheaper and might be even nicer, but you cant put a price on the hospitality that Victor offers. This is the only place I will stay at when I visit NOLA.

Amazing Comfortable Stay with a Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this place amazing, clean and comfortable but Victor went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of even before we got to the house. He was very patient and courteous. It was my first time using HomeAway, and Victor was great at keeping in touch with me. He was quick to respond back to me about my concerns and worked with me every step of the way. And that goes a long way with me and my group. We sincerely appreciated it. As for the place, it was amazing! The layout was awesome, the house was clean and kept up. Victor had extra beds and sheets and blankets. He made sure we had coffee and some snacks too. Everything was amazing and we would definitely go back. THANKS VICTOR!!

Amazing home and amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this home! Victor was the best host we could have ever asked for and the home was unbelievable. It is such a charming historic home with so much character, and had more than enough space for our bachelorette party of 13 girls. Victor took the time to meet us at the house and make sure we had everything we needed--literally he thought of everything from coffee to snacks to water to soda to shampoo, etc. When I had a question about something he was quick to answer, and he even texted me after the trip to make sure everyone made it home safely! I have never experienced that level of customer service. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this place to anyone!
