Overview

About the property

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 Wairarapa

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!

Softball Team House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my softball team to stay in while we played in New Orleans. It was a safe neighborhood and Victor was amazing. We were able to walk to eat pizza and breakfast. The street parking is a little bit weird because we had multiple cars, but other than that it was clean and comfortable. Victor goes above and beyond to make sure it is just like your own house. There were snacks, water, drinks, etc in the fridge. It is a classic New Orleans house and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a safe neighborhood and plenty of places to sleep. The beds were comfortable!

Quaint, well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

5 bedrooms including 1 on the 1st floor. Bathrooms and showers a little old but functional. Kitchen and dining area well stocked. Has a washer dryer as well. The host Victor was very flexible from the standpoint of checkin and checkout times and was at home to greet us. He went out of his way to ensure that our stay was comfortable. We were there with family to attend my daughter's graduation and then had to help her move in an unfamiliar town. Victor really stepped up and went above and beyond to help us out. We have rented from VRBO and AirBnB in the past but this experience was different. The host and his service made all the difference.

huge space, awesome host!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my bachelorette party here, which was a group of 12 women. Victor was an absolutely amazing host. His home is huge and fit all of us comfortably. Having that many women means we needed a lot of bathrooms, which we got in this home. Victor was so communicative leading up to it, stocked the cabinets with snacks and water, and provided a lot of other options that added value--like gift certificates to an awesome breakfast spot nearby. It was about a 10-15 uber ride into the city. The house was super safe and on a nice quiet street. There's a great deck that they added on to the back which was great for sunbathing and enjoying the weather. I can't stress enough how much we enjoyed this house and how accommodating Victor is. Just a great person who has a real passion for hospitality, and it's so awesome to interact with someone who is just a genuinely good person. I would recommend this place (and Victor) again and again.

Feel like you're a native of New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Victorian Plum has a lot of character. Yes it needs some work but it accommodated 10 retirees quite comfortably. We gathered on the back porch for a crawfish boil one night and grilled oysters another. We walked to the two restaurants the host Victor provided gift certificates for - dbt and th Camilla grille (both excellent). We also walked to the street car, a sweet coffee shop (cafe du la course) and the bike path on the river. The whole Oak Street area has a lot to offer.The beds were comfy with upscale linens and lots towels were available.

Victor provided drinks and snacks upon arrival, was quick to respond to any requests and even came to say goodbye.

I hope he keeps working on some of the asthetics of the house until it's restored to its former glory.

We made such good memories in this house!

Lovely home located in a safe neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The Victorian Plum is a charming home, with plenty of space, located in a safe neighborhood! Upon our arrival Victor was there to greet us and my whole family immediately felt right at home. Victor set us up with gift cards to two of the best restaurants and he was able to answer all of our many questions. I was amazed at how the home was stocked with everything we could possibly need during our stay down to the smallest detail. Victor even asked us what our snack and beverage preferences were and had them available in the home when we arrived. We were there during the first weekend of Jazz Fest 2017 and the home was perfectly located so we could enjoy all the local activities. Overall, we had a wonderful time and Victor was an amazing host! Would definitely recommend!

Above and Beyond Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We came here for my sisters bachelorette party - everyone was traveling from various states and we wanted a place that could feel like a home away from home and Victor's house was it. It was clean and well stocked, and all accommodations were thought of. He went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as excellent as possible with restaurant recommendations and check-ins to make sure things were going well. It was a very positive experience and we've all already started about the next time we'll be able to come back :)
