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!

Is this property too much for your party? We also have a 1 bedroom apartment, fit to suit up to 4 guests! Ask our booking agent for details!

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!

Charming Property with a Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Victor is the consummate host! He took care of our every need before we got there, and went above and beyond our expectations. The house itself is so charming, and our group of women felt safe and secure in this cute neighborhood. Victor even went the extra mile by booking a professional massage for us in the home! I get massages 2-3 times per year, and it was truly one of the best I've ever had. I would absolutely stay here again!

St. Patricks Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house with everything we could've wanted. Plenty of TVs to watch all the march madness games. Victor was very accommodating to our party. He had snacks and drinks ready for us when we arrived. He does have a pot for boiling seafood if you are interested in doing that. We did a crawfish boil and Victor let us know where to get the good seafood. Camellia grill was amazing as usual. Would stay here again.

Victor is great!

  • 5 of 5

Victor was absolutely amazing. He was very hospitable and went out of his way for us! His home is perfect to enjoy the culture of New Orleans but is far enough out that when you sleep at night your safe and sleep soundly. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful family and friend vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group coming into town for a Mardi Gras ball and Victor more than accommodated us all. He was so easily reached whenever we had a question or concern before the trip and during our stay. There were many good restaurants in walking distance and we loved taking the young kids in our family down the street to the trolley station. We would highly recommend staying here. Felt very safe in the neighborhood and had plenty of room inside for over 15 guests! We also loved the entertaining aspect of two living room and precious back and front porches. It allowed lots of common areas which we would not have gotten staying in separate hotel room or multiple VRBO houses to accommodate the beds we needed. Please take our family's word and contact Victor if you need a home to base your New Orleans adventure out of.

Owner's Response: I was a pleasure to have the Taylor's at our lovely home. Being a host is the most rewarding experience I have had when it comes to customer service, I love putting a smile on all of the customers faces that visit the Victorian plum,I would like to let our future patrons know that we have added a outside deck upstairs on the second floor. We will offer massage therapy. 125 for the first hour.with a four night stay the first hour is free.
