About Jesse

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Jesse purchased this house in 2011

Why Jesse chose Downtown

1 block form Frenchman street which has the best music and food to be found in New Orleans.

3 blocks from French Quarter.

Tons of amazing restaurants and shops within the surrounding blocks.

Safe and friendly residential neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Historic home with all the right updates while keeping all the important vintage features.

12 foot ceilings and floor plan make for a very cozy yet open home.

Authentic charm

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous, accessibility to the quarter and Frenchmen street were exactly what we were looking for. Jesse was available by text whenever we had a question about the property itself. We had a special party of 10, and he worked with us for pricing. It was one of the best vacations of our lives. Could not imagine a better stay!

Perfect for our bachelorette party. Two blocks from Frenchmen street and only a few blocks from bourbon. Very safe. Everything was very nice and tidy inside. Very nice bathrooms! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect place for a Bachelorette Party

  • 5 of 5

Our group had 9 girls and we never felt like we were on top of each other. The house is super close to Frenchman Street nightlife and a 10-15 minute walk to Bourbon Street. Even though the house is walking distance to the action, its in a quite residential area. The area always felt safe to us. I would highly recommend this house to other visitors.

Location was AMAZING! House was great with a little of everything needed for stay!

  • 5 of 5

Smile house is all about location! It's one block down to Frenchmen street, and an easy walk about 1 mile to Bourbon st (you don't even realize you walk a mile)

The house itself is very cozy. We stayed for a bachelorette party of 8 girls, and we all had enough space. Nice open floor plan from living room to kitchen so everyone could talk to each other.

Love the keyless entry! Makes it so easy when everyone comes back at different times so no one was responsible for keys getting into house.

Neighborhood was very quiet with a lot of locals. Felt very safe walking home at 1,2,3,4 in the morning. (Always be careful, but well lit areas)

Right around the block was an awesome breakfast place you have to try, Ruby slipper. Food was so good, order a biscuit for sure!

Our whole group loved the house & would highly recommend, & if I ever go back again I would want to stay in same house!
