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.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time at the Smile House during Jazz Fest. The house fit 5 of us perfectly and was within walking distance to bars and music venues on Frenchman St and in the Quarter. Jesse was very easy to contact and very flexible with our checkin/checkout times. We would love to stay in this same place next time we visit!

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!
