About the property

Mansion next to Bourbon St.! 7 Bedroom, 4 Bath! Balcony, courtyard, chandeliers!

This is probably the best home (really a mansion), that you'll ever find for rent in the French Quarter. I have lovingly restored my personal home, making it the perfect home for you. You're literally 50 feet from central Bourbon Street, yet when you come back to your new home, it's safe, peaceful, extremely comfortable, terrifically graceful and elegant, and remarkably quiet inside!

If you're choosing a special mansion/home for your or your friend's or family member's special event in life, both you and they will be impressed and happy. The photos speak for themselves. You simply won't find better.

* * * * *


(The VRBO automated system doesn't always do the math correctly, nor contain the extra add-on bedroom and extra back apartment options, or the many New Orleans holiday, festival, and event rates and dates. I'll send you a quote with the exact price!)

* * * * *

This is a once-in-a-lifetime, special home to be in!


4 bedrooms, 2 baths with balcony is the standard rental.

EXTRA OPTIONS: Up to 7.5 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 4,500 square feet total (House + Apartment)!

* * * * *


(1) What you are coming for:

Bachelorette or Bachelor Party, Conference, Festival, Reunion, Birthday, etc.

(2) How many people.

(You must let me know if you will be all men, all women, couples, or mixed friends and family. This helps me understand your group, and the beds needed.) (Do NOT try to sneak in a bachelor party or ALL MEN without telling me!)

(3) How many bedrooms you need. Options are:

(A) 4-Bedroom/2-Bath House (Standard Cost)

(B) HUGE Extra Top-Floor 5th Bedroom (Add-On Cost)


(C) 2.5-Bedroom/1-Bath Back Apartment (Add-On Cost)

(For all-man bachelor parties or similar groups, I only rent the entire property, or a minimum of the house and back apt. That is to have enough space, bathrooms, beds, privacy, and also to get the entire property to yourselves, so you're no bothering other renters. I NEVER accept rowdy partiers!)

I can't send you a quote without full information! (And I can't guess!)

(BE SURE YOU CHECK THE RATES! Make sure it generally fits your budget before I do all the math and send a quote. There's no point in me doing math, if your budget is too low.)


...It's hard for me to send you an accurate quote if you list only '3 people' in the form, but then have '20 coming' in the notes section. Or you put your dates as '2 nights' in the form, and then tell me you are staying '5 nights' in the notes section. I need accurate information!)

* * * * *

This is a once-in-a-lifetime, special home to be in!

The perfect place for Bachelorette Parties, Holidays, family-and-friend Reunions, and even work groups for coming for conferences!

You will be renting an absolutely gorgeous vacation mansion and home for you, friends, family, and colleagues!

This is a FABULOUS townhouse mansion with a street balcony (!!!) and courtyard (!!!) ONLY 50-feet from Bourbon Street, in the exact middle of the French Quarter, New Orleans! Step outside the front gate, and there is Bourbon Street! One of the only rentals in the French Quarter where you can see Bourbon Street from the balcony. The balcony is overlooking the street for people watching and having morning coffee or late night drinks. The courtyard is quiet with pleasant fountains, plants, and umbrellas for outside private relaxing.

While this is my full-time residence, your space is yours, you do not share space with anyone, you get lots of privacy, and you do not share indoors with other renters. (The outdoor courtyard is shared. The balcony is your private balcony. I live on premises in my own wing, with private entrance.)

Getting married? This is where you want your Bachelorettes and friends to be! They will love the high-quality Victorian décor and location!

* * * * *

The main house has up to 5-bedrooms and 3-stories for your use.

4-bedrooms, 2-stories, 2 bathrooms, parlor, dining room, street balcony, courtyard, and kitchen is standard with each normal rental. You may add-on the top floor 5th bedroom for an extra cost.

An additional apartment for an extra cost is 5-feet from the house (across the courtyard) and has 2.5 more bedrooms that can sleep up to 7, as well as its own kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and small courtyard balcony!

(Main House: 4 full beds + up to 8 twins)

(HUGE Extra Top-Floor Bedroom: 1 full bed + up to 3 twins.)

(Back Apartment: 2 full beds + up to 3 twins)

That means it can fit any size group or family from small to large, and everyone can stay together on a single property, and eat dinner together, and hang out with each other in either the courtyard, living room/parlor, or balcony listening to music and talking - or retreat to any of the bedrooms for privacy!

The home is filled with top-notch marble and solid-wood 150-year-old, exquisite Victorian antiques.

Newly installed 8-ft. x 6-ft. Victorian stained glass and hand carved wood bar in the huge main house!

Newly installed gold crown molding and crystal chandeliers throughout the house and apartment!

The kitchens are filled with peach granite and marble and nearly every top-notch appliance you can imagine or ever want to cook with!

Includes several HOME VIDEO GAME ARCADES, pizza maker, fajita maker, slow cooker, ultra-modern stainless steel oven and stove, plus coffee grinder and French press, and more!

There is also a tranquil stone courtyard with fountain, benches, tables, plants, and umbrellas.

Plus laundry facilities you can use!

You can't get any better or have any more fun than this!

* * * * *

* Owner lives on premises in separate wing of the house. You may see me in passing (rarely), as I give you as much privacy as possible, though I am around daily if you need anything and to help and advise you. I'm only an email or a knock away, should you need assistance! (When it is not rented, the house is my normal home and residence - please remember this.) No wild parties, no drunken madness, no crazy screaming allowed, and no throwing things off the balcony. (But please do have normal fun and enjoy yourself! Come and go as you please at any hour, and be up all night laughing and talking if you want. Just use common sense and respect.) Do not disturb neighbors. Respect property, furnishings, and people.

* * * * *

(Attention: I do not post my home on Craigslist. VRBO is the ONLY official way to rent my home. Beware of false Craigslist ads for my home and any other home. Don't rent from Craigslist!)

* * * * *

* NO OUTSIDE GUESTS! NO STRANGERS ALLOWED! NO HEAVY/CRAZY PARTYING! NO STRIPPERS!! (This home is NOT for wild parties! Look elsewhere if you need madness, or just keep it on Bourbon Street - 50-feet away!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend. Things started off a bit crazy with our adventure to get to New Orleans (storms, airport delays, etc.), but even with our delayed arrival, the weekend was perfect.

The best house ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say this house is hands down the best vacation home I have ever stayed in. It looked like a museum. I had my bachelor party there and we brought 12 people. The house was plenty big enough to house us all. The location has got to be the best there is in New Orleans. We were not right on Bourbon which I thought was great for noise but if you wanted to you could have threw some beads right to it. I strongly recommend getting this house instead of a hotel down there. We would have ended up paying more at a hotel with just a basic room. We had a balcony our own beds, washer and dryer, refridgerators in most bedrooms, a courtyard that was very nice. Not to mention the best homeowner that has ever owned a vacation home. He stays on site in the house but you would think he is never there. I maybe saw him 3 times and it was for about a minute at a time. He never said we were being rude at all. He was happy that we were having a good time. The best thing about this house is you walk 25 feet out of the courtyard and you are on Bourbon which saved us alot of money on drinks. We had the house stocked and would walk back and forth all night to grab a drink, chill, or do whatever. Its also a great spot for families because if you walk out of the courtyard on your right then you were 2 blocks from the art galleries and shopping. We were so impressed with everything this house and homeower had to offer. I had the best bachelor party and I would say that this house was the reason for that. We noticed when we were down there that if you had to drive on your vacation you would have lost a lot of time driving around trying to find a parking spot 15 blocks away. Thats probably not in a good spot to be walking late at night. Whenever I come back to New Orleans I wont even have to look for a hotel to stay in. I will just stay here. I recommend this house for anyone families or friends. Thank you very much for the stay.

We got double booked and had no where to stay. The owner was more that willing to work with us. There were only 4 of us, so we didn't need the entire mansion. This place is exactly what you would expect for the NOLA experience! It is steps away from bourbon street and you have a great view from the balcony. We recommend you give it a try.

Amazing Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this home. It is well appointed and beautifully adorned with antique furnishings. The home is spacious and has all ammentities a family could ever need. It is within a few steps from Bourbon St and other tourist shops, but once you step inside this home, you are carried away to a place that feels all your own. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to feel the true soul of NOLA and escape the cookie cutter hotels.

Memorable Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home filled with antiques! My wife and I stayed here and absolutely loved the atmosphere of the home. The property description doesn't do the home justice. It is a perfect blend of old New Orleans and modern comforts, I'd recommend this home for anyone looking to experience the real New Orleans.

Great and unique place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Bourbon St mansion. Our group came down for a birthday celebration and we are very happy we chose this place. It is so close to Bourbon street that you can watch the craziness from your own balcony. In fact we saw a huge wedding parade turn off Bourbon street and go right by us so we joined in the cheering. The house is big with its own private entry, courtyard, kitchen, bar, everything! Why stay at a hotel when you can have your own place right in the middle of all the fun?

Perfect Bachelorette Party House!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay in the Bourbon Street Mansion exceeded our expectations. We were in town for a long weekend with a LOT of girls for a bachelorette party. We came from all over the United States and Ride was very accommodating about letting us check-in early. The decor was so eclectic and funky - every time our bride sat on one of the antique chairs in the living room, she felt like a Queen on her throne. The courtyard was perfect for when we knew it was time to go home, but weren't quite ready to call it a night yet :) There is a super convenient grocery/liquor store, literally, right around the corner, but just know that they don't have any shopping carts, just baskets, so if you're getting food for a lot of people, make sure you bring some extra hands! Speaking of food, there was plenty of room in the kitchen and it was equipped with anything and everything you'd need for the weekend. Finally, the location was EVERYTHING. This house is a short walk to almost everywhere - Bourbon Street, Frenchman Street, Royal Street, the French Market. It was perfect, and any time I decide to come back to NOLA with another large group, I'll be staying here. Thanks again for sharing your home, Ride!
