About Kimberlee Lauer

Aloha!! I am a former resident of Hawaii who fell in love with the magical city of New Orleans 15 years ago! I have renovated 4 houses in New Orleans and I started working on this property in 2011. I searched for a house in this neighborhood for 3 years. I finally found my diamond in the rough. I love my neighborhood because of the exciting new restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee shops that have been opening on Freret street in the past 6 years. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Kimberlee Lauer purchased this apartment in 2011

Perfect House For Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 girls stayed at Kimberlee's place this past weekend, and it was absolutely perfect. The backyard/pool area is AWESOME and the location of the house is great. We were about a 15 minute uber/lyft to the Quarter, a ten min walk to the St. Charles street car, half a block away from Freret Street where there was coffee, restaurants and shops, just great. There was plenty of space for everyone and we felt really safe. I highly recommend this house for both large group parties and family stay.

Had the Best Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying how accommodating Kimberlee is. We had some bumps along the way and she could not have been any more patient and wonderful to our group. As for the rental, to give some background, we had a group of 10, some from New Orleans, some from out of state. The home was beautifully decorated, clean, and in a great location. The pool is a great touch, especially with the hot, muggy summer; and she even had floats for us to enjoy! The pool was very clean and had a little vacuum going the whole time to ensure as such. If necessary, there are two apartments / entrances should you wish to separate your group, which is a nice feature (we just kept it all open). The locking system works by keypad which is CRUCIAL if you have people coming and going at different times throughout the day. All in all, the house was the cherry on top of a very lovely weekend for my group and I. We may even consider renting again for the holidays! Thanks again for everything Kimberlee!

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The place is very New Orleans, the location, the decor, a duplex and shotgun house! Very cool! I got married in Nola and needed a place to house myself, now husband and some out town friends and family..12 of us were very comfortable! I will have to say my group was very laid back so it wasn't a big deal but since this place is a shotgun, there's one room on each level that requires you to go through a room in order to get to either the kitchen or another room. We also used the yard to have a crawfish boil, plenty of space and the pool was a hit with the kids! Kim was in contact with me before, during and after the stay. Very accommodating! As a New Orleans native, I couldn't have asked for a better place! Thanks Kim for making mine and Hestons wedding weekend so memorable!!

My charming Uptown/University apartment is located in a great part of the city, easily accessible to the Zoo, Audubon Park, and the Tulane and Loyola campuses, and within a 10 min drive (or 30min Streetcar ride) to the French Quarter, Marigny and Downtown.

Walk to dozens of new restaurants and shops on Freret Street...

The apt features 3 independent bedrooms, as well as a full sized sofa bed in the living room. There are two master bedrooms which are furnished with ultra soft, pillow top queen beds and the third bedroom is furnished with two full sized beds. There is off street parking for three cars in the driveway. There are two bathrooms and one large kitchen. There is, however, no dining room, so you will likely be eating family style in the living room, or on the lovely front porch --just like you probably do at home, right? :-)

The neighborhood features one of the hottest restaurant boulevards in the city. In the past year we have had 10 new restaurant openings, and you can walk to all of them all from my house which is located a half a block off Freret.

The St. Charles Ave streetcar is 6 blocks south. There is a dog park and playground across the street and the neighborhood is very walkable. Audubon park is a 1.5mile walk and the Tulane and Loyola campuses are about the same distance.

Rates are higher during the Labor Day weekend, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, Sugar Bowl, Mardi Gras, Final Four, FQ Fest, Jazz Fest, Essence Fest and special events, so please contact me for holiday rates and availability.
