About Kimberlee Lauer

Aloha!! I am a former resident of Hawaii who fell in love with the magical city of New Orleans 10 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 5 years. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Kimberlee Lauer purchased this apartment in 2011

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

we had an amazing time at this property. The house was perfect for our 12 guests (including 5 kids). It was clean, great location to walk to activities, food, etc. Having the driveway was also key. We enjoyed the pool and the nice backyard. Kimberlee was very responsive and a great host. Highly recommend!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We rented both apartments for a family reunion at Christmas. Everyone said they would love to come back and stay at the same property. We've rented about 10 homes around the world and this was one of the most comfortable. We even got to have a BBQ party on Christmas Eve in the back patio! Location, kitchens, beds all great. Highly recommend.

Amazing experience!! So many amnieties provided!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was a large group...14!! We didn't feel cramped at all!! There were plenty of beds to accommodate everyone and also plenty of towels!! The owner provides all paper goods i.e. Toilet paper, paper towels, and garbage bags which was a big help! The house was clean and adorably decorated. The location is ideal if you want to stay away from craziness of bourbon but still have all the fun of it!! Feret st is steps away and has plenty of shops, restaurants and an excellent coffee and bagel shop. It was a quick uber to get to the quarter and the airport was only 20 mins away!! It was a bit cold during our visit so the pool use was minimal but was perfect when we used it. Also Kimberlee the owner has plenty of chairs to sit outside. If I return again to this amazing city with a large group I will definitely be using this house. Kimberlee was so helpful, attentive and accomadating. It was truly the best rental experience I have ever had and us girls made many memories during our trip!!

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? :-)

Please note: The house has electric heaters and window a/c units. It does not have central air and heat. I have lived in the apt for several months and it has not been a problem for me on cold or hot days, but I wanted to mention it in case it is an issue for my guests.

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.
