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.

Beautiful house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A group of us, mostly former Tulane students, rented this house together to meet in town and catch up. The house is such a great location- close to bars, restaurants and Gasa Gasa. Parking was available off-street and for those nights we didn't feel like going out, the incredible back yard space was stocked with a pool, a grill and tons of seating. We will absolutely look into renting this house again when we're back in town.

Perfect home is an perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kimberlee's vacation home, everything was perfect. The home is absolutely beautiful and the location cannot be beat. We took full advantage of the pool which was clean and helped us beat the heat. The parking next to the home was excellent and not the norm for New Orleans. The location is surrounded by great restaurants and steps away from the trolley. Kimberlee was the best host and made us feel at home away from home. Thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: Wow Steve! Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I'm thrilled to hear that you all enjoyed your stay, and the pool as well. I don't know how I lived without it, ha ha! It really does make the summertime weather bearable. I'm so glad that you were comfortable and enjoyed your visit to New Orleans. Please come back anytime!

Lovely home and accommodating owner!

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a great location to explore a New Orleans neighborhood, with restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance. The furnishings were comfortable and up to date - not the "second hand" furniture that usually comes in a rental. We visited with three other families and the kids had a GREAT time in the pool while the adults sat on the shaded porch. On top of it all, Kimberlee was incredibly accommodating and ridiculously responsive. I highly recommend this property!

This property was just perfect. The owner is super helpful and hospitable. The house was clean. There were ample towels, toilet paper and kitchen supplies. I loved that she stocked the fridge with a six pack of beer for us. It was a great location with delicious restaurants within walking distance. The pool and backyard were great. And, I loved that there was off street parking!

Wonderful Wedding in NOLA!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Kimberlee's house for the 2nd time as we had a great experience the first time and we were not disappointed! We were in town for my daughter's wedding and it was wonderful. The location is great for the off French Quarter experience, close to lots of great food and some music venues. We do VRBO a lot and Kimberlee is the most attentive host, always available, responded to my texts immediately and the Abita welcome pack was most appreciated!!! Highly recommend, we will be back😊👍

We enjoyed being in this quaint New Orleans home. The pool area was the best!

  • 4 of 5

Kimberlee is a wonderful hostess. She was so welcoming and hospitable. We were able to host a lovely seafood boil in the pool, deck area. There were even large tables, plenty of folding canvas chairs and coolers to use for the event. We would recommend this home to everyone! Thank you Kimberlee.

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.
