Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Bywater - Repose In Exstatic Elegance

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, in the heart of Bywater

Newly, beautifully, and lovingly restored, this outstanding historic home is immaculately clean. A serene sanctuary located in one of the liveliest areas of our city.

Two California King Pillow Top beds invite your slumber. The lovely leather sectional encourages your repose, while the kitchen insists that you prepare and partake of your victuals in contented grace.

The Bathroom!

1937 is the year that inspired this room's style. The clawfoot tub is original to the house and is sure to spark fights over who gets to soak or shower in it. Plenty of luxurious towels ensure your pleasure. Our lavatory was specially chosen for its beauty and function, as well as the ability to withstand a century or more of use. Once you seat yourself upon The Throne you will never want to stand up again, and the marble floor makes your experience one of Divinity.

Our pad is decked out in some of our favorite local art featuring people such as Red Metal, Generic Art Solutions, Jayme Kalal, Adam Farrington and Kourtney Keller.

For those of you who enjoy television, we do not offer this feature at this time. We do have Wi-Fi internet service available.

There are two king sized beds located in separate bedrooms, one queen sized air mattress and two single air mattresses. There is ample floor space but with a crowd of seven it would be cozy.

Our home is located in the main thoroughfare of the Bywater neighborhood with several restaurants and bars within a short walking distance: Oxalis, Booty's, Maurepas, Markey's Bar, Suis Generis, and Satsuma are within a block. The Country Club, a one-minute-walk, not only offers an exciting food menu and bar, but a swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna as well. There is also an excellent yoga studio, Yoga Bywater, that offers daily classes. The recently developed Crecent Park is an easy walk away and provides a sweeping view of the grand Mississippi River and downtown New Orleans.

Our neighborhood is a thriving and bustling enviornment that is a short walk, bike ride, or drive away from the Faubourg Marigny and French Quarter, and the Fairground is well within easy reach.

Come and enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer and sneak home to the comfort and bliss of our lovely home!

Great place, nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Had there been anything to comment or complain about, I'm sure we'd have found it during our very long stay. There isn't.

Owners next door keep a respectful yet friendly distance, but are there when you need them.

Three good restaurants, one daytime and two evening, are mere seconds away. Crescent Park is at the foot of Piety, don't forget to pay a visit.

The honking of the trains at the nearby (five blocks) crossings took some getting used to, and the wifi might be a bit slow--but only if you're uploading backups of photograpy like me, otherwise you're good.

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property. It was very clean and comfortable. There is a full washer and dryer which was just great with the rain we had during our stay we got soaked a couple of times! The neighbourhood is interesting with restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. If you use Crescent Park you will be at the French Market in about 15 minutes or Chartres Street takes you to Frenchmen Street in about the same time. There is also a bus route just on the corner which will take you to Canal Street but it only goes to 7 pm. The house is huge with lots of room for 3 adults and just lovely with lots of sunshine and comfortable beds. There is a full stove and frig which is so nice. There are gorgeous antiques in the house and it was just so cool to stay in a shotgun house in New Orleans. The only thing is the front entrance does not look like the picture posted so don't be shocked - open the door and beauty will greet you!

Weekend trip with 6 people

  • 5 of 5

We all had an amazing experience at this house. Jeff and Melissa were very accommodating and quickly responded to every one of our questions. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortably fit our group. They also suggest places to eat and drink nearby which was greatly appreciated. The neighborhood is quirky and easy to walk to any area in New Orleans, especially Frenchman St! Overall we all had a great stay and really appreciated all of the owners help. Would recommend anyone to stay here for a weekend trip with family or friends!

New Year's in the Bywater

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but praise for this charming house and our time in the Bywater. Beautiful, CLEAN, comfortable accommodations. After talking to friends about some of their unpleasant experiences with bugs, and shady neighborhoods in N.O., we were anxious about what we would find. Could not have been happier. Never worried for our safety for a moment and never saw a bug!! The funky neighborhood is in a great location to access New Orleans and especially Frenchman St. and its bars and Jazz Clubs. We enjoyed some of the wonderful restaurants and bars in the neighborhood that were easy walking distance for us and our two teenage daughters. Had an awesome breakfast at Elizabeth's, that truly was one of our highlights in an event-packed 5 day stay. Walked to Cresent Park for New Year's fireworks display over the N.O. Riverfront. Met Jeff and Melissa and they quickly responded by text to any questions we had. Thanks for a most memorable stay!! Would love to return and highly recommend.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This house was in a great location. Walking distance to Frenchmen Street and the French Quarter. There are also a lot of area bars and restaurants to check out. The beds and couch were extremely comfortable and felt good on our tired feet. There is also a bus stop on the corner which we utilized daily. The owners were really flexible and allowed us to check in early. The house is in a more hip and artsy side of town, and super close to the park on the river. The only drawback is there is an enforced rule about no noise after 10pm, so if you're a loud party-er this probably isn't the house for you. This policy wasn't too much of a hassle though and We definitely enjoyed our time in bywater!!

short weekend trip with 6 people

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. It was beautiful, authentic, and quiet. Lots of hip restaurants, bars, cool houses to see nearby. Crescent park by the river is definitely worth checking out. The owners were quick to respond and very flexible when we had a 6th person wanting to come 2 days prior to arrival. Would love to stay here again!
