Please see reviews which all state pictures do not do the house justice! House just listed in April of 2014, please be patient while we amass reviews.

Full closet, large dresser, mantle, flat screen TV and IPod dock/radio.

Beyond the second bedroom is the amazing updated eat in kitchen w table seating for 8, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc. Stainless everything! Off kitchen is the bathroom, laundry room, and back yard with deck and patio furniture. The bathroom features an amazing oversized walk in tile shower.

The house features a great covered front porch with patio furniture, 10-12 foot high ceilings throughout house, original wide planked wooden floors, tile floors in kitchen and baths, tons of natural lighting, classic local art, and much more.

The home is great for families and groups of all lifestyles. The 30’x30’ backyard is a perfect sized for private events. The neighborhood is friendly and accommodating to all, host to many local bars and restaurants for all tastes and styles. The home is non-smoking, but smoking is permitted outside in courtyard.

What you should know. This neighborhood like most in the city of New Orleans is culturally diverse, up and coming, and in a state of gentrification. In short, you must be comfortable with being exposed to all walks of life.

Also it is important to understand the lay out of the house. It is a classic New Orleans architecture style known as a Shotgun House. Meaning you walk through each room to get to the next. There are no separate hallways.

Bonus. World famous street artist Banksy has a well known piece The Umbrella Girl on a building right across the street.

About Jesse

I have searched for a second home in this neighborhood for several years. I feel that I have found the perfect location, central to everything you need, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. I am extending my home to you when I am not there because it is too beautiful not to share.

Jesse purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Jesse chose Downtown

3 blocks form Frenchman street which has the best music and food to be found in New Orleans.

1 block from French Quarter.

Tons of amazing restaurants and shops within the surrounding blocks.

Safe and friendly residential neighborhood.

What makes this apartment unique

Historic home with all the right updates while keeping all the important vintage features.

10-12 foot ceilings and floor plan make for a very cozy yet open home.

Amazing front porch and back yard with deck.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with four of my girl friends for a long weekend. Communicating with Jesse was so easy and everything about the house exceeded expectations. The house had all the extra amenities to make us feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to come back myself soon!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 people sleep very comfortably! Very short walk to Frenchman (10 min) and about 15-20ish to the action around Bourbon. We walked during the day then typically Uber at night. Had no problem grabbing an uber fairly quickly. As noted in previous reviews, it is an up and coming area. We were advised to turn left when we left the house, and we were always with each other. But honestly, we never felt uncomfortable. We come from the NYC area so we are used to diverse urban environments....really felt we were living like the locals. Buffy's is a great bar close by, and we had a couple of great brunchs (Paladar 511 and The Ruby Slipper). As far as the house itself: very comfortable beds, bathroom is big, towels were great, kitchen huge (although we didn't use it), and great outdoor space. You enter the house with a code that is individualized to your stay, so we didn't have to worry about keys etc with a group of our size. There is also an alarm system which provided an extra sense of security. Great stay, thanks Jesse!

Great location and a nice house!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well located on a short 15min walk from the action of Bourbon and Frenchman Streets. The owner Jesse is great to work with. This stay was a great value! The backyard courtyard and deck was really neat and the house was clean and modern on the inside. The corner store that is literally a stone's throw away from the house has AWESOME food including New York Times renowned Po' Boys and good breakfast for a fair price. I really think that if you have a small group up to 6 and want access to the French Quarter without the super high prices of the hotels then you will be pleased. I can't say it enough that the owner Jesse was excellent. He kept open communication and even answered a text at almost 1am! Enjoy New Orleans and stay at NOLA Smile!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I booked the house for a girls getaway as a surprise for my mother's birthday. Jesse was very helpful and always responded quickly when I emailed him. The location is great if you are looking to explore the French Quarter and the Marigny (locals neighborhood).

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great home base for our stay during Jazz Fest. The house is in great condition, with new kitchen and bathroom. Also has a giant patio for gatherings. Jesse was very easy to work with and accommodating. Frenchmen Street and the Jazz clubs are an easy walk, and right next door are some of the best shrimp po boys in town.
