The master bedroom located at the back of the house is quiet and peaceful. It has a queen size bed and opens to the back deck through french doors. The master has a large hd tv with cable.

About Ninh Tran

Real Estate Professional transplant from the Northeast living and working in New Orleans for the past five years. Love to travel and entertain guests. I pride myself on ensuring that my guests truly have a New Orleans experience. As a recent guest stated, "it was like staying at a good friend's beautiful house". That is why I enjoy hosting and that's exactly the sentiment I want all my guests to experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying with Ninh! The house and property was very comfortable and beautiful. Very well kept and maintained. After spending the day walking through the city we came back to an amazing deck to relax on, comfortable beds and a well maintained home. We look forward to visiting again and staying with Ninh!

Easily accessible, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in this lovely home in Mid-City New Orleans while in town to attend a Saints game. The owner provided timely instructions for accessing the property, so we were able to get inside without any hassle. The home is beautiful. Well-decorated, clean, and comfortable. The owner left detailed instructions for everything in the house, including Internet access, and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils we needed to eat a few meals in. Although the weather was not too accommodating while we were there, the back patio of this house would make a great spot to relax on a pretty day. I would certainly stay here again, and highly recommend this VRBO to anyone who visits Mid-City New Orleans.

Perfect place to enjoy New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

My family picked this property for our thanksgiving stay. We have family in this neighborhood, and this is the best rental we've found in this area so far. It slept 6 nicely. We did have to keep the guest bedroom door open so it didn't get to hot. The beds were comfortable, and there's plenty of seating or lounging space, especially if the weather is nice and you can sit on the deck. I made use of the kitchen to make a couple of dishes, and I found everything I needed,,even parchment paper! As far as things to do, city park is a nice walk or bike ride away. We brought bikes and we could keep them in the back behind the locked gate. We walked to Esplanade for coffee at CCs, and there's a grocery there, and some restaurants. We like Parkway for poboys. Pals is a good neighborhood pub for a cocktail, and we noticed often there would be a street vendor cooking varying dishes around dinner time. We found uber a nice way to get around if we didn't want to take our car. Overall the house was clean and smartly furnished.I would stay here again.

Best accommodations anyone could ask for!!

  • 5 of 5

By far the best experience we've ever had using the short term rental sites. The owner went above and beyond to create an amazingly perfect vacation house. We will be coming back and staying here every year. This home is beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice. On a 1-10 scale of this experience....we give it a 15! Thanks again Ninh!!

Great property, location and owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in NOLA for 4 nights, the location was 15 minutes from anywhere we wanted to go. The house is user friendly with comfortable beds, nice bathrooms and kitchen. Parking is no problem and the area was quiet.

Highly recommended.

Like Staying At The Home Of A Good Friend

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of those that after you leave, you say "I just got a great deal."

Ninh was especially hospitable and sincerely concerned about our welfare. The property was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The kitchen was one of the best I've ever seen. The decor is beautiful and local (there's even a board listing nearby destinations). We always had a nearby parking spot and the property is conveniently located.

Important note - the photos don't do this property justice.

Overall, I'm giving this property the highest possible rating and will certainly return when we can.

Nearest Barpub
0.2 Miles
Pal's Lounge
Nearest Restaurant
0.5 Miles
Parkway Bakery and Tavern
Car: not necessary

Bayou st. John is a wonderful neighborhood adjacent to the bayou, in the heart of the city. You will be less than a 10 minute drive to the French Quarter, Frenchmen street, the Marigny, the Superdome, downtown and warehouse district, and a 15 minute walk to the fairgrounds and jazz fest, City Park/voodoo fest, ostrich race, voodoo festival, seafood festival, boudin festival, new orleans museum of art, st. Louis cemetery #3, and 1 block to the endymion parade route.

Less than a mile from the house are several grocery stores: Wholefoods. Canseco's Esplanade Market, and Rouses on Carrollton. There is a huge market on Carrollton that has CVS, restaurants, bars, grocery stores. Parkway Bakery and Tavern (Best Po-boys in the City), Pal's Lounge (neighborhood bar), and Bayou Wine and Beer Garden is walking distance from the house.

For the active traveler, the Bayou and City Park are perfect locations to kayak, paddle board, run, and bike. My house is 2 blocks from the Bayou.

Local developers are going to renovate the beautiful, former school building, and convert them into high end apartments. They are starting some sporadic construction but during the normal 8-4 schedule and aren't suppose to work on weekends.
