About Louis Bischoff

Louis and Molly have been married since 2007. Louis was brave enough to move from Mobile, AL - into "Molly's" world in New Orleans. In addition to being the "Renovators" for this beautiful historic home, we are raising our amazing daughter, along with 1 dog, 4 cats and a goose named "Begneit"

Louis Bischoff purchased this studio in 1995

Why Louis Bischoff chose Uptown-Carrollton

I knew it when I first saw the house. It needed my attention, and I wanted to give it. You can get away from the city and still be in the city. Depending on the wind, the sounds of the street car, river boats and train remind me that my house is located near the River. Carrollton was laid out by Charles Zimpel in 1833, and annexed by New Orleans in 1874.

What makes this studio unique

I can hide from Mardi-Gras up here, or venture out and join the fun within a 15 minute street car ride.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic hide away. close to everything. Great bed. Great hosts. Don't miss The Cowbell on Oak for burgers!

This place is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance of Tulane University. There are many restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance as well or it is very easy to catch the street car to downtown. The house itself is very clean and Louis has thought of everything you might need while staying there. The kitchen is well stocked, the bed is comfortable, and the decor is very cute! Louis was also more than accommodating and responded to my messages almost immediately. We arrived very late at night and it was no problem checking in. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay Uptown or close to Tulane. I would love to stay here again!

great location for visiting student

  • 5 of 5

Cute little studio close to Loyola, Tulane, Street Car, Audobon Park. Always easy to park right out front, Oak Street shopping is a great way to spend some time lounging at a cafe. The house itself is super clean, has all the online and tv needs, plenty of kitchen things, microwave, fridge, bar to sit at. Beautiful Garden, secure and safe. Thanks to hosts!

Hip fun place to stay in Carrollton near streetcar

What a great quiet and hip apartment in beautiful quaint neighborhood of Carrollton not far from Tulane and even closer to the streetcar. Loved being able to walk to great places to eat including Jacques-Imo's Cafe. Would definitely stay there again!

Fantastic Location - Fabulous Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is just as it is noted in the descriptions. Louis was a great host that helped us with special accommodations. Don't miss visiting Snake and Jake's Christmas Club just a few blocks away for a cold beverage.
