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 "Renovators" for this beautiful historic home, we are raising our amazing daughter, along with 1 dog, 4 cats.

Louis Bischoff purchased this studio in 1995

Why Louis Bischoff chose Uptown-Carrollton

I knew it when I first saw the house. It needed me 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 trains remind me that my house is located near the river. Carrollton was laid out by Charles Zimple 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 15 minute street car ride.

Fun space, good location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed the considerable hospitality of New Orleans, especially our lodging. The space is comfy and unassuming, suitable for 3 friends to sleep, make coffee and breakfast, and then access both a wonderful neighborhood and the larger city. Plenty of small details I appreciated, good towels (who doesn't love quality linens??), plenty of kitchen gadgetry, very clean, nice little patio, and we felt very safe. Thanks for a lovely week.

Good for a weekend in N.O.

  • 4 of 5

This is an apartment in a multi-family flat. As far as cleanliness, it passed my Clorox wipe test, and it appeared the owners had recently done some upgrades to the bathroom and kitchen.

It doesn't get 5 stars because I wish it was just a little closer to the action (Bourbon or Frenchmen street). You could definitely run up a high uber/lyft bill depending on where your headed. Also, there was a huge dead bug right in the middle of the floor when we walked in...kind of hard to understand how the cleaning crew missed that. After seeing that, we did a thorough look through of the place, but we didn't notice any bug nest or more critters. We're assuming the dead bug was an isolated issue.....again, the place passed the Clorox white wipe test in most areas.

We liked how the owners included all the necessary kitchen utensils and commonly forgotten bath items (I.e. lotion and/or bath gels).

The owners made themselves accessible, but there was no need to contact them because everything in the house is clearly labeled.

All in all, it gets the job done. I'd recommend this place for a girls or guys weekend out (sleeps 4 comfortably and your crew could just split the uber/lyft bill). I was there just seeing the town with my buddy. It really wasn't sexy enough for a romantic weekend (husband and wife) in my opinion.

We have stayed at both places on Zimple Street and loved them both. This was our favorite. Loved the tucked away feel and super cute decor! Owners provided all the necessities plus extras that made out stay care free and relaxing. We will definitely be back!!

San Diego, California

Location is excellent

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to fine little cafes, like Satsuma Cafe and Maple Street Patisserie, both with tasty breakfast items and good coffee. Both Carrollton and St. Charles street cars are close, and Uber works great when time is of the essence. The place is cute, quaint, and well appointed. Highly recommended.
