Historic Home in Uptown / Mid-city

New Orleans holiday home in Marlyville - Fontainebleau, near Tulane University
Five blocks from the Saint Charles Avenue Streetcar line at Claiborne Avenue, two blocks off historic Carrollton Avenue, this old house is newly renovated by two French & American architects. It is a simple, Arts & Crafts house filled with a hodgepodge of furniture inherited left and right, and custom drapery and bedding. A blend of old and new (central air, all brand new appliances), it is a quirky, happy house, with its original wood floors and windows.

Safe parking in front of the house along Fig Street, where the seminary parking lot (private) lights up the whole street.

YE OLDE COLLEGE INN, one of the BEST restaurants in town with a fun, lively bar, and world famous ROCK-n'-BOWL are on the corner of our street, just two blocks down. At College Inn they grow their own vegetables and herbs across the street. You can play bean toss on the sidewalk while drinking your cocktail waiting for dinner. Just next to that is Rock-n-Bowl.. Unbelievable place. Live music on Thursdays. Dance classes, too. Seriously fun.

The house overlooks the Notre Dame Seminary, and the street is full of potholes, not unlike the rest of historic New Orleans. The neighborhood is lively and mixed : you will hear loud music playing from cars going by, and will be greeted by passers-by with a " ' Mornin ' !! ", or "AwRight!", or " How ya' doin ' ?"

Also, one of the city's best Japanese restaurants, ASUKA, is a block down from the house. ROBÉRT'S (pronounced 'Ro bears') local upscale grocery is a few blocks down Carrollton for FRESH BOILED CRAWFISH, excellent catered food, and the BEST TURTLE COOKIES in the CITY. Save-a-Lot supermarket is two blocks from the house.

Walk over to the streetcar and take it all the way to the other end. The ride is a delight. You hop off at the other end, cross Canal Street, with its very downtown feel, and mosey into the French Quarter, where you will have Café au Lait and Beignets at CAFÉ du MONDE, and later, the best gumbo in the city at THE GUMBO SHOP.

We are still working on the front and back yards, so you may catch us digging and gardening.
Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.
Recreational amenities at the holiday home include a water park.

5/5 Excellent

Best hospitality
The home was super clean, which was an added bonus since this was during the time of the Corona Virus pandemic. Jade was very easy to get a hold of and was in contact with us daily to make sure we didn’t need anything. Great home and even greater host!!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful property with Amazing Hosts!
Great Uptown-Midcity location. Home is absolutely beautiful! Well appointed. My husband, son and I stayed there with another couple and their son and had plenty of room and privacy. We all walked to Rock n Bowl from the house and felt completely safe. The small touches the owners do to make you feel welcomed are so appreciated! LOVED the Welcome sign on the door!!! Definitely recommend and would stay again!

4/5 Good

Great Stay in New Orleans
House was clean. Easy uber to French Quarter. great restaurant at the top of the street. Communication with Jade was good. She was out of the country so sometimes there was a delay in getting back to us. Here sister was around if we needed her.

5/5 Excellent

Graet Experience
The property was very clean, quite, well furnished and the beds were comfortable. Jade provided everything we needed to start our stay, coffee, tea all the amenities. She even provided us with traveling water bottles and umbrellas if we needed them. Jade was readily available with any questions and very accommodating when we needed to check in early. I would recommend this property and if we do return which we plan to we hope to rent this property again. Thank you Jade.The Spencers
