* Per CDC Guidelines, and in response to Covid 19, we have updated our cleaning procedures to reduce the possibility of contracting Covid 19, and to ensure that the spaces our guests are staying in remains up to standard and as clean as possible*

While sanitizing the homes, cleaners are:
-Wearing disposable gloves to clean and disinfect.
-Using disinfectant on surfaces before wiping clean.
-Engaging in heightened cleaning of frequently touched surfaces such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, faucets, remotes, etc.
-Using a different set of gloves to remove dirty linens and trash, and a new set of gloves for clean linens.
-Removing all garbage from the premises first in order to avoid contamination

While disinfecting the homes, cleaners are:
-Using bleach and/or alcohol solutions per CDC Guidelines
-Allowing the surfaces to air dry so that the disinfectant kills as many pathogens as possible

While laundering, the cleaners are:
-Disinfecting couches and soft surfaces (carpets/rugs/drapes) with an EPA-registered household disinfectant that meets CDC Guidelines.
-Wearing disposable gloves when handling dirty laundry and keeping dirty linens/towels separated from clean
-Laundering when possible at the highest temperature for linens.

*Additional Notes*
-All of our linens and towels are laundered off site at a laundry facility using the warmest water setting allowed by manufacturer’s instructions. Only dye free and hypoallergenic laundry products are used (Wool Dryer Balls / ALL Free & Clear Detergent).
-Our cleaning team has been updated on CDC Guidelines for hand washing, face covering, and social distancing to reduce the potential for incidental transmission of germs both at home and at work.
-Our cleaning team follows a checklist for each room to ensure thorough cleaning and sanitation.

Twin beds can be moved together to form a King Size bed and accommodate a second couple!

Please note the home is a "shotgun" which means there is no hallway and you must pass through each room to get to the next. From front to back, you'll enter through the living room, walk through each bedroom, the dining room, and through a hallway with the bathroom in it and finally into the kitchen before stepping outside into your private backyard.

The home is a duplex where the owners occupy the other side of the building. The two sides are completely separate and private.
I am usually hands off with my guests allowing for a relaxing stay, but with half a decade of hospitality experience in major hotel chains, I am available to book tours directly through vendors for your convenience and discount as well as provide extensive information about the city and things to do to help plan your perfect stay in New Orleans.
Most of the City Park neighborhood is the actual park, which is huge. But there is a selection of residences south of the park, along Bayou St. John and off of City Park Avenue.

The predominant architecture that you’ll find around City Park is raised basement, raised cottages and Arts & Crafts cottages.

Also in the neighborhood, you’ll find plenty of places to play or eat out. It’s an amazing community for outdoor lovers, with paddle boards, pedal boats and kayaks all available to rent right in the park. Take a jog or bike ride along one of the many paths that wind through the 1,300 acres of City Park. Visit the New Orleans Museum of Art. Take the dog over to City Bark. Or get in a game of miniature gold at City Putt. Top it off with an order of beignets and a cup of cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde!
If you have any questions about the neighborhood, please send us a message!

Guests will have exclusive and uninterrupted access to the entirety of the space during their stay. This includes 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, front porches, and backyard. Twin beds can be moved together to form a King Size bed and accommodate a second couple!

This Fabulously restored Victorian double shotgun is in a prime location just off the Carrollton Ave Streetcar line which offers direct access to the French Quarter and Downtown. Boasting a gorgeous front porch along a private backyard offering a park-like setting. Soaring 12' ceilings throughout, this 19th century architectural masterpiece offers a uniquely New Orleans Experience. The spacious and recently renovated kitchen leads out to your backyard retreat. Off-street parking!

Note that the bedrooms are "Shotgun" style and must be walked through to access the kitchen and bathroom.

Lovely Mid City location
We loved our stay. Enjoyed the location, close to street cars, City Park within walking distance. Many awesome places to eat within walking distance or a short drive. House was comfortable, enjoyed the games available. Having single beds was great for kids. Enjoyed sitting out on porch. Thank you for a lovely stay

5/5 Excellent

It's Lovely
Bright, roomy home. Great use of space in bath, with large shower. Visiting family so I didn't cook any, but kitchen had full set of cookware, and full size stove and fridge, so meals there would be easy. Great private backyard area. Easy walk to stores, eateries, and my family. Will definitely check availability next time I travel here.
