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!
