**UPDATE: Please note that due to COVID-19, all DECORATIVE pillows in the photos have been removed from this property because they cannot be sanitized. Both the dishwasher and the washer (laundry) feature "sanitizer" cycles. My VRBO calendar is set up so that there is a minimum of 28 hours between each check-out and check-in so that proper cleaning and sanitizing procedures can be performed. Please contact me if you have any specific concerns...
It's important to me to create a space that is inviting, comfortable, and convenient for my guests, at the same in keeping with the original architectural details of my 100 year old house, and drawing from inspiration the colorful palette and vintage decor from this inimitable 300 year old city.
Setting up the house for your convenience while traveling is NOT an afterthought for me--it's the focus of my hospitality and my careful consideration. Whether you're in New Orleans for pleasure, for work, or to visit family, my goal is to provide an experience that is effortless so that you can focus on time well spent here...
Key to a good night's sleep are our new, comfortable beds. We also just replaced the washer and dryer with a new smart Samsung set in January 2020. In addition to our DirecTV subscription including HBO, two of the 3 TVs are smart TVs, so you can stream Netflix, Amazon, etc if you prefer. I also have a some games in the console in the living room: dominoes, playing cards, chess/checkers/backgammon set, and Cards Against Humanity.
The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, cooking utensils, knives, and many basics that you'd need to prepare a meal. In addition to the new dishwasher, toaster oven, microwave, and coffee pot, we also supply a crock pot and a blender. The kitchen pantry regularly features items like coffee, coffee filters, tea bags, sugar honey, Splenda, olive oil, salt, pepper, spices, paper towels and plates, plastic reusable Mardi Gras cups, ziploc bags, trash bags, dishwasher pods and dish soap. And snacks, of course!
The bathrooms always feature plush towels, soaps, shampoo, conditioner, lotions, shaving cream, sunblock, first aid kit, toilet paper, kleenex, Q-tips, and cotton balls. Detergent for the clothes washer is on hand for your convenience too.
I am a native New Orleanian, with French Louisiana heritage that dates back to 1720--that's before the Louisiana Purchase! I have lived here my entire life, except for a few years when I lived in San Francisco and when I worked in national parks. My love for this city runs deep--there's truly nowhere else like it. My hometown's unique culture, art, and architecture is a rich source of inspiration for me as a designer.
My fiancé Tom made New Orleans his home 21 years ago, and around here that qualifies him as a "local." Tom is the owner/creative director of one of the most authentic live local music clubs in New Orleans, called D.B.A., which is located on world-famous Frenchmen St. If you love experiencing live local and regional music, you should definitely check out D.B.A.
We both love music, art, and food, and we love celebrating the unique cultures and traditions of New Orleans and Louisiana. Did I mention FOOD?! New Orleans has world-class cuisine at every price level. Just let us know what you're looking for, and we'll be happy to offer suggestions, as we strive to make your visit to New Orleans an unforgettable one!
