This listing is for our 3rd bedroom. It has a shared bathroom. See our other listings #1 or #4 for a private en-suite.
The room does use a shared bathroom, but as most of our guests are focused on exploring the town, this is rarely more than an inconvenience. If you would prefer a room with a private bathroom, we would like to recommend our other listings in our house Creole Cottage in historic Treme #1 and #4.
The Cottage started life as a two family home shortly before the American Civil war and has been added to a number of times over the years, unfortunately the specifics of its history are difficult to pin down (although we can make some educated guesses).
It's a 20 minute walk(15 minute power walk!) to the French Quarter under those gorgeous 200 year old Oaks, surrounded by gorgeous 200 year old houses, on the former streetcar line.
We have four beautiful rescued cats. Miss Doris Day from the Bronx and a few locals, Minnie Mouse, Rocky Raccoon, and Prince Harry.
Rick born on NYC and grew up on Long Island, and when he was 17 I moved to New Zealand with my parents and two sisters. He studied at Auckland University and Graduated with a Degree in Architecture, one of the highlights was designing his brothers’ holiday home on Waiheke Island NZ. He's renovated houses in NZ, San Francisco, and now New Orleans.
I started playing Trumpet in elementary school and never stopped, I play regularly around New Orleans & Auckland NZ.
I moved to New Orleans in 2010 with my wife Liz and we love it! Since then I’ve been working on our house and playing with various bands around New Orleans including my own group the Rick Roff Trio.
Avery Moved here from New Zealand in 2013 to help on the renovation, he’s a Jack of all trades with a background in technology but he spends his downtime creating industrial lighting and has personally either created or restored most of the lighting in the house.
His other Artistic projects include leatherwork (specialising in costume armor) and the occasional piece of furniture. He sells publicly through Secondline Arts & Antiques in the French Quarter, but if you see something you like feel free to ask him if it’s available or whether you can commission something similar.
As of late November Rick and Liz are currently taking an extended break from Airbnb to spend time with Ricks elderly mother in New Zealand while Avery runs things here in New Orleans
Historic Treme, Esplanade Ridge, Lower 7th Ward, our neighborhood gets called different names by different people.
Historically our neighborhood was part of the Creole side of town (as opposed to the “American” side) and just a stones’ throw from Esplanade Avenue and it’s centuries old Oak trees.
Most of the houses in our area predate the Civil war (Creole Cottages and Shotguns) although there are a few places that are more modern (or have been “modernized”) which gives the neighborhood a sense of age that’s impossible to replicate. While it’s true that there are still a number of houses in the area that are currently unoccupied, that number is gradually dwindling and is mostly an aftereffect of Hurricane Katrina. The area is also dotted with small restaurants and Cafes, perfect if you’re looking to get away from the Crowds.
Logistically, we’re centrally located and convenient to the French Quarter but not close enough to feel trapped by it while Esplanade Ave forms a direct (and safe) pathway that’s well-traveled day and night. Alternately you can follow Esplanade away from the French Quarter and explore New Orleans City Park (Designed by the same person as Central Park NYC and 50% larger).
City Park is a great place to visit, not only for its landscaped scenery but also because it hosts the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) as well as its free attached sculpture garden.
Safety is a major concern for many of our guests as New Orleans doesn’t have the best reputation in that regard; we can honestly say that our neighborhood is quite safe, we’re less than a block from a main road (Esplanade) that’s well lit and well-traveled at all times of the day and night.
If you aren’t comfortable with walking back to our place, Uber or Lyft usually run less than $10, although frankly, the French Quarter is the most dangerous place most tourists are likely to visit, even then, incidents involving our guests are incredibly rare.
