About listing

This SECOND STORY condo is situated in the Bywater (NOW EQUIPT WITH CENTRAL AIR AND HEAT) – 2 bedrooms (3 beds), parking off street, and very close to public transportation. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!! The unit is near almost everything in New Orleans. It's located on one of New Orleans major streets. The trendy, hipster neighborhood that's just five minutes downriver from the French Quarter. Food & Wine Magazine calls the Bywater New Orleans Hottest Neighborhood. Artists and musicians relocated to Bywater when the French Quarter became too pricey. Now joined by professionals and young families, its high elevation has allowed it to thrive post Katrina as it never flooded. The Bywater along with neighboring Faubourg Marigny are historic districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They are two of the most colorful neighborhoods in New Orleans. The Architectural styles borrow heavily from the colonial French and Spanish and have elements of the Caribbean. This unique blending of architectural elements over the last three centuries has resulted in an architectural style unique to the city of New Orleans. There are many incredible restaurants, hip bars, lively pubs and art galleries scattered throughout the neighborhood. Like Satsuma Cafe & Coffee House – it’s a favorite breakfast and lunch joint featuring some of the freshest and most innovative choices in town – like their sweet potato pancakes – the tattooed and pierced wait staff really know how to cook. Oxalis is a whiskey focused bar that is also an amazing restaurant. Food includes Korean bo ssam (pork belly, mushrooms or shrimp served) and Cajun-spiced buttered rum popcorn. There are also chicken wings, a amazing burger, steak frites and duck confit. In addition to the restaurant there is a great back bar with a fireplace. Elizabeth’s restaurant is very popular for breakfast, lunch and brunch - their praline bacon is a cross between praline candy and salty pork, truly amazing and not to be missed. Mariza is another great restaurant. It's in the Rice Mill Lofts on the corner of Chartres Street & Press Street just a 10 minute walk from our house. It’s a beautiful hip space with an Italian influenced menu - incredibly fresh and delicious. There is an amazing local pizza place right around the corner from our house called Pizza Delicious. Amazingly great pizza, voted Best in New Orleans for the past several years. Their Peppadew & Arugula Pizza is my favorite. It’s a quick three-block walk from the house. Piety Street Sno-Balls is directly across the street from Pizza Delicious. It’s an adorable snow cone stand in an old ironworks. They features flavors like kaffir lime, made with citrus from a neighbor’s tree, and Vietnamese coffee, the secret to which is a big can of Café du Monde ground coffee. Plus six flavors of Kleinpeter Ice Cream. Euclid Records is a vinyl music store with a funky ambiance – it has a huge selection specializing in jazz, soul and New Orleans music. It’s next to Pizza Delicious and across the street from Piety Street Sno-Balls. They also do live music events from time to time. The Joint is an amazing BBQ restaurant on the Corner of Royal Street & Mazant Street, 7 blocks from our house, an 8 minute walk. Great ribs, chicken and pulled pork. Delicious sides. And the Peanut Butter Pie is hard to resist for dessert. Great homemade iced tea & lemonade and also a full bar. Lots of tables and a bar inside. Bywater snowballs and snacks are next door. Serving some of the best sandwich wraps, snowballs, nachos, hotdogs, and various other snacks. The Country Club is an elegant retreat that offers a lushly landscaped saltwater pool, a hot tub & a sauna. Plus an amazing restaurant with two bars (one inside & one outside). It’s the perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon – memorable meals, poolside cocktails, poolside dining and the friendliest staff in town. Saints and LSU games are screened on a 25-foot projector at the pool. Saturday brunch features a bottomless mimosa and a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar with 50 ingredients. And it's happy hour any time it rains. Thursday night in Bywater is the night to go to Vaughan’s Lounge as it is Kermit Ruffins's night. Go early and get some of the barbecue Kermit is often cooking up before a show. Another popular place for dinner and music seven nights a week is Bacchanal, a funky wine shop on Poland Street. Here a cast of rotating chefs turns Bacchanal’s back courtyard into a food destination by showcasing their multicultural cooking. Guests sit at picnic tables and enjoy the great food, fine wine and top-notch live music. The historic renovation business is also booming in the Bywater. Attracted by the neighborhood’s gorgeous architecture and “high and dry” elevation, many projects are already completed or underway. World-renowned architect Andres Duany recently completed his Bywater Cottages – four newly built, hurricane-resistant houses designed to blend perfectly with the neighborhood. “Ninety percent of Bywater’s architecture is gorgeous and historic; my new Bywater Cottages harmonize perfectly with that centuries-old architecture,” said Duany. The Bywater Art Lofts were completed in November 2008. This old garment factory has been rethought and reconstructed as 67 live-work loft-style apartments reserved for working artists of all disciplines. The second Saturday of every month is Saint Claude Arts District Night - all of the art galleries in the neighborhood are open from 6PM - Midnight. The Bywater Art Lofts always puts on a great event as do the many other galleries throughout Bywater & Marigny. - no smoking in residence - pets without approval will incur a loss of deposit - second story condo.

    Loved the stay. Real New Orleans experience. Neighborhood 10 minutes from French Quarter, close to music and fun on Frenchman Street. Must try Melba's, real authentic New Orleans cuisine, right in the neighborhood. This place was everything we needed - Cyrena is the PERFECT attentive, virtual host! 11 February 2017 - 19:01:00

    The property was adorable and very comfortable for 3 adults. The weekend we spent in New Orleans was on the chilly side, so when we arrived Cyrena had the heat on so the apartment was very comfortable. The apartment also smelled very fresh and welcoming. This was not an issue for us, but for others to know this is a shotgun style apartment so you had to walk through the second bedroom to get to the bathroom and kitchen, as I said though this was not an issue for us. I would recommend a coffee maker. Thanks for a great stay! 14 December 2016 - 13:49:00

    The place was beautifully decorated and clean. Cyrena was on top of anything we need or asked for. I would stay there again in the future 04 November 2016 - 15:02:00

    This place was perfect for my husband and I. We had room for more of course but we enjoyed that it was only the two of us. The house is very well lit. So much sunlight made it even more enjoyable. When we arrived check in was super easy, and simple. The parking was great and house was very clean. We are planning to book this place again. 14 April 2017 - 05:03:00

    The location is great, only a $7-$10 Uber ride to the French Quarter. Even closer to Frenchmen Street! I would recommend that they get new pillows as the ones they have are completely flat and useless. We had to run out and purchase pillows as to not have a crick in our necks during our week long stay. If you are sensitive to a noisy street, bring ear plugs until you get use to the noise. We reside in the country on the lake and rarely hear a peep so it was a bit of a culture shock at first. By the end of the week we were used to it however. Ear plugs would have helped the transition. I wish I would have thought to have packed some just in case. Of course New Orleans is noisy! Silly me. I would also suggest that the cleaning staff pay better attention to details such as cleaning under the beds. My suitcase was filthy when I pulled it back out to pack to depart! Also, don't plan upon taking time off and watching television. There aren't many channels. Be sure to bring a magazine or a book with you instead. Positives: * Travel size amenities were provided in the bathroom which were a nice touch. * There was a hair dryer provided and it worked perfectly. * The stairs were easy to climb & had nice nonslip grip. * Plenty of comfortable seating in the living room * Pharmacy located next door. * Depending upon time of year, snowball stand next door with snack treats available, too! Delicious snowballs. I didn't try the other treats they had available but they looked good. * The washer and dryer were great. We didn't have to come home with a bunch of dirty clothes. Beware of the dryer however. The lint filter hadn't been cleaned in sometime before our use so there was lots of lint everywhere. Still nice to come home and not do any laundry! * UberEATS will deliver to the home if you don't want to get out and you're wanting a good meal. They delivered pretty much all hours of the day and night. Just download the app and a wonderful Uber driver will bring you delicious, hot food quickly. * Lots of good places to eat near by. Be sure to check out Elizabeth's for their praline bacon. Yum!!! Wonderful neighborhood hidden gem. All in all, with the ups and downs, my family and I will be returning to this location pending the rates stay the same. It is a good value for the area. I love New Orleans and the Bywater. It was a treat to live like a local in a city I adore. 25 March 2017 - 16:17:00

    Thank you Cyrena for the wonderful home away from home. We got Uber to get to Bourbon street and the market area and it was very inexpensive. This place is clean and has everything but the food and drink. Will return!! 06 April 2017 - 23:53:00
  7. Marc W.
    Excellent place. Everything went smooth. Cyrena met us upon arrival and communicated efficiently. Her place was close to everything. I would highly recommend staying here. The house had everything as described. 02 April 2017 - 16:39:00

    This place is as in a good range of everything. I loved it. The place is comfy and good price. Would stay there again if given the choice 24 April 2017 - 00:48:00
  9. Had a nice stay. Owner was very quick to reply and help with any questions. She gave many suggestions on places to go and good local restaurants. The snow cone stand next to the house was a hit with our kids. Really close to the French Quarter. Cost us $7.00 for an Uber ride. Only con we had was we are not use to the big city traffic noise. 25 May 2017 - 18:17:00

    Inside the condo was awesome. Beautiful place and kept up very well. Had everything you will need for a week or more. Very New Orleans like inside. Property outside could use some tiding up. Not having been before and arriving in neighborhood made us a little uneasy. By 2nd day a few walk's to bus stop relaxed us. Owner very quick to respond to email questions. Would stay again! 27 May 2017 - 15:04:00

    House fit 4 ppl, but only provided 2 towels. Not stocked very well with standard supplies...toilet paper. Noise from traffic was very loud and Shook the house quite a bit when a truck would go by. House itself was super cute. Owner was pleasant to deal with and information regarding things to do was helpful. 12 May 2017 - 14:42:00

    It was clean and in the perfect location for everything. Would definitely stay here again. 11 June 2017 - 19:25:00

    Traffic out front was very noisy and shook the house. Good location to catch the trolley down by Walgreens. Had to cut thru bedroom to get to bathroom and kitchen. Nice to have a washer and dryer. Owner was great to answer questions and work with. 12 June 2017 - 11:34:00
  14. Crystal B.
    This is a beautiful home. Plenty of room and central to everything. We had so much fun we had to stay another day and Cyrena was able to accommodate our last minute plans. We felt very safe and secure here. My husband, my 19 year old daughter, 18 year old son, and myself stayed. It was perfect. We tried the local eateries that were recommended and found some awesome artwork not far away. Trolley is a few blocks away. We would absolutely stay here again. We loved this charming guest home! Thank you for everything Cyrena! 25 August 2017 - 16:01:00

    We had a great long weekend visiting friends nearby. This property is a nice walk or bike ride from the French Quarter. Strolling along the river in Crescent Park or through the picturesque neighborhoods are both quite lovely. We had a minor issue with the heat not coming on and the owner had it fixed immediately! My only disappointment is that the house is on a busy road and the trucks driving by shake the house. I'm a light enough sleeper that they woke me repeatedly. 27 November 2017 - 16:59:00

    Loved staying here because of the large rooms and how cute the place is decorated as well as being authentic to that NOLA style with the old fireplace. It was great that the ac and heater worked so well and the shower head water pressure was great with 3 ladies using that daily (plenty of hot water)! The beds were comfy and the Wifi worked well. It was easy for the Uber to find us and there are some places to walk to in the area like Satsuma's for coffee and eats. This upstair duplex is located on St Claude street which makes it accessible but it is a rather loud and busy street even in the night. 12 November 2017 - 14:49:00

    Great place!! The front bedroom does have a lot of light and sounds at night since it's so close to the road. Eye mask was all I needed since the sounds didn't bother me. Would rent again. 17 September 2017 - 16:10:00

    The house was just as advertised. The space was comfortable and homely. The neighborhood grows on you the longer you stay. The house is off a busy street, so there was a lot of noise. Occasionally, the house did shake from street trafffic, but it was durable. The gate on the front door got stuck, but the back door was an acceptable alternative. There were a few dust bunnies, but nothing to scream about. The amenities were just as advertised. If you stay here be prepared to buy basic essentials (i.e. soap, bottled water, lotion, snacks, etc). Uber cost was reasonable. I didn't pay more than $11, and that was from mid-city. Cyrena was cool and approachable. I called her prior to the trip, and when I arrived. Even though I was a hot mess, 1st time solo traveler, she was very kind, helpful, and patient. She was even kind enough to check on me right before I headed home. I definitely enjoyed my stay here, and wouldn't mind coming back! 29 August 2017 - 00:16:00

    Overall the house looks really nice on the inside. Not in the best neighborhood though. There are very limited supplies and household items within. There is a coffeemaker and a microwave, that's it. No blender, toaster or any other kitchen appliances. There is not a single sharp knife or pair of scissors. The owner will only provide 4 rolls of toilet paper and in our case 3.5, we had 4 girls here for 7 days. It didn't last and we had to buy some at the store. Bring your own towels because they are baby towels! It might cover half of your body! The beds are very uncomfortable unless you like very firm with flat pillows. Plan to use an Uber or lyft to go everywhere! It's not very close to much. It does have good air conditioning which was a relief after coming back from 90 degree heat! 17 July 2017 - 14:21:00

    I think that I only have 2490 characters to write this review but could go on and on about this great home in a great neighborhood. The home is beautiful with lots of NOLA charm from the woodwork, pocket doors, old time fireplace, iron work and great furnishings. We stayed for three nights and if we hadn't had to leave for a cruise would have stayed a week it was that nice. It states in the description that the home is only 750 sq feet but felt much larger. We tried many of the local spots that were recommended by Cyrena but especially loved the Joint with local hipster charm and great barbecue. A new restaurant just opened two blocks from the home called Polly's Bywater Cafe which was great for breakfast plus had some great art on the walls. The art scene is alive and well in this neighborhood and was able to catch the Saturday night art show but can't remember the name of gallery. The home is situated right on a major street so has many options for transportation to the French Quarter. To save a little money we would ride the bus or use the trolley during the day and use Uber/Lyft at night to get back. It always felt safe traveling in this neighborhood. Lots of local stores to buy a few groceries or pick up last minute needed items. The description of the home is exactly what you get and had no issues with anything in the home. My only complaint is that Cyrena can't control the weather, ha. We had sleet/rain and snow on our first full day which was very light and kind of fun given the area usually does not experience this. Check in/out was easy plus Cyrena communicates very quickly to emails or questions you might have. I had never used VRBO and she made it simple with her emails and helping me through the process. Would definitely stay here again and would love to come back. The people in this city are amazing. Thanks again Cryena for sharing your beautiful home with us!! 19 December 2017 - 14:18:00
