The completely remodeled bathroom features a deep soaking tub. Right next door is a washer/dryer, ironing board and steamer. All linens and bath products and a hair dryer is provided. Seventh Ward/Esplanade Ridge is one of the distinctly Historic areas in the city. It's an area in transition with a lot of home improvement going on in all directions, like all of this city. Located next to Treme' it was home to many Creole and African-American families in the 19th century so it features Creole cottages as well as houses from many different Architectural styles. For breakfast or brunch it's a short 5 block walk to Pagoda Cafe on Bayou Road or a slightly longer 8 block walk to Dizzy's Cafe on Esplanade. Historic St. Roch Market is a 5 min Uber ride away and features a full bar and food from several different vendors in one spot. Nearby City Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the country with a sculpture garden, art museum, gondola rides and kayak rentals on the Bayou. If you like to exercise, I've provided tennis rackets and there are great public courts at the nearby Lafitte Greenway which has a scenic jogging path for a peaceful walk or run. All in all, you will have a very comfortable and peaceful stay in this modern home while feeling a little like a Nawlinian. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 17STR-04410More

I stayed here for 5 days with my partner over a long wedding weekend. BOA is an incredible host, and was accommodating when health issues changed my trip plans only weeks before. The house is well stocked with everything you would need, and feels like...More

It was great hosting Monet this past weekend! She was a very quiet, conscientious guest who communicated well and took good care of my space. Happy to have her back anytime.

From the outside and from the neighborhood, you see the traditional beautiful older style building. But once you step inside, your senses are met with impeccable modern design. The owner, BOA, is a furniture and set designer and it shows. She's also an amazing, thoughtful...More

Loved hosting Marie-Jeanne on her first trip to New Orleans. She was a pleasant and courteous guest and seemed to love my adopted city as much as I do.

It was a delight to have Faatima at Häbitât Blãnc during Prospect 4. Especially since this was her first time in New Orleans. Being an artist herself I could see she thoroughly enjoyed what our city had to offer that weekend. Loved her bubbly personality....More
