Because the apartment has its own entrance, and does not share amenities with the main house, there are very few "house rules". We only ask that the apartment be treated as your own. Of course, having friends over to visit is perfectly acceptable .... just no wild parties :)
My wife and I have lived in New Orleans for over 15 years, originally from Arkansas and Mississippi, respectively. Our interests these days are primarily around playing and traveling with our two children, 2 and 4 years old. New Orleans is a great place to live and/or visit with children, offering plenty of outdoors and kid-friendly cultural experiences. For our guests, whether they be single, couples, friends, or families with children, we are interested in helping them enjoy their New Orleans experience. We love this City, and would like to help highlight some of the hidden spots for our guests. One of the most unique and enjoyable aspects of New Orleans is its "walkability". It is important, in our opinion, if you visit New Orleans to stay in a neighborhood that has this characteristic (stay away from the burbs). New Orleans proper has several unique, walkable neighborhoods that all offer great experiences. We live in an historical portion of Mid-City, along Bayou St. John, which is one of the first settlements in New Orleans. From our house, we point guests to walkable locations such as a stroll down Bayou St. John to City Park, where you can have beignets and coffee in the park, or lunch at the New Orleans Museum of Art ... or walk to the Fair Grounds to enjoy horse racing or the Jazz Festival, depending on the time of year ... or to a number of fine dining or casual restaurants ... or to the trolley line for a quick trip to the French Quarter ... or many other walkable spots. We truly want to share the New Orleans experience with our guests, while respecting their privacy.
