Photo 1 of New Orleans, Louisiana Vacation Rental Apartment


The Ile de Re' apartment was inspired by a visit to L'ile de Re' just off La Rochelle, France in the Atlantic. The host's ancestors are from there and a visit in June 2002 resulted in the inspiration to decorate this apartment in "Retaise" style, as it is referred to. The host met his ancestors from 7 generations back-- the ones that stayed in France rather than come to New Orleans. The family goes back to General Baron d'Hastrel (1766-1825). The host is a direct descendent of the Baron.

This one-bedroom apartment is in a "hot" location -- one block from happening Frenchmen Street with ten live music clubs, 13 restaurants, and a 24-hour scene. And it's just a four-block walk from the French Quarter. A taxi ride is $4 to the center of the French Quarter. This is a safe area.

A personal note to our guests-

You might have heard people say that New Orleans is like San Francisco, Savannah, Charleston, Paris, or Marseilles. It's not. The biggest difference is that the streets are exploding with live music all year round. You've never seen such "street theater." Our most cherished visitors come for our food, music, architecture, history, artists, and writers. The ambiance is most like the French Caribbean.

We live in the old French area, much like my Creole ancestors did, coming from France and Spain in 1715 and 1793, respectively. My mother and father grew up speaking French just a few houses away from us. Our district, Faubourg Marigny, is a quieter version of the adjacent French Quarter-the main difference being that you can actually sleep at night here. It's the safe, artist/gay residential area with about 70 bed and breakfasts. The city attracts one million visitors each month, so accommodations fill up quickly.

Within a couple minutes walk of your front door, you have access to restaurants such as Marigny Brasserie, Belle Forche', Cafe Negril, Feelings, Santa Fe, Marisol, La Peniche, Mona's, Wasabi, Adolfo's, Santa Fe, and bars such as Spotted Cat, Cafe Brasil, d.b.a., Checkpoint Charlie's, Phoenix--not to mention an over abundance of galleries and antique shops. There's a super market store kitty corner across the street. Jackson Square is a mere 15-minute stroll through the adjacent French Quarter.

Although, Marigny, in the opinion of many, has become the more bohemian extension of the French Quarter, it is increasingly becoming the neighborhood of choice for writers, painters, musicians, street entertainers and artists of all sorts.

Throughout the old, French district, you will see artists painting on the streets, musicians "jamming"-- French doors of bars and restaurants flung open, beckoning you to enter. This is the real New Orleans. Our nearby Country Club offers a large pool (clothing optional), full bar, and lunch most of the year at a daily rate.

We love to host nice, relaxed people-- people who enjoy new surroundings and experiences-- people who can "go with the flow." We try to steer clear of the formal, pretentious crowd-- no "putting on airs" here. Please come stay with us if you think we're your kind of place.
