http://www.vrbo.com/180206
This house is the ideal location for Superdome and Convention Center events (10 minute drive). Located four houses off renowned Magazine Street. This New Orleans home is ideally located for a casual stroll to antique and eclectic shops, unique restaurants, the many bars and coffeehouses, or to just enjoy the scenic street shaded by beautiful old oak trees. In the heart of historic uptown New Orleans, you are only a streetcar ride from many local attractions. The St. Charles Avenue Streetcar takes you to the famous French Quarter; the Convention Center; the Riverwalk; and the Superdome; all within three miles.

The following is just a sampling of my favorite restaurants, music venues, and fun things to do close to my home:

Walking distance:
Mona’s: excellent Mediterranean food, inexpensive, BYOL; Baru: (great tapas) Jamaican cuisine; 2 fantastic French restaurants: Petite Grocery and Lilette; Theo’s pizza; Ignatius Eatery (all New Orleans food); Nirvana: Indian cuisine; Casamento’s: best oysters in the city; Savvy Gourmet Restaurant; Superior Grill; Canon’s Restaurants on scenic St. Charles; Fuel Coffee House and Magazine Perks for goood coffee; Le Bon Temps Roule (great local live music, NEVER a cover charge, good late food), Brother’s III Lounge (more of a local neighborhood bar); Ms. Maes famous 24 hour iconic bar; Buddah Belly Bar; Fat Harry’s Bar; and of course, world renown Tipitina’s for big name live music, and of course, all or the eclectic shops on Magazine St (too numerous to count!)

Very close (VERY short drive, longer walk): Dick and Jenny’s: a must (probably the best food in the city…really!); La Crepe Nanou, French, in expensive, my favorite; Frankis and Johnny’s; Sunday brunch or cocktails at Column’s Hotel; Commander’s Palace for the ultimate classy New Orleans experience, sushi at Kyoto; evening live music at Dos Jefe’s Cigar Bar, Upperline Restaurant, Balcony Bar and Grill, Bulldog Bar and Grill, Cafe Rani (good place to sit outside under a big oak), August Moon (Chinese); Mahoney’s Po Boy Shop (great Po Boys!); Delachaise and Canon’s Restaurants on scenic St. Charles Ave; Nacho Mama’s (Mexican and GREAT margaritas); Reginelli’s Pizzaria; Prytania Theatre (stand alone neighborhood movie theater); cemetery and Garden District walking tours, Whole Foods.

Short drive: French Quarter, Convention center, Superdome, New Orleans Arena, Downtown, Audabon Park and Zoo, The River Walk, New Orleans Center, countless restaurants and shops.

There is off street parking for three vehicles. (Although you really do not need one!) The house is fully furnished, has wireless internet; satellite TV (Direct TV) with NFL Sunday Ticket package; two Huge HD TV’s; modern kitchen; washer and dryer. Upstairs is a spacious loft with two large balconies; wet bar; jacuzzi and glass shower. Downstairs are two bedrooms, the larger bedroom has a queen bed and the smaller bedroom has a full bed (which is actually a very comfortable full sized futon with a memory foam mattress).

In the back of the house is a shaded garden patio with a bar-b-q and hammock.

This is not a condo or a duplex ~ this a most unique and beautiful home. It is truly a work of art. I am very particular about who I rent the property to because it is MY HOME, and I will only be renting it out for a limited time. If you are interested, I suggest you reserve your spot today. It’ll be my pleasure to assist you in any way during your stay. I have lived in every part of the city and I can assure you that staying here will give you the feel of the REAL New Orleans!

For exact location and proximity, I recommend Googling the intersection of Magazine Street and Marengo Street. You can then easily see the proximity to all the local attractions.
