À propos de ce logement
A private apartment, half a double shotgun in a tranquil setting by the Mississippi River. Located between two burgeoning arts districts, yet a world away.
Enjoy country karma, river views, 20 min. to the French Quarter, 5 min. to St. Claude arts district. The levee opens up before your front door, a vast green expanse. Follow it all the way downriver and watch ships and tugs go by. We also offer a front porch and huge backyard with deck, perfect for your private event rental. Full kitchen.
Enjoy the best views in New Orleans, from the top of the Mississippi river levee back to Jackson Square.
A stage-sized deck and concrete dance floor in the backyard lead to a spacious garden with tropical accents.
The shotgun sleeps two in single beds on the ground floor, which can connect to form a king-size.
Our ground floor open plan looks out of a floor-to-ceiling window to the levee, and passing ships on one end, and toward the garden through double window doors on the other side.
Changing art exhibits by regional artists and the owner fill the walls of this part-time residence, studio and occasional gallery. Living room area, desk, dining area and kitchen convenient to the deck, cover your needs.
Located in the country village-like area called Holy Cross, a walk on the levee reveals not only views of the city, but a Marienbad-like old school building, the Steamboat houses built by river pilots, and the Global Green model homes built after Katrina.
The house is located between the new St. Claude arts district, and the upcoming Arabi arts district, with numerous art galleries, new restaurants, and creatives from New Orleans and across the country.
The owners love the friendly community surrounding the Art House on the Levee, and its unique perch on the Mississippi river. We know you will too.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
Our house manager and ourselves are on call for anything you may need, we live about 20 minutes away.
Jeanne Nathan's organization provides cultural tours and experiences in the city. She can provide special tips and guidance about your visit to the Crescent City, including best places for dining, music, arts, architecture, and shopping.
The house is located in the historic Holy Cross neighborhood, characterized by an almost rural, village-like setting in the Lower 9th Ward. It typically has small, free-standing cottages and characteristic shotgun houses. Residents returned to this neighborhood after Katrina to revive the community and help their neighbors rebuild.
We ask our guests to wave and say hello to neighbors as it is a small, close-knit community. Please, as in any area of New Orleans, keep your wits about you when traveling and exercise caution at night.
Limited public transit is available 5 blocks away, so automobile travel is best. Cab or Uber rides to the Quarter and Frenchman run around $12. We have two bicycles for you to borrow at no extra cost.
Two blocks away is Cafe Dauphine, a white-tablecloth neighborhood bistro serving amazing Southern classics. A short ride further is Pirogue's Whiskey Bayou, a down home bar/restaurant, and Gerald's Donuts with fresh morning coffee and treats. A 5-minute drive to the St. Claude Arts District/ Bywater neighborhood showcases emerging artists as well as many new restaurants and shops.
We expect our guests to respect our house (including the art) and our neighbors. There is no smoking in the house. If you plan to host an event or bring over other people aside from the guests on the reservation, please check with us ahead of time!
