Newly remodeled guest house with private access through side alley way.
Detached building is behind the main house; you can come and go as you please.
2 blocks from Lake Ponchartrain with its walking & biking path.
15-20 minutes from downtown and the French Quarter.
Our property is a recently remodeled mother-in-law apartment that is approximately 350 square feet.
The full/double size bed can accommodate 2 persons. (Please note: It is NOT a queen size bed.)
We do have a twin size air mattress if needed for a third person or a child, but obviously it is not as comfortable as the bed. No other sleeping arrangements are available.
Bathroom has a shower. Shampoo, conditioner and soaps are included.
There is a window heating and air conditioning unit that can be adjusted to your comfort level as well as a ceiling fan.
Window blinds and black out curtains are present to adjust for your privacy and for the amount of light desired.
A mini-refrigerator and microwave are provided in the unit. Coffee/tea service, hot cereals, fruit, muffins and granola bars are included for a light breakfast.
We have a large horseshoe shaped driveway in front of our house for convenient off street parking of your vehicle.
To gain access, you will enter through the gate located in the front of the main house on the left. Keys to the rental will be provided in person upon your arrival.
You will also have access to the back yard and patio area.
The guest house area will be all yours. The main house area will be ours.
For the most part, there will be someone home or we can be reached by phone.
We are very happy to help you with questions about restaurants, directions or attractions. We have guide books and maps in the guest house, as well as other reading material.
We have 2 small dogs who will be in the back yard at various times during the day. However we do not allow them to go into the guest house for allergy considerations.
Check in at 3 P.M. Check out at 11 A.M.
We can only accommodate a maximum of 3 persons. (2 comfortably in the full size bed and one on a twin sized air mattress)
Sorry, no pets allowed.
No smoking in the guest house. Smoking is allowed in the back yard only.
This is a quiet neighbor hood, so please keep noise to a minimum. No parties.
We expect guests to behave in a mature, mannerly, respectful fashion.
I live in Metairie, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans, with my husband Joe and our 2 small dogs.
We have two daughters. One lives in England and the other lives in New Jersey.
I had a 30 year career in education, teaching biology at both the high school and college level. Joe is retired as well after a 40 year career as a dentist.
We enjoy hosting guests and helping them with information to explore New Orleans.
