Overview

About the property

1BR , 1BA + Living, Sleeps 2, Courtyard And Off Street Parking

Our house is located at the NW corner of the Bywater, one block from the Marigny and five from the Mississippi. We live in the back of the house. The front two rooms and bathroom of this recently renovated 1850's classic New Orleans shotgun make up the private apartment.

There is a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, in lieu of a kitchen. French doors open to a gated courtyard where you are welcome to lounge and entertain. The house is on Rampart St at Press St, the border between the Bywater and Marigny, which is an industrial strip with an active, sporadic rail. This means that we are ideally situated in both neighborhoods and also that we hear our lovely train at odd hours. It's charming, but at times loud.

We're a short walk to amazing restaurants, bars, coffee shops, thrift stores, art galleries and parks. Frenchman St is about seven blocks away and the French Quarter is ten. Renting bikes is a great option for seeing the city (we can recommend a good rental place if this is of interest) or if you prefer to rent a car there is always available parking right out front. The Bywater really is a magical place from which to explore the rest of the city. Feel free to send word if you have questions. We'd love to have you!

Adorable home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This place is super charming, the bed is very comfortable, and Erin was helpful and accommodating. Right on the border between the Marigny and the Bywater, there was some train noise (as we knew there would be) but otherwise the location was great. Had fun walking around the neighborhood and could walk home from Frenchman Street in about 15 min.

Great location, quality touches, lots of charm

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon in New Orleans and could not have asked for a better place to stay. We loved opening up the doors to the courtyard in the mornings and spending time in the evening at the small patio table outside drinking wine with one of the resident friendly cats, Stella. The neighborhood and location is ideal, we were able to walk to a lot of lovely spots and wandering around the Bywater was one of my favorite parts of our trip. Quality touches throughout, we felt spoiled the whole time. When we return to NOLA we will certainly be seeking out this place again.

Charming home, host and location!

  • 5 of 5

Gracious hosts who have thought of all their guests needs! Slept like a baby and actually found the train to be part of the charming location! Easy parking on the street in New Orleans is always a plus! “Bywater” is a great area!

Great place with thoughtful touches!

  • 5 of 5

Lily Pad was fantastic and we would recommend it to other couples for sure. The place was impeccably clean, the decore was interesting and classy, and it had all the amenities one could want including a blue tooth speaker, a comfy bed, coffee and an efficiency (sink only in bathroom).

We stayed 6 nights and while we didn’t see our hosts, they were great checking in via messaging and highly responsive.

It is right by the train tracks but the train didn’t wake me at night and it was charming during the day.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

The Lily Pad is a lovely space in the Bywater neighborhood. Walkable to Frenchmen and the French Quarter, with lots of charming distractions along the way. The only minor downfall is the nearby railroad, with nightly trains running. Would definitely stay here again!

Room was very clean but with the change in the weather was cold and the room was slow to heat up.

  • 3 of 5

Good location and always able to park in front of the home. No TV or radio so could not keep up with the news or the weather.
