Overview

About the property

1BR , 1BA + Living, Sleeps 2-4, 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!

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.

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.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay. It was nice having the property owners on site to answer any questions we had. Only small down side to the property is it is right next to a train track and has trains running all night. I’m a hard sleeper so it wasn’t an issue for me. However they did provide us with ear plugs and advised us of the trains before hand. Great neighborhood and location. The Uber prices were around $5-$7 from here to Jackson Square. Would highly recommend this property to everyone.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in The Lily Pad before and loved it. It's so cute and comfortable. The owners are incredibly nice and accommodating. And it's very well located - right down the street from an amazing restaurant (N7). Can't wait to come back!

Clean, tidy, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Great location, well stocked, comfy bed.

We loved the binder full of suggestions for food and fun in the area.

We also very much appreciated the Billie Holiday records.

The train is loud at night but I like trains so that's not a problem for me.

Thanks a lot, Erin!

Hands Down: My "Go-to" in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

Lily Pad is wonderful. Right close to all the dynamic neighborhood action in NOLA Bywater neighborhood. LP has plenty of cold, cold A/C and hot hot-water. What's not to love?
