About the property

Greek Revival 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath apartment in Vibrant Neighborhood!

La Boheme is an all-inclusive 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in a large Greek Revival home, consisting of several apartments with this rental apartment taking up half of the entire ground floor level. The apartment sleeps up to 4 people in the 2 queen size beds, and each bedroom has its own bath with step-in shower. A newly remodeled full-size eat-in kitchen and beautifully appointed living room round out the interior, while the front veranda and master bedroom side porch add to the spacious ambience. The living room, kitchen, master bedroom and hall each boast a natural brick fireplace. A large flat-screen HDTV is provided in the living room, and each bedroom has a personal sized flat-screen TV for your convenience. Free wireless Internet access is also provided.

Here at La Boheme, you're not just visiting The Big Easy; you're LIVING it! Become the quintessential New Orleans bohemian in the most vibrant and eclectic neighborhood of New Orleans! The Bywater area boasts a fascinating population of young professionals, artists, musicians, performers, bartenders, waiters and more! These are the people that are your hosts and soon-to-be friends that you will want to re-visit again and again! The area boasts some of New Orleans' best local flavor restaurants and unique watering holes. I share the other side of the lower house with my two dogs, Flora and Tommy who also enjoy meeting new guest.

Comfortable and roomy - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Richard was an excellent host and we enjoyed visiting with Flora and Tommy. The apartment is roomy and very comfortable. Love the art work on the walls. Great location with parking out front. Would definitively recommend and will return.

Charming... Authentic... felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our 3-night stay in NOLA. (We were 4 adults on a Mother-Daughter trip.) We were able to experience ordinary lifestyles in the city and were also in easy reach of the Quarter for food and fun! We walked (about a mile) to Jackson Square in the mornings and took an Uber ($10-ish) back home at night.

The house itself is very old and quaint — unique (antique) furniture pieces and great New Orleans art! We loved it! It is not new and it is not perfect, which we preferred to a hotel or modern construction. Beds were comfy with lots of pillows. Kitchen was great — well furnished, and we were treated w/bagels and fixings in the fridge when we arrived.

Bonus features were the neighbors! Friendly and helpful! The owner was away when we stayed, but his assistant (John) was super. He greeted us when we arrived and gave us a brief run through of the house and neighborhood, including tips for getting to other areas in the city. We met the adjoining neighbors as well; all very nice. (Note: Neighbors were noninvasive; but, we enjoy meeting people so we engaged in conversation.)

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the pups — Flora & Tommy. Flora hung out on our porch most of the time, but was never in the way. We let them in the house a couple times; both were sweet and obedient.

I would definitely book this home again when visiting NOLA!

Great place - friendly neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, very comfortable and has everything you need. In addition to some beautiful photography on the walls there are also great dogs living on the property to befriend. Richard was very easy to work with and we loved meeting him. Will definitely stay here again when we get the chance.

A charming, vintage New Orleans home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

Located in an artsy, hip neighborhood called Bywater, Richard's La Boheme rental is a great place to stay away from the rowdy, touristy French Quarter crowd. His two darling dogs welcomed us, there's a pub right on the corner, and we were able to park our rental car right in front. We'll be back!
