Photos and Description of the City Park vacation studio rental

Gorgeous, Lg 1 BR King Studio, Full Pullout Leather Sofa, Lg Spa Bath, Deck View

Named for its covered deck view of Bayou St. John and the NOLA skyline — it’s a gorgeous space, private entrance/exit, with beautiful furnishings, eclectic/ORIGINAL art, a king bed, spa-bath, well-done kitchenette with a Keurig coffeemaker, wine storage, walk-in closet, sound system in/out, raised dining, all designed with style and comfort in mind. It’s SAFE and the BEST LOCATION for walking to Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest (too many Fests to list), Mardi Gras routes, the Farmer’s Market (Thursday’s), the streetcar line, City Park, NOMA, and 24-hour beignets!

Guest Access

You’ll have total privacy with keys to your entry & exit; this is not a traditional B&B shared space setting. I live on-site (and available if needed) but emphasis on total respect for your privacy. If you do need me, I’m there! My philosophy is mutual respect for privacy while remaining available for needs or recommendations. In your room, you will have a guide to just about everything, but as a local (and a foodie) I’m happy to recommend my favorite stuff to do!

I am honored that you are considering Orleans Guest House for your trip to NOLA. I was born & raised in New Orleans and genuinely love everything about it… It’s eclectic neighborhoods, unrivaled cuisine, rich history of culture, hospitality, diversity, architecture, music (even at our funerals!) and the arts... NOLA has an almost indescribable uniqueness - It is no doubt one of America's gems! Such a unique and wonderful place deserves to be enjoyed from unique and wonderful surroundings... Stay once and I hope you will become a regular here at OGH like so many of our awesome guests!

You will notice that throughout the year, I do not rate fluctuate. The prices are constant, the fun is constant, and the level of detail and quality accommodations remains constant. Its a great recipe for happy guests, enjoyable stays, and return trips! As a general rule, I also don't price negotiate- the reason is simple- the detail, luxury and personalized accommodations far exceed the reasonable pricing structure. New Orleans never has an "off" season, and, I do not believe in price gouging for events such as Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Essence Fest, FQF (the festivals and events are endless!) Just stay once to understand.. you will surely return for what OGH is all about... luxury, privacy, safety & the BEST LOCATION, the heart of "Mid-City". NOLA is a special place- you deserve to see it from a truly special place.

FAQs are available @, or, feel free to call me personally for more information! I'm happy to take your call and answer any questions you may have.
