This is not your typical condo and feels more like a grand historic home as you have a private entrance and and traditional front porch. The unit has beautiful hardwood floors, soaring ceilings, historic woodwork, tall walk-in style windows, exposed brick fireplaces, lots of light and all of the architectural details that are uniquely New Orleans. The updated kitchen has all stainless steel appliances including a stove, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. The kitchen comes fully equipped with all of the glassware, dishwater and bakeware you will need during your stay.

This is your perfect home base to explore the city and enjoy all the parades and festivals. You will be only one block from St. Charles where the Mardi Gras Parades roll and the street car picks up and only four blocks to Magazine street if you join us for the Irish Parade. Less then a mile to the Superdome if you want to catch a game ! 1.2 miles to the French Quarter if you want to party or listen to some great music.There is always something going on in the city and you will be in the heart of it.

We are truly looking forward to sharing our city with you and will be available for suggestions or any questions you have. We want to ensure that a vacation in our condo will leave you with unforgettable memories of our amazing city.

About Kim and Mike Rafferty

I have lived all over the world but have called New Orleans home for the past 15 years. I work as a real estate agent in the city specializing in Uptown and the Garden District so I know an amazing location when I see it.

Kim and Mike Rafferty purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kim and Mike Rafferty chose Faubourg Lafayette

We love the location of this home for visitors because it is so central to everything you will want to visit while you are in town. There is no need for a car! In just a few steps you will be on the street car to the French Quarter or to go further uptown. Plus you have the added benefit of being so close to Magazine street with great shopping and bars. And, if you are coming for Mardi Gras well it doesn't get better than this for parade watching and the convenience of drink refills and a restroom just a block from the route.

What makes this condo unique

I love New Orleans architecture and this is what drew me to this condo originally. Unlike many city condos that you may have seen, this is a portion of a historic grand home. It truly feels like a smaller version of a true New Orleans home. You have your front porch to be able to sit and sip ice tea (or something stronger!) and when you walk in the home the hard wood floors, soaring ceilings, and grand windows take your breath away. You also have the added benefit of a truly updated kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar. The space is generous so you will have plenty of room for four guests.

Awesome place.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Loved the neighborhood bars and restaurants. Blind Pelican for oysters! Streetcar is so close but also not far to walk downtown. Very comfortable accommodation. Really appreciated some of the extras that were left in the cupboards and fridge. Some places are completely stripped of everything. Definitely will stay here on our next trip to NOLA.

The Perfect NoLa Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I had the Best experience with this VRBO. Kim and Mike are excellent communicators from first reserving the house to the time we checked out. They are so sweet and checked in with our arrival time to make sure everything was ready for us early. The property itself is lovely - so well kept, clean, great energy, everything you need for a little getaway. Nice towels and sheets, washer and dryer in unit. I also loved that the TV is hooked up to Pandora and Netflix! The location is excellent and safe, just a short walk away from St. Charles where the trolly runs across town. Very centrally located. Loved this experience and definitely plan on staying here again the next time I'm in New Orleans!

Nice Place, convenient

  • 4 of 5

One block from St Charles Tavern-great breakfast(and take-out), as well as 1 block from Charles Street trolley. The place itself was very accommodating, and the owners were very courteous working with us on our check out date due to a late plane departure.

Great location for exploring the whole area!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! Loved staying in a real NOLA house, rather than a cookie-cutter hotel room. Entire apartment fitted out completely with everything we needed, plus more! Loved being able to do a quick load of laundry and a full fridge to stash our local strawberries and beer!

Easy walk to the Street Car and parking always available. Safe, and really felt part of the neighborhood with life going on all around us! Having lived in the area before, I would suggested this rental.

While you can manage to see many parts of NOLA without renting a car, we recommend that you do as it makes it much easier to find the out of the way places and explore the bayou. The Quarter is only 1% of everything the area has to offer!

This Gem of a Condo is Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My niece and I were so comfortable staying at this condo for 7 days/6 nights that we didn't want to leave. From the moment I made the reservation (six months prior to our stay), the owners, Kim and Mike, welcomed us, offered info about places of interest in the neighborhood, and answered specific questions we had about Mardi Gras, which was the reason we visited New Orleans.

The house itself is beautiful and extremely clean and is represented accurately on this site. It was large enough for both of us to have space and privacy, and having a kitchen and washer and dryer were convenient perks we would not have enjoyed at a hotel. Kim has great taste in decorating, and there were nice touches (throw pillows, a variety of books, beautiful art, and Mardi Gras decor) throughout. Upon arrival, we immediately felt comfortable and at home.

The location of the house is one of its perks. For us, being one block from the St. Charles street car and the Uptown parade route was a big bonus. It is also near restaurants, a Walgreens, and one of our favorite daiquiri stands in the Lower Garden District.

Kim is extremely responsive and helpful. Being someone who is detail-oriented, I appreciated her attention to all aspects of our stay, including the very comprehensive house manual, which we referred to before, during, and even after our stay.

We highly recommend staying here, and if you choose to, you will be lucky to have such a beautiful property as your home base and such gracious and hospitable hosts. We cannot wait to return, as we are missing New Orleans, this condo (with very comfy beds!), and the confidence that anything we needed was a text away. It was the perfect vacation home for us, and we are grateful for the thoroughly positive and satisfying experience.
