The SpaceOur house is a two-story ranch on the western edge of New Orleans, in Jefferson Parish. We back-up to the Mississippi River & a paved levee trail that goes into the city (great for bikes, runs, walks). The guest room has a queen bed & opens onto a balcony. We are glad to accommodate extra guests though we have only the one private room- we have a Murphy bed, 3 sleeper couches, a fold-a-bed, and a very nice RV, so contact us and discuss your needs if you have a bigger group, and lowered expectations about privacy ;) Guest AccessGuests have full access to the house, internet, laundry, or anything else we can offer. We have keys for the door. Check in is at 1:00, check out is at 11:00. We can sometimes accommodate other arrival/departure times, depending on schedules & bookings, so please, ask! Interaction with GuestsWe love to meet new people but work full time. We have the evening meal together, around 6:00 PM. The menu is posted in the kitchen: Monday is traditionally Red Beans & Rice, Friday is fish, but we do take "requests" & might be coerced into cooking vegan, vegetarian, or allergy considerate meals if desired. The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is quiet and residential with a low crime rate. The levee behind the house is patrolled by police 24-7. Getting AroundA bus runs into down town from Jefferson Highway (a block from the house) approximately every 20 minutes for $2. Search Jefferson Parish E3 route for details (sched posted under our photos). Once in the city you can use the streetcars. We do have plenty of parking if you get a rental car and we are 10 minutes from the airport. The city recently allowed Lyft & Uber to operate here, so that is also an option. Other Things to NoteYou have full access to the house- treat it like you live here. But two things usually come up so let me say here: we are maybe 25 minutes from the city center so getting to the French Quarter requires a bus, car, taxi, or bike; and there are other streets w/same address so plug in our zip code to get the right one.
