Stay in my new Bywater-
St. Claude home or bargeboard cottage.

I'm a food and travel writer specializing in New Orleans - I'll help you have a great time! 

Welcome to

Mardi Gras? Jazz Fest? French Quarter Fest? Saints games? Come on!


Welcome to my newly renovated home in Bywater/St. Claude.  

Less than two miles from the French Quarter, close to tons of bars and restaurants, easy walking/biking/Lyft distance to where you want to be.  Bikes are included so you can breeze around town!

The cottage is ideal for solo travelers and couples, there is a private suite/bath/sitting room in my home and the whole house is perfect for up to six friends or family members excited to explore New Orleans. 

Come stay at my brand spanking new Love Shack behind my home.  Located 2  blocks off of St. Claude Avenue in Bywater/St. Claude, you’re close to  everything by walking/biking (bikes included!) or a quick Uber/Lyft.  There is parking on the street and my neighbors are friendly.  The space  is compact but well equipped, I hope you love it as much as I do.  I'm a  food and travel writer specializing in New Orleans in love with this  city.  I'm happy to help you have an amazing time! Good dogs welcome!

Cozy little Love Shack


You have your own private entrance, a back Love Shack tiny house with everything you need!  Your outside space is adjacent to mine - wave and say hi!

The BoHo Bywater/St. Claude area is out of the tourist fray - you'll be staying with us locals.
