This is a 100% private guest suite located within a lovingly restored New Orleans home, two blocks from beautiful tree lined Esplanade Avenue in the Treme neighborhood — a culturally rich historic area where many of the city’s Jazz musicians got their start. Key features of the unit are a private entrance, kitchen, beautiful marble bathroom and an open floor plan sleeping area. 15 minute walk to the French Quarter, 3 minutes by car. 15 minute walk to the Jazz Fest main gate!

The Bienville Suite is a sparkling clean little gem furnished with a mix of vintage & modern decor. This is a great getaway spot for anyone seeking a fun-filled New Orleans adventure. This is not a party pad, just a calm location for couples, two friends or the solo traveler.

From The Bienville Suite you can easily walk to the French Quarter, it should take you 15 minutes on foot depending on your speed. It's a beautiful walk down Esplanade Avenue, lined with live oak trees and lush gardens. Oh, and Don’t forget to stop in at Lil' Dizzy's restaurant on the way -- It's an awesome place for a real New Orleans breakfast and has hands down the best gumbo in the city.

If walking isn't your cup of tea, Uber/Lyft are always around and generally only a minute away. $6-$10 and you're at all the top tourist attractions: Frenchmen Street, Bourbon Street, Jackson Square and more.

There are also two bike rental racks nearby. This is the ultimate way to see the city! One is located at the corner of Esplanade and Claiborne Avenue. Download the SoBi social bikes app for more info.

When you stay in The Bienville Suite, you will receive the highest level of hospitality and customer service from me. You not only get an amazing and affordable place to stay, you also receive my extensive knowledge of the city as well! Need tips on where to go and what to do? Simply ask! I happy to provide customized suggestions based on what you like to do while on vacation. If you have your own plans, no problem I always give my guests complete privacy if that’s their style.

I have been in the New Orleans tourism & hospitality industry since my graduation from Loyola University New Orleans in 2008. My first foray into the industry was my 2007 internship with the largest free music festival in the country, New Orleans very own French Quarter Festival. This is when I truly fell in love with the French Quarter!

After my graduation I swiftly moved from the Uptown University area to the Marigny neighborhood and began freelancing for a few locally published magazines as well as French Quarter Festival. Since those early days I have lived and worked in and around the French Quarter and never looked back. It’s safe to safe say I know the ins and outs of tourism so becoming a host was an easy decision for me. I love being able to open my home and share my knowledge of the city with each and every guest.

Why did I choose this house? I chose to purchase Grey Gardens (named by a friend during the renovation) because of its historic charm and close proximity to the love of my life, the French Quarter. I also loved it’s easy access to Bayou St. John and beautiful City Park. I knew it would be some work as it had fallen into disrepair over the years but I was ready for the challenge of restoring it! I spent a full year renovating with my own two hands (I look great in a tool belt!) along with the help of my dedicated workers.

This is the house that I built and I am so proud to share it with each and every one of you. I hope you will choose to stay with me and reap the benefits of my labor. If you look closely, you will see that my blood sweat and tears are built into every portion of the house.

As lagniappe (a little something extra) for future visitors I created this Instagram account (GreyGardenNOLA) check it out for insider tourist pro tips! I post about attractions, things to do and of course where to eat.


This AirBnB is fully licensed by the City of New Orleans: STR License #17STR-18263 and employs people that live in the neighborhood. When you stay at Grey Gardens NOLA you support New Orleans local economy.

Her skal du være

New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

The location is unique and special because it’s so close to the French Quarter, Frenchmen Street (where you really want to go to hear all the best music), City Park and Bayou St. John. This is an awesome place to stay if you want to be close to all the action but not pay high hotel prices. $6 in an Uber and you’re on Frenchmen ready to eat, sing and dance all night!

But wait, theres more! On Sundays you’ll spy a huge block party at Kermit Ruffin’s famous Mother In Law Lounge which is located four blocks away. If the Saints win…it’ll be an even bigger one!

Since we have a funeral home around the corner you may even witness a “Jazz Funeral” procession pass near the house complete with a brass band and second line.

During season, on “Second Line Sundays” things heat up and the party really gets going! These second lines aren’t in honor of the dead, instead they are celebrations the many Social Aid & Pleasure Clubs host to bring the community together — basically they are awesome traveling dance parties…New Orleans style.

During Mardi Gras you will see Mardi Gras Indians parading the streets on Claiborne Avenue. On Mardi Gras day you better get up extra early to catch the Skull and Bones Krewe as they make their way around the neighborhood. Waking everyone up. If you’re lucky you may even spot some of the New Orleans Baby Dolls as they step out at daybreak.

Note! Everyone here is extremely friendly and approachable. Please say good morning and hello! In New Orleans we talk to our neighbors!

If you made it all the way through, thanks for reading and I look forward to hosting you soon!

I’ve lived in New Orleans 15 years and know all the ins and outs of the city. I purchased Grey Gardens NOLA June 1st 2017 as a birthday gift to myself! This nearly 100 year old historic home has gone through a complete transformation since 2017. I spent more than a year arduously gut renovating. Now she’s back to her original beauty, with a few tweaks from me. In case you are wondering I designed everything from color palate to custom bathrooms. What a project! I truly hope you will reap the rewards of my labor and stay at Grey Gardens NOLA!
