Doctor Gumbo Guesthouse
- SQF 1,500
The quintessential New Orleans experience awaits with the Doctor Gumbo Guesthouse – a brand new rental property in a 100+ year old home, located just steps from the beautiful Bayou St. John. With three queen-sized beds, it's perfect for families or couples, and is just 10 minutes or less from the French Quarter and all major sites by car, bus or bike.
Centrally located in New Orleans' oldest neighborhood (Faubourg St. John in Mid-City), the Guesthouse is just steps from the historic Bayou St. John, City Park, Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras' Endymion parade, Rock 'N' Roll Marathon, Crescent City Classic, with the streetcar, eateries, bars, coffee shops and grocery stores nearby.
With their tree-lined streets and avenues, gathering places, and landmarks, the Mid-City and Bayou St. John neighborhoods are decidedly more tranquil than their downtown counterparts. You're not likely to find "Huge-Ass Beers to Go" or music blaring out of every doorway here. Instead, you'll find a quieter charm in the gardens, galleries, and lagoons of City Park, in the cemeteries with their elaborately constructed tombs, and on the tree-shaded patios and decks of restaurants and cafés, where you can listen to the church bells keep time as you relax with a cold drink.
Above the French Quarter and below the lakefront, neither Uptown nor quite downtown, Mid-City embraces everything from massive, lush City Park to storefronts along gritty Broad Street. The neighborhood hosts more than a dozen festivals and celebrations a year, from block parties like the Bayou Boogaloo to grand-scale mega-events like the Voodoo Experience.
The Doctor Gumbo Guesthouse was designed as your quiet oasis in the middle of this ever-festive city. Equipped with a full kitchen, laundry and large outdoor patio with kids' swing set, we also offer complimentary use of our kayaks and bikes...great for use along the Bayou St. John.
The Guesthouse is available in compliance with local laws, and provides an affordable, safe accommodation for New Orleanians and travelers alike. There is no smoking permitted on the property.
