Things To Do

Whether your itinerary includes a day of sightseeing, antiques shopping and dining in the historic French Quarter or a night of listening to the best sounds of New Orleans on Frenchmen Street, look no further for a local Vacation Rental; The Balcony Guest House is perfect for a relaxing retreat. City Park (third largest urban park in the U.S.) is also nearby and houses NOMA (New Orleans Museum of Art), tennis courts, botanical gardens, and four golf courses, as well as being a wonderful area to ride bikes and view the huge historic and documented oak trees. Bikes can be rented on Frenchmen Street, at Bicycle Michael’s–5 blocks away. The ride up Esplanade Avenue to the park is pleasant, and bikes are available for rent near the park as well. The Fairgrounds are also near the City Park end of Esplanade. This is the site for the New Orleans Jazz Fest every year, on the last weekend of April and first weekend of May.

"Traveled to New Orleans during Hurricane Irma with my gf and stayed here. The first night the owner Zak greeted us with conversation and a free bottle of champagne and was incredibly accommodating. He personally showed us the bakery down the street, took us to talk to some of the locals he had been neighbors with for 20+ years, and directed us to the best jazz clubs etc in the area. The rooms are very nice, very reasonably priced, and the food is excellent. For real the Vindaloo was badass. Also the location is excellent, its out of downtown enough that the drunken kids aren't everywhere, but its 15 min walking distance to the night life. Awesome place, I would go back if I found myself in New Orleans again." Jason W., Fort Lauderdale, FL


"Guest house for wedding"
We rented the entire upstairs accomodation for our son's wedding, with guests from NJ, CA and Australia. This was a GREAT space, plenty of privacy, a bathroom with each room (important when everyone's getting ready at the same time). Two suites for family groups, and communal areas where we could gather together. We also hired the back section of the restaurant one night and had dinner for 40 people, food was lovely. My only criticism is the lack of furniture on the balcony. Other than that, great amenities, pleasant hosts and terrific location.


Having lived in New Orleans for school and for a bit before, I had my reservations with this place for my best friend's bachelor party. "The Marigny." "Above a bar." "Too far from the Quarter." All pre-issues that my friends had. 
Suffice to say, this place is probably the coolest, most appropriate, most fun I've ever had, and all of my friends agree. The staff is awesome. The balcony is awesome. The location (no foolling around, trust me) is awesome.
It's just close enogh to the Quarter. The communication between us and their team was phenomenal. The simple ease of corralling 23-some odd people in one place, with a helpful and respectful team on the other end was simply amazing.
I will absolutely utilize this gem in the Marigny again. I seem like a fanboy right now, but, trust me, it is appropriate. Hands down the best time I've had in quite some time. Thanks, Zac, and your entire team of professionals. We truly appreciate it.


“Zak and his people were excellent! They took amazing care of my guests and me. There were water and pastries brought in for us to have. We needed to be flexible with our check in and check out and Zak was very accommodating. High recommend this stay!”

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
