La Dauphine, Residence des Artistes Description
Ample free, on-street parking in front of house. This is a funky, old camelback Victorian with side hall, with lots of character :-)
We speak English, French, German and Danish. Ray is a native New Orleanian (Creole-French). Kim is from Denmark. Met in Copenhagen in 1998, got engaged in Helsinki, and married in Ontario, Canada. Ray was an AT&T manager for 22 years in San Francisco. Kim is a Ph.D. Molecular Biologist doing cancer research at LSU Medical Center.
Love to host pleasant people-- not difficult or picky guests :-)
Happy to host you if you are easy-going and laid back. We don't deal well with difficult, hard-to-please guests. That's not our style- we're informal. Old Victorian, renovated-- but with many things left the old way. Very individualistic rooms, designer linens and colors. Lots of amenities-- ceiling fans, central air and heat, Wi-Fi, iMac for guests use, expanded cable, French TV5 Monde -movie/books library- DVDs, front porch, courtyard garden, self-serve Continental breakfast.
Nice, unique showers and baths (old, claw-foot tub in one room, tiled shower in another, etc.) Cable TV, DVD in each room. Wi-Fi throughout. Steps from French Quarter and close to Convention Center (30 min. walk, or short trolley ride).
The main reasons people stay with us are: 1) Location 2) Helpful, knowledgeable hosts; 3) Price
Ray also sells real estate.
This isn't The Ritz, and we don't pretend to be :-)
It's just a nice, fun, convenient place to stay-- with cheerful, helpful hosts.
A complimentary Continental, self-serve breakfast (bagels, toast, fresh fruit) is available from 8 till 10 a.m.
Kim lived and worked in Israel, and Ray lived in worked in Germany and France. We have lots of guests and friends visiting from Europe, UK, Australia, & China.
