This is a beautiful historic property with multiple rental accommodations. Antiquity and serenity are found in the apartment and the enclosed courtyard, that is lushly planted and peacefully quiet. Pat and Greg prioritize hospitality and comfort for their guests, and my experiences staying there have always been wonderful and memorable. I highly recommend this rental property.

Having been to New Orleans once or more per year for around 30 years I have had the opportunity to stay in many different types of accomodations, including some of the most expensive. I must say, the Bougainvillea House is a standout among them all. The apartment was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and well stocked with essential items. It is...

This is a nearly 200-year-old home separated into three apartments. The owners live in one apartment and rent the other two. My husband and I rented one apartment, and friends (another couple) rented the other for a week in October. They are in a quiet location. There was road construction on the street, but it didn't start too early. We...

A unique French Quarter experience! We found staying at the Bougainvillea House a refreshing change from our previous hotel stays in New Orleans. The location is tucked in a quiet part of the Quarter, but within walking distance of great music, food and all the things that make New Orleans Fun. The owners were incredibly welcoming and gracious. And having...

We had work done at our house and chose to stay in a local B and B just down the street until the floors were dry. We had a great time. In a quiet location of the Quarter, parking in their courtyard and great host and hostess for our stay. What more could you ask for.

We loved this bed and breakfast. Very convenient to all of the French Quarter. It is a historic location and is furnished beautifully. The owners are such nice people and made us feel like we had known them for years. We had never been to New Orleans before and they took time to help acclimate us to the area. Lots...

We have been to NOLA many times and have stayed in hotels and apartments both pre and post-Katrina. Found this hidden gem on VRBO and will definitely stay here when we return to visit.

The 1822 Bougainvillea House is truly the best B&B travel experience I can remember. It has a New Orleans French Quarter location within walking distance of the renowned French Market and Bourbon Street too.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

There are two complete beautifully updated suites with off-street parking and the Paddlewheeler Suite with traditional decor has the King size bed and is on the ground floor just off the patio. The Riverboat Suite with antique furniture in the bedroom and a Queen size bed is on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. Both suites have private entrances, color cable TV, WIFI, central air and heat and both are elegantly furnished. There is also a hot tub in the courtyard.
