A revolving door of colorful characters, soulful tunes and a “live and let live” attitude.

Oh… and all the beignets. Oh yes.

Finally – you’ll see the term “shotgun house” mentioned quite a lot throughout this blog. Don’t worry – even I had to familiarize myself with what it meant – I’m from California after all. Basically, a shotgun house is a style of home that is super narrow and stretches back a fair way. There’s a ton of them in the South, as they were the most popular house style from the Civil War through to the start of the 20th century.

Now let’s get to this list! 

Unique New Orleans Airbnb


1) Bywater Beauty – Historic Renovation Featured on H G T V

“The Best Overall AirBNB In New Orleans”

Location: Bywater 

AirBNB Plus: Yes 

Superhost: Yes

Price: $170+ USD per night 

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/14867691

This fully renovated one bedroom Victorian house is my pick for the best overall New Orleans AirBNB, and I bet it will be your favorite stay ever too! The home even featured in 2017 on “New Orleans Reno” – a HGTV production. The contemporary AirBNB Plus has towering ceilings, spacious rooms, indoor fireplaces and air conditioning in almost every room, an adorable front porch and has retained much of its historical charm. It is located in the bohemian neighborhood of Bywater, where you’ll be surrounded by an endless variety of places to eat, drink, party, shop and stroll outside. It’s only 10 minutes drive to the French Quarter. Don’t miss out!

Guest review: “This house was perfect. Very clean, cute decor, great location! The neighborhood is super cute. Fun restaurants and bars only steps away. We walked to the rusty metal bridge and park on the levee. We live in Baton Rouge and have spent a lot of time in Nola but never in Bywater. I would definitely recommend this area if you are looking to avoid the touristy hustle of the French quarter but still want to enjoy the city! A great local experience. I would love to live in this area if we were to move to Nola.” – Crystal

I knew when I was searching for the most unique New Orleans AirBNB, that it would just have to be a haunted one – and I found it! This super popular room on the third floor of the stately Parks-Bowman Mansion is known to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl of the 1800’s. It is equipped with a private ensuite bathroom, mini fridge and a balcony with great city views. Guests will enjoy access to a range of rooms in the mansion, and to its outdoor pool and gardens. The Garden District is one of NOLA’s most historic neighborhoods, dotted with elegant mansions. The famous Lafayette Cemetery is right around the corner, as is buzzing Magazine Street. Such a unique experience you can’t miss out on!  

Guest review: “My boyfriend Brad and I had a fantastic time staying with Adrienne and her husband. The actual house is an art piece in itself, and was as entertaining to experience as the city itself. Our room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the hospitality far surpassed all my expectations. The district Adrienne lives in is stunning, and the location made it easy to get ourselves everywhere we needed. We will certainly be back if we’re ever in The Big Easy again!” – Elesha

It has huge, regal interiors, a pool, a self-contained pool house, an outdoor patio, heating and cooling throughout – and so much more! If you can drag yourself away from this updated 1860’s abode, you’ll find the vibrant hub of Magazine Street just steps away, as well as New Orleans streetcar services.

Bottled water, sparkling water, coffee hot chocolate, umbrellas, bikes for us to use which we did and loved it! All I can say is thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us! If you get a chance, I would highly recommend staying here. We were able to park right in front of the house and we either took an Uber if we didn’t want to drive or we rode the bikes provided. Location is excellent, lots of things to do within walking distance or a short bike ride to city park or even a short drive to the French Quarter! We can’t wait for our next stay here, thank you both again! Cheers.” – Mike & Jennifer

The French Quarter is the heart and soul of Downtown New Orleans, and is the area of the city that visitors primarily flock to the city’s major attractions. This AirBNB Plus is the best French Quarter AirBNB in New Orleans – in my humble opinion of course!

World famous Bourbon Street is just around the corner, and it goes without saying that from here, a smorgasbord of dining, drinking, partying and shopping opportunities await you! 

Guest review: “We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this AirBnB! It is the *perfect* location – within walking distance to Bourbon Street and the surrounding area while being far enough away so as not to be bothered by the late night parties. The interior is beautiful with comfortable beds and elegant design. We had a water pressure issue with the shower when we first arrived but Barrett responded to our text immediately and had a plumber come out to take care of it right away! I would recommend this listing to anyone looking to stay in the heart of the French Quarter!” – Andrea

New Orleans is one of those cities that just grabs you and doesn’t let go. There’s something so intoxicating and enchanting about NOLA, it truly has a vibe that is completely unique. The New Orleans AirBNB offerings are vast and as unique as the city. However, I will advise that if you are visiting the city during the hot and humid summer months, definitely spring for a stay with air conditioning, and one that is close to the main tourist hotspots. Mmmmm…late night cocktails and jazz on Bourbon Street…..

Regardless of when you go, you’re guaranteed a world class experience in New Orleans, and one you’ll remember forever.
