I am a transplanted West Coast-er, been in New Orleans 18 years. I am a real estate appraiser by trade, and do historical renovations as an avocation. I love bringing these gems back from the edge of destruction and putting them back into commerce, so people can live in and enjoy them. This was one of my first efforts, and it came out great! I am so proud of it; it is an extremely peaceful place to stay, right across from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter.
