Stay in the home of B. Sammy Singleton, narrator of the hit local novel The Coffee Shop Chronicles of New Orleans!

"As I wait for Catfish to relock the gate I peer back into what appears to be an enormous compound, down a brick carriageway overhung with gas lamps, its distant end broadening into a glowing rectangle
of courtyard shaded by a procession of red-blossomed crape myrtles brushing the side of another house behind the one whose threshold I
thought wed just crossed. Rather than entering that front house, however, were still outside, or at least semi-outside, in one of those uniquely in-between spaces peculiar to New Orleans, where the closing of a shutter or the unfurling of a blind can take one in a heartbeat from outside to in, such that the two spaces remain at all times inextricably mingled, the people occupying them lolling quite happily somewhere in the middle." --Excerpt from Chapter 9, Creole Heart

Praise for the Book: I like to describe it as Armistead Maupin (Tales of the City) meets David Sedaris
(Me Talk Pretty One Day et al) at A Confederacy of Dunces. LOL. Of course this David has his own style, his own issues, his own viewpoints. But if you're wondering if you'll laugh -- yes, you will! You may be rendered speechless and appalled at other times in the book, but you will most definitely enjoy David's lively humor and wit. If you already love New Orleans or want to get to know her better, you will enjoy the book even more so. -- Raymond Ruiz, New Orleans, LA

River House New Orleans
Luxury Vacation Rentals


Located on a quiet tree-lined street by the French Quarter, this 1850s Creole-style plantation home offers accommodations on par with those found in luxury boutique hotels, but in the practical and more personal setting of an ideally situated private residence. Tastefully appointed with fine furnishings and accessories, period and retro antiques and artwork, and architectural artifacts reflecting New Orleans' culture, each of its three floors comprises a large, independent vacation suite that may be engaged separately or in combination with the other apartments. Surrounding the River House compound are tropical gardens lush with night-blooming jasmine, wisteria, and antique roses, with a heated pool and sundeck at the rear of the property, while an expansive front balcony with original cast iron offers spectacular sunset and cityscape views.
