Vacation Rental: Sunny Bywater Apartment with Wrap-Around Balcony in New Orleans, Louisiana
Sleeps: Up to 3 guests
Price: Starting at $80 per night
Why We Wanna Cook Here: It’s about a million times more charming than our current kitchen. It’s also in the Bywater (where the cool kids live).

This second-floor apartment is 1,300 square feet, has giant floor-to-ceiling windows with lots of light, and a wrap-around balcony with outdoor seating.

Who Should Go (and When)

If you love cats, this place is for you. Four-year-old felines Mojave and Thunderbird live here and will require some attention (feeding, petting, and possible litter box cleaning). If you can handle their cuteness, you’ll also love this charming apartment any time of year.

What We’d Cook Here

It’s New Orleans! And it’s a giant, fully functioning kitchen! Cook your heart out making some regional classics.

Another Thing We Love

Dark cabinets can be risky, but we love how this space pulls them off. The ceilings are high (15 feet!) and the light is bright, which helps counteract the darkness of the cabinets. The butcher-block counters and the nearby exposed brick add warm-yet-industrial touches.

What to Instagram

Pretend like Mojave and Thunderbird are your own and post some cuddles with them. Worried your own cat will get jealous? Play it safe and go with some pics of the funky wallpapers or the view from the balcony.

When we travel we believe in staying in real homes as much as we can; to really taste a place means cooking local food in a local’s kitchen. We Wanna Cook Here is our series devoted to our favorite vacation rentals, each with a kitchen worth savoring.
