The fact that rock-and-roller Lenny Kravitz used to own this Creole cottage (he sold it two years ago for $655,000) isn't even the most flashy bit of info concerning the French Quarter rental. It's the eye-popping $12,000 per month price tag for the one-bedroom, two-bath home that steals the show. The Dauphine Street digs has vaulted ceilings, ebony wood floors, exposed brick, and custom wallpaper by the pretty outrageous Flavor Paper firm, which started in New Orleans. The kitchen is "discreetly built into an 18 foot marble bar," the bathroom is "spa-like" (of course), and there's a nice private back patio. So, what kind of perkage does one get after signing a $12K rent check? Per the listing, a 2,000-square-foot, fully furnished home with a security system, housekeeping services, Apple TV, and paid utilities and internet.
