About Charlie and Anne Singer

My wife and I purchased the cottage in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina flooded our home with 11.9 feet of water. After the Hurricane we moved 3 times in a little over a year. At that time we had not started rebuilding our home in Lakeview and decided that we needed a home to call our own knowing that the rebuilding would be long and tedious due to the lack of available contractors. Anne always dreamed of owning a Creole Cottage and even visualized this Cottage in her dreams. She road the neighborhood for weeks on end looking for the Cottage and one lucky day, there it was. She called me at work so excited she could hard contain herself and the rest is history. We were fortunate enough to purchase the Cottage and moved in in early 2006. We enjoyed living in the neighborhood for over two years until moving back home in 2008. We had a lovely friend in graduate school who treasured the Cottage live there until she completed her Ph.D. and relocated. So now we are ready to share this jewel of Esplanade Ridge with visitors from all over the world.

Charlie and Anne Singer purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Charlie and Anne Singer chose Bayou St John

I spent the first 24 years of my life in this neighborhood until my wife and I married. We both dreamed of owning a cottage in this neighborhood and, for me, it was like coming home. This neighborhood and cottage is something you have to experience. It is a slice of heaven and we hope that you feel the same way about our Cottage and the neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

Our Creole Cottage is centrally located just steps off Historic Esplanade Avenue. You can quickly get to any of the many attractions the City of New Orleans has to offer with a quick walk, trolly, bus, or taxi ride within minutes. Enjoy walking, biking or just people watching from our home. Or, leisurely take in all of the activities in our area ... people are walking and chatting, eating and enjoying beverages in the many outside cafes and pubs. People are running, relaxing in the park. Enjoy watching the bike tours riding by our home viewing all of the Historic architecture in our neighborhood. The cottage was completely renovated in early 2013. It is a single dwelling with keyless entry specific to each guest. Paper products, kitchen staples, bath products, linens, barbecue pit and tools. We aim to provide all of the comforts you expect from a luxury hotel with the benefit of a well appointed kitchen. Visitor satisfaction is important to us. We live very close to the Cottage and will be available to you. We will be happy to provide you with recommendations, directions, advice on the best way to enjoy our city. We are a telephone call away if you need us. Otherwise, enjoy your privacy and love our City.

Creole cottage

  • 5 of 5

Anne and Charlie have thought of every detail to make your stay feel like a home.Loved walking the neighborhood enjoying the park,cemeteries and restaurants . We followed the advice of other's recommendations and ate at Lola's which was a stupendous meal.This restaurant fills up quickly-get their early. Had a few questions and Anne and Charlie were always available and were helpful and kind. This was our first visit to New Orleans and it is a one-of-a-kind city full of character . We know where we will stay if we are ever blessed enough to return.

Creole cottage splendour

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to discover the most fantastic location for JazzFest 2015. The cottage has everything one could want and need for a memorable and comfortable visit to New Orleans. Location location, excellent neighbours, every amenity all wrapped up and surrounded by roses., gardenias and jasmine. Indoors the layout is perfect for 4 people should you need a pullout couch it is private and separate from the bedroom. The huge kingsize bed is very comfortable with a memory foam topper and excellent bedding and linens. The bedroom is huge and has a flat screen TV; lots of closet space and a grand desk if you want to do some work.

The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped with all necessary items: pots, pans, silverware etc. all in good taste. The fridge and dishwasher are quiet and in good order as are the washer and dryer in the bathroom. oh not to forget the great back yard and bikes which we used to get everywhere! Highly recommended for seeing Nola in style:)

Anne and Charlie really have done a beautiful job on this little cottage. We love it and look forward to coming back for many years. Thank you both!! You are the best!

Thank you Marylou, Brent and John

Great place in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage! There is everything you need within a short walk. Coffee, pastries, groceries, wine, beer, spirits, and several good restaurants are an easy walk of a few blocks. The cottage was clean and well stocked. The yard is a nice touch with seating for four, and the bicycles are an extra bonus. The French Quarter is a short drive away, but we don't come for that anymore anyway! There is no doubt, we'll be back. Thanks Charlie and Anne!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband went to New Orleans for our honeymoon and stayed at this cottage. This cottage is unbelievably beautiful, clean, comfy, clean, etc! The bed is so comfortable! Everything was provided for us. We did not want to leave! Lol. We will definitely be coming back and staying here. I miss is already! We used the bikes to go to the French quarter all the time. It's not far at all (if you enjoy the nice kinda long bike rides) I recommend this place!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for myself and my two sisters. Well equipped, quiet neighbourhood. Very convenient location. Nice restaurants near by and a short cab ride to the French Quarter. So much better than staying in a hotel room. Every thing you need is here.

Located in the Heart of New Orleans, our Cottage is centrally located and just steps off Historic Esplanade Avenue. Our neighborhood is safe and within walking distance of the New Orleans Museum of Art in City Park, the Fairgrounds (Jazz Fest and horse racing), and 2 miles from the French Quarter. The neighborhood is a colorful gem and one of the most desirable areas of New Orleans.

We enjoy strolling to dinner or to have cocktails at Cafe Degas, Lola's, Nonna Mia, Liuzza's By the Track, or Santa Fe. You'll notice lots of locals enjoying our Alcee Fortier neighborhood park relaxing and enjoying the weather or maybe playing checkers! Around the corner you will find everything you need - all locally owned grocery stores, a wine store, spa, book store, and coffee shops.

From our cottage, there is no need to rent a car to explore New Orleans. Walk less then one block to catch the Esplanade Avenue/French Quarter bus into the French Quarter or enjoy the 5-block watch down Esplanade Avenue to City Park to catch the streetcar.

Getting around New Orleans by streetcar is a great way to see the city. Walk from the cottage to catch the street car in front of the majestic New Orleans Museum of Art. Streetcars in New Orleans offer and can be paid with exact change when you board. 1, 3, and 31-day unlimited ride Jazzy Passes are also available. The streetcar symbolizes the charm and romance of the City of New Orleans. This streetcar will take you along the scenic route to the CBD and the French Quarter/Aquarium of the Americas.You can then connect to streetcar lines to Uptown New Orleans, Tulane University and the Audubon Zoo. Or transfer to the streetcar that runs along the Mississippi River through the French Quarter. See the Quarter, the St. Louis Cathedral, Cafe du Monde, Jackson Square, and the French Market.

One of the most beautiful and enjoyable areas of New Orleans is City Park. Devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the 1300 Acre New Orleans City Park has been completely restored and expanded. City Park attractions: The New Orleans Museum of Art, Botanical Garden, Sculpture Garden, Boat and Bike Rentals, Tennis Center, Fishing, Picnic Shelters and very soon Miniature Golf! You can even enjoy Beignets and Cafe au Lait at Morning Call in the Park.

Visit their website for details.

Keep your walking shoes on and visit the Audubon Nature Institute's Audubon Zoo (my grandsons love the Cool Zoo sprinklers and water features), Aquarium of the Americas, Insectarium, IMAX Theatre, and the Audubon Park and Golf Course. More info at www.auduboninstitute.org.

Don't miss a visit to The National World War II Museum. The museum presents the American experience during the WWII era with moving personal stories, historic artifacts and powerful interactive displays. Visitors to the museum are encouraged to allocate roughly 2½ to 3 hours to tour the museum. An award-winning 4-D film, Beyond All Boundaries, is an overview of the war on every front. A variety of other multimedia displays are part of the museum's exhibits, notably dozens of video oral histories conducted with veterans by museum staff. The museum includes two restaurants, the American Sector and the Soda Shop, both operated by noted chef John Besh. www.nationalww2museum.org

And then there is....The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival! Imagine leisurely walking two blocks to the entrance to Jazz Fest! No hassles with traffic, parking...pure heaven. After an exciting day at the Fest, walk over to Liuzza's By The Track to continue partying or to one of the restaurants to carry on with the incredible food and beverages. Nothing beats this....HEAVENLY
