Located just three short blocks from the French Quarter on Pauger Street, this Creole cottage, built in 1829 has a total of four SPACIOUS rooms. A feature of Creole cottages is that there are NO HALLWAYS, and all rooms are connected. Street parking is available but we cannot always guarantee it.

The first room features a queen-size sofa sleeper (with freshly ironed linens) which provides extra sleeping space. The original 189 year old long leaf pine floors have been refinished to add to the beauty of the place. There are 2 reading/conversation areas, and a nice fluffy shaggy rug. AC/Heating unit will keep the room cozy all year round.

The second room is the large bedroom with a TALL king-size bed (ironed sheets and pillow cases), armoire, bedside tables, cable TV, bedside rugs and the same beautiful flooring. PLEASE NOTE: Please help us maintain our lower prices. No color hairspray, fresh dye, or makeup is allowed on the bed - it stains the sheets and covers. Thank you.

The third room has a round dining table/chairs, an iMAC (with WI-FI), AC unit, and a small reading nook.

NOTE: NO GUESTS ARE ALLOWED TO STAY OVERNIGHT WITHOUT PAYMENT.

The kitchen is a bright green color to "wake you up" in the morning. Small appliances (toaster/oven, microwave and coffeemaker) are furnished along with coffee and tea.

We LOVE our guests. We sit down and give instructions to the area (along with maps), suggest restaurants and things to do, offer tour information along with brochures, and do our best to make you feel AT HOME.

Beautiful home, Gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 3 friends in Ron & Mark's beautiful place. It was perfect! Location was unbeatable, the home had everything you could want or need while travelling, and Ron & Mark were wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to help us out, make recommendations, and make sure we were having a great time. Ron even baked us cookies and gave us little memento gifts!

I would definitely recommend staying at this rental. It is everything you want and more.

Thank you both for the hospitality!

A perfect place to stay in the Big Easy!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful rental in Marigny! Mark & Ron’s place made for a memorable first trip to the Big Easy, I almost wish I could of stayed in the rental more but being that we were on a short trip over the weekend we had to be up early and get on the move. My most important requirement for any rental is cleanliness followed by comfort and this rental is perfect for both. Cold AC’s (multiple throughout the house) and comfortable sofas and a great king size bed! Mark & Ron the homeowners are great, unfortunately I never met Ron but I met his kind partner Mark who greeted us early in the morning upon our arrival and gave us a great run down of the property and also a very thoughtful farewell gift. I rented this property for me and my girlfriend so with that being said it went above and beyond our expectations for 2 people. Walking distance to Bourbon Street, Frenchman Street and the French quarter or a $7/$8 Uber or Lyft definitely felt safe walking but opted for a car ride when it was too warm. Many local attractions too. We’ll definitely be looking to stay here again on our next trip.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Ron was the best host! He gave us the history of the home, explained the layout of the city, and gave us great suggestions! The location was perfect and was walking distance to most areas for us. If I ever visit New Orleans again, I will definitely book this home again and will suggest it to anyone else traveling here.

PS. Comfiest bed ever!

Outstanding - Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our visit started with a warm welcome from Mark. He gave us great info on local places to eat and where to find music. The apartment is beautiful and meticulously well kept. We were close enough to the action of the French Quarter but far enough to stay out of the crazy.......if you've been to the French Quarter you know what I mean. We had coffee each morning on the back patio which was so relaxing.

I can't say enough good things about the Ron and Mark........two of the kindest people I've ever met. The property is even better than the pictures. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. This is truly a home away from home and you do feel like a local. We will be back:)

P.S. The bed is AMAZING........the best of all the VRBO's I've stayed at!

Great location, house, & host!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing and has a great New Orleans charm. Ron met us when we arrived and gave great suggestions of places to eat and maps of the area, super helpful! The house is located close enough to everything to make walking easy and far enough away that it was peaceful and quiet. We would definitely stay here again!

Everything you could possibly want

  • 5 of 5

My partner said he would give this place six stars if he could. The house is quintessential New Orleans with a lot of history, beautiful decor, and a lush garden in the back complete with strings of lights and a hot tub(!). The hosts thought of everything. We were so comfortable here. One thing that stands out beyond the beautiful surroundings, is the modern bathroom. A lot of places in New Orleans brag about having claw foot bathtubs. Have you ever tried taking a shower in one of those? It's not fun. This place has a big modern shower with reliable hot water and great water pressure. The robes our hosts provided were so comfy, and the air conditioning was much appreciated. Details like these really make a difference. In addition, our hosts are the nicest people you could meet - incredibly kind, responsive, and accommodating. Thanks for making our trip so special!
