PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PROPERTY IS NEVER EVER LISTED ON CRAIGSLIST. IF YOU SEE THIS PROPERTY ON CRAIGSLIST, IT IS A SCAM

The Grand Jazz Fest Cottage is a single home Creole Cottage built in 1901. The cottage has been constantly maintained since that time having had only 3 owners. We just completed a major renovation and re-landscaped in early 2013.

You can jump on your bikes and cruise to City Park to enjoy all that it has to offer or even ride to the French Quarter or Garden District.

The Living Room's flooring is gorgeous antique wide-plank heart pine and the walls are wainscot complete with chair rail molding. There are 12 foot ceilings draped in full length fleur de lis embroidered drapery. The sofa opens into a queen size sofa bed. The television is a 43inch plasma with cable channels. Enjoy the Bose radio/cd player during your stay. The accent cabinet below the television stores cds and books for your use.

The kitchen's floors are slate tiles and the cabinets are custom built. The counters are granite with a deep stainless steel sink. The kitchen is fully stocked and includes a full size stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, ice maker with dispenser on the door. Microwave, Range, Oven, Dishwasher, Coffee Pot, Food Processor, Toaster, Magnalite Pots and Pans, Dishes, Glassware, Bar Glasses, Utensils, Serving Dishes, and all that you will need to prepare and enjoy meals at home. A propane gas grill is available for your use in the back yard. And the two local grocery stores and wine store around the corner can provide all of your needs.

The bathroom has a tub with shower. Body Wash, Shampoo, and Conditioner are provided as well as tissue and toilet tissue. High quality bath and hand towels, face cloths, and floor mats are included.

A full size washer and dryer is provided along with clothes detergent and fabric softener for your use.

The bedrooms is a beautiful, romantic, and relaxing retreat. The wood floors are beautiful and it is wainscot in bead board painted creamy shades of white. The four poster King-Size Iron Bed is plush and complete with quality linens. There are two large storage closets in the bedroom, a vanity, and a desk. Relax and watch television on a lazy morning before strolling down to the coffee house for breakfast.

The backyard has just been landscaped and is a nice place to relax and enjoy the morning sun and shade in the afternoon. It is a beautiful place to relax and grill after a long day.

The cottage is a sweet, romantic retreat in the middle of the most charming city in the country.

We hope you enjoy our cottage and our home town as much as we do. When you love New Orleans, it loves you back and makes you feel like you are home.

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.

Why Charlie and Anne Singer chose Downtown

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.

Charming home and caring hosts in a wonderful Bayou St. John neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Where do we begin?...the cottage is lovely, the neighborhood charming, the hosts terrific!

The kitchen is fully equipped. It's modern, but not cold. There's even a cast iron skillet! It's a large kitchen with plenty of counter space. The furniture throughout the house is all very comfy. We were amazed by the quality of everything in the home and by how much was provided for us. The roses in the front of the house were in full bloom when we were there and they had such a nice scent. (btw - When looking at the picture of the cottage, the door on the right is for decoration only. This is not a duplex, it's the whole cottage.)

The bathtub is wonderful. It's large and deep with a wide ledge (for your wine glass!)

The a/c worked great.

We were absolutely delighted with the neighborhood. We didn't have a car, and didn't miss it at all. There is so much in walking or biking distance. There are two markets about two blocks away. We walked to several restaurants; some more touristy, some full of local flavor. A trolley stop, City Park, and NOMA (the art museum) are about 1/2 mile away. The French Quarter is a little over 2 miles away.

Charlie and Anne were lovely to deal with; very accommodating. We got a feel for the kind of people they must be when we met neighbors during a block yard/garage sale and they talked about how much they liked them and how sorry they were when Anne and Charlie moved back into their home when the repairs after Katrina were completed. The neighbors still miss them. We're so very glad the Singers decided to keep the cottage!

We can't imagine staying anywhere else in NOLA--this place suited us perfectly!!

a great week in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time in new Orleans. The Singers cottage was a fantastic locale to see and hear the sights and sounds of New Orleans. Situated in a great neighborhood with grocery stores and awesome restaurants, and within walking distance of City Park and the trolley to the French Quarter. We loved grillin' and chillin' in the back yard. Terry and Sue Racine

Wonderful and convenient place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this particular vrbo. It is conveniently located for us. (There is a small neighborhood grocery store within walking distance.) It is very clean, well-maintained, and just the right size. This was our 4th vrbo to rent in NOLA, and this one was by far our favorite.

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
