About Matilde Alberny
Greetings! We are Matilde and Gustavo, both visual artists. We came in 1999 to NewOrleans for an exhibit of Gustavo and barely few hours later fell irrevocably in love with the city. Gustavo is a well-known artist and regularly shows abroad and other cities of the United States. His work (and mine) are permanently on display at Kezic Gallery in the FrenchQuarter. You might want to organize a visit to Gustavo’s art studio in the Bywater. We moved to New Orleans where we found a perfect mélange of village and city life with great entertainment. We are foodies, finding wonderful dining experiences in New Orleans is easy and are plentiful. We stroll while sipping our drinks (it’s “legal” here) and enjoy our architectural treasures in the afternoon, meet friends or chase fabulous music at the many venues and festivals around the city. And most of it, if not all can be done walking! We are owners and managers of our property. We like to personally greet our visitors if possible. We are attentive to all of our guests needs and inquiries but understand that we are not part of the planned vacation. We are available if needed.
Matilde Alberny purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Matilde Alberny chose Lower Garden District
In the Lower Garden District we found the perfect mélange of village, rural laissez faire and city life and entertainment. A walk in the afternoon by Magazine Street or hearing the fountain of the Coliseum Square at night is enough to fall in love over and over again. We are in the middle of the city, in our own little gorgeous oasis

Cozy studio in a great location!
Great retreat for us during a fun-packed wedding weekend in the Garden District. Well-stocked and comfortable. Great bed/sheets! Highlight is the large enclosed patio space. Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet our host, Matilde, but she was very welcoming and helpful via text!
Great location, amazing garden
The location was just perfect, the host amazing and very gracious. the studio apartment had everything we needed. We walked to all of the destinations and discovered so many thing along our way.
Gorgeous, hidden gem, perfection 👌🏻
There could not be a more perfect location in all of NOLA than this little space 😍 The owners are quite possibly the sweetest, most-generous & kind people we’ve ever met. The guest house was clean, convenient & decorated with fabulous art...we found ourselves wanting to chill in our room & the courtyard as much as possible. One block away from the cutest eclectic shops, coffee shops & restaurants...this is truly a hidden gem in the city! Matilde & her husband were just amazing & even leant me their last gate key when I left mine at a friend’s house...just such sweet people ❤️Thank you both so much !
Thank you!!! Loved having you here.
Wonderful experience, gracious hosts, perfect location.
This accommodation provided the perfect place in which to make forays into whichever direction we desired into New Orleans. Using public transit kept things simple for us and this property afforded us the ideal location.
Our abode was clean, inspiring, and fully adequate for our four days.
Our gracious hosts completed the “picture-perfect” experience.
Clean and comfortable. Close enough to everything we wanted to see and in a safe enough neighborhood to walk everywhere. Wouldn’t change a thing!
Great Place to Stay!
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was well appointed with coffee (with all the fixings), laundry detergent, folding lawn chairs and even bus schedules. We rarely moved our car from the free on-street parking, since the bus was conveniently located right outside our door.
We would definitely stay here again!
This exquisitely elegant and comfortable cottage is nestled in a beautifully landscaped courtyard with fruit trees, scented trees, and flowers and sculptures by local metal artists. Have your morning coffee seated in one of the several sitting and leisure areas throughout, while enjoying this extraordinaire courtyard or lay in the hammock in the lazy afternoon, under the palm tree before heading back to the active city.
At the heart of New Orleans lies this gated home, a refuge nestled in the vibrant Lower Garden District. Located across from the magnificent Coliseum Square Park and intimately connected to everything... the mansions and gardens of the Lower and Garden District, the Arts and Warehouse District with all the museums, art galleries and finest restaurants, the adorned tree-lined boulevard of St. Charles and it's famous Streetcar.
Shopping at Magazine Streets, antique shops, art galleries, bespoke clothiers, artisan jewelers, potters, coffee shops and fine eateries is just blocks away.
Second Line Studios is at walking distance.
The French Quarter and shopping of Royal, Riverwalk and Canal Place, the Convention Center and the Port of New Orleans are within a mile, all walk-able.
