About Eshyah Selig

I am a real-estate appraiser by profession, and rehab historical properties for fun. This was one of my earliest efforts, and it is a gem. When I bought this property, there were no foundations in any of the walls, no mechanical systems, nothing but a great location and the shells of 3 small, historically significant buildings. We lifted up the buildings, poured foundations, lowered the buildings and rebuilt them from the frames out, using the most appropriate materials that we could find. It was a labor of love.

I am a trasplant from California, and JazzFest, 2014 will mark 20 years in NOLA. I came for the music, attending the Fest for several years in a row, and then decided that hey! these folks do this all year 'round; they just invite the rest of the world for JF. I became aware of WWOZ, the best radio station in the universe, Gambit and Offbeat. This place is wired for fun. I love it and will never leave, at least not for good (I like to travel). I have rehabbed 5 historical properties, and now using this one to partially finance my retirement. Now I'm running a dog-training program at St. Gabriel, the only women's prison in Louisiana, teaching inmates to train rescued shelter dogs for wounded-warriors with PTSD.

Ain't life great?

Eshyah Selig purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Eshyah Selig chose Downtown

This property is as New Orleans as it gets. Why come to New Orleans to stay in a hotel that could be in Cleveland (no offense to Cleveland) or any high rise hotel in the country? Why not stay in a piece of New Orleans history? Start your visit as soon as you check into the Mardi Gras Cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a beautiful, peaceful, unique property in walking distance to all the excitement and fun in the French Quarter. After a day of sight-seeing and music and fun and inbibing all that NOLA has to offer, come home to a private, serene place where you can recharge your batteries before venturing out again, while still soaking up the ambience of New Orleans. Save money by using the full kitchen for some meals, and put your restaurant leftovers in the fridge for future reference. Even use the free laundry so you don't have to go home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes! Pet friendly.

This is a great place to stay in NOLA. Bed was very comfortable and it was bigger than I thought from the pictures on the site. Would stay here again for sure.

Purple cottage

  • 4 of 5

The purple cottage was clean and comfortable with everything you need and so much nicer than being in a hotel. Location was perfect to walk to the French quarter and all around.

Thanks for the great place!

Great location with New Orleans Charm

  • 5 of 5

The Marci Gras Cotages are located within walking distance to all the French Wuarter has to offer as well as to Frenchmen St where music plays all night. We stayed in unit A which was spacious and affordable and had all the basics we needed. We were safe with locked gates and it was quiet and comfortablr for sleeping and relaxing. We walked to and from Jazz Fest each day and enjoyed the local flavor of the community. We will definitely stay here again.

Another Awesome stay at the Cottages!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my fifth time staying at the cottages. And it never dissapoints. Came in town for my first Red Dress Run. It was awesome. The cottages are perfectly located to everythng. Once again we did not use the vehicle the whole time. On street parking right in front of the unit is perfect for loading and unloading the car. Ever since disovering the cottages two years ago, I have never stayed in a hotel or anywhere else in New Orleans. It don't get any better. And Eshyah makes it all so easy. Great communication before and after arrival. Look forward to seeing you again soon Eshyah.

nice cottage close to the french quarter

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was comfortable and well appointed with the basics, including the owners recommendations. We walked all over from there. We stayed with our dog and it was nice that there is a field across the street.
