Overview

About the property

Larger than it looks. Brimming with charisma & walking distance to all the fun!

This bright space is 800 s.f. of the Caribbean charm hidden away in the heart of the Marigny--which puts it pretty much close to everything. The bustling, up-and-coming St Claude Avenue is one and a half blocks away. The Avenue is alive with funky dive bars, art galleries, junk and thrift shops, and even theatres. Coffee shops are all around! And eateries of all kinds seem to pop up over night.

The entire rest of the Crescent City is easily at hand. We are 10 walkable blocks from the French Quarter.

Mardi Gras? The Season begins just 3 blocks from here with the irreverent Krewe de Vieux and ends in the same spot with the Ste. Anne Walking Parade--where EVERYONE is in the Krewe and the bar is set sky high for costuming!

Jazz Fest? French Quarter Fest? Chaz Fest? Oyster Fest? VooDoo Fest? It seems that we have parades, 2nd lines and festivals one after the other in close formation. Or maybe you’re here for a convention. There are oodles of them here every year. The CBD is just minutes away by cab or Uber.

Restaurants abound. From funky/trendy to 4 star: running the gamut from run-down-your-arm juicy poboys, thick gumbos and firey crawfish boils to the finest dining at Commanders and Bayona: from Baccanal at the far-end-elbow of the Bywater to Maurapas or The Three Muses on Frenchman Street. But even in this lush landscape, it’s sometimes just right to eat at “home”. You’ll have a spacious, fully equipped kitchen here to rustle up a home-made meal. With the Food Co-op just a block away, you can conveniently “make groceries” for whatever inspires you.

We’ll have information on all the above including plantations and swamp tours and everything in between available when you arrive.

ABOUT THE SPACE:

You’ll just enter through the green security gate with coded entry, walk down the lighted drive to find your "home-away-from-home" with a deck in the back corner of our good-sized back yard. The entire colorful house is yours. With 800 cozy square feet, you’ll have one bedroom and one bath with a large kitchen/eating area, living room, front porch plus a deck for morning coffee or that last cocktail before you call it a day. This out-of-sight hideaway can be just the reprieve you need from the abundant action of the Crescent City.

Parking is on the street and rarely an issue. If you don’t feel like walking (which is a great choice), bicycles can be rented in several places nearby (a great way to get around the city). Buses are found on St Claude and

Lyft or Uber are only an app away. We are thrilled that the new North Rampart street car line is only 5 blocks away and it will get you all over town for a song.

The large back yard is shared with us. We live on site in the historic front house. We have a workshop across the space from you and we have two dogs who will keep us company. They do not come into the cottage and they are never outside without us. Chances are that you will meet them! If you’re not a “dog person” another spot would probably be a better fit for you. The entire outside area is well kept and, depending on the time of year, filled with foliage and greenery.

A laundry shed is located behind our house and we are happy to share it with you.

Smoking on the deck and the covered patio is acceptable.

YOUR HOSTS:

Your hosts are two sisters. Stephanie has an extensive and creative background in antiques and furniture refinishing while Marna has been busy for years rehabbing as much of the historic architecture in New Orleans as she can manage. While we’ll give you your space and privacy, we ARE on hand with hopefully helpful information--or help--if needed.

Three wonderful weeks!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 wonderful weeks staying here. The unit is very well equipped and spacious with a very comfortable bed. It is in a quiet residential location yet close enough to walk easily to Frenchmen St and, a bit further, to the French Quarter. The neighbourhood nearby is great. We especially liked The Franklin Restaurant and the Faubourg wine shop.

We enjoyed sitting outside for breakfast every morning. Marna and Stephanie are delightful company and the dogs, Beaux and Liza, are very friendly. We felt that we were leaving good friends when the sad time came to say goodbye. Thanks, Marna and Stephanie, for making our stay so enjoyable and we hope to return very soon.

You can be sure that we'll be looking forward to your return!

NOLA's Best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a clean quiet place to stay that offers everything you need, yet its close to the NOLA landmarks, then this is the place. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage is larger than the pictures show. I was there with my 17 year old granddaughter and felt very safe in the neighborhood. I would definitely go back. The 'Who's Dat' cafe is just around the corner for breakfast or lunch and shouldn't be missed. Eat like a local at 'Melba's' nearby and get their famous poor boys. Not only is it good but you'll also be supporting the local charity as well as the families of the employees. Give Beau Diddly (owner's dog) a pat on the head from me if your lucky enough to meet him on your trip. Don't hesitate - this is the place to stay!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review! Thank you so much. I know you came to create some memories with your granddaughter....and it sounds like you did. So happy that the neighborhood was everything you wanted. Even Beau wants to see you back!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Hosts were awesome! A lot of little touches that made our stay easy and comfortable. Close enough to the NOLA action to Uber or use trolley/bus. Yet just far enough away from the madness to relax and recoup for the next day's adventures.

Owner's Response: Thank you April.....those are the great things about the Cottage that really matter for folks looking for both a good location AND the peace and quiet to re-coup after all the busy-ness that New Orleans offers. Hope you'll consider the Cottage when you come this way again!

a great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The cottage has everything you would need and is in a super peaceful environment, plus comes with 2 very sweet and well behaved canines. :) The area is safe if you are wondering or factoring that in to where you stay. Public transportation is close by and super easy to navigate, and the walk to the French Quarter is easy- (even for a short, plump person! haha) Too much to see and do in one week!! Pick your top 3 and then add on an activity/site. The World War II museum is very informative, but if you like to read each marker as you see the exhibit then I would allow a whole day- a lot to see there, but so worth it.

Owner's Response: Hey.....thanks for the great words!! You covered the high points so well. We love that the Street Car now comes so close to us--and thus connects you well all around town. Glad you mentioned the WWII museum--it is SO amazing. And, always, it's good to hear folks comment on how peaceful the Cottage is. We as SO lucky in our location. Of course--come back ANYTIME.
