Overview

About the property

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

This bright little cottage is a bit of the Caribbean 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! In our opinion, the city’s coolest courtyard is Feelings Cafe D’aunoy--just 3 blocks toward the river.

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 security gate with coded entry, walk down the lighted drive to find your cottage and 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) with a bike tour enterprise located just across the street! Buses are found on St Claude and cabs or Uber are a call or app away.

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.

Hidden Gem in close proximity

  • 5 of 5

OMG this place is even more beautiful and charming than the pictures. The lovely notes from owners are so cute. This place is right outside of the French Quarters but definitely within walking distance of all you could want in the area. Bourbon St. is only a 18 minute walk away. Was there for Mardi Gras and my friend's birthday celebration and had a BLAST! Will definitely be back! I've been to New Orleans several times and this time I felt like a local. Got to live with the locals, experience neat local eateries within a 5-10 min walk from this location. Everyone was so welcoming and nice.

Secluded yet Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Caribbean Cottage! It was surprisingly spacious and charming with a very comfy bed. Its tucked away behind the street-facing homes with an uncommonly large and lovely (court)yard shared with the amazing hosts (only occasionally). This degree of privacy and seclusion offered this close to all the bars and restaurants is very hard to match. Marna and Stephanie (and their adorable pups) are fantastic hosts - super friendly and helpful with advice and recommendations - striking the perfect balance of friendly availability and respecting our privacy. Will definitely return!

Great cottage in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this little cottage. Lots of amenities and a great location made it a wonderful time.

Marna and Stephanie are great hosts and were available for any question we had. The Marigny neighborhood is great a great location - close to Frenchman St for good music and food and the French Quarter. Between the location of this rental, local bars and restaurants, and the friendly people, we had a great trip to our first Mardi Gras and we'll be back!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful first visit to New Orleans, and a big reason is because we stayed here. We had everything we needed, plus we were within walking distance of many good restaurants and things we wanted to do. The cottage was larger than we expected, very clean, and with quality sheets and towels. Hosts M & S are fun and enjoyable to chat with.

Owner's Response: I just discovered that I haven't responded your lovely review. Oh dear! You were both such great guests--it's always good when you mention our lucky proximity to all the fun stuff around the Cottage. And Stephanie will love that you appreciated the quality of the linens and such. She takes such good care of the space and is SO particular about the bedding and bath supplies. (I often want to sleep an night or two in that bed!) Thank you.

Secluded and calm

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Marigny Caribbean Cottage. It is a comfortable, clean, secluded space that is huge! It was a great location to see the city, even if you are walking (like we did most of the time). Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review, Michael. Crazy I didn't bump into you--I mean we are from the same city... I appreciate that you mentioned how big the Cottage is--the VRBO photos don't really show that. Hope you two can come again and stay longer next time!
