About Rita Rans

I've lived in New Orleans for 15 years and love my new hometown! I moved here from Indiana where I ran a vintage clothing store, used record shop and then worked in a battered women's shelter.

Rita Rans purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Rita Rans chose Faubourg Marigny

I chose to live in this area because of the wonderful mix of neighbors and the closeness to the Quarter where I can walk to Mardi Gras or walk through the centuries old village on a quiet, misty morning. Many wonderful and talented artists, musicians, and other eclectic people live in the neighborhood making it an always inspirational place to visit or live.

What makes this apartment unique

There are many wonderful and relaxing ways to enjoy the guesthouse and yet be a quick walk to great bars and restaurants. During Mardi Gras, you can step out on the front porch to watch the pop up parades.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Rita has a lovely place in the best part of Bywater. Sheets and towels impeccably laundered and folded, the place was spotless, toiletries, cold water , coffee and half and half all there when we arrived. Short walk to coffee shop, restaurant, Frenchman street music scene, and the French Quarter. We had a wonderful place to stay.

Great stay in Marigny...

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to New Orleans was fantastic, in part by the beautiful, comfortable and stylish home that we stayed in. Rita was very gracious and helpful... we enjoyed our stay with her and plan to go back as soon as possible! This historic shot-gun home in the Marigny/Bywater area was close to everything we needed (walking distance). The neighbors were friendly (as was everyone we met!). We experienced a wedding "parade" from the corner church/wedding facility down the street in front of her home. Between Bourbon Street, Frenchmen Street and even the St. Patrick's Day parade that was held one block away, I can't say enough about how much fun we had. Renting this beautiful, comfortable apartment (the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in...) was the best decision I've made concerning traveling in a long time. You won't be sorry if you rent with this apartment from Rita Rans.

Wonderful stay in the perfect spot to explore NOLA!!

  • 5 of 5

Rita's little studio apartment was ideal for the two of us to get away and explore the city. It's close to both Frenchman St. and the Bywater but was also an easy walk to the Quarter. The bed, the shower, and the coffee were all nice touches. We appreciated being tucked in a neighborhood instead of staying on a crowded street. Neighbors were friendly and respectful. We would absolutely stay at Rita's place again next time we visit New Orleans. Thank you for everything!!

Cozy and quiet getaway perfect for couples

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring New Orleans, eating amazing food and listening to energizing and soulful music. At the end of the day we felt so lucky to come back to this cozy home in a very nice neighborhood. We loved the nearby restaurants and felt very safe. The bed was simply divine, the decorations tasteful and the host thought of all our needs. Highly recommended!

Perfect - cozy and close to all you want!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here multiple times for a few reasons. Some reasons were for peace and solitude others to celebrate and have a great time in true New Orleans fashion. Either way - Rita’s Place was perfect for my home away from home and allowed me to do whatever I was in the mood for. Venture to cute artist cafes in the neighborhood or dark, dive bars - there are plenty around. Its an easy and safe walk to the Frenchman to watch live music or dine at some amazing places like threee muses. I always enjoy staying here and hope to come again soon!
