About the property

Just steps to the best Jazz in the city, and two blocks to the French Quarter

A cozy new construction efficiency in the heart of Frenchman street area. One block from the Local Jazz and Blues clubs of Frenchman St, two blocks from the French Quarter and three blocks from the river. This one block of Touro Street is safe, quiet and home to friendly neighbors and pets. Your cubby is quietly tucked in the back courtyard surrounded by palms and tree views of the other courtyards. Parking on street is free with our visitors pass. Also, a new streetcar line can be caught three blocks down. This line connects to all other streetcars for traveling throughout the city.

Pets are welcomed! We have an enclosed side yard and a dog friendly park and bar (!) down the block.

When the windows are open, you get the sounds of the Jazz nearby, trains in the distance, Mule-drawn carriages, and the river boats.

The Unit has refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishes, and coffee. Television and Internet are provided. Separate Laundry/Closet/Bathroom is attached. The bed is a queen size sofa bed with a memory foam mattress. Your separate entry will provide privacy and security during your stay.

Guests may also enjoy the front porch of the main home to people watch or just enjoy the sunset.

About Cecile - Owner/Property Manager

As a 5th Generation New Orleanian, I finally moved from uptown to the best Block in the city. Wow, I just love my new life in the Marigny Triangle. I spent most of my career with the NOPD but also have been very active in the community. I know most all there is to know about New Orleans.

Please come share our home and enjoy our romantic city !

Cecile - Owner/Property Manager purchased this studio in 2013

Bright and cozy, with amazing hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing time on my first trip to NOLA, and owe a fair share of it to the hospitality of Chris and Cecile! Not only did they greet me warmly, but also invited me to their neighborhood Super Bowl block party, where I got to meet their gregarious neighbors, swap stories and try oysters and crawfish in the sun. Both Chris and Cecile were able to give me advice about where to go and what to do.

The location was perfect for me. Close enough to the French Quarter to do all the big tourist activities, but removed enough to have a quiet place to retreat to. It's also literally around the corner from Frenchman's Street, which is a good place to grab food, a drink and hear some music. A short walk gets you to a street car, allowing you easy access to other neighborhoods.

The cubby itself is cozy, clean and comfortable, with everything you'd want for a short stay: A kitchenette with coffee machine, sink and microwave, wifi, bathroom, small patio area, etc. The bed is a hide-a-bed, but Chris mentioned the mattress was new, and I personally didn't have any trouble sleeping (but your mileage may vary).

I would definitely recommend this place for any individual or couple travelling to New Orleans, and hope to visit again sometime myself. I enjoyed me trip!

Property was perfect. Loved the patio area and the front porch!!

  • 5 of 5

Cecile and Chris were the best!!! Extremely hospitable and knowledgeable about the area. The cubby was perfect. It had a microwave and small fridge so you could bring leftovers back and heat them up instead of it going to waste. The outdoor table and chairs were great to sit out and enjoy the wonderful weather. And the front porch was great to just sit and chat. The other thing that we loved was the fact that it was right off Frenchmen street where all of the good musicians in the city play. It was also just a couple of blocks from the French market and the quieter end of Bourbon Street. Jackson Square and Cafe Du Monde were just a short walk as well. Will definitely stay there again if the cubby is open the next time we visit ;o)

Location

Car: not necessary

The Cubby is one block from the famous Frenchman street which hosts over 11 music venues and two Art markets hosting work from local artist. It is two blocks from the French Quarter offering a multitude of restaurants, clubs, street music, boutiques,, shopping, antiquing and galleries.

The new streetcar line is just a few blocks away, tying into all the other streetcars throughout the city. A $3 all day pass is the best deal in town.
