About Rita Rans
Love the city of New Orleans and all of the quirkiness it has to offer. I've lived here 16 years and think the Marigny is the best.

Apartment Exactly as Advertised
This is a very small unit, but you can make it work, even for a long stay. There is a narrow staircase, but it's well supported with rails to hold onto, but I would not recommend this unit for anyone with compromised mobility. The location is great, especially if you want to be in the Marigny/Bywater area. Communication with the owner was excellent, and the unit was immaculate, with some nice extras added. There are two cats on the property, but they will leave you alone. The outdoor seating area, which extends the apt. a bit, is lovely.
Cute place, good location
This guesthouse is as described. Very cute and clean. It is a small space, but that’s all we needed! Very good location with easy access to a lot of cute spots and good food!
Cute, quiet retreat in the perfect location
This is the perfect spot to stay in NOLA. It’s close enough to the French Quarter to walk, but far enough away to be quiet. Rita has created a calm oasis in the back where we enjoyed just sitting and talking. Rita was a wonderful host. Didn’t intrude, but was available if we had questions or needed anything. We would definitely stay again. One recommendation would be to add a small table or shelf on the other side of the bed for those who like to have a glass of water for during the night.
We loved our stay in this charming, cozy spot. The outdoor seating area was lovely and we loved the upstairs bedroom. Rita was a great host and check in/check out could not have been easier. Thank you for helping make our trip to New Orleans perfect!
Oasis near the city
We loved our stay at Rita's guest house. Small place, perfect for a young couple looking to spend days exploring the city and have a place to come back and relax. Cable tv, AC, fan upstairs made the stay comfortable.
The 15-20min walk to Frenchman/French quarter helped us get our vacation 'exercise' in, and was very manageable. LOVED Bacchanal restaurant, though we saved that for last since it is not near the rest of the city activities. Plenty of cute cafes and restaurants nearby as well, including a great price for happy hour at the nearby Franklin, and also loved the St Roch Market. Walking in Crescent park was fun, and doing a self-guided walking tour of the historical homes in Garden District is a MUST! Easy to find some on google.
Loved NOLA and Rita's place, and can't wait to come back again!
Wonderful host, charming house
I can’t say enough good things about Rita’s sweet little guest house and her warm hospitality. The house is in the rear of the main house, with a mini fridge and microwave in the downstairs area, and a little bathroom to the right. Spiral steps go up to a comfortable bed. Small but cleverly laid out and comfortable for us, two adults at 6’4 and 5’6. Rita is kind and responsive. We will definitely be staying here in return visits to NOLA. It contributed to a great visit :)
