About Ronald Chee-Awai
I am a young professional who has been fortune and thankful to eat, live and love all the city of New Orleans has to offer as the city evolves during its "Recover, Rebuild, Rebirth"
Ronald Chee-Awai purchased this House in 2011
Why Ronald Chee-Awai chose Faubourg Marigny
This home is my home away from home and was originally renovated with the hope that my friends and family would find a space comfortable, safe and secure while enjoying the city of New Orleans. Every convenience is available at the home in a quiet serene environment.
What makes this House unique
Renovating a diamond in the rough and giving others an opportunity to appreciate the outcome of a historic restoration with no expense spared for the small details. Attention was given to salvaging all the original pine flooring, joists and siding and re purposing the material into antique heart of pine hardwood flooring and the master bedroom ceiling. Salvaged brick, cast iron door hinges, 100 year old wooden panel doors, rim locks and door handles allow the house to have a vintage feel with all the modern 21st century convenience.
Pool / Spa
All the character you could want!
This place is amazing! I couldn't be any happier with my first stay in New Orleans! Ronald was very accommodating and helpful. The house was beautiful! I had a group of 8 and it worked perfectly for us.The rooms were immaculate. The back porch/patio and balcony was my favorite part. It was nice to enjoy breakfast out on the patio. The neighborhood was perfect and had a ton of character. Perfect for walking to French Quarter, but not staying actually in it. I loved the nice touch of the 'before' pictures of the house before it was remodeled - a serious undertaking! The only thing that may have been negative was completely out of Ronald's control: the neighbors are a bit unfriendly and cold - they also have a sign right on their gate expressing disagreement with short term rentals (directed at this house I assume). However, that was the only unfriendliness we ran into our whole trip and I couldn't have been happier with this rental! Thanks so much!
Absolutely amazing house! Location was good.
Beautiful house! Very accommodating for a large group over Thanksgiving. Comfortable beds. Responsive and helpful host. The neighborhood was ok. It was convenient to many things...location was a little sketchy...acceptable during the day...after dark be more cautious.
Great house, great location
This is the second time I've rented this house and the second time was as good as the first. The house is very roomy and all the rooms are well appointed. The house has all modern conveniences and is way better than staying in a hotel. Communication with the owner was seamless and everything went smoothly in regards to access or any questions. The location of the house is great, if you want to get away from the craziness of the French Quarter. There are lots of options for bars and food within a few blocks of the house as well. Marigny is a great location for your home base and you are in walking distance to Frenchman St as well as the French Quarter.
A lovely little house
The house is in a really unique neighborhood very close to many attractions. Everything is clean upon arrival, the owner is thorough and available. The beds are all incredibly luxurious and we had morning beverages on the patio. All in all a place where I would be happy to stay again.
Comfort and class in the heart of Marigny.
This home is absolutely beautiful. Every detail adds to the overall experience! First of all, the location is stellar. My friends and I traveled to New Orleans to celebrate my 30th birthday, and this home provided a comfortable, classy home base within walking district to Frenchman Street, the French Quarter and other restaurants around the neighborhood. We loved Cake Cafe and St. Roch Market, both a 5 minute walk from the house. I'm impressed we ever left the house- it was a vacation in itself! Plush bedding and fabulous goose down pillows, living and dining space that allow you to imagine settling in forever and a beautiful courtyard for drinking coffee in the morning and wine at night. Ron was a gracious host and upon arriving made sure to inform us of every last detail about the house/where to find things. I would most definitely stay here again, and I WILL be back to Nola. There is not enough time to see/hear/taste everything in one trip!
A great space with amenities
If you have a large party it's easy to spread out in this spacious town home. A location that's easy enough to walk into the French Quarter and surrounding neighborhoods. The rear patio and balcony is an added bonus in great weather.
My home is located in the historic Marigny neighborhood that is 2.5 blocks away from the St. Rock Market (unique neighborhood food, wine and coffee) and the Healing Center (Yoga, Gym, Food Coop grocery, Mediterranean restuarant and music venue) and Shadow Box theater. Walk to Franklin Restuarant 2 blocks away or Frenchman street 4 blocks for live music options or the French quarter 7 blocks away.
