The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances including 5 burner gas stove, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc.. The kitchen is fully stocked with all your culinary needs during your vacation whether you are just looking to make a quick breakfast or if you are serving dinner for eight!

Behind the kitchen is a full 4 pc bathroom (including tub and shower) with a beautiful reclaimed organ base custom made into the vanity, features slate tiles in bathtub and tumbled marble tile flooring.

Through the living room’s exposed pocket doors you will enter the second bedroom. This bedroom features an antique art deco styled armoire, QUEEN sized bed w linens, 32” flat screen TV w cable TV and iPod docking clock radio.

Either through the doorway of the second bedroom or entering off the kitchen is the master bedroom and bathroom.

Upstairs in the loft is a daybed (Twin Bed) that will sleep 1 additional guest (extra surcharge), and a lovely second floor deck, bask in the warm New Orleans sun in privacy (patio surrounded by potted palms) or enjoy the evening stars and a cool beverage ! We also have 2 Twin air mattresses that are available to use at an additional surcharge.

Owner Note: Our base price includes 3 sleeping areas that can accommodate 6 people - surcharges apply for additional beds as based on additional housekeeping time (pay) for laundry, set up etc. For extended stays (over 3-4 nights) where additional beds are requested please inquire for quote as surcharges may be lower than the automated system generates.

House features 11 foot high ceilings, heart pine wood floors in living areas and tile floor bathrooms, lots of windows with tons of natural lighting, and lovingly refinished with an eclectic combination of new and salvaged materials gives this cottage a very comfortable feel.

The home is great for families and groups of all lifestyles. The neighborhood is friendly and accommodating to all, host to many local bars and restaurants for all tastes and styles. Marigny, in the opinion of many, has become the more bohemian extension of the French Quarter, increasingly becoming the neighborhood of choice for writers, painters, musicians, street entertainers and artists of all sorts.

The home is non-smoking, but smoking is permitted outside on the front stoop.

Sorry at this time, we ask for no pets.

MINIMUM AGE to rent home is 25 years old and subject to verification upon request.

Great home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our weekend getaway in New Orleans! The house is beautiful and well taken care of and was just perfect for us. It's a quick walk to all the action on Frenchman Street, but far enough away to allow for some quiet downtime when we needed it. Bourbon Street and the French Market are also fairly quick walks so we were able to explore so much of the French Quarter on foot. Would definitely stay here again on future trips. Thank you Liz!

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to French quarter. We went to Frenchmen Street every night to find the best music in town. We found great food in the neighborhood. There is even the local, kinda charming in its own way, dive bar at the end of the street. We got a transit pass - public transit will take you anywhere you want to go.

Liz's house was great. Two bedrooms - it was wonderful for two couples. We didn't use the loft room, but it's definitely usable. The deck was lovely to sit with morning coffee and afternoon drinks. Clean, nicely furnished. Liz was very easy to work with. Highly recommended. Would definitely use this property again.

We really enjoyed the home and the neighborhood. Within walking distance of the Quarter and Frenchman Street. Some interesting characters at the bar down the street, but everyone was very nice.

3 Blocks to the French Quarter, but don't just stop there:

We are only 1 block to Frenchman Street!

A little history:

The most famous and frequently visited section of Frenchmen Street is a short section in the Marigny neighborhood, just down river from the French Quarter. This area was once the plantation of a wealthy Creole born man who made the dice game Craps popular in America. He influenced the city of New Orleans with his joie de vivre–or a keen enjoyment of living– and extravagance. In 1806 his property was subdivided. The area of Frenchman Street in the Marigny neighborhood slowly developed into a happening block with a mix of a unique European flair and cosmopolitan feel.

Now, Frenchmen Street is the thriving epicenter of New Orleans music, culture, and food. The street’s eclectic mix of people, clubs, restaurants, and venues come together like a gumbo to form one of the most energetic and vibrant cultural hot spots in the entire world.

Come to Frenchmen Street to immerse yourself with the locals, and have an experience of New Orleans that you will never forget!
