Overview

About the property

Larger than it looks. Brimming with charisma & walking distance to all the fun!

This bright space is 800 s.f. of the Caribbean charm hidden away in the heart of the Marigny--which puts it pretty much close to everything. The bustling, up-and-coming St Claude Avenue is one and a half blocks away. The Avenue is alive with funky dive bars, art galleries, junk and thrift shops, and even theatres. Coffee shops are all around! And eateries of all kinds seem to pop up over night.

The entire rest of the Crescent City is easily at hand. We are 10 walkable blocks from the French Quarter.

Mardi Gras? The Season begins just 3 blocks from here with the irreverent Krewe de Vieux and ends in the same spot with the Ste. Anne Walking Parade--where EVERYONE is in the Krewe and the bar is set sky high for costuming!

Jazz Fest? French Quarter Fest? Chaz Fest? Oyster Fest? VooDoo Fest? It seems that we have parades, 2nd lines and festivals one after the other in close formation. Or maybe you’re here for a convention. There are oodles of them here every year. The CBD is just minutes away by cab or Uber.

Restaurants abound. From funky/trendy to 4 star: running the gamut from run-down-your-arm juicy poboys, thick gumbos and firey crawfish boils to the finest dining at Commanders and Bayona: from Baccanal at the far-end-elbow of the Bywater to Maurapas or The Three Muses on Frenchman Street. But even in this lush landscape, it’s sometimes just right to eat at “home”. You’ll have a spacious, fully equipped kitchen here to rustle up a home-made meal. With the Food Co-op just a block away, you can conveniently “make groceries” for whatever inspires you.

We’ll have information on all the above including plantations and swamp tours and everything in between available when you arrive.

ABOUT THE SPACE:

You’ll just enter through the green security gate with coded entry, walk down the lighted drive to find your "home-away-from-home" with a deck in the back corner of our good-sized back yard. The entire colorful house is yours. With 800 cozy square feet, you’ll have one bedroom and one bath with a large kitchen/eating area, living room, front porch plus a deck for morning coffee or that last cocktail before you call it a day. This out-of-sight hideaway can be just the reprieve you need from the abundant action of the Crescent City.

Parking is on the street and rarely an issue. If you don’t feel like walking (which is a great choice), bicycles can be rented in several places nearby (a great way to get around the city). Buses are found on St Claude and

Lyft or Uber are only an app away. We are thrilled that the new North Rampart street car line is only 5 blocks away and it will get you all over town for a song.

The large back yard is shared with us. We live on site in the historic front house. We have a workshop across the space from you and we have two dogs who will keep us company. They do not come into the cottage and they are never outside without us. Chances are that you will meet them! If you’re not a “dog person” another spot would probably be a better fit for you. The entire outside area is well kept and, depending on the time of year, filled with foliage and greenery.

A laundry shed is located behind our house and we are happy to share it with you.

Smoking on the deck and the covered patio is acceptable.

YOUR HOSTS:

Your hosts are two sisters. Stephanie has an extensive and creative background in antiques and furniture refinishing while Marna has been busy for years rehabbing as much of the historic architecture in New Orleans as she can manage. While we’ll give you your space and privacy, we ARE on hand with hopefully helpful information--or help--if needed.

Three wonderful weeks!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 wonderful weeks staying here. The unit is very well equipped and spacious with a very comfortable bed. It is in a quiet residential location yet close enough to walk easily to Frenchmen St and, a bit further, to the French Quarter. The neighbourhood nearby is great. We especially liked The Franklin Restaurant and the Faubourg wine shop.

We enjoyed sitting outside for breakfast every morning. Marna and Stephanie are delightful company and the dogs, Beaux and Liza, are very friendly. We felt that we were leaving good friends when the sad time came to say goodbye. Thanks, Marna and Stephanie, for making our stay so enjoyable and we hope to return very soon.

Owner's Response: With your 3 week stay, we came to think of you as neighbors and friends! Even Beaux and Liza wonder where you went. Thanks for the wonderful things you had to say about your stay, our sweet place, and the neighborhood that is so full of rich and colorful places to discover. You can be sure that we'll be looking forward to your return!

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife were here for 1 week to visit New Orleans. We have been traveling alot and I can say that this is the best vacationhome I stayed in, ever! Nice neighborhood to be in. Marna, Stephanie and Bo (the dog) were the best hosts. They made our stay perfect! Highly recommended.

It is also not far from the french quarter. You can catch the streetcar for 3$ for a day. Or a cab for about 10 to 12$ for a ride. All of this made it perfect and you dont need a car to get around town.

Owner's Response: You two were our first guests ever from Sweden. We are SO happy that you picked our Cottage for your visit to New Orleans!!!! We couldn't have been luckier. It was such a treat to talk about your country and your home while you were seeing ours for the first time. We would do it again any time. Thanks so much for your kind words. And Bo says to tell you "hello"--you really know how to pet a dog!

Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5

This property and the owners were amazing. Location was great...close to all the fun "stuff" but away from the craziness. Felt like you were at home. All around great experience.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was centrally located so we could walk to alot of places. It was comfortable and perfect for my husband and me. The bed had a memory foam mattress so it felt awesome after a hard day walking the FQ . The only negative comment I have is that the bathroom had a pedastel sink with very little space for storage. We never saw Marna but Stephanie was friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: So sorry I didn't get to meet you two! I was in Seattle visiting grandkids. Really happy to hear that the location worked so well for you--we are SO lucky in that regard. And I would sleep in that bed myself, if I could! The sink is a pedestal--kinda has to be--but there is quite a bit of storage in the cabinet behind you. Happy to hear that the rest of the space worked for you!

Comfortable and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

Close to everything!!! We could walk anywhere (which really felt good). We also rented a car for a day and had no problem parking right in front of the place. Great experience.

Map

Car: not necessary

Coffee shops abound! The local Fresh Food Co-op is one block away and groceries can be 'made' at the Mardi Gras Zone just a few more blocks away. Funky dive-bars and craft cocktail watering holes are plentiful and within walking distance. Restaurants from fine dining (The Country Club, Feelings), BBQ (The Joint), to the uniquely quirky (Lost Love Lounge), Middle Eastern (Cafe Istanbul)...you name it. It's all here. Night life litters St Claude Av and the local gold standard of Frenchman Street is plentifully at hand. Art galleries. Even two theatres (offering small presentations, slam poetry and The Goodnight show) are up the block.
