About Debra & James Falco
We are from New England with ties to New Orleans. Our cousin lived here for many years working at LSU. Our youngest daughter attended Loyola University, graduating just recently and now working on a PHD in chemistry at Boston College. This gave us a good reason to come down and visit. We fell in love with New Orleans at first site: the music , the people , the food and our properties! The fact is, the people here are just great; so hospitable and welcoming. The experiences we have had here are heart- warming. Since our kids have all moved out we now have two dogs and other animals. The last addition to our household is from New Orleans himself, a sweet mix breed that we adopted from the street. He is a gentle, beautiful dog you see in the photo of the property! You don't have to worry though if you're not a dog lover, he is not at the Marigny street property, he is home with us! We pride ourselves on having guests enjoy our property here. If you choose the "Painted Lady Cottage" you would have made a great decision. It is a clean NOLA style cottage with art and a homey feeling. It's a great little place with a lot of feelings and it will inspire you to love life and be yourself.
Debra & James Falco purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Debra & James Falco chose Faubourg Marigny
It's an Historic Property close to everything. It is the cottage behind the estate home called the "Painted Lady" on the National Registry and a landmark for New Orleans. Many visitors stop by just to take pictures of the beautiful Estate home which leads to the cottage around back of the estate. The Cottage is small with open lofted area and staircase that accents it's beauty. Plus, New Orleans speaks for itself: Great night life, shows, tours, entertainment, sporting events, The Garden District, Bourbon Street the French Quarter and Frenchmen St. With all the goings on here: Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Southern Decadence, the grand Mississippi River, Jackson Square, The Super Dome, Sugar Bowl, Super Bowl and Final Four, The Saints and The Pelicans, Golf, Fishing, Parades, Parties, People; plus, Tulane and Loyola... it's the best place in the USA for a good time! Also, along the Mississippi at Jackson Square are horse drawn carriages and Café Du Monde, the home of the beignet.
What makes this Cottage unique
Location, location, location and the location is simply fantastic: if you walk one block to St Claude you have jazz clubs, big bands or street performers and restaurants galore usually Cajun style, if you can handle it! If you go the other way, on Esplanade, there is The "Port of Call" restaurant or a bit further toward the Quarter you may run into a marching band or a corner quintet or a solo guitarist. They are all great and at all times of the day or night. Don't forget the neighborhood cafe and coffee shops that are everywhere. Just west is the Garden District, not far away either. Hop on the trolley at St Claude or take a cab or Uber and stroll down the magnificent St. Charles Ave. and visit the many elegant mansions, shops, hotel bars and diverse restaurants. And while there, don't forget to visit Magazine Street, another popular hangout for a great shopping, dining and entertainment experience. Continue along the trolley route to Audubon Park, the Golf Course and the Zoo. Here you will see the great architecture of Loyola and Tulane Universities. Tour the mansions neighborhoods to get another view of early 1900's New Orleans history and the Garden District. The Homes over there are spectacular, to say the least!

Great location, great price!
We loved our stay. It's a separate guest house in the back of the property. It was well lit at night and easy to get back to our door. We felt safe in the neighborhood and loved the diversity. The cottage was clean and has everything you might expect in a rental. This place is entirely open, the beds up in the loft are not separated by doors.
There is a very nice, new grocery store less than a block away and a cool coffee shop around the block. We walked to Frenchmen once and took Uber rides on all of our other outings. There was always an Uber nearby, never more than a 2 minute wait. You could also board the street car by Walgreens and ride all day for about $3. We'd stay again!
This property is located a short distance from Bourbon Street in a neighborhood being revitalized. We walked to Bourbon Street and its surrounding area and were even closer to Frenchmen, one of our favorites. The area has some great little restaurants. The house is on the backside of the property. It is clean and comfortable. We had trouble with the AC but it was quickly repaired. We would stay here again!
Great location, great neighborhood, very spacious.
The neighborhood was recommended to us by a friend who is a native of New Orleans. We stayed there with our 2 boys ages 11 & 13. It was the perfect location to be close to the French Quarter and nice to come home to a quiet neighborhood at night. We walked home at various times at night and always felt safe. Walking was a great way to get around, there’s also a street car on N Rampart we used a lot. Yes, it’s close to the French Quarter and Frenchmen street but the neighborhood itself is wonderful. Some of the local places we would recommend are Gene’s po boys, Buffa’s and Kajun’s Pub. As far as the property goes, it was cute, clean and spacious. We had no problems so just had basic communication with the owners. The only reason I’m giving our stay 4 instead of 5 starts is that there was construction on the house next door from 7am-4pm during the week. I know the owners aren’t responsible for that and it won’t last forever but just wanted to mention why the rating. Overall I would definitely recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.
We LOVED the cottage. It was very nice and clean. Amazing location close to all the action. We had the best trip and this cottage definitely helped with that. We will definitely use this again in future trips.
Exceptional spot and accessible to everything and space was comfortable. Perfect for Nola getaway!
We loved this clean, cozy cottage at the back of the property. What impressed is it's location! We walked to Frenchmen St and the French Quarter in minutes. We ate, drank and and listened to jazz and rock groups all over the city! It's simply a great place to getaway and enjoy NewOrleans! The owners were available whenever we had a question.
The "Joint" has the best BBQ food in the Bywater along the Mississippi!
The house was very nice and clean. However it was not as close to the French quarter as we all thought it would be. We had to uber every time otherwise it would be like a 25 minute walk and we weren’t sure how safe the area was at night. The downstairs portion of the house gets very cold while the loft if you leave the heat on it gets extremely hot. There was not really a balanced temperature which was a bit frustrating. Overall it was a nice place to stay.
This residence is one block to Elysian Fields and another two blocks to Esplanade. There is public transportation one block away at the corner of St Claude and Elysian Fields. The cottage is only 2 blocks to Frenchmen Street with many restaurants and music establishments and another 3 blocks to the French Quarter. Many nights you will actually see live brass bands playing on the street at Frenchmen St.
On Frenchmen Street there is an 'art gallery' for all your Nola treasures and your shopping pleasure. It is also about a ten minute walk to Bourbon Street! The Super Dome is 2 miles and the Garden District about 4 miles. This is a great place to come for Tulane and Loyola graduations! Louis Armstrong Park is only about 1/2 mile walk. The Mississippi River tours are just a short walk away along with Harrah's Casino and the famous Café Du Monde and the Original French Market coffee stand. Additionally, Canal street is a bit further up which runs into Bourbon Street and the Parade routes. There are coffee shops, local bars with entertainment and some of the best food New Orleans has to offer. Decatur Street is the place for some of the best seafood around. Enjoy the street music daily which is an integral part of the home of Jazz music, New Orleans! There is also a horse race course 3 miles called the Fairgrounds.
