**Note-We do NOT advertise on Craigslist***

The Marigny Cottage was recently featured on a Disney network TV show called 'Sweet Retreats' which profiles luxury vacation rentals, and the show's hosts chose the Cottage for their vacation!

The Marigny Cottage is a classic Eastlake Victorian townhouse that was constructed in the early 20th century in New Orleans' Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, which is adjacent to and within walking distance of the French Quarter. The Cottage has recently undergone a major renovation that brings out the charm of an early 20th century residence, updated with all modern amenities. The owner recently purchased the Cottage so all furnishings are brand new!

The Cottage, which offers almost 1,500 square feet of living area, has 2 private bedrooms (each with a queen bed) and 1.5 baths, a large formal dining room, a living room, and a spacious eat-in kitchen that opens onto a private courtyard with a Jacuzzi, gas grill and outdoor furniture. The Cottage has 12-foot ceilings, polished hardwood floors, 3 decorative fireplaces and large windows throughout which give the home a light, airy feel. The Cottage has central heating and cooling, and most rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan that takes the edge off of those days when the mercury is running high.

Guests enter the home through a formal entryway characteristic of traditional sidehall cottages. Adjacent to the entryway is a formal dining room featuring an exposed brick fireplace with a decorative mantle and two floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the room in sunlight. This room is furnished with a large farmhouse dining table that seats up to six people and is perfect for those evenings when you just want to order in or have our house manager Sidney prepare you a New Orleans-style feast in our chef's kitchen.

The spacious, light-filled living room has an exposed brick decorative fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa, a loveseat, coffee tables and a lounge chair. The living room also features a 40-inch flat screen HDTV, along with a DVD/CD player and an iPod dock. Wireless high speed internet is available throughout the Cottage.

When you are on vacation nothing is more important than getting a good night's rest. So, we have furnished each bedroom with a new, high-quality pillow top mattress, a down comforter, chenille throws and 600-thread count sheets that we guarantee will make it difficult to get out of bed each morning. Each bedroom has a closet, a dresser, nightstand, an iPod dock/alarm clock, plus the master bedroom has a 26-inch HDTV with DVD player. The master bedroom also has an exposed brick decorative fireplace.

The full bathroom is classic old New Orleans (but in a renovated way) with a pedestal sink and a clawfoot tub with a shower enclosure. The Cottage also has a renovated half-bathroom adjacent to the living room and a large washer and dryer located in the kitchen area. Each bathroom is supplied with high-quality Egyptian cotton towels and bath sheets.

Our large, modern eat-in kitchen is delightfully bathed in sunlight with three sets of windows and a set of French doors that lead to the courtyard. Indeed, our kitchen is uncharacteristically large and airy for historic homes in the Marigny neighborhood. The kitchen features custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and is well-equipped with a complete supply of cookware, dishes and cutlery. Small appliances include a toaster oven, a microwave and a blender. We believe that coffee is one of life's great pleasures (and it's taken pretty seriously in NOLA), so we have provided our coffee-loving guests with three options for their morning brew - an espresso maker, a French press and a traditional coffee maker. After you have brewed your morning coffee, simply take a stroll through the French doors into the courtyard to sip your coffee and listen to the sounds of morning in N'Awlins, which might include the horn of a paddlewheeler making its way down the Mississippi a few blocks away!

And while you are in the courtyard, you might as well enjoy all of the amenities offered - soak in the Jacuzzi, throw some Louisiana shrimp on the grill or just relax on the outdoor furniture. The Cottage on Port is so comfortable that you might not want to leave!

Our local house managers - Merri and Sidney Roussell - are native New Orleanians who can be a resource to our guests during their stay. Sidney owns a catering business and is available to prepare in-home meals for our guests at their request. Sidney is also available by appointment to provide guests with black car service during their stay. Please inquire when booking the property.

About Owner

We are native New Orleanians who currently live in both New orleans and New York. One of us is a writer and part-time designer, while the other is involved in commercial real estate and hospitality.

Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Owner chose Faubourg Marigny

We bought the Cottage because we were looking for a uniquely New Orleans home in a uniquely New Orleans neighborhood. As we work in New Orleans part-time, this is our home when we are there.

What makes this townhome unique

After those New Orleans nights, which frequently run late, involve lots of food and a 'few' cocktails, I love to crawl into the super-comfortable beds and fall into a deep slumber. Also, evenings in the courtyard and Jacuzzi are great because you can sip on a glass of wine, fire up the grill and watch the sun set behind the church steeples in the distance.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

For our first trip to New Orleans we couldn’t ask for a better home to stay in. It was very clean with plenty of amenities. The hot tub was a wonderful option for tired legs and feet from enjoying the city. The owners are a pleasure and are quick to respond if you have a question. The paperwork with recommendations on where to eat was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend this home to people and plan on staying at the same place next time we visit.

Extremely comfortable and well equipped house, which met all our needs

  • 5 of 5

Extremely comfortable and well equipped house, which met all our needs. It was always a pleasure to return "home" from our adventures in New Orleans. In addition to clear instructions for all the various devices including the hot tub, the owners provided helpful information on neighborhood shopping and restaurants. The neighborhood is filled with eccentrically painted little houses. Its a pleasure to walk through the quiet Marigny area to clubs on Frenchmen Street and the French Quarter.

When there was a threat of a hurricane, the caretaker came over immediately and helped us get psychologically prepared - fortunately it passed us by and we waited it out in the hot tub.

Strongly recommend for a family or two couples.

Perfect girl's weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully restored cottage is impeccably decorated and well stocked. It sits in a wonderful neighborhood studded with outstanding dining experiences, including The Franklin for drinks and dinner or night caps with the fun and friendly staff or Who Dat Cafe for brunch that defies words, again served by some of the nicest folks around. Quick walk to the French Quarter and easy trolley or Uber ride to Magazine street a huge plus. Girl's trip perfection. We will absolutely be back!

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

Really quaint little house, very well equipped and situated. It was clean and comfortable and charming and we would certainly book it again and recommend it to friends. Thank you to the owners for making it a home from home. They have thought of everything!!!

Three small little items, no toaster (at least I could not find one), water filter in the fridge needed replacing and the hot tub needed attention (not that we used it - it was too hot). But these are not major items and I'm sure by now have been rectified.

We loved the Margny Cottage! It was very spacious, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Marginy Cottage. Erin and Kevin ha e a beautiful home and provide for pretty much everything you need. It was a great location for our 50th bithday girls trip. We loved our mornings visiting and having coffee on the patio and spent most of our time in the lovely kitchen! The decor of the house is wonderful- we enjoyed the art, pictures and of course the Mardi Gras masks were fun to look at. Having the convenience store so close was a bonus. We enjoyed walking to breakfast and to shops on Frenchman St. ( in our area in Houston you really can't walk anywhere so this was a treat for us)!

In the evenings we took uber which was very easy and reasonable to the French quarter and Frenchmen street. We all agreed that this was the best trip to New Orleans any of us have had! Thank you
