Overview

Faubourg Marigny Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Originally built in 1865, this stylish, spacious, 1 bedroom apartment is located on the ground floor of a newly renovated 'storehouse'. To better preserve the seven renovated doors and transoms surrounding the ground floor, the unit was refurbished as a spacious studio.

This spectacular flat has a private entrance, a courtyard, and boasts approximately 1200 square feet of living space with 12.5 foot ceilings. The apartment is tastefully decorated in an eclectic style; a combination of antique and modern furniture with just the right amount of New Orleans funk thrown in.

The apartment has a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen, a large walk in shower with separate dressing area, WI-FI / Internet connection and a 45' high-definition flat screen TV. Furnishings include a buffet, a dining table that seats four, dressing table, king-size bed, armoire, desk, extremely comfortable leather sofa, love seat and oversize chair and ottoman. 

Central air conditioning and four ceiling fans make this space a veritable, breezy oasis for relaxing after jaunts around our beautiful but sometimes humid city.

Even though the apartment is better suited as a two person occupancy, there is plenty of space available to provide sleeping accommodations for two more guests.

Area Description: 

We are located only one block away from the Mississippi River at the corner of Chartres Street and Marigny Street in the historic Faubourg Marigny, just blocks away from the French Quarter.

The Street Car line allows you fun and easy access to the French Quarter and other attractions such as the Aquarium of the America's, Jackson Square, Café Du Monde, the The World War II Museum any many other popular destinations. Walking, however, is not a problem as you are only three blocks away from the French Quarter and two blocks away the hip Frenchmen Street mecca of bars, restaurants, and jazz clubs. 

Within walking distance:

Frenchman Street - 2 blocks

Mississippi River - 1 block

Washington Square Park - 1 block

Old U.S. Mint - 2 blocks

French Market - 3 blocks

French Quarter - 3 blocks

Garden District - 3 miles

Street Car line - 3 blocks

About Frankie Cheek

I am a lifelong resident of Greater New Orleans and have been building, renovating and managing a portfolio of Investment Properties for over 35 years. Since retiring from the US Government 3 years ago, I am now this property's full-time Innkeeper. I live onsite, and love to accommodate / facilitate the needs of my guests who are visiting my beloved home-town.

Why Frankie Cheek chose Faubourg Marigny

This neighborhood is a hot spot where locals come the best of everything New Orleans has to offer - great jazz, amazing food, local art & hand-crafted jewelry. It is the point of origin for several Carnival marching parades and local events.

The historic location in the Marigny Triangle allows you a glimpse into NOLA's historic past beyond the French Quarter as you marvel at the 17th century architecture that has survived the ages and become home to many writers, painters, artists and musicians. This area boasts the unique architecture and inherent beauty NOLA is known for; vividly painted homes, trendy restaurants, coffee shops and jazz clubs with an amazing mixture of all types of people co-exhisting in this vibrant, diverse, urban setting.

Great Property, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

We had such a blast in New Orleans, and one of the main reasons was Frankie's Rental Property. It is so nicely decorated, very large, clean and he supplies you with everything you could possibly need. We had made no plans prior to our visit and picked Frankie's brain along with some of his friends to enlighten us on what to do and where to eat. We stayed in the Marigny-Bywater area for dinner each night and ate and drank very well in addition everything was extremely delicious and very affordable. Every night after dinner we would head to The Friendly Bar across the street and enjoy a few drinks along with great conversation with the locals - So Much Fun!!!! We were within walking distance of everything and felt safe the whole time. We definitely will come back to NOLA only if we can stay in one of Frankie's Rentals. Thank you so much for your hospitality!!!!!

Just as pictured and described

  • 5 of 5

We were two natives returned home to play for a week. The first word in the title of Frankie's Place (FUN) was all I needed to give it our consideration. Frankie was very easy to work with and was gracious even though we were searching the evening before arrival. He had a parking space set aside for us and let us know of his favorite local eateries in walking distance. For the most part we spent our evening time on Frenchman at Bamboula's. Best fried oysters we had ever had and our first intro to an Abita "strawberry gator". Delish! We stayed aware, but never had any major stranger dangers in walking to and from Frenchman or the Quarter at night. It was fun in the morning to swing the doors open and drink coffee at the patio table in front of the door. It put us VERY close to the locals who were all friendly, maybe one a little too friendly :o) The Friendly bar across the street started perking up in the late afternoon and stayed audible until the middle of the night, but thanks to Frankie having Apple TV, we could play a nice "summer rain" noise through the speakers and drown out the street noise. The bed was very comfortable and the flat was outfitted with everything we needed for our 5 night stay. Being able to eat in and do laundry was a huge plus. IF you are able to travel with your bike, there are TONS of folks in the Marigny pedaling around, you might like to join them. We would definitely recommend this flat. Just bring your ipad, iphone or other device with a good white noise app for quieting down the fun outside!

Mardis Gras fun

  • 5 of 5

Frankie has a nice place here. Very nicely decorated, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We were in the 1 bedroom flat that has a living room area, full kitchen, dressing area, and bathroom with a huge shower. We may come back with the whole family and rent the 2 bedroom upstairs, the flat, and the 1 bedroom attached to the flat. Several blks. walk to French Quarter, but not bad at all. Overall, we loved it.

Fantastic New Orleans Experience

  • 5 of 5

Visited for a long weekend to enjoy Mardi Gras festivities and the flat was absolutely perfect. It's spacious and beautifully restored while maintaining its historic charm. I agree with other reviewers in that the pics don't quite do it justice. The location could not be better; we didn't have a car for our stay, but had no issue getting to and from nearly every activity we took in. It's just a couple blocks from great bars and restaurants on Frenchman Street and an easy walk to all that the French Quarter has to offer. There are also a couple coffee shops just around the corner, where we started each morning, and a solid neighborhood dive bar directly across the street. The only slight drawback is that the old architecture makes it susceptible to noise from passers-by and upstairs guests, so probably not the best option if you're looking to sleep in or have kids.

Overall a great experience and I would absolutely return to this property.

Frankie's place is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Friday afternoon and were met by our host who gave us a tour of this recently renovated gem just a few blocks from Frenchman's and an easy walk or cab ride to French Quarter. This house has a great layout with modern decor and a wrap around porch where we enjoyed our morning coffee. It also has a great bar right across the street that lives up to its name, the friendly bar. There is a great little grocery store nearby that also has really good poboys, frenchman's deli. We felt right at home and our host and the neighborhood treated us like friends visiting. We will be back soon!
