PRIVATE COTTAGE 3 BLOCKS FROM THE QUARTER

New Orleans Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

In the historic Faubourg Marigny, three blocks from the French Quarter and one block from the Jazz on Frenchman Street. Built in 1911 and renovated this year with a walk in shower, granite and copper countertops, and a plaster finish in the bedroom. We kept the original details, like rough hewn beams made of barge wood.

The location is ideal for exploring the city during festivals. There is a trolley stop 3 blocks away,plenty of Taxis on Frenchman Street, and we provide 2 loaner bicycles so you can explore the city like a local. We are in a great area and it's easy to access all areas of the city from here. If you're flying in and are just going to be exploring the city then you really don't need to rent a car. There are plenty of places to eat, buy groceries, and pick up anything you may need for your stay within walking distance. Taxi ride from the airport to here is about $30 per 2 persons. If you do need a car or are driving in parking is usually easy on our block, but off street parking is an option. If you don't fee like cooking, walk to one of the nearby cafes or order in. You can find Turkish, Vietnamese, tapas, Thai, vegetarian, classic Creole, German, Italian or Mexican food within a 6 block radius.

We live in the front house and can address questions or concerns if they arise. From our perspective, this neighborhood blends the best of New Orleans. If you have sent a request for dates and tried to email us back to book with no response, then please call me. We are experiencing problems with VRBO's new set up for emails and are not recieving emails coming back wanting to rent the property.

Keywords: Near the French Quarter, one block from jazz on Frenchman Street. Walk down a driveway and through a leafy courtyard with hot tub and pond to your cottage. It's close to the excitement of Jazzfest, Mardi Gras, the Superbowl, Satchmofest...

We are an easy going couple in our 40's. He restores outdoor sculptures, classic cars and makes furniture. She is a neuroscientist and writer.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Besides the reasons mentioned, it is one the best preserved historic districts in the country. Apparently this was the neighborhood where the fine gentleman of the French Quarter kept their mistresses.

As mentioned, we have 2 bicycles we can loan you for exploring the quarter or riding to JazzFest. We love this city and are happy to help you have a good visit. It's the best neighborhood we have found in the city.

PERFECT GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at the cottage for five days over Easter Weekend. The first thing that we noticed is that the pictures don't do the property justice. The cottage is charming, well maintained, clean and well equipped. The location could not have been better-- stumbling distance from the action on Frenchman Street and the Quarter, yet far enough away from the action to indulge in the peace and quiet of a beautiful New Orleans evening in the back garden.


We discovered a great little grocery store about 5 minutes away that was open 24hrs a day. And our little kitchen made it possible for us to grab a quick bite at home most mornings before heading out for the day. We had access to the bikes but preferred to walk around the city.

Chad was helpful and welcoming. When we had questions or concerns he was quick to provide suggestions and answers. He was a terrific host from the moment we arrived. He even recommended a festival at Louis Armstrong Park, which we LOVED.

I wouldn't hesitate to book this property again and again. I'd recommend it to anyone hoping to take in the city at their own pace.

We ate (too much), we drank (a lot), and were merry (so much dancing). New Orleans is a magical place and this location made our stay that much better.

Thanks Chad. We'll definitely see you again.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
The guest cottage was nicer than expected from the photos! The bedroom is very large with good sized closets. The re-purposed windows in the bathroom are beautiful. The patio outside the front door is nice to sit and relax in. The location cannot be beat. Chad is extremely personable and helpful. I had my own bike during my stay and he fixed it when it broke down! I would definitely stay here again.

The cottage was really at walking distance of all that was exciting in New Orleans. We did enjoy the use of the cottage. Mayby it was a little too dark in the room beneath. But all the rest was just fine.

STAY: Feb 15-March 31 (six weeks)
ME: Female artist/retired teacher with white shepherd/husky. Veteran vacation home renter.
YOU: Not a typical tourist. Prefer unique accommodations over expensive cookie-cutter hotels. Seek value, don't need "posh." Care more about the experience than the amenities. Appreciate--or at least respect--alternative lifestyles. Embrace local culture.
THE COTTAGE: Open the wrought-iron front gate, walk alongside the main house and through the tall wooden gate, enter a small patio (shared with main house) with outdoor seating, hot tub, plants & water feature. To the side is a laundry room, storage & bike parking. Enter the cottage door to discover the rustic, open-concept, two-story quarters. Furnishings are an eclectic mix of thrift store finds, hand-crafted pieces, and salvaged goods. The entertainment system is way better than any hotel. [I don't cook, so can't critique the kitchen but it seemed well-stocked.] The groovy old staircase requires good mobility/balance, but is worth the climb up to a huge bedroom with soaring beamed ceilings, a wall of closets, and comfy bed. The bathroom's shower cleverly repurposes old windows. Most of the cottage's original charm has been preserved. If you hear creaks in the night it's not a burglar--it's probably the old wooden floors. Sadly, the bedroom windows don't open for breezes but there's a ceiling fan. Main house resident Chad has put his craftsmanship to good use in creating this funky cottage!
THE LOCATION: In a word, FABULOUS. Enchanting area of quaint shotgun homes, cobbled sidewalks, and friendly folks. It felt safe. [WARNING: Due to its popular location PARKING IS A FRUSTRATING CRAPSHOOT. If you score a spot near the cottage, don't move your car!] Walking to Frenchmen St., the Cabrini Dog Park and the French Quarter is an easy joy. Even better is strolling around the marvelous Marigny & Bywater neighborhoods, full of amazing architecture, corner bars, cafes, shops, parks, bizarre attractions. Chad steered me to many local treasures. NOLA residents are the friendliest, most creative, eccentric, free-spirited folks I've ever encountered! Dogs are welcome many places, and appreciated everywhere.
MY FAVES: The Joint BBQ, Cake Cafe & Bakery, The Country Club for eats. Anywhere on Frenchmen St. for music (you'll hear it echoing all the way to the cottage each night.) Krewe du Vieux, 'Tit Rex, and Chewbacchus neighborhood parades during Carnival Season.

Very nice, cozy, and only two blocks to Frenchman's Street. Pleasant longer walk to the By water. Plan to reserve for Tale of the Cocktail in July
