Chris was a great guest. He left The Cottage very clean. He was very respectful and didn't make any noise at all. Please come back any time.

We are a family with two young boys (1 and 3 years old) that have recently returned to this unique, culturally rich city. We love Mid-City and all of the positive changes that have occurred here.

Mark Holcomb purchased this cottage in 2012

The Cottage is a separate structure on a double lot that we purchased at the same time as the master house next to it. When the previous tenant left, we decided to fix it up and give visitors a chance to see New Orleans like a local.

Walking proximity to so many entertainment options, including Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, the Fairgrounds, City Park and Endymion, as well as the ability to easily get downtown to the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, the Central Business District and the Super dome.

EXCELLENT STAY AND HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We rented the place for the second week of JazzFest 2014, and it was better than we hoped. Walking distance to the fest, quiet neighborhood, close the bus lines and streetcar line, right next to city park, shopping area with food and grocery stores close by. The place was nicely appointed, with quality furnishings (really nice towels for example), the AC was strong enough to keep place cool.
Look, I am trying to find a flaw here, but I really liked the place. The owner was really helpful and very nice, again, just had a great time. Would definitely stay again.

The Cottage was much bigger than I expected. The location was perfect with several restaurants in close proximity. We were able to relax in the patio and enjoy the beautiful weather. I would definitely stay at The Cottage again.

FUN FAMILY TIME

  • 5 of 5
Great place for me and my family to stay while visiting New Orleans. Street car stop right in front of the house. Lots of little places within walking distance to eat and enjoy. Everything was provided for us - full kitchen and bath - linens and towels - coffee - shampoo, conditioner. Very clean! The off street parking was a bonus. They even had games that we played one evening when it was pouring rain outside. Thank you Mark for the great stay!

GREAT LOCATION, HELPFUL OWNERS, CLEAN AND CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is just as described. It's in a great neighborhood, close to the streetcar line, city park (voodoo fest) and fairgrounds (jazzfest). It was very clean and comfortable. The backyard was nice for sitting and enjoying our morning coffee.
The power went out one night in the entire neighborhood and Mark was kind enough to text me and make sure we were ok. He also left a flashlight in the mailbox in case we needed it.

I will definitely stay here again!

Thanks Mark!

VISIT LIKE A LOCAL

  • 5 of 5
We spent a long weekend in New Orleans and wanted to see a local's version of the city. We loved our stay at the cottage. It was clean with new furnishings, had everything we needed, and is surrounded by amenities. It was easy to get to anywhere in the city in 10 minutes and even has a parking space out front. The cottage is private and the owner checked in to make sure we had everything we needed and even suggested a great parade in the French Quarter. We had a lovely morning in the nearby City Park, with beignets, a sculpture garden and giant art museum. There was plenty of room for two and four people could comfortably stay as well. If you really want to visit New Orleans stay at the cottage where you can explore more of the city.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
What a great location for a visit to New Orleans! We were there for a half marathon that ended at City Park so we were a very short walk from the finish line. This would be a great location for Jazz Fest or any event at the park. The place was clean and comfortable. I had a chance to meet the owners who are very friendly and accommodating. A+ recommendation.
