About Mark Holcomb

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

Why Mark Holcomb chose Mid City

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at the cottage to celebrate our birthdays in NO. It felt like a home away from home. The cottage was very clean and has a well equipped kitchen with a few added extras like popcorn! There were lots of towels, blankets and bathroom supplies, including shampoo and conditioner. It was a little cold in NO during our visit the heating system was great, loved the heated bathroom fan. The streetcar bus line is right across the street so there was need to rent a car, although there is off road parking right in front. We purchased a 3 day Jazzy pass, available at most Walgreens, which gave us unlimited travel, to the French Quarter or anywhere else we wanted to go. City Park is a few block walk, the Sculpture Garden there is worth seeing. First night we got in late so went to Felipinis across the street enjoyed the food and being Wednesday wine was 1/2 price. Shopping was close by, so easy to stock up the kitchen. Lola's, a small restaurant on Esplanade, about a 10 minute walk, not to be missed, especially if you like Spanish food and Sangria. The neighbourhood is beautiful, friendly and safe we walked at night all the time. Mark the owner was very helpful and nice, although we saw very little of him. Hope to ride down on our motorcycles to stay again someday.

Super location cottage

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for one week and it was perfect for my friends and I. It's well equipped with a full kitchen, lots of towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, condiments, etc. The beds were comfortable and everything worked and it was very clean. If we needed anything Mark was right there. Although the upper loft worked for us, I don't think it would be convenient for anyone with mobility issues or a very tall person. The location for us was perfect as it's located at a great axis; esplanade to Frenchmen's and the Quarter in one directions and Carrolton to Uptown, Magazine, Canal, Garden district in the other. City Park is located steps away with a 24 hour beignet coffee shop. There's two super markets within a few blocks and great restaurants; don't miss Parkway Bakery and Tavern and Cafe Degas. This cottage would be ideal for Jazz fest. The location allows you to really see New Orleans rather than being sucked into the French Quarter everyday. The neighbourhood is beautiful and safe. Every night we walked home from Frenchmen's via Esplanade or wondered through the Treme/Mid City constantly stopping and saying hello to folks on their front step. The biggest danger in New Orleans is not wanting leave!

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!
