Overview

Lower Garden District Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Suite 1 bedroom and 1 Bath. Sleeps 1 Couple Maximum

In the luscious garden of a gated home, in the middle of the city, across the splendid Coliseum Square and it’s waterfall lulling you to sleep lies this wonderful garden home.

The owners, an artist couple, have carefully thought out every detail to provide luxurious, comfortable living in this gracious garden home. Their 400 sq ft studio converted into a large elegant and comfortable suite for 2. Equipped with a queen-size mattress with luxury cotton linens, full bath with shower and all linens and toiletries supplied. A cook’s kitchen supplied with all basics and more, all new appliances and washer/dryer and large HD flat TV.

Nestled in a beautifully landscaped courtyard with fruit trees, scented trees, and flowers and sculptures by local metal artists. Have your morning coffee seated in one of the several sitting and leisure areas throughout, while enjoying this extraordinaire courtyard or lay in the hammock in the lazy afternoon, under the palm tree before heading back to the active city.

At the heart of New Orleans lies this gated home, a refuge nestled in the vibrant Lower Garden District. Located across from the magnificent Coliseum Square Park and intimately connected to everything... the mansions and gardens of the Lower and Garden District, the Arts and Warehouse District with all the museums, art galleries and finest restaurants, the adorned tree-lined boulevard of St. Charles and it's famous Streetcar.

Shopping at Magazine Streets, antique shops, art galleries, bespoke clothiers, artisan jewelers, potters, coffee shops and fine eateries is just blocks away.

Second Line Studios is at walking distance.

The French Quarter and shopping of Royal, Riverwalk and Canal Place, the Convention Center and the Port of New Orleans are within a mile, all walk-able.

About Matilde Alberny

Greetings! We are Matilde and Gustavo, both visual artists. We came in 1999 to New Orleans for an exhibit of Gustavo and barely few hours later fell irrevocably in love with the city.

We recurrently exhibit in Ariodante Gallery in Julia Street. Gustavo is a well-known artist and regularly shows abroad and other cities of the United States. That is one of the reasons we travel often.

Matilde Alberny purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Matilde Alberny chose Lower Garden District

We lived in the French Quarter, then the Lower Garden District and found the perfect mélange of village, rural laissez faire and city life and entertainment. A walk in the afternoon by Magazine Street or hearing the fountain of the Coliseum Square at night is enough to fall in love over and over again.

What makes this cottage unique

The charm of our garden, the smells of the trees, Noche and Amber, both fixed cats live in the yard, wanting to hear the voices from our visitors while enjoying the luxury of this peace. By the way, Noche and Amber appreciate it immensely when you put some food out and fresh water for them. Food is always in a container outside the kitchen door of the main house.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Was not sure what to expect but, it more than exceed our expectations. The cottage was like an artist loft. The owners added a lot of personal and thoughtful detail. The artwork and the owners are just as amazing as their artwork. I would most definitely recommend this place if any plans a vist to NOLA. The neighborhood is safe and well maintained. One place you must vist is DISTRICT, great food and yummy doughnuts.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit at Matilde's cottage. We walked Magazine street, and also walked to French Quarter. It was easy to catch and ride public transportation when we chose to do that. The one room cottage had everything we needed and very efficient. We WILL go back again!!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

So glad we found this rental at the last minute. The location was perfect, the one room cottage is clean and efficiently laid out. Décor has a modern feel but still speaks to the New Orleans aesthetic. As an artist I appreciated being surrounded by the artwork of the owners. We were always able to get a parking space right in front of the house. Matilde was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed meeting her visiting brother and discovering we had actually met his wife(also and artist) several years ago in our hometown. Funny!

Thank You for a great introduction to New Orleans.

Good home base for exploring

  • 5 of 5

Matilde and family were so accommodating for us on a last minute need for a place when another home away owner cancelled on us when we were en route from Austin, TX. The cottage was situated in the perfect spot for exploring other parts of the city, yet still very close to the Quarter. The streetcar was a few blocks away, along with plenty of restaurants and shops. A beautiful park is across the street where we visited several times during our stay.

The cottage is a beautiful studio space with everything you need for a nice stay. The plants outside are gorgeous and the owners' art pieces line the walls of the cottage. The owners made us feel like family and were unobtrusive at the same time. We would love to come back to this spot on outer next visit!

The best location in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage with gated security. Since no car is really necessary in NOLA, this property is minutes from the St Charles train or the bus taking you downtown is right in front of the house. You are also minutes from Magazine street with all of it's great eats and shopping. Oh, Surrey's Cafe has the best shrimp & grits. Owners were incredibly nice!
