4 BED 2 BATH QUIET RETREAT STEPS FROM MARIGNY/FQ

New Orleans House Rental Photos and Description

Quiet Retreat seeks quiet Guests

We are on a peaceful family residential block that happens to be steps from everything. We have children and families living there, the fruit and vegetable carts calling out every morning. We seek travelers welcome to be a part of that but not disrespect it with noise and disruption. We are not for everyone, but we are very very special. Foodies, families, Girls weekends, Reunions. Beautiful complete rebuild of an historic 1840s New Orleans home.

This is actually two units, one just above the other, with a large private common deck just our the back door with a wonderful shade tree and a catwalk with views overlooking the Marigny and French Quarter all the way to the Mississippi. We have a 2BR/1BA unit and a 1BR/1BA unit that can be combined for larger parties (4 Bedroom 2BA), on a QUIET residential street that happens to be steps to the Quarter and Frenchman street. 4 blocks to Bourbon but retire to a peaceful beautifully renovated oasis.

TOTAL of 5 queen beds, 4 bedrooms, 2 enormous bathrooms each with stackable LG washer/dryer. Each unit features hardwood floors and tiled bathrooms.

The downstairs 2BR has 12 ft high ceilings. We have been doing vacation rentals for 4 years but have just completed the complete renovation of this property October 1, 2013. We had several bookings before we were listed and photos were taken. It is an amazing experience in a fantastic location, steps from Storyville, Congo Square, Louis Armstrong Park, and Cafe du Monde is a 10 minute stroll. We are 4 blocks from Bourbon Street.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I was so lucky to find this wonderful home. The home is renovated down to the last nail and it is lovely. This also means very clean, a biggie for me. The rooms are spacious, the windows let in lovely light throughout the day and the amenities are top notch. The location is ideal for the French Quarter and Marigny, really it is convenient to the whole town as it is located near bus service and the street car. A little walking might be in store to some locations, but its good to work off all the good food and drink! I had a rental car and was able to park in front of the house every day of the 30 I stayed. The linens are lovely and very clean. The kitchen is stocked with new dishes and cookware. There is a sweet, brand new laundry set up as well. Dave was the icing on the cake! He is a hardworking, patient, charismatic darling! He took care of all my needs very quickly. There was never an unanswered text or phone call. He ensured that I was well versed on the town as well. I got a locals guide straight from him! He is very particular about his guests and we had an in depth conversation before I rented to ensure I was the kind of person he wanted in his property. This is in a neighborhood and each resident expects respect of their personal privacy and comfort regarding noise and traffic. This is understandable and makes the location even more desirable for safety reasons as well as general warmth in spirit! As a single woman I felt safe and at ease on this 'up and coming' neighborhood street. A few families, lots of young couples and late 20, early 30 kinds of neighbors. I could not say more about this apartment. I will always look back fondly on my time (a whole month) in this apartment. Good memories and good sleep!

I used to be a travel journalist and believe the best way to experience a place is to live in a real neighborhood.

Dave purchased this house in 2013

There is simply nothing remotely like it anywhere in the city. This is NOT a shotgun where you walk through each others bedrooms, in fact the bedrooms and bathrooms are massive by any standard. This is for the travelers who enjoy quiet at the end of a long day or night out on the town.

QUIET just a stones throw from the heart of the city. Huge rooms, peace and quiet, a real neighborhood on the edge of all the tourism and noise.

Fell in Love

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 3 fantastic weeks in New Orleans (NAWLINS) thanks to the fabulous accommodations and location! The "tree house" was bright, modern, comfortable, quiet and perfect for working (fantastic internet), eating (a full kitchen) and sleeping (the most comfortable bed ever). We had friends join us for a weekend and the queen size murphy bed in the large kitchen magically transformed the kitchen into a comfy guest room! The location was exactly what we were looking for - tucked into a quiet neighbourhood, close to Frenchman Street (our favourite) and easy walking distance to the French Quarter. We rented bikes and took day trips to Algiers, City Park, the Garden District and more. There was jazz in the Louis Armstrong Park on Thursdays & Saturdays....a very short walk.

Dave, our host, provided us with great suggestions for exploring the city and the restaurants. He was very prompt responding to my text messages and his assistant, who we met on arrival, was very friendly and helpful. Dave also provided a great recommendation for getting to & from the airport.

We relaxed & read on the private catwalk - and just before we left, a new deck was installed under the big tree in the backyard - another great outdoor place on the property.

We fell in love with the city and would definitely stay at the tree house again, in a heartbeat!

Great location, perfect size, nice deck/backyard area to hang out

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was absolutely perfect. If I were to live in New Orleans, that might be the area to be. We saw so much live music, danced, ate delicious food, walked all over the city, and even fit in church at Zion Hill right around the corner (which we found recommended in a Frommer's guide: The Best Authentic Experiences in New Orleans | Frommer's )(note-it is a little awkward, but they were very kind and inviting). I was so exhausted by the end I think I'm only now feeling fully recovered.
We left a camping chair there for your future guests; we found it was crucial for Jazz Fest.

This was by far my best vacation ever. Everything came together just perfectly. Now back to my diet. =)

Jazzfest home base

  • 4 of 5
Myself, my husband and two friends were fortunate to find this place for our week of in New Orleans for jazzfest. We didn't want to stay in a hotel as we wanted to option to cook, sit in a yard and relax. This place was great. Very nicely remodeled and modern. Super spacious with high ceilings. Having a washer/dryer in the unit was nice too. Walking distance to Frenchman's street, French quarter and Bywater. Tons of nearby restaurants and bars. Short cab ride to fairgrounds for jazzfest. The only aspect that wasn't great was that it was located on the edge of 7th ward, which is a little sketchy. Really only had to through a bad area once to get groceries. However we never felt unsafe. Everyone in the neighborhood was friendly. I would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: The issue of the grocery store is something I'm torn about. Since we opened I have always warned people not to head into the Seventh Ward. HOWEVER, in the past 2 months the oldest grocery store in New Orleans reopened for the first time since Katrina. The supermarket isn't open later than 7p, and while the path to and from are absolutely safe esp during the day, there are some houses that never came back after Katrina and i could see where it would make guests wary. It is the only real supermarket and guests LOVE the experience. So I figure the pros outweigh the cons, but in future I'm going to do a better job of communicating that to guests because the area is ridiculously safe all around here and in the directions most guests will head (riverside Marigny and French Quarter).

Great space... walking distance to the quarter and to the fest!

  • 5 of 5
We shared this space with another couple. It was a little cozy, but perfect for what we were looking for. The space was really nice and well kept. Very modern. Really, no problems at all. We will definitely rent again. Definitely. The owners were a breeze to deal with and we had a wonderful experience. Don't hesitate to rent any unit in this house. You can walk easily to the quarter... and even to jazz fest. We parked on the street and it was easy peasy. However, some of the neighboring units rented bikes and were super happy doing that too.

Beautiful home just a few blocks away from Marigny and Frenchman street.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the annual French Quarter Festival. The home was even more beautiful than the pictures showed and the pictures look great. They were very accommodating with anything we needed including advice about the area and even allowing us to drop off our luggage before our check in time. The house has a nice backyard to relax in the sun or bbq. We stayed in the two bedroom which easily handled our party of 5. I love the city and the French Quarter is close as well. Port of call is a great restaurant close by and is very well know for its burgers, baked potatoes, and steaks. Try a monsoon, they're much better than hurricanes. Stick to one though, ,they're powerful.

Esplanade Ridge 2 Bedroom Apt

  • 4 of 5
We had a very pleasant stay here. It was close enough to the Quarter that everything was within walking distance. Bedrooms very spacious...living area could use more chairs...no soap, shampoo or hairdryer so bring your own amenities. All in all, it was a nice stay.

Owner's Response: I apologize for any guest that hasn't had a superlative experience. Guests are told to notify me within 24 hours if anything is amiss, and I didn't hear about any of these things until after checkout, tho we did speak during the booking. The blow dryer was found by housekeeping after checkout, so I'm not sure as to why it wasn't found or why it was never mentioned. As far as soap and shampoos it is not standard for vacation rentals due to state health code, but a fair enough request and miniatures is a simple enough suggestion. Anything that would have been communicated would have been dealt with. I would worry the apt would seem cluttered if it had any more chairs, or where we would put them. Our major change has been a mandatory security deposit, because guests were just making off with the strangest things. But taking all things into consideration, we have only been running a few months and are still reacting to differing and oft times conflicting requests to see what makes the most people happy. This is our first non-five star review so I think we're doing quite well.
