New Orleans House Rental Photos and Description
1880's Creole Cottage. Dbl 'Shotgun' 1 br/1 bath each side. Just updated in 2014
If you Love Music this is the place for you !!
The Marigny neighborhood is adjacent to the French Quarter and is home to Frenchmen Street, famous for its numerous clubs and bars.
You will find upscale nightclubs, small music venues and gritty hole in the wall bars that feature a wide variety of local live music nightly. The Spotted Cat, d.b.a., Café Negril, Apple Barrel, Checkpoint Charlie, Maison, Snug Harbor and The Three Muses are all just a couple of minutes from your front porch. You will have no excuse for not enjoying the abundance of music that will be just steps from your door.
Thursday through Sunday nights you can pop in to the Frenchmen Art Market around the corner where local artists show and sell their unique productions.
When you want to get a little wild you are only a 10 minute walk to the craziness that is known as Bourbon St.
We are just 2 blocks from The French Quarter. You can easily walk to The French Market, Café Du Mond, Jackson Square, Armstrong Park etc. You can conveniently catch the streetcar to The Garden District , City Park, Audubon Zoo, Magazine St and other points of interest.
The house is a double 'shotgun'. Each side of this double has 1 bedroom and 1 bath and it's own private entrance. They can be rented separately or you can rent both sides for larger parties (if available) Maximum 6 persons. 3 per side. Prices are for 1 side only.
This is a 'shotgun' house. Meaning you must go from 1 room to get to the next. There are no hallways. All rooms have 13 ft ceilings. The floorings include recently refinished hardwood floors and slate as well as area rugs.
The first room is the 'living room'. Furnishings include: writing table, 42 inch tv with cable, convertible couch that easily folds into a bed (linens included). Original art by myself and my father.
Original 10 ft. pocket doors lead to the bedroom. Antique and vintage furniture complement the king size bed with fresh and clean linen.
The large kitchen features new appliances, dishwasher, microwave and a dining table with 4 chairs. There is a gas range.
The last room is the bathroom. Large tiled shower. Stocked with an ample supply of clean towels.
Being so close to the reveling on Frenchmen Street, at times it can get a little noisy. Particularly during festivals. There is a 'pick-up' brass band that jams most every night on the corner down the street. They usually knock off before 10pm. They are really good and I find myself pulling a chair out on the front porch, making a cocktail and enjoying the sounds. Just saying, It's not crazy all night or every night but If you are seeking a tranquil and peaceful vacation this might not be the spot for you.
On the other hand if you came down to enjoy the Music, Food and Art scene this is definitely the place to be.

My name is William and I am happily married to my beautiful and talented wife Ying. We have been married 3 years. I manage property in San Francisco and build furniture when I find the time. My wife is a Chef. She was born and raised in Brooklyn and has been living in California for the past 20 years.
When we decided to pursue our dream of having a 2nd home in NOLA we flew in from San Francisco every couple of months for a few days at a time. We stayed in different areas (French Quarter, Garden District, Irish Channel etc) We fell in love with the Marigny. The reason we love New Orleans is the music and the food and the fun. So we figured let's be in the middle of it. And we are. There is so much to enjoy within walking distance.
