IMPECCABLY RENOVATED LUXURY COTTAGE WITH COURTYARD & JACUZZI

New Orleans Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

**Note-We do NOT advertise on Craigslist***

The Marigny Cottage was recently featured on a Disney network TV show called 'Sweet Retreats' which profiles luxury vacation rentals, and the show's hosts chose the Cottage for their vacation! http://livewellnetwork.com/Sweet-Retreats/episodes/Cutting-Edge-Cottage-for-Rent-in-New-Orleans-Louisiana/9072101

The Marigny Cottage is a classic Eastlake Victorian townhouse that was constructed in the early 20th century in New Orleans' Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, which is adjacent to and within walking distance of the French Quarter. The Cottage has recently undergone a major renovation that brings out the charm of an early 20th century residence, updated with all of the modern amenities. The owner recently purchased the Cottage so all furnishings are brand new!

The Cottage, which offers almost 1,500 square feet of living area, has 2 private bedrooms (each with a queen bed) and 1.5 baths, a large formal dining room, a living room, and a spacious eat-in kitchen that opens onto a private courtyard with a Jacuzzi, gas grill and outdoor furniture. The Cottage has 12-foot ceilings, polished hardwood floors, 3 decorative fireplaces and large windows throughout which give the home a light, airy feel. The Cottage has central heating and cooling, and most rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan that takes the edge off of those days when the mercury is running high.

Guests enter the home through a formal entryway characteristic of traditional sidehall cottages. Adjacent to the entryway is a formal dining room featuring an exposed brick fireplace with a decorative mantle and two floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the room in sunlight. This room is furnished with a large farmhouse dining table that seats up to six people and is perfect for those evenings when you just want to order in or have our house manager Sidney prepare you a feast in our fabulous kitchen.

The spacious, light-filled living room has an exposed brick decorative fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa, a loveseat, coffee tables and a lounge chair. The living room also features a 40-inch flat screen HDTV, along with a DVD/CD player and an iPod dock. Wireless high speed internet is available throughout the Cottage.

When you are on vacation nothing is more important than getting a good night's rest. So, we have furnished each bedroom with a new, high-quality pillow top mattress, a down comforter, chenille throws and 600-thread count sheets that we guarantee will make it difficult to get out of bed each morning. Each bedroom has a closet, a dresser, nightstand, an iPod dock/alarm clock, plus the master bedroom has a 26-inch HDTV with DVD player. The master bedroom also has an exposed brick decorative fireplace.

The full bathroom is classic old New Orleans (but in a renovated way) with a pedestal sink and a clawfoot tub with a shower enclosure. The Cottage also has a renovated half-bathroom off of the living room and a large washer and dryer located in the kitchen area. Each bathroom is supplied with high-quality Egyptian cotton towels and bath sheets.

Our large, modern eat-in kitchen is delightfully bathed in sunlight with three sets of windows and a set of French doors that lead to the courtyard. Indeed, our kitchen is uncharacteristically large and airy for historic homes in the Marigny neighborhood. The kitchen features custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and is well-equipped with a complete supply of cookware, dishes and cutlery. Small appliances include a toaster oven, a microwave and a blender. We believe that coffee is one of life's great pleasures (and it's taken pretty seriously in NOLA), so we have provided our coffee-loving guests with three options for their morning brew - an espresso maker, a French press and a traditional coffee maker. After you have brewed your morning coffee, simply take a stroll through the French doors into the courtyard to sip your coffee and listen to the sounds of morning in N'Awlins, which might include the horn of a paddlewheeler making its way down the Mississippi a few blocks away!

And while you are in the courtyard, you might as well enjoy all of the amenities offered - soak in the Jacuzzi, throw some Louisiana shrimp on the grill or just relax on the outdoor furniture - the Cottage on Port is so comfortable that you might not want to leave!

Our local house managers - Merri and Sidney Roussell - are native New Orleanians who can be a resource to our guests during their stay. Sidney owns a catering business and is available to prepare in-home meals for our guests at their request. Sidney is also available by appointment to provide guests with black car service during their stay. Please inquire when booking the property.

We are native New Orleanians who currently live in both New orleans and New York. One of us is a writer and part-time designer, while the other is involved in commercial real estate and hospitality.

Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

We bought the Cottage because we were looking for a uniquely New Orleans home in a uniquely New Orleans neighborhood. As we work in New Orleans part-time, this place is our home when we are there.

After those New Orleans nights, which frequently run late, involve lots of food and a 'few' cocktails, I love to crawl into the super-comfortable beds and fall into a deep slumber. Also, evenings in the courtyard and Jacuzzi are great because you can sip on a glass of wine, fire up the grill and watch the sun set behind the church steeples in the distance.

GORGEOUS HOUSE IN GREAT WALKING NEIGHBORHOOD

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with friends for five nights in May and absolutely loved it. The house has so much character, and everything is in excellent condition (the kitchen is fantastic, and fully equipped with any appliance or tool you might need). We spent a LOT of time on the patio and in the hot tub.

A few of the reviews questioned the neighborhood, but we saw no reason to worry at all. We walked to and from the Quarter, Frenchmen Street, Marigny and Bywater at all hours of the day and night. It's a decent walk to the French Quarter, about a mile, but there are several ways to get there and they're all interesting. (You can also pick up a 3-day transit pass for a mere $9, and there are at least two bus stops nearby.) Our friends had a car for a couple days, and had no trouble finding parking out front on the street.

If you're looking to get away from the insanity of Bourbon Street while still being able to visit it any time you want, this is a great location. We will absolutely stay again next time we're in NOLA.

GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD FOR WALKING

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with my daughter, son-in-law and year old grandson. We were in town for my youngest daughter's wedding on Frenchmen St. (about 11 blocks away 15-20 min walk.) Very nice location within walking distance to French Market and Bourbon St. (15-20 min.) and many neighborhood restaurants, bars and co-op grocery. We walked day and night and felt very safe. The house was very clean, well maintained and equipped. Cooling A/C worked great. Great house for adults and children older than 7 or 8. (drawbacks: it is near train tracks and train horns blow at all hours of the day and night. This might bother light sleepers. The backyard and front porch are not toddler/small child friendly...the front porch has no railing and the backyard slab is cracked and broken.) Both areas are fine for adults wanting to get a breeze and equipped with table and chairs. We used United Taxi and White Taxi services.

GREAT COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Great, the best, fantastic, what more would you want. Hot tub was a great asset. Enjoyed coming home to a wonderful, peaceful, place. We were there for just four days and would love to go back for a longer visit. The cottage was so well furnished that the only thing we were missing was a cheese grater. So, I bought one an it ended up in my luggage, some how back home. Sorry Must do Elizabeth's restaurant, the best gumbo and food in the Quarter is the Old coffee pot restaurant, Louisiana bistro is another favorite we go to always, and if your going to be there on a Thursday check out Tracey's up in the Magazine st area. As you can tell we are foodies, but loved coming home to a great place. Highly suggest you give it a try

BESTIE'S 40TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

Bestie's 40th Birthday Celebration
  • 5 of 5
This house is incredible and we instantly loved it as soon as we stepped into the dining area from the foyer. It is well kept and fully equipped with all of your possible needs. The beds are so comfortable and that is saying a lot since I rarely sleep through the night when I am away from home. We all slept like babies. Also, we went to 4 of the nearby restaurants and cafes close by that were recommended by the owner and we couldn't have been happier. The food was fantastic at all of them. We went to Satsuma Cafe, Elizabeth's, The Joint & Killer Po'boys. We ate at many other places outside of those four because New Orleans is a city full of amazing food. The house was perfectly situated because it was close to all the major attractions. We mostly walked everywhere which was good because we ate a lot. LOL! We walked to through exploring the Bywater/Marigny neighborhood where we stayed to Frenchman street which has great music, bars, and food as well. We went over to the French Market, explored all of the French Quarter, and walked down past Canal Street. We did this daily. The only time we did not walk from the house was when we went to Magazine Street to do more shopping, eat at Dooky Chase's Restaurant, and to have brunch at Lil' Dizzy's but those place were a short, inexpensive cab ride away. Those places are also a must see and visit, too. We had blast on our short trip to NOLA and at the house although we did not use the beautiful kitchen except to make coffee. That was mainly because out of the four of us, two of us had never been to New Orleans, so we spent a lot of time out. We will definitely stay here again when we visit New Orleans and make it a longer trip. And before I end, please let me tell you that the people of New Orleans are some of the nicest people I have ever encountered. Everyone and I mean everyone said "Hello" and "Good Morning" when you passed them no matter what they or you were doing. That meant a lot to four girls from the city of Chicago. Be Well.

GREAT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
The house was recently remodeled and incredibly clean with a complete kitchen. The hot tub was fairly new and well maintained. It was such an added bonus since I ran the rock and roll 1/2 marathon while I was there. I loved the area and the street life and restaurants. I would try to stay at this property during future trips to N.O.

CHRISTMAS 2013 IN NOLA!

  • 5 of 5
We are four adults 60+, seasoned party animals. We had a great time. This is a cozy and spacious place for two couples. Put a kid or two on the sleeper sofa in the living room if you need to. The cottage has been recently updated and is in great shape. The location is great. It is a 10 block walk to Frenchman St. where the best music clubs are, and just a little further to the French Quarter. Several good restaurants and coffee shops are also a short walk away. A week before our arrival the owner emailed a nice "manual", with house instructions and local points of interest.

The kitchen is modern and well equipped. You can cook full meals at home. There is a good grocery store 4 blocks away. I recommend taking stock of what is in the pantry before shopping. Many non-perishable staples like condiments, cooking oils and cereals were there already, all with good "use by" dates. I sense that the caretaker closley manages the leftovers. I recommend the Rouse's grocery on Baronne if you're a foodie and have a car. We very much enjoyed taking a cooking class at Langlois, another easy walk.

We had a car because it was December and rainy, and we're old and can afford it. The weather also made the hot tub all the more enjoyable! You could stay here without a car in good weather. You can catch a couple major city bus lines right on the corner and/or a couple blocks away. Buy an unlimited 3 day city bus pass for $9 at the nearby Walgreens.

I would not advise anyone to walk alone late at night in any major city, but we felt safe walking here in a group. Local people smiled and said hello from their stoops and doorways. There is a mix of houses that need work, and many that have been fully restored. We always had a place to park right in front of the cottage.
