Overview

Bywater House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the Historic Marigny neighborhood! A REAL DEAL New Orleans experience! Area has a nice European feel to it...We are 10 blks to the French Quarter, and without all the noise and expensive parking-- all you need within walking distance-- 2 blocks to a huge 24 hour grocery, only 8 blocks to famous 'Frenchmen St'. (has great restaurants/live music), there are 15 restaurants and coffee shops all within a few blocks of this home. My favorite is a vintage junk shop--i always find treasures every time i go--just 3 blocks away......

This building is a Creole corner store built in 1830. It's an incredible open space-1650 square ft--plenty of room to hang out and enjoy!! The living/kitchen/dining is all open. It used to be a cafe years ago. Has 12 foot ceilings in living area, exposed brick walls, a tropical courtyard-- Has charcoal grill. This is the whole downstairs, 1650 square feet + courtyard, 2 bedrooms with a KING bed in 1 bedroom + queen bed in 2nd bedroom. We have a queen mattress for living room-- 3 beds, sleeps 6 total. I only allow 6 since it only has 1 bathroom.

I also have 1 unit upstairs available with a HUGE balcony #208257, and a studio next door #504978 if you have 2-4 extra people. These can be rented simultaneously if you have a large group- 16 people maximum This is a residential area, so WE CANT ALLOW BACHELOR PARTIES OR PEOPLE UNDER 25 TO STAY HERE, sorry. AND IF YOU ARE A LOUD GROUP- YOU MAY WANT TO TRY ANOTHER HOME- we are strict about 10pm noise rule.

Across the street is a beautiful 200 yr old church building. The neighbors are friendly; you won't want to leave!!

Home has all you need-- 'full kitchen'/all new linens/towels. I got so many customers from my other unit, so I had to expand........See my other listings if this isn't what you are looking for vrbo #208257, #445937, 432616 or #432617 or #476331, #607462

ENJOY!!! If this unit is full, the other one might be available!! Its best to email me for questions or to book.

Parking is Free on the street, but you always get a spot next to the house, and there are no meters to pay. yea!!

Recommendation-- rent or bring bicycles!! THE best way to see the City!!!

About Heather McIntosh

I own a vacation rental business called Carries Cool Properties, and i just love it here. I have loved New Orleans for over 20 yrs, and am happy to have a business here to stimulate the economy and rebuild this amazing city I care about so much. I live here- just 5 minutes away if you need anything.

Heather McIntosh purchased this house in 2008

Why Heather McIntosh chose Downtown

The Marigny is a historical area just 10 blocks to the French Quarter. It has a nice European feel to it.....Only 8 blocks to Frenchmen St. (my favorite area for dinner/live music). This area has all kinds of fun restaurants, coffee shops, vintage shops, bars, huge grocery--ALL within walking distance!

What makes this house unique

Nice courtyard with bamboo. building has 14 ft ceilings--a nice open feel to the place, along with lots of windows.......walk or ride a bike to everything you need! LOCATION, LOCATION

Great NOLA house with perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls' trip to NOLA and stayed at this great house. Plenty of room especially the kitchen/den area. We were celebrating two birthdays so the open design made it great for making drinks and decorating the table with cake and snacks. The property owners were easy to work with and very helpful. Uber & Lyft were the perfect option for getting rides to and from wherever we wanted to go. We even walked to a quaint restaurant down the street called The Franklin for oysters and martinis! We would definitely stay here again!

Loved the space and the neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Two of us girls drove in from Houston and another flew from Austin and got there before us. She sent this text as soon as she opened the front door - "this place is awesome!!" Loved the funky decor, the great shower, the comfortable couches, everything. Really loved seeing neighbors walking around with dogs and kids. A real sense of community. Will rent again.

KEWL Property

  • 5 of 5

KEWL property, great location--we walked several times to clubs, Be aware if you are sharing unit with another couple ... One bathroom with bedrooms on each side with great big doors on sliders--you will hear someone getting up and going to the bathroom... We solved this by keeping bedroom doors shut(their sliding was not as noisy) and if someone went to bathroom and their bedroom door was open--wait your turn. Less noisy. You will hear the train, but was not bothersome to us. Property manager was AWESOME... Really appreciated the lil bathroom extras. We'd definitely come back ; )

Delightful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this funky Marigny/Bywater loft! There was plenty of space for the four of us. One point that wasn't made in the description is that you have to cut through one room to get to the other (unless you go outside to the courtyard and then inside again). Definitely didn't bother us, since we were family.

The neighborhood was very walkable with great restaurants and bars nearby. We basically made a daily pilgrimage to the Mardi Gras Zone grocery store, which had a ton of necessities and fun stuff alike. While you are about a 30 minute walk to the french quarter, you can make a pit stop and hear some jazz on Frenchman street on the way.

We would definitely stay here again!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 Parents, 2 sons and 1 son's girlfriend) came for Christmas and New Years. The location is great - walking distance to French Quarter and Frechman Street. The common area was really terrific - great place to relax. One warning - you have to walk through one bedroom to get to the bathroom or other bedroom - so you need to be comfortable enough with each other to do that. Neighborhood is quiet It really was a perfect fit for us - close enough to the fun stuff but a relaxing respite at the end of the day. We would most definitely stay here again.
