Superb Cottage at the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

There is a good reason that this property has a 5 star review - it deserves! This adorable spot is impeccably decorated. Not only is it beautiful everywhere you look, but the courtyard is ideal. You can hear the sounds of the music from Frenchman Street sitting in the courtyard, but inside at night we heard no music and slept well. Yes, there is a bar across the street, it is New Orleans, and we did enjoy the bar, so no problem. We highly recommend this wonderful spot!

Beautiful Cottage on Royal

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Cottage on Royal was wonderful. There were four of us staying, and we agreed the cottage was very clean with great amenities. We even used the sleeper sofa, and found that to be surprisingly comfortable. The cottage was well appointed with comfortable furnishings and attractive New Orleans decor. We enjoyed our down time in the courtyard (when it wasn't raining!). The location was perfect for forays into the Quarter or the Marigny, and the streetcar ride to the Garden District was convenient. I highly recommend the Cottage on Royal.

Perfect location with all of the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. It was far enough from the hot spots like Frenchman and Bourbon Street so you don't hear the craziness all night but it's just a short walk away. Also, I felt as if the owner really invested in high quality stuff. The sheets were super soft and comfortable, the art work around the house was very nice and representative of local art, and kitchen looked newly remodeled. Lastly, the place was super roomy! We loved everything about it and would definitely stay here again. The property managers were very friendly and accommodating. We had a later flight and he even offered for us to stay in his place to get away from the rain.

One word of caution though - you do hear street and bar noise. It did not bother us at all. Par for the course given the perfect location but something to keep in mind for those that are sensitive to street noise. We had a 2 year old and she slept through it all fine.

For those with kids, there were a few great parks within walking distance from the property so it was perfect for my daughter.

Just as good the second time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cottage and we loved it just as much as we did the first time. The location is so convenient to the French Quarter but it also encourages us to explore new areas outside the quarter. The property itself is beautiful and it is so nice to have the enclosed courtyard. I would stay here every time I visit New Orleans if I could.

Location Location Location... Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the cottage. It was convenient to Frenchmen street which is our favorite place to hang out in the city. The property was clean and perfect for sharing with another couple or for a family. It had all the charm that New Orleans has to offer. We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful home and courtyard.

  • 5 of 5

The gated courtyard is beautiful. Feels like your own little oasis in the center of it all. When we first opened the door, we couldn't believe how large the place is. Home away from home. The parking lot at market is well priced and easily accessible.
