About the property

Stay in a home as unique as the city itself in the heart of the historic Marigny

Just a few short blocks from the French Quarter, we discovered an abandoned antebellum Creole Cottage, left in total ruin, on the verge of collapse. It was love at first sight.

We spent two years meticulously reimagining and rebuilding the home. The design respects the cottage's architectural history, both in scale and materials, while introducing a modern, minimal aesthetic with an appreciation for the patina that time brings.

We came to New Orleans on vacation and never left. Perhaps you will, too.


Marigny 9 is right in the middle of everything:

• 6 short blocks from the French Quarter

• 7 quick blocks from the Bywater

• 2 blocks from Frenchmen Street

• 2 blocks from a 24 hour taxi stand

• 6 quick blocks to the streetcar

Right next to the Quarter, is the thriving Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, a live-music destination with a pocket subculture unto itself. Over the past decade, the Marigny has emerged as one of the vital centers of the city. The Marigny hosts some of the best bars and nightspots in New Orleans, along Frenchmen Street, the neighborhood's main drag.

Just downriver is the Bywater, a birthing ground for some of the most inventive new restaurants in New Orleans.

We are also on the parade route for P'Tit Rex (shoe box floats) and just 2 blocks from many of the city's most eccentric parades: Krewe du Vieux, Delusion, Chewbacchus, and Saint Anne Parades*

Great location with comfort

  • 5 of 5

Marigny is the place to be! This rental is as advertised, clean spacious and well appointed. In a quiet area yet within 15min walk to most destination spots in any direction. I walked 8min to delicious St. Roch market and food coop located in the Healing Center. Studio Be is just a 14min walk. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. We were offered some local produce, milk and artisanal bread. Was very impressed with the overhead rain shower ( I’m a total shower snob and adult enough to admit it!). Thank you again for the late checkout! Would certainly stay here again and will happily mention this rental to my friends who also share a love for Nola and it’s wonders.

Great weekend in NOLA!

  • 5 of 5

First off this property is GREAT! Charming exterior and neighborhood and chic interior. We were a bit nervous about how far this place appeared from the French Quarter on the map, but it was in a great location. Literally a 5 to 7 minute walk to Frenchman Street or 10 minutes to Bourbon St. This allowed us to get some walking in, see the beautiful houses on Esplanade and enjoy the livlieness of Bourbon for as long as we wanted. When we were ready for piece and quiet it was still within walking distance away!

Hidden Gem in a perfect New Orleans neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The owners were incredibly responsive and made booking and checking in a breeze. The place is well-appointed, with thoughtful gestures like cold water in the fridge, fresh milk, plenty of towels, etc. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to explore New Orleans' best neighborhoods. Another VERY important feature: proper air conditioning! It gets HOT here...nothing better than walking into a cool bedroom.

Would definitely recommend staying here and would book again without any hesitation.
