Overview

Downtown Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

***Please note that the quote indicated by VRBO/HomeAway includes their newly implemented "service fee" for travelers. If you choose to book directly through us, you can avoid any service fees.***

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*

*parade routes sometimes change.
