Three bedroom, one bath with comfortable living room and dine-in kitchen. Central air, wi-fi and Google Chromecast. Stay by yourself or bring your whole krewe. Make this your base of operations while you explore the most interesting city in America (in our humble opinion). Just a 15 minute walk to the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. In the heart of trendy Marigny neighborhood, try the nearby theaters, art galleries, restaurants and live music spots. On-street parking is plentiful on our block. Comfortable furniture and art throughout, two queen beds and one day bed, can sleep 3 to 5 people comfortably. No pets, please. Use our dishes, pots and pans, and cooking utensils. Organic supermarket is just a few blocks up, you can walk there.. A word about a 'shotgun' house if you've never seen one: long and narrow, this common house type can be found everywhere in New Orleans - inside, rooms just lead to other rooms. No space wasted with hallways. Hey, the Creoles knew what they were doing back in the day!
Suitable for families, reunions, boys nights out, couples, singles, vacationers

About James Cristina
This is our first house, which we remodeled ourselves in 2005, then again in 2014. But this time we had help picking out furniture and artwork! I think our designer Miss Dionne did a fabulous job, and I think you will too!
James Cristina purchased this House in 2005
Why James Cristina chose Faubourg Marigny
In the beating heart of Marigny/Bywater, plus free bikes to use! Comfortable and secure, we are on a quiet block in a nice neighborhood that still has the fun and the edge we love about New Orleans. Close to the coolest spots in the city, and you can also reach the Quarter by foot in 15 minutes, or even faster on one of our bikes.
What makes this House unique
The Marigny/Bywater neighborhoods are the coolest places in New Orleans that you've probably never heard of. Rent a bike from several nearby rental spots, you can fully spend two or three days exploring this neighborhood, even before exploring the French Quarter and Uptown. All the creature comforts will be waiting for you when you come back to your temporary new home, where you can rest comfortably in our new beds and even cook a few meals while you're not out exploring traditional or eclectic dining spots in our neighborhood. Or enjoy the night air while sitting out on the front stoop, and easily strike up a conversation with one of our friendly neighbors. One thing we like to do in New Orleans is talk, and we like to talk to everybody.
Wonderful home away from home...
This house was perfect for our little family. Plenty of room, comfy beds, and a full kitchen. It was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do during our trip, if you count using the street cars to get around for longer distances. There were a couple grocery options close by which helped for stocking the kitchen for those times when we wanted to eat in. We will definitely keep this place on the top of our list of places to stay in NOLA.
Pre-Mardi Gras Couples Getaway
Cute house--as you first walk in the door, you step into the living room, then the 1st queen bedroom, then the single twin, then the 2nd queen with a closet, then the kitchen, bathroom, and back door.
When you go out to Franklin St, you can almost see the water. The house was about 15-20 min walk to the French Market/Burbon St and about 10 min to Frenchman St. From Burbon, our cab ride was $8 at the end of one night.
Tom and his wife who own the place are very quick to respond and answer any questions or concerns. The house felt relatively safe in the neighborhood and they had an alarm pad that was easy to use. All the decor is for sale, presumably from local merchants which was neat. Going into the home we knew it was a shotgun so if you're wanting super privacy this might not be the place unless you are in the first bedroom. Our only issue was the plumbing in NOLA can be spotty and the toilet had some problems, but the owners said they would get on that ASAP. We would definitely come back, as the house was quite comfy and located in a relatively good location. Parking on the street was not a problem-- out car was never more than 50ft away from the house. An added bonus is that it is also on the 'tit Rex & Chewbacchus parade route, which we had no clue. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative and want to avoid a commercial hotel, this is your place to stay.
The Marigny is a real neighborhood, mix of new and old families, young hipsters and professionals, business people, artists and bohemians, free spirits. Don't be surprised if you strike up a conversation with locals everywhere you go, it's just our way down here. While you're staying here, walk to the coffee shops, health food store, voodoo store and resale shop, and art galleries on St. Claude. Rent bikes on Elysian Fields at 'A Bicycle Named Desire' or at Bicycle Michael's on Frenchmen St. Nearby bars offer live music like rock, jazz, brass band, DJ's, disco, and you can walk outside with your drink (ask the bartender for a 'go cup'), so go explore Marigny's nightlife: walk to bars like Mimi's, Hi-Ho Lounge, Kajun's Pub, Phoenix Bar, Mag's 940, Friendly Bar. And if you miss visiting Frenchmen street for Snug Harbor, Apple Barrel, Spotted Cat, d.b.a., Blue Nile, and The Maison, then I'm seriously making you come back! ;-) Down in the Bywater they got Vaughan's, and a bunch of other cool places but it's a longer walk. Head to Mariza's, Sugar Park, or Feelings Cafe for memorable dinners around here, these are places we eat at, away from the tourist spots.
