Lower Garden District Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Uptown/Irish channel home for up to18 near the heart of Magazine St

This Historic Creole Cottage was built in the 1840s and possesses all the unique charm of old New Orleans. Let’s visualize your arrival curbside to a brick-paved wooden cottage surrounded by wrought-iron fencing and adorned with large shuttered windows, red doors and a breezy porch. The scene is great for an outdoor snowball/po-boy picnic or cool cocktail prior to walking to the nearby art/antiques boutiques two blocks away on Magazine Street. Imagine the smell of barbecue from the smokehouse only a block away and crepe myrtle flower petals blowing in the breeze( a Garden District classic). Let’s enter the red door and experience a charming French provincial living space with modern amenities. The black granite countertop has stainless steel backsplash and is equipped with toaster, coffee maker, pastry/bagels and microwave. There is a seated dining area for 6. The table is covered with place settings and a centerpiece. The fridge is stocked with water and wine per your order. You feel at home. Now you can head upstairs to the loft or walk through the kitchen into a hallway.

Upstairs there are 3 beds (2 twins and 1 queen) in a 19 ft by 12 ft area. There is a television within an armoire and a closet. 2 seating areas are available as well. Upstairs is carpeted with a window for natural lighting.

If you remain downstairs there is a short hallway which leads pass a full immaculate bathroom and another private bedroom with a full bed and bench seating and finally ending in the office pallor. This multi-purpose office pallor has a roll top desk, a television, a laundry closet and large couch to lounge on. This is a great scene for kids to watch television as they wait to attend the zoo, aquarium or a parade which are minutes away.

After walking through the office pallor, you will want to lounge but the master suite awaits as you sashay through. The master suite has a bathroom and separate study area that can double as an additional room by closing the pocket doors. The bedroom has a queen bed and the study has the television with a sofa sleeper and a daybed that sleeps 2 each. There is also a double mirrored closeted hallway leading to master bathroom.

If requested it is ok to the keep walking to additional space through the back master suite which loops into a connected mirror image open space with extra bathroom, extra television den with sofa sleeper, extra kitchen space, extra dining space, extra loft with 4 more twin beds and extra private room. Ask for unrestricted access to this space to expand living quarters from a 1500 sf to total 3000 sf.

All furniture is elegant and antique and all bedding is cleaned, fresh and 400+ thread-count. There is central air, cable TV and wi-fi and security locks at the gates. You will enjoy this home so much, that you may not leave and enjoy a night on the town at the casino, Frenchmen Wharf’s live jazz and bourbon street (all 5 minutes away). Please come and enjoy our brand of hospitality and experience world renown entertainment, restaurant cuisine, tours, architecture and music. Lassiez Bons Temps Rouler!

Airport and convention transport available per request. Catered meals available per request. Additional space available per request to sleep 6 more individuals (by doubling the space) at an additional cost. Contact owner for special requests.

About Mia

We are local couple who grew up in the area and met as children. We were in graduate school during the Hurricane Katrina and engaged. We had a Katrina wedding in another state and returned home in 2006. It has been a great experience to live and grow in New Orleans and we are raising our family here. After traveling various places in the world we have heard and experienced the uniqueness of our own city. We would like to share that experience with you.

Mia purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Mia chose Central City/Garden District

This property exudes what we feel "real" New Orleans charm is. We both grew up in shotgun-styled homes and we decided to put a modern twist on this one. We allow you to rent per group size. We ensure privacy and keyless entry. We are very flexible to ensure your stay is enjoyable.

What makes this cottage unique

The home itself is unique. How many modern homes can boast true new Orleans flavor from the 1800s with such beauty and elegance and antiquity. We aren't done either. Keep visiting because we plan to grow greater every year. Merci Beaucoup.

Airport and convention transportation services available per request and availability. Professionally catered meals available per request and availability. Sleeps small and sleeps big groups! Contact owner for special requests.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Lala's cottage! We were a group of 11 all in our 20s that came down for Halloween. There were some complimentary bagels, coffe, milk, and cereal. There was one small issue with the shower and Mia was very accommodating and had it fixed right away. House is well kept and very clean. We only rented one side which had 3 bed rooms and 2 full bathrooms. Our group of friends are very close so it worked great! Also of note, the house is only 2 blocks away from magazine street (great for food and shopping) and a few more blocks to the trolley car that can take you right to canal and burbon!

We loved our stay at LaLa's! The house was perfect for our large group of 16 and was the perfect place to unwind after a day in New Orleans. Mia provided us with breakfast items and was quick to respond to the couple small issues we had. We will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips to New Orleans.
