Vacation Home: Perfect for Seniors, Pets, Families & Physically Challenged
Genene and David Cote
About Genene and David Cote
David is a writer and I am a fitness and nutrition coach. We retired to New Orleans 6 years ago. We bought our property and have been continually improving it. After 6 years of living in a construction zone, we are FINALLY about to be able to landscape the yard! We are big blues fans (good reason to live in NOLA), avid readers and animal lovers. We love good food (another reason to live here) and both love to cook, eat and sample new foods. Genene specializes in plant-based menus and cooking. David is the omnivore grill-meister.
Genene and David Cote purchased this Guest House in 2012
Why Genene and David Cote chose Desire Area
Bring your pets and kids to this family-friendly, disability equipped private space. The enclosed patio adds space and privacy. The Casita is quiet but close to everywhere you want to go! Our neighborhood in Gentilly, the Indian Village, is a very safe, quiet and established neighborhood. We have a strong community watch and the best neighbors ever! This is an old neighborhood with lots of trees, birds and friendly, helpful people. The Baptist Theological Seminary is across the street and Winn-Dixie, WalMart, Walgreens and the famous Gentilly Spicy Kitchen are within walking distance. It is a short drive to Rouses, Whole Foods and all the dining and entertainment in Mid-City, the Bywater, the Marigny and the French Quarter.
What makes this Guest House unique
We love kids and pets! The Casita is wheel-chair accessible, with grab bars and plenty of space. We like to say that we are 10 minutes from everywhere -- right off I10 and I610. Many guest have a car and can get to the French Quarter, the Central Business District (CBD), City Park and Lake Pontchartrain in minutes. Uber and Lyft are always available. Many of our guests skip car rentals all together. And some with cars, still use Uber or Lyft for a night on the town. For guests without a car or who wish to use public transportation, we are one block from the RTA bus line - about 20 minutes to the French Quarter. Walmart supercenter and Walgreens are both 2 blocks away making it easy to replace items you forgot or lay in a few supplies.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Our Staycation in Gentilly
Needed a place to stay for a few days with elderly mom and two cats. Was lucky enough to find Casita Cote, which suited our needs perfectly. Genene and David were friendly, gracious, and accommodating. Recommend this little hideaway with lovely little coffeehouse nearby. Thanks for a great stay!
Very nice place!!!
A very nice place to stay. The owners are top notch people and extremely helpful if needed. They respond quickly to any needs or questions. It is a little ways from the French Quarter but public transportation is nearby, easier and cheaper than driving to the city and parking. Highly recommend this and would love to go back there for another visit.
Big Easy Retreat
Stayed in a secluded, quiet, cozy bungalow that more than exceeded our expectations. Our hosts made sure we had everything we needed and then some. It’s a little had to find initially because it’s tucked away in the neighborhood but it’s very convenient to downtown. All in all we had a great stay.
Very clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed for our stay.
We will definitely be visiting again in the future!
Thank you! for visiting and your review.
You are always welcome here and we recommend you to other hosts.
Fully stocked and furnished apartment!
We booked this apartment for an event at UNO Lakefront Arena and were merely minutes away. It was so awesome that we could bring our pet and save money on having to board him. The apartment is perfect and comes fully stocked w everything you could need! Full washer and dryer a huge plus! It was a short drive to the french quarter, there is a walmart nearby, and we couldn’t have asked for more convenience. Thank you guys so much!
Enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect. Everything you could want and more. Close to everything with a short drive. Quiet and peaceful. Everything I hoped and more.
We enjoyed hosting you.
