French Quarter Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Private 2 Level 1 Bedroom House, Perfect Location

Impeccably restored, utterly charming & very private two story historic guest house offers spacious bedroom with king sized bed, flat screen TV, & French doors opening to balcony. The bath is modern & pristine with tub and shower. First floor living space offers a comfortable sofa, flat screen TV, antique bar with small fridge, microwave & coffeemaker. Outside your doors awaits a lovely private landscaped patio offering a quiet place to plan the next day's activities and review photos of today's escapades!

We welcome you to one of the loveliest blocks of the French Quarter - the guest house is located right behind our home. There's plenty of celebrity watching nearby if that intriques you - and you are just blocks from world class restaurants and great jazz clubs. Harrah's Casino, the Super Dome, the New Orleans Arena, the Aquarium, Mississippi Riverboats - all await you. Antiques shopping, visits to art galleries and museums can fill your days. It's a quick cab or Uber ride to the New Orleans Museum of Art and the world-class Besthoff Sculpture Garden. We look forward to making this a perfect French Quarter vacation of your dreams!

The Vieux Carre' Commission was so impressed that they awarded and plaqued the property for 'Outstanding achievement in the field of historic restoration'! You are in for the best of both worlds - the feel of historic New Orleans with contemporary comfort.

Check in is at 3:00 p.m., checkout is 11:00 a.m.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

There are MANY VRBO's in the Quarter - - we selected this one primarily due to the pictures and location. It was perfect! Everything you read in other reviews is 100% accurate: very private, separate entrance, safe, and close to everything!

I will definitely stay again...very romantic, clean, and absolutely wonderful!

Agree on the other praises you will read. Close to all the things to see. Within a four or five block walk. Was nice to walk back to a "neighborhood" feeling from all the rest of the French Quarter to the west. The side entrance is very nice and private. You can come and go as you wish. Had a wonderful time.

Beautiful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this guest house. It is clean and very elegant. Wonderful bed and bathroom. Great A/C which is imperative in New Orleans! The house is located at a quiet end of the French Quarter so you can get away from the crazy when you've had enough. The owners were very gracious and kind as well. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who is at all discriminating. You'll be very pleased.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words - we loved having you and hope that you'll come back some day. We especially thank you for your patience while that plumbing issue was being repaired - you couldn't have been nicer! Evelyn & Gunter

All of the praise you read in the reviews are spot on. Pictures are great, but in person, even better! It was very private and quiet, yet close to all the action. Have stayed in other VRBOs in the last several years and none have ever been quite this elegant and included amenities not always provided or even thought of. Evelyn and Gunter are the best! Thank you for sharing with us!!

There is a private entrance to this guest house from the street. It's a very quiet home, yet just blocks in any direction to all the action and fun that represents the French Quarter of New Orleans! A local 'corner market' called Verti Mart is steps away for any beverages and snacks you might want, even good wines! It's cash only (there's an ATM inside), and if you go toward the back - you'll see the extensive menu. Open almost 24 hours.
