There are 12 foot ceilings draped in full length fleur de lis embroidered drapery. The sofa opens into a queen size sofa bed. The television is a 43inch plasma with cable channels.

Relax and watch television on a lazy morning before strolling down to the coffee house for breakfast.

The backyard has just been landscaped and is a nice place to relax and enjoy the morning sun and shade in the afternoon. It is a beautiful place to relax and grill after a long day.

We hope you enjoy our cottage and our home town as much as we do. When you love New Orleans, it loves you back and makes you feel like you are home.

About Charlie and Anne Singer

My wife and I purchased the cottage in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina flooded our home with 11.9 feet of water. After the Hurricane we moved 3 times in a little over a year. At that time we had not started rebuilding our home in Lakeview and decided that we needed a home to call our own knowing that the rebuilding would be long and tedious due to the lack of available contractors. Anne always dreamed of owning a Creole Cottage and even visualized this Cottage in her dreams. She road the neighborhood for weeks on end looking for the Cottage and one lucky day, there it was. She called me at work so excited she could hard contain herself and the rest is history. We were fortunate enough to purchase the Cottage and moved in in early 2006. We enjoyed living in the neighborhood for over two years until moving back home in 2008. We had a lovely friend in graduate school who treasured the Cottage live there until she completed her Ph.D. and relocated. So now we are ready to share this jewel of Esplanade Ridge with visitors from all over the world.

Why Charlie and Anne Singer chose New Orleans

I spent the first 24 years of my life in this neighborhood until my wife and I married. We both dreamed of owning a cottage in this neighborhood and, for me, it was like coming home. This neighborhood and cottage is something you have to experience. It is a slice of heaven and we hope that you feel the same way about our Cottage and the neighborhood.

Cozy!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house! We had a hard time at first working those shower knobs but other than that, we enjoyed our stay! The neighbors were really nice as well.

It was okay

  • 3 of 5

The location was great. It was close to street cars and the city park. We had to ask how to get to the street cars that were only two blocks away. Depending on who was asked they were either to the directions or provided directions to how to get to bourdon street and catch the street cars from there. The previous guest left the linen in the dryer, therefore it appeared it was only 2 clean towels, which we discovered there were more in the dryer when we went to dry the two towels that we used. The grass appeared to need trimming in the front and back and the neighbor behind the cottage, cat came to the back door every day which seem to want to be fed. The Cottage was clean and well stocked. The neighborhood was well kept, the grocery store was great and the local resturants food was decent. The neighborhood was very quiet during our 4 days stay.

We had an extremely positive experience at the Sangers cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is located in a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to public transportation, a small market and a few restaurants.

The space is clean and comfortable with all the amenities for an extended stay.

We were very pleased with owners fast response to our emails and their flexibility with our extra requests.

If we ever decide to return for a visit to New Orleans this will be the first place we will seek out to reserve.

Lovely cottage in a cool neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We have loved our stay in Anne and Charlies cottage, and the surrounding neighbourhood. Staying here you get the feel of the real New Orleans and its spirit, rather than staying in town in a big hotel. Just round the corner you have a supermarket that has anything you could need, and several restaurants and even a wine bar. Do try them - we ate at Lola's and Santa Fe, and had drinks in swirls wine bar.

The cottage is a lovely size for two, and has all that you need if you decide to eat at 'home'. The garden is a nice sunny spot to chill out after a day in town.

Have to say that the bed is one of the comfiest - and best nights sleep I've had on this trip!

We used the bikes a couple of times, and to be honest it's a quicker way of getting to town. A 10-15 minute ride straight down Esplande brings you right out at the Old US Mint, and near French Market. There are bike racks in the area to safely lock up. You can also get the tram by taking a short walk up to City Park, then getting the tram outside. However, this did take about 40 mins to get to town.

Also have a trip to City Park and the Art Museum. Lovely park and facilities.

Thanks guys, we've loved our stay. 😃

Located in the Heart of New Orleans, our Cottage is centrally located and just steps off Historic Esplanade Avenue. Our neighborhood is safe and within walking distance of the New Orleans Museum of Art in City Park, the Fairgrounds (Jazz Fest and horse racing), and 2 miles from the French Quarter. The neighborhood is a colorful gem and one of the most desirable areas of New Orleans.

We enjoy strolling to dinner or to have cocktails at Cafe Degas, Lola's, Nonna Mia, Liuzza's By the Track, or Santa Fe. You'll notice lots of locals enjoying our Alcee Fortier neighborhood park relaxing and enjoying the weather or maybe playing checkers! Around the corner you will find everything you need - all locally owned grocery stores, a wine store, spa, book store, and coffee shops.

From our cottage, there is no need to rent a car to explore New Orleans. Walk less then one block to catch the Esplanade Avenue/French Quarter bus into the French Quarter or enjoy the 5-block watch down Esplanade Avenue to City Park to catch the streetcar.

Getting around New Orleans by streetcar is a great way to see the city. Walk from the cottage to catch the street car in front of the majestic New Orleans Museum of Art. Streetcars in New Orleans offer and can be paid with exact change when you board. 1, 3, and 31-day unlimited ride Jazzy Passes are also available. The streetcar symbolizes the charm and romance of the City of New Orleans. This streetcar will take you along the scenic route to the CBD and the French Quarter/Aquarium of the Americas.You can then connect to streetcar lines to Uptown New Orleans, Tulane University and the Audubon Zoo. Or transfer to the streetcar that runs along the Mississippi River through the French Quarter. See the Quarter, the St. Louis Cathedral, Cafe du Monde, Jackson Square, and the French Market.

One of the most beautiful and enjoyable areas of New Orleans is City Park. Devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the 1300 Acre New Orleans City Park has been completely restored and expanded. City Park attractions: The New Orleans Museum of Art, Botanical Garden, Sculpture Garden, Boat and Bike Rentals, Tennis Center, Fishing, Picnic Shelters and very soon Miniature Golf! You can even enjoy Beignets and Cafe au Lait at Morning Call in the Park.

Visit their website for details.

Keep your walking shoes on and visit the Audubon Nature Institute's Audubon Zoo (my grandsons love the Cool Zoo sprinklers and water features), Aquarium of the Americas, Insectarium, IMAX Theatre, and the Audubon Park and Golf Course. More info at www.auduboninstitute.org.

Don't miss a visit to The National World War II Museum. The museum presents the American experience during the WWII era with moving personal stories, historic artifacts and powerful interactive displays. Visitors to the museum are encouraged to allocate roughly 2½ to 3 hours to tour the museum. An award-winning 4-D film, Beyond All Boundaries, is an overview of the war on every front. A variety of other multimedia displays are part of the museum's exhibits, notably dozens of video oral histories conducted with veterans by museum staff. The museum includes two restaurants, the American Sector and the Soda Shop, both operated by noted chef John Besh. www.nationalww2museum.org

And then there is....The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival! Imagine leisurely walking two blocks to the entrance to Jazz Fest! No hassles with traffic, parking...pure heaven. After an exciting day at the Fest, walk over to Liuzza's By The Track to continue partying or to one of the restaurants to carry on with the incredible food and beverages. Nothing beats this....HEAVENLY
