West Riverside Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed, 1 Bath, sleeps 3

Enjoy the respite of Uptown New Orleans, a short walk from the Universities, Audubon Park, Audubon Zoo, Magazine Street, Whole Foods, and our finest restaurants, typically patronized only by locals.

Originally built as quarters adjacent to the larger caretaker's home, this residence has been meticulously renovated and upgraded with slate floors and a spa bath. The barge board construction, discovered during renovation and originally sourced from boats that navigated the MS River, is proudly on display.

The rare double lot on which the property resides allows for ample space - and pets - that includes a secluded brick courtyard and green area.

While there is not a full kitchen, amenities include satellite TV, microwave, coffeemaker, minifridge, and complimentary internet.

Access via private car or taxi. Magazine Street and Tchoupitoulas busses or St Charles streetcar line are within walking distance.

Pure New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

From the minute you walk through the honeysuckle draped iron gate, you realize you've found a little oasis in the city. The cottage is charming and provides the visitor with all your essential needs. The bathroom is recently renovated and well appointed. We truly enjoyed our stay at Haley's.

Homey uptown rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cathaus. We never saw the owner but felt comfortable.

Pros: very clean, nicely decorated, great shower, well-stocked with everything we needed, quiet neighborhood, cute courtyard with nice lighting, excellent price, easy parking.

Cons: cottage was a bit damp, AC unit had a bit of a smell, limited clothes storage, Wifi did not really work.

Overall, we liked the rental and would consider returning.

Perfect uptown getaway!

  • 5 of 5

"Cathaus" is in a lovely uptown neighborhood with a beautiful courtyard. Two blocks from Magazine, the Whole Foods, PJ's coffee, loads of restaurants. It's just a few blocks from Audubon Park. It's cozy, clean and quiet. We only saw the owner twice and he offered help if we needed anything. Lovely place- would definitely return.

Perfect little cottage, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a little getaway and it was just perfect for our needs. The place itself is adorable and the location is exactly what we wanted. Nice little courtyard to relax and drink a glass of wine, and plenty of room inside for the two of us to spread out. It's walking distance to Magazine St. and all the beautiful uptown residential streets, we love pretend-house-shopping. I will say that if you're not an animal-lover, this might not be a good fit, I am fine with animals, and had no problem with them enthusiastically greeting us upon each return, but it could be off-putting to some. I will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to NO.

Very comfortable, will return

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time here and like our first visit .....we loved it! Cozy but with everything we needed. And no parking fees like downtown. Love this part of New Orleans and as a former resident, I can say my favorite part of the city My only negative was that we were told not to give the 4 dogs they have dog biscuits!! We did the first trip but guess their tummies weren't up for it this time....maybe I gave too many:-)) Except for that we loved it !! Will return!!

Convenient and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House. It was within walking distance to several restaurants, shops and Whole Foods. We walked to Slice Pizza (very good), Toast and Cafe Luna for breakfasts (good) and in a few shops. Really wanted to go to Blue Frog Chocolates, but it was closed due to sudden issues on the street - next time. The house had everything advertised, was a cozy space, very comfortable and we especially enjoyed sitting on the patio and relaxing. The notebook of suggestions and directions was perfect. The owners were not intrusive in any way and the dogs and cats were not a problem (I'm not a huge animal lover so that is a big deal). I would definitely recommend it to others and will probably stay there again when we come to visit our kids. (One minor suggestion - cats used the patio as a litter box so should be checked, but we loved the patio). Thank you for a great stay!
