The Marigny Cottage was recently featured on a Disney network TV show called 'Sweet Retreats' which profiles luxury vacation rentals, and the show's hosts chose the Cottage for their vacation!
The Marigny Cottage is a classic Eastlake Victorian townhouse that was constructed in the early 20th century in New Orleans' Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, which is adjacent to and within walking distance of the French Quarter. The Cottage has recently undergone a major renovation that brings out the charm of an early 20th century residence, updated with all modern amenities. The owner recently purchased the Cottage so all furnishings are brand new!
The Cottage, which offers almost 1,500 square feet of living area, has 2 private bedrooms (each with a queen bed) and 1.5 baths, a large formal dining room, a living room, and a spacious eat-in kitchen that opens onto a private courtyard with a Jacuzzi, gas grill and outdoor furniture. The Cottage has 12-foot ceilings, polished hardwood floors, 3 decorative fireplaces and large windows throughout which give the home a light, airy feel. The Cottage has central heating and cooling, and most rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan that takes the edge off of those days when the mercury is running high.
Guests enter the home through a formal entryway characteristic of traditional sidehall cottages. Adjacent to the entryway is a formal dining room featuring an exposed brick fireplace with a decorative mantle and two floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the room in sunlight. This room is furnished with a large farmhouse dining table that seats up to six people and is perfect for those evenings when you just want to order in or have our house manager Sidney prepare you a New Orleans-style feast in our chef's kitchen.
The spacious, light-filled living room has an exposed brick decorative fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa, a loveseat, coffee tables and a lounge chair. The living room also features a 40-inch flat screen HDTV, along with a DVD/CD player and an iPod dock. Wireless high speed internet is available throughout the Cottage.
When you are on vacation nothing is more important than getting a good night's rest. So, we have furnished each bedroom with a new, high-quality pillow top mattress, a down comforter, chenille throws and 600-thread count sheets that we guarantee will make it difficult to get out of bed each morning. Each bedroom has a closet, a dresser, nightstand, an iPod dock/alarm clock, plus the master bedroom has a 26-inch HDTV with DVD player. The master bedroom also has an exposed brick decorative fireplace.
The full bathroom is classic old New Orleans (but in a renovated way) with a pedestal sink and a clawfoot tub with a shower enclosure. The Cottage also has a renovated half-bathroom adjacent to the living room and a large washer and dryer located in the kitchen area. Each bathroom is supplied with high-quality Egyptian cotton towels and bath sheets.
Our large, modern eat-in kitchen is delightfully bathed in sunlight with three sets of windows and a set of French doors that lead to the courtyard. Indeed, our kitchen is uncharacteristically large and airy for historic homes in the Marigny neighborhood. The kitchen features custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and is well-equipped with a complete supply of cookware, dishes and cutlery. Small appliances include a toaster oven, a microwave and a blender. We believe that coffee is one of life's great pleasures (and it's taken pretty seriously in NOLA), so we have provided our coffee-loving guests with three options for their morning brew - an espresso maker, a French press and a traditional coffee maker. After you have brewed your morning coffee, simply take a stroll through the French doors into the courtyard to sip your coffee and listen to the sounds of morning in N'Awlins, which might include the horn of a paddlewheeler making its way down the Mississippi a few blocks away!
And while you are in the courtyard, you might as well enjoy all of the amenities offered - soak in the Jacuzzi, throw some Louisiana shrimp on the grill or just relax on the outdoor furniture. The Cottage on Port is so comfortable that you might not want to leave!
Our local house managers - Merri and Sidney Roussell - are native New Orleanians who can be a resource to our guests during their stay. Sidney owns a catering business and is available to prepare in-home meals for our guests at their request. Sidney is also available by appointment to provide guests with black car service during their stay. Please inquire when booking the property.

Owner purchased this Townhome in 2011
Why Owner chose Bywater
We bought the Cottage because we were looking for a uniquely New Orleans home in a uniquely New Orleans neighborhood. As we work in New Orleans part-time, this is our home when we are there.
What makes this Townhome unique
After those New Orleans nights, which frequently run late, involve lots of food and a 'few' cocktails, I love to crawl into the super-comfortable beds and fall into a deep slumber. Also, evenings in the courtyard and Jacuzzi are great because you can sip on a glass of wine, fire up the grill and watch the sun set behind the church steeples in the distance.

We enjoyed our stay, information provided was very useful
Adorable, clean and charming in a great location!
Everything was perfect and I would definitely stay here again!
Home away from home
This was our second time staying here. It has plenty of spots to hit near it. Great coffee shops, nice neighbors, a very convenient corner store, etc. We always plan to stay here when we come to NOLA.
I stayed there over a weekend with some friends. Looks just like the pictures, really enjoyed the hot tub. Close to bourbon without all the noise.
Loved this place!!!
Very spacious, beautifully decorated cottage. It's in a cute, quiet neighborhood. We felt safe walking around. Really close to everything. Only a $6 Uber to the French Quarter if we didn't want to walk. And the beds were SO comfy!
Clean, beautiful and cozy home
Truly a very beautiful home to stay in. Very clean, and smells so good. The owners are very organized, and very sweet. This house made us feel at home with the comfortable beds and bedding. We were so amazed of our stay and will be back soon! Thank you Erin and Kevin!
