Marigny-Bywater house description

This historic home is located in the heart of the Marigny Triangle, only 3 blocks from the French Quarter and Bourbon St. and only 2 blocks from the eclectic Frenchman St. The side gate entrance opens into a lush tropical bricked patio walkway and fully fenced in courtyard.

The house features 3 sets of French doors leading from the side porch into the sunlit kitchen and dining area. The kitchen has custom made cabinets with copper counter tops and a French country sink. The kitchen is fully stocked with all your culinary needs to keep you busy during your vacation whether you are just looking to make a quick breakfast or if you are serving dinner for eight!

The original heart-of-pine floors lead from the kitchen into the Master Suite. The bath features an original claw-foot tub, pedestal sink, and a subway tiled party shower which has two shower heads and can accommodates 2+ people. The Master bedroom features a large closet with dresser, queen sized bed, couch, coffee table, and flat panel TV. The French doors in the room lead onto a screened in porch attached to the rear of the home, which can seat up to eight people, a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful New Orleans weather!

Stairs lead from the kitchen up to the large living room and second bedroom and bath. The living room features a small reading area, where you can browse the bookcase for a literary classic and relax comfortably on one of the antique leather chairs, or you can curl up on the sectional couch and watch your favorite show on the flat panel TV. Also, for those that need a workspace during your stay, there is a desk where you can use your laptop and spread out your paperwork (a cable is provided for internet hookup if your don't want to connect via WiFi). The room also has an additional couch that folds down into a full sized bed for those that have additional guests.

The second bedroom is located directly off the living room and features a queen sized bed. There is a closet and full dresser to accommodate all of your clothing and two chairs for you to lounge in comfortably.

Directly attached to both the second bedroom and living room is the second full bath. The subway tiled bath contains a shower/tub and pedestal sink, with views to the tropical courtyard below.

The home is great for families and groups of all lifestyles. The neighborhood is friendly and accommodating to all, host to many local bars and restaurants for all tastes and styles. The home is non-smoking, but smoking is permitted on the porches.

Dogs are allowed (there is also a dog door leading into the kitchen that can accommodate up to large dogs), however cats are not (owner is allergic!). Pet deposit required!

MINIMUM AGE to rent home is 25 years old and subject to verification upon request.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: New Orleans has always been a favorite destination for us and our dreams became reality when we bought this house in the spring of 2005, relocating permanently to the city. Only a few months later Katrina hit and forced us to find new jobs in another city. Although we live most of the year away from NOLA, it stays in our hearts wherever we go, however we still get down as often as possible.

              Why the Owner Chose Marigny-Bywater:
              Although Katrina forced us to turn our own residence into a vacation rental, we find New Orleans a very special place so we decided to open up our home to others so they can experience the magic of this city.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our house is very close not only to the French Quarter, but it is only a few minutes walk to Frenchman St. and many local restaurants and bars. If you are looking to explore the city on foot, this location is perfect and does not require you to rent a car to see the city. We almost never use a vehicle when we are in town because everything you need is close by. But for those days you just want to sit back and relax, nowhere is your time better spent then on our back porch, overlooking the tropical courtyard, sipping on a nice cocktail!
