Property description


Located a stones throw from the French Quarter and close to Frenchmen Street where you can enjoy live traditional Jazz and excellent cuisine!

We have the perfect solution to noisy, impersonal hotel rooms. Stay with us in our detached 2nd story 'Lofty Oasis' behind our main house and experience the charm of New Orleans from a 'Local's Perspective'.

*****This Unit Will Be Exclusively Yours With Your Own Private Courtyard.*****

*******Free On-Street Parking in Front of Our Main House.*******

Surrounded by lush, vibrant foliage begin your day in the Big Easy with your morning coffee and newspaper to the sweet scent of jasmine and the gentle chirping of the many species of local birds.

Close enough to all the action while being peacefully quiet. The Lofty New Orleans Oasis is set back over 140 feet from the street! Private, Well-Lit, Secure Entrance.

One bedroom, one large bath with sky light and new Kohler fixtures. Tile floors & carpeting throughout. Premium bedding and linens. Refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, flat screen TV with Cox cable and high speed internet access. Lush tropical courtyard with vibrant foliage. Well-lit, safe neighborhood.

Our property is nonsmoking and does not accommodate pets.

Cancellation Policy: Please see rate page.

Just a few short blocks away: Famous restaurants and watering holes, live music, shopping, art galleries, museums, antique shops, Jackson Square and the Moon Walk on the levee of the Mississippi River, Authentic paddle wheel Steam Boat Natchez, La Petite Theatre, Mahalia Jackson Theatre for the Performing Arts, Audubon Aquarium, Harrah's Casino, plus much more!

The cultural love child of genteel old Europe, the exotic Caribbean and the sultry South, New Orleans' original colonial neighborhood sets the scene for memorable romantic getaways. This is a city that revels in its passions, and for the visitor with an open heart the sensuality here can be infectious. It is also a city where people come to celebrate, whether by joining the massive public exuberance of Mardi Gras and other events or marking personal milestones in the lives of lovers, such as honeymoons and anniversaries. When a couple raises a glass in toast to each other, it can seem as though the entire town is following suit here.

Part of the appeal of New Orleans is its relaxed pace - a key ingredient to any romantic experience - and a leisurely carriage ride for two is a romantic way to get acquainted with the neighborhood at the beginning of a visit. Various types of mule-drawn carriages are available for hire at Jackson Square on Decatur Street. Carriage drivers generally narrate their tours of the Quarter with stories of various landmark properties, but just let him or her know at the start that you prefer to concentrate on your companion's company and you will have a serene cruise past the beautiful architecture and colorful street-scapes of the Vieux Carré. Snuggle under a blanket on the occasional chilly evening or bask in the tropical sunshine during another beautiful New Orleans day.

The French Quarter's many elegant restaurants make ideal venues for special meals with loved ones. But while the city is most famous for its Creole cuisine, it is the Italian restaurants of the French Quarter that offer some of the most romantic settings.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a professional who came to New Orleans post-Katrina to work on homes in Chalmette, (Saint Bernard Parish) that were damaged by water and the oil spill that occurred from Katrina. I fell in love with this city and the people here and decided to purchase a home and re-locate. I believe in the special magic of New Orleans and it's people and am dedicated to the rebuilding process.

Why the Owner Chose Marigny-Bywater:
New Orleans is the most unique city in the United States with a European 'feel'. New Orleans architecture, history, music, art, and world renowned cuisine attract visitors from all over the world. I chose this property because of its proximity to the French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. Our home is located in the famous Bend of Bourbon where the 'Street Car Named Desire' once traveled. We are surrounded by mansions and homes on the National Historical Registry.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We are located in the historic Marigny in a quiet, residential neighborhood, a stones throw from the French Quarter and 2 blocks from Frenchmen Street, where traditional live jazz still reigns king. Enjoy convenient, free on street parking directly in front of our home. New Orleans is a walking city and our home is conveniently located to access famous restaurants, watering holes, live music, live theatre, shopping, museums and sightseeing without the use of a car.
