About the owner: This is a family business. The building was showcased in New Orleans magazine. Built in 1846, it was never cut up into smaller apartments. We take great pride in the fact that it is the gateway to Frenchmen Street. The smallest apartment is 1800 sq. ft. and the largest is 4300 sq. ft. In total, there are 6 apartments. We ask that you respect our property and please respect the full time tenants. Also, no large parties allowed.
Why the Owner Chose Marigny-Bywater: I didn't choose, it was a family choice. Basically I love the place. Frenchmen Street is so unique. The coolest thing is I have 2 kids but I feel so secure. We take them to Spotted Cat! Other people may not like the vibe, but it is central to all things JAZZ. Believe it or not, even though it is loud in the evenings, I think it's a great spot for families as the kids can sleep and you can enjoy sitting on the balcony sipping a cocktail. It's a great location and central to everything. The cable car to uptown is a block away, The Mint is across the street, The French Market is a block away.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Believe it or not, New Orleans is family friendly! We found the aquarium,the Audobon Zoo and Children's Museum. The best part is being right in the action!Frenchmen Street is the place to be,If you want to listen to jazz. Spotted Cat is a block away, Maison is next door, Check Point Charlies is next door. Frenchmen street is not known for being a quiet area, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, you may find uptown more suitable.
