Marigny-Bywater apartment description

Welcome to your New Orleans home.

Here's your chance to live and play where the locals do -- in grand and funky style!

Just four short blocks to the French Quarter (and only three to Frenchmen Street -- where most of the best music venues in town are), this amazing and unique apartment is ideally located. Also within walking distance are several coffee shops (the closest is less than a half block away), a full service grocery store, and too many restaurants and nightclubs to mention. Also, Washington Square Park is only two and a half blocks away, which includes a swing set and jungle gym for the kids.

About the Marigny: The Faubourg Marigny is easily (in our humble opinion) the most desirable neighborhood in all of downtown New Orleans. Travel back in time to a place where history comes alive right outside your front door, where European roots are always evident, and many of the homes are over a century old. A walk through the Marigny gives one the sensation of strolling through a picture postcard of a bygone era. The neighbors here are happy (who wouldn't be in such a wonderful place?) and always offer you a warm hello as you pass. It is a peaceful place, but very close to some of the most wonderful noise on the planet. And if you are a fan of the HBO series 'Treme,' you will be pleased to know that the infamously quirky Krewe du Vieux parade passes our block twice!

About the apartment: Nestled away from the street in the most convenient, beautiful and safest part of the Marigny, the accommodations are ideally located. The apartment is a spacious 1000 square feet, featuring a large living room, full kitchen with amenities, two large bedrooms, and one full bathroom. The rooms are furnished with antiques and interesting artifacts, including one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture created by local artisans. (Note: This apartment also functions as a living gallery, so most of the artisan furniture and wall hangings are available for purchase if you would like the ultimate souvenir -- just ask for pricing!) We also offer off-street parking -- a rare and much coveted feature during those peak times of the year when street parking can be so difficult (some say impossible) to find!

A brief tour of the apartment:

After pulling into our small parking lot, you will see that the house is set back from the street, for added security and privacy. You will notice that there is no door facing the street -- one must enter through the security gate to even see the first entrance to the house. Once through the gate, your apartment is the first door on the left. There is a little smoking area outside the front door (smoking is not allowed inside the apartment), where you will notice an antique door has been converted into a comfy bench by a local artist.

Once through the front door, the visual impact of this beautiful place will first hit you. To the left you will see a large desk with interestingly stocked bookshelves where you can set up your office away from home if you like (free wi-fi included). The photography and artwork on the walls is all created by local artists. Even the coffee table is an original work of art. There is a day bed with trundle (sleeps two) and a futon that folds out into a sleeper (also sleeps two) at the center of the living room, near the hi-definition flat screen TV.

To the right you will see our spacious kitchen, the visual center piece of which is a dining table fashioned by a local artist from another antique door and beautifully finished with vintage roof slates for a lovely mosaic effect (these slates were actually blown off the house you are staying in during Hurricane Katrina). You will note a washer/dryer poised dutifully in the corner (no trips to the Laundromat!), a refrigerator, electric oven and stove, and lots of counter and cabinet space -- much of which is filled with dishes, silverware and cooking utensils.

After visiting the living room and kitchen in the front area, you will walk into a hallway. Hallways themselves are something of a rarity in these older neighborhoods -- shotgun homes and creole cottages tend to be designed without halls, therefore forcing one to walk through one room to get to the next -- but there are no such privacy concerns here!

Immediately to the left is the master bedroom. This room is the jewel of the apartment. Spacious and beautiful, it features antique furniture and a queen-sized bed. It is really difficult to describe the magnificence of this room, so please have a look at the two photos of it in this ad to get a better idea!

Returning to the hallway, the next room is the bathroom, with a full shower/bathtub. The bathroom is charmingly decorated in the theme of a turn-of-the-century Storyville boudoir.

At the end of the hall is the second bedroom, which features a queen-sized bed (sleeps two) and a day bed with trundle (also sleeps two). The furniture in this room is mostly the work of local artists as well, and the overall theme of the space is in homage to the Vodou religion that is still practiced in New Orleans. The walls have been painted various shades of purple, and Veves (symbolic images of the Vodou faith) have been painted on the walls as a blessing for all those who stay here.

The landlords (who happen to be artists/writers/musicans themselves) live on the premises in an adjacent apartment and are always ready to answer your questions or lend a hand. These accommodations are child friendly, but small children may not be left alone in the apartment (babysitting services may be worked out in advance, depending on availability).

Please email us to receive a copy of our detailed policies regarding refunds, cancellations, deposits, tenant rules, etc. You will need to agree to our policies prior to booking.

You must be at least 25 years old to rent this apartment.

We look forward to becoming your New Orleans home away from home!

                We arrived after a long drive on a chilly night at midnight. There was a light glowing in the window and the home was warm and welcoming. Louie and Ellie had left us coffee and bagels in the fridge and lots of extras to make our stay as comfortable as possible. It really did feel like home from home. The apartment was bigger than I expected from the photographs but they accurately dipict the colorful and fun NOLA environment they have recreated inside the home. It was clean and well maintained and the beds were very comfortable. Louie could not have been more helpful and efficient as we arranged our stay. It was to gather with our young adult children over their Thanksgiving break. The location is perfect for exploring NOLA in general and is very close to Frenchman Street and the jazz scene there. We enjoyed walking everywhere and exploring the local area and beyond to the more touristy parts of town. It was so nice to come back to a quiet residential neighborhood when we needed some rest. We will definitely stay here again! I only have one minor complaint and that is that the living room day bed and futon do not make very comfortable seating but I understand the dilemma of providing dual purpose furniture.

                This was an incredible place to stay with the family during our visit to New Orleans. The décor and artwork made us feel like we were surrounded in the character of New Orleans. The apartment had everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating with our arrival time and quick to offer recommendations for the best places to visit in the neighborhood. Walking distance to Frenchmen Street, the French Quarter, numerous local cafes and stores. Off street parking a huge bonus. I will stay again during our next visit to NOLA... hopefully sooner than later.

                Looked at a few other places to stay, and decided on this Funky Cool Home. I traveled to NOLA for a conference with 3 of my co-workers for 6 nights. When we arrived we were greeted by a very nice man, Louis and later in the day we met his lovely wife. We were walking distance from the French Quarter, Frenchman Street and the hotel that hosted the U.S. Conference on Aids which was past Canel Street. The apartment was colorful, comfortable and clean. I would recommend this home away from home to any and everyone.

                I stayed in Louis' "funky cool" house for my bachelorette getaway, with six of my girlfriends and we absolutely loved it! There was plenty of space for us girls to sleep comfortably. When we arrived, Louis was there to greet us at the door and give us a tour of his colorful home. The home is like a museum with all of the art work and colorful furniture. Louis had a map for us and helped with directions on how to get to the areas we wanted to visit, throughout our stay. He was always just a text away with any other questions we might of had, like what places to eat at. The house was a short walk away from everything we wanted to see, and we only used a cab once during our weekend stay. Thank you, Louis for making our stay in New Orleans a rememberable one and also for the treats that you had for us in the fridge, like the yummy bagels! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who wants to get the full experience of New Orleans.

                My group arrived at different times on may 10 and the owners-Louie and Elly- were more than accommodating! Louie was my main contact prior to our arrival and answered all of my questions promptly. He was very flexible with my requests. When we arrived, we found a clean, spacious, and funky apartment. The artwork is AMAZING! We bought several pieces to bring home. Thank you, Elly! Elly also recommended some fabulous local restaurants and advised which ones should be avoided. (Go to Melange and the Ruby Slipper). I had never stayed in this area and was pleasantly surprised. It is walking distance to the French Quarter but there are tons of things to do/see in this area that are off the "beaten path". Next time we are in NOLA, this is our home!

                Myself and 7 other girls stayed here for St Pattys Day weekend for a bachelorette party and we honestly couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at this wonderful house!! We seriously keep talking about how obsessed we were with the decorations and the rooms and how comfortable we felt staying here. It was an easy walk to the French quarter and we felt safe at all times of day. There was an awesome little coffee shop across the street that we went to every morning for our iced coffees and there was a store a few blocks away for snacks! Louie and Elly were great hosts and we look forward to coming back again soon and staying here!! Thank you for an amazing weekend!!!

                My 7 girlfriends and I were here for St. Patrick's Day. This was the cutest house imaginable and the hosts were even better. This rental really brings out the NOLA atmosphere and was everything we could have imagined. It was in a nice lil neighborhood where we felt safe. The home is very inviting, it will accomodate your every need and its beautifully decorated with so much art. We even purchased some items, and loved that the proceeds go to animal rescue! There was a market just down the street, a coffee shop too, and it was a pretty short walk to Bourban Street which is where we spent most of our time. This is an ideal place to stay when visiting New Orleans. I highly recommend it.

                Ella and Louie were amazing hosts! They were available when we needed some advice around the city. The place was unique and just fit our demands. We were 5 girls and felt really comfortable in the house. It did not feel cramped at all. The location is great! Very close to Frenchmen street, where all the locals hang out. Bourbon st, more touristy area, is close enough to walk and stumble home. The french market is not too far away. If you have a car, it is very convenient to come in and out to the highway. All in all, a wonderful place, wonderful hosts, and great city!

                I can't say a single negative thing about this vacation rental. Louie and Elly were a delight to work with and plan our trip. Our guest count kept changing and they were very accomidating by letting us add people to the trip and then refunding us when we had a guest drop out. No late fees or charges- just a refund. We knew nothing about the area and the Marigny was the perfect. We walked everywhere (took a bus once when we went to up town) but everything else was walking distance. We were about a ten minute walk to the French Quarter but only a 3 minute walk to Frenchman Street which I would prefer over Bourbon street any day. The house was so funky and charming. There is art everywhere in the house (most of it is for sale) and they had a stocked fridge for us (water bottles, bagels, cream cheese, etc.) which was totally unexpected. It was clean upon arrival and we knew exactly what we were getting based on the pictures (no surprises). I can't wait to go back. Thanks Louie and Elly!

                We had a wonderful stay in the Marigny, and Louis was the perfect host. He was friendly and generous from the very first email to the last text before departure. Louis met us at the apartment and went over all the details, made numerous suggestions for dining, shopping and walking in the neighborhood. Louis also urged us to contact him if we should need anything at all. He is the perfect host. He even had some breakfast food there for us, plenty of bottled water and fabulous chicory coffee. We had reserved the apartment for ourselves and my in-laws (We were in town for my father in laws 80th, and our nephew's wedding). At first glance the apartment is somewhat bohemian (very true to the pictures of course, but brighter in living color) and in a transitional neighborhood, and we weren't sure that it would be suitable for the in-laws due to the step in tub with no grab rail, the soft mattresses, and I'd forgotten how difficult it is to walk on NOLA sidewalks (they are notoriously broken up and half-hazard), but after being given the choice the in-laws were game to give it a try and we ended up having a wonderful week together. We all walked back and forth to the French Quarter and took advantage of this great neighborhood. My husband grew up in NOLA, but had never ventured into the Marigny...truth is, we didn't even know how to say it..."Mare-ah-knee". There are so many pluses: Louis, location, spacious and very well supplied apartment. Lovely and interesting decor, off-street Parking!!! everything you need within walking distance...groceries, package store, bars, restaurants, tons of breakfast places, loads of live music and colorful folks. Peaceful and quiet in the apartment. The only negatives for us were the soft mattresses and the bathroom although very clean, does not appear so because of old grout and fixtures. Overall, this is a lovely apartment and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It's a short walk to Frenchman's Market and the French Quarter.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1996

              Why the Owner Chose Marigny-Bywater:
              To us, this is not just a vacation rental, it is our longtime home. Our little family has lived in the back apartment for 16 years, and both of our children (now teenagers) took their first steps in this wonderful home. We honestly cannot imagine living anywhere else -- New Orleans just has everything you can possibly want to lead a productive, creative, fun and exciting life. The Hurricane Katrina experience only quickened our resolve to protect and appreciate our beloved city more than ever, and we like nothing more than to act as good will ambassadors and hosts to those who share our affection for this greatest of American cities.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              On the day we moved into our home, the first thing I noticed was the sound of a trumpet playing. It turned out to be one of our first neighbors, an old-time jazzman who liked to practice out in his yard -- of course, none of the neighbors protested such a beautiful sound. Likewise, the sound of an approaching brass band or second line parade is not uncommon here, and neither is the sound of calliope music wafting through the air from the Steamboat Natchez on the Mississippi River. The music venues of Frenchmen Street (only three blocks away) can always keep boredom at bay. We take frequent walks through the historic French Quarter that is nearby, and are amazed at how we are always able to discover something new, no matter how many times we take these walks. Having home schooled our kids up to high school, we are in the habit of taking them on weekly trips to the museums (many of which are walking distance), or the Aquarium (a short streetcar ride or long walk from our home), or the Audubon Zoo (which is uptown, so a streetcar or automobile is the best way to get there). It is also great to have Washington Square Park such a short walk away, and the immense City Park (which also houses the New Orleans Museum of Art) is just a short drive away. Really, there is so much to love about living here that I could go on and on.
