Marigny-Bywater cottage description

In the historic Faubourg Marigny, three blocks from the French Quarter and one block from the Jazz on Frenchman Street. Built in 1911 and renovated this year with a walk in shower, granite and copper countertops, and a plaster finish in the bedroom. We kept the original details, like rough hewn beams made of barge wood.

The location is ideal for exploring the city during festivals. There is a trolley stop 3 blocks away,plenty of Taxis on Frenchman Street, and we provide 2 loaner bicycles so you can explore the city like a local. We are in a great area and it's easy to access all areas of the city from here. If you're flying in and are just going to be exploring the city then you really don't need to rent a car. There are plenty of places to eat, buy groceries, and pick up anything you may need for your stay within walking distance. Taxi ride from the airport to here is about $30 per 2 persons. If you do need a car or are driving in parking is usually easy on our block. If you don't fee like cooking, walk to one of the nearby cafes or order in. You can find Turkish, Vietnamese, tapas, Thai, vegetarian, classic Creole, German, Italian or Mexican food within a 6 block radius.

We live in the front house and can address questions or concerns if they arise. From our perspective, this neighborhood blends the best of New Orleans. We are experiencing problems with VRBO's new set up for emails and are not recieving all return emails attempting to rent the property after one has made an inquiry. If you have sent an email and have not recieved a response back in 2 days please give me a call.

Keywords: French Quarter, Frenchman Street. Walk down a driveway and through a leafy courtyard and pond to your cottage. It's close to the excitement of Jazzfest, Mardi Gras, the Superbowl, Satchmofest...

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are an easy going couple. He restores outdoor sculptures, classic cars and makes furniture. Chad also will be your contact for the rental

                  Why the Owner Chose Marigny-Bywater:
                  Besides the reasons mentioned, it is one the best preserved historic districts in the country. Everything you need is within walking distance. I tell everyone that we are close enough to everything and just far enough away. The bikes are great for getting around and there is a lock provided. The cottage is very comfy with a lot of character and we have many people say the pictures don't do it justice.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  As mentioned, we have 2 bicycles we can loan you for exploring the quarter or riding to JazzFest. We love this city and are happy to help you have a good visit. It's the best neighborhood we have found in the city. We have plenty of maps and info about the city in the cottage.
