Property description

I would like to welcome you to my home: a traditional New Orleans cottage in the heart of New Orleans,1/2 Block Off Magazine Street and the Garden District, five blocks from St. Charles Avenue for Mardi Gras parades, and street car transportation down to the French Quarter or Uptown.

You will have no need for a rental car...I actually ejoy walking more myself. You can walk everywhere in this beautiful historic area! Enjoy the smell of the blooming sweet olive trees or the magnolias. Or let the famous traditional New Orleans homes steal your heart.

This 850 square foot New Orleans camel back shotgun cottage is a two bedroom, one bathroom cottage. You will be surprised how spacious it is.

My home is within short walking distance of many coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, art galleries, clothing boutiques, food markets, and specialty shops on Magazine Street. This is where the locals go and you will truly get a feel for what New Orleans is all about.

My cottage has an open floor plan with plenty of light. The second bedroom is a loft-style room for adults to enjoy. Special features include hard wood floors, many windows, lovely front porch bench, high-tech security system, central A/C and heat, high ceilings, and adorable backyard patio area for outdoor entertaining.

I hope you will love my home as much as I do. I consider it a must stay when coming to New Orleans. You will not be disappointed!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a California native that fell in love with New Orleans and moved here after the storm. I have a job that keeps me in the Netherlands 3/4 of the year. My house is in such a great location and is so unique that I just can't fathom selling it. My friends told me about VRBO so I've been offering my home to others who want to experience this great city of New Orleans.

Why the Owner Chose Garden District:
My home is a traditional two story camel back shotgun cottage two blocks from New Orleans' famous Garden District and five blocks from St. Charles Avenue. The master bedroom is located above the kitchen and there is a loft above the living room. If you truly want to experience New Orleans like the locals, this is the area to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is very fun and unique. It was built in 1932 and has been remodeled and updated within the last 10 years. It has a relaxing feel that is wonderful to enjoy after a day of touring around the City. You can stroll the Garden District streets a dusk and see how the local community enjoys this special part of America. The house has a security system that is monitored 24/7 and is located in a safe neighborhood so you'll feel very secure. It has keyless entry so you'll never have to worry about forgetting your keys. I have a sweet 40' 1080 HDTV, stereo, Blu-ray player, super fast WIFI, washer/dryer, central AC, back patio deck with built in seating, quaint front bench, and so much more. Besides being a fantastically unique little cottage, you are two houses off one of the best parts of Magazine Street in New Orleans. You are steps from the Garden District, walking distance from the Lower Garden District, and walking distance from the Street Cars that can take you all over New Orleans, including the French Quarter, Uptown, and Audubon Park.
