Property description

Originally built in 1865, the entire second floor of this renovated, 1400 sq. foot, 2 bedroom 'storehouse' has its own private entrance with a full size elevator. Designed with an open floor plan, this apartment boasts 12' tall ceilings and a 900 sq. foot wrap-around balcony overlooking Chartres and Marigny Streets. Adorned with outdoor furniture, an over-sized hammock and a collection of colorful, potted plants - the gallery invites a relaxing atmosphere for guests to star gaze, people watch, and grill on the two bar-b-que pits available.

The fully equipped, eat-in kitchen includes a stove, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and another private second floor courtyard.

Imported Italian tiles adorn a magnificent bathroom w/ a walk in shower, dressing area and full size washer and dryer.

The living room features a 65', high-definition, flat screen TV w/ surround sound, a wi-fi connection, and a very comfortable leather sectional and recliner.

The master bedroom includes a kingsized bed, a walk-in closet, a dresser, and an armoire with a built in 45', high definition, flat-screen TV. The second bedroom has an antique, iron-wrought full-size bed and armoire.

This tastefully decorated home's comfortable furniture, original hardwood floors, huge 9' windows throughout, central a/c and heat and five ceiling fans make this home a veritable oasis for relaxing after jaunts around our beautiful but sometimes humid city. Designed for four people, there is plenty of space to provide sleeping accommodations for another 2 people with air mattress provided.

Fees:

  • Cleaning Fee $100
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

I don’t like rules - in fact, I spend considerable time and energy challenging authority. But while you’re here, kindly observe the following “guidelines”:

* Smoking is allowed outdoors only.

*Pets are welcome with a 100.00 non-refundable deposit

*Check-in time is 4:00 pm and check-out time is 12:00 pm unless otherwise approved. An early check-in may be arranged based on availability. A late check-out may be arranged based on the severity of your hangover.

* We try to maintain quiet(er) hours between 11pm and 9am - so please do not operate your fork lift or park your helicopter during that time.

* Please be respectful of my neighbors. Guests who repeatedly disturb other guests or

neighbors will be asked to leave and will not be provided a refund. Gatherings that include six or more non-residential guests require my prior approval.

*Note this unit is best suited for four occupants, but can accommodate six with a queen-sized air mattress (available upon request). Any additional overnight guests beyond the maximum are subject to an additional $50.00 per night fee.

Parking:

Finding free street parking within a block or two is rarely a problem, but please be advised that your vehicle must be parked along the curb at least 20ft behind the street’s intersection or you will get ticketed and/ or towed. We are not responsible for damage to vehicles, or damage or loss of property left in parked vehicles, regardless of location.

Maintenance:

If you should have any further question please don’t hesitate to contact me, anytime. And call me if you get into any trouble...so I can join you!

I look forward to hosting your next NOLA adventure!

Best,

Frankie Cheek

Innkeeper / Owner - Frankie’s NOLA Place

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a lifelong resident of Greater New Orleans and have been building, renovating an managing a portfolio of Investment Properties for over 35 years. Since retiring from the US Government 3 years ago, I am now this property's full-time Innkeeper and I live onsite.

Why the Owner Chose Marigny-Bywater:
We are only 2 blks away from the Mississippi River at the corner of Chartres Street and Marigny Street in the Historic Faubourg Marigny. Being so closely located to the French Market, the Street Care line allows fun and easy access to other attractions such as the Aquarium of th e America's, Jackson Square, Cafe' du Monde and numerous others. Walking, however, is not a problem as you are only 3 blocks from the French Quarter and even closer to the hip Frenchman Street, World Famous for it's Jazz Music, along with a mecca of bars, restaurants and Jazz Clubs.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are located only 2 blocks from the Mississippi River at the corner of Chartres and Marigny Streets in the Historic Foubourg Marigny. A beautiful walk to the French Market, This amazing neighborhood is hot-spot where locals come for entertainment and the neighborhood is the point of origin for several Carnival marching parades. This location provides not only close access to the French Quarter but also this location in the Foubourg Marigny allows you a glimpse of the Historic past beyond the French Quarter as you marvel at the surviving architecture that has become home to many writers, painters, musicians and artists of all sorts. The area boasts of colorfully painted homes, trendy restaurants, coffee shops and clubs with an amazing mixture of all types of people living in this vibrant urban setting. The Marigny is safe, quiet, and brimming over with old-world, New Orleans charm. Public transportation is close and available to transport guests to the Central Business District, Metarie, Mid City & the Garden District. The Street Car Line allows you fun and easy access to the French Quarter and other attractions such as the Aquarium of the Americas, Jackson Square, Cafe' Du Monde, the World War II museum, and numerous others. Walking however, is not a problem as you are only 3 blocks away from the French Quarter and even closer to the hip Frenchman Street mecca of bars, restaurants and Jazz clubs.
