About The Owner

I'm a modern jazz trombone playing producer who spends time traveling and teaching kids music and musical theatre. I've been on the road since the age of 18, so I know what it's like to be away from home and need comfortable accommodations. Spent time traveling the states, S. America, Europe, Japan, and S. Africa playing with legendary jazz musicians as well as my own groups.

Born and raised in New Orleans, I've lived in this house for 25+ years. Watched New Orleans transform both before and after Hurricane K. A saints fan for life...who dat!

I've got 2 parents, 5 brothers, 1 wife and 1 daughter, so I treat everyone who stays like family. If you want constant communications, suggestions or referrals, we've got you covered. Or if you just want a place to lay your head, chill and be left alone, it's all good!

My wife Trena does the decorating and I am admittedly obsessed with renovating. Just like the brand of jazz I play, I love mixing the old school with the modern. The natural look of wood finish is also a favorite, so just about all of the interior doors in the house are stained and finished, not painted.

My keys to life: Love, respect and good old common sense!

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose Faubourg Delassize

This Creole Cottage is uniquely designed and a wonderful quiet haven offset from the hustle and bustle of major streets. The Victorian mansion that is adjacent to the cottage displays the grandeur of classic 19th century New Orleans architecture.

I thought the online photos did not do justice to how nice this cottage is. The loft area was great. The stairs were a bit too steep for me but overall a great experience. Easy walk to the St. Charles street car line. The homeowners were professional and prompt if we had any questions. At check in we were locked out. I called Mrs. Marsalis and she arrived in less than 10 minutes to assist us. Great experience overall!

Beautiful place inside and out

  • 4 of 5

My overall experience was great, the only negative thing was the cottage having only one bathroom downstairs. There were 4 women in my party so it took a little longer to get dressed, but other than that, everything that was portrayed in the pictures were dead on....and also the location was perfectly centralized to everything, downtown restaurants off canal street, casino and the Superdome!!
