About the property

Open the Green Door and enter a New Orleans dream. The large front parlor will greet you with the charm and elegance that our city celebrates.

A floor-to-ceiling bookcase stands before you. A vintage cellarette will be your bar. Both the parlor and the adjacent large bedroom surround you with armoires, elegant mirrors, fireplaces with ornate mantels and colorful old carpets are beneath your feet.

The home is located in the heart of the Marigny--which will put you close to everything . The bustling, up-and-coming St. Claude Avenue is one and a half blocks away. The Avenue is alive with funky dive bars, art galleries, eateries, thrift and junk shops--even theaters. Coffee shops abound! And restaurants of all kinds seem to pop up over night.

The entire Crescent City is easily at hand. We are ten (10) walkable blocks from the French Quarter. Take the new North Rampart street car line only 5 blocks away, and you'll be there in 5 minutes! Or it will connect you to the entire city for the most affordable price next to walking . Bikes can be rented a few blocks away and buses also run up and down St Claude Avenue.

Mardi Gras? The Season begins just 3 blocks from here with the irreverent Krewe De Vieux quickly followed by the hip, sci-fi themed Chewbaccus. And the Season ends in the same spot with the Ste. Anne and Ste. Cecilia walking parades where EVERYONE is the krewe and the costuming bar is set WAY high!

Jazzfest? French Quarter Fest? Voo Doo Fest? It seems that we have parades, second lines and festivals one right after the other. Every once in a while, a make-shift gaggle of a parade will flow right past the front door. Or maybe you're here for a convention. There are oodles of them all year round and the Central Business District is just minutes away with your Uber or Lyft or cab app.

NOTE to folks with dog allergies: Although no dogs are allowed in the space--they HAVE been in the space in the past.

About Marna David

Your hosts are two sisters. Stephanie has an extensive and creative background in antiques and furniture refinishing while Marna has been busy for years as much historic architecture in New Orleans as she can manage. While we'll give you your space and privacy, we ARE on hand with, hopefully, helpful information--or help--if needed.

Marna David purchased this house in 2001

Why Marna David chose Faubourg Marigny

LOCATION!! (As we always say). The hustle and bustle and all the fun is never far away--but you can come "home" for a respite in a beautiful setting.

What makes this house unique

New Orleans herself is unique! It always has been--but now, in it's rejuvenation post Katrina, it has managed to both retain it's historic fabric and culture but become a mecca for entrepreneurship and artistic expression (we have the AirLift--a house that is an instrument! It is an acoustic marvel). I fell in love with the architecture in this city and this house was my first. I think you'll fall in love with it too!

Charming house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the location couldn't be better. Easy walking distance to the FQ and a few blocks to Rampart where you can get the streetcar or bus. The neighborhood is quiet with lots of great places to eat. The house has charming interior details, interesting antiques and decor make this place really unique. The bed is extremely comfortable with really nice linens. We especially appreciated all the amenities. They thought of everything you could possibly need. The hosts were very accommodating to your needs allowing us to leave our suitcases before check in and out. We loved this place so much! It was the perfect home away from home. Thanks for sharing your place. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: I can't imagine a better review! I don't think there is one thing about the Green Door that WE love--that you didn't mention. And about that bed--so happy that you liked it! (Probably due to our discovery of thread count some years ago!!). Anyway, we just couldn't imagine supplying our guests with less. We put so much into making the space charming---and we are just SO lucky in the location. The neighborhood is warm and wonderful and welcoming--both for us as residents and for our guests as well. Thank you so much for your review. You know we'd love to have you anytime!

Great, cute house in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The house is very cute and was great for me and my college aged daughter (we didn’t mind sharing the big bed). Easy walking distance to Frenchman St. And Bourban St. if you don’t mind some walking and the St. Roch market at the end of the block was a great little place that I could have eaten at daily. Nice neighborhood with a food coop on the street and everyone we passed by that was outside was friendly, said hi and gave us recommendations on things to do or places to eat. House was quiet and I’d definitely stay here again if visiting NOLA again. My daughter met Marna upon arrival and I only saw Marna or anyone else at the house while waking out to the uber as I left. Not intrusive at all even though they live on the property. Great rental and great value.

We just appreciate that you chose to do that staying at the Green Door. Thanks so much for your great review. And we'd love to have you stay with us again. Who knows...New Orleans has a way of calling folks back!

Great location! Excellent interior decoration. We reveled in all the little touches. Loved St Roch market and Who Dat restaurants. We walked to French quarter and back (we’re in our mid- late 60s ) Barataria and ST Charles ST for the mansions and garden district rounded out out 3 day trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the fine review! I think you are the first of our guests to mention Barataria...It is such a unique area and a wonderful way to experience the bayou-to-marshland eco-structure. We appreciate also your connection of both the local amenities and the splendid grand-scale "theater" of the Garden District. Thanks a lot and glad you had a good trip!

Perfect location with character for a NOLA getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to stay at Marna and Stephanie’s Green Door home when we were in NOLA. It truly made the trip so much more special! The space is clean, tidy and makes you feel like you’re part of the community. We walked everywhere on our trip- and the Green Door is the perfect home base to rest up, change your clothes and then explore some more! We ate breakfast at the St. Roch Market almost everyday, there’s so many delicious choices! The owners were incredibly easy to work with and communicated quickly with us to answer any questions. And it was very affordable, which is always a plus! Thank you for the wonderful stay!!

Owner's Response: And we were lucky to have YOU. So happy that you felt so much a part of the neighborhood--it's one of the biggest pluses the Green Door offers and one of our own personal joys. Thanks for using our local businesses, too....they are all so diverse and interesting--and we all benefit from this great Marigny location. You two were such pleasant guests! Of course we thank you for this fab review and would love to have you visit again!

Great place to stay! Tons of character within the home. Walking distance to French Quarter. Plenty of amenities provided with the home that weren't expected. Friendly neighbors/neighborhood. Eat at New Orleans Cake Café and Bakery right around the corner!

Owner's Response: Awesome! Thanks for that great review. It means a lot when our guests comment on the character of our home--we do put a lot of ourselves into that! Love that you "felt" the good vibe in the neighborhood--it's just part of what makes it special. Hope you'll come our way again sometime.

Car: not necessary

Coffee shops abound! The local Fresh Food Co-op is one block away and groceries can be "made" at the Mardi Gras Zone just a few more blocks away. Funky dive-bars and craft cocktail watering holes are plentiful and within walking distance. Restaurants from fine-dining (The Franklin, Feelings, The Country Club, Paladar 411), BBQ (The Joint) to the quirky (The Lost Love Lounge or Mimi's), Middle Eastern (Schiros) name it. It's all here. Night life litters St Claude Av and the local gold standard of Frenchmen Street is at hand. Art galleries. Even a couple of theaters (offering small presentations, slam poetry, plays and the Spotlight New Orleans Show is just up the block. You can look right at the newly renovated St Roch Market by standing out front in front of the house.
