Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the Historic Marigny neighborhood! A REAL DEAL New Orleans experience in a brick home built in 1830! Area has a nice European feel to it...We are 10 blks to the French Quarter, and without all the noise and expensive parking-- all you need within walking distance-- 2 blocks to a huge 24 hour grocery, only 8 blocks to famous 'Frenchmen St'. (has great restaurants/live music), there are 15 restaurants and coffee shops all within a few blocks of this home. My favorite is a vintage junk shop--i always find treasures every time i go--just 3 blocks away......

This building is a Creole corner store built in 1830. It's an incredible open space-1650 square ft--plenty of room to hang out and enjoy!! The living/kitchen/dining is all open. It used to be a cafe years ago. Has 12 foot ceilings in living area, exposed brick walls, a tropical courtyard-- Has charcoal grill. This is the whole downstairs, 1650 square feet + courtyard, 2 bedrooms with a KING bed in 1 bedroom + queen bed in 2nd bedroom. We have a queen mattress for living room-- 3 beds, sleeps 6 total. I only allow 6 since it only has 1 bathroom.

I also have 1 unit upstairs available with a HUGE balcony #208257, and a studio next door #504978 if you have 2-4 extra people. These can be rented simultaneously if you have a large group- 16 people maximum This is a residential area, so WE CANT ALLOW BACHELOR PARTIES OR PEOPLE UNDER 25 TO STAY HERE, sorry. AND IF YOU ARE A LOUD GROUP- YOU MAY WANT TO TRY ANOTHER HOME- we are strict about 10pm noise rule.

Across the street is a beautiful 200 yr old church building. The neighbors are friendly; you won't want to leave!!

Home has all you need-- 'full kitchen'/all new linens/towels. I got so many customers from my other unit, so I had to expand........See my other listings if this isn't what you are looking for vrbo #208257, #445937, 432616 or #432617 or #476331, #607462

ENJOY!!! If this unit is full, the other one might be available!! Its best to email me for questions or to book.

Parking is Free on the street, but you always get a spot next to the house, and there are no meters to pay. yea!!

Recommendation-- rent or bring bicycles!! THE best way to see the City!!!

A large, comfortable, quirky house just close enough to the action

  • 4 of 5

We loved our week in NOLA in the spring and the location and comfort of this property was an important ingredient. It is exactly as advertised, large and very comfortable, with a little court in the back where we would sit and read in the mix of sun and shade at the end of a long day. In the NOLA fashion, you should know that the two bedrooms are not on a hallway - you need to pass through one of them to get to the other. The big wooden sliding doors are noisy in the night, as are the train whistles at the level crossing just down the street. But none of this detracted from our overall enjoyment of this well-equipped, clean and perfectly-located house. It is in a quiet residential area and just walking around the neighbourhood, with the brightly painted Victorian-French-Spanish architecture, was a constant pleasure. It is just a 10-30 minute walk to the main action of the French quarter, depending on where you want to go - 10 minutes to the music clubs on Frenchmen street, where we spent several evenings enjoying the jazz (no worry for us two "elderly" ladies walking home in the wee hours); 30 minutes to Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, or Louis-Armstrong Park. Otherwise, Uber was super-efficient. Our favorites : The Franklin, a superb little restaurant just two blocks away, corner Dauphine and Franklin, pricey but definitely worth every penny; Mimi's, also close by, where we were disappointed because there was no live music (unless it started after we left) but the wonderful food, tapas-style, the atmosphere and recorded music made for a very lovely evening; the Three Muses, on Frenchmen Street, with live jazz and again, wonderful food, also tapas-style; Louis Armstrong Park and the environs (the Treme) - and another great little place for lunch, Mister Gregory's ; City Park (beautiful wildlife!) and the New Orleans Museum of Art ; and to get out of the heat, if necessary, the very interesting Cabildo museum of the history of Louisiana, just next to Jackson Square. We would return to the Gypsy House without hesitation.

Great comfortable spot in a excellent neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast here! Lovely spot with all the amenities situated in a good location - close enough to walk down to Frenchmen, but far enough away to quietly relax if desired.

Great NOLA house with perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls' trip to NOLA and stayed at this great house. Plenty of room especially the kitchen/den area. We were celebrating two birthdays so the open design made it great for making drinks and decorating the table with cake and snacks. The property owners were easy to work with and very helpful. Uber & Lyft were the perfect option for getting rides to and from wherever we wanted to go. We even walked to a quaint restaurant down the street called The Franklin for oysters and martinis! We would definitely stay here again!
