About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Luxury Creole Cottage located in Historic New Orleans near the French Quarter.. This historic home, built in 1875, has been lovingly restored while maintaining its Old World charm. Two bedroom and two baths, as well as a large living room and den, are meticulously maintained. The kitchen and baths are newly renovated, with marble and granite, including stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The furnishings are antique and the house has been decorated by a professional designer.

One bedroom contains a queen bed and the other contains two queen beds. The beds have new pillow top mattresses and all cotton linens. There are two adjoining full baths next to the bedrooms. There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the den. It has a fully equipped kitchen. The amenities will make your stay equal to a luxury hotel. There is a relaxing patio, enclosed by brick and wood fencing, a perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail or glass of wine.

The house is near all of the French Quarter's attractions: Restaurants, Nightclubs, Harrah's Casino, Jackson Square, The French Market, Aquarium, River Walk, Canal Place, Preservation Hall, Royal Street antique shops and Bourbon Street jazz clubs.

To be honest, the house is not really suitable for families with young children. The antique furniture and fabrics are not child friendly. It is best suited for adults who are looking for a beautifully decorated retreat. It is perfect for two couples.

We also have for rent a perfect beachfront condo in Perdido Key (Pensacola, FL) VRBO Listing # 294983, and two lovely mountain homes in Highlands, North Carolina, VRBO Listings # 303786 and # 298029.

Great location-Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults recently stayed in this lovely home. Great location in the French Quarter. The house is beautifully decorated and well appointed with towels, sheets etc... my daughter slept on the pull out sofa in the den and was very comfortable- the interior door between the kitchen and den really made the den a third bedroom.There was ample room for all of us to spread out. Mary ann was a pleasure to work with. Some street noise could be heard at night but not constant and not a problem. i absolutely recommend staying here

Absolutely loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

This house has such a great location, and the layout is excellent- the bathrooms and bedrooms are great sizes and the backyard space was perfect. The house was also well stocked (2 blowdryers, 2 irons, plenty of towels and pillows and blankets). My husband and I shared this house with family (6 of us in total) and it fit us all more than comfortably. I am also obsessed with the decor. Would definitely recommend!

Great Location, Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This was a PERFECT house for a week's stay in New Orleans. We loved being in the middle of the French Quarter & only 1 block off of Bourbon St. The decor of the house was amazing (over the week, there was always a new painting or artifact to discover) and added to the entire NOLA experience! It's a perfect house for 2 couples with 2 full bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds & pillows were very comfortable. The house was well-stocked with everything we could possibly need (lots of toilet paper, soap, etc.). Mary Anne is a very professional & gracious owner and returned our security deposit so promptly! Would love to stay at the house again! Thanks Mary Anne!

This is the 3rd time we rented Mary Ann's house. The location is great. In the middle of the Quarter but not on a street that never sleeps. Great place for 2-4 couples depending on how good of friends you are. Patio is cozy and a great place to sit and have a glass of wine.

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I just returned from this beautiful place in NoLa celebrating his 50th birthday. We could not have asked for anything better. We were able to walk anywhere we needed to go. The house is beautifully decorated and the owners were very helpful in assisting us with recommendations, etc. We are going to return! (hopefully every year)
