About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


NOTE: We now have a very friendly and beautiful marbled Bengal cat. His name is Ti-Ti (tee-tee). If you have pet allergies, please let us know so we can keep him inside during the day. He loves to sleep on the bench underneath the porch.

Located just three short blocks from the French Quarter on Pauger Street, this Creole cottage, built in 1829 has a total of four SPACIOUS rooms. A feature of Creole cottages is that there are NO HALLWAYS, and all rooms are connected. Street parking is available but we cannot always guarantee it.

The first room features a queen-size sofa sleeper which provides extra sleeping space. The original 186 year old long leaf pine floors have been refinished to add to the beauty of the place. There are 2 little reading/conversation areas, and a nice fluffy shaggy rug. A new window unit with both AC/heat controls will keep the room cozy all year round.

The second room is the large bedroom with a tall king-size bed, armoire, bedside tables, cable TV, bedside rugs and the same beautiful flooring. The third room has a round dining table/chairs, an iMAC (with wireless connection) and a small reading nook.


The kitchen is a bright green color to "wake you up" in the morning. Small appliances (toaster/oven, microwave and coffeemaker) are furnished along with coffee and tea. The full-size stainless steel refrigerator has an icemaker. The kitchen sink has built-in drain boards and has been stripped down to the original finish.

The bathroom's tile floor and shower have just been redone. Toiletries and towels, along with bathrobes will be provided. A hair dryer is part of those amenities.

Outside the kitchen is a private courtyard with lush tropicals, table and chairs, and a large private hot tub. THE TUB IS FOR PAYING GUESTS ONLY - NO EXCEPTIONS.

Being part of our home, this SMOKE FREE/CANDLE FREE rental unit is ADULT ONLY (Gay Owned, Straight Friendly). ALL PERSONS MUST BE 25 YEARS OR OLDER. SORRY, WE CANNOT ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN.

What makes this apartment unique

In a quiet neighborhood, you can enjoy your privacy in the courtyard surrounded by lush tropicals. Hear the trickling water of the fountain as you relax in the serene surroundings. AND, meet TiTi, our Bengal cat. He's way too friendly, but don't pick him up. Just pet him, and he'll flip to his back so you can pet his belly.

Perfect house, hosts and location

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed by our wonderful hosts, Ron and Mark. They were available to answer any questions we had and offered great advice on where to go and what to do. Their kindness showed when they brought us an umbrella when it was raining and chairs for the jazz fest

The pictures that are posted do not do the house justice. It is much bigger than we anticipated and had the wonderful charm of New Orleans. The back courtyard was perfect for early morning coffee or a place to just hang out and relax. The hot tub was a wonderful great addition.

We couldn't have asked for a better location. 2 blocks from Frenchman St and 3 or 4 blocks from the French Quarter. Beautiful neighborhood

If you're planning a trip to New Orleans do not look any further for a place to stay. You won't be disappointed.

Charm of the past, conveniences of the present

  • 5 of 5

This was by far my favorite place I have ever stayed in New Orleans. Ron and Mark have made this place really special. You can tell it is not just a rental property for them that's something that they really put their heart into. The cottage is really beautifully decorated and maintained. You will be walking distance or Streetcar from anything you might need in the New Orleans French Quarter region. Thank you Ron and Mark for making this the best stay we've had in New Orleans we will definitely be back to your cottage.

Roomy place with high ceilings. Great king size bed - very comfortable. Ron gave us a great overview of the area. This was a great location for exploring the French Quarter and the Maringy.

Great location, feels like home

  • 5 of 5

How can you not enjoy staying in a place with a story yet offers all of the conveniences of home? Ron met us, gave us insights into the area, the history of the place, where to eat, he is a great host! No surprises here. The place is immaculate! You are not going to be cooking (why would you, you are in New Orleans!) but having the refrig. microwave, toaster and coffee maker makes for leisurely mornings or late nights.

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking! Speechless! Fun and Fabulous! Ron and Mark’s place, is generous on space and amenities!

Pauger St. is historically Bourbon St. and is just outside the French Quarter in an upbeat neighborhood called Marigny. Blocks away from Frenchman Street, a short walk to the French Quarter, a few more blocks to the CBD. You can just as easily Uber or Street Car to may locations too.

Leave your worries and your toiletries at home. Ron and Mark provide premium brand shampoo, conditioner, body wash, makeup removing pads, dish soap and hypoallergenic laundry soap. You can also expect to enjoy lush, plush and sent free linens; pillows, sheets, blankets, towels and robes. Now for the king size bed, the mattress is so good I was highly tempted to look at the tag and order the same one for our home. There is a cable TV in the bedroom, an apple computer in the dining room and free wifi access. The bathroom has been recently updated. While rich in history, the entire cottage is immaculate. The decor is warm and eclectic; Modern French Country with New Orleans flare and pops of color.

I referred to the front room as the Library, it is a great spot to have a conversation, catch a nap or read a book. You will find umbrellas behind the front door, these guys have literally thought of everything! The courtyard is extremely private, it has a patio set and a hottub for cottage guests only.

We ate out for all of our meals; we did however enjoy the locally roasted coffee and Brita provided by the hosts. Ron and Mark provide a list of suggested places to dine and neighborhood maps. Some of our favorite meals included breakfast at Horns, lunch at Tahyo and dinners at The Chophouse and GW Fins.

We enjoyed our stay living like a local King and Queen knowing that the guys were available as needed. Ron and Mark are true to their motto “We won’t bother you, but you won’t be a bother to us”. While out to dinner on one of the colder nights during our stay we received a text from Ron and Mark to let us know they turned on the heat and put an extra plush blanket on our bed. Personal attention to detail and comfort that could never be obtained from a hotel.

Cheers to Ron and Mark for their gracious hospitality, this is one trip we will never forget! Looking forward to our next stay, Andi and Ian

Amazing stay in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin. First of all, Ron and Mark couldn't have been more kind and accommodating. They really know how to make their guests feel welcome, and their knowledge of the area is spot on. They provide maps and restaurant suggestions. It is literally a 5 minute walk before you enter the quarter, directly on bourbon street. However, the neighborhood is nice and quiet, and Frenchman street, the less obnoxious area of bars, is also 2 minutes away. The home is gorgeous, much bigger than we had anticipated. We will specifically come back to stay here when we are with small groups. It's a great place for couples. They don't allow anyone under 25 to stay, which is great because it has kept the property in excellent condition, and makes it much more enjoyable for adults. There is a private hot tub and court yard in the back. Could not recommend them more highly!
