About The Owner

This is a family business. The building was showcased in New Orleans magazine. Built in 1846, it was never cut up into smaller apartments. We take great pride in the fact that it is the gateway to Frenchmen Street. The smallest apartment is 1800 sq. ft. and the largest is 4300 sq. ft. In total, there are 6 apartments. We ask that you respect our property and please respect the full time tenants. Also, no large parties allowed.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1995

Why The Owner chose Faubourg Marigny

I didn't choose, it was a family choice. Basically I love the place. Frenchmen Street is so unique. The coolest thing is I have 2 kids but I feel so secure. We take them to Spotted Cat! Other people may not like the vibe, but it is central to all things JAZZ. Believe it or not, even though it is loud in the evenings, I think it's a great spot for families as the kids can sleep and you can enjoy sitting on the balcony sipping a cocktail. It's a great location and central to everything. The cable car to uptown is a block away, The Mint is across the street, The French Market is a block away.

What makes this apartment unique

Believe it or not, New Orleans is family friendly! We found the aquarium,the Audobon Zoo and Children's Museum. The best part is being right in the action!Frenchmen Street is the place to be,If you want to listen to jazz. Spotted Cat is a block away, Maison is next door, Check Point Charlies is next door. Frenchmen street is not known for being a quiet area, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, you may find uptown more suitable.

Good location, walking distance from everything.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable. Felt at home. Clean. Didn't use many dishes but it had a choice. The lighting through out the entire place was dim, so at night it was hard to see.

Liked the balcony, fun to sit and watch the party go on below.

Good location!

We liked Vaso (bar downstairs)the music is loud and goes late, but if you love live music, this is perfect location! So close to walk everywhere, lots of restaurants close by.

We would stay there again.

The Balcony!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and beautiful on the inside as well. Being able to hang out on the HUGE balcony over Frenchmen St. was amazing morning, noon, and night. It was everything we had hoped it would be. Bring a fan with you if you are a warm sleeper, with the large windows it does seem to be hard to keep cool. Samantha was wonderful and answered all of my silly questions upon arrival. Great spot, we will hopefully be able to come back and stay next year for the Fried Chicken Festival!

Good location HUGE balcony

  • 4 of 5

The location is good if you want to be in the jazz district. 15 minute walk to bourbon. The balcony is HUGE. The one downfall is a couple of bugs entered the home due to some of the cracks in the balcony doors.

Favorite home away from home ever!

  • 5 of 5

This home is incredibly well located and within walking distance of all of the French Quarter "tourist spots". The home is immaculate, extremely spacious & beautifully decorated. The kitchen is stunning and we cooked many meals in here with ease & it became our central congregation area for our group. The dining table is MASSIVE, the bathrooms and closets are HUGE, the rooms are enormous... I would highly recommend this home to anyone I know and I would be begging them to take me with them just so I can sit out on the large balcony one more time and people watch for hours! There is VASO bar just below and if you leave the shutters cracked you can hear live jazz music playing as you fall asleep. If I could give this home 10 stars, I would!

Utterly charming & practical!

  • 5 of 5

With 4 teenagers, myself, & husband- trying to find a place to accommodate our needs for a Spring Break trip wasn't easy...this home was ideal! Well appointed, spacious, clean, and perfect location. The owner was wonderful to work with and was extremely responsive if I had a question. We loved the wrap around porch- it was ideal for people watching! The location couldn't be better- close enough to walk all over the French Quarter, and yet not right in the middle of the madness. We will absolutely stay here again, it made our vacation even better.
