About the property

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

One word for this place... (ok... maybe 3 or 4): Hip, Best Location, True New Orleans Living. It is perfection!

Let's take one thing at a time.

Hip: We decorated this condo for maximum comfort and feeling like you are in a bright, beautiful and welcoming home. Lots of local art and comfortable furniture to hang out on. Make yourself a cocktail in front or grill some fresh fish from the Big Fisherman (right there on Magazine) with a cold beer or daiquiri in back. This place is designed for hanging out and feeling like a local.

Best Location: There is no better location in New Orleans. It is quiet and historic, but with everything you need at your fingertips. Watch the parades and walk back to use the bathroom or chill out. Wander through the shops and eat your way through town without needing a cab or a car. This is the Irish Channel... a historical and eclectic neighborhood with all the funk you need within a few blocks. Plenty of parking in front.

True New Orleans Living: Whether you just want to hang out in the condo and read or go listen to brass bands til 3AM, this condo lets you do it all. Your neighbors all live and work in New Orleans and there are very few tourists around. You can truly feel and live like a local.

About The Owner

My husband and I have owned this place since 2005. We renovated the condos and sold them off, keeping one for ourselves as a getaway from grown-up-land. We are excited to share it with you!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose East Riverside

This is our favorite part of New Orleans. It is quiet, eclectic, historic and near everything we love. Walk to the parades or chill out at one of the bars only a few short blocks away.

What makes this house unique

You will feel like a real local. Stuff yourself in one of the incredible restaurants and stagger home for a nice nap in the air conditioning. No matter what time of year, something fun is always happening in New Orleans!

Guestbook comments from the manager

OK. We LOVED this place. It is beautiful. Wood floors, old world feeling, very hip. Magazine street is amazing and right there. We found the kitchen totally fine and great. The back patio is funky and fun and cozy and private. Yay! Definitely coming back.

Perfect NOLA Cottage !!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this cottage for our 5 night stay (combo work/play). It is a great size for 2 adults - and you can easily add 1-2 kids (shared sofa bed). Kitchen works well with 4 burner cook top, microwave, coffee maker, fridge and a nice grill in the YARD! In unit washer/dryer allowed for us to come home with clean clothes! Walking distance to Magazine Street shops and restaurants and only 3 more blocks to the St. Charles streetcar. We actually walked to the convention center daily and to the zoo, WWII museum and the French Quarter. It was great to stay in a real neighborhood with a grocery nearby and friendly neighbors. We cannot stop talking to people about how great this cottage is! Looking forward to a return visit soon.

Cozy, accommodating, and well located.

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed @ the creole cottage for 6 nights (2 adults, 2 kids ages 3 and 6 months). Overall we enjoyed our stay. We stratigically stayed in Magazine street area due to it's proximity to parks, the Zoo, street car etc. We appreciated the furnished pack and play, the back patio and the ease of communication with Jenny. The only negative to name was the need to put away/ organize items that seemed like maintence staffs (paint, tools, and work clothes). Not a huge deal, just not something I necessarily want to do on vacation.

Car: not necessary

This darling condo in a over 100 year old creole cottage (former slaves quarters) has everything you need to stay comfortable for as long as you want. Washer/dryer, wifi, private patio/courtyard with a barbecue... Walk only two blocks to the grocery store and the best restaurants and bars and shopping in town. Walk to Mardi Gras parades, the street car and even the Zoo.
