This charming and private Garden District Guest Cottage provides the perfect setting to relax after a day of exploration or a night of world class music, food and drink!
Located just 3 blocks from the St. Charles Avenue streetcar, which takes you to the French Quarter in under 15 minutes, and only 2 blocks from well known Magazine Street shops and restaurants you won't find a better place to call home while enjoying a memorable New Orleans experience.
What to expect from the Cottage
Pass through our gate into a tropical courtyard that is tucked away behind the main house. There you will find your private entrance to your free-standing guest house. Inside will be a newly renovated space with antique wood-tone tiled floors; gabled ceiling; kitchen; full bath; and open plan dining room/living room with leather furnishings, table for two, and HDTV.
Direct TV, Wifi, central air and heat. Just outside your door you'll be surrounded by tropical foliage and the tranquil sound of our waterfall - truly an Oasis for your morning coffee or afternoon libations in the garden!
This apartment is available year round, and is IDEALLY suited for Mardi Gras! Being so close to the parade route allows you to return during the day between parades, and at any time to use the 'facilities'. Believe it - having access to a bathroom during Mardi Gras is a very big deal.
The Cottage is secured by a numeric entry code system - you get your own unique access code. Plus there are video cameras throughout the property for additional security. And, we also have a neighborhood private security force that regularly patrols the area - so you are assured of your safety.
Parking and transportation
There is plenty of free, safe, public parking on the street and most guest find they don't need a car once they arrive as you can walk to St. Charles Ave and Magazine St. in under 5 minutes. We also get excellent Uber and Lift service, and can recommend a private driver if you wish.
With the The Warehouse/Arts District and French Quarter in one direction and Uptown, Zoo, Tulane and Loyola Universities in the other there is always something interesting just a few minutes away.
