Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Greetings! We are Matilde and Gustavo, both visual artists. We came in 1999 to New Orleans for an exhibit of Gustavo and barely few hours later fell irrevocably in love with the city. Gustavo is a well-known artist and regularly shows abroad and other cities of the United States. That is one of the reasons we travel often. We are permanently displayed at Kezic Gallery in the French Quarter We are owners and managers of our property. We like to personally greet our visitors if possible. We are attentive to all of our guests needs and inquiries but understand that we are not part of the planned vacation. We are available if needed.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Garden District, New Orleans, LA, USA:
In the Lower Garden District we found the perfect mélange of village, rural laissez faire and city life and entertainment. A walk in the afternoon by Magazine Street or hearing the fountain of the Coliseum Square at night is enough to fall in love over and over again. We are in the middle of the city, in our own little gorgeous oasis

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The charm of our garden, the smells of the trees, Noche and Amber, both fixed cats live in the yard. Enjoying this peace is a luxury.
