About the property

Suite 1 bedroom and 1 Bath. Sleeps 1 Couple Maximum

In the luscious garden of a gated home, in the middle of the city, across the splendid Coliseum Square and it’s waterfall lulling you to sleep lies this wonderful garden home.

We have carefully thought out every detail to provide luxurious a, comfortable living in this gracious garden home. The 400 sq ft studio converted into a large elegant and comfortable suite for 2 is equipped with a queen-size mattress with luxury cotton linens, full bath with shower and all linens and toiletries supplied. A cook’s kitchen supplied with all basics and more, all new appliances, washer/dryer and HD flat TV.

Nestled in a beautifully landscaped courtyard with fruit trees, scented trees, and flowers and sculptures by local metal artists. Have your morning coffee seated in one of the several sitting and leisure areas throughout, while enjoying this extraordinaire courtyard or lay in the hammock in the lazy afternoon, under the palm tree before heading back to the active city.

It is a gated refuge nestled in the vibrant Lower Garden District. Located across from the magnificent Coliseum Square Park and intimately connected to everything... the mansions and gardens of the Lower and Garden District, the Arts and Warehouse District with all the museums, art galleries and finest restaurants, the adorned tree-lined boulevard of St. Charles and it's famous Streetcar.

Shopping at Magazine Streets, antique shops, art galleries, bespoke clothiers, artisan jewelers, potters, coffee shops and fine eateries is just blocks away.

Second Line Studios is at walking distance.

The French Quarter and shopping of Royal, Riverwalk and Canal Place, the Convention Center and the Port of New Orleans are within a mile, all walk-able.

About Matilde Alberny

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.

Matilde Alberny purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Matilde Alberny chose New Orleans

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

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Clean and comfortable. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Matilde's guest house. We stayed for 5 nights in May. The accomodations were very comfortable and private. Matilde and Gustavo were wonderful hosts. We did mot see much of them but definitely felt we could contact them with any questions. We would definitely stay again.

Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental is perfect for a New Orleans weekend getaway. My husband and I travel frequently to New Orleans to visit our daughter. We have stayed in many hotels as well as rental properties and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice this time! Matilde and Gustavo were so warm and welcoming throughout the entire weekend. The location is perfect for those who are visiting for the weekend or enjoying a longer stay. We were able to walk to neighboring Magazine Street for food and shopping. It is also within a few blocks of St. Charles if you want to take the streetcar either to the French Quarter or Uptown. We had a car for the weekend and parking was easily available on the street in front of their house. We would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to New Orleans!

Great courtyard getaway close to the Convention Center and Garden District Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little bungalow for the price. It was within a short walk to the convention center and right around the corner from all the Garden District attractions. There was a wonderful coffee shop a block away and lots of great restaurants and shops. The hosts were very nice and made sure I had everything I needed when I checked in. I will bring my husband next time and have a nice weekend getaway.

Tranquil get away

  • 5 of 5

I loved the cottage! It was very comfortable, relaxing and clean. Matilde was excellent to work with too. She quickly responded to any questions we had and I loved the adorable cats in the courtyard! :) I would stay here again if I was back in New Orleans. Oh...and the location is awesome! Very close to all the shops and restaurants on Magazine Street.
