Tiny but clean, comfortable and romantic

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. Friendly, colorful, quiet neighborhood. It is a few blocks to the cable car and not far from the French Quarter yet we realized Marigny neighborhood has a lot to offer. We especially liked Silk Road and Marigny Brassiere for dinners and New Orleans Cake Cafe and Press Street Station for breakfast. For live music we loved Maison and The Spotted Cat.

The winding staircase is very narrow and steep - (near hybrid of stairs and a ladder) so that may be challenging or annoying to some (especially to get from bed to bathroom in the middle of the night) but for a few nights stay for us it was fine.

The kitchen is more for heating leftovers in the microwave or making coffee/tea but it is New Orleans. Save your money and EAT OUT. My only regret on that is that we should have sought out cheaper places to eat to as not totally add to the neighborhood gentrification.

Rita was available and friendly when we needed her but otherwise she left us alone which we liked. Look at a map of the trolley before you go and you'll realize how convenient it is to get around.

If you tend to bicker a lot and NEED SPACE in your house frequently from your mate do realize this tiny guesthouse may prove challenging. :-)

Fabulous Garden Studio!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at Rita's delightful garden studio and again it was a great experience! Love the architectural detail of this quaint "tiny house". At the same time you have all the conveniences you need; super comfy bed, A/C, coffee maker and supplies of coffee, sugar, cream, mini fridge for your beer and leftovers, microwave, bathroom supplies, etc. It also is really such a treat to have your own tranquil garden patio that comes with a soothing water feature and resident kitties!

There are soo many great restaurants in NOLA, but a few I would recommend are: Peche for seafood, Mr. B's Bistro for their fabulous BBQ shrimp, Toup's Meatery for the awesome crab claws and amazing meat board, the shrimp Po-boys at both Domilises and Parkway Bakery and Tavern (each different, but great in their own right), St. Roch Market for all kinds of food and drink, nearby Satsuma and Cake Cafe for breakfast, nearby Bachannal for a wonderful outdoor jazz, wine, and food experience, the Turkey and Wolf for excellent sandwiches. As I write this, I am already wanting to go back!

The best way to get around New Orleans is by bike. I highly recommend renting a bike for your whole trip. Alex's Bikes is a great bike shop in walking distance from Rita's on Marigny Street. Alex is super nice and he will set you up with everything you need at an affordable price. Even if you do not want a bike for your whole stay, I would definitely recommend a one day rental. Head up Esplanade to City Park, where there is wonderful biking , beautiful nature, the Art Museum, the superb (and free) Sculpture Garden, and the best coffee and beignets at Morning Call Cafe.

If you have a rental car (only recommend if you want to do day trips out of the city) I recommend a day trip south to the Barataria Preserve to for a lovely hike in the swamps and marshlands, and a day trip north to Abita Springs where you can explore the quirky Mystery House, visit the Abita Brewery, and then enjoy more nature on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain on your way back at beautiful Fontainebleau State Park.

You can enjoy all of this and so much morewith Rita's as your ideal home base away from home!

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Charming little cottage with all necessary. Walking distance to French Quarter and Frenchmen Street. Interesting neighborhood; restaurants, bars, St. Roche Market and even small wine shop not so far. You really don't need a car in New Orleans when staying here.

We were also very lucky since Harvey destroyed rest of our Holiday plans, but thanks to Rita we could enjoy NOLA a bit longer.

Great little cozy guest house.

  • 5 of 5

While small, the guest house had everything we needed and is in a good location to find the good food and music New Orleans is renowned for. The owner was very pleasant and helpful, while leaving us our privacy if we wanted it. I will certainly revisit this place when I return to New Orleans.

Living Large in a Small Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love visiting New Orleans. When she said she showed me this small guest house behind the main house, we decided it looked perfect for us. After spending a week living there, we fell in love with "our cottage" in New Orleans. The place is very clean and has all we needed to enjoy our trip to New Orleans for French Quarter Fest. Downstairs has a bathroom with a shower on one side and a high top table with a small refrigerator and microwave with a kitchen sink.It has all the kitchen and bath essentials you will need. Up the spiral staircase is the bedroom with a very comfortable bed. It cooled down at night, so we opened the large window and enjoy the cool night air. I relaxed outside on our patio next to the Koi pond every morning. Inside and out is decorated with that New Orleans style. Rita is a great host and we really enjoyed our time with her. She is very helpful with all the little extra things like allowing us to do laundry and storing luggage since we had a late flight home. This is a very unique place to stay and we highly recommend it.
