Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I am a real-estate appraiser by profession, and rehab historical properties for fun. This was one of my earliest efforts, and it is a gem. When I bought this property, there were no foundations in any of the walls, no mechanical systems, nothing but a great location and the shells of 3 small, historically significant buildings. We lifted up the buildings, poured foundations, lowered the buildings and rebuilt them from the frames out, using the most appropriate materials that we could find. It was a labor of love. I am a trasplant from California, and JazzFest, 2014 will mark 20 years in NOLA. I came for the music, attending the Fest for several years in a row, and then decided that hey! these folks do this all year 'round; they just invite the rest of the world for JF. I became aware of WWOZ, the best radio station in the universe, Gambit and Offbeat. This place is wired for fun. I love it and will never leave, at least not for good (I like to travel). I have rehabbed 5 historical properties, and now using this one to partially finance my retirement. Now I'm running a dog-training program at St. Gabriel, the only women's prison in Louisiana, teaching inmates to train rescued shelter dogs for wounded-warriors with PTSD. Ain't life great?

Why the Owner Chose New Orleans, LA, USA:
This property is as New Orleans as it gets. Why come to New Orleans to stay in a hotel that could be in Cleveland (no offense to Cleveland) or any high rise hotel in the country? Why not stay in a piece of New Orleans history? Start your visit as soon as you check into the Mardi Gras Cottages.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a beautiful, peaceful, unique property in walking distance to all the excitement and fun in the French Quarter. After a day of sight-seeing and music and fun and inbibing all that NOLA has to offer, come home to a private, serene place where you can recharge your batteries before venturing out again, while still soaking up the ambience of New Orleans. Save money by using the full kitchen for some meals, and put your restaurant leftovers in the fridge for future reference. Even use the free laundry so you don't have to go home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes! Pet friendly.
