About the property

Lovely late 1800' s cottage .Old New Orleans charm in a great location!

Come chill in the sitting pool!! This private house has one private bedroom and a comfortable fold out sofa in the living room. There is a nice size kitchen , with a cozy gas fireplace. It opens on to a gorgeous courtyard with a sitting pool. All new renovation , but old world charm remains. It is in a great location .. Within walking distance to the Marigny, Bywater and the French Quarter. There are a variety of bars, restaurants and coffee shops near by. Best of all, the new-opened St. Roch Market is just steps away!

Perfectly in the middle of everything NOLA

  • 5 of 5

Man... great location. Great hosts. A great little house, next to a great little market, a great little walk from everything great.

Cute and clean and comfortable. Tom and Ann are terrific — they accommodated our flights and let us keep our bags at the house, suggested great transportation to and from the airport (Carolyn is fantastic!)... they even popped a few beers in the fridge and snacks in the kitchen. The courtyard is super cute — we soaked our feet in the little pool after every day of walking around.

Keep in mind... we like to walk around a lot, but here's the lay of the land:

-St. Roch Market is right around the corner, with all kinds of delicious foods and beverages. The oysters were a perfect late-ish night snack.

-Frenchman Street is just a few blocks away.

-Go a little further and you're in the thick of the French Quarter.

-Go the other direction and you're in Bywater.

-And if walking isn't your thing, the street car is just down the street, or there are lots of other transportation options (taxi, uber, lyft, etc.) to get you to Treme, City Park, Garden District, Downtown or wherever your Cajun heart leads you.

All in all, it was a really great trip. For people like us who like to explore, the location was everything. We're looking forward to coming back.

Quaint spot away from hustle of bourbon

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. Quick uber anywhere we needed to go. Short walking distance to some cool little bars and restaurants. Great house, clean and had some sweet touches that added to the overall experience. Snacks, beer, coffee and toiletries. So much better than a hotel, in my opinion. Will recommend to everyone and stay here again!

Hugely charming - great location!

  • 4 of 5

Can't beat the location, particularly the proximity to the St. Roch Market, streetcar, and beautiful walk to the Quarter. Homey touches (handmade soap, coffee, and beers/snacks to get you started) were a great welcome! Bed was very soft - I liked it but my husband didn't - but everything else was great. Pack comfortable shoes and some pennies to play with the ghost, and laissez le bon temps rouller! :D

NOLA Charm

  • 5 of 5

The owners were gracious, generous and lovely to chat with! The cottage was comfortable and perfect for the two of us staying for almost a week. A climate controlled and lovely place to land after a day touring the city and having delicious food/drinks. St Roch Market has food for everyone including vegan options! Those who like to walk will find lots of places are within 20-30 minutes and a quick Uber/taxi ride will get you to all the fun and exciting places in the Quarter and beyond.

We loved the property. Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, so much NOLA character. Tom and Ann are very easy to work with, and even left us some welcome beverages and snacks when we arrived. The house was equipped with everything we needed! The courtyard is perfect for sitting outside in the evenings with a beverage. If it was warmer this trip I would've gotten into the soaking pool! Just across the street from St Roch Market, with so many food options. While not really walking distance from the French Quarter, it's a short drive...we used Uber, and it was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay, and would absolutely stay here again next time!

A Great Place to Stay In NOLA

  • 5 of 5

This is a classic, comfortable cottage tucked away in a lovely neighborhood. The living room, full kitchen, and comfy bedroom make it seem like home. The back door opens onto a lovely courtyard in which to while away a hot NOLA afternoon or listen to the sounds of an approaching thunderstorm in the evening. The soaking pool offers a refreshing escape from the heat. There are great restaurants and music venues just a short walk away through charming neighborhoods. The French Quarter is also an easy walk. Tom and Ann, the owners who live next door, are generous with their knowledge and responsive to any inquiries. Like New Orleans itself, this is a quaint, charming, comfortable place to visit that makes you feel very, very welcome.

This adorable cottage is within walking distance to the Marigny , Bywater, Frenchman Street and the French Quarter. There are a number of neighborhood bars in easy walking distance, some of which also serve food, such as Arabella Casa di Pasta (at Cajun's) and Kukhnya (at Siberia), and the brand new St. Roch market is right around the corner! (See last 2 pictures) Fattoush restaurant is one block away, located in the New Orleans Healing Center which houses the New Orleans food co-op, a health club ($15 for one day pass, less for multiples) yoga studio ($17 for one day pass), and other shops.... just three short blocks to Marie's Bar (one of New Orleans finest bloody Mary's ) and a short walk to Mimi's, Feelings Cafe, Faubourg Wines and several cool coffee shops, to mention a few things.

The cottage is newly beautifully renovated. It is a true New Orleans beauty with all modern amenities.. There are high ceilings , ceiling fans and hard wood floors. Stainless steel appliances, fabulously comfy pillow top mattress , flat screen tv's, cable and wireless internet. There is a gas fireplace and the cottage opens onto a beautiful serene court yard with a lovely 'cocktail' pool .. Great for sitting, relaxing and cooling off . Washer and dryer on premises , as well as Lulu and Buddha .. 2 sweet hens that may provide fresh eggs if the timing is right.

This cottage is cozy .. The bedroom is separate and private.. ( not a 'shotgun') . There is a queen size bed and a big window and a closet.. In the living room there is a nice queen size fold out couch with a thick mattress and springs.

This is a truly wonderful place to be your home away from home while you are in are in this fabulous 'City of New New Orleans!'
