About Liz Fritshaw
We have wanted a second home in New Orleans for years , we feel that this neighbourhood is the perfect location, central to everything you need or could possibly want to do, and the peacefulness of a safe residential neighborhood. We extend our home to you because it is too great a spot to not share!
Liz Fritshaw purchased this Bungalow in 2014
Why Liz Fritshaw chose Faubourg Marigny
It's fantastic location! 1 block to Frenchman street which has the best music and food to be found in New Orleans and a 10 minute walk to the French Quarter. Tons of amazing restaurants and shops within the surrounding blocks. Safe and friendly residential neighborhood, that is welcoming to everyone! We love the Marigny Bywater area for it's creative and energetic vibe! Lots of artists, musicians, writers and painters.
What makes this Bungalow unique
This 1840's cottage is full of history and charm AND has all the right updates! 12 foot ceilings and lots of windows make it bright and inviting. The great floor plan gives privacy to the sleeping quarters yet an open floor plan in the living areas, making it a cozy and welcoming home!

Belle maison bien équipée mais trop bruyante
SI VOUS CHERCHEZ LE CALME, LA DÉTENTE, FUYEZ CETTE ADRESSE !! Située entre un bar ouvert 24h/24 et un caviste avec petite terrasse ouvert tard la nuit et à deux maisons de l'avenue Saint Claude où passent de nombreux véhicules à tout heure, les nuisances sonores sont particulièrement gênantes. J'avais beau y être pendant 10 jours pendant la période de Mardi Gras du 7 au 16 février 2018, ce n'est pas la raison principale de ce bruit nocturne. J'en ai personnellement discuté avec le propriétaire de la cave à vin qui m'a confirmé que c'était comme cela toute l'année et j'ai pu constater qu'il s'agissait bien de locaux et non de touristes qui étaient dehors toute la nuit. Pour avoir séjourné deux rues plus loin, la différence de bruit est ÉNORME. Évitez absolument la chambre coté rue, beaucoup trop bruyante . En revanche, la maison est bien équipée, des chambres (literie), à la cuisine, aux salles de bain et le séjour. Le canapé convertible du séjour n'est pas adapté aux adultes car matelas trop léger mais c'était parfait pour notre fils de 7 ans. Profitez de la belle petite terrasse en période de soleil. Petit souci de propreté que j'ai fait remarquer tout de suite à la propriétaire. Nous avons aussi trouvé le frigo rempli, c'est bien gentil pour les locataires précédents, mais de quand datent les produits qui s'y trouvaient... ? Mystère donc évitez d'en manger ou boire, on ne sait jamais. Nous aurions préféré que le frigidaire soit vidé avant notre arrivée. Possibilité de se garer gratuitement devant la maison, coté maison, sans trop de souci même en période de Mardi Gras. A noter que la propriétaire Liz, répond rapidement à vos mails.

We are so disappointed that you felt the house was under par. I feel badly that you were so disturbed by the noise from the bar and street noise (cars etc). I honestly feel that Mardi Gras was a big factor - the locals celebrate as much or even more than the visitors!
I stay at the house regularly during weeknights and weekends and have not had much issue with noise. It usually doesn't carry on every night or go on all night. For sure the front bedroom hears it more than the back bedroom.
Please check our other reviews to see what other guests have found (in 67 reviews we have 9- 4 star and 57- 5 star) regarding the local tavern and the wine bar. If you are reading this please don't hesitate to send us a note for more robust details about the bar / tavern and noise.
Great rental property for our NOLA vacation
Nice and well-appointed rental home . Perfect for our family. Wonderful accommodations in a centrally located area just a couple blocks away from the French Quarter, restaurants, drugstore, great thrift shops, Frenchmen Street... all within walking distance. We all enjoyed our stay very much period immediately comfortable with the property. Very cozy and a safe neighborhood with free Street parking right out front. The only thing that maybe negative for someone is a bit of noise late at night from a pub on the corner. This is an easy fix by leaving some music playing or earplugs. Was not a problem for us as we are late night people ourselves. We even found beads and masks to wear to the pre Mardi Gras parade. Thanks to Liz for the lovely accommodations. We will recommend this place to friends and hope to be back again ourselves.
Thanks for the kind words. This is a great tip for lighter sleepers in the front bedroom (music playing). I am going to add a note to the welcome book with this suggestion!
Great place close to all the action!
This place is a great little home away from home. It's situated in a residential neighborhood, relatively quiet at night, but only a block away from some great breakfast/pastry shops and a couple of blocks away from both Frenchman St. and the French Quarter. It's also a half block away from the streetcar stop and the 88 bus if you want to veer away from the Quarter and get to know the rest of the city.
A word of caution: The upstairs/third bedroom should only be used by somebody young and healthy though - the stairs are quite treacherous and difficult to maneuver. This was fine as we had my younger brother with me. There's a nice balcony up there but we had our parents with us as well who couldn't navigate the steep/slick stairway.
I would definitely recommend staying here - it's the perfect location to go out and explore the city!
Perfect home in perfect location
We had a wonderful time at this home. Liz is the most accommodating owner we have ever dealt with. Plenty of room for 2 couples and so close to everything.
Lovely home with charm and modern conveniences in a great location!
Our family of 5 comes to New Orleans every year for Thanksgiving and this house was our favorite by far! The charm and New Orleans classic style was evident throughout the home but modern updates and high end kitchen and bathrooms made it the perfect place for us. It was well stocked with kitchen and laundry basics, soft linens and TV’s with Roku in each bedroom and the living room. The loft with patio was a great getaway for our teenager and a spot quiet reading for me. The neighborhood is safe, cute and a quick walk to the French Quarter. We hope to make this house our home away from home every year when we come back to New Orleans. Thank you, Liz for your attention to detail and for being so easy to contact with questions. We LOVED your Bohemian Bungalow!!
We are so glad you enjoyed the house and your stay... please come stay with us again anytime!
3 Blocks to the French Quarter, but don't just stop there:
We are only 1 block to Frenchman Street!
A little history:
The most famous and frequently visited section of Frenchmen Street is a short section in the Marigny neighborhood, just down river from the French Quarter. This area was once the plantation of a wealthy Creole born man who made the dice game Craps popular in America. He influenced the city of New Orleans with his joie de vivre–or a keen enjoyment of living– and extravagance. In 1806 his property was subdivided. The area of Frenchman Street in the Marigny neighborhood slowly developed into a happening block with a mix of a unique European flair and cosmopolitan feel.
Now, Frenchmen Street is the thriving epicenter of New Orleans music, culture, and food. The street’s eclectic mix of people, clubs, restaurants, and venues come together like a gumbo to form one of the most energetic and vibrant cultural hot spots in the entire world.
Come to Frenchmen Street to immerse yourself with the locals, and have an experience of New Orleans that you will never forget!
