About Garett

My wife and I live and work in New Orleans and take pride in our house and our city. Our primary goal is to ensure you are comfortable and have a great time in our city. My wife and I created a list of places to visit and recommended restaurants. This list will be on the coffee table. This house is a home. It is comfy, cozy, and of course fully furnished including all of the amenities of a modern home.

Garett purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Garett chose New Orleans

Located in the heart of the Freret neighborhood, conveniently located Uptown New Orleans. Freret Street is nicknamed 'Restaurant Row'. This charming Uptown cottage is only a 5 minute walk to the World Famous Street Car-Line, the longest running streetcar line in the world and recently named a National Historic Landmark. Only minutes from the award winning Audubon Park and Zoo, Tulane and Loyola Universities, and historic St. Charles Ave-New Orleans most famous avenue. Convenience to the Streetcar line offers quick rides to the French Quarter, the Garden District, Central Business District, and Mid-City. Shop, Wine, Dine, & Relax. Walking distance to dozens of restaurants, pubs, mixology bars, live-music venues, pizzerias, cafes, wine emporiums, art galleries, boutique shopping, yoga studios, spas, and grocery stores. Come see for yourself!

Experiencing the grandeur of St. Charles Avenue is one of the things you simply can't miss when visiting New Orleans. Stretching all the way from Downtown to Uptown, St. Charles Avenue is a great way to see many different sides of the city, all along one gorgeous avenue. You can explore St. Charles on foot, by car, or, for $1.25, you can hop on the historic, green St. Charles Streetcar.

What makes this cottage unique

We have two bicycles you can use at your convenience (Upon Request). This is a home away from home with all the modern amenities. The location of this rental is very unique. Its nestled in a quiet neighborhood yet walking distance to anything you need.

Nestled in between 3 organic raised bed gardens, in which you have access to basil, hot peppers, rosemary, mint, onion, and other seasonal veggies & herbs.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I am a Tulane parent that comes down 2-3 times a year. I have stayed at 6-8 different places and this was the best. The house is a short walk to campus, you got to get those 10000 steps a day anyway. The local restaraunts were awesome and truly footsteps away. I have no allure to the French Quarter however. The house itself was perfect for me. Clean, well kept, and a comfy bed. Didn't use the kitchen as I don't come to NOLA to cook but from what I could see there was everything you needed. The only problem with sharing this is wondering whether it will be available in the future. Thanks for an awesome stay. I will be back. Bert K

Lovely Rental cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for Thanksgiving break traveling from Boston with our 1 year old son. On arrival we found a cosy,nicely decorated and clean cottage. Garrett provided a pack and play bed for the little one in the comfortable bedroom and there was plenty room for all of us. There was beer and drinks in the fridge and some snacks which was a nice touch and made us feel welcome. The location was perfect for restaurants, bars and cafes nearby but also nice and peaceful at night. All in all this is a perfect base to visit a great city for a small family or couple.

Great Uptown Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage. The place was ready for us when we arrived. It was extremely clean and very quiet our entire 5 day stay. The bathroom and kitchen were both well equipped, the bed was very comfortabe and our son slept on the pull out couch which worked well for us too. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance which makes this a great hang out. The cottage is close to Loyola and Tulane so it's great for visiting children at college. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a more relaxing space than a hotel.

Fun and convenient rental!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I arrived and was greeted by the host who helped bring our luggage inside. We were amazed once we walked inside the rental. It was spacious, newly renovated, a full fruit bowl, and just generally comfy and cozy. Its in walking distance to shopping, restaurants, cafes, and pubs. We had a great trip and will definitely book this rental again!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at the uptown cottage. We received a warm welcome upon arrival (and a delicious cookie!) Again, we followed our hosts' suggestions regarding restaurants in the Freret St. neighborhood and beyond, and were not disappointed. So many great restaurants just steps away! The cottage was clean, comfortable and cozy. A wonderful retreat from the hustle-bustle of the city. Thank you for the great memories!
