About the property

Fully-licensed, Unique, Upscale Inn Now Available For Whole-House Rentals

Located at the foot of world-famous Bourbon Street, our property has among the best locations in New Orleans. Walk out the front door and you're two blocks from Frenchmen Street's jazz clubs, three blocks from the French Market and Mississippi River, four blocks from the clubs/restaurants of Bourbon Street, and short walks to dozens of other attractions, eateries and lounges. No car necessary, here!

Our home is a 4 bedroom/4 bath upscale property on a quiet block of Bourbon Street. (Yes, such things DO exist!) Mostly residential but so close to everything!! Each bedroom features a queen bed, private bath, luxury linens both in room and bath, upscale furnishings, high ceilings with fans, central air/heat, iPod docks, and more.

For many years, we've operated this property exclusively as a B&B prior to entering the whole-house rental market for select dates.

The luxury of this property doesn't stop at the house's doors. Step outside in back and you'll find an amazing courtyard with tropical plants, a fountain, wrought iron table for 4 and further seating under the newly-built covered pavilion for 6 more. Groups will find our home the perfect spot from which to see New Orleans and have some great quality time with each other while at the house. Please note that this is an upscale property and we do not cater to bachelor parties. Sorry, guys!

About John Ramsey

Owners are both MBA graduates of Tulane University. Renovated the house in the late 1990s as an award-winning city-licensed B&B and are constantly upgrading and making it even better! We like to travel and extensively use VRBO ourselves.

John Ramsey purchased this house in 1998

Why John Ramsey chose Marigny-Bywater

Location, location, location!!! We've operated as a B&B for 21 years but now want to let guests experience this building with their friends. Guests will have the entire building to themselves!

We're biased, of course, but guests over the years have told us what an amazing location we have. Combine that with a great well-maintained house and you've got a winner. And the house is fully stocked with everything you'll need. We provide the soft turkish cotton towels, the gadget-heavy kitchen, and basics like bath gel, shampoo, hair dryers, etc. We even have a great outdoor courtyard for relaxing!

What makes this house unique

Licensed by the City of New Orleans (#138481) , which is very important as it means we're properly insured and collecting taxes as required by law. Amazing open kitchen with lots of room to congregate. Nice touches like a Ninja blender and Keurig coffee maker, too! Beautiful walled courtyard with tropical plants, fountain and a brand-new pavilion offering covered outdoor seating. Custom linens, Turkish cotton towels, a full range of in-room amenities....not your typical sparse vacation rental room!

Perfect Location - Great House - Accomodating Owner!

  • 5 of 5

4 couples spent the weekend of the August flood at John's great house on Bourbon Street. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations and location of this property. It is set up great with the kitchen (always the main focal point with quests) that overlooks the beautiful courtyard out back. The rooms were all good sized. It truly was a great stay. We will be back!

Thanks for a wonderful reunion for 8 sorority sisters from all parts of the U.S. and England. The house was perfect, especially the backyard patio. Very clean, well appointed and within walking distance of major attractions, restaurants and stores. I would give this property 10 stars if possible.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $125
Damage Deposit $500

Please note that we will usually guarantee reservations up to 365 days in advance of arrival. We offer discounts for guests willing to pay via check, PayPal, Chase QuickPay, etc. Inquire about these discounts by emailing the owner. It's an easy way to avoid some fees and charges.

We are a city-licensed and properly insured short-term rental establishment so we have to pay taxes and fees to the City of New Orleans. Tax amounts are presented to guests at time of inquiry and are subject to change based on the whims of the Louisiana Legislature! (If ANY property on this site or others claims you owe no taxes, then the property is operating illegally. ALL lodging properties in New Orleans...even if they have only one room... are responsible for state and local taxes.)

First come, first serve for reservations. We accept bookings up to one year in advance.

Here's our cancellation Policy: If Guest wishes to cancel his/her reservation, the initial deposit (50% of room rate) will be refunded as follows:

75% if cancelled at least 90 days prior to the Check-in Date
50% if cancelled 75 days prior to the Check-in Date
The full balance will be charged 60 days prior to the Check-in Date and is non refundable at that point. For late cancellations within 30 days, we will attempt to rebook the unit(s). If we do, guests will receive an 80% refund.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
