The living room also has the same brick wall as well as a gas fireplace, leather furniture which seats six and a flat screen TV, It also features a large closet and the futon converts to an extra long full bed.
The upstairs bedroom has a luxurious queen bed, old pine floors, large flat screen TV, lots of closet space, a gas fireplace, and a beautiful newly renovated exquisitely tiled bathroom, with over-sized bathtub.
All the French Quarter has to offer is located just out the front doors. To the right Bourbon Street is 2 blocks away. The Next block is Royal St. One more block and you will find yourself in the Historical Jackson Square. Cross Decatur Street and find yourself steps from the Mighty Mississippi River, with its beautiful views of the West Bank, Mississippi River Bridge, and downtown New Orleans.
Out the front door In the other direction, just over half a block away, you'll discover beautiful Armstrong park. with its gorgeous sunsets, quaint bridges, beautiful tropical plantings, excellent sculptures,and a tranquil pond complete with ducks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: This cottage has been my home my for the past 24 years. Last year I relocated to the Gulf Coast. I Fully renovated the Creole Rose with both you and me in mind.. New Orleans has captivated my heart, and will forever be my home. I invite you to make it yours for the duration of your stay. Enjoy it, make it your own. My art collection and some of my fondest memories are there. Along with a book of my favorite places, things to do, and what not to miss. I have tried to make everything self explanatory, but if you need anything I am but a phone call away. When you depart you may Strip the beds if you like, but it is in no way required. Just please make sure all the trash is taken out to the sidewalk in sealed bags before you leave. Place them in a trashcan if there is one nearby. I want you to have a wonderful time And the whole place including the lush Courtyard invites you to do just that. I only that you be considerate of the neighbors while doing so. Just a warning If your get together sounds like you're having too much fun, they may want to join you. It is New Orleans after all. And if they are having a party feel free to crash it, I'm sure I have in the past.. If it's there it's for you to use, whether it be to wear, eat, drink, cook with, bath with, whatever unless it has someone's name or do not use written on it, it is for your use. I only ask that you replace it with something else. If you don't want to, or don't have a chance to, there is the 'Pay it Forward' Box. Just slip some cash in there. Whatever you feel is fair in exchange for what you have used. Have a great time.

Why the Owner Chose French Quarter, New Orleans, LA, USA:
It is a real French Quarter home with all the conveniences even parking. It's ready and waiting to give you a Behind The Scenes Look at New Orleans that you would never otherwise realize.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
My artwork, collected, from over 24 years of Jazz Fests, local artist, and world my travels. Not to mention One of the loveliest courtyards in the French Quarter. Just steps from Tranquil Armstrong Park.
