About the Property

Larger than it looks. Brimming with charisma & walking distance to all the fun!

This bright space is 800 s.f. of the Caribbean charm hidden away in the heart of the Marigny--which puts it pretty much close to everything. The bustling, up-and-coming St Claude Avenue is one and a half blocks away. The Avenue is alive with funky dive bars, art galleries, junk and thrift shops, and even theatres. Coffee shops are all around! And eateries of all kinds seem to pop up over night.

The entire rest of the Crescent City is easily at hand. We are 10 walkable blocks from the French Quarter.

Mardi Gras? The Season begins just 3 blocks from here with the irreverent Krewe de Vieux and ends in the same spot with the Ste. Anne Walking Parade--where EVERYONE is in the Krewe and the bar is set sky high for costuming!

Jazz Fest? French Quarter Fest? Chaz Fest? Oyster Fest? VooDoo Fest? It seems that we have parades, 2nd lines and festivals one after the other in close formation. Or maybe you’re here for a convention. There are oodles of them here every year. The CBD is just minutes away by cab or Uber.

Restaurants abound. From funky/trendy to 4 star: running the gamut from run-down-your-arm juicy poboys, thick gumbos and firey crawfish boils to the finest dining at Commanders and Bayona: from Baccanal at the far-end-elbow of the Bywater to Maurapas or The Three Muses on Frenchman Street. But even in this lush landscape, it’s sometimes just right to eat at “home”. You’ll have a spacious, fully equipped kitchen here to rustle up a home-made meal. With the Food Co-op just a block away, you can conveniently “make groceries” for whatever inspires you.

We’ll have information on all the above including plantations and swamp tours and everything in between available when you arrive.


ABOUT THE SPACE:

You’ll just enter through the green security gate with coded entry, walk down the lighted drive to find your "home-away-from-home" with a deck in the back corner of our good-sized back yard. The entire colorful house is yours. With 800 cozy square feet, you’ll have one bedroom and one bath with a large kitchen/eating area, living room, front porch plus a deck for morning coffee or that last cocktail before you call it a day. This out-of-sight hideaway can be just the reprieve you need from the abundant action of the Crescent City.

Parking is on the street and rarely an issue. If you don’t feel like walking (which is a great choice), bicycles can be rented in several places nearby (a great way to get around the city). Buses are found on St Claude and
Lyft or Uber are only an app away. We are thrilled that the new North Rampart street car line is only 5 blocks away and it will get you all over town for a song.

The large back yard is shared with us. We live on site in the historic front house. We have a workshop across the space from you and we have two dogs who will keep us company. They do not come into the cottage and they are never outside without us. Chances are that you will meet them! If you’re not a “dog person” another spot would probably be a better fit for you. The entire outside area is well kept and, depending on the time of year, filled with foliage and greenery.

A laundry shed is located behind our house and we are happy to share it with you.

Smoking on the deck and the covered patio is acceptable.

YOUR HOSTS:

Your hosts are two sisters. Stephanie has an extensive and creative background in antiques and furniture refinishing while Marna has been busy for years rehabbing as much of the historic architecture in New Orleans as she can manage. While we’ll give you your space and privacy, we ARE on hand with hopefully helpful information--or help--if needed.

Funky dive-bars and craft cocktail watering holes are plentiful and within walking distance. Restaurants from fine dining (The Country Club, Feelings), BBQ (The Joint), to the uniquely quirky (Lost Love Lounge), Middle Eastern (Cafe Istanbul)...you name it. It's all here. Night life litters St Claude Av and the local gold standard of Frenchman Street is plentifully at hand. Art galleries. Even two theatres (offering small presentations, slam poetry and The Goodnight show) are up the block.
