About Monika and Karl
We both grew up in this neighborhood. We love this house and our neighbors, and it shows. :) We LOVE all things New Orleans and especially Mardi Gras! We bought a home (with this apartment on the property) on the Mardi Gras Day parade route for this expressed purpose. The parades literally happen at the end of the driveway! But that's not all there is to do in New Orleans. NOLA is full of festivals, culture, architecture and food, glorious FOOD! We know all the best places. :)
Monika and Karl purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Monika and Karl chose Uptown
This property is beautiful, private, and close to great food in a walkable neighborhood. The Creole Cottage is close to everything you want to do. It's close enough to the Quarter (10 min drive) for easy access, but without the constant barrage of partying. We are close to Audubon Park, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Freret St, St Charles Avenue streetcar... If you are looking for a real, walkable, neighborhood experience, this is the place for you. Please see our other unit on this property, VRBO #566006, if you have a larger group and all want be close together.
What makes this Cottage unique
Most uniquely, this property is on the Mardi Gras Day parade route and 5 blocks from most other parades of the season. No port-o-potties for you! No long food lines or driving to and from a parade! Just stay here and relax.

Book with Confidence
My wife and I visit NOLA every few months and typically stay in a hotel near the Quarter. This time, we though we'd try something different, so we book this cottage. It's basically a detached studio apartment behind the main house in a cool neighborhood. It has a queen bed, futon, kitchen, and bathroom. It was quiet and we felt that it was a safe area. There is street parking available. There are tons of restaurants within walking distance, so we took advantage of those several evenings. I'd suggest Sarita's Grill if you like Cuban food. The steak dinner and strawberry margarita's were awesome! To go to the quarter, you can drive and find street parking if you look or Uber cars are constantly in the general area and it was about $11 for a trip over.
Our couples trip turned into a family trip at the last minute due to babysitter circumstances, but our hosts, Karl and Monika, were amazing and helped us work it out with some extra bedding and towels and some family friendly sightseeing suggestions. They were very responsive and really great hosts! We will certainly stay here again.
Comfortable, clean, and close to good food!
