About Monika and Karl

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 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-Carrollton

We both grew up in this neighborhood. We love this house and our neighbors. The cottage is newly online. Please see our other property, VRBO #566006, to check out the reviews on our property and hospitality.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is close to everything you want to do. It's close enough to the Quarter 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.

Great Cottage - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great escape that is close to everything! Easy access to the Trolley, which takes you to the French Quarter within minutes! Great eats and drinks close to the cottage on Freret Street - only a 2 block walk! The cottage was clean and had all of the amenities anyone could want - full kitchen, full bath, sitting area with television, etc. Monika was very helpful and provided information on the Garden District area and other areas like Frenchman. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and relatives. After staying at the Garden District cottage, we will likely not stay in the French Quarter again!

Great Romantic location perfect for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

Monika and Carl couldn't have been nicer and more hospitable. They live on the property and were there to check us in immediately. Upon checking in, we had a quick tour and received a list of great recommendations of all the best local places to visit and eat. After that - it was if you were in your own little cottage for the stay. (Monika did check to see if we needed anything and if we were enjoying our stay every so often!)

It was only a few minutes from downtown and it allowed us to explore everything New Orleans had to offer without necessarily being in the middle of all the 'chaos' that can be Bourbon street.

Highly recommend this location! Loved every minute of this trip.

What a great cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two days in this cottage. Easily walkable to great food, easy to take streetcar to downtown, but felt private and secluded. Well-appointed kitchen, and the whole place was well kept and clean. Monika was super helpful in every way.

Wonderful weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two girlfriends stayed at Monika & Karl's cottage over one of the Jazz Fest weekends. Monika was very accommodating with our arrival times and made the check-in process easy. The space was immaculate and the bed and futon were both very comfortable!

The cottage is located in a safe part of New Orleans and we always felt comfortable walking around (day or night) and had no issue getting an Uber or using public transportation like the street car (just a short 10 minute walk to the stop). The cottage is near wonderful restaurants off of Freret street, so we were able to feel like NOLA locals for a few days.

I will definitely stay here again on future visits and will recommend it to others.

Thanks Monika!
