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 New Orleans

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.

Cute, Cozy, Close

  • 4 of 5

Well made, well decorated space. Small, but more than enough for one or a couple. Full kitchen, large enough bathroom, and close to everything it needs to be! My only gripe, no wifi... however there was a fantastic coffee shop just up the street where I was able to relax and work during my week long stay.

Super Cute & Fun Location

  • 5 of 5

The owners have done a great job updating this cottage. It's super cute and comfortable. It's also a fun location near some great dining options that are off Bourbon St. We used Uber and public transit to get around the city and had no difficulties getting around from this area. Monika is extremely warm, welcoming and has some great recommendations. I would highly recommend this spot!

Neat and clean

  • 4 of 5

Nice little cottage together with a friendly owner make this place hard to beat. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter but close enough to shoot right over. Parking at the house is fine.

They are proud of their parking spots in the quarter... great place! I recommend!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is as clean, Neat and stylish as it looks in the pictures. We walked to eat breakfast on Freret street in the morning. Walked to Supreme Seafood and had a window seat to the Mardi Gras parade! If I could improve something, I would add wi-fi. Would have been convenient because my husband needed to use his laptop. Not a huge issue though as we walked about 4 blocks to a coffee shop on freret street that had free wi-fi.

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!
