About Pat & Melissa

We are a married couple 'over 50' Pat works as a Travel Tour operator (Costa Rica), Melissa is a medical professional at a local hospital. We love New Orleans and are excited to share it with visitors. We attend the Jazz Fest every single day, and have for years.

Melissa is from here and Pat came in the late 1970s. We know our city very well.

We fully embrace the quirky culture of New Orleans. We love the local music scene, the festivals, and (most of all) the local food! We are longstanding members of an 'underground' Carnival krewe, and we march in the annual Krewd de Vieux Mardi Gras parade.

We are happy to share our vast knowledge of New Orleans with our guests.

Pat & Melissa purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Pat & Melissa chose New Orleans

Location! MidCity bills itself as 'The Heart of the City'. It is convenient to everything. The Canal Streetcar stop is only 100 yards away. This is one of the safest neighborhoods in the city.

What makes this cottage unique

This rental features a fantastic fully equipped kitchen. Stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops. With two supermarkets only two blocks away, you can save a few dollars by making breakfast and lunch at 'home'.

This is a free standing building in the owner's backyard. Lots of privacy and very secure.

Such a wonderful, hidden little place! For just my husband and myself, it was perfect! We bought a jazzy pass for the streetcar and didn't drive not once. The streetcar stop is right up the road. Highly recommend little cottage for the perfect NOLA getaway! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a small place but worked perfect for my husband and two young teens 14 and 12. We were always on the go if you need to be able to hang out at the house with four it would be tight. It is very clean and comfortable. Pat was amazing and helpful! We can't wait to come back and stay with Pat again!

Nice play for short trip

  • 4 of 5

I loved the list of restaurants and that they were all within walking distance. I loved that the streetcar was in walking distance. If I needed anything, the owners were readily available. Everything was clean and comfortable. This will be my go to place next time I come to New Orleans. Laissez les bon temps rouler.

Great Location & Completely New

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location because not only is it at the concourse of two street car lines but it had a great variety of restaurants, two banks, a pharmacy and a super market within a couple short blocks. It was a straight shot of about 20 minutes to the French Quarter on the Canal Street Car Line. It's just $3/24 hours of unlimited rides on all of NOLA's mass transit system. The kitchen had everything you need and they were all full size appliances. Pat was a very accommodating host. He had lots of great suggestions. We really benefited from his list of restaurants within a couple of blocks. He included a quick description, his personal review and the web links to each establishment. It was very quiet and a safe neighbor hood. The bed was comfortable. You'll enjoy your stay at this charming cottage.

First time in NOLA !

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good experience with the owner who is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The cottage is well located, very close to a street car stop on Canal Street, which takes you directly downtown. It is very comfortable and clean, very well equipped! We had a great time in NOLA also thanks to some great tips of our owner.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $75

We feel that the apartment is too small for more than two adults. Kids under 12 are free. Extra adults are $20.00 per night additional.

We are in a soft opening. We are still decorating and have some landscaping to do. But the apartment itself is fully furnished and new renovated. Come to VooDoo Fest, and be our first guests!
