About Brendan McAcy

I'm Brendan, born and raised in New Orleans.I have been providing historical tours from the seat of my mule-drawn carriage for over 24 years.We use mules instead of horses in New Orleans because of our climate.They are much stronger, sure footed and smarter also.I think I have the best job in the world. My love, Valerie, works as nurse at a local hospital. She moved to New Orleans from Mississippi a few years ago. We truly enjoy sharing our home, rental cottage, neighborhood, and city with travelers. I can point you in the right direction to just about anything this city has to offer. Eating drinking and laughing is a large part of our culture down here and we live it.

Brendan McAcy purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Brendan McAcy chose Marigny-Bywater

This property is located in the historic Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. It is the coolest and most fun neighborhood in New Orleans. This neighborhood was developed by Bernard deMarigny in 1805 on his familys plantation. Many styles of New Orleans architecture can be found here. You can spend hours wandering and your never far from local watering holes full of colorful characters.

If you want music you have a variety to choose from just a few blocks away on Frenchman St. and a couple blocks past Frenchman puts you in the French Quarter.All within a 10min walk.If you choose to hangout in the Faubourg Marigny we also have great nightlife and many great restaurants with real New Orleans flavor and culture. Read the reviews that I am very proud of everyone seems to love the cottage and neighborhood.

We want our guests to live like a local during their stay here in New Orleans and feel the warmth of the city. We want you to remember this trip forever. This neighborhood the Faubourg Marigny, which borders the French Quarter, was developed by Bernard de Marigny in 1805 on his family's plantation. Marigny famously named the streets of his neighborhood Peace, History, Poets, Frenchmen, Greatmen, Goodchildren, Music, Love,and Craps to name a few. Many have been renamed today. He squandered the family fortune playing Craps(he brought the game to New Orleans) and with ladies of the night in Storyville, the red light district of New Orleans, till 1917. Storyville was located in the Faubourg Treme and is the birth place of Jazz. You can visit his tomb in the St.Louis Cemetery #1.

Wander around to see many different types of architecture we are famous for. Shotguns, Creole Cottages,Townhouses. Many with gingerbread woodwork and beautiful iron work. Two blocks from the cottage is Crescent park located along the mighty Mississippi River. A wonderful spot to enjoy a few drinks and watch port traffic from huge freighters and cruise boats from all over the world.

We provide our guests with bicycles so they can explore the city just as we do. New Orleans is phenomenal place for music lovers because live music can be found every single night of the week in dozens of nearby venues. The best are within walking distance from our property. Frenchmen Street is just a few blocks away, where you can find traditional dixieland jazz, blues, reggae, soul, and more at places like The Spotted Cat, The Blue Nile, DBA, and Three muses.

Eat your heart out, darling! Delicious food can be found everywhere. Mimi's in the Marigny is located just a block away from our place, and they not only have fantastic live music every night, but they have delicious tapas. Our favorite plate at Mimi's is fried goat cheese balls drizzled with honey! Another music venue also offering outstanding food is Three Muses. My God, everything is mouth watering. Travel to the end of the Bywater and find Bacchanal, a place which serves outstanding wines paired with 5-star food served on paper plates to the sounds of a live jazz band in an outdoor patio. Treat yourself to a fine dining experience at least once while you are here, in the French Quarter you'll find the world famous classic Creole restaurant, Antoine's, which offers a 3-course lunch on most days for around $20 with 25-cent cocktails! You can also ride you bike (or streetcar for $1.25) to the Garden District to do a similar lunch special at Commander's Palace, which offers 25-cent martinis! (Fine Dining Attire Required)

New Orleans at your liesure !

  • 5 of 5

This rental excels in all critical parameters when selecting a place to stay......Location, Security, Privacy, Solitude, parking your car in a safe and easily accessible spot...and having local amenities (coffee shops, groceries, bars / restaurants) all within a few minutes walking distance.

The Marigny provides an opportunity to assimilate into a truly unique neighborhood experience. Neighbors practically living atop one another, within a vibrant, yet tranquil environment....No traffic noise.....just birds, and the wind through the trees.....Cats seem to like it , too....as they hang out on neighboring porches..... joining you for your morning coffee out in the courtyard.....

The unit is spacious and clean.....with all the essential amenities.....great bed, shower, TV, fridge, microwave, and Wi-Fi....What more do you need when you are not out exploring New

Orleans....The available bikes provide great access to the French Quarter and beyond...and will spare your travel times and aching feet !

I cant say enough about how unique and pleasurable our experience was. If and when we ever have a chance to return to New Orleans for a visit, this rental will be our first choice!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and all we needed for our week in New Orleans. We were close enough to walk to the French Quarter which we did several times but for the most part we chose to utilize Lyft which was so convenient. The New Orleans cake, coffee and bake shop was an excellent place for breakfast and only 2 blocks away. Brendan and Valerie are wonderful hosts. After a long drive, we appreciated the cold beverages that they had ready for us. The courtyard was perfect for enjoying our coffee in the morning and a nice glass of wine in the evening. Our little dog Duncan enjoyed his stay as well. Thank you Brendan and Valerie for helping to make our first trip to New Orleans perfect.

Great rental and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property in a really fun and safe area. I can't say enough about how helpful the bikes were in exploring everywhere. We took an Uber to and from the airport and used the bikes for everything else. The Marigny is a beautiful neighborhood and we ended up staying around this area for most of our trip. The French Quarter is just a 5 minute bike ride away and be sure to check out Frenchmen Street, also just a quick ride away. There are plenty of great restaurants, coffee shops, and bars within a very short distance. Try Who Dat Coffee Cafe for a great breakfast! The cottage is private, clean, and quiet, perfect for a couple. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and the property has everything you will need.

Fantastic !!

  • 5 of 5

Brendan and Valerie were wonderful hosts and the unit was very nice and beautifully decorated. Couldn't have asked for more. Staying in a neighborhood of New Orleans instead of the busy French Quarter was great and a new experience for us. Both Brendan and Valerie showed us how to get around. Seeing all the architecture and flavor of Faubourg Marigny was a real treat that many tourist don't explore and they miss out.
