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 Faubourg Marigny
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.

Quaint, charming and convenient!
Love Frenchmen Street, so this was a perfect location. Great local bars just around the corner.(Mimi's and The Friendly Bar). Try the Tapas at Mimi's. Easy walk to the French Quarter and Market. Brendan was great! Nice and accommodating. Cottage was clean and comfortable. We will be staying here, next trip, for sure!
Nice space, great location.
Hospitable owners, nice studio apartment in a great location. It’s in walking distance of the French Quarter, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. There’s a 24 hour market and a couple of good restaurants very close by, as well. Would definitely stay there again!
Nice, clean and close to the quarter
This is our second stay here. We love it because of the location and the host are amazing! The owner is a real New Orleans local with advice on places to go and things to see. You have your own courtyard which was wonderful for our pups. This place is really feels like a second home.
Enjoyed our stay
The initial reason I booked this place was because of the courtyard. I have two young sons so I wanted them to be able to run around outside and not be trapped inside a house or hotel all day. This place was perfect for that. Basically allowed us to have double livable space. The inside of the place was just enough space with a large TV to watch when the day was done. My only downfalls of this place was that the pull out bed, which we used was quite dirty. Looks like it hadn't been cleaned off in ages. There was also the smell of cat urine in a few places both inside and outside of the house. My son stepped in cat poop twice as we walked through to the gate. Not the end of the world, but gross having to clean off poop from shoes as we were about to leave. Enough about that though. The owners were super nice. They gave us our privacy, but were available when needed (they live in the front). They also had a 1/2 gallon of milk in the fridge for my little one upon arrival (on request). They grilled out one evening while we were there and brought us a plate of food. Very sweet. This place is close to everything we wanted to do. There are cute little restaurants around to walk to and the big bonus was the grocery store right across the street. Since the house had a fridge and microwave, we were able to buy ready to eat food from the grocery store (they have a deli with hot and cold food) and store in the fridge for the next day or so. Definitely recommend, loved it.
Great Location and neighborhood!
We were there for a long weekend vacation and loved the Marigny neighborhood and cottage location. We were able to walk to the French Quarter, and only 1/3 of a mile from The Frenchmen; bikes were lots of fun for longer forays. Cottage was comfortable and private, perfect for the two of us. Great breakfast place around the corner (New Orleans Cake Co)
We really enjoyed it. Location was great and host was really pleasant
Perfect little cottage nestle near the French Quarter
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)
