About the Property

Comfortable Spacious Cottage w Courtyard,Safe Clean Historic Neighborhood

Your going on vacation so treat yourself to a very comfortable clean quite cottage near all attractions thats located in a safe clean neighborhood with a 24hr. grocery deli across the street thats very convenient. Large T.V. and wifi provided also coffee maker and coffee .You have a large private courtyard thats great for cocktail hour and all hours.New Orleans is a small but cosmopolitan city, and nowhere in town is this more apparent than in the Marigny Bywater area, where the atmosphere is so relaxed it is almost like a village, but you can find more bars, cafe's, restaurants and fun things to do than in many large cities. Whether you seek a wild or relaxed experience, to expand your horizons or stay in your comfort zone, you will find it all here.
This comfortable, private cottage has space to relax and unwind in the heart of the Historic Faubourg Marigny Neighborhood, surrounded by Mardi Gras dens, many music venues, bars, and restaurants. A 2 min. walk brings you to a beautiful park on the Mississippi River. A 5 min.five min.walk from the cottage takes you to Frenchman street where you will find plenty amazing Jazz clubs, hip cafes and restaurants that should not be missed.Then 3 blocks down Frenchman St. you are in the French Quarter also know as the Vieux Carre (old square) Our cottage offers access to the adventure and mystery of New Orleans away from the crowds and noise of Bourbon St. but still close enough to walk. The cottage offers a queen size bed and a queen size sofa bed, so it can sleep up to four guests comfortably, though it's ideal for a couple. A full size refrigerator, microwave, bottled water and coffee are all provided.

Want to enjoy cafe au lait at a sidewalk cafe? Stroll down to Cake, Flora's or Orange couch, all within three blocks. Would you prefer seafood brunch with friends over bloody Mary's and mimosas? Ride the bikes down to Elizabeths, eight blocks along the river. Or grab a snowball at the stand on Piety street stand and walk through the new riverfront park to watch the ships go by. Experience the night life and live music of Frenchman street or the French Quarter, minutes away on foot or bike, or hit one of the top rated fine dining restaurants in the neighborhood such as The Franklin, Mariza, or Feelings Cafe. Prefer to stay at home? The top-rated pizza restaurant in town is 6 blocks away and they deliver. So does the Ukranian restaurant at Siberia, the Turkish Kebab place on St. Claude and a dozen others - you can even have a bloody Mary delivered to your doorstep. Craving BBQ? Best in the city at the Joint is just a few blocks away. Whatever you are looking for in New Orleans, you can find it from your own little oasis in the heart of downtown.

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)

This property belong to my father that passed about 10yrs.ago.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.

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.
