About the property

Close to everything you want to do in NOLA, but quiet when you need to chill

This larger studio apartment is one of four units in this unique property that earned it an award for excellence in historical renovation from the city of New Orleans. It includes your own front deck, hardwood floors, stained-glass windows, queen-sized bed, additional futon-sofa that opens into a full-sized bed, and a bonus full-sized loft bed accessed by a ladder/stair; fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, fridge, microwave oven, toaster and coffee-maker; and personal safe large enough for a laptop or camera. Rounding out the features of this property is a locked front gate and ample on-street parking.

This rental is suitable for 2-4 people.

Save money by making breakfast in your room and enjoying it in our courtyard with bubbling fountain and peaceful vibe (also a good area for enjoying your afternoon cold adult beverage). Then head to the FQ or Frenchman St., or the nearby Bywater and Marigny areas, for some of the best food in the world for lunch and/or dinner.

Bicycle rental can be arranged, and is one of the best ways to get around and see New Orleans, and perfect for events such as JazzFest.

Early check-ins and late check-outs can usually be accommodated.

While we prefer to have an open-door policy as to pets, we have had some issues. If you would like to bring your companion animal, PLEASE discuss this with Eshyah first. If arrangements are not made and you arrive with an unexpected pet, you may be refused your room. We ask that younger animals be crated, and that all animals be kept off the furniture, including the beds. It is expected that pets not be disturbing to other guests (by barking endlessly or howling when you leave the room). If your pet is a problem at home, please don't expect us to deal with him or her....I'm just sayin'....

About The Owner

I'm a residential real estate appraiser by trade, and have been lucky enough to be able to do several historical renovations in the French Quarter area. I'm a transplant from California and have been in NOLA for 20 years. I came for the music and never left. I'm also a dog trainer and run an inmate dog-training program at LCIW, the LA Correctional Institute for Women, in St. Gabriel.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2000

Why The Owner chose Marigny-Bywater

The best thing about the cottages is their sense of place. When you stay with us, your vacation starts the moment you set your bags down. Our units are repurposed work buildings that are 175 years old. They have been renovated to include all the creature comforts you look for when you vacation, but still are a little funky, and real authentic.

Great Location and nice space

  • 4 of 5

We would stay again. Good value for the price. Nice safe and convenient spot. Had everything we needed but a vegetable peeler. Could have been a bit cleaner, but not bad.

Eshay was really supportive when there was an issue with the booking. She is definitely a positive for this type of hospitality offering. The house was clean and we had the supplies that we needed for our stay. My daughters and I really enjoyed our week in New Orleans and definitely give a thumbs-up for our accommodations. Thanks again, Eshay!

Cozy and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived later than expected but found the house with ease. The house was cozy and clean. We were missing a key but that was resolved easily with a phone call. The cottage had a well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. It was one block from the Rampart line of the streetcar and the French Quarter. Overall a wonderful stay.

Great location for walking to frenchman street and french quater.

  • 5 of 5

The space was pefect for a quick weekend trip or a longer stay. Felt very safe with the gated court yard. Very easy to walk around to any local spots or to grab the street car. We would definitely come back and stay again.

Amazing location, ample space, cute cottage! Literally walked everywhere during my stay. I come to NOLA 2xs a year & this was my most convenient location so far.

I had a positive experience, and the owner is as sweet as pie! However, the place is extremely dusty, mattress is pretty old and worn, futon looks pretty worn, but still functional, loft mattress is fine, kitchen cabinet doors are dirty, tub doesn't drain properly, there was long blond hair on the blankets, washcloths and towels. There was also pet hair all over the blankets - pretty disgusting. I would recommend laundering everything in the shed (since you'll have access to the washer & dryer) before using anything. The place could really use a deep cleaning, which I'd be happy to do for a discounted stay if I ever return!

Good coffee provided, and a nice patio or courtyard to enjoy it.

Owner's Response: Hmm....she had a positive experience? It doesn't sound like it! Usually people comment on how clean everything is. I will certainly give it a deep cleaning based on Beatrice's experience, and wash the comforter. Of course I wash all the linens between guests (except the comforter), so it's hard to imagine that there would be long blond hair everywhere.....that's a bit confusing, but I appreciate the feedback and will try to do better in the future. And I will have the tub looked at for drainage.
