Year Purchased: 2010

About: This our own vacation getaway from the cold Colorado winter and Fall and to enjoy the many New Orleans festivals like the French Quarter Fest , Jazz and Heritage Festival, Bayou Bugaloo and many others. When we purchased this house in 2010, It had been sorely neglected and but we were taken with the idea of bring it back to its former glory. The cottage in the rear of the property, which we offer for rent, dates back to the 1840's per records in the Orleans Archives Office-------- A recent review: "We couldn´t be happier staying at Kenny´s and Corinne´s place in New Orleans. You can tell the house has just been refurbished, with modern appliances and furniture, but still keeps the charm of a classic creole cottage. Honestly the pictures don´t do justice to the beauty of the little house. Every detail is well taken care of and the place is extremely clean. We were a party of 6 and were a bit doubtful about the house having one room only, but honestly it turned out perfect, since it has 2 bathrooms, the bedsheets and pillows are the best quality, and comfortable memory foam matresses, which gave those of us sleeping in sofas better sleep than in some 5 stars hotels. The kitchen is really well equipped and everything looks new. They provide board games which were perfect for a rainy evening along with the wine bottle they gave us. Corinne and Kenny were extremely nice and really attentive. They gave us tips on the neighborhood, the city and the activities to do. They asked us about our interest and made further research on those activities so we wouldn´t miss out anything from the great city of New Orleans, including obviously the St. Patrick´s Parade! The parade went by in Magazine Street, just a few minutes from the house, so the location was perfect to watch the parade and get the ambiance and the fun of the festival! Garden District turned out to be our favorite neighborhood in the city, beautiful to walk around ....."

Why Irish Channel, New Orleans, LA, USA:
We came to New Orleans after Katrina for the first time and fell in love with the city and its Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez lifestyle and energy. We found this house and felt that it was perfect for us--the neighborhood, and this home with wonderful history and great bones just waiting for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We found this historic property and it was love at first sight despite its need for TLC. So with the help of family here in New Orleans, we renovated the property to its original glory while adding modern amenities. This area of the City is speckled with great places to dine, grab a glass of wine and shop til you drop in local specialty stores. It's very convenient to public transportation and great for strolling around this historic area with its beautiful homes. You can walk to Mardi Gras parades and the Irish Channel parade passes only a block away. Since we can't be in New Orleans year round, we wanted to share our home away from home with others
