About Rita Rans

I've lived in New Orleans for 15 years and love my new hometown! I moved here from Indiana where I ran a vintage clothing store, used record shop and then worked in a battered women's shelter.

Rita Rans purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Rita Rans chose Faubourg Marigny

I chose to live in this area because of the wonderful mix of neighbors and the closeness to the Quarter where I can walk to Mardi Gras or walk through the centuries old village on a quiet, misty morning. Many wonderful and talented artists, musicians, and other eclectic people live in the neighborhood making it an always inspirational place to visit or live.

What makes this apartment unique

There are many wonderful and relaxing ways to enjoy the guesthouse and yet be a quick walk to great bars and restaurants. During Mardi Gras, you can step out on the front porch to watch the pop up parades.

Eclectic retreat in the Bywater

  • 5 of 5

We love this property. It is our home away from home since we moved from New Orleans. We just completed our third trip for a week's stay and it's just as wonderful as it was the first trip. The bed is the most comfortable we have ever slept in on ANY trip. We love the neighborhood, the dog walkers, the bicyclers, the restaurants and bars that are within walking distance, the closeness to Frenchman street and to the French Quarter. This is definitely a happening neighborhood. Would suggest not missing it or this beautiful little home.

Amazing Place, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little place for the two of us for a week in New Orleans close to Frenchmen Street. We were able to explore Marginy, Bywater, French Quarter & River all from this location on foot... felt close enough to it all but just far enough away to have quiet evenings! It's much better to be closer to Frenchmen Street than Bourbon IMO... great food and music every night on Frenchmen! Loved The Bachanal, The Joint & Parleaux Beer Lab in Bywater. In Marigny the Franklin & Orange Couch Coffee was great... Frenchmen Street... The Maison, Bamboulas & The Spotted Cat we enjoyed.... and in the FQ had Cafe Du Monde, Crescent City Brewing, French Market Restaurant, Tableau & Mena's Palace!

Thanks Rita for having such a great place perfectly furnished for our week in NOLA!

Fabulous gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay while celebrating our anniversary in New Orleans! This is a lovely home in a really great neighborhood. Nice and quiet with fabulous local coffee shops and restaurants but still close to Frenchman Street and the French Quarter. Rita, the owner, really takes pride in her homes and it shows! Thanks Rita for helping us have a fabulous trip!
