About the property

New Orleans Style Creole Shotgun, 1400 sq. ft.+/- Sleeps 7+ with 2 full baths

Short Term Rental License Permit LIC.17STR10612

This Historical Home was built in the early 1900's. Totally renovated, with all the charm of New Orleans. Our New Orleans Creole shotgun home is very spacious with new furniture and all the making of a comfortable home.

The Historical Bywater neighborhood is an artsy area with easy access to the Quarter, Frenchman St, Crescent Park, cafes, restaurants, grocery, park, and bars all within walking distance.

Welcome, and enjoy our Historic Bywater neighborhood.

We are close enough to the French Quarter to walk (15 -20-minute walk), but still far enough to not have the noise, expensive parking and activity of the French Quarter. If the walk is too much just call UBER FOR AROUND $6-10.00 (taxi), or rent a bike.

The Brennah Rose Place has a Living room with hardwood floors, TV, sofa and 2 chairs. The kitchen is fully furnished, (but who wants to cook when you're in New Orleans and you have all this good food).

Stairway/Bedroom has a daybed with a trundle.

Bedroom #2 has a new queen bed and mattress and hardwood floors.

Master bedroom is upstairs and has a new king size bed with a new mattress, also has a full-size bed with a new mattress and TV.

Bathroom #1 consists of a toilet and combination tub/shower. #2 consist of a toilet and shower. Just about everything NEW.

The Brennah Rose Place has all you need with a driveway and off street parking always close to the house.

Great Location.... New Orleans ranked 2nd best U.S. city by Travel + Leisure in 2015

Travel + Leisure attributes New Orleans' rise in the rankings to a growing number of new hotels, shops and restaurants across the city as well as the thriving Faubourg Marigny and BYWATER neighborhoods.

Uber about $6.00 +/- from my house to the French Quarter for tours

Our home is a vacation rental for a nice place to stay while you are in our home. We do not allow any parties, receptions, functions, and anything in that order. Sorry, but we are in a Historical Neighborhood, and we must respect our neighbors.

About Tony and Cathy

We own and manage The Brennah Rose Place and three other rentals. We are on the outskirts of New Orleans known as St. Bernard Parish, only minutes away from the Quarters. Our families were fishermen and farmers. We grew up on the bayou where we learned to live off the land. We also had a Seafood Business where we sold and shipped shrimp, crabs, oysters, and fish, mostly to New Orleans and Baltimore. Our families and us all share the love for our beautiful city "New Orleans".

Tony and Cathy purchased this cottage in 1995

We love the Bywater area it's a great laid back artsy neighborhood. One stay here and you will be in love too. Our house is over 100 yrs old. Once inside you will see the beauty. So book now and come on in!

What makes this cottage unique

Wonderful rental

  • 5 of 5

This place was great-- the extended patio out back is fantastic! Very clean, Cathy provided some light snacks and coffee, and plenty of information on how to get around the neighborhood. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance (try Elizabeth's and Jack Dempsey's!.) We had to call Cathy a couple times with questions and she was very gracious and helpful.

Family Christmas Get-Together

  • 4 of 5

The property was charming and well-equipped. We found everything we needed (and more) available in the home. Everything was spotlessly clean.

The property-owners were gracious and very responsive in preparing for our trip.

The only downside I could mention (and it was a minor thing) is that it seemed a bit further than I expected to get to the French Quarter. I would not really call it walkable, but it was just a very short Uber trip.

Great place!

Owner's Response: So happy you and your guest enjoyed your stay at our historical home. We love staying there and the area is so close to everything. We usually walk to the French Quarter or Frenchenchmen Street or the famous Elizabeth’s Restuarant. The usually walk is about 20 minutes if you don’t stop and view all the architect done on all the historical homes. Every time we walk to the FQ we see something else new.

Great space for Girls Weekend

Had a great girls trip here. The location was good - close to many things and Uber was available to take us anywhere we wanted to go. Loved the historic aspect of the home!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and had everything we needed. Just like home. It is located close to everything we wanted to see. We all had a great time. Cathy was just a call away if we need anything. When we come back to NOLA we will stay here again. We love it!

Thanks Tony and Cathy for having a great place!

Lovely House and Host

  • 5 of 5

Cathy and Tony thought of everything when it came to preparing their house for guests - tons of towels and blankets, and even shampoo and make-up remover. Our group of 7 women were very comfortable in the house, which has a fun and quirky decor, and lovely porch. Cathy was very accommodating and checked-in to make sure our arrival went smoothly.

The house has a great location. We never waited longer than five minutes for an Uber pick-up, and all of New Orleans' top sites are a short ride away - and many are probably walkable if you aren't visiting in August :)

I would definitely recommend Cathy's house, and would stay here again myself!

We loved this wonderful, historical home in New Orleans and their owners.

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming "alley" home, filled with reminders of the days gone-by and the current time. We loved every inch of it. The owners were wonderful, gave us sound advice when we heard that tropical storm Cindy was on it's way, encouraged us to stay calm, even offered to give a refund if we thought it was necessary to leave! While we would not have asked for that, the offer was typical of their generous offer to help. They suggested fun and interesting places to visit, told us how to find great places to visit, and made the visit a lifetime experience. We will certainly recommend it to others, and stay there again if we return to NOLA land!
