About Cecile - Owner/Property Manager

As a 5th Generation New Orleanian, I finally moved from uptown to the best Block in the city. Wow, I just love my new life in the Marigny Triangle. I spent most of my career with the NOPD but also have been very active in the community. I know most all there is to know about New Orleans.

Please come share our home and enjoy our romantic city !

Cecile - Owner/Property Manager purchased this studio in 2013

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property for our anniversary trip to NOLA last weekend (we did 4 nights/5 days). We cannot say enough good things about our stay--Cecile and Chris were very outgoing and accommodating, while still providing my wife and I total privacy. They are very knowledgeable about their city, so if you are a first-timer (as we were), they are able to provide you with great guidance on where to go for the things you're looking to do, and how to get back on the right trail if you find yourself lost.

We were there during Hurricane Nate's approach to the Gulf Coast, and Cecile and Chris made sure we were comfortable and even provided a generator in case we lost power during the storm.

The location of this property is amazing, as it is within comfortable walking distance to the heart of the French Quarter, Frenchman Street, Jackson Square, and the French Market. The room includes a new and EXTREMELY comfortable pull-out sofa bed, microwave, sink, Keurig coffee maker with K-Cups, television w/cable, WiFi, mini-fridge, air conditioning, and your own bathroom that is just outside the door in the laundry room. Cecile even offered the washing machine and dryer if needed.

If we find ourselves in NOLA again (and we will, because the city kicks ass), we would not hesitate to book at this property again!

Great location and wonderful hosts.

Great location and wonderful hosts! Ceceli and Chris were so welcoming and shard their love of NO. Frenchmen Street and Bourbon Street were in walking distance but we were tucked away in a quiet side street away from the crowds.

Great location. Neat house. Nice owners.

  • 4 of 5

I would give this five stars, but it wasn't perfect, just close. There needs to be a small dresser so that you can unpack your suitcase. We also didn't have enough shelf space in the bathroom. My wife has big hair and needs a lot of product. Other than that it was perfect for us and would highly recommend.

A dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment Cecile gives you a hug hello, you know you're in the right place. She'll orient you to the neighborhood so you're familiar with everything right up front. Read her wonderful guestbook for suggestions from previous guests about sites to experience. The "cubby" (guest room) in the house is cozy and clean with its own entry/exit so your experience is always your own. The neighborhood, like the house, is relaxed, safe, and friendly and has the best music scene you could want.

Being within walking distance to the famous French Quarter and the downtown area as well, you can feel free to explore and sleep by your own schedule. During the course of my week-long visit, she even texted me occasionally to see how my trip was going. She had a clear sense of what made me comfortable and I am so grateful I chose her home for my stay.

Checking this city off my bucket list was made even more enjoyable because of my stay in the "cubby" and it became a highlight of my visit all on its own, inspiring me to want to return before I even left. If I ever do return, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Cecile!

Cozy

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! My husband, myself, and our dog stayed for 2 nights and it was perfect for us. We were tired after driving all day and it was nice that there was a sushi place about a minute walk from the cubby. There’s also a place we really liked called R Bar very close. The cubby was cozy and comfortable. There is everything you need there. We went to Who Dat(not a far walk) for breakfast and it was great. We had a lovely time and our hosts were the best.

Adorable and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in November. It is in a great location and we were able to walk everywhere- into the French Quarter and around the corner to Frenchman Street. The Cubby was clean, cute, and comfortable. Cecile and Chris are very welcoming and informative. Cecile has a journal that guests can write in and I just loved reading previous guests' adventures around NOLA. I definitely recommend staying here.
