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

Clean, several amenities provided and friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Cubby was great and I would highly recommend it to any of my friends. The hosts were friendly and full of outing suggestions. The Cubby was set in the back so you still felt like you had privacy even though it is technically connected to the house. We slept on the most comfortable pull out sofa bed, which was easy to fold up for when we needed more living space. They also provided us with a washer and dryer, ironing board, coffee, fridge, tv etc.! It is also a few minute walk away from great restaurants and Frenchman street.

Second time was better than the first!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and super owners!! This was our second stay at the Cubby and it was better than the last.. The cubby has everything you need, the new bed was awesome, and of course Cecile is the absolute best!! We walked all over from bourbon st to Frenchman and everywhere in between. This trip we spent more time learning the history of New Orleans since there are multiple museums within blocks of the cubby. We cant wait to return next year and see more of the City!! Thanks for another great stay!!

Wonderful base of operations and dog friendly too!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 5 terrific days at the cubby and we couldn't have been happier. The location is perfect. The cubby has everything you could need. We absolutely love Marigny which is a perfect distance from everything. It was amazing to be able to walk out the front door and to be watching live jazz 3 minutes later on Frenchman St. Chris and Cecile are the perfect hosts. Friendly, informative, attentive but never intrusive. Even our old crotchety dog was happy there. We can't wait to come back.

Wonderful location with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The Cubby was cute and quaint with so much character! It is perfect for a couple. The location is awesome. Right around the corner from Frenchman and a few blocks to Bourbon. Plenty of restaurants, shopping and night spots. We parked our car and never moved it until we left. Our hosts Cecile and Chris were so much fun and really accommodating. The whole community is friendly and safe. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it with no hesitation.
