About Pat O'Brien, Ph.D.

I'm Dr. Pat O'Brien. (Ph.D). I purchased my house behind this property in 1969, at which time I was Asst. Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of New Orleans.

Starting in 1982 I purchased and renovated 20 houses in my immediate neighborhood (from Kerlerec St. to Columbus St., between N. Derbigny St. and N. Roman St.)

The last three houses that I renovated won honors for outstanding renovation, and my work has earned me an award from the Louisiana Landmarks Society. I am truly proud of my neighborhood and hope that you will visit and see a different aspect of the city - a thriving neighborhood in the heart of Esplanade Ridge/Treme.

Why Pat O'Brien, Ph.D. chose Esplanade Ridge

This home is in a fast convenient location to everything - only blocks from the French Quarter. Bus service nearby. Consult schedules.

Taxi service available with Uber and United or Yellow Cabs.

What makes this house unique

You will be residing in a truly residential neighborhood - across the street is an Orchard that I own that was planted and fenced by Tulane University City Center. Just waiting for fruit to bear and for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.

At present there is a renovation of an old church going on across the street.

On the corner I own a lot that I allow neighbors to use - and older men who have lived or still do live in the neighborhood play horseshoes and barbecue every Tuesday.

You can't get more "N"Awlins" than this! (That area was featured in an article published by Tulane University).

So comfortable, convenient, perfect for family trip

  • 5 of 5

Dr. O'Brien was so thoughtful, the house/cottage was perfect for the 6 of us (adults). Walking distance to French Quarter daily, short Uber ride to City Park and everywhere else we wanted to go.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy our time at this charming New Orleans cottage. It is very comfortable and spacious inside, and is surrounded by lovely grounds and ample parking. The beds are comfortable and the baths and kitchen are clean and well appointed. The location is very convenient to almost everything you would want to visit and everywhere you might want to dine. Your hostess is most gracious and available to answer any questions and offer helpful suggestions. You'll be well served in this delightful spot in NOLA.

Spring Weekend 2018

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found Cozy Cottage much larger than expected. Lots of room to spread out and read, login to the Wi-Fi, or plan the next dining experience or excursion.

Convenient location no matter which direction you're headed. Easy drive to airport. Great location between French Quarter and Jazz Fest (at New Orleans Fairgrounds).

Great Location For Mardi Gras

  • 4 of 5

5 friends and I stayed for 4 days. It was a very nice house and in an awesome location for Mardi Gras. The walk to Bourbon was 15 minutes and very easy. Very close to parade routes as well. Pat was a very nice host and informational. She gave us lots of great tips and recommendations. Thanks Pat.

Charmed by the Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Pat made the trip so wonderful despite the cold weather. We enjoyed the tea and coffee in the house and were charmed by her interior design. I highly recommend staying here. The location was perfect because we got to see a real neighborhood in Nola and we rented bikes to get around so nothing was too far away.
