vacation rental description

**Note-We do NOT advertise on Craigslist***

The Marigny Cottage was recently featured on a Disney network TV show called 'Sweet Retreats' which profiles luxury vacation rentals, and the show's hosts chose the Cottage for their vacation! http://livewellnetwork.com/Sweet-Retreats/episodes/Cutting-Edge-Cottage-for-Rent-in-New-Orleans-Louisiana/9072101

The Marigny Cottage is a classic Eastlake Victorian townhouse that was constructed in the early 20th century in New Orleans' Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, which is adjacent to and within walking distance of the French Quarter. The Cottage has recently undergone a major renovation that brings out the charm of an early 20th century residence, updated with all of the modern amenities. The owner recently purchased the Cottage so all furnishings are brand new!

The Cottage, which offers almost 1,500 square feet of living area, has 2 private bedrooms (each with a queen bed) and 1.5 baths, a large formal dining room, a living room, and a spacious eat-in kitchen that opens onto a private courtyard with a Jacuzzi, gas grill and outdoor furniture. The Cottage has 12-foot ceilings, polished hardwood floors, 3 decorative fireplaces and large windows throughout which give the home a light, airy feel. The Cottage has central heating and cooling, and most rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan that takes the edge off of those days when the mercury is running high.

Guests enter the home through a formal entryway characteristic of traditional sidehall cottages. Adjacent to the entryway is a formal dining room featuring an exposed brick fireplace with a decorative mantle and two floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the room in sunlight. This room is furnished with a large farmhouse dining table that seats up to six people and is perfect for those evenings when you just want to order in or have our house manager Sidney prepare you a feast in our fabulous kitchen.

The spacious, light-filled living room has an exposed brick decorative fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa, a loveseat, coffee tables and a lounge chair. The living room also features a 40-inch flat screen HDTV, along with a DVD/CD player and an iPod dock. Wireless high speed internet is available throughout the Cottage.

When you are on vacation nothing is more important than getting a good night's rest. So, we have furnished each bedroom with a new, high-quality pillow top mattress, a down comforter, chenille throws and 600-thread count sheets that we guarantee will make it difficult to get out of bed each morning. Each bedroom has a closet, a dresser, nightstand, an iPod dock/alarm clock, plus the master bedroom has a 26-inch HDTV with DVD player. The master bedroom also has an exposed brick decorative fireplace.

The full bathroom is classic old New Orleans (but in a renovated way) with a pedestal sink and a clawfoot tub with a shower enclosure. The Cottage also has a renovated half-bathroom off of the living room and a large washer and dryer located in the kitchen area. Each bathroom is supplied with high-quality Egyptian cotton towels and bath sheets.

Our large, modern eat-in kitchen is delightfully bathed in sunlight with three sets of windows and a set of French doors that lead to the courtyard. Indeed, our kitchen is uncharacteristically large and airy for historic homes in the Marigny neighborhood. The kitchen features custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and is well-equipped with a complete supply of cookware, dishes and cutlery. Small appliances include a toaster oven, a microwave and a blender. We believe that coffee is one of life's great pleasures (and it's taken pretty seriously in NOLA), so we have provided our coffee-loving guests with three options for their morning brew - an espresso maker, a French press and a traditional coffee maker. After you have brewed your morning coffee, simply take a stroll through the French doors into the courtyard to sip your coffee and listen to the sounds of morning in N'Awlins, which might include the horn of a paddlewheeler making its way down the Mississippi a few blocks away!

And while you are in the courtyard, you might as well enjoy all of the amenities offered - soak in the Jacuzzi, throw some Louisiana shrimp on the grill or just relax on the outdoor furniture - the Cottage on Port is so comfortable that you might not want to leave!

Our local house managers - Merri and Sidney Roussell - are native New Orleanians who can be a resource to our guests during their stay. Sidney owns a catering business and is available to prepare in-home meals for our guests at their request. Sidney is also available by appointment to provide guests with black car service during their stay. Please inquire when booking the property.

traveler reviews for this new orleans townhome rental

Gorgeous house in great walking neighborhood

Review submitted: May 15, 2014   Date of arrival: May 7, 2014

We stayed here with friends for five nights in May and absolutely loved it. The house has so much character, and everything is in excellent condition (the kitchen is fantastic, and fully equipped with any appliance or tool you might need). We spent a LOT of time on the patio and in the hot tub.

A few of the reviews questioned the neighborhood, but we saw no reason to worry at all. We walked to and from the Quarter, Frenchmen Street, Marigny and Bywater at all hours of the day and night. It's a decent walk to the French Quarter, about a mile, but there are several ways to get there and they're all interesting. (You can also pick up a 3-day transit pass for a mere $9, and there are at least two bus stops nearby.) Our friends had a car for a couple days, and had no trouble finding parking out front on the street.

If you're looking to get away from the insanity of Bourbon Street while still being able to visit it any time you want, this is a great location. We will absolutely stay again next time we're in NOLA.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Great neighborhood for walking

Review submitted: April 17, 2014   Date of arrival: April 9, 2014

Stayed here with my daughter, son-in-law and year old grandson. We were in town for my youngest daughter's wedding on Frenchmen St. (about 11 blocks away 15-20 min walk.) Very nice location within walking distance to French Market and Bourbon St. (15-20 min.) and many neighborhood restaurants, bars and co-op grocery. We walked day and night and felt very safe. The house was very clean, well maintained and equipped. Cooling A/C worked great. Great house for adults and children older than 7 or 8. (drawbacks: it is near train tracks and train horns blow at all hours of the day and night. This might bother light sleepers. The backyard and front porch are not toddler/small child friendly...the front porch has no railing and the backyard slab is cracked and broken.) Both areas are fine for adults wanting to get a breeze and equipped with table and chairs. We used United Taxi and White Taxi services.

Great cottage

Review submitted: April 4, 2014   Date of arrival: March 24, 2014

Great, the best, fantastic, what more would you want. Hot tub was a great asset. Enjoyed coming home to a wonderful, peaceful, place. We were there for just four days and would love to go back for a longer visit. The cottage was so well furnished that the only thing we were missing was a cheese grater. So, I bought one an it ended up in my luggage, some how back home. Sorry Must do Elizabeth's restaurant, the best gumbo and food in the Quarter is the Old coffee pot restaurant, Louisiana bistro is another favorite we go to always, and if your going to be there on a Thursday check out Tracey's up in the Magazine st area. As you can tell we are foodies, but loved coming home to a great place. Highly suggest you give it a try
