vacation rental description

This one hundred year old shotgun cottage is a classic New Orleans cottage with modern updates. Hardwood floors and high ceilings hold ceiling fans and original windows provide lots of natural light.

Entering the great room, a flat screen TV and speakers for your IPOD or laptop. The living area has a Queen sized sofa sleeper leads to the open full kitchen with an Oak dining table. Lovely light and 11 foot ceilings and ceiling fans are in all rooms.

The great room leads to the bedroom with an elegant Art Deco bedroom set and a new top of the line memory foam Queen mattress set, with deliciously soft high thread count new bedding and duvet cover. The bedroom leads to the updated bathroom with claw foot tub for soaking your dancing feet and dreaming.

There is an open closet across from bedroom with soft high thread count towels. The back door opens to the screened porch, my favorite room in the house, perfect for taking your cocktail under the swirling ceiling fan. The brick patio could be your next crawfish boil site. The studio in the back has a full sized washer/dryer. Celebrate Uptown New Orleans with fabulous food within walking distance in all directions, including the best poboys in town. St. Charles Avenue, Audubon Park and the Mississippi River all within 10 blocks of the cottage.

traveler reviews for this new orleans cottage rental

Home-away-from-home

Review submitted: December 14, 2013   Date of arrival: November 26, 2013

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay in the Shotgun cottage, which was as described. NOLA was having an unusual cold spell and we were thrilled that the heater worked very well. We enjoyed the safe, quiet and non-touristy neighborhood. The house was clean but I think the cleaner missed part of the bathroom. House was generally well-equipped, but I could have used a blender and iron. Great to come home from a day of action. Internet connection was intermittent. The owner was very responsive to try to help. Queen-size bed was good as were all the nice bedding and towels. Very good washer + dryer a plus. We ate in many highly rated and local restaurants and the best Jambalaya we had was from Whole Foods down the block. We needed to rent a car, (plenty of on-street parking), but you could easily get around without one. Beware if you do have a car, that NOLA has a parking regulation that you cannot park 20 feet from an intersection! This applies whether or not the intersection is marked. We got a $40 ticket near the convention center. Would be happy to rent again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, tourists without a car

A charming piece of New Orleans

Review submitted: November 14, 2013   Date of arrival: November 2, 2013

This is a gem of a 'shotgun' house in a very nice Uptown neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our one week stay here. It was cozy, comfortable, and well appointed.
We like to walk and the surrounding neighborhood and area is full of quintessential New Orleans residential architecture.
Magazine Street and many amenities are very close by, including many good neighborhood restaurants. Shopping for food to bring back to the house is very convenient.
If you want to experience a real New Orleans neighborhood experience this is the place to stay, and Amy is terrific- very personable and accommodating.

A perfect stay

Review submitted: October 30, 2013   Date of arrival: October 24, 2013

What a charming home! The house was the perfect size for my husband and me, and we loved the entire space, especially the back screened-in porch and patio. The house is even cuter in person. The neighborhood was walkable and we felt completely safe, and the patio area felt very private. Be sure to check out Laurel Street Bakery -- just around the corner!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway
