**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!

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 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 New Orleans-style feast in our chef's 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 adjacent to 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.

About Owner

We are native New Orleanians who currently live in both New orleans and New York. One of us is a writer and part-time designer, while the other is involved in commercial real estate and hospitality.

Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Owner chose Downtown

We bought the Cottage because we were looking for a uniquely New Orleans home in a uniquely New Orleans neighborhood. As we work in New Orleans part-time, this is our home when we are there.

What makes this townhome unique

After those New Orleans nights, which frequently run late, involve lots of food and a 'few' cocktails, I love to crawl into the super-comfortable beds and fall into a deep slumber. Also, evenings in the courtyard and Jacuzzi are great because you can sip on a glass of wine, fire up the grill and watch the sun set behind the church steeples in the distance.

Charming location for a romantic weekend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend stay at this lovely Marigny cottage. The property itself has been kept up very well and has all of the little amenities that make you feel like you're at home. The owners are very accommodating and got us the information about the rental well in advance of our stay. The location is a perfect mix between being close to the major thoroughfares but far enough off of them to be quiet and without heavy traffic. Make sure you take advantage of the close proximity to St. Roch's Market and the Franklin, two of our favorite places to eat in the area. We will definitely be staying here again.

Nice stay outside the Quarter

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a four day weekend with another couple to celebrate my 50+ birthday. The house is away from the quarter but only about a $6 Uber ride to get there. The house is nice and clean, love the kitchen and clawfoot tub in the main bathroom. Nice to have a second half bath for the four of us! Hot tub felt amazing even on chilly nights after long days of fun and exploration. Very satisfied with our stay and will defintely stay again when we come back. Thanks Erin for a great stay in NOLA

Loved staying at Marigny Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Marigny Cottage was a wonderful place to stay for our short stay in New Orleans. Accurately described and great communication with the owner. Really great recommendations in House Manual instructions emailed before arrival. We especially liked the dining recommendations, St. Roch Market, and the Food Coop. All of the instructions were very clear and detailed, easy to understand.

The house itself, was beautiful, well decorated and very clean! It was a wonderful environment to be in during our stay. The layout and amenities were all very well described. I would definitely recommend Marigny Cottage!

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this wonderful house. It was really well stocked with everything and anything you could want or need. We would stay here again in a heartbeat, fantastic neighborhood and the owners had great recommendations for things to do and see. We had a marvelous dinner at the 'Franklin' around the corner from the house and had many visits to the wonderful St Roch market which has some truly amazing food and drinks.

Thanks so much
