This is a cool little space smack dab in the middle of the Marigny Triangle, "the" neighborhood to be in the city these days. Only 2 blocks from the French Quarter.
See my listing "Heart of the Marigny Triangle" should this place be booked. Its right next to "Little Gem"!
Compact but charming studio apartment 3 blocks from the French Quarter. One bedroom with queen size bed, full kitchen and small living/dining area.
Two televisions -- one in the bedroom and one in the living area.
From our location you can walk almost anywhere -- the French Quarter is a few blocks away, and the Marigny itself is a fantastic place to explore. We have lots of breakfast cafes, restaurants, restaurants/bars and just plain bars. You'll find out where the locals go to eat, dance and enjoy our wonderful city.
I've loved being with airbnb, you airbnb guests are the best! The space is beautifully decorated if I do say so myself :) .... the apartment is in excellent condition and everyone who has stayed with me has enjoyed it very much.
Although I have put the space as accommodating 2 people, in a pinch you could accommodate a third -- the loveseat in the living/dining/kitchen space opens into a twin bed. However, when the bed is open the living space is almost nonexistent....but it could work for a couple with a child or when every space is at a premium like it is during mardi gras.... but I DO require that you let me know if there is a third person, and there is a small upcharge.
Now as to the "pets allowed".....I have had people bring their pets....if they are well behaved, don't piddle on the floor or chew up everything they are welcome.....I have an English Bull Terrier on my side of the house, so you may hear a bark or two....
I reserve the right to approve your pet. No cats please.
Oh, and I have an automatic, natural gas-driven generator that kicks on in case of power outage. It runs the whole house..... :) Katrina be damned.... :)
For those looking for an extended stay, I am negotiable on price.
I provide things like water, coffee, cheese, crackers, granola bars --- in case you arrive in the middle of the night and are starving. I also have a hair dryer, iron and ironing board.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: although I list a 3-night minimum stay, I require a 4-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY FOR NEW YEAR'S, HALLOWEEN, CHRISTMAS, MARDI GRAS, FRENCH QUARTER FEST AND the two JAZZ FEST weekends. I am trying to figure out how to incorporate this into my airbnb info.
Note: although I have checkout by 11 am and checkin after 1 pm, I am flexible if no one is leaving on your arrival day, and vice versa. I am also happy to hold luggage should times overlap.
I have a keyless entry and will send access info one day before your arrival once I have set your entry code.
I also have a place right next door, listed as "Heart of the Marigny Triangle." It's also a 1 BR and a neat space. If this place is booked, try that one!
This is a 350 sq. ft. space designed as if it were a boat -- every square foot is used. But you still get a queen size bed and a nice size shower..... there is no back yard but you are welcome to sit on the stoop, as so many New Orleanians do.....
I provide a hair dryer, iron and ironing board. I have small single guest soaps, shampoo and body wash.....
And, remember, I'm right next door should should you need anything else...we can work it out (thank you Beatles).
I can interact as much or as little as you desire. I now have a keyless entry and will give you your personal code a day before you arrive.
Take a cab at night. They are cheap and plentiful. The city has mandated that all cabs have GPS and accept credit We now have UBER and Lyft as well.
I am flexible as to check-in and check-out times. Except when I have a checkout/check-in on the same day. No smoking is allowed in the apartment but you are welcome to light up on the stoop :). I live in the other part of the house but you have your own separate entrance and the studio apartment is not accessible from my side. I do have dogs so sometimes they may bark; at least they sleep through the night :). Parking is on the street but not usually a problem. It is zoned parking but across the street is no zoning and you can park as long as you like.
I will have coffee, granola bars, etc. so that if you arrive starving you can have a quick snack before going out to enjoy our wonderful city. If you have certain preferences (e.g., decaf only) let me know and I'll try to accommodate. I also provide bottled water but the tap water is just as tasty.
Please do not fiddle with the television cables, I am not very good with trying to hook it back up.
Oh, and the strange doohickey plugged into the socket above the tv in the bedroom runs the cable for both your side and mine. So please do not unplug it! That way I won't miss the latest episode of Housewives :)
Making new friends is great, but don't bring 'em back to my place. NO guests other than booked guests are allowed, unless I pre-approve in advance.
Please do not apply nail polish or makeup anywhere near the bedspread or sheets.
OK, let's see.....hmmmm.....I like wine and my husband Paulo and I love New Orleans. We love living in the Marigny neighborhood (think French Quarter Adjacent ;)), and my guest places are right next door to us. We also have a charming rental in the Bywater that is listed under hubby's name ("Bywater Little Beauty"). The Marigny is a cool place to live, you can walk to the French Quarter in 5 minutes, but our neighborhood is mainly residential -- no T-shirt shops with booming music -- just a pleasant mix of cafes, bars and restaurants interspersed among the historical creole cottages, singles and doubles. We live in one half of one of our doubles.
I've been an airbnb host for over 4 years.... and I must say that airbnb guests are the greatest!.... All of my guests have loved staying in our spaces. If a guest has a problem or question we encourage you to contact us immediately so that we can help resolve the situation. We have had the same people book for the same events year after year. I think that speaks for itself.
I have an iPhone, which means (once you book with me) you can email me or text me and I'll get it right away.
I try to keep my calendar updated....if airbnb shows it's available, it is....
We are animal lovers and do allow dogs. We also have a dog. Her name is Stella (and yes, she barks sometimes).
