The Mazant is a historic mansion located in the Bywater arts district of New Orleans - about 1-1/2 miles from the French Quarter (30 minutes walking / 8 minutes by Uber). We have 5,000 square feet of indoor space and 9,000 square feet of outdoor space.

All bedrooms have individual Molekule air purifiers and our home is professionally cleaned and sanitized using properly-rated disinfectant for COVID-19, as outlined by the WHO.

The space
Over the past several years we have renovated the property, seeking to preserve historic details including 13' ceilings with plaster medallions, heart pine wood floors, cypress doors, and a 175+ year old oak tree. At the same time, we also updated the layout to more comfortably accommodate large groups:

* 18-person dining room table
* Oversized living room with 75-inch television and Baldwin upright-piano
* 12’ x 24’ pool and spa (heated year round)
* Private yard (one-third acre) with fire pit, six-burner propane BBQ, outdoor table and hammock
* Super-fast WiFi (the best tier that Cox offers)
* Front porch (gallery) with historic gas lamps and outdoor seating
* Off-street parking for two cars and ample street parking for overflow
* Viking kitchen appliances 

The house has eight bedrooms with layout as follows:

- Bedroom 1: one queen bed (semi-private bathroom - shower)
- Bedroom 2: one queen bed (ensuite bathroom - shower)

- Bedroom 3: one double bed and one single bed (ensuite bathroom - shower/tub combo)
- Bedroom 4: one double bed
- Bedroom 5: two twin beds
- Bedroom 6: one king bed
- Bedroom 7: two queen beds (semi-private bathroom - shower) and pull out sofa bed (double)
- Bedroom 8: one king bed

There is another shared bathroom upstairs (near the laundry room) with a clawfoot tub-shower combo.

The caretaker’s cottage is not available for rent. Our onsite caretaker is available to handle requests/questions throughout your stay.

Where you’ll be

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

Just down river (east) from the French Quarter - stretching from Press Street to the Industrial Canal - is the Bywater, where the mood and pace shift as you enter into the heart of an edgier yet still welcoming neighborhood. The St. Claude Arts District, centered around St. Claude Avenue, is home to more than thirty locations exhibiting visual and performance art, along with an array of artisan crafts. Down Piety Street, the fun continues with restaurants, thrift stores and more galleries. Even the homes, cafes and restaurants seem to capture Bywater's eclectic appreciation for the arts.

Spend the afternoon at Crescent Park for some impressive views of downtown New Orleans and the Mississippi River. Afterward, you can thrift your way through the neighborhood before stopping in at an exhibition and finally making your way to dinner. The area's restaurants are among the most innovative in the city and are great places to sit with a cocktail and chat with locals.

Above all, the Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods illustrate the relationship between the New Orleans arts scene and local life. So whether you're looking for the New Orleans of old, or if you want see where New Orleans culture is headed for the future, the Faubourg Marigny and Bywater will offer you glimpses in either direction.

I've spent the last few years renovating an 1880s Greek Revival home in New Orleans. I love hiking and am on a quest to visit every national park - 53 down, 8 to go!
