The Space

Spacious and a bargain compared to one bedroom units of same price. Bright, cheerful full kitchen but photos have not been updated.

Maison Marais 2 is a large, 2-bedroom home, 1/2 of a double shotgun house in a vibrant local community. It's has a mix of modern and antique furniture, right next to St. Roch Market, and is walking distance to Frenchmen Street (10-15 min) and the French Quarter (another 5-10 min). A good fit for two individuals or two couples. The sofa converts to an extra large twin bed for an additional person for a total of 5 people maximum.

Easy parking right in front of the house and public transportation just 1/2 block away. Walking distance to many coffee shops, local restaurants, music venues and bars. Just 4-5 blocks from Mimi's in the Marigny (voted best bar in New Orleans}. Same block as great neighborhood bar and art gallery, in the St. Claude Arts District (art openings every 2nd Sat of each month), just across St. Claude from the new Healing Arts Center and the Marigny Theatre. This area is home to many musicians, artists and film industry folks. Bike rentals are nearby.

House features furnished living room (with George Nelson sofa and Steelcase chairs), 2 bedrooms (1 double, 1 queen), bathroom, and full kitchen (Eames dining chairs). Clean. Nice linens, towels and toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, lotion) provided. Free wifi. Note that there is an addition in the back of this rental, adjacent to the kitchen, which is not part of the rental. The owner has access to this addition through a separate door, and a locked door separates the rental from this space.


I've posted a guidebook under Maison Marais 1 to some favorite local spots. Please check it out.

This house is in the New Marigny neighborhood and the St. Claude Arts District (art walk 2nd Saturday of each month), adjacent to Treme and Faubourg Marigny. It is perfectly located for exploring the quaint neighborhoods of Marigny and Bywater with their restaurants, bars and coffee shops; the music clubs and restaurants of Frenchmen Street; and all of the bling and glamour of the French Quarter by foot. There is a bus line one block away that connects you to Canal Street, the convention center, Magazine Street, City Park, and St. Charles Avenue. If you are driving, it is easy to park right in front of the house.

Note: The street view from the website is out of date and does not show the recently opened New Orleans Healing Center (with grocery, yoga studio, voodoo shop, police office, restaurant, coffee bar and juice bar, nightclub, and health club.) It is now a major focus of this neighborhood. The historic St. Roch Seafood Market, 1/2 block away, is now under renovation.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the city and it's events with guests and try to provide each guest with information to help make their stay unique, comfortable, and memorable.

When booking, please provide arrival and departure times as well as the names of all guests.

Note: The bar down the street on the corner has a regular blues jam beginning each Thursday at 8:30 p.m. On Saturday nights, there's music which goes later into the night. A few guests have noted that they are able to hear the music on Saturdays. My neighbor has a rooster who crows during the day. Some people find this charming; others trying to sleep in may be disturbed.

Whether it's eating, listening to music, thrift store shopping, hanging out in coffee shops, doing yoga or going to a small theatrical production, you can find these things within blocks of Maison Marais. There's plenty of day and night life here. Many guests visit the French Quarter on their first day in New Orleans but choose to stay close to home during the rest of their stay.


If my calendar shows only 2 days available, please feel free to request a 2-night stay (instead of the 3-night minimum). If I can accommodate you, I will. If you'd like to book 1-2 nights only, and there are more available nights, there is a $30 cleaning fee if accepted.

If you're the type of person who enjoys stepping out the the typical tourist traps and wants a home away from home where you can live more like a local, this is for you. Have the comforts of a large home to spread out in and to come back to when you need a rest. Besides the two bedrooms, there's a separate living room and large kitchen, providing more space than most other accommodations. So close to many things, one doesn't have to go far to feel right at home in New Orleans.

If arriving by air, I know a local cab driver who can pick you up at your gate, avoiding the cab queues, and drive you directly to the house without any additional costs over the standard rate to and from the airport. If interested, be sure to ask for her contact information. Please note that there's a public bus from the airport to Canal Street, From there, transfer to bus 88, and you're there, 1/2 block from the house.

Maison Marais 1 and Maison Marais 2 are two sides of a single house. So, if one side does not offer you the number of beds or rooms you need, please check out the other side. Both listings have calendars that you can view online.

Guest Access

There is a combination lock on the front door which changes with each booking. I enjoy meeting my guests upon arrival, if possible. Please give me a call from the airport or when you are an hour away, and I'll plan on meeting you at the house.

Interaction with Guests

I wish for all guests to be comfortable and have basis necessities met. Please let me know if there is anything you need during your stay.

The Neighborhood

With the St. Roch Market, the Healing Center and a classic neighborhood bar within a block, this neighborhood is thriving. Two bus lines are also within a block, For those looking for music and entertainment, there are 5 places within 2 1/2 blocks.

Getting Around

Once booked, there is a phone number for a United Cabs driver on your itinerary with whom you can arrange a direct pickup at the airport. Prices are regulated, so no deals to and from the airport (Uber is more expensive). She will wait until you are in the house if I'm unable to greet you.

Once here, there's public transportation a block away with 2 bus lines that go past the French Quarter and on to Canal where you can connect to the St. Charles streetcar and the Magazine bus, among others. Soon, there will be a streetcar line just 3 blocks from the house.

Other Things to Note

I do not provide paper towels or Kleenex, so please bring your own if you need them.
