Warm jewel tones, luxe fabrics, and sleek midcentury modern furnishings welcome you to this newly rehabbed historic cottage in the heart of Fondren.

Guests are asked to not block the primary drive. Signage will be added in the near future for easier access. A lockbox with the key to the front door is located to the left of the front door.

Other things to note
The Funky Monkey is a whimsical project that grew from a long standing love of monkeys that began for me as a child. The flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz mesmerized me at an early age and I have collected monkey artifacts for many years. When decorating the cottage as an air bnb I found the monkey portrait and the idea for the Funky Monkey themed decor was a “no brainer” for me. All the decor in the cottage is inspired by the portrait and my love of bright colors, fabric textures and monkeys. I hope you find it as fun and whimsical as I have in putting it together.
