The Space

Stay in our enchanting Creole-inspired home in the heart of the Faubourg Marigny. The house, referred to by locals as the Snail House, has tons of character and antique charm. 15 ft. ceilings, Brazilian wood floors, and brick accents provide you with a unique ambiance that beats with the energy of New Orleans.

Your room is the Royal Suite, a large room with a private bathroom and study. The room is furnished with a king size bed, bedside tables, and a wardrobe. We provide you with fresh linens and towels. You will share the common areas (kitchen, living, laundry) with excellent roommates. The front section of the house is rented to guests such as yourself while the more permanent residents reside in the back.

The Marigny/Bywater area has an assortment of establishments that can suit the needs of travelers and locals alike.
Try the delicious Thai iced tea at the Orange Couch coffee shop next door. Take a short walk to Mardi Gras Zone or the New Orleans Food Co-op where you can stock up on fresh organic groceries. There are also dozens of bars and restaurants within very close proximity.
Stumble home from jazz hotspot Frenchmen Street (3 blocks away) to see live music on any night of the week at the venue of your choice (DBA, The Spotted Cat, Cafe Negril, Blue Nile, Maison).

10 minute walk to Bourbon street, Cafe du Monde, French Market, and Jackson Square

2 miles from the Superdome. Easy access to I-10 off Esplanade.

The residents of the Snail House are always changing but are often musicians, artists, and entertainers. We can point you in the right direction to find the scene in New Orleans that best suits you.

Interaction with Guests

We interact with our guests as much as they want to interact with us. We generally stay out of the way but are more than happy to spend time with our guests in or out of the house.

The Neighborhood

The Faubourg Marigny is an authentic, historic neighborhood with great food, music, and beautiful architecture. It was New Orleans' second suburb, developed in 1806.

Immediately downriver (East) of the French Quarter, the Marigny was once the plantation of a Creole born vivant who made the dice game “craps” popular in America and who dazzled New Orleans by his flair and enormous inheritance. After subdividing the property in 1806, it developed gradually with a distinctly European flair and a cosmopolitan mix.

Today’s Marigny is still cosmopolitan, a singles friendly and artist-friendly neighborhood where people from all over the world have chosen to make their home. Beautiful Creole and Classic Revival cottages that stood abandoned after residents left for the suburbs in the 1950s have been restored and painted in rich golds, brick reds and moss greens.

Historic banks, corner stores and even bakeries have been refurbished as homes and guesthouses, while riverfront warehouses now accommodate artists' studios and performance spaces.

Weekends bring shoppers to independent galleries and rummage stores in lower Marigny while the restaurants and jazz clubs of the Marigny Triangle draw people from everywhere. Just across Esplanade Ave, near Frenchmen Street this musical enclave is an experience you will not find anywhere else in the city.

Getting Around

A cab from the airport is a flat rate of $36 to "downtown" which technically means up until Elysian Fields Ave. At that point they will turn the meter on. So, you can get out at Elysian Fields and walk 2 blocks to the house, or you can ask them if they'll just drop you 2 blocks down for the flat rate. Often they will do so without turning the meter on, but you need to tell them.

There is free street parking in front of our house. Most places are walking distance but bikes are nice to have as well. There are many bike rental places nearby that we can direct you to.
