The Space

Stay in our enchanting Creole-inspired 6 bedroom home in the heart of the Faubourg Marigny. The house, referred to by locals as the Snailhouse, has tons of character and antique charm. 14 ft. ceilings and doorways, brazillian wood floors, and brick accents provide you with a unique ambience 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 queen bed, bedside table, dresser and wardrobe. There are extra beds to accommodate additional guests. The study has a desk and can be converted to a second bedroom (a door separates the two but the bathroom is shared). We provide you with fresh linens and towels. You will share the common areas (kitchen, living, laundry, yard) 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.
Check out the jazz hotspot Frenchmen Street to see live music on any night of the week at the venue of your choice (DBA, Spotted Cat, Cafe Negril, Blue Nile, The 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.

Street parking. No Pets. 420 friendly.

The residents of the Snailhouse are an eclectic household of musicians, artists and entertainers in our 20's and 30's. We enjoy conversation on the front stoop, impromptu jam sessions and bottles of wine in the backyard. We can point you in the right direction to find the scene in New Orleans that best suits you.

No one under 21....for everyone's sake

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great stay in this very nice house called 'the snail house'. It's a great location to visite the French quarter! We stayed in the Royal Suite, a very nice, big and clean room. It was a 5 min walk to frenchman street (advice from Jen and Ryan) and so much better than the better known 'Bourbon street' (also nearby). Don't mind to pay a few buck to get into the places with the really good music and don't forget the street bands. Some of them are pretty cool! We would definitely stay again at Jen & Ryans place if we would visit New Orleans again.

  • I only met Jen, but she was very accommodating! The house was warm and cozy, and the master suite was perfect. Outside of a kitchen, it is self-contained---there's a space to work, and it has its own private bathroom. Her house is in the heart of a lot of great places. I plan on staying with her and Ryan again.

  • Jen and Ryan have been very nice hosts. The place is very nice and close to the french quarter. Unfortunately we only stayed one night in their place but I highly recommend it.

  • We had a wonderful time at Jen and Ryan's. The room is gorgeous and the house is perfectly located: 5 min walk to Frenchman St, 10 min to the French Quarter etc. We absolutly loved the neighbourhood with a coffee shop next (email hidden) around the corner and a mardi gras outlet/organic supermarket two blocks away. When in New Orleans we would definitely love to stay here again! Thanks.

  • Location was totally awesome and initially communication with Jen was good. Then it was all down hill. We never heard from Jen after a brief intro the first night and never did meet Ryan. Never felt "at home", felt like all the hosts were interested in was revenue. The room was not clean, bed sheets did not fit the small bed and the mattress was soft and sagged, it was murder on our backs despite asking Jen well in advance for a firm bed. Very noisy location made it difficult to sleep. Much more suited to the youth hostel class of guests than travelers with means.

  • We had a great time in NOLA, and part of the reason was our accommodations. Jen and Ryan weren't given much notice that we were arriving and they were still so accommodating. Their place is so cute and the neighborhood is very quiet. We felt really safe and enjoyed how close it was to Frenchman St. and the French Quarter. Jen and Ryan gave us great advice for brunches and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Jen and Ryan are lovely hosts. Super friendly and welcoming, but they also respect your privacy. The house is great. In a fantastic part of town close to the French quarter. We felt right at home. We will come back for sure!!

  • This was a perfect location, convenient and surrounded by great places to eat, hear music, people watch, and wander. It felt safe and very friendly. Jen and Ryan met us and got us all set up giving us good advice about places to go. (yeah Mimi's --go upstairs for the music and no smoking) The room was comfy and clean, and even though it faced the street it was quiet. Except for the fruit seller's chants on Monday morning- but it was fascinating to hear her patois. The Orange Couch was right next door for good coffee and lots of room to sit and chill over breakfast.

    The other folks staying here were super friendly and we shared info about things to do and places to rent bikes, etc.We were definitely older than everyone else, but it didn't feel weird. Thanks for a great stay.

  • La casa es tal como aparece en las fotos. Limpia y amueblada con muy buen gusto. Esta perfectamente ubicada, muy cerca del French Quarter, se puede ir andando a todas partes. Pero a la vez una zona tranquila para dormir y alojarse.
    Volveremos a repetir.
