926 Marigny is a classic example of a New Orleans shotgun double. It was constructed in the late 1890’s and the exterior has remained largely unchanged ever since. The entire house was renovated in 2012.
The apartment features a queen sized bed and a queen sized sofa bed and can sleep four comfortably (with the sofa bed folded out there is reduced floor space and in a shotgun style house, each room flows in to the next so there is limited privacy).
It is fully furnished and has a full kitchen, WiFi, satellite TV, central heat and air conditioning. We provide all sheets, towels, basic toiletries,hair dryer, iron and ironing board.
Access is via a keypad lock so late arrivals or early departures are not a problem - we simply provide you with your personal code prior to arrival.
From our convenient Marigny St locations, most of the restaurants, bars, shops and attractions of the French Quarter are a short walk away. If the Marigny/Bywater is more your style, we are right in the middle of the action with great bars, music and food steps away.
We do not have any off-street parking but street parking is readily available (unless it's carnival season!) and not restricted . There is also a free parking lot half a block away.
Rates vary seasonally due to special events and festivals but we offer discounts for extended stays.
We can also arrange airport transfers, laundry service and groceries on request.
Our approach to hosting is very much hands off. You could stay here and never meet us, but we're right next door if you need anything.

Great place, great host, great location! Wouldn't change a thing.
We stayed at Will's place in the Marigny for two days following Mardi Gras, and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Will had excellent communication with us leading up to our arrival in New Orleans. The check-in and check-out process was easy and convenient. We found the apartment to be spacious, clean, comfortable, private, and it really had everything we needed during the stay. Beyond that, there are so many New Orleans travel guides to help you in planning your trip! You will find Faubourg Marigny to be a very peaceful neighborhood, but well within walking distance of several great bars and restaurants (and only about a 10 minute walk to the historic French Quarter). We didn't have an opportunity to meet Will until five minutes before our departure (the taxi was already waiting and we didn't have long to talk with him), but he was very friendly and accommodating. We are looking forward to our next trip to New Orleans, and it would be a pleasure to once again be hosted by Will.
Excellent location for Mardi Gras and super cute. Very clean. Would stay here again. Neat neighborhood and an easy walk to fun. Will was flexible and responsive.
Will's place was clean and convenient--looks exactly like the pictures! Also, the neighborhood is great, and you have privacy there too.
Thank you Will!!
Will is an excellent host and we felt like we were staying in a very thoughtful friend's spare apartment. There were no unpleasant surprises during our stay in Will's remodeled home. He has good taste, it is still very well maintained, and as promised, it was fun staying in a little bit of history. The location is quite convenient if you enjoy taking walks and it is certainly a more cheery and functional neighborhood than say the Central Business District or the French Quarter proper. Most locals -- and we encountered many -- seem to walk or bike, and do both on the street since the sidewalks are in bad shape. Yes, it's not the wealthiest part of town, but everyone is friendly, it is not full of traffic, it has a fair number of good food options, and there is definitely character on par with SF.
People seem to stay up later around here... at least during Carnival. We really enjoyed two parades: Krewe de Vieux and Krewe Delusion, with their creative imagery, and spirited social messages, which both wove their way through Marigny before heading into the French Quarter. It was wonderfully kid-friendly, low key, and under control (at least in Marigny). It was quite a bit more fun than the impersonal larger parade, complete with viewing stands, that we experienced a bit of a week later along St. Charles.
I hope we'll be back in future years. We certainly would have enjoyed staying a few extra days at Will's place.
We had a great stay! Will was very accommodating of our last-minute reservation, and very welcoming when we arrived. The unit has a separate entrance from the main home, so it's easy to come in and out at your leisure. The unit was clean, spacious, and newly remodeled. Plusses included a Keurig machine in the kitchen and a TV (for Winter Olympics watching). Plus, the location is wonderful - right around the corner from St. Claude and Frenchmen St. nightlife, with the Quarter only a short walk away.
We loved this place! Location is close to the French Quarter so we were able to walk every where, no hassles with parking. We loved the little coffee shop that is nearby on Burgundy street. Very nice and cozy little house. Did not get the pleasure of meeting Will but Brooke popped in and was delightful, gave us lots of info. Definitely would go again and stay here!
Great location, nice neighbourhood very close to Frenchmen. clean shotgun. There were 4 of us but it was nonetheless comfortable. Access to the property, checking in/out, neighbourhoud recommendations are very convenient! Recommended!
Great house in a great neighborhood. Well furnished and very clean.
The location and home were both wonderful! Although brief, we really enjoyed our stay here. Will was SUPER responsive and accommodating. Highly recommended if you want to be near the heart of it all (walking distance) but still value a good night's rest or just want to feel like less of a tourist...
