At the Maisonette we are all about relaxing and taking in the beautiful weather of New Orleans. Please use the porch and the backyard at your pleasure.
Enjoy our side porch while you stay in this unique New Orleans side gallery (a traditional housing typology in New Orleans). Our house is located three blocks from the St. Claude Arts District, four blocks from the Marigny, and a 20-25 minute walk from the French Quarter. Our neighborhood is full of art galleries and music venues. The neighborhood is still up and coming. There are several vacant houses and overgrown lots, but it is close to a lot of great restaurants and full of artists and musicians. Please take you time to review the street view so you are not caught off guard.
We live in the front house so you have your privacy and we'll be right there to answer any questions or give you great recommendations and directions whenever you need!
Our house is perfectly located for exploring the quaint neighborhoods of Marigny and Bywater with their restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Use the free bikes to check out the music clubs and restaurants on Frenchmen Street and all of the excitement of the French Quarter.
For your grocery needs, the New Orleans Food Co-op is three blocks away and a corner store is a half a block away.
Faubourg Wines (a wonderful wine bar) is 5 blocks (website hidden). Coffee (local coffees and baked goods) is 4 blocks (website hidden). Roch Tavern is 2.5 blocks away.
And for all your jazz listening, Frenchmen Street is 15-20mins on foot or 5-10mins by bike.

First off, the description and photos of this place were very accurate.
Rosie was a great host — very accommodating, communicative and easygoing. The house itself was comfortable for two: nice bathroom (particularly the shower!), functional kitchen, nice deck, private space. On the couple very cold nights we had, the extra blankets were much appreciated (although the space heaters didn't do much).
The bikes were very useful for getting around town.
The location was convenient enough as a home base, although it's not a very bustling neighbourhood so we almost always left the area to go out for drinks/entertainment. That said, the local food co-op was close by and convenient for groceries.
Finally, the king cake and beer waiting for us when we arrived was a really nice touch. Thanks Rosie!
Man, we really lucked out with this place--staying here was more like staying with friends, but with more privacy and a much cleaner bathroom. Rosie and Greg are unbelievably cool, greeted us with a king cake and champagne on ice (it was our honeymoon) and since we were there for Chewbacchus, were sweet enough to invite us to their pre-parade BBQ (where we met a whole bunch more great people). It is a bit off the beaten path, but for folks coming from urban areas, that won't be a bother--the bikes make getting to the Marigny (and beyond) a breeze. But if you're lazy, there is adequate porch and yard space to hang out in, and their dog Grits will keep you plenty entertained.
Rosie and Greg were awesome hosts! Their maisonette is a perfect place to stay if you're looking for a place that's clean and cozy, a short walk from the French Quarter, and hosted by two very cool people. Rosie gave us great reccomendations on places to eat, where to listen to live music, and how to travel around the city safely. Everytime I texted her a question, which was quite a few times, she responded promptly and was always very helpful.
We felt safe in their neighborhood. We walked and biked during the day and took taxis at night. I wouldn't recommend walking around the neighborhood at night; we did once and chose not to do it again, but mainly because we are from Minnesota and have the word "Tourist" written all over us.
All in all, we had an amazing trip. New Orleans is our new favorite city and when we come back we hope to stay at Rosie and Greg's place again.
Thanks Rosie and Greg!
We had a great stay at the Maisonette la Croix! The place was charming and well kept. We had everything we needed and then some (thanks for the wine). Rosie was a great host and had plenty of information on what to see and how to get around. Loved the bikes -- a great way to see the city.
We had a great experience at this place! The house was exactly as described on the site. They had everything we needed for our stay, even a few breakfast items and a bottle of wine. The bikes gave us the opportunity to explore New Orleans without having to worry about public transportation or cabs. As stated on the site, it is a little off of the beaten path, but it did not prevent us from having a great time on our visit. We will definitely be staying here again for our next visit. Thanks again, Rosie and Greg!
Great place to stay. It's a bit off the beaten path of typical tourist things (French Quarter, etc.), but close enough that you can take a nice walk there if you wish.
The apartment was very nice and clean. I didn't interact with my hosts much in person, but they were very polite when I did. Rosie went out of her way to get us a bottle of wine, which was greatly appreciated. I texted Rosie a few times to ask her advice on various things and she was always very responsive and helpful.
Staying here was exactly where I needed to be. This is a great space, and close to everything.
Rosie was quick on correspondence, and greeted me upon my arrival. I was pleasantly surprised to find that she had set me up with a few breakfast items, coffee makings and a nice bottle of wine.
The space was clean and felt very comfortable there. From bikes, maps to tourist info she had it all set up.
Initially I was hesitant on the location, but I quickly realized it is an up and coming New Orleans neighborhood. It is a quick distance to the Bywater, Marigny and French Quarters. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes an bars in walking and driving distance.
I will definitely check their availability upon my next trip to New Orleans. Great space, great town.
We really enjoyed our time here and had a wonderful experience visiting the NOLA. The apartment was clean and comfortable. it was so nice to have a room where we can just rest and chill out and kitchen to cook up something. The surrounding area is going through some revitalization with some boarded up homes in the St. Roch neighborhood. We never felt threatened or had any safety concerns as we went out and came back late at nights. The usage of bikes were a plus, but the weather had another plans for us - very cold and wet days, so we didn't get to ride it. Darn! The location of the apartment was within good distance from French Quarter. We enjoyed their small dog named Grits. :) On our day of check out, Rosie was helpful with giving use some gadgets and equipment, so we were able to make and bake our pumpkin pie for our family for Thanksgiving next day. She was generous to allow us to check out late while our pie was cooking. We recommend the apartment for anyone who wants to experience the true NOLA, not the touristy ones.
This photos absolutely do this wonderful house justice. Rosie clearly takes pride in her home and her space. I was greeted with a bottle of wine, coffee, biscuits and jam. Rosie met me outside gave me a tour, provided me with an internet password and gave excellent recommendations on where to eat, see shows and spend my time. It really was a deal at the price I paid. The neighborhood was fine, I did not feel threatened at all. It was quiet at night (which is nice to get away from the craziness that is the french quarter).
The bike I rode was not the most comfortable, but it was free and the gears worked. Riding to the French Quarter takes around 10-15 minutes.
Overall I would HIGHLY recommend Rosie and her home.
We loved staying in new orleans at the place of Rosie and greg. It was a beautiful and tidy place. Thank you, rosie, for the welcome beers after our long journey. The place is located just a few minutes from french quarter. There is no better way to discover the city with the good bikes provided by rosie and greg.
We would definitively stay there again! Thank you.
