Let's get started!
~~ Rosie's Cove Riverbend Cozy Corner ~~
There are 4 accommodations to choose from at Rosie's Cove:
Riverbend Gem ~ Master Bedroom, Queen Bed
Riverbend Nook ~ Bedroom-Den, Full-Double Bed
Riverbend Sweet Spot ~ Common Room, Double Futon
Riverbend Cozy Corner ~ Common Room, Single Futon
This listing is for Rosie's Cove Riverbend Cozy Corner single futon, which provides sleeping accommodations for one guest. This wood futon is a genius piece of furniture and receives the most design compliments in the apartment! It is the Studio Day Sofa from World Market, 'works as a chaise lounge or bed,' (as advertised on their website--please look up if unfamiliar), and is outfitted with my own comfortable cushioning that makes it more plush and bed-like than the thin futon mattress/handful of pillows it comes with. As described and pictured, this petite love-seat futon works as a couch during the day and uses a provided twin set of sheets to convert to sleeping at night. The arms lift up and release down to extend the length of the futon, the width does not extend.
Dimensions From World Market Website:
Overall: 62-82"W x 33"D x 25.5"H
Center panel: 45.5"L
Side panels: 30.5"L each
The Cozy Corner is best for guests with a small amount of luggage, are good sleepers, easy-going travelers, in need of less privacy and comfortable with shared sleeping space, who will spend most of the day out and about in the city and primarily, are in need of a place to sleep and shower.
***Please do not book this listing based on budget if you have back problems and may be concerned it will not suit you. While super comfy--I've slept on it for months at a time!--, it is not a real bed and you should splurge for a real bed to realistically take care of your health needs.***
Cozy, colourful linens, handmade furnishings, gorgeous vintage wood floors, and zen garden decorations give the room a peaceful aura and glow! Furnishings include double futon and single futon, dining table with three ottoman stools and yuyu chair, ottoman chair, desk with chair, 2 hand painted tables, small entertainment center table, 2 retro stools, stained glass lamp, Himalayan salt crystal lamp, honeycomb paper lantern, and string lights. Large window plus ceiling fan, window fan, and A/C when necessary above futon provides very fresh, light, airy and breezy room! Luscious natural light and flowy curtains provide soothing, gentle daytime ambience; lovely, soft, decorative lamps provide gentle night time experience. Shared bathroom. Soft, cozy linens. Some natural bath/body products and hair dryer available. Guests should bring or purchase upon arrival their own, personalized toiletries as desired.

Rosie's Cove Riverbend Cozy Corner is perfect for individuals and couples, students, young professionals, late-night crowd, sound sleepers, and any flexible travelers looking for a gorgeous, homey, happy, fun, communal, peaceful place to stay on a budget! Rosie's Cove Riverbend Cozy Corner also, is the closest room to the kitchen where you are apt to find Rosie's Cove Proprietress brewing up some fresh herbal teas, simmering a pot of homemade soup, baking fresh bread or dicing a salad with local veggies from the community garden :*) Come on in for a taste!
This is a shared 'shotgun' style Common Room/Living Room (each room connects to the following room, like beads connect to each other on a necklace). As the Common Room is shared, other guests will pass through it to reach the kitchen, bathroom, front door, and their bedrooms. Other guests will use common amenities during the day, such as the futons as couches and dining table, but will retire to their rooms at night unless booked for the other futon in the Common Room. Shared living space is with all of Rosie's Cove guests and shared sleeping room is with Rosie's Cove Riverbend Sweet Spot double futon, i.e. one or two other travelers or on occasion, the host. Please be sure you feel comfortable staying in a shared space if you choose to select this room. The room is relaxed and peaceful however, guests may choose to bring earplugs or purchase them at one of two pharmacies in the neighborhood. On a privacy scale, Rosie's Cove rates this room 5 out of 10.
Guests choosing this space will be responsible for opening the futon into a bed and placing linens on it at night, as well as closing the futon back into a couch and neatly folding linens/stashing in bin next to futon during the day. Guests choosing this space also will be responsible for keeping their belongings tidy and respectful to others using the room both during the day and night. This is a Common Room and will be used by other guests, as well as the host, during the day and sometimes night. Shared Common Room areas such as double futon, single futon, ottoman seat, dining table, desk, and floor space must be kept clean and free from debris during the day and night. Though this room is available for guests to stay at night, it is not a bedroom rather--a Common Room--and will be used by all guests, as well as hosts during the day.
As noted, this is a shared apartment. Each room is priced according to amenities, size, and level of privacy. Please be prepared to enjoy the communal style living offered and that you are selecting if you choose Rosie's Cove for your stay. Guests should also be aware that if you choose to stay during festivals, holidays, graduations, or large-scale events, you are coming at peak time and each room may be fully booked. If you feel you are looking for ultra private accommodations with your own bathroom, entrance, or amenities that should be catered only to your needs...this may not be the best fit for you. All are welcome but please choose this location based on your excitement with the offerings, as well as desire to interact with host & other guests, rather than simply on price or convenience. Rosie's Cove is Holistically-oriented for all!
Tea, coffee, cookies & fruit always available! Breakfast available upon request for additional fee depending on availability of host and guest desires.

Rosie's Cove offers healthy-style accommodations for all! Rosie's Cove is a smoke-free environment. This includes both indoor and outdoor spaces--apartment, balcony, courtyard patio, shed, steps, walkways outside of entrances--or anywhere on or near the premises. Guests smoking anywhere on premises will kindly be asked to leave without refund. Rosie's Cove also is unable to accommodate guests who intend to smoke off of the property and then return to the apartment--due to the lingering smoke smell. Guests smoking off premises and returning smelling heavily of smoke will kindly be asked to leave without refund.
The above house rule does not include guests occasionally attending clubs and bars where smoking is permitted since smoking is still commonplace in many New Orleans clubs and bars. However, to protect clientele, bartenders, and musicians, many local music and drink venues have voluntary committed to offering a smoke-free atmosphere! Check out 'Let's Be Totally Clear New Orleans' online for a regularly updated list of smoke free venues and daily shows.
Please remember, Rosie's Cove is my home--not a vacation rental. Kindly treat the apartment with respect and gentleness, just as the host strives to do with all guests!
Rosie's Cove seeks to make rates affordable for all kinds of travelers. Why should single travelers have to pay the price of two? Mixed room accommodations provide affordable stays for students, volunteers, families, groups & international travelers!

Jennifer is awesome. She was very helpful and her place was as described. Had a great stay there and in would highly recommend Rosie's Cove.
It is really nice to stay in the cozy corner for my trip in New Orleans! The place is neat and there are chances to meet other guests and talk with them on various interesting topics. The location of this house is convenient for going to French Quarter and downtown area by bus and streetcars, and there are a lot of good restaurants nearby. It is enjoyable to stay in the house and get in touch with Jennifer, she cares a lot of the guest's feeling of the house and the city!
Jennifer was very nice and was always helpful. House was very clean, the futon was cozy and the furnishings were great. This location is also very convenient and walkable. I would highly reccomend!
My time at Rosy's Cove was overall pleasant, but truncated due to several specific circumstances, some my hostess had no control over and some that potentially arose from previous guests not following the hostess's stringent house rules. 1. Boil water advisory in New Orleans on the day I arrived. My hostess was out of town and so did not receive this information to alert the guests. I bought gallons of water for house use. 2. Toilet handle was broken when I arrived and because it was the weekend (and handyman was less available) I had to take the toilet cover off for two days to flush the toilet. This was fixed before I left. 3. I returned to the house one evening to a closed aluminum bag of chips on the kitchen counter that had obviously been ripped into by a mouse. That really was the last straw for me, so I chose to end my reservation at Rosy's Cove early following the mouse discovery. On the up side, my hostess, Jennifer, was a wonderful host, even from afar, checking in to make sure I arrived safely and addressing house concerns as quickly as she could while away from her home. She did stick to her strict cancellation and refund policy and did not give me a refund when I decided to leave. For travelers on a tight budget, this is an excellent place to stay in New Orleans. Right off the St. Charles Streetcar and several city bus lines, as well as super close to many restaurants. For those who want more flexibility, privacy or amenities, there are places, even in the same neighborhood, with slightly higher rates that I suggest you consider.
As a host with five 1/2 years of experience and perspective, relative to Meghan's, which includes no other experiences to compare with, I confidently weigh in with the following responses: Meghan seemed to be a friendly person but unfortunately, was extremely high maintenance from the get go, expected to be treated as if she were in a five star hotel on her $20/night budget, did not follow house rules, and sadly, lied about a variety of things during her stay, as well as in her review. For these reasons, she did not receive a refund from myself or on her reservation through the system when calling in, as she was not entitled to one. Despite practically demanding a refund after a friend offered her a place to stay, which she found more convenient and flat-out told me so, she was denied. Moreover, when speaking with Meghan on the phone, she entirely changed her story halfway through about why she was leaving, which was confirmed to me by someone in the apt, whom Meghan told she was leaving because she wanted more space of her own and to be closer to campus, where her workshops were, as well as because she was past the point in her life of happily sharing communal space with others--all of which she stated to me in varying ways and times, as well. **To note, when Meghan first contacted me, I encouraged her to look into more private, closer accommodations to her daily routine but she wanted to stick within her budget, although clearly, it ultimately was revealed to me that she wasn't a good match for the space she selected primarily because she wasn't looking to be a team player but rather, was super focused on having her needs expressed and met constantly, which is why she just assumed outright that she would receive a refund and became escalators when she didn't such that I had to keep referring her to customer service. Regarding Meghan's accusations: The first is a flat-out lie, which I've reported, as its against policy to lie in reviews. I did, in fact, receive a boil water advisory alert and informed all guests, multiple times over several days with updates as the city status changed, including discussing it with Meghan. Second, a different, accurate version of her story-the toilet handle broke the morning that Meghan arrived and was fixed within less than 48 hours, despite it being a weekend over the summer, when affordable handymen are difficult to find, which I spent the weekend doing. The toilet worked the entire time, simply required lifting the back momentarily to flush, not particularly arduous or taxing, particularly for $20/night. I kept in touch with Meghan and other guests throughout this time.0, too, just as I kept them informed of the city-wide boil water advisory. Third, another lie, this time of omission-Meghan BROKE HOUSE RULES by not storing -HER- food properly (she failed to mention in the review that SHE left food out) and even admitted to me that she saw the house rules about food storage in writing online/posted in the apt/heard me say it on the phone...but thought she could do what she wanted, regardless?! 4. Meghan also failed to acknowledge that I coached her through how to contact customer service and encouraged her to tell the truth about choosing a poor match for herself so that she might receive some travel credit in the future. In sum, I went above and beyond to stay in touch with Meghan, support her needs, teach her how to effectively resolve differences tween host/guest, and was super kind to her in the process. I only wish she had left the unnecessary conflict at home, been more honest with me personally, as well as in the review, and assessed her own needs accurately, which I also tried to help her with before she made a commitment. That's what keeps shared economy services functioning well for all. I also hope Meghan she takes more responsibility and accountability for her choices next time. Again, the system works best for all that way.
Jennifer runs an orderly clean place. All the rules are clear so all 6 people I shared space with over 2 days got along great. She has a genuine concern for her guests. The neighborhood is great, streetcar runs nearby, close to fun and cultural spots. In summary, it is perfect for a traveller with modest budget, who is willing to live in tighter quarters with strangers but in a lovely part of town.
Great communicator, Everything was spelled out upon arrival. The neighborhood was simply gorgeous and accessible to downtown via the street trolley.
Jennifer was very diligent in her contact and thorough in describing her neighborhood and house rules. Although I had to cut my stay short my time there and the interesting folks I met will make my stay there very memorable.

Train, bus, boat, car, plane, foot...backpack, duffel bag, suitcase, laundry bag...camping, home stays, B&B's, fancy suites ~ I'll take them all ~ and am ready for a good road trip any day of the week!
I love New Orleans! And I love sharing New Orleans! I have lived in the Big Easy for over 20 years; attended, as well as worked for, Newcomb College & Tulane University for undergraduate and graduate school; am enchanted by The Crescent City's music, food, art, architecture, nature, history, diversity...and best of all, community! New Orleans was voted the friendliest city in the USA and just a few minutes here will show you why. Travelers from around the world say the same so, it must be true!
I look forward to hosting you, learning more about your culture & life experiences, as well as sharing my Rosie's Cove, New Orleans home with you. I love hosting people from around the world as much as global traveling myself and believe in good travel karma! Fantastic guests are what make hosting a unique and special experience. I always strive to be the hostest with the mostest and serve the guestests who are bestest!
