❤️ MISSION & OVERVIEW
Rosie's Cove is fueled by teamwork, sustainability, and respect! Low rates, clean living, healthy atmosphere and peaceful vibe are generated by a community of guests taking a sense of responsibility and care for enjoying and protecting The Cove's 'ecosystem'. As part of this commitment, throughout the apartment, you will find many furnishings, bedding, decorations, cleaning products, body products, and food that are natural style, organic, fair trade, sustainably harvested, and/or locally produced.
We learn from and share with each other so, please be sure to leave your positive impact in the apartment just as Rosie's Cove hopes to do with you. Everyone and everything that enters The Cove has a story! Rosie's Cove heartily believes in considering the impact of our choices for seven generations and living simply that others may simply live!
Please remember, Rosie's Cove is my sweet, cozy home where I live and work, as well as invite family, friends, clients, and travelers looking for natural style living accommodations to share with me while enjoying the fun & leisure of New Orleans! It is not a vacation rental, hotel, motel, hostel, or bed and breakfast. Kindly treat the apartment with respect and gentleness, just as the host strives to do with all guests!
I often am in the kitchen brewing up fresh herbal teas, simmering a pot of homemade soup, baking fresh bread or dicing a salad with local veggies from the farmer's market. Come on in for a taste and to learn more about healthy living!

Premises include approximately 800 square feet of indoor apartment space plus approximately 800 square feet of outdoor balcony and patio space.
❤️RIVERBEND COZYCORNER ~ COMMON ROOM FUTON 1
This listing is for Rosie's Cove Riverbend Cozycorner click-clack style futon. The Cozycorner is best for flexible, sound sleepers with a small amount of luggage, in need of less privacy, 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. There is another futon in this room that an additional guest, or the host, may sleep on.
Handmade furnishings, gorgeous vintage wood floors, and zen garden decorations give the room a peaceful aura and glow! Furnishings include two futons, dining table with ottoman stools and yuyu chair, ottoman chair, desk with chair (for host use only), 2 hand painted tables, 2 hand painted cabinets (for host use only), stained glass lamp, Himalayan salt crystal lamps, Japanese rice 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.
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 may use common amenities in this room during the day, such as futons, dining table, and chairs but will retire to their rooms at night, unless they are booked for the other futon in the common room. 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, there are earplugs available behind the oval mirror in the bathroom, as well. 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 behind futon next during the day. Guests choosing this space also are required to keep their belongings in their luggage and space tidy at all times.
This futon is next to the wall unit air conditioner. If you are sensitive to cool or blowing air, choose the Riverbend Cozycorner, the other futon in the same room. If you love cool, crisp air on the warm months, this accommodation is for you!
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 and other guests, rather than simply on price or convenience. Rosie's Cove is holistically-oriented for all!
Check-in begins at 3pm, check-out ends at 10am. Free street parking in and around neighborhood. French Quarter approximately 5 miles. Airport approximately 12 miles. Train and bus station approximately 4 miles.
Please visit Rosie's Cove Riverbend Gem Guidebook on Airbnb for an ever-growing list of local recommendations! You'll have to search close up on the map to find the buried under the abundance of locally owned neighborhood restaurants, cafes, shops, pubs, and music venues!
CLEANING HOURS: 12-2PM DAILY
except when I'm traveling or have occasional appointments. Guests are requested to tidy their space for easy cleaning and leave premises promptly by 12pm. I clean and upkeep the property many more hours per day but these are fixed hours for cleaning, restocking, and routine maintenance, all necessary for a healthy, hygienic stay. If I am traveling for part or all of your stay, have an appointment during cleaning hours, or other scheduling change, I will keep you informed, as I have more info, on housekeeping hours.
Nominal cleaning fee of $20 per booking of one week or less, plus $20 for each additional week, for natural cleaning supplies and housekeeping services.
❤️ GUEST RESPONSIBILITIES
Check-out responsibilities include bringing all used linens (sheets and towels) to downstairs patio for laundering, removing trash from bedroom, unwanted food from kitchen, and bath and body products from bathroom. Rooms should be left tidy. Guests are expected to clean up behind themselves regularly during their stay and double-check to make sure they have left the apartment clean when checking out.
I periodically travel for work or family. I will keep you informed about my schedule and whether I will be at the apt for your stay before you check in. As my reviews show, I have hosted plentiful guests while on the road. While traveling, I hire weekly cleaning services and/or have a housesitter who cleans thoroughly once a week, tidies in between, and also is keen to connect with guests about all things NOLA, since she grew up here! However, guests are responsible for keeping their space tidy, along with the simple task of washing and replacing linens when I am not in town, which accounts for my lowered rates.
This can easily be done on day of check out while packing, having breakfast, etc. I have a free washer/dryer in a little house on the patio, along with laundry soap, and check-out instructions on a white board in the Common Room, which I will text you as well. You'll just need to leave enough time, about an hour, to cycle through both washer/dryer, replace linens, and return room to original mint condition in which it was found.
Rosie's Cove is a smoke-free environment. This includes all indoor and outdoor spaces--apartment, balcony, courtyard patio, shed, steps, walkways outside of entrances--anywhere on or directly near the premises. Guests smoking anywhere on premises will 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 be asked to leave without refund.
The above house rule does not include guests who've been to outdoor venues where smoking is permitted thus, have picked up the scent of second-hand smoke.
Most importantly, Rosie's Cove hosts the greatest guests in the world! I always strives to be the hostess with the mostest and serve the guestests who are bestest!
Guests may use the room they've booked, along with common spaces including the common room, kitchen, bathroom, and downstairs patio.

ROSIE'S COVE POLICIES
Please be ❤GENTLE AND LOVING❤ to Rosie's Cove! Rosie's Cove is a labor of love! Most furnishings and decorations are hand made! Everything is meant to be treated with respect and mindfulness. As noted in listings, this is my home and you are a guest. Guests are required to be mature, responsible, mindful, clean, and considerate.
There truly is one golden rule, be courteous! The rest are policies to make living together in a shared community successful for all...that's you: the guest, me: the host, and Rosie's Cove: the space!
CHECK IN/CHECK OUT
Standard check-in begins at 3pm. This means your room is ready at 3pm. Standard check-out ends at 10am. This means all of your belongings must be out of the room with linens taken down to laundry (to be washed by host), trash removed, and room left clean, as found, by 10am.
As noted in my listing, routine cleaning, maintenance, and administration hours are 12-2PM DAILY, except when I'm traveling or have occasional appointments. As noted on my Airbnb listings prior to you booking, guests are required to leave during this time. The door will be locked promptly at noon for two hours. Starting preparations to exit by 11:30 gives guests plenty of time to have their belongings together and be out the door by noon. If I am traveling for part or all of your stay, have an appointment during cleaning hours, or other scheduling change, I will keep you informed, as I have more info, on housekeeping hours.
Prior To 12pm, All Guests Are Expected To:
Leave apt space as found (or better!)
Tidy your belongings and bed
Pick up items off floor in your room
Hang wet towels on hooks
Keep all food in fridge
Take out trash from your bedroom, if full
Clean your hair out of shower & sink
Wipe down surfaces in bathroom and kitchen when finished
Rosie's Cove is a barefoot, sock, or slipper home. Shoes are always left on the white rack by the front door for cleanliness and to respect neighbors.
Snacks for guests are in glass jars on counter in common room, tea bags for hot tea on common room table, iced herbal teas in glass pitchers on top shelf of fridge. If you are a big snacker, supplement with your own. PLEASE ENJOY SNACKS AND TEA BUT BE COURTEOUS AND SAVE SOME FOR OTHERS!
Sorry, all other food in fridge and cabinets is host food and should not be eaten by guests. Due to budget accommodation prices, all food and cooking supplies, aside from listed snacks and teas, should be purchased by guests, unless otherwise noted.
All guest food should be kept in fridge to prevent pests. This includes any food in your luggage, including unopened packages of snacks, pasta, rice, bread, etc. No food trash is permitted in bedroom or bathroom trash cans.
**Please inform me in advance if you wish to cook or to store more than a few groceries in the fridge.
Guests should not wipe makeup on towels or wash cloths. It doesn't come out. You are responsible for bringing your own make up pads and remover. No nail polish application in the apartment, as it can be unpleasant for others. You are welcomed to sit on the patio and apply nail polish.
WHEN I AM TRAVELING
As posted in my listings, I periodically travel for work or family. I will keep you informed about my schedule and whether I will be at the apt for your stay before you check in. As my reviews show, I have hosted plentiful guests while on the road. While traveling, I hire cleaning services and/or have a housesitter who cleans thoroughly once a week, tidies in between, and also is keen to connect with guests about all things NOLA since she grew up here! However, guests are responsible for keeping their space tidy, along with washing and replacing linens, when I am not in town, which accounts for my lowered rates.
This can easily be done on day of check out while packing, having breakfast, etc. I have a free washer/dryer in a little house on the patio, along with laundry soap, and check-out instructions on a white board in the Common Room, which makes it quite simple. You'll just need to leave enough time, about an hour, to cycle through both washer/dryer, replace linens, and return room to original mint condition in which it was found. The very modest $20 cleaning fee ($40 for more than a week) on my listings contributes to regular housekeeping services, including full apt cleaning and grounds upkeep, touch up room cleaning, along with natural cleaning supplies, which cost more than conventional chemicals. Alternately, guests may request maid services in advance, specifically for their room check-out, at an additional local, going rate of $100 per room.
Lost keys will be charged $50. Please, be sure to return key upon checkout or cost of lost key + $50 and/or cost of lock change will be assessed.
SECURING YOUR BELONGINGS
Please bring a lockbox, passport holder and/or other method of securing your personal belongings as you see fit.
