If you’re going to visit New Orleans, you should feel like you are in New Orleans. Built in the 1820s, this a Creole cottage, with front and rear balconies, high ceilings, ceiling fans, hard pine floors and slate mantles, feels like the Crescent City.
But the house is also loaded with modern creature comforts like a whirlpool tub, a gourmet Miele stove and central air and heat. This two-bedroom house can sleep up to six people. In addition to the master bathroom, there is a separate full bath with a shower and a half bath downstairs. In front of the house is a small citrus grove which perfumes the air when the trees are in season. At other times of the year, the night blooming jasmine wafts through the air as the sun goes down. There is free wifi and two HD televisions and a stereo with speakers that play throughout the house.
Part of the charm of this house is its location near the center of New Orleans culture. Located 2 blocks from the French Quarter on one of the wider residential streets in old New Orleans, this house offers the convenience of access to New Orleans night life when you want it and the quiet seclusion of a neighborhood when you don’t. The best of New Orleans culture is within easy walking distance. At the corner is St. Augustine Catholic Church, which dates back to 1842. Around one corner is the Back Street Cultural Museum. Around another corner is the New Orleans African American Museum. You walk to the French Quarter, the Marigny, Canal St and Esplanade and from these points you can take public transportation to anywhere in the city. On most Sundays during the fall, one or another social aid and pleasure club is apt to pass along during its second line parade.
Among the eateries in easy walking distance are Lil Dizzy’s, Restaurant Stanley, Meaux Bar Bistro, Tujague’s, Coop’s, Fiorella’s, Irene’s Cuisine, Maximo’s Italian Grill, Cafe du Monde and Camellia Grill. The nightclubs of Frenchmen Street are about 10 blocks away.

I recently booked this marvelous house for a girls trip in NOLA. The house was spacious enough for 7 girls with enough sleeping space and bathrooms so everyone was able to have their own space. The house was perfectly described in pictures and we absolutely loved the spiral staircase! A big bonus was that there were many towels stocked in each bathroom - an essential for 7 girls!
We were very happy with our rental for the weekend as it truly made our NOLA experience a blast! Since it was located close to the French Quarter, we were able to walk out and explore the area during the day.
Transaction including arrival and departure was seamless. Property has a lot of local character and is within easy walking distance to the heart of the action in the French Quarter. Its great to not have to worry about/pay for parking! Would absolutely stay again.
We stayed at the Treme Creole Cottage over Mardi Gras and it was exactly what the 4 of us needed. It was large enough to give everyone their own space and was a lot quieter than I expected for an older house. The location was excellent, within a 10 minute walk of where we wanted to be, but also far enough away that we weren't bothered by all the activities that were going on during Mardi Gras.
We would definitely stay there again and everyone had nothing but great things to say about it. Thanks Lolis!
We had a great time. The house was a convenient walk to the French Quarter, we were able to accommodate everyone in our party and by the end of the first day, every time we came back to the house we felt like we were coming home.
Our stay at the Treme Creole Cottage was lovely. The house was as pictured & described, if not better! It had tons of character and neat decor throughout and amply accommodated our group of 5. It made you feel like you were truly living in Nola, not staying at some generic hotel. We found the house to be close to everywhere we wanted to be and walked everywhere. Lolis wasn't in town but made sure to give us two contacts during our stay, one of whom stopped by at the beginning and end of our visit to make sure we had everything we needed. Lolis was also communicative and responsive in changing the length of our reservation due to an planning error on my part, which was much appreciated. I highly recommend this property and host and would absolutely stay there again!
The house is large and a good place to stay. The whirlpool bathtub was an awesome amenity. The house looks a little newer/cleaner in the pictures, but is otherwise true to description. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the French Quarter.
Lolis's place was great. A perfect place to stay when visiting NOLA, just few minutes walk to the wonderful French Quarter.
There is only one shower though, the main bathroom just has a hot tub. So might be a little tough for a big group to get ready quickly.
But all in all a great place and I highly recommend it.

After spending most of my life in my hometown, these days I divide my time between New Orleans and Los Angeles, where I write for television. I’m also a documentary film maker and this house is featured in a film I made with director Dawn Logsdon entitled, “Faubourg Treme.” ((website hidden)) I bought this house about 20 years ago and have lovingly refurbished it, maintaining much of its old charm, but also updating many of its features.
