About this listing
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.

Lolis' apartment provided a perfect location and experience of the New Orleans life. The French quarter is within walking distance and we very rarely felt the need to get a taxi. The apartment itself was lovely and again provided an authentic feel to our visit! It was well kitted out, AC was perfect and Lolis made sure everything we needed was available. 4 of us stayed and there was more than enough room throughout the house. Highly recommended and would happily stay again!
Working with Lolis was super easy. He was responsive and helpful before and during our trip. The place is perfectly located and made walking down to the French Quarter a chinch. The place was clean and looked very much like the pictures. The books in the second bed room are amazing. I spent hours just reading the titles! We will stay there again next time we visit!
Lolis's house was easy to find and checking in was seamless thanks to good instructions. The air con was on when we arrived which was a nice touch (given the heat outside in July!) and the interior lived up to the photos provided.
The house really is beautifully renovated and decorated very tastefully. The downstairs area is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. The upstairs area, with the two main rooms, is very nice with floor to ceiling bookcases lining one of the rooms.
The neighbourhood Treme was a great area to stay as it was very friendly and close to the French quarter but much more relaxed.
Lolis' cottage was so lovely. The pics don't really do the space justice. If there was anything needed, all we had to do was make a call or shoot a text and Lolis and/or his support staff were available to assist us. The space was located in convenient proximity to the French Quarter and the neighborhood gems (African American Museum, cafes, convenient stores, easy travel access) make the neighborhood as lovely as the cottage. I would definitely recommend this listing to a larger group (4-6 people) or even a double-date couples get-a-way.
I had a great time at the Treme Creole Cottage, we would recommend staying here! The decor and the character of the house felt like an authentic New Orleans experience. The house was close to the quarter, just a short walk to everything we wanted to see and do. Treme street was pretty quiet, and we felt comfortable walking back late at night.
Lolis was helpful and available for questions.
Eclectic house in a great location! A great place to feel immersed in Nola. 2 blocks away is Treme coffee, which has an excellent soy latte, then Tonique for gin fizz and Manchu for some wings and only wings!
Great place in a cool neighborhood. Well described in listing and met expectations.

About the Host, Lolis
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.
