Private: a cozy, private room in the heart of the beautiful & charming original Faubourg Marigny. this is just THREE blocks from Frenchmen Street, with a treehouse view, French doors, a supercomfy queen mattress on a modern, platform bed, & dog kisses. (NOTE: this room has French doors with added privacy curtains; it is completely private, & unlike a shotgun, no one will be walking through to access anything. the air mattress can provide accommodations for a third guest, but please chat with me about this prior to booking.)
it's just three blocks to all the hot-spots, live music, restaurants, & excitement of Frenchmen. a few short blocks along there lead you into the French Quarter, the Mississippi Riverfront, the world-famous French Market, & a ferry to Algiers Point. it's so close you can even make use of the pedi-cab (hirable bike taxi) service both ways. we are just 2 blocks from the closest airport shuttle location, 1/4 mile from the interstate exit, & 1/2 block from a major city bus line heading straight along the length of the neighboring French Quarter & Treme', or oppositely heading deep into the Bywater Arts District, but these neighborhoods are just minutes of walking or biking as well. multiple other citywide public transit options are available in just 1 - 3 blocks should you choose not to walk or rent the bikes. neighborhood music clubs, cafés, coffee houses, restaurants, live theater/comedy/burlesque venues, gourmet brick-oven pizza (available by the slice), a gym, yoga & fitness center, spa massage, package liquor, a food co-op, washeteria, community parks, 24-hour pubs, a 24-hour organic grocery & deli, fast food, beauty salon, gas station, & national drug store, are all within 5 blocks. another five blocks adds a public library, country/swim club with a heated saltwater pool, sno-ball stand, & historic cemetery to the mix. thrift/antique stores & art galleries abound. this location has plenty of nearby international dining options for those interested in more than Creole & Cajun fare, & some great vegetarian options as well, of which i know *nearly* all.

Want to try out any number of free, citywide social bike rides? i know just where to find them. ((:
this is a recently renovated, 2nd-floor, camel-back above a historic, double-shotgun home, with all wood & stone floors, & gorgeous courtyard/tropical views below from the deck at our entrance in the rear. very clean, peaceful, & secure environment. free, shaded, residential, on-street parking in front.
fresh, clean linens, blankets, towels, a stuffed puppy, & four pillows are provided, as well as a new, memory foam mattress pad; natural, plant-based detergents are used. simple breakfast items (fruits, bread, oatmeal, butter, jam, etc.) & milk, juice, & coffee are here, as well as plenty of home-brewed peppermint iced tea.
powerful house AC & softly filtered light allow for naps at any time of day, & curtains are an adjustable slidey combination of blackouts for late sleepers &/or sheers for natural light. your room is equipped with two windows, individual brand-new window AC, stainless percolator (with fresh local coffee, tea bags, organic raw sugar, coconut milk, & mugs), BRITA water filter, dresser, nightstand, lamp, clock, ceiling fan with light, box fan, space heater, lounge chair, grounded surge protector, hi-speed USB outlet, night light, cubby cubes, steam iron, towel rack, & tailor's rack for storage.

two well-maintained, cruiser bikes with locks, official bike maps, helmets, & safety lights can be rented as follows, (first-reserved/first-served) each:
*$10 / single day, or
*$20 / entire stay.
...plus an additional, fully refundable security deposit; just ask!! ((:
the apartment is occupied by me & my very sweet, sociable, & well-behaved, 5-year-old, medium-sized dog, Poochini. she sleeps with me, but is happily available for petting or snuggling, & has been a very popular guest favorite; see the reviews for plenty of information. she is very short haired & has her own kennel for when i am out if she is not with me on the bike, which is often. you do not have to *love* dogs, but you should probably just be comfortable around an easygoing & lovable dog. <3
flexible hours; can accommodate all types of schedules; no curfews. last-minute reservations happily accepted when possible. check out my semi-private listing as well; discounts available if both listings booked together. see you soon! ((-:
this location has a shared-space listing as well, with a privacy-curtained loft bed, which may be booked by one or two guests; you will be briefly passing through that space into yours, which is completely private. (the kitchen is part of that large room, so if it is occupied, filming Iron Chef: Breakfast Edition at 6am is probably a bad idea. otherwise, their curtains provide as much privacy as they would like around their loft bed.)
***the G-map view shows construction on brick building across the street; this is now fully completed & landscaped.

Yvonne was such an amazing host, very welcoming and new so much about the area. I really enjoyed my stay at her place, it was such a cool apartment and the room such a great room. Everything you need is there, and you get the privacy you need too. I really appreciated being able to hire a bike off her, and it made exploring the nearby area a lot easier. The Marigny is a fun area, lots of cool cafes and bars around... Bywater is nearby, as is the Frenchman St and the French Quarter. All in all, a very pleasant stay for my brief time in New Orleans, and a great base for getting around and exploring the vibrant cityscape.
Yvonne is a lovely host! She provided great details about what to do and where to go (she has a binder of resources) we had a great stay. It is within 30 min walk to the quarter and the neighbourhood has lots to offer. Yvonne works hard to keep the place tidy and with a serious knee injury I was impressed to come home to a refreshed bedroom with coffee, tea and water and fresh glasses and snacks everyday! Poochini is a doll and deserves a shout out. Overall great first experience.
Yvonne and Poochini made us feel right at home. We had a fantastic stay! Thanks Yvonne!
Yvonne is a lovely and hospitable host, and her apartment is located in a a fantastic New Orleans neighborhood. The location is convenient to the French Quarter on foot and nearly everywhere else by foot. The Marigny itself has a number of cafes, eateries, nightlife to keep you busy as well. The room was clean, maintained daily (which I did not expect!), and stocked with coffee. I would happily stay here again.
Yvonne's a caring host who goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. For the area, you definitely can't beat the price! It was perfect for our one night stay in New Orleans.
Ottima la posizione, vicino anche a un coffee molto carino dove far colazione. Yvonne gentilissima, molto carina.. Organizzatissima, conserva tutti i menù dei locali nelle vicinanze in modo da indirizzarti.
La casa in generale un po' disordinata però la stanza è bella, un bel letto e molto pulita.
Lo consiglierei senz'altro.
grazie per la bella recensione, Davide, e che era veramente un piacere ospitarvi & Max. (: Ho cercato di essere organizzata come lei ha ricordato, ma con il mio infortunio e immobilizzazione, ho mantenuto pulito come una priorità con l'aiuto dei miei amici, ma portando le cose e mettere in ordine non è stato troppo facile, di sicuro, & i hanno appena priorità degli spazi per essere il più perfetto possibile. anche grazie per la vostra pazienza.

Yvonne is a really lovely person who couldn't be more welcoming and friendly, she is super helpful with information about New Orleans and getting around, and the room is really comfortable with everything you could need provided. Poochie is adorable!
Yvonne was really helpful--I needed a place to stay for one night on short notice and Yvonne came through. The room was really nice and spacious--the bed was super comfy and I literally slept for a full 12 hours after a long day of traveling to get there. The location was great too, easy to walk to a few cafes and a close enough walk to get to Frenchmen St. Also, Poochie is adorable and super sweet!
Yvonne was the warmest and most accommodating host I have every stayed with! She goes above and beyond to make sure guests have a great experience in NOLA, from offering suggestions of places to visit, to having recent news/events and maps available. Her friendliness and kindness was much appreciated! The room was spacious and very comfortable. Would definitely stay with again if I ever return to The Big Easy!
Yvonne was a tremendous hostess. The guest room was very comfortable, location was an easy walk to Frenchmen st and Yvonne had loads of information on local establishments. I would highly recommend this place to someone looking for a convenient location by Frenchmen st and the French quarter.
