Shaded by banana leaves & palm trees, " The Marigny" is a liberated village where stargazers & daydreamers lounge in cafés amidst rows of French & Spanish architecture splashed in tropical colors. This is a cosmopolitan neighborhood, that offers a colorful cityscape, lots of history, & laid-back comfort with residents from all over the world. Just steps away from the French Quarter, catch live music, tour a rum distillery & experience the creative culture buzzing the district.
This home was one of the first homes built in the 1800's when settlers developed neighborhoods such as the Faubourg Marigny outside of the French Quarter. My home has lots of original character and charm. It has hardwood floors, exposed brick, high ceilings, sealed fireplaces, fans in every room, air conditioning/heat, natural sunlight, large windows, working shutters, cozy furnishings and modern appliances. It's simple but charming.
This is a New Orleans classic style "shotgun double" home which is essentially two houses under one roof, side by side to each other.
As a result, all confirmed guests will have access to:
* 2 bedrooms (each with a Queen size bed)
* 2 bathrooms (one with shower/tub duo; one with standing shower only)
* 2 fully stocked kitchens with all major appliances, dishes and cookware
*Private access to the lush outdoor space where you can enter/exit each side of the home easily and privately OR simply relax while enjoying your morning cup of coffee.
This double house is perfect for families, large groups and guests who would like more space to spread out while having outdoor access.
Interaction with guests
I am available 24/7 or as needed for my guests throughout their reservation.
Other things to note
Providing my guests with a clean and comfortable accommodation where every detail has been considered and put properly in its place requires time from my professional housekeeper.
As a result, I offer check-in as early as 4:00p to ensure that my home is ready for your arrival.
Depending on my calendar and my prior guest's checkout process, early check-in can be accommodated as early as 2:00p for an additional charge of $25. Most importantly, if I can provide check-in earlier than 2:00p then I will more than gladly inform you ahead of time.
If that is something you are interested in setting up prior to your arrival please let me know so that I can discuss available time parameters according to your arrival time.
All guests arriving after 6pm will be self check-in however, I will try my best to personally welcome you and give you a tour of my space. As your host I will be in touch with you prior to your arrival for specifics on the key pick-up location.
LATE CHECK OUT (LUGGAGE STORAGE):
Depending on our calendar we may or may not be able to accommodate a late checkout or luggage storage until your flight. If a late checkout/luggage storage can be accommodated then we charge a $25 fee. This $25 fee will be sent via a separate Airbnb invoice.
There is street (parallel) parking throughout the neighborhood. Parking is easily accessible but we do not have a private garage or driveway for use.

Learn about this field
I am a fourth generation New Orleanian, entrepreneur, and foodie. I was resident of New York City for eleven years where I worked I owned an event design and fabrication shop in the Brooklyn Navy Yard neighborhood.
Needless to say, after one too many months of winter, I hesitantly packed up my life (and my business) and relocated back home to NOLA ... that was almost 2 years ago and it was the best decision of my life.
I LOVE my city and I have traveled the world but nothing beats the rich culture, relaxed vibe and THE PEOPLE of New Orleans.
My day to day now includes practicing yoga, managing my company, hosting awesome Airbnb'ers, biking the city, festival hopping, second lining on Sundays and (all too often) over-indulging at local restaurants :)
Thank you for considering my listing for your NOLA Airbnb. I look forward to hosting you at my home as you experience my charming city with me.
See you soon!!
