Studio Ste Marie is a charming studio style cottage set in a lush private garden in Faubourg St. John, near City Park. Built with recycled materials; beaded walls and ceilings, hand hewn details, vintage style bathroom, all new appliances.

The space

Studio Ste Marie is charmingly furnished with an eclectic furniture mix and a library filled with books on design, art, music, and New Orleans history and culture. There is a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, convection toaster oven & cooking surface; full bath with a vintage sink and claw foot tub with a victorian style shower. Furnishings include a queen size bed, comfortable lounge chair, plenty of clothing storage and a dining table and chairs. We provide dishes, cookware, coffee, teas, spices, and snacks, and bed, bath, and kitchen linens. Guests need bring only their personal items, we supply the rest. The garden is planted with fragrant citrus trees, herb garden, and flowers. Studio Ste. Marie was built using recycled building materials from the property's original garage that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The ceiling soars to a high beadboard ceiling with exposed beams. The shelves, cabinets and a bathroom board wall were constructed from cypress beams and siding salvaged from the original garage.

Guest access

Our guests have access to a lovely private garden with two dining areas, lounge chairs, refreshing fountain, an outdoor sink, and a barbeque grill. There are two bicycles available for your use. Free wi-fi and utilities included.

Interaction with guests

Hosts live in the main house on the property, a 1912 bungalow, and are available for anything guests may desire. We respect our guests privacy. Studio Ste. Marie is a separate building from the main house, & has its own private entrance, although we share the garden. We have lived here since 1994, and are New Orleans natives. We know just about everything there is to know about our beautiful New Orleans, and are ready to share our knowledge. However, if guests prefer minimum interaction, we offer the highest discretion.

Other things to note

Our guests rave about their stay at Studio Ste Marie. The cottage is filled with light. It is said to have a healing and spiritual atmosphere. It is perfect for engaging in creative work and thinking, or just relaxing.

The place was adorable and the location was perfect and quiet. Quick lyft rides into the city. Mark let us checkin early since we landed early. Bed was comfortable. Fridge had snacks and water/wine. It was our first time staying with Mark and it was an amazing trip to NOLA. Mark gave us complete privacy. Awesome place and awesome host!!

Mark is a great host and we loved the Cozy Cottage and its sweet courtyard! It is located in a safe, convenient location in a friendly neighborhood near a great grocery store and bus line that takes you right into town.

We had a wonderful visit. The cottage was exactly as described. Mark both gave us privacy and answered our questions. He shared expertise about restaurants and car repair. The bicycles were a great convenience and pleasure for touring nearby City Park and getting around Frenchmen St. and the French Quarter. Bayou St. John is a lovely quiet neighborhood with small grocery stores and many cafes and restaurants. The bus to Uptown is a block away.

The cottage was wonderful and just as described! It is in such a beautiful neighborhood and we spent long walks just looking at houses. The garden is a picture perfect retreat after a bustling night out in the French quarter. Mark was a perfect host and nothing was amiss. Hopefully we can return soon to this magical place!

I am an artist, both graphic designer and a guitarist. I have also managed the Music Office Co-Op for the Tipitina's Foundation here in New Orleans since 2004. I love art, philosophy, both big and small ideas, small animals (I have two tabby cats, one orange and one light gray), playing live music (most of all Chicago blues and related "Roots"music), and especially my friends and my home. I've lived in New Orleans since 1983, and here in my home in beautiful Faubourg St. John since 1995. I'm recently widowed, but my wife Patricia's spirit and sense of fun and beauty lives on, here in our home.
