Where you’ll be

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

The historic & unique Marigny/Bywater was the first suburb below the original French Quarter. Immigrants & free people of color first settled in the neighborhood enriching with culture, arts and music. Cafes, restaurants/bars, food co-op, Crescent City Park on the Mississippi river (5 blocks from rental), art studios/museums, and live music all within 1-5 minute leisurely walk from the property. A vibrant area walking distance to everything!
