The perfect blend of Creole architecture with modern design, our lovingly restored mansion sits in the heart of the historic Marigny / Bywater neighborhood... a stones throw from the French Quarter.

The space

Welcome to our gorgeous single family home in the heart of New Orleans, in the heart of the Marigny and close to the Quarter. An award-winning 19th century masterpiece, the entire double shotgun has been converted to a spacious single-family estate and updated with the latest amenities.

"An elegant chorus of color, pattern, and texture," says the Architectural Digest photographer who recently visited our home. Here, we have blended comfort with style, showcasing items that we've collected over the past decade locally and from around the world. The decor blends mid-century modern with a good bit of antiques, as well as kitsch and various oddities.

The 3000+ sq foot home offers 4 sumptuous bedrooms (bedroom 1 with a king bed, bedroom 2 with a king bed, bedroom 3 with a queen bed, and bedroom 4 with 2 full beds), as well as a private office (fifth bedroom convert) that features two twin day beds. Two additional twin beds can be set up in the common spaces or in the bedrooms. All beds feature Tempur-pedic mattresses, down or down alternative duvets and pillows, and silky sheets. The house also has two full bathrooms and one half bathroom. One bathroom offers a ginormous 80 sq foot rain shower with multiple shower heads and a double sink vanity. The other bathroom offers a giant soaking tub, perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring the city. You will also find heaps of oversized cotton bath towels, along with a half bathroom off the living area.

The features that distinguish this property include soaring 12' ceilings, re-finished heart of pine hardwood floors, 120-year old crown moldings, original 19th century doors, Carrara marble countertops, and truly thoughtful finishes.

The common spaces provide more than ample space for well over a dozen people. The parlour is the first room on the entertaining side of the house, which leads into a 20' galley Chef's kitchen with double ovens, gas stoves, and tons of marble counterspace and cabinets; equipped with extensive Cookware and service for 24 people. There is a large Restoration Hardware dining table that can easily seat 10-12 people. Following that, there is a large family room with a ever-so-inviting custom made linen sofa, multiple arm chairs, and a 55" Smart LCD television loaded with Netflix, Hulu, etc. Adjacent is an office with daybed and accent chairs.

The outdoor porch patio and garden space suits any occasion, decorated with palm trees and other local flora. We have hosted Crawfish boils and other events with over 20 guests in this space, and it is perfect setting to relax and pass time during warm New Orleans evenings.

Other features of the property include surround-sound Sonos stereo throughout the property, blazing fast Wi-Fi, and (highly effective) central air conditioning.

We have put significant time, energy, and heart into designing the perfect space. We hope you enjoy it to the extent we do and treat it with utmost respect.

The house is in a great location - the neighbourhood feels very safe and easy access to the wonderful Frenchman Street is a huge bonus. The house is beautifully furnished and comfortably housed our group of 8...the huge walk-in shower is a great feature too. I couldn't recommend the house itself more and Francis makes the whole process of staying there incredibly straightforward with useful guidelines and tips.

Beautiful house and great nicely equipped. Ubered to the grocery store and picked up a few things so we didn't have to eat out every meal. Awesome to have a washer, dryer, dishwasher and iron available - made the stay really nice. Easy to Uber or walk to most locations. We were a large group and had a great time.

We brought 10 guests in for my husband's 40th birthday. The home fit our needs perfectly, but it was no clean at checkin. This was a major miss and made our first day very stressful because the cleaners were there while our guests were there and one of them brought their child. Since we had to wait for the bathrooms to be cleaned, we had to rush to prepare for our dinner reservations and barely made it on time. We were told this was the first time that happened, but it tainted our experience. They did refund the cleaning fee, but the irony was that the cleaners arrived immediately at 11am for checkout after having to clean 3 1/2 hours after checkin. The location was close to the FQ and Harrah's Casino, which was awesome and only a $10 uber ride away, but a low income area of town is literally blocks away. This was a concern before booking, but the host painted the neighborhood as being unique. For instance, the closest grocery store was an abandoned Winn Dixie and the next closest option was a Save a Lot. We were told many bars and restaurants are within walking distance, but we didnt see many tourists walking the streets. Overall, the interior of the home matched the photos 100% and the huge shower was an awesome amenity and we all loved the home, but would have preferred a better area.

I hosted a bachelorette party with 11 adults here and it was perfect. Not everyone wanted to party all the time and this gave us a beautiful home base for everyone to hang out outside of Bourbon or Frenchman Street. We all felt safe walking to the French Quarter, but more often than not we chose to take a (very cheap) uber. The host was very responsive and everyone felt good about their sleeping arrangements. Though some people were wary of the location coming in, everyone left VERY happy at the end of the weekend. And did I mention how BIG and NICE the place is? Also very important - there is a giant shower with all sorts of knobs and nozzles which is equal parts amazing and hilarious. Book with confidence!

Francis' home was incredible! As soon as we walked in the door our jaws dropped. Everything from the decor, to the amazing master bath was perfect. Check-in was super easy with the code lock and we were given some great suggestions for restaurants/bars nearby. They have plenty of towels, toiletries and outlets-- super important for a group of 11 girls! :) There was plenty of space for everyone. Also, a great location-- while we didn't do much walking in the neighborhood, all of our Uber's (to Frenchman St. and French Quarter) averaged $8. Overall a great stay!
