Semi-private room* in a cute and cozy shotgun house in the Marigny. 15 minute walk to the French Quarter, 12 minutes to Frenchmen St., 2 minutes to the Bywater. Located around the corner from a few restaurants, bars, a coffee shop, and grocery store.

*Note, this room is yours and yours alone, but people have to walk through it to get to their room.

The space

The house is a classic shotgun, a very common style of architecture for homes here in New Orleans. Our bedroom is the first room in the house, and we rent the next three rooms to guests (see our profile for links to the other rooms). Each room is arranged one behind the other. You will be walking through all of our bedrooms to get to your room, and while you'll have your room to yourself, people will need to walk below your loft to access the kitchen, other bedrooms, backyard, and bathroom. Both doorways have doors which you can close for more privacy.

Please look through our photos to see the "blueprints" of our house, this will give you an idea to how it's laid out.

Your room is the fourth room in the house, next to the kitchen. It comes furnished with a full size bed, bright lamp for reading, Christmas lights, fresh sheets, clean blankets, pillows, and towels - and it's on a loft!! Below the loft is our hangout room, where you are more than welcome to hangout and stretch your legs all you want.

Guest access

The house has six rooms including a bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub, and a large, brand new kitchen equipped with: a dishwasher, double sink, refrigerator, dinner table, and is well stocked with all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils you'll need to make a nice meal at home. You're also welcome to use our washer and dryer, located in the kitchen.

Other things to note


Q: Do you have wifi
A: YES! Airbnb should send you our wifi handle and password after you confirm the booking. If not, we've got it written down in the house.

Q: Is there free parking on the street?
A: Yes, parking in the Marigny is free. You can often nab a spot right around the corner, if not right out front.

Q: Is it safe to walk to and from the French Quarter at night?
A: We've never had a problem with it, at 3pm, at 9pm, at 5am, etc. That being said, walking with your DSLR hanging off your shoulder at 1am probably isn't a smart move, but that'd be true in any city. Stay alert, we have had guests get mugged in the French Quarter! A cab/ride share from the French Quarter to our house will run $5-10 depending on the night.

Nice quite area. Katie & Matthijs were very accommodating and informative. Cool to hang out with them. The loft was too tight for us and crawling on the knees was a killer for me(you can't stand up). We're getting too old for that! We want the bedroom next time guys. We were there only for the one night, so we survived. We're not used to walking, so there is a bit of a jaunt to the French Quarter. UBER!! Halloween is a crazy time in New Orleans! We've never seen so many awesome hand-made costumes. Katie & Mattthijs had one of the best with giant head caricatures that looked just like their dogs! This may be a new annual ritual for Halloween!

Katie and Matthijs were incredibly warm and welcoming! They were so kind to be flexible with our schedule and made us feel at home immeadiately. We thought the lofted bed room was super cool and a unique experience! The location is absolutely prime and confirmed Marigny and Bywater to be my favorite neighborhood to stay in. Hopefully we'll see them and their cute pups again down the road!

Interaction with guests

Matthijs and I are two friendly, open-minded, creative folks looking to provide an affordable, clean, and comfortable space for travelers in one of the best neighborhoods in this great city. We are happy to help you plan an itinerary for your days if you tell us what you're interested in seeing.

We love hanging out with guests who want to hangout. We love leaving guests alone who want to be left alone. If you want to go out on the town with us, let us know and if we're not staying in for the night we'll definitely join you. If you'd like to share a home-cooked meal, we are down! The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.

We have a chihuahua named Mister who is cute and cranky. He will leave you alone if you leave him alone, if you try to pet him he will be unpleasant. We also have a mutt named Huxley who is extremely friendly, and a bit wild. Huxley will let you pet the hell out of him, he gives hugs too. Both dogs will bark their heads off when you enter the house.
