À propos de ce logement
Tucked away next to the Mississippi River, you will find no other place quite like this in New Orleans. Built in 1930, this cottage has soaring ceilings and tons of natural light. In addition to your private cottage you can also enjoy the outside patio and garden area and even feed the chickens if you like. They're very friendly and we've found that a great way to enjoy your morning coffee is just sitting down and watching "Chicken TV".
This is a gorgeous 400 square foot studio located on our micro farm. The cottage is modern, fresh and private, bursting with clean lines, lots of natural light, and a serene quietness. You will have your own private bathroom, queen bed, full kitchen, and lounge area. Upon prior request, we will deliver a farm-to-plate breakfast of eggs, fresh bread, jam and coffee. You can bring your own food if you don't plan on eating out for meals, but the food in New Orleans is amazing and inexpensive if you do it right. We will leave a list of our favorite spots around town.
Our small environmentally-conscious and modern farm is a dream come true - and we are excited to share it with you during your stay! You will love it here. It is the perfect place to write, relax, read, take photos, celebrate, and/or get away and recharge for a bit. Though, all that the amazing city of New Orleans has to offer is just minutes away.

We are committed to respecting your privacy but we also want to make sure you have the best possible experience while you're in New Orleans. We live on the property and are happy to answer any questions and help you make friends with the city, but if you're looking to be left alone, we are good at that too.
If you want to get your hands dirty and help out with the chickens, weeding and harvesting in the garden, or any other farm tasks, let us know! We love helpers :)
Holy Cross is just a stone's throw away from the French Quarter, Bywater, and Marigny, but the access to the levee, quiet of the neighborhood, and Mighty Mississippi only a block away make it quite the retreat.
The neighborhood may not be for everyone. It is very quiet and residential, and the closest bar/restaurant (Bacchanal - a fantastic wine bar) is a mile away. You will not rub elbows with other tourists in this part of town, though you will encounter artists, fishermen, and families out on the levee, walking dogs, jogging, and enjoying the view of the river and skyline. The neighborhood is changing rapidly, with many houses being remodeled and reclaimed. If you're looking for interesting architecture, friendly neighbors, and a truly local experience, this can't be beat.
Keep in mind that we are only 3 miles (a quick uber ride, a gorgeous bike ride or a long meandering walk) from the French Quarter, but it feels worlds away. Walk on the levee at sunset, breathe in the smell of the river, feel like a local.
A car or bike is essential to getting around town, though New Orleans is best seen by bike. A taxi or uber is always just a call away. There is a bus stop approximately 4 blocks from the house if you prefer.
We're happy to store bikes in the backyard. If you're relying on taxis or uber we'll shoot you a text if we're headed uptown as we're happy to drop you off in the quarter :)
We have two very friendly dogs named Iggy (a westie) and Puna (baby German Shepherd). They usually hang out on the front porch of our house, but you may see them roaming the backyard with the chickens.
Due to boat traffic on the river (yes we are that close!) wifi on the property works for email, maps, and general browsing. Streaming movies are often interrupted, so if your idea of a great vacation is to catch up on Netflix, this may not be the best listing for you.
If you're looking for something slightly more upscale, the luxury guest wing of our historic double shotgun is also available for rent and can be viewed at "Urban Farm Suite- Private Entrance & Bath."
