About the area

We are located in a quiet neighborhood only 1 block form the French Quarter and 1 block from Bourbon St. THE HISTORY OF THIS AMAZING HOME This elegantly decorated Creole Cottage built, "of columbage and bricked between post" circa. 1808, is one of the rarest examples of early Creole cottage architecture remaining to date. This home is in the first subdivision of New Orleans named Faubourg Marigny. The plantation was subdivided in March 16 1806. This home retains almost all of its original architectural features including; its rare Ram's horn hinges and original latches on the French glass doors. There are also very outstanding long latches which were used to open and close the doors. The ceilings are original and are "dressed and beaded" which are rare to find intact to day. The mantels are the most distinguishing interior elements in Creole domestic architecture. Two of the mantels are box mantels in the style dating from the late 1700's to 1810 with columns supporting a frieze having strong horizontal moldings. The floors are beautiful large plank and the original moldings are intact. This property was sold to one of the first women of color to purchase property in the United States. Madame Magdalene Baure' purchased three lots which now form the sites of 1426 and 1434 Burgundy and of 928, 930 and 934 Kerlerec. This property now has 4 other cottages, two of which were believed to be very early barge board cottages from the early 1800's most likely moved here at a later date. There is also a servant's quarter at the back which is possibly one of the early buildings on the property. The main house and other cottages all have the conveniences of the modern home. This property is now a very quaint and lovely Guest House. Experience the amazing architecture very few ever get to see in an elegantly decorated home constructed 200 years age.

“Awesome Stay!”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2016

Jody was extremely responsive and actively communicating with us before our trip. Our group was there for a bachelorette party and it could not have gone more smoothly. We were a group of 12 and the house was very spacious and location was ideal. We were walking distance from everything. Would definitely recommend it!

“Bridal Girls Retreat”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2016

We had a total of 7 girls go on this trip and we absolutely love the home. Each bed room is good size. If you get the bedroom that is connected to the master you can hear everything one another is doing! The master bathroom and walk in closet is a plus! The upstairs is awesome! We wished there was another couch upstairs it was hard to fit all of us up there to lounge. The Kitchen is fully stocked! Dishes were dirt but that's an easy fix. Wish there were bigger trash cans especially in the kitchen! The location of the home is perfect you can walk to everything! Or get an uber and it still be inexpensive! The homeowner was so helpful and sweet! I loved how clean and open the layout of the home was. Although there is stairs it it's not bad!

“Perfect place for a large group!!”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2016

This house is AMAZING!! We are so happy to have found it!! It was not only beautifully decorated but it was clean, spacious and private! Walking distance to Frenchman and bourbon street, but away from the chaos. Trinna, Tony and Scott were SO easy to work with! We had a party of 13 and had plenty of room to spare! The historic details are an added bonus.. Just a beautiful property!

“Awesome vacation”

Great place to stay. All amenities could have only been better if we had a personal maid. (LOL) Very convenient to public transportation and all the main attractions downtown. Would difently book again and will be recommending to family and friends.

“Amazing stay for our wedding”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

We rented the home to share with our families who came to join us for our wedding. The home was extremely comfortable and had everything we would possibly have needed. The only thing that would have made it 200% amazing would have been to have the AC on ahead of time for our arrival. (But that is very minor). With separate AC units for all three floors, it was very easy to maintain a comfortable temperature in the home. We had a wonderful time and our children almost never left the pool. The neighborhood was safe and had adequate parking as well. We already plan on returning as soon as we can.

Owner's reply: Nicole, Thanks so much for the review! I am thrilled that you guys had a great Wedding. We do strive to make our home as comfortable as possible for our guests. The one thing we strive for is Privacy! We try not to bother our guests after they check-in. Unless we are needed for any reason. I agree that the A/C should have been on 68 degrees. The day before you guys arrive. We try to double check this! So sorry that this was not done! Very pleased that you were cooled off promptly.

“Perfect location!”

Reviewed 27 May 2014

We came here on a bachelor party with 10 people. It is literally the perfect location. The walk to the Opposite side of the French quarter is only 15 minutes. Cross the street and you're on bourbon street in three minutes. Great food around there too. Everybody loved the place. What we loved the most was the front deck and the back patio. The front office made it very easy and had great recommendations. The house is slightly old but that didn't effect our weekend at all

“Great spot to stay when visiting NOLA!”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2013

We came in Thursday afternoon for a girls weekend! Larry was super easy to work with leading up to the trip! The house was so close to Frenchman street. We were able to walk to dinner at Melange and then hit up DBA for drinks. Friday and Saturday we were able to walk to Bourbon in about 10 minutes. Saturday we cooked in and Larry's son was very helpful with figuring out how to work the stove :) It was so much better to all be in a house rather than separate hotel rooms! We didn't have to bring anything but groceries- linens and cookware were all provided! Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon!

“Great Location and very comfortable”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2013

We went to New Orleans for the 2013 Rock n' Roll Mararthon my daughter ran in. She had recently been in N.O. for Mardi Gras and kept talking about "some purple drink" come to find out we were staying almost right across the street from the little tavern she got it out:) So that made her very happy. As far as our rental, it was great! We love staying in places that have that Ol' French Quarter "FEEL" but clean!!!! And this was BOTH:) In the same block but on the corner is CLOVER's GRILL, I thought that Kyrstals was crazy busy late night, but CLOVERS was more! Great Burgers!!! Also, you may want to try Camiella's for breakfast, within walking distance, just ask anyone local where it is. Mr. Peanut will make your visit very entertaining while eating. I loved our place we stayed at, like I mentioned, it was clean and much space. Annette, his house manager was more than a sweetheart from the moment we meant her!!!Ohhhhh, sitting on the front balcony was the perfect spot I momma enjoyed to people watch:) We found a treasure and will be back.

“706 Magazine Street”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2012

The unit was everything it said it was and much more. With two teenage girls, my husband and my mother we all had enough room to have our own space. The unit came with everything needed, you do not need to bring supplies to wash your clothes or anything. The hot tub on the roof was great for watching the sunset over the city and listening to the sounds of New Orleans at night (we were there for the Running of the Bulls). Be sure to get a good map of the city to not rely on GPS to get you around because no matter what it took us across the river to get to the aquarium that was at the end of the street about six blocks away.

“Location is everything”

Reviewed 1 Feb 2009

We stayed in the cottage unit and loved the location, right off Bourbon Street. Delightful courtyard and our friends stayed in one of the other units so we had privacy but were close together. Downside -- noise! The Blacksmith Shop bar adjoins the kitchen wall and we heard the music until 2 a.m. Great for nightowls but not good for those who want to retire earlier. Kitchen and furniture were outdated but adequate. Parking was also an issue as there is only one "resident parking pass". Two hour parking is enforced and we got towed for not moving our car on a street cleaning day -- $125. ticket and having to pick up car at the pound. Ouch! Good value for the money, however, and location can not be beat.

Owner's reply: Hi Ethel, There must be some confusion. You have submitted a review for the wrong property. This is the Kerlerec House. We are not located off of Bourbon St. or near the blacksmith shop at all. . We are one block from the French Quarter, in the 900 block of Kerlerec St. on the other side of Esplanade. Please refer to the map on this site, or other maps as to our location. Sincerely, Trinna Thompson
