About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 2-3)

This one hundred year old shotgun cottage is a classic New Orleans cottage with modern updates. Hardwood floors and high ceilings hold ceiling fans and original windows provide lots of natural light.

Entering the great room, a flat screen TV with basic cable, high speed wifi and a sonos sound system. The living area has a Queen sized sofa sleeper leads to the open full kitchen with an Oak dining table. Lovely light and 11 foot ceilings and ceiling fans are in all rooms.

The great room leads to the bedroom with an elegant Art Deco bedroom set and a new top of the line memory foam Queen mattress set, with deliciously soft high thread count new bedding and duvet cover. The bedroom leads to the updated bathroom with claw foot tub for soaking your dancing feet and dreaming.

There is an open closet across from bedroom with soft high thread count towels. The back door opens to the screened porch, my favorite room in the house, perfect for taking your cocktail under the swirling ceiling fan. The brick patio could be your next crawfish boil site with a comfy table and chairs for those beautiful languid afternoons. The studio in the back has a full sized washer/dryer. Celebrate Uptown New Orleans with fabulous food within walking distance in all directions, including the best poboys in town. St. Charles Avenue, Audubon Park and the Mississippi River all within 10 blocks of the cottage.

This is a sauntering neighborhood, the kind where everyone talks to each other while they walk their dogs or discuss the fate of the Times Picayune over a scone at Laurel Street Bakery or meet a local author at a reading at Octavia Street Books.

The Octavia Cottage is 9 blocks from Audubon Park with it's live Oak and bike path for running or rollerblading. You can see the giraffes' necks above the fence from the park itself, loll under an ancient Oak and remember how it feels to have nothing but time and the promise of an Oyster poboy at Domilese's or the Soul Rebels at Le Bon Temps.

It is close to Tulane and Loyola, two blocks from Magazine Street which stretches miles to the Quarter with shops from uptown to downtown, haute couture to funky vintage. Hop the Magazine bus to the Quarter.

This is also an eating neighborhood with Patois, Clancy's, Upperline, all within walking distance from the Octavia cottage.

The cottage is a half a block from coffee shops, one and a half blocks to Whole Foods, boutiques, and yoga studios. Ten blocks from St. Charles Avenue and the historic streetcar. It's only a short ride to the French Quarter by streetcar.

Slow down and behave like a New Orleanian, which is to say, 'Do what ya wanna.' Bike down the bike path along the levee on the Mississippi, which stretches for miles and miles, or eat a poboy and take a nap at 'The Fly,' the river park only 9 blocks from the cottage, and watch the tug boats show you the river's true size.

Of course if live music is the reason you've come, it will be all around you. Le Bon Temps is close by for the Soul Rebels on Thursday night, or Tipitina's on Napoleon Avenue. The hardest thing about being here is not ever having enough time to do all of the things you'll want to do.

The neighborhood is safe to walk or bike and will make you want to move to New Orleans or hurry back to what you may decide is your home. Hurrying is something you'll have forgotten how to do by the time you leave.
