Perfect location- near Tulane

The cottage is well appointed, comfortable space, with plenty of room for two or three. The location is near Frerer Street, with lots of restaurants nearby and close to Tulane.

Clean cozy cottage in the heart of uptown NOLA

  • 5 of 5

I loved my short say at Karl and Monika's cottage. They cottage itself is cozy, updated, and well maintained. It's also in a beautiful neighborhood and great location in uptown NOLA. It's in walking distance to lots of restaurants, shops, historic St Charles Ave, and much more. As a young female traveling alone, I felt totally safe. Monika always made sure all of my needs were met. Overall, I loved the cottage and my stay in NOLA. I will definitely be back. Thanks again Monika and Karl :)

Cute, Cozy, Close

  • 4 of 5

Well made, well decorated space. Small, but more than enough for one or a couple. Full kitchen, large enough bathroom, and close to everything it needs to be! My only gripe, no wifi... however there was a fantastic coffee shop just up the street where I was able to relax and work during my week long stay.

Super Cute & Fun Location

  • 5 of 5

The owners have done a great job updating this cottage. It's super cute and comfortable. It's also a fun location near some great dining options that are off Bourbon St. We used Uber and public transit to get around the city and had no difficulties getting around from this area. Monika is extremely warm, welcoming and has some great recommendations. I would highly recommend this spot!

About Monika and Karl

We both grew up in this neighborhood. We love this house and our neighbors, and it shows. :) We LOVE all things New Orleans and especially Mardi Gras! We bought a home (with this apartment on the property) on the Mardi Gras Day parade route for this expressed purpose. The parades literally happen at the end of the driveway!

But that's not all there is to do in New Orleans. NOLA is full of festivals, culture, architecture and food, glorious FOOD! We know all the best places. :)

Monika and Karl purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Monika and Karl chose Uptown-Carrollton

This property is beautiful, private, and close to great food in a walkable neighborhood. The Creole Cottage is close to everything you want to do. It's close enough to the Quarter (10 min drive) for easy access, but without the constant barrage of partying. We are close to Audubon Park, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Freret St, St Charles Avenue streetcar... If you are looking for a real, walkable, neighborhood experience, this is the place for you.

Please see our other unit on this property, VRBO #566006, if you have a larger group and all want be close together.

What makes this cottage unique

Most uniquely, this property is on the Mardi Gras Day parade route and 5 blocks from most other parades of the season. No port-o-potties for you! No long food lines or driving to and from a parade! Just stay here and relax.
