About Rita Rans

I've lived in New Orleans for 15 years and love my new hometown! I moved here from Indiana where I ran a vintage clothing store, used record shop and then worked in a battered women's shelter.

Rita Rans purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Rita Rans chose Faubourg Marigny

I chose to live in this area because of the wonderful mix of neighbors and the closeness to the Quarter where I can walk to Mardi Gras or walk through the centuries old village on a quiet, misty morning. Many wonderful and talented artists, musicians, and other eclectic people live in the neighborhood making it an always inspirational place to visit or live.

What makes this apartment unique

There are many wonderful and relaxing ways to enjoy the guesthouse and yet be a quick walk to great bars and restaurants. During Mardi Gras, you can step out on the front porch to watch the pop up parades.

Wonderful stay in the perfect spot to explore NOLA!!

  • 5 of 5

Rita's little studio apartment was ideal for the two of us to get away and explore the city. It's close to both Frenchman St. and the Bywater but was also an easy walk to the Quarter. The bed, the shower, and the coffee were all nice touches. We appreciated being tucked in a neighborhood instead of staying on a crowded street. Neighbors were friendly and respectful. We would absolutely stay at Rita's place again next time we visit New Orleans. Thank you for everything!!

Cozy and quiet getaway perfect for couples

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring New Orleans, eating amazing food and listening to energizing and soulful music. At the end of the day we felt so lucky to come back to this cozy home in a very nice neighborhood. We loved the nearby restaurants and felt very safe. The bed was simply divine, the decorations tasteful and the host thought of all our needs. Highly recommended!

Perfect - cozy and close to all you want!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here multiple times for a few reasons. Some reasons were for peace and solitude others to celebrate and have a great time in true New Orleans fashion. Either way - Rita’s Place was perfect for my home away from home and allowed me to do whatever I was in the mood for. Venture to cute artist cafes in the neighborhood or dark, dive bars - there are plenty around. Its an easy and safe walk to the Frenchman to watch live music or dine at some amazing places like threee muses. I always enjoy staying here and hope to come again soon!

Rita is amazing

  • 5 of 5

So i had reservations for what turned out to be the coldest weekend in recent New Orleans history. I drove from Austin, normally a 7 hour trip - took 21 hours. She texted me as we were on the road to let me know that because it was so abnormally cold, her house wasn't heating up very well and offered to refund me if we would rather stay in a hotel. The gesture was so nice and you can really tell that Rita cares about the comfort of her guests. Next time I'm in New Orleans, I will most definitely be staying at Rita's place. She's great.

Charming apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Rita's apartment was in the perfect location to explore the city from. It is beautifully decorated and incredibly cozy. We had the misfortune of staying over one of the coldest weeks of the year with temperatures dropping below freezing but Rita was in contact throughout the stay to ensure we had everything we needed to stay comfortable. Rita went above and beyond at 3 in the morning to ensure we had power restored after a rolling brownout hit the city due to the extreme cold. The apartment was in a great neighborhood to explore both Bywater and Marginy and perfect for evenings in the French Quarter and beyond.

What a great place to stay! Cute, cozy, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Loved having our own place. Relatively quiet and away from the chaos. Interesting neighborhood with food, drink, and entertainment. Right there. Even had a parade come down the street one evening! Walking distance and inexpensive Uber to the French Quarter. Great access to self drive anywhere else.
