Our cozy little cottage opens onto an oversized Southern screened porch that leads to a private courtyard. Festive nights in the French Quarter can be followed with a nightcap on the porch or early morning coffee listening to the song birds bringing in the new day.
Our 105 year old home flanks the newly renovated guest house with a private entrance to the courtyard and guest house. The screened porch and lush tropical courtyard welcomes guests to a real New Orleans experience.
The tropical courtyard and screened porch are fully available to guests. There is a gas grill, large indoor and outdoor dining tables a luxury seating area on the porch along with radio and tv for those afternoon ball games you just can't miss. The private entrance through the garden is well lit for easy access.
Because our home is adjacent to the screened porch we would interact with guests occasionally. We enjoy hosting guests and want our guests to feel welcome and comfortable. There is a significant level of privacy for us and guests.
We have small dogs and welcome a well behaved dog who interacts nicely with new dogs. Should you bring your dog we are happy to provide a crate and supervised play time with our dogs. Our dogs will not be roaming about the guest area unsupervised unless guests wish to have a lot of interaction with them. It is important for us to ensure the comfort and safety of our pets and potential guests pets; therefore, making sure the entrance gate is always closed and secure is extremely important as we are located on a busy street.
We desire mature guests who want to have a great New Orleans experience while enjoying our home environment. Keeping the gates closed and latched for the security of our home and pets is crucial as we reside in a busy street. When we have guests we typically don't let our dogs in the side yard unsupervised as we want our guests to be comfortable and we understand that not everyone loves dogs.
Music and festivals and Mardi Gras are fun times and our guests should enjoy the festivities to the fullest keeping in mind that we all live very close together in these quaint New Orleans neighborhoods and should respect our neighbors quiet time late in the evening.
Smoking in the courtyard is allowed with proper disposal of fully extinguished cigarette butts in the trash.
As previously stated dogs are allowed if they are house trained and interact with new dogs easily as we have small dogs and often have foster dogs who are awaiting their forever homes. We offer a crate and blankets for the dog to utilize while guests out and about. Additionally, we are happy to let your dog out for play time and potty breaks as you desire. We are not responsible for your dog should it become ill or injured at our home. An emergency vet clinic is about 15 minutes away.
You will be able to easily enter and exit through a side gate that leads to the courtyard allowing you to come and go as you please. It is always well lit so you can stay out till the wee hours and be sure to have a lighted path home! We hope you have all the fun!
