Interaction with guests

You will have complete privacy here. Every question you ask or concern you may have before or during your stay will be promptly addressed via messenger or phone.

The neighborhood

Marilyn’s home is located in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.

Located on safe, tree-lined Esplanade Avenue in the lower Treme, we are in the middle of one of the most joyful, lively, and vibrant neighborhoods of New Orleans, home to an incredible underground live jazz scene and regular second line parades (which are fun to watch from the private 2nd floor balcony!). Our home is just a short walk to the French Quarter and the Marigny/Frenchmen Street. We are also a few blocks away from the North Rampart streetcar line.

Getting around

The best way to get around is by foot, bike, taxi, or Uber/Lyft. For cycling enthusiasts, New Orleans is an eminently bikeable city, and there are several rental and tour companies in close proximity (we especially recommend Bicycle Michael’s on Frenchmen Street). The Quarter and Marigny are both within walking distance, and other hotspots such as the Bywater neighborhood and Magazine Street are a short cab ride away. We are a 25 minute drive from the airport.

Other things to note

If you have questions you need answered before securing your booking, or you simply want to talk with us first, please send our team an inquiry instead of a reservation request.

If this property is close but not quite the one, please reach out to us at Stayloom directly. We own and manage high end rental homes in the area and we’d be happy to find you and your group the perfect fit!

We were visiting NOLA with our family for a wedding and could not have picked a better place to stay. We loved the furnishings and the historic luxury of the home. Perfect for photos! The outdoor space was a lovely bonus too. Thank you Frank!!

House is gorgeous and you can't pick a better area to stay: in the thick of all of the festivities (jazz, art, and incredible food). We were blown away and hope to stay next year!
