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 House in 2013
Why Monika and Karl chose Uptown and Carrolton District
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. If you decide to stay in a bit, there is a new large flat screen TV with Amazon Fire Box, featuring: HBO, SHO, Starz, and Sling for live tv. It's close enough to the Quarter (10 min drive) for easy access, but without the constant barrage of partying. We are walking distance 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 House 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. Otherwise, it's a beautifully appointed space. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our properties. Calming, neutral colors and an extra comfortable bed will allow you to you have refuge from the outside world. It's almost like a detached hotel room.

Great for short or long
I stayed here for a full month and couldn't have been happier! This place comes sparkling clean and has all the amenities you could want or need. I could've easily been comfortable for even longer! The bed is amazingly comfortable also (and I have a very sensitive back!). Super quiet, you can sleep in (or not!) as much as you want here. Karl and Monika are amazing hosts and are quick to respond to any questions. The neighborhood is safe and there are great bars and restaurants in short walking distance that are great neighborhood places, if you're looking to avoid the bourbon street madness. Parking is abundant and everything you need is within a couple of miles. Starbucks ~5 mins, rouses grocery ~ 7 mins, fresh market ~7 mins, all the bars and restaurants you need on freret st. ~10 mins walking, ~3 mins driving. Being in a detached cottage in the back also provides privacy so you feel like you have this cozy little new orleans oasis all to yourself! Amazing find, definitely book this place!
Wonderful Anniversary Stay
Monika and Karl were wonderful hosts. The cottage was beautifully decorated, very clean and well appropriated. We had everything we needed for a peaceful and relaxing stay. The cottage was easy to find and centrally located to lots of amazing food and shopping! We will definitely be back again!
Excellent Place In an Excellent Location
Monika and Karl's cottage was more than adequate for our (two people) stay in New Orleans. The location of the property is peaceful, and the neighborhood is beautiful. Upon arrival, Karl showed us around the place and familiarized us with the area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we had everything we needed available to us for our weekend stay. I would definitely stay here again if I return to New Orleans.
We really enjoyed our stay at the uptown cottage. The location was central to many restaurants and a very easy walking distance to the streetcar. The cottage itself was cozy, comfortable, and inviting. Monika and Karl were great hosts and we hope to visit again soon.
Perfect location for exploring NOLA!
This cottage was the perfect launch point to explore NOLA. Quiet and cozy retreat in Uptown. Tasty restaurants and cafes nearby on Freret and Magazine. Short walk to the St Charles Street Car for trips to Lafayette Cemetery in the Garden District and downtown to Ogden Museum, French Quarter and Frenchman Street. Also easy access via streetcar to Audubon Park. Monika and Karl were great hosts. Hope to return soon!
Cutest little cottage in Uptown!
My boyfriend and I were in town for NYE! This cottage was in such a great location. It was in a pretty quiet area in Uptown, not too far from the street car to get downtown (Ubers were not that expensive to DT and home, either). Monika was a great host that was available if needed and also provided some great suggestions for restaurants/sights to see! Hoping to visit again soon!
