Great experience and amazing service. Great location in the Quarter but insolated enough so you don't hear noise. Staff is professional, educational, and very friendly. We will be returning here soon and will recommend to friends!

I almost don't want to review this place because I want to keep it a secret — it's that good. An absolute dream in the middle of the French Quarter. Sean is a legend, this property is beautiful, the hospitality is unmatched, the amenities are perfect. 100% recommend.

Loved cottage 7. Clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet, private with wonderful amenities and a lovely courtyard. I wish the wall mirror was higher and instead of two chairs there was a loveseat in front of the sofa.

Such mixed feelings - pros are the place is lovely, staff was excellent and great location. We wanted a two bedroom place with a sitting room & dining table for morning coffee & place to play cards after dinner. Cottage 4 - check. I chose this place for character and beauty and didn’t want an ordinary hotel. Check. But oh the cons. Neither bedroom had bedside tables or lamps, the bed frame was really creaky and the bed was only passably comfortable. The room was poorly lit for getting dressed in the evening or reading at bedtime. The antique dresser in our room was beautiful but not particularly useful as a dresser. I get it that the dresser should be an antique for the vibe, but there are many, many antique dressers to be had that have fully functional drawers. Lots of hanging space, tough to store other items and we were there for a week. The mirror in our room was small and hung so high it was another miss, and the wall beneath had plenty of room for a full length mirror or even better another dresser. Seriously- big blank wall could easily house a side by side dresser! There was also ample room for a couple of nightstands with lamps. It would take very little money to make it so much better. The other bedroom was very small, not a big deal but again, furniture was ill suited for the space. Could be so much better & for the money (which we didn’t mind paying) it doesn’t deliver.

Secret gem in a perfect location. All I can say is "wow!", why didn't I know about this place before? We have stayed in the Quarter numerous times over the years, and prefer historic or unique properties with antique-type furniture. Our old favorites have either closed or switched to typical hotel room decor with a faint historic flair (I'm talking about you, Prince Conti Hotel!). The Audubon Cottages really fit the bill. Enter through a fairly nondescript door into another world - lush tropical semi-private courtyards off the stunning main courtyard. Each cottage is unique and is situated on a semi-private courtyard shared with one other unit. The 2 bedroom units are stunning and huge. The bathrooms are modern but classic. Good water pressure for washing thick long hair. Everything was spotlessly clean. No weird or musty smells. The very welcoming and friendly staff was responsive and always available by phone or on-site. (It is not staffed 24/7, but help is only a phone call away). We parked at the Dauphine Orleans a block up the street, an affiliated property. No breakfast service, but honestly, you're in the French Quarter! Go get some beignets at Cafe du Monde or have Eggs Benedict at one of the many nearby cafes. We walked everywhere in the French Quarter including all the way to the end of the French Market, to the river, and up to Canal St. Nothing felt too far and we never felt unsafe (but always pay attention to your surroundings anywhere in NOLA these days!). You can be on Bourbon Street in 3 minutes. Yes, there was some street noise at night, mostly from cars with their outrageously loud and bass-filled sound systems. A small trade-off for being so close to the action! Bottom line, highly recommend Audubon Cottages.

If you want an authentic French feel, romantic, and unique experience, this motel is definitely a motel to consider. If you want space and a place to truely relax after the hustle of the French Quarter then consider looking at Audubon Cottages. The accomodation is right in the heart of all the fun things to do. I couldn't recommend this awesome place enough! Best sleep I have had on a holiday and best shower too!

The place is beautiful, romantic......and haunted! Holy Cow! I got up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and I heard a male voice in the bathroom sort of grunting like "Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm." I thought it was my husband playing a joke on me, until I glanced in the bedroom and saw him sound to sleep. I dashed back to the bed and hid under the cover, because we all know covers will protect you from spirits. The next morning over coffee, I told my husband who said he heard strange noises in the middle of the night, but chalked it up to our sound machine, only the sound machine doesn't make the same sound that he heard. Upon check out, I asked the "butler," as they call them, really the front desk person, if the property is haunted and she excitedly asked, "What did you experience?!" She confirmed it is haunted and said many guests have experienced something similar, nothing creepy, just spirits making their presence known. I think you have to be sensitive to them. That said, I would stay here again. It's a lovely property with great hospitality.

Fabulous cottage for a group. Great value when compared to seperate hotel rooms and you feel like you’re a celebrity. Stayed over New Year and you walk out of the craziness into your own sanctuary. Beautiful linen, decor and cleanliness.

The location is perfect. It is inside New Orleans, close to all interesting places to visit. The cottage we had on two floors was great. It is a bit expensive for a place managed like an Air B&B. No breakfast. No way to get anything to eat or snack. Place clean, well maintained.

An oasis just steps away from the craziness of Bourbon. This is a stunning property, VERY quiet. Only 7 rooms, a beautiful pool ( the oldest in New Orleans) . Rooms were well appointed, beautiful antiques, modern bathroom, lovely courtyard. There is no lobby, concierge or room service. If you are looking for those things, look elsewhere. The property manager will meet you at the door and give you keys.
