About the Owner

Our names are Hisham Nasr & Ana Margarita Saenz. We have been married for 16 years and love living in New Orleans. Professionally we are both dental specialists in Periodontics , implants and Oral Surgery. We were blessed with twins in 2010 and decided to move to a bigger house only 8 blocks away to accommodate our new life. But, could not part with our beautiful home on Laurel Street. We had many offers to buy our house, but opted to keep it and share it with vacationers to enjoy the best of New Orleans.

We chose this rental because it was located just 4 blocks from our son and his family, but the location is perfect for anyone who wants to experience a great Nola house in a charming neighborhood. You're within walking distance of superb restaurants, shopping, and all that Audubon Park has to offer. The house was roomy (the most giant Master BR closet I've ever seen!), clean and uncluttered, and the fenced-in backyard was a real bonus. We will always try to stay here in the future, but book early, as it is very popular!

Surprise Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful house!!! Perfect location just two blocks from Magazine street and shopping. The house had such a great vibe and wonderful decor, we loved it. I surprised my wife with a trip for her 50th and our two best couple friends joined in the surprise. All were extremely comfortable and each BR has its own bathroom. The backyard was very picturesque and was a nice treat for a glass of wine in the evening. I will stay no where else in NOLAN!!!

Look no Further!

I surprised my husband for his 40th birthday with a trip to New Orleans! It was our first time in NOLA. I searched several homes on VRBO but when I found this home I knew it was the one. Ana was very accommodating during the entire process. When we arrived the home was immaculate and simply gorgeous!
Plenty of room for large families. The fenced in yard was perfect for breakfast el freso on the patio. The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing with Just a short cab ride to the French quarters where all the action is. I will definitely be back! Look no further This is The House to say when visiting NOLA.

The Perfect NOLA Home Rental

  • 5 of 5
This home was exactly as described in the listing, well maintained with great furnishings, and in a perfect location. The pictures don't fully convey what a lovely home this is. We were looking for a home to accommodate 3 couples coming to NOLA for a wedding and a reunion. This was the perfect home with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, a large dining area, a living area for relaxing and a lovely outdoor area in back. The property served us well as 'home base' during our five day visit. It well located in a quiet neighborhood Uptown with a Whole Foods, restaurants and shops all within an easy 2 -3 block walk. The owner stayed in contact before we arrived providing tips for transportation, sightseeing, and recommended restaurants (we highly recommend TOAST for breakfast). They were also in touch after we arrived to make sure everything was OK. Our entire experience from check in to check out was great. Would recommend to friends and we hope to return!

It was a pleasure to have you all and I look forward to hosting you again on your next trip to New Orleans.
All the best always, Ana

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5
This home is a beautiful retreat in a quiet neighborhood after long days of sightseeing. The beds are super comfortable, the living room is spacious, and the house was immaculate. It has 3 full bathrooms, which is not easy to find. We had 3 couples in our group, the perfect number for this house, although there is a cot for an extra person. Walking distance to Whole Foods and several restaurants. We especially enjoyed Toast. The streetcar is a bit of a hike on a hot day but definitely doable. The owners are attentive and although we did not need anything it is nice to know that they are close by. We would stay here again.

Feeling at home in the Big Easy!

  • 5 of 5
We came to New Orleans for my wedding, also serving as a family reunion. We felt right at home from the moment we stepped in. Ana Margarita was an excellent host, and provided recommendations, her hospitality and helpfulness were amazing.

The house is beautiful and the pictures do not judge all the details it has. Really high ceilings, curated art, and just the right furniture in every spot. The backyard/garden was very peaceful. The neighborhood and neighbors were super nice. And how about the location, steps away from interesting Magazine St, Audobon Park for a walk or run, and the convenience of groceries stores such as WholeFoods and Winn-Dixie within walking distance. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and hope next time we are in town, the house is available!

From the Owner

The neighborhood is one of the best kept secrets in the city. It's quite simply all you could ask for to live like a local while being at convenient distances to everything New Orleans has to offer. Everyone who walks into this property is in awe by its beauty, excellent condition, quality of furnishings, modern amenities and feel good sensation. Why stock the pantry when all the healthy choices are at Whole Foods Organic Market two blocks away? Feel like a cappucino and people watching? Take your pick from 5 coffee shops within 1-3 minutes walking distance. A fresh pastry for breakfast? Laurel bakery is half a block away. A drink before dinner? Enjoy the local scene at 'Dos Jefes' or St. Joe's 2-3 blocks away. A food connoisseur? Go to where the locals in the know-how come to this neighborhood to dine: Martinique, Crepe Nanou, Patois, Flaming Torch and Lillette all within 2-5 minutes. Feel like jogging? Head to St Charles Avenue and Audubon Park just a few blocks away. Golfer? The Audubon Golf Club is just down the road off Magazine Street. A day at the zoo with the kids? The Audubon zoo is 4 minutes away. Like biking? Ride 5 minutes to the cycling path on top of the levee by the park and take it all the way to the airport and back. Love horses? Rent them at Audubon Park. Everyone who stayed here plans to come back, come and ENJOY!

The house itself is radiant and the location is as good as it gets. Within walking distance you will find coffee shops, yoga studios, boutiques, children stores, fabulous restaurants, spas, and more. And 8 blocks away is the Audubon Park and Zoo. The park is breathtaking for its oaks and spanish moss, has a 18 hole public golf course, and is perfect for walking, running, bike riding, or horse back riding.
