About Owner/Property Manager

I own several vacation home properties here in NOLA, & Austin, TX, and have managed this business for 12 years. I love to take care of people as they partake in the most important thing in life-- vacation!! This includes you business people too! My phone # shows out of state, but I live in NOLA!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Central City/Garden District

LOTS of reasons-- beautiful building and courtyard with that old New Orleans feel, excellent location and neighborhood, gated parking, home has huge master suites, adjoining large baths-- gorgeous. I also have several other homes close to the FQ. I want to give my customers choices for the area they want!

What makes this house unique

You are right ON Magazine street-has lots of restaurants/coffee shops/antique shops, and 5 minute drive to the French Quarter or Downtown.

This was the ideal location for our group for a girls' weekend.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and spacious in a lovely part of the Garden District. Perfect for a girls' weekend with plenty of bathrooms and nice patio. Also, a very short Uber ride to the French Quarter.

In town for a convention

  • 5 of 5

This house was a quick 5 minute drive to the convention center. Shops and food within walking distance. The back courtyard was great to relax in. And I loved Mr. Adventure and Bowie. They were sweethearts. The property manager, Joe, was very helpful and fast to respond to my questions.

Amazing place to stay for big group!!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best decision I made in New Orleans! Having a group of 10 girls, it couldn't have been any better! Each room was like it's own suite w it's own crazy huge bathroom. It was such a neat house w an amazing backyard and very close to everything!! The owner and management company were truly easy to work w and super accommodating and flexible. Very good communication too! Loooved this place will definitely stay again if I have a big group in NOLA!!

A great house at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

It was my second time staying at this fantastic home, and it will remain my top choice for future trips to New Orleans. The house is perfect for large groups, it's very clean, and it has all the amenities you need for a stress free vacation. Check in and check out is easy. This historic house has great character and is just a short Uber ride to the French Quarter. I would highly recommend it to any looking to stay in the Garden District or that wants to be centrally located to the popular areas outside of the Quarter.

Great House in a Great Area

  • 4 of 5

House was very big for our needs, we had 8 people and everyone had a space to sleep. Would have given 5 stars but most of the beds were a bit uncomfortable. 4 real beds, the rest are either fold outs or murphy beds. Place was clean and New Orleans Quirky! Turtle pond out back, neighborhood friendly cats and really great outside area to hang out in the mornings. Possible ghost, we didn't see or hear anything but was fun to think about. There is an AWESOME coffee shop on the corner (Momo's) which was really convenient for us. Lots a bathrooms and space.

Good with reservations

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location, and the house works well for a group. Multiple bathrooms, and separate spaces allow good relations while the common rooms are quite usable. That being said, if you want to cook for your group, the kitchen leaves a lot to be desired. No usable knives, no can opener, no bottle opener, no corkscrew, no tongs. The stove is an antique and works poorly, one burner never worked. The patio grill needed to be propped up on bricks and we had to get propane. The fridge is seriously off level.

Many light bulbs were burned out. Joe helped with that, but forethought would have been better. Some beds were ok, some were very uncomfortable.

The decking on the upper gallery was soft in places, which was a concern as it's a long fall from there.

The patio is great, we used it a lot.

Two other things I fixed to get through the week were one of the toilets, and the dishwasher.

In short, we loved the spot and the accommodation for a family, but the owner attention to detail was terrible.
