About Jenny

My husband and I have lived in New Orleans since 1998 and have grown to truly love it and hope that you will as well. I've been a nurse for almost 25 years and my husband is in real estate and renovation. We have 2 teenage daughters, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 hamsters and 3 chickens. Thanks for checking out our rental property!

Jenny purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jenny chose Esplanade Ridge

We just recently joined VRBO, however, we have been renting this property for a few years as a short term rental. The reviews are always outstanding with most of the guest commenting on how clean and cozy our place is, and that it really feels like a home. They also enjoyed that it was outside of the French quarter, which allowed them to come home to a much quieter and peaceful spot.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of this house is absolutely perfect for Jazz Fest at the fairgrounds and numerous other festivals that are held at City Park. The front porch is lovely and the free street parking is usually available. The house has hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings and original architecture, and was updated in 2015.

Believe the Hype!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this place. I rented it for my two friends and myself. When we got there, Jenny left us wine and snacks. The location was perfect. Everywhere was just a few minutes away. We were in town for the Essence Music Festival. It was only a $10 Uber ride to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The neighborhood is original and charming. There was a market a few mins away, a beauty supply store, some takeout, etc...all near the house. You really can't beat this location. The architecture in the area, the people, the feel, the colorful houses, all of it was just like the New Orleans you see in the movies. We're seriously considering buying real estate here! Jenny and her husband were very responsive and hospitable. We got into everything we could get into: we ate crawfish in the quarter, chased pirates down Bourbon street, went to a cookout at The First and Last Stop Bar, went swimming at the pool in the neighborhood (2 minute walk from the house), went to several concerts, made hurricanes in the kitchen, wreaked havoc on Riverwalk Mall, and had Sunday dinner with one of the Martinez's staff. At the end of all these adventures, we had a beautiful home to come back to and that made all the difference. The beautiful pictures don't do it justice! Thank you, Jenny and Tom! I cannot wait to come back!

Amazing place would definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place would definitely stay again. The location is really easily located for an Uber ride into the French quarters. We stayed here for a bachelorette party with seven girls and there was plenty of room. Owners left you a list of magazines are plenty of suggestions of things to do and she is super responsive and helpful with anything you need. Would recommend this place to anyone I know and would definitely stay here again if I come back

Great central spot

  • 5 of 5

Cute row house in the heart of it all. This house is situated in a quiet centrally located area with easy access to everything. House was well stocked with everything we needed, clean and charming. We had our 2 young children with us and there were children's books and stuffed animals in the rooms which they loved! Jenny was quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had...not that we had any! There was plenty of parking as well. Definitely recommend!

Jenny was a wonderful host. She met us at the house when we arrived and showed us recommendations for restaurants and gave us suggestions for places to go. The House was perfect and everyone in the group loved it. Great location in that it’s quiet yet conveniently close to everywhere we wanted to go. Staying at Jenny’s place definitely helped to make it a great bachelorette weekend for my friend and everyone that went!

Great stay for Christmas!

Our family arrived and we were met by Jenny. She had New Orleans travel info, snacks, and all we needed for a trouble-free stay. At the end of a long day, this was a friendly place to come home to.

We are located in a great part of New Orleans called mid city. It's made up of mostly locals, so you will get more of a neighborhood feel than you would get in the French Quarter. There are a number of great restaurants within 1 mile of the house, and City Park is just over a mile away and offers lots to see and do. We are very centrally located which will allow you to see more of the true New Orleans. I've made up a notebook that I keep in the house with all of the things to see and do as well as an overview of great restaurants and bars. I love hosting and making sure that our guests have a warm welcome and like giving recommendations that will help make your stay in NOLA a great one.
