This vacation rental has 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 upstairs and a fantastic master suite downstairs. There are two full bathrooms as well as a cozy powder room beneath the stairs. This part of the home has approximately 2100 square feet, fully appointed kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and a large capacity washer and dryer. The star of this home though is the 1800 square foot tropical oasis in the city that is the back yard with its sparkling heated salt water pool (pool can be heated up to 100 degrees in the winter time upon request for a small additional cost) and spa, tiki bar, state of the art outdoor entertainment system with several all weather televisions that can be viewed from any angle of the pool or yard. There is a BBQ with a dedicated gas line available to use as well. This backyard is completely private to the vacation rental guest! The owner's bedroom efficiency is private and separated from the vacation home rental.
You will have complete and total access to the home and backyard with the exception of a few locked closets. Pool pump and heater will also be locked, but someone will be available to heat the pool prior to your arrival for an additional cost. The front door and alarm will have a punch code access unique to your group and changed for every guest, so no keys are required! Kitchen is fully stocked with cookware and utensils (I love to cook myself, so it's got all the gadgets you need).
I will be available to answer any questions that you have or in case you need anything. I can be reached pretty quickly via text or a phone call, (504-782-4279).
The Uptown and Magazine Street areas are some of the most popular and historic neighborhoods in the city. It's close proximity (1 block away), from the Garden District, the wealthiest part of the city and home to celebrities such as Beyonce, Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, and Archie Manning, make it a fantastic jumping off point to explore the city. Less than a block away is bustling Magazine street where you can find some of the best and most famous restaurants, bars, and shops in the city. There is a supermarket and drug store 1 block away, as well as famous bars and restaurants such as The Bulldog, Balcony Bar, Rum House, Ignatius, Dat Dog, Slim Goodie's, Mahoney's Po-Boys, and Commander's Palace all within easy walking distance. Visit the Magazine Street website for more details on this neighborhood. Search the Web for Magazine Street for details. (URL HIDDEN)
Navigating this city from here is very easy and convenient with or without a car. There are a ton of things to do and see within easy walking distance of the house including Magazine Street, The Garden District, and The historic Lafayette Cemetery No 1. The Magazine street bus line which goes from the French Quarter all the way up past Audubon Park and the Zoo is just a block away. About 5 blocks away is the historic and iconic St Charles Street Car line. If you prefer, Uber is usually less than a $10 ride to the French Quarter, and cabs can be gotten fairly easily on Magazine street as well. There is usually plenty of street parking near the house if you prefer to drive.
Other things to note
There is plenty of street parking usually, except for a few special events that are held from time to time in the area. I've never had to park more than a block away and can almost always find a spot right on my street. This is a popular residential as well as shopping and going out area that is one of the safest in the city, but like all big metropolitan areas, use some common sense. Keep your vehicle locked and valuables out of site, lock the door when you leave, etc.

Hello and welcome to my vacation rental. I recently retired after 30 years in education and I am ready to explore the world. I am also excited to share my home with others that want to explore our unique city of New Orleans. I am a native of Louisiana. I was borne and raised on Bayou Lafourche which is about 45 miles southwest of New Orleans. I am a true Cajun. :-)
Why Owner/Manager chose East Riverside
My home was design as a place for comfort and fun. I've had my share of socials and parties here. I am excited that I can share my home through respectable sites like Home Away, VRBO and AirBnB with others as I venture out to explore many areas of our world. I will be using these same sites to find temporary places to live in lots of areas around our planet.
What makes this House unique
Once in my home, I think you will fell it welcoming and fun vibe.

Thanks Marc! Glad you all enjoyed the house and our city. Come back anytime. :-) Gary
A little slice of paradise!
New Orleans was packed with activity and people. I enjoyed seeing the sites but by the end of the day, I was tired of traffic and crowds. This home was the perfect spot! From the moment we stepped inside, it was so relaxing and quiet - our own little slice of paradise! The house is beautiful and it was very well equipped to maximize our comfort. I cannot explain how quiet and secluded you feel once you step inside the house. We spent alot of time sitting by the pool and the quietness amazed me! The pool is surrounded by plants and palm trees so you cannot really see the neighboring homes. It does feel like your own tropical oasis!
Magazine street is only one block away and there are shops, boutiques, Walgreens, bars and restaurants all within walking distance. We had some amazing food and purchased some shrimp packed in dry ice to take home with us. I probably would not have stopped to buy ice cream from a vendor but there were alot of people in line so I had to see what was going on. Watching the vendor make the ice cream was quite entertaining and the ice cream was delicious! If you are near Dats Dogs, check it out. I feel like a kid writing a review about ice cream with all of the wonderful restaurants in New Orleans but it was that good!
Gary was wonderful - he quickly responded to questions. It was a wonderful home and if I am ever in New Orleans again, I will definitely stay here! Five Stars!!!
Great Home Base
This rental was a great home base for our employees to stay at while working on a project in NOLA. Gary was really helpful and accommodating and the house was just beautiful- a perfect place to come back and relax in the evening.
Thanks. You all are welcome back anytime. Take care, Gary

Great location. Excellent hospitality. Beautiful Home.
Gary was wonderful to work with. The house is beautiful and in an excellent location to walk to restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. The most loved part of the home is the gorgeous backyard with pools, outdoor tv's, and plenty of space to relax and entertain. Gary has the house stocked with everything you need for a relaxing vacation or nice get together with friends. Will definitely recommend to others and hope to stay again soon. Great value.
