Gary is a Native New Orleanian who has lived in San Francisco and travelled the world, only to return home to NOLA! Having returned to marry the girl next door just a few months before Katrina, he has played his part in rebuilding this wonderful city through various real estate projects and other entrepreneurial ventures. And now he's never leaving!
Gary purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Gary chose West Riverside
This building was falling down after 'The Storm,' as we call it. When the chance came up to buy it from an out of town investor who was unable to recover from storm damages, we jumped at it. The moment the neighbors saw that we were fining the place up and getting good people living there, they were really happy to see the neighborhood improving, one property at a time. We are proud owners and Proud New Orleanians!
What makes this Apartment unique
We decided to make your visit as comfy and soothing with the help of some of our vast collection of Indian and Asian art. Amassed from various world travels, the art is collectively known as Meditation Art. We sell much of the art and decorative items through If you stay here and love something that is on the walls or shelves and want to take it home with you, we offer a Friends & Family special discount.

Delightful Uptown flat
We loved staying at Gary's flat. It was extremely clean, quiet and well appointed. Gary is a delightful host and very responsive. Best of all, by staying on Constance street you can walk to Magazine Street, Whole Foods, the best darn po-boy place in the city and the sublime espresso bar Cherry. Not to mention, gorgeous architecture on every block! We'll definitely book again on our next family visit to NOLA.
Great getaway in NOLA
We had the good fortune to stay at the ZEN apartment during our stay in NOLA. We were within walking distance of the Audubon Park and Zoo! Magazine Street was one block over with tons of shops! My wife attended the yoga class (also within walking distance!). The location is great!
The apartment was well kept and we felt that we were safe in that neighborhood. We enjoyed the spacious layout and the wifi and cable tv!
Don't think twice about grabbing this one if you get the chance!
Good location 1 block off Magazine and lots of light.
Zen 1 unit is nice place, good location with all the comforts you need. I liked the upstairs porch with 2 Adirondack chairs to read on and look up and down the street with morning coffee or an afternoon brew. Gary is a nice owner and very attentive. Only setback might be that the amenities are a bit tired (kitchen and bathroom), but everything works fine, including A/C.
Centrally located and very walkable to all Magazine and Uptown has to offer!
Light filled, large and fully equipped to handle a long term stay or quick stopover. Gary is VERY responsive to all inquiries and lives locally. You can tell he takes pride in his business and your comfort. I’d definitrly stay again!
The location was perfect, right by magazine street, walking distance to grocery stores and coffee shops. Inside was clean, with all amenities that we needed and more. Gary was also great, and was prompt to reply if we needed something. I hope to stay here again in the future!
We're happy you enjoyed our Zen Retreat.
Please come back again soon and refer your friends.
Great Uptown home-base
Comfortable beds, plenty of room, peaceful retreat. Provided a great home base for prepping my kids for move-in at nearby Tulane, and Gary was so helpful & hospitable. Full-sized kitchen useful if you're not going to eat out all the time (but it's New Orleans! Plenty of room for leftovers in the fridge!) We'll be back when visiting the kids or moving them in/out!
Thanks for the kind words, Robyn!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and will be our regular guests for Tulane visits.
If we can be a resource for your kids, we're happy to help.
Please keep us posted on your plans and refer your friends!
