About Gary

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 Uptown-Carrollton

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.

Good location 1 block off Magazine and lots of light.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great Uptown home-base

  • 5 of 5

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!

Worked great for us

  • 5 of 5

Nice location, nice apartment. A/C worked great. Very good mattress/bed. We didn't use the kitchen much, but it looked fine. We used the street cars rather than having a rental car. That worked out great. It was a few block walk from the apartment to the street car stop, but that was no problem. The surrounding neighborhoods are beautiful and we loved walking different routes back and forth.
