About Susan Gurley

We are mid westerners who fell in love with New Orleans. Of course it doesn't hurt that our daughter and family live a few blocks away. She told us we must buy this house, and we did! Everything has been replaced or restored, from the piers, to the siding, insulation and wiring, those things no one can see but that make the house very comfortable. We had a blast decorating the interior, and hope you like the artwork and our small but significant and growing library of books on the area's history.

Susan Gurley purchased this house in 2013

Why Susan Gurley chose Garden District

We wanted a comfortable home close to our family. This shotgun double is perfect for us. There is a long-term tenant next door. Our 900 square foot side is spacious enough to stretch out, yet small enough to be manageable.

Great thanksgiving in NOLA.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in New Orleans. The house is in the garden district very close to Magazine and St. Charles. Great restaurants and bars close to the house. We enjoyed the entire time. The house is very roomy, great kitchen and the New Orleans coffee was exceptional. Luge bed that we could get lost in. Would definitely come back again and again.

My time in New Orleans was wonderful! This rental property was more than wonderful! The location to public transit, restaurants and shopping and FQ; the quietness; the safe neighbourhood with friendly neighbours; the use of a washer and dryer and the keyless entry was a treat. This home was a home away from home and it was immaculate and beautiful inside and out. After touring about during the day, the king size bed was heavenly to sleep in. Although, I did not have the chance to use the backyard, this property deserves 20 stars! Susan, thank you for opening your outstanding home to me for two weeks. I will certainly recommend to family and friends and I hope to return again!

Elegant & comfy

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful shotgun New Orleans house in the up-and-coming Tchoupitoulas area, with high ceilings, a bright kitchen, a lovely garden, and really good art on the walls (not hotel-like faux art so common in rentals!). The owner was friendly and helpful and we were very honored to be hosted in her property. Anytime we're anywhere near NOLA we will look to see if it's available and come again!
