Why KEVIN chose Gentilly

After hurricane Katrina this was the only house the family had to come back to that was renovated. We lived within blocks of each other. My mother actually live in the house next door before katrina. Now that my brothers and sister and father and family sold their properties and moved to other cities it is the only house left where they can come and relax when they come in town so, its serves as a base camp for family.

What makes this house unique

This house is in a neighborhood that has roaming security and belongs to Bancroft Park Civic Association and is surrounded by home owners

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us. We were far enough away but yet close to everything. It rained 80%of the time were there but it was comforting knowing we had a GREAT place to come "home" to. Kevin, the owner, made sure we knew that he was available if we needed anything but honestly we didnt need anything! HIGHLY recommend!!!

Comfortable, spacious, and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I spend a wonderful week at the Creole Ranch. It's nicely decorated, very comfortable, plenty of space for 6 people to relax and enjoy. It truly felt like a home away from home. The neighborhood is very safe, and a quick Uber/Lyft ride to the French Quarter or Fairgrounds. Also easy bike riding to the Fairgrounds, or up to see beautiful Lake Pontchartrain which is only 1.5 miles north, and to City Park, which is a lovely place to spend time. We also loved the back patio, where we would often relax after a long day of being a tourist. And best of all was the owner, Kevin, who was so personable, responsive, and helpful. He really makes it a priority to be sure you have everything you need. We will definitely be back!!

The photos do this home no justice! It is super nice, and roomie. Me and my friends were blown away by the beauty of this house. Kevin was great as well very informative. Close to everything but enough distance that you can still realize peacefully without all the commotion!

The Disappointment Ranch

  • 2 of 5

I agree that Kevin seems like a swell guy, but he should definitely hire a cleaning company and/or property manager. The pictures online are misleading. Kevin cleans the house himself and maybe it was bc he was kind enough to give us an early check in time, but between all the dead bugs lining the windows to the dead plants in almost every room to the sinks that smell and don't drain, the house had an overall dirtiness that continued to surprise us through the weekend. Don't expect any natural light bc even though the house has plenty of windows, the majority of them are covered with some sort of paper blinds that do not roll fold or open. While the kitchen is aesthetically pleasing, every drawer in there was a junk drawer full of things a renter would never need like extra door knobs and appliance papers and loose screws, but lacking simple things like a wine opener. We never cooked. We also shared one roll of toilet paper beteeen two bathrooms and six people. Most rental properties have at least one starter roll in each bathroom. There were no paper towels. There was no handsoap in any bathroom or hand towels. The description of the home claims there is a tv in every bedroom...there is NOT. While there are two very old televisions in two of the bedrooms, six thirty-something tech savvy adults could not manage to turn one on or find a channel on the other. The tv in the living room only has cable. The wifi signal is weak...does not reach to the master bedroom and was not strong enough to stream netflix in the den. We asked Kevin about the basic household supplies we were not left with and he said he would bring them by that day but we were never provided anything. He did text later to tell us there was one extra roll of toilet paper in the master bedroom dresser drawer....?

I would not recommend this place...obviously. I do have high expectations but have never been disappointed in a house I've rented on Airbnb or Homeaway. I'm confused by all the five star reviews of this home.

Owner's Response: The multiple five star reviews speak for itself about this beautiful house. All the past guest could not possibly be telling a lie. I've been in the vacation rental business for almost three years and pride myself on providing five star accommodations. Ive learned you cant please everybody no matter how hard you try. Even though I generously rated this quest with five stars some people will be spiteful and evil just because your different. Keith appeared to be a great guest at first but as soon as he saw that I was a black business owner he became vindictive and dishonest while staying. There are a lot of colors in the world Keith. Please grow up soon. Please don't trust this guest with your properties. If he will do this to me with a true five star listing he will do it to anyone.
