About the Property

9 Bedrooms, 9 Bathrooms, Uptown New Orleans' Blue Lagoon, Full Rental

*Please message the owner before booking.

Visit bluelagoonnola for more info.
This wonderfully unique property is ideal for parties wishing to stay together while experiencing New Orleans. Groups have included graduations, small weddings, family reunions, business and yoga retreats. This is a full house rental. The property has a large indoor pool, piano, large horseshoe bar, two kitchens, huge living and dining area, recreation room with ping-pong, DVD, Direct TV, and nine private bedrooms (10 beds), each with its own full bath (Exception: two adjoining rooms on the second floor share a bathroom). Two bedrooms have futons in the rooms. Perfect for older kids. We have one pack-n-play. A bathroom, laundry, and shower is in the pool room.
New Orleans-styled decor throughout. Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. The home is across the street from Pascal's Manale and Charlie's Steakhouse. French Truck Coffee, Il Posto - a french cafe, and Polite Society - a spa and salon are two blocks down on Dryades. Walk three blocks to the St. Charles Streetcar and head to the French Quarter, or hang out on nearby Magazine Street and Freret Street. This is a true, unique New Orleans experience.

WEEKLY RENTAL RATES: contact to see if your dates qualify for discounted weekly rate of $10,995.00 (good only when entering and departing on a Tues. Wed or Thurs., if not during Festival period). Contact us for festival rates also. Unfortunately we no longer accept bachelor parties.

The home's history:
4417 Dryades, like much of New Orleans, has an ambience all its own, with architectural features of different historical periods.
In the early 1900s, the Mexican Counsel to the United States purchased the property. A ceramic-tile pool with a unique domed ceiling were added in 1927. In 1972, the building was sold to become one of the first in a series of indoor scuba diving schools. Prior to our recent renovations, the property was a clothing-optional Bed & Breakfast.

Contact owner for festival rates. Festival rates are higher than the listed rates.

We are licensed with the city and have recently passed inspections by the city and state fire marshals. Certified fire extinguishers are mounted throughout the house and a fire alarm system was recently installed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Uptown, New Orleans, LA, USA:
It is such a unique place with old New Orleans warmth, an indoor pool, and nine nice, comfortable individual rooms. The back patio is cozy and the backyard and large deck are comfortably spacious. The pool is 40' by 16'.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Three blocks from the St. Charles street car. Ten blocks from Magazine street where shopping and restaurants are abundant. La Boulangerie, a french bakery, is nearby and was voted best bakery in New Orleans. The property is across from Pascale's Manale and Charlie's Steak House. IL Posto Cafe, a great coffee house restaurant, is three blocks away on Dryades serving great sandwiches, salads, and wine.
