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 (occupational no. 177058) 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.

Why Rachele Basler chose Uptown
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'.
What makes this House unique
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.

Great place for a get together
My wife and I rented out this large well equipped home while at a convention in NOLA. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and the close proximity of the home to much of what the city has to offer. One night we had a group from the convention over for a swimming party which was a blast. We are coming back next time we travel to NOLA.
Thank you John! We will be glad to host ya'll again as soon as you can return to NOLA!
Great place for a large group especially multigenerational families. AC a little erratic, but thanks to Leo's expertise, no problem! Pool area is excellent as a focal point for family interaction. Everyone having their own room with a bathroom ensures privacy when desired . Overall a great experience.
It was a great home for family or friends to get away together
Dustin (owner) and Leo (caretaker) were great! We had an amazing weekend. Leo was quick to respond when we needed something. The rooms were comfortable. Great location; close to restaurants and public transit, but also in a quiet neighborhood.
Thanks for making our family wedding weekend a great success.
NJ Ladies (Theresa)
We loved the house. We are a group of 12 middle age ladies. We go on vacation together once a year. The gathering area around the indoor pool and bar was perfect for all of us. We spend most of our time there. Each bedroom was unique and everyone was satisfied with there accommodations. The owner Dustin was absolutely wonderful with helping me answer any question I asked him. He even had someone do the food shopping for us the day we arrived. The caretaker Leo was awesome he was kind, sweet and so helpful with all our needs.
We also hired a private chef (Delishnola Cataering LLC) the dinning area seat all 12 of us very comfortably. I would recommend this to anyone who staying in this house.
GREAT HOUSE TO RENT FOR ANY OCCASION.
What a perfect place to stay!
We LOVED this house! My daughter had a destination wedding in New Orleans (we are from SC). Both sets of parents and closest friends/family stayed here - 18 in all. The best part was the fact that the gathering area (around the bar and indoor pool) was perfect for friends to drop by and speak, have a drink, and enjoy each other's company. Dustin (the owner) was absolutely wonderful to work with, and accommodated our every need. Leo, the caretaker, and historian, was so helpful. He gave a great tour and checked on us prior to leaving to see if we had any questions. This house is perfect for couples, large families, or reunions. I highly recommend it and hope to one day go back! Only a couple of blocks from the St. Charles streetcar line, so very easy to get around. Each room in the house was unique and everyone enjoyed it.
Some of these services are on demand and extra, of course.
