About the property


Come Celebrate New Orleans Bday!

This Historical Home was built in the early 1900's. Totally renovated, with all the charm of New Orleans. Our New Orleans Creole cottage home is very spacious with new furniture and all the making of a comfortable home.

The Historical Bywater neighborhood is an artsy area with easy access to the French Quarter, Frenchman St, Crescent Park, cafes, restaurants, grocery, park, and bars all within walking distance.

Welcome, and enjoy our Historic Bywater neighborhood.

We are close enough to the French Quarter to walk

( 15 -20-minute walk), but still far enough to not have the noise, expensive parking and activity of the French Quarter.

The Gabrielle Grace Manor has a Living room with hardwood floors, TV, sofa bed and 2 chairs, WiFi, cable TV. The kitchen is fully furnished, (but who wants to cook when you're in New Orleans and you have all this good food).

1st. bedroom has a new queen bed and mattress and hardwood floors and TV.

2nd. bedroom has a new queen bed and mattress and hardwood floors.

2 Bathrooms consist of a toilet and combination tub/shower. Just remodeled in the last year.

Great Location.... New Orleans ranked 2nd best U.S. city by Travel + Leisure in 2015

Travel + Leisure attributes New Orleans' rise in the rankings to a growing number of new hotels, shops and restaurants across the city as well as the thriving Faubourg Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods.

Our home is a vacation rental for a nice place to stay while you are in our home. We do not allow any parties, receptions, functions, and anything in that order. Sorry, but we are in a Historical Neighborhood, and we must respect our neighbors.

About Tony and Cathy

We own and manage The Gabrielle Grace Manor and three other rentals. We are on the outskirts of New Orleans known as St. Bernard Parish, only minutes away from the French Quarter. Our families were fishermen and farmers. We grew up on the bayou where we learned to live off the land. We also had a Seafood Business where we sold and shipped shrimp, crabs, oysters, and fish, mostly to New Orleans and Baltimore. Our families and us all share the love for our beautiful city "New Orleans".

Tony and Cathy purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Tony and Cathy chose Bywater

We love the Bywater area it's a great laid back artsy neighborhood. One stay here and you will be in love too. Our house is over 100 yrs old. Once inside you will see the beauty. So book now and come on in!

What makes this cottage unique

We choose our property in the Bywater for its beauty, style and also in a short walking, bicycling and driving distance to the French Quarter. We have a lovely tropical courtyard with a

BarBQ Pit and table chairs that you will love to drink your morning coffee or your afternoon cocktail. To stay in our residents you will truly experience staying in an authentic New Orleans home.

Cozy house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Cathy and Tony provided easy access and excellent communication. Space is just as described. Also the pull out couch was a big help as my mom's flight was cancelled and she had to stay an extra night.

Great Weekend Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Gabrielle Grace Manor. Tony and Cathy were excellent, attentive hosts. The house had everything we needed and then some. Aside from some construction during the day, the neighborhood was generally quiet and we felt very safe. I’m was a perfect distance from the bustling, tourist areas of the city.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Gabriella Grace Manor. It's so nice to come home from a day of touring to relax in the courtyard with a beverage & snacks. The house had everything we needed. Cathy & Tony are a very friendly couple. They are quick to respond with any questions you might have. They gave us some great suggestions for restaurants in the area. The house is only about a 5 minute drive to the French Quarter. We would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a New Orleans experience.

Awesome place in Bywater!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is set up great for two couples or a family. Everything we needed was provided. There are lots or bars, restaurants and sundry places nearby, and its a quick stroll down to the riverwalk. Bywater is an up and coming area, and its close to Frenchmen's and the fairgrounds for Jazz Fest. If you are planning a trip to New Orleans, scoop this place up quick and stay clear of the madness down on Bourbon Street. Loved it, and will definitely try to stay here the next time we are in town.

Wow, did we hit the jackpot when we found this gem. The house was comfortable, had everything we needed, and then some.

Cathy and Tony are the best! Made sure we had what we needed, gave us tourist suggestions, sent us maps and directions, answered anything we asked of them in an incredibly short time.

I totally recommend this vacation stay for anyone who likes comfort, ease of traveling around, and just a wonderful place to call home for whatever time you are there.

Thank you Tony and Cathy for sharing your wonderful housing accommodations with us.
