Why owner/property manager chose Gentilly Terrace
This jewel is THE LANDMARK HOME of Gentilly Terrace, a national historic FIRST 20th century New Orleans neighborhood! Venerable Oaks line Gentilly Boulevard creating a park-like setting! Gentilly Terrace is a "foot-friendly" neighborhood- one of the safest areas in the city. Chateau Gentilly is ideal because there is off-street parking for over 10 cars! and located only 2 houses from a Broad line bus stop (the MAIN bus route through character-rich New Orleans!). This one bus goes through gorgeous New Orleans neighborhoods and directly to Canal Street where there's shopping, restaurants and more! *Less than 10 minute drive to the French Quarters/ Downtown CBD *Just 8 minutes to City Park, which has magnificent flora along the pathways of the Botanical Garden, boating on Big Lake and the beautiful Couturie Forest! It holds everything from bike paths and fishing lagoons, to an amusement park! *Only a 5 minute drive to the Lakefront where on a beautiful weekend afternoon, you'll see couples sunning on blankets and family barbeques on Lake Pontchartrain! *Less than 10 minute drive to the French Quarter Fest, which celebrates New Orleans food, music, and people! *The Jazz Fest (last week in April), an annual celebration of the music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana, is at the New Orleans Fairgrounds which is ON GENTILLY street we're on! *Just 5 minutes from the Gentilly Fest which celebrates all things "Gentilly," including continuous live music, sumptuous food from local restaurants & caterers and fine arts and crafts for sale. *8 minute drive to the Voodoo Music+Arts Fest, which combines Bohemian culture, arts and the types of cuisine that New Orleans is famous for!

Great space we had an amazing time!
This house fit our group perfectly! We had a wonderful time and it was a great location. Only ten min uber to Burbon.
Awesome Home for Girls Retreat
Yearly we take a Girls Retreat and this year our destination was New Orleans, LA. We always use VRBO so, we found this home and booked it for 4 days and 3 nights. We loved it!! The house is older and has great charm! It is in a great location and not too far from all the fun. It was central to everything we wanted to do. There were 13 ladies and we all had plenty of room in the spacious home. The kitchen and dining room are very beautiful and were our favorite places in the house to hangout. We had some issues with the microwave as we thought it did not work until we discovered on the last day that we were not closing it completely. Make sure the door is pushed in completely and it works just fine. There were plenty of towels for everyone and we did utilize the washer and dryer quite a bit while we were there. The only additional things we needed as a larger group were more pans as we prepared breakfast for the large group every morning and the air condition seemed to be finicky at times during our stay. The homeowner was fabulous and although I only spoke with her once before arriving, she was very responsive to my call and text messages. I would recommend this home for large groups and family functions!!
This house is great, very old but updated everywhere. We we're here for a bachelor party, and brought some food to cook for breakfast and lunch. The house didn't have a grill, but with one phone call to the owner - we had a grill the next day. The owner was very accommodating and the stay was very enjoyable. This house is on a road with many nice older homes. You can't go wrong with this place. Thanks again!
Wonderful NOLA Experience
We had a wonderful experience staying at this historic home. The house is absolutely beautiful and provided the perfect accommodations for our party of 14. Shelly was the perfect hostess. She was accessible, flexible, and so easy to work with. We highly recommend this fabulous property.
