Studio Appartment, completely furnished. Located just 7 minutes and 2.65 miles from the French Quarter and 4 blocks to St. Charles the heart of the parade routes. My studio apartment is located in the famous Historic Garden District on Magazine Street where locals go for antique shopping, restaurants and nightlife. A perfect location for those who want to catch some beads and explore the city. This fully furnished apartment features a private entrance, private balcony, free high speed Wi-Fi, on site coin-operated washer-dryer, complete kitchen, bath, queen size bed and off street parking.
My location is perfect year round, but is absolutely ideal if you are looking to come during the Essence Festival July 4th thru July 7th 2013.
Jazz Festival begining April 25th thru April 27th second weekend is May 1st thru May 4th 2014 and/or Mardi Gras.
Mardi Gras parades start February 21st and last until Mardi Gras day March 04, 2014. I am four blocks from all the festivities on the Uptown Parade Route and a quick street car ride downtown to the Superdome and French Quarter.
This location will also be perfect for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game weekend starting February 13 thru February 16th (game day)
Grocery stores, Rite Aid/Walgreens, liquor stores, shopping, restaurants and bars are all within walking distance and are all less than 4 blocks away. The street car line is four blocks away and is the city's form of public transportation. It gives visitors direct access to downtown, the french quarter, uptown, garden district, Audubon Park and the university area. The neighborhood is safe and friendly and it is very easy to hail a cab from our place.
Guests are welcome to enjoy New Orleans' good weather and sit out on our porch. There are numerous great restaurants in walking distance of our place. We look forward to meeting anyone wanting to explore our wonderful city.

Other Things to Note
My neighbors cat Fergal has become a fixture here. However, I would prefer that he does not come inside of the apartment. Some of my guests are allergic to cat dander. This is a studio in a very Old Sugar Cane Plantation that was built somewhere in the late 1800's. It has all of the original features and blemishes. However, this is a very comfortable studio, if you are looking for ultra clean & modern amenities this probably will not suit your needs.
Please no smoking or pets inside.(Pets considered on a case by case situations) It would be appreciated if shoes come off at the door. The Wine refrigerator is off limits. Since I am not charging an additional cleaning fee on most dates please leave the house in the condition you received it
I do provide bar soap, iron, & a hair dryer.

For the most part we enjoyed our stay. The neighbourhood is lovely and the neighbours themselves very welcoming. The house we stayed in is full of old grandeur, but could do with a good clean and de-clutter, particularly the windows, sills and kitchen, which also needed a frying pan!
located in the heart of the Garden District just a quick walk to cute little shops and restaurants! We only stayed for one day and wish we could have stayed longer! Very charming room :)
Gray and I had such a fun time at the Garden District Gem. It's in the heart of by far one of the most magnificent neighborhoods in America. Plenty of personal walking tours of the hood, parks, and close to the street car. Gretta's studio came with everything promised, and we spent our last afternoon on the porch, sipping coffee and eating donuts and sandwiches (from Stein's and District Donut down the street). Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a convenient, clean, and fun place to anchor their stay in NOLA.
Very convenient to all the shopping and restaurants on Magazine St. Greta was very accommodating. I was visiting my daughter and I know she would have liked this place but for me it was a tad too Bohemic.
Gretta's space is gorgeous and very comfortable. It's located in a great neighborhood with tons of historic residences and shops nearby. All amenities are as listed, and she was quick to answer questions after booking. The experience couldn't have gone more smoothly.
We really enjoyed our stay at Gretta's house. It's a perfect location to explore the city! Gretta was responsive and helpful. Thanks!
The apartment is an eclectic space in a great part of the city. Stay here if you want to be away from the hustle of the French Quarter, but still be surrounded by cool restaurants, shops and bars.
