Overview

Bywater House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Away from the chaos of Bourbon street this historic double shotgun has been artistically renovated and sits in the heart of a thriving artist/musician's neighborhood. Your vacation starts the second you walk in the door and take a seat at the hand crafted bar with piano tucked in the corner. Better yet take your drink to the claw foot tub for a long soak as you gaze out on a garden brimming with heirloom flowers and vegetables.

Don't get too caught up in the house though because the neighborhood awaits... You're just a few blocks from some of the best eats in town, NY Times acclaimed pizza at Sugar Park, healthy and delicious breakfast and lunch at Satsuma, praline bacon at Elizabeth's...you can even have a bloody mary delivered to your doorstep!

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • alternative lifestyle

About Gabriel

I've been active duty Coast Guard for 12 years. I came to New Orleans after the storm and can't imagine living anywhere else.

I travel a lot and have lived in Mexico, Paris and all over the states.

Gabriel purchased this house in 2009

Why Gabriel chose Bywater

The Bywater is New Orleans' best neighborhood. It's a thriving spot where artists and musicians live and it has a unique energy. There are great restaurants, bars, tons of galleries and great music venues all within blocks.

What makes this house unique

Being in the center of it all but in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The home sits on a double lot, the garden is huge!

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

Everything we needed (or could want) to create a super relaxing JazzFest was there at this amazingly comfortable, funky home.

The kitchen was fully equipped for anything you'd want to conquer up. It was so comfortable; the hardest part was pulling ourselves off the porch and going out to explore New Orleans.

We rode bikes everywhere, to the fest and out for music at night. The neighborhood was great and close to all kinds of wonderful restaurants, bakeries, markets, an easy bike ride to anywhere you'd want to go.

Sully's Sanitarium was clean, convenient, and well-equiped for a long weekend in the Big Easy. Everything was provided! The beds were cozy, the showers clean.... it was a nice switch from the typical chain hotel. The owner was available and incredibly helpful. We'll be staying here again!

Absolutely amazing!

We stayed at Sully's for Voodoo Fest weekend and absolutely loved it! The house is exactly as pictured probably even better! Everything you needed was provided. The house was immaculate and designed and decorated phenomenally! The sitting porch and back yard is where we spent most of our time, it was so beautiful! The beds are comfy, there is plenty of extra linens and blankets. The bathroom situation was great. Men's and women's bathroom plus a master bath with a soaking tub that will rock your socks! We came from Baton Rouge and have always stayed in the quarter, I will NEVER stay anywhere in NOLA except Sully's Sanatorium from now on! This was our first VRBO experience and I could not have hoped for better. Thank you to Gabriel and Sully for making our trip amazing!!

A Real New Orleans Home

  • 5 of 5
Most of what I would say has been mentioned in previous posts - most important things are location, comfort, authenticity and just a general feeling that Sully enjoys sharing her home. Minor things like we didn't have cable tv to catch up on news etc and couldn't figure out how to play music (we're not terribly tech savvy) and yes the shower is either screaming hot or freezing cold we have no complaints whatsoever. The only bugs we saw were a few errant mosquitoes. You can't go wrong staying here - beats the heck out of a sterile, no personality hotel.

Funky and cool place to stay in NOLA!

  • 5 of 5
We booked Sully's sanitarium for this Labor Day weekend. We were a bunch of 5 friends visiting New Orleans for the first time. This place was perfect - Huge house, lots of space, high ceilings, bohemian art pieces all over the house, lovely porch and a well equipped kitchen and best of all the bikes! 2 of our friends loved biking around the neighborhood. We didnt meet the owner but he had kept everything ready for our arrival and the instructions were quite clear and detailed. Its a quiet neighborhood with beautiful colorful houses lining the street. It's 5 min cab ride away from Frenchmen Street and French Quarters and you can walk/bike as well. The owner had thought of everything we would need and had even provided a laptop which was really thoughtful. We had a wonderful stay here and we will definitely come back to Sully's and NOLA next time!

Awesome spot in a great 'hood

I was so, so happy to have found this place. I was staying in New Orleans for a week, and didn't want to be in the middle of all the French Quarter madness - this place was perfect. Walking distance to mostly everything, but totally has it's own character and feel. The neighborhood is bright, colourful, and full of cool people - and great restaurants, interesting shops, etc. While I was there I had lots of great meals, checked out a local dog park, and even checked out a yoga class, one block away. The place itself was perfect. It's by no means a sterile, cookie-cutter rental, but it has all kinds of personality, and the crazy, overgrown, wonderful garden is an experience all on its own. Highly recommended.

Funky, artsy, sweet

  • 4 of 5
This is a really wonderfully placed home, near awesome restaurants, and very close to the French Quarter. There were bikes available for tooling around town, which is the best way to enjoy the area. Although we went at one of the hottest times of the year, the home was cool and welcoming. The kitchen was well supplied and fun to cook in. The difficulty was in the plumbing. The toilette in the master room wasn't working well (it had to be flushed from the inside and wasn't filling properly) and the showers were a torturous. The water would move between freezing cold and scalding hot and could not be controlled by the faucets. We tried alternating our shower times so no two were being used at the same time, and made sure no other water was being used in the house, to no avail. After long days of very hot, muggy New Orleans, this stressful shower-taking was a very disappointing aspect of our stay. There were also many large cockroaches (jumping out of kitchen drawers and crawling on the bathroom floor and ceilings) but I'm sure this is a problem of the area and not just of this home. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this rental to others — be prepared for the frustrating showers and bugs, and you'll be fine.
