About Gary Z

Gary is a Native New Orleanian who has lived in San Francisco and travelled the world, only to return home to NOLA! Having returned to marry the girl next door just a few months before Katrina, he has played his part in rebuilding this wonderful city through various real estate projects and other entrepreneurial ventures. And now he's never leaving!

Gary Z purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Gary Z chose West Riverside

This building was falling down after 'The Storm,' as we call it. When the chance came up to buy it from an out of town investor who was unable to recover from storm damages, we jumped at it.

The moment the neighbors saw that we were fining the place up and getting good people living there, they were really happy to see the neighborhood improving, one property at a time.

We are proud owners and Proud New Orleanians!

What makes this apartment unique

We decided to make your visit as comfy and soothing with the help of some of our vast collection of Indian and Asian art. Amassed from various world travels, the art is collectively known as Meditation Art. We sell much of the art and decorative items through

If you stay here and love something that is on the walls or shelves and want to take it home with you, we offer a Friends & Family special discount.

Ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

I am from Montreal, Quebec and recently stayed in the top floor unit; Apartment clean, ideally located, 2 minutes walk to bus 11 taking you straight to Canal St, 8-10 minutes walk to Red line Street Car all the way to Bourbon St; 4-6 minutes walk to the very upscale Wholefood supermarket, restaurants, shops, etc.

great air conditioning, Excellent WiFi, safe residential area at all times; Gary always answered his messages within 2-3 minutes. an ideal quiet spot to rest at the end of the day. Thanks Gary for all your suggestions; would definitely stay there again.

Neighborhood Delight!

  • 5 of 5

My two younger teenage kids and myself stayed here in March (I forgot to write my review). It was such a treat! Communicating with Gary was so easy. The place was so homey and comfortable! I was worried about parking for my suburban, but it turned out to be very easy. My kids said they wanted to come back and that it would be a cool place to live if they went to college over here. It is a different aspect from the hotels and craziness around the Bourbon St. area. A quaint area and a very relaxing vibe. We felt safe and secure, too. Thank you, Gary, and sorry it took so long to write this. We will be back!

Good place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this uptown apartment. All of New Orleans was available by pubic transit near this location. One block from Magazine St. and its multiple stores and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Richard! It's great when guests like you "get it" here in New Orleans. The neighborhoods are what make this city so special. Please come back again and refer your friends!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This just might have been my best experience in Nola. Gary was a wonderful owner to work with and he kept up with communication to a tee!

The location was clean and just what I was expecting from the photos. I was a little worried about the street parking at first, but it turned out to be just as easy as if I was pulling up in my own driveway.

This area or Nola is fantastic and my husband and I had a great time exploring.

Thanks again Gary for a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. We will be back!

Quaint & Charming

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was over booked so owner actually put us up in a larger one for the same price which was awesome. House was very clean! Beautiful high ceilings and all the lovely old charm renovated to like new! Gorgeous kitchen and bathrooms.. We were very comfortable.. Owner is super nice. I love the area .. Nice restaurants and shops just off Magazine. Only in town for an NBA game and location was great. Glad NOT to be near French Quarter! Thanks Gary!
