About Gary Z

Gary is a Native New Orleanian who has lived in San Francisco and traveled 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 house in 2009

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 house unique

In addition to some great NOLA decor, 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.

Convenient, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay went off without a hitch--I've been in many HomeAways / VRBOs and this one was the perfect mix of being set up for visiting groups and feeling like a home. The beds were super comfy (and big...so nice to have kings). The bathrooms were beautiful and CLEAN. We didn't get to take advantage of the outdoors bc it was a bit chilly, but I'm sure we could have had fun on the back porch.

The duplex approach is very cool for a large group (12 people)--having 2 kitchens is a great perk. The location was awesome in general..whether you were headed to FQ or staying uptown (I think that's what it's called :)).

And finally, Gary, the owner was super responsive, present, and helpful. Will def be back if we're doing a big group in NOLA again and have already recommended it to friends.

Weekend in New Orleans

What a lovely New Orleans home! Our whole family went, renting both houses (4 couples). The location is great with parking right out front. The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Our host Gary made everything so easy.

awesome place to stay, especially with a big group

  • 5 of 5

This place was WAY bigger and nicer than I expected. (I tired of the hotels near the FQ). Beautiful and spacious place in a quiet neighborhood. nice kitchens with modern appliances, plenty of bathrooms; upstairs-outside patios, WiFi, great (local) owner. Highly recommended, especially if you have your own vehicle; otherwise, call a cab in advance especially during busy seasons

Wonderful house, quiet yet close to so many uptown gems. A great way to experience New Orleans like

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful New Orleans home. We celebrated my parents' 45th anniversary. We had 3 couples, another adult and a 3 year old child. We were all very happy and comfortable for our entire stay. The location is a perfect uptown location. Whole Foods and my favorite uptown shops are just blocks away up Magazine St., not to mention a delicious boulangerie and a favorite poboy shop as well. A great way to experience New Orleans like a local. Safe, easy and available parking right in front of the house was an added bonus. We would definitely come back and stay here again. Thanks to Gary for making the booking and arrangements so easy!

Fantastic Houst, Location, Experience

  • 5 of 5

Rented the half-house (two full bedrooms, 2.5 baths) and stayed for 3 nights. The House was in excellent condition, exactly as pictures suggested. Gary was very easy to communicate with, and accommodating of our party. Access to the house and ease of use made the whole experience go very smoothly. Location is excellent, close to the Whole Foods uptown, and one block of Magazine with easy access to shops/bars/restaurants (having a car did make getting around a lot easier, especially as cabs seem harder and hard to get in Nola). We were two couples and a friend, and there was still plenty of room. Very spacious floorplan, comfortable beds, wifi/cable, multiple televisions, responsive A/C and heat, nice, clean bathrooms, full kitchen. Overall, the entire weekend was made better by having this place to come back to at night. Thanks for everything Gary.
