Overview

Lake Terrace/Lake Oaks Castle Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Baths Centrally Located In Upscale Subdivision

4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Baths with wrought iron balcony furnished with taste of New Orleans and french decor. Beautiful area to walk in across the street from University of New Orleans Lake Front, 2 Blocks from Lake Pontchartrain, 3 bedrooms have their private bathrooms, enjoy the luxury of a Greek shower in the master suite, and private courtyard/atrium. The house is so typical of the New Orleans architecture with the house built around an open courtyard and windows for walls on 3 sides of the open area. This arrangement gives you the feel of living outside but the benefits of being in the regulated temperature. The family room offers relaxing comfort in the leather couch and recliners arranged to view the large flat screen TV with Direct TV satellite service. The neighborhood is perfect for taking a nice morning walk through the area with each house distinctive and custom built and viewing the beautiful landscaping they offer. And if you would rather stroll along the seawall of Lake Ponchartrain, you would have but a short 3-4 block walk to get to the Lake. You can then stroll for miles along the seawall, watch the fishermen, the seagulls, pelicans, ducks and enjoy the Lake breeze. The location also lends itself to taking bus 55 on Elysian Fields which will take you to the French Market, Café Du Monde, Jackson Square, or Canal Street without having to transfer or change buses. The ride is only about 15 minutes. Then if you want to transfer, for the same price you can catch the streetcar and travel up through the Garden District all the way to Audubon Park and the Zoo. It lets you be in the middle of all the activity when you choose to be, but then able to enjoy the peace and tranquility when that mood strikes you.

About Jean Lake

Grew up in New Orleans, attended high school there. Now living in St. Louis doing property management. But New Orleans will always be my home. Once you've been there you always miss it and want to return. I still have many old friends there and some relatives. I love to go antique and flea market shopping. I lived in France for a year many years ago and still love all things French.

Jean Lake purchased this castle in 2009

Why Jean Lake chose Lake Terrace/Lake Oaks

The Castle has good energy; very peaceful, quiet, and not just a place to stay but is an event in itself. It is filled with my favorite things that remind me of Old New Orleans or Europe, particularly France. The private courtyard is something that is typical of New Orleans but not often found in the more modern architecture. Its located very convenient to the French Quarter by car or by bus, but yet it is in a neighborhood with schools, grocery stores, restaurants and other amenities not found in the middle of town.

What makes this castle unique

When youy walk into the foyer through the massive front door and see the slate floor, the beautiful glass walls looking into the courtyard you will surely fall in love with The Castle as I did. Then the twin staircases going up to the loft and looking down on the typical Old New Orleans twin chandeliers add such unique beauty and character to the home. The Greek Shower Room off the master bedroom is a relaxing retreat from all the excitement and partying you will experience in the Big Easy. You will experience the beauty of things from long ago with the conveniences of the modern day.

Beautiful and best equipped vacation house we have ever rented

  • 5 of 5
The Gentilly Castle was a fabulous vacation choice. We took a party of 8 to NOLA, for a week, to celebrate my birthday. The castle was the perfect place. It was in a clean, good neighborhood (very important) and the location was exactly what we needed. Just a few minutes to the French Quarter, we were able to drive or take the public transportation (yaay, drink alcohol, don't drive), which was right directly in front of the house. You can get a Jazzy Pass, a flat rate of $3 a day ticket, for the unlimited use of the trolleys and buses. We had access to taxi's, too. When we didn't feel like attacking the madness of the city, we went the couple of blocks in the other direction to the lake and all of its great restaurants. The house was beautiful, well kept, clean and stocked with everything you could need. It had a center courtyard and it was so nice to be able to go hang out outside, in the beautiful weather, without leaving the house. We had tickets to the James Taylor concert, the concert venue was only 3 blocks from the house. Amazing! The owner, Jean, was a dream to work with and the caretaker was helpful above and beyond the call of duty. We were a pretty "high maintenance" crew, but Sacha had all of the answers and pointed us in the right direction every time. Our deposit was promptly returned on the Monday following check out, as promised. I would definitely return and I openly recommend this property to anyone who wants to experience the Big Easy, while resting in a stunning, private home just outside of the noise zone. I am already telling my friends where to stay when they go to NOLA. Beautiful, I can't wait to go back.

Not Too Close and Not Too Far

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect size and location for the five members of our family to meet for a long weekend. We had lots of room to relax and hang out, and at the same time we were a short drive or bus ride from the French Quarter and the Superdome. The only thing missing was a hair dryer--easy to rectify.

Loved It!

Stayed at the Castle with my family for my Son's destination wedding. It was perfect. The home was so comfortable. My family was absolutely satisfied. If you get a chance to stay in Nola this is the place to stay.

Ideal location and lots of room

  • 5 of 5
Our short stay in New Orleans has been made perfect through renting this lovely home, which is located less than 5 miles from the French Quarters. The house is very elegant, yet comfortable, and pity that it got cold, we were so looking forward to sitting out in the courtyard. The only thing I would recommend is if there is a patio set in the courtyard instead of plastic chairs that would match the elegant settings. Overall, 5 Stars! Thank you.

Excellent

We were in town for the Sunbelt Basketball Tournament and the house was in a perfect location 2 blocks from the arena. The house was exactly as described and we would definitely stay there again.
