About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Screened in 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' can even have a bloody mary delivered to your doorstep!

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 Downtown

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.

Eclectic Decor & Nice Garden

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I really enjoyed staying at Sully's Sanitarium. The artwork was amazing! The three bathrooms, all so different. There was lots of space and a well-equipped kitchen. We will be staying there again next Spring.

Cool spot

  • 5 of 5

Lots of character, this place was uniquely New Orleans. Awesome neighborhood outside of the crowded, touristy quarter with plenty of great food and easy access to sweet river trails.

Awesome Location in The Bywater

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with two friends recently stayed at Sully's Sanitarium in early December for four nights. Gabriel was so easy to communicate with and was very gracious with letting us check-in early and check-out late to accommodate our flight schedules. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed, although we weren’t there for much more than sleeping as we were out and about exploring! The location is fantastic – close to cool bars, good restaurants and some funky shops. We hit up many of the recommendations in the notebook on the counter. Elizabeth’s for breakfast (praline bacon = meat candy!), pizza at Pizza Delicious, coffee and breakfast sandwiches from Satsuma and many a drink right down the block at Bud Ripp’s! We felt like a local! No need for a car, but there typically were a few spots open on the street in the front of the house. There is a great paved trail that is along the river that takes you right into the Quarter. We would walk a different street every time we headed out just to admire the different homes, stop in at another neighborhood bar for a drink or visit one the little farmer’s/craft markets for some local goods. Uber and cabs delivered us safely home each night for under $10 from Frenchmen Street, although we never felt unsafe during our stay. Definitely recommend staying here if you are looking to experience a different side to NOLA other than the craziness of the Quarter.

Great location & house

  • 4 of 5

We spent four nights in Sully's Sanitarium in November, and really enjoyed our time there. The Bywater is a very cool location to be, the neighbourhood is a mix of beautiful painted homes and some home that could use a bit of care. We have a friend who is a police officer in the FQ, he said the neighbourhood could be a bit rough, so we weren't really sure what to expect... but it was GREAT! Lots of friendly people and you can see that the locals care about it. It's about a 10 minute and $10 cab ride to the French Quarter. Many cool placed within walking distance to eat at; Elizabeth's for home cooked breakfast (mmmm shrimp and grits), Satsuma Cafe is ore of a coffee house but they also serve a good breakfast/lunch, really good pizza from Pizza Delicious (they also delivered to the Sanitarium one night) and a fantastic late night restaurant/bar called Oxalis. We would stay in the area again in a heart beat!

The house is very cool! They have blended funky and classic and modern to make a really unique place to stay. I was surprised that when they said 'full bar' they meant full bar, you are on an honour system to pay for or replace what you drink from the bar. The set up of the bars, living room, dining room and kitchen is ideal. The ceilings have to be around 14 feet high, which make the whole place seem huge. The tv is great, hooked up to a house laptop and we were able to stream Netflix while recovering from out nights of fun. The bedroom are huge, the bathrooms are huge and the beds are very comfortable. Kings size bed in one, a queen in the master, and two beds (under the queen which is lifted about 4 feet off the ground) that we never tested. Lots of linens and towels, shampoo and body shop in the showers and the master has a claw foot tub that is amazing to lounge in!

The hot water takes a while to get going, but that is solved with patience and a glass of wine... however the bathroom in the hall way never did get hot water. I would have called, but the couple that used that bathroom didn't tell me until the end of the trip. Based on how the whole booking process and the house itself, I feel that had I known the problem and contacted Gabriel that he would have taken care of it.

We'd stay here again, in fact while showing pictures on of my friends asked if we could book it for October of 2016. The only question I have for Sully and Gabriel is this... what is up with the "Legalize Goats?" That had us laughing all week!

This house was fantastic. We lived the neighborhood, ease of parking, and spacious living area. Bikes were available too. When we arrived the wireless was working but then stopped and the dryer never worked but we can't complain because we did not contact the owner to ask for repairs. We loved our stay.
