Now that that is out of the way....


The apartments are in this 100 yr old gated 'double shotgun.’ Two rocking chairs welcome you to the property.

I have had a garden design business for years. I am told the garden is lovely.

Walk to the grocery or local restaurants .You will be 2 blocks off of our beloved Magazine.

You will be in the 3000 block, between Louisiana Avenue & Washington Avenue.

St. Charles Avenue is only a few blocks up Louisiana Avenue!

Referred to as 'The Avenue' St. Charles is where you catch a street car, taking you uptown to Audubon Park's golf course & Zoo.

Tulane & Loyola Universities are across the street from the park.

Traveling downtown on the streetcar will carry you 3 miles through our Central Business District to the French Quarter.

The CBD has some of the city's great restaurants, art galleries, local owned shops & workshops (like glassblowing).

Hotels & museums.The WWII Museum & African American Museum are in the CBD.

The trolley ends where the French Quarter begins at Canal Street.

You can come home on the trolley or I prefer to call United Cab to bring you back.

Cross Esplanade Street on the far side of the Quarter and you will be in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood where Frenchmen Street & the city's great musicians go to meet & play.

Eat upstairs at Adolfo’s,then go down to Snug Harbor or any of the great places to see & support musicians there.

Our Voodoo Experience Weekend Trip, turned in to my Fiance and myself eloping in our fav City of New Orleans. Trying to find the perfect location for a quick Wedding Ceremony, was not as easy, until we realized we had the perfect location, in the backyard of this adorable home that we had rented. The Owner Susie, went out of her way to make the morning of the Wedding extra special, by even making me a flower bouquet to hold (for which I shall remain eternally grateful), and ended up being a Witness on our Marriage License.

The property itself, was perfect for the 4 of us staying. We loved the location and being in the Garden District which was a refreshing change from the craziness of French Quarters or Bourbon. The area has several cafes, restaurants, bars etc owned and operated by the Locals and is not overly crowded by Tourists. You really get a feel for the Nola Locals by being in this area and we absolutely appreciated it.

Can't say enough about Susie, her hospitality, her knowledge of the area, her eclectic sense of decor and her infectious personality.

We are already planning our next stay back at her property.

We stayed in this house for my bachelorette party this weekend, and we enjoyed ourselves! The owner has a fun sweet personality, and understood our kind of crazy 😉 It fit all five of us comfortable. The über to bourbon street was about $60 for one night. All her decor in the house is shabby chic and perfect! We will be back for sure!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying in the garden district is the best way to go! Get up in the morning and have your first cup of coffee in Susie's lush gardens, or enjoy a walk around this beautiful district. Two of our best meals in New Orleans were only blocks away on Magazine Street. From Susie's house it only costs about $6.00 to Uber to the French Quarter where you can enjoy all the music, noise and excitement you can handle. Then .... come back to the peace and quiet of this lovely area for a glass of wine on the front porch. Great area, great hostess.

Superb decor, great host, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were thoroughly pleased with the beautiful, immaculately maintained, and tastefully appointed home. We've rented more than 40 apartments in U.S. and Europe and this one is at the top. Being right near Magazine Street we found it comfortable, and convenient. Nothing seems to have been overlooked; the rooms and décor are an artistic achievement and reflect the historic NOLA garden district authenticity. We loved the linens. The front porch presents a perfect place to sit and sip wine while enjoying the passing scene. AND the garden yard is a huge winding paradise that host Susie maintains at above professional levels. It would put many botanical gardens to shame. The care taken by the Susie to insure our comfortable stay is definitely a cut above. She went to great lengths to make our arrival and stay as comfortable and worry free as is possible. We've previously stayed in several other areas around NOLA and this apartment is ideally suited to maximize the town's best features. Walk to the trolley, bus, or the best Magazine Street has to offer. Noted NOLA restaurant Atchafalaya is on the corner while dozens of others are only steps away which makes it hard to choose where to go. I would recommend this great find of ours to anyone without reservation. Susie Wrenn is a terrific host. We will return to be her Wrenters again soon.

My sister, who is visiting from the UK and I, have stayed with Susie before. She is the perfect hostess, making one's stay very enjoyable. She has done so much with the garden in the past three years, great landscaping. It's a quiet, yet close to everything location, so much better than the noise of the Quarter. I cannot give Susie and, of course her Great Dane, enough kudos.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property due to the homey feel. The property was beautifully decorated with the antiques and I enjoyed having coffee in the private back yard garden. We loved the location in proximity to Magazine street's shops and restaurants and the restaurant next to the property was excellent. Our dog was very happy and relaxed here so that was a plus! It was very quiet at night which was perfect for a good nights rest. We will stay again!
