About Dan

Bought my home 7 years ago and renovated it myself. I Love New Orleans culture and can make the most of your vacation.

Dan purchased this villa in 2008

Why Dan chose Central City/Garden District

This is my baby! I bought, designed and renovated it myself. It is a Oasis on the outside and a palace on the inside!

What makes this villa unique

The location is outstanding. Walk to dozens of resturaunts, bars and shopping on the best section of Magazine Street. Great neighborhood. The pool and spa surrounded by gardens are spectacular. Walk to all Mardi Gras parades.

Uptown Tropical Oasis-Pool,Spa/Outdoor Kitchen-2 Blocks from Best Of Magazine!
average rating of 4.918605 based on 86 reviews

Terrific oasis away from the insanity, but convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful stay at this property. The place is clean and comfortable with everything you need for a great time and the backyard pool and hot tub were a terrific hangout for the whole family. The house is walking distance from Magazine Street with tons of restaurants, shops, and bars. It's also walking distance to St. Charles street where you can catch the street car to the French Quarter. We rented a car and found driving and parking all over the city very easy. Dan is a charming host who will connect you with all the best recommendations. Follow his advice! He suggested an airboat tour of the Bayou, which was an unforgettable and fabulous time. I hope that we will have the chance to get back here again! Thank you Dan!!!

Fantastic Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place! So glad we stayed at Dan's instead of a rental in the French Quarter as we originally intended. Neighborhood is fantastic! Steps from the Garden District and Magazine Street where there are lots of great shops and restaurants, and a great grocery store. The interior of the place is very spacious, comfy and clean, and provides everything you need for a relaxing stay...and the sheets are super soft! The outside backyard and pool area is the heart of the place, and is almost indescribable. Very eclectic and filled with lush greenery, comfy furniture, cool art, and music, we spent most of our time out there and marveled at it every time we stepped into it. Dan, the owner, lives upstairs and is extremely helpful and knowledgable about the city. He made our 3 day stay (two moms and their teenage kids) fun for all. Thanks so much Dan! Hope to come back soon!

Great location for fun and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Uptown Tropical Oasis for a girls' weekend. This was my second time staying in this rental. It was clean and as described on the website. The location is great- within walking distance to restaurants, bars, and shops on Magazine. But, the backyard courtyard is the best part. It's a private and relaxing place unwind outdoors after a day of fun.

If you are looking to enjoy a safe beautiful part of town, rent this home. Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a stay in Dan's uptown tropical oasis and will return if I get the chance. Beds were clean and comfy, and overall atmosphere was laid back and comfortable. This area is safe and provides exceptional food and spirits within walking distance. I feel revived after my stay.
