Gabrielle Grace Manor

Lovingly Restored For An Authentic New Orleans Experience

Original hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings, beautifully restored home in a quiet and authentic New Orleans neighborhood close to everything. What else can you ask for from your New Orleans vacation home?

2 Bedroom | 2 Bath

Once you open the front door to the Gabrielle Grace Manor, you’ll be struck by the 12-foot tall ceilings and original hardwood floors stretching from front to back in our historic creole style shotgun house. 

Catch glimpses of the back of the house through the double, french style doors trimmed in bright white molding and accented by beautiful vine scrolling.

Full of southern antebellum charm with modern, brightly-colored New Orleans themed decor, our Bywater vacation home is not only a place to rest between your daily adventures, but a charming home away from home with all the modern amenities you need for a week-long stay.

The living room has 12-foot high ceilings accented by bright white trim and molding and original hardwood floors. There is plenty of room to seat everyone with a sofa, rocking recliner, and two accent chairs gathered around a decorative fireplace and 55″ Smart TV above the mantle. 

The roomy family kitchen, located at the back of the house, includes a large fridge (be sure to check inside for goodies when you arrive). There is a propane stove and oven, coffee pot, blender, microwave, and plenty of pots, pans, and dishes for a large breakfast or dinner if you decide to eat in. The dining table seats six.

Off the kitchen, you’ll find the full-size bathroom and a laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer leading to our outdoor patio. 

Walking through the shotgun house, you’ll find the front bedroom with a beautiful antique Queen-size bed with thick, Serta mattress, a soft and gorgeous duvet, and plenty of plump pillows.  Storage includes a roomy closet and dresser. This bedroom includes a private bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The 2nd bedroom has another Queen-size bed with Serta mattress and luxurious bedding. This room includes a dresser with mirror and plenty of plugs for essentials as well as a TV with cable. 

An additional full bathroom with a tub and shower combo is located in the back of the house so guests in each bedroom will have their own bathroom during the night. 

Our guests rave about spending early mornings or quiet evenings sitting outside on our fern-filled back courtyard. Enjoy multiple seating areas and outdoor dining either under the patio or out among the plants. Cook up burgers on the charcoal grill or just relax and listen to the distant sounds of revelry – you are in New Orleans after all!  

Welcome to the Bywater – the perfect location for a visit to New Orleans! Our homes are within walking distance to restaurants, bars and parks and are a short ride to the French Quarter, Frenchman Street, Downtown New Orleans, the Garden District, and the best of New Orleans. Perfect for a family vacation, romantic getaway, girl’s trip, or business.  

Be sure to check out all the books and guides to the best of New Orleans located throughout the house. We also leave our pantry stocked with a variety of items including some spices, coffee and creamer, teas, hot cocoa and more – feel free to use what you need.

Location! Location! Location!

Located in the historic Bywater District, Gabrielle Grace Manor is in the perfect location to spend your New Orleans vacation. Walk the four short blocks each morning to Elizabeth’s where you’ll enjoy one of the best southern breakfasts you can find in the city (fried green tomatoes and Bloody Mary’s!). Then, walk off your meal in Crescent Park along the Mississippi River.

After a quick Lyft ride to the French Quarter, Garden District, or downtown, you can spend a full day experiencing all that New Orleans is famous for – history, culture, historic bars and restaurants, sightseeing and more fun than you can imagine. Be sure and check out our list of favorite places in New Orleans or spend some time reading the guide books and brochures we leave for you before you venture out.

Reviews From Our Previous Guests

"My husband and I stayed here for a week for our fifth anniversary - we walked to breakfast every morning and enjoyed meeting locals out and about. We spent less than $100 on Lyft rides all week going into the French Quarter, to downtown museums, and on local tours. The house itself was so comfy and romantic - the beds are FANTASTIC. One day we stayed home all day and just enjoyed being lazy on the quiet patio."
