About Susan Gurley

We are mid westerners who fell in love with New Orleans. Of course it doesn't hurt that our daughter and family live a few blocks away. She told us we must buy this house, and we did! Everything has been replaced or restored, from the piers, to the siding, insulation and wiring, those things no one can see but that make the house very comfortable. We had a blast decorating the interior, and hope you like the artwork and our small but significant and growing library of books on the area's history.

Susan Gurley purchased this house in 2013

Why Susan Gurley chose East Riverside

We wanted a comfortable home close to our family. This shotgun double is perfect for us. There is a long-term tenant next door. Our 900 square foot side is spacious enough to stretch out in, yet small enough to be manageable.

Very nice neighborhood home for a weekend visit

  • 4 of 5

This classic NOLA shotgun is clean and well put together. It's a great spot from which to venture out for shopping and tourism. Near a vibrant Magazine St. shopping and food district, you can walk around comfortably from morning into the evening. There is good public transportation to all tourist areas and if you are big walkers, as we are, you can get in lots of steps to see all that NOLA has to offer.

Nice living room, functional TV/dining space and kitchen for weekend tourism, comfy bed and 1.5 baths. The house is clean and well maintained.

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week. We were so pleased that we had. The cottage itself was immaculate, comfortable and the owner was extraordinarily accommodating. Our deposit was immediately returned. The shotgun is furnished in comfortable and lovely furniture (especially the bed). The washing machine and dryer are very large. We didn't use the kitchen (too many good restaurants), but it was big and looked to have everything one would need. The location was an easy walk to both the Magazine Street bus and the St. Charles streetcar, so it was simple to get to the French Quarter. There were many good restaurants nearby, so in all ways, this was a great place to stay. I highly recommend it.

The home was so comfortable and had everything we needed!!! The bed was so comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this renovated shotgun! What a perfect place for our honeymoon! Susan has made sure everything you might need is available. The king-size bed was amazing, so comfortable. We were close to everything and really enjoyed all the books about New Orleans that were available in the house. It was cold the entire time we were there, and my husband said he wished he had brought slippers as the floor was cold!! The temperature was not typical for NOLA for sure!! We will definitely recommend this awesome house to our family and friends! What a great first experience with a VRBO! Just wish it had been warmer so we could enjoy the beautiful back yard!! Thank you, Susan!! Your house is awesome!

Adorable home for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to visit New Orleans and this beautiful home made us feel welcome from the moment we got there. It is in an area that is seeing a lot of revitalization and is close to a lot of cute restaurants and shops. Unfortunately, we were there for New Years' weekend, when it was quite cold, and while we were able to easily find parking in front of the house (and across the street) we ended up driving to most of the places we went. But you could easily walk to all the cool attractions! The neighborhood was very quiet, even on NYE, which surprised me.The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the decor and detail is what I wanted to see in a New Orleans shotgun. I love the half-bath floor! Don't pass up a chance to stay here!
