About Lori Rockett

Hi! We are Lori and John. We're both born and raised here. John and I both love to cook and have a local catering company specializing in Creole cuisine. We love New Orleans and participate in just about everything! Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Essence, Voodoo, and all the fun festivals in between! We have great parks, golf courses, restaurants etc......We are super excited to host this VRBO in 2015 and would love to help with any info about New Orleans and surrounding areas.

Lori Rockett purchased this house in 2000

Why Lori Rockett chose Uptown-Carrollton

We have lived in this Carrollton neighborhood for the last 17 years. It is a wonderful neighborhood with great neighbors and we also have a small park that hosts an Art fair once a month! The grocery store is 3blks away. We have restaurants, bars, vintage shopping, coffee shops that are within walking distance (6blks).

What makes this house unique

Our house has such a New Orleans flair! Gorgeous hard wood floors, vaulted ceiling, claw foot tub. We have made this house warm and comfortable, and of course a great kitchen and dining room for entertaining! This truly is your home away from home! Added bonus is a cute back patio that our past guests have loved.

Beautiful home in perfect New Orleans location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five nights over Thanksgiving. It was absolutely wonderful! When you stay here you feel like you are home, not in a rental. There were so many touches of southern hospitality. We loved the neighborhood including Palmer Park and Oak Street both within walking distance. We took Ubers to the French Quarter and Garden District. Highly recommend!

So easy to get in and the apartment was clean and bright. The air conditioning worked great thank goodness because it was very hot out. The neighborhood is quiet and very well kept. We will be staying there again!

Beautiful House and Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful stay!! The house was decorated exquisitely. Super clean too. Loved the quiet neighborhood. We parked our car in the driveway and took the streetcar for going downtown and ubered back ($9). Great southern hospitality fom Lori & John!! Loved after a long drive that there was a cold bottle of white wine! Would definitely recommend and come back.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is beautifully decorated and spacious. A chance to experience historic New Orleans architecture and still enjoy all of the modern amenities. Lori and John recommended some great restaurants. Street parking can be difficult in this area of New Orleans, so the off-street driveway parking is a huge plus for this home.
