    VillaRosa – Uptown Carrollton

    This house is our newest addition to VillaRosa Vacation Rentals. This elegant townhome is situated in the Historic Carrollton District of Uptown New Orleans. The house contains 3 bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms, with a gorgeous courtyard and a large balcony patio, making it perfect for events. It is also 2 blocks from the St. Charles streetcar, making it easy to get to all the best attractions of New Orleans.

    Our house is also a perfect location for wedding guests or graduation parties. The 1st floor has the living/dining room, a large kitchen which opens into the TV room in the back, plus a beautiful brick and slate courtyard with a soothing fountain.

    On the 2nd floor, the master bedroom has a king bed, walk-in closet and master bathroom. The guest bedroom has two queen beds and is situated right next to the guest bathroom. There is also a laundry room with washer, dryer and sink.

    The 3rd floor loft is often the favorite of our guests! With a king bed and a trundle daybed, there is space for plenty. And the best part is that the 3rd floor bedroom opens onto a spacious balcony, where you can put your feet up in the hammock, or sip on a cool refreshing drink and laze around.

    VillaRosa – New Orleans is our newest addition to the VillaRosa name, in the Historic Carrollton District of infamous New Orleans, Louisiana. The Big Easy, as this city is called, is a veritable melting pot (or gumbo pot) of cultures – from France, Spain and Europe to Haiti, the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean. The origin of Jazz, New Orlean's music culture is alive and well today, with live music in every corner. And it's not just jazz that you'll find in this city: blues, funk, rock and hip-hop and many more feature. To top it off, New Orleans cuisine is like no-other, with abundant seafood, Cajun and Creole specialties at every corner, you can prepare to have your tastebuds tantalized.

    Our house is just a mile away from historic Oak Street, with famous Jacques-Imos restaurant and live music from the Maple Leaf Bar (go there on Tuesday nights for Rebirth Brass Band!). And literally a few block down the street is infamous Rock 'N Bowl, where you can go for excellent live bands, family fun, bowling, and even Cajun Zydeco dance nights!

    If you want to explore Uptown and/or head into downtown, you're in luck, because our house is 1 block away from the end of the St Charles Streetcar line. Ride the line for only $1.25 ($3 for the day), or get a Jazzy Pass for the duration of your vacation. Along the St Charles Streetcar line from our house, you'll find: Camellia Grill, New Orleans Daquiris, historic Uptown homes, Audobon Park, Tulane University, Loyola University, Superior Seafood, Columns Hotel, Delachaise Wine Bar, Lee Circle, and of course, Bourbon Street at the end, just to name a few!

    It’s the ideal place for any gathering: weddings, family reunions, corporate getaways, you name it! The 5 spacious 2nd-floor bedrooms have a mixture of queen & twin beds for total flexibility. For private entertainment, the third floor has a covered patio dining area & hammocks to laze around while you watch the surfers, or join them below! The master suite is also on the third floor with a beautifully tiled master bath, or for the more adventurous, there is an exotic, beach-inspired, open-air bath. Other amenities in the house include: a movie room for those rainy days, a modern kitchen with stainless appliances & boundless living space with breathtaking views of the blue sea. Outside, the beach-side of the house is covered with 4 gazebos for entertainment day-or-night. Splash around in the pool & when you’re ready for a snack, grab it at the outdoor kitchen & bar. Or, head to the pig-roast gazebo for a Puerto Rican treat!

    Surfing Hallows Beach – Info: When they talk about Hallows Beach, surfers say ‘this is what a wave is all about’. Hollows is insane when it’s firing. With good clean blue water, spitting barrels, and beautiful scenery. Best of all, Hollows Beach is basically your backyard! BUT, while Hollows is the main break here, there are a few other breaks in the area…El Momo, Las Arenas Punto de Panico, El Tahiti, El Reto, Mingo’s Wedge. If you’re interested, let us know when you make your reservations and we’ll direct you to these hidden treasures!

    Car: necessary

    Willow Cottage

    Its our Fifth anniversary, and you are invited. Thanks to you all, we have progressed much in this time. Lets have a toast for this.

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Praesent aliquam, justo convallis luctus rutrum, erat nulla fermentum diam, at nonummy quam ante ac quam. Maecenas urna purus, fermentum id, molestie in, commodo porttitor, felis.

    Edgar Allan Poe, author of “Annabel Lee” and “The Fall of the House of Usher” , is easily recognized as one of the foremost masters of horror and the macabre. His works have inspired terror and anxiety in many individuals, primarily through the use of heavy psychological tones, as opposed to the gore and blood themes used and abused by writers of his time. Poes collected works easily counts as some of the most frightening material ever written, especially now, in an age where horror movies are relegated to two hours of bloodshed and senseless violence, lacking any true horror and relying solely on shock value to appear “scary.” Poe also stands out as being among the few who can make even the most mundane things seem utterly terrifying, a feat emulated by Stephen King and several Japanese horror authors, but never truly duplicated.

    In a completely different vein of horror from his predecessors, and arguably creating a sub-genre of horror through his works, H. P. Lovecraft also stands out. His works, while lacking in humanity, are difficult to see as anything but terrifying, particularly because of the apparent lack of humanity in them. In contrast to writers of previous generations, Lovecraft focused more on the truly monstrous, ignoring the human element that most horror writers tended to insert into their works since the days of the Gothic era. His stories were littered with monsters that knew neither morality nor mercy, seeing humanity as insignificant insects and, in Lovecrafts malignant world of ancient races and Elder Gods, humanity was insignificant. He also brought back something from the Gothic horror era, showing his readers that knowledge, even just a little knowledge, can lead to the most terrifying of discoveries. This is perhaps best exemplified by the so-called “Cthulhu Mythos,” a collection of stories that centered around Lovecrafts anti-mythological beings.

    Frankenstein

    1. Among the most enduring horror classics in the world is that of Shelleys “Frankenstein,” which combines the elements of horror with the intrinsic questions that plagued morality and philosophy at the time.
    2. In some ways, the story is one that puts a new spin on the old ghost story, in that the “ghost” is inevitably caused by the actions of mortal men who meddled in things they were not meant to.
    3. The story, aside from being a genuine tale of terror, also took on the role of a lesson in morality and the limits to just how far medical science could go.
    4. Prolonging life is one thing, but bringing back the dead is another thing entirely, which is one of the subtle messages of the novel.
    5. The underlying question of whether or not Frankensteins creature is the monster, or if it is Frankenstein himself, also contributes to making the story a memorable, chilling tale.

    However, very few stories can truly stand up against the pure terror and the subtle anxiety and dread caused by Bram Stokers infamous novel, “Dracula.” The novel is a hallmark of the Gothic horror era, presenting a villain of potentially epic scope in the guise of a remarkable gentleman and nobleman. It deviated from other vampire stories of the time in that the vampire, Dracula, was not monstrous in appearance. He looked every inch a master and nobleman, establishing the “lord of the night” archetype that would be a stock image of vampire characters in literature for centuries to come. It also had all the elements necessary to both frighten readers and keep them coming back for more, marking it as the most enduring horror novel in history.
