Enjoy true Souther hospitality in this beautiful 1899 New Orleans cottage with private POOL! Located on the banks of the Mississippi river Algiers Point is the second oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. This house has wonderful historic elements with all the updated comforts of home. This three bedroom house has beautiful hardwood floors, mantel pieces and 13ft ceilings giving each room a spacious, airy quality. Although the lay out is not a shot-gun, you do need to walk through the master bedroom to get to the third bedroom. These two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill full bath.
Just like the City of Paris, New Orleans was settled on either side of a river. The first the Historic French Quarter and the Second, the industrial Algiers Point, famous for being the epicenter of ship building. Although you are a short ferry ride away from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter, Algiers Point offers an escape from it all. This neighborhood is tranquil, charming and safe. We can truly offer you the best of both worlds!
I do not live on the property but am a mere 4 houses away. I am more than happy to meet you and let you in or respect your privacy and allow you to let yourselves in. I love this city and am happy to answer any questions or give recommendations.
There is a relaxing and beautiful pool in the backyard. It is fenced all around for your protection. Children are not allowed in the pool area unless accompanied by an adult. I do come and clean the pool several times a week. Please note, the pool is not heated and the small pool is a soaker tub (not a hot tub). Here in Louisiana we like to cool things down rather than heat them up!
You may rent a car and park in front of the house. There is a ferry that takes you across the river to the French Quarter. The cost is $2 per passenger, each way. Free for children 2 and under and $1 for Seniors with i.d.
This property is a licensed and registared short-term rental with the city of New Orleans. License #:17STR-09867
