Why Andrew Craig chose Algiers Point
This is a safe quite neighborhood. Houses built in the 1800s. Houses are old and beautiful. Lots of Restaurants and Bars with live music in them. I respond to text quickly Andy. Please text a day before arrival.
What makes this House unique
This is the best neighborhood in the world. Lots of festivals, music, food and friendly people. Have a kennel if you need one.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had such a busy and stressful April; this house was a perfect place for us to wind down the month. There is a big, airy bedroom upstairs, but we slept in the room downstairs -- no noise, no light (blackout curtains) and a really comfortable bed.
A couple blocks away is the ferry; puts you in the French Quarter in less than 10 minutes, and you can come back home and relax, away from the noise and the crowds. We walked everywhere, a wonderful path on the levy along the Mississippi with a killer view of New Orleans, a Fresh Market, Restaurants, and Bars right in Algers Point.
The owner lives next door, and was very helpful with suggestions, even offering to go with us to Frenchman Street; if my husband had not been so tired that night, we would have taken him up on it.
We will definitely consider this house again the next time we come to New Orleans
Great location but more info would be nice!
Our stay at the Guitar House was fine. The location is good and as the website says- you are close to the ferry. But it would have been nice to know the cost and hours of ferry (and that exact change is needed) in information on booking site and in the home.
There was no info provided about the home, location in writing when we got there. I assumed more info would be forthcoming nothing came. Issues about lighting and cooling would have been understood if an effort to share this info would have come. With the request for a text two hours prior to arrival, I would have assumed lights would be turned on and the house at a reasonable temp.
Finally, note price before booking. Looks like a good deal for number of people location sleeps, but with per person guest fee cost added under owner fees, cost may be double what you expected.
Andrew was busy remodeling his house next door, but still made time to attend to everything we needed, including making our morning coffee and offering a ride to dinner when Uber was not available.
Sorta funky but clean, super comfortable beds, easy access to Quarter, funny toilet adjacent to kitchen but fantastic when you need it, really friendly and accommodating host Andrew!!!
It’s a quirky property with a quirky owner/host. Great location just a 5 minute ferry ride from city
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Andy is good fun and enjoyed playing a little guitar with him. The home is quite an experience but don’t expect 5 star. Expect something different. If here in cold weather bring warm clothes. The heating is not great. A toaster and a kettle would be good too. We also felt some general info re shop locations, ferry, entertainment, the usual stuff would be helpful although Andy was generally on hand to answer any questions. Also thanks Andy for a great Bbq! Good luck with the flying machine. 🎸
We enjoyed our stay here very much! Andy was very accommodating and provided us with many useful tips. The beds were very comfortable and we loved the location, a very safe neighborhood and a short walk to the ferry, which brings you directly to the French Quarter. So convenient! Also very clean.
ATTENTION! Ferry does not take cars.
I live here. It is 19.9 miles. take airport rd I-10 east, merge right, take business district. You have to take Greater new orleans bridge. merge into right lane and take right on Gen Degaulle take right on LB Landry or Whitney. Same street. It changes names. Drive till it dead ends into Patterson. take left. Go about five blocks and it changes into one way with white lines instead of yellow. take left on Lavergne or Verret right on Pelican and I'm on he left two doors down from Confetti park.
