About Bruce Blew

Hello! My name is Bruce. Welcome to New Orleans. I am a retired Chemical Engineer, who presently owns & operates The Junque Shop Antique Store in the Faugborg Marigny, at the base of world famous Frenchmen Street. I personally renovated my home in 2005-2006.

Bruce Blew purchased this house in 2005

Why Bruce Blew chose Algiers

This is a Raised 'Shotgun' Double built in 1929, completely renovated in 2005-2006. It is located in historic Algiers Point, the second oldest settlement in New Orleans. It was built by a lumber yard owner. The walls are 6 inches thick & reinforced diagonally. The 2006 renovation opened the home to one living area upstairs.

What makes this house unique

My home is an economical alternative to the French Quarter, and yet is just a four block walk or drive to the Algiers/Canal Street Car/Passenger Ferry. Historic Algiers Point is a quiet alternative to the fast French Quarter pace, and yet close enough to enjoy the full benefits of the French Quarter and all of New Orleans.

Lovely home, great location enabling us to experience an authentic New Orleans home and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time in the house. Everything was neat and clean. There were plenty of towels and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The location was just perfect for us. We took the ferry over to New Orleans, which was a great mode of transportation as well as a lovely experience. We also drove in to the city a few times which was an easy drive. We loved having a peaceful retreat to return to after the bustling activity of the city. Would certainly rent this home again!

Phenomenal home, communication, and service

  • 5 of 5

The owner was extremely accommodating of our large group. The home was lovely and full of character. The kids enjoyed the pocket park and playground around the corner, and the ferry ride across the river to downtown New Orleans. Very positive experience - highly recommend.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for my family to stay. It is beautifully decorated! It is conveniently located and close to the ferry. The neighborhood is so quiet and comfortable for walking around. The owner Bruce was very attentive. He even called to let us know the house would be ready early so we could go there when we arrived. I would definitely stay there again or recommend this home to anyone.

Would stay here again!

  • 4 of 5

Bruce's home is just as presented in the pictures. Nice quiet neighborhood. Very clean property with everything we needed. Booking was easy and Bruce was pleasant to work with and responded quickly every time I contacted him. There is a charming café around corner that we walked to and ate breakfast at several times during our stay. We stayed her with our adult children and it worked perfect for the six of us, plenty of room.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I don't see any criticism. So why 4 stars and not 5?

Absolutely Great

  • 5 of 5

Bruce, the owner has a fantastic home, beautifully furnished, and with all up to date appliances.

It is in a great area. Coffee shop and restaurant all within a short stroll. The convenience of having the ferry which runs every half hour to the French Quarter district was an added bonus. I strongly recommend and would stay at this home again. Bruce thanks for being a wonderful host.

My home is a four (4) block walk or drive to the Algier's Point/Canal Street Ferry. A five minute ferry ride to The base of the French Quarter leaves you by Harrah's Casino, Riverwalk Mall, Canal Mall & Cinema, and a short walk to all of the French Quarter.
