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.

My Louisiana home

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a vacation home and based on this experience not my last . Bruce is outstanding to work with and his home is beautiful. We opted for the combination of the upstairs and downstairs properties. The beds in the home are plenty and the bathrooms are modern clean and spacious. My children joined in on this trip and i was worried that antique style of the home might not be for them. They loved it , they made up stories about the artwork and paintings. We celebrated Thanksgiving in Algiers point. The kitchen was perfect and had everything we needed. The grocery store was about 9 minutes by car and easy to get to. We found the cutest coffee shop on the street and it has a delightful neighborhood feel. It was nice to be on the other side of the French Quarter and take the ferry over. We enjoyed not battling with parking on that side. We shared the home as 2 families and it was nice to be able to divide into 2 homes at times. I want to say that you must be prepared for stairs if you decide to stay in this home, but if you do not like stairs I highly recommend the downstairs 2 bedroom. Bruce happened to be at the home when we arrived and his hospitality is beyond measure. Stay here !

Girls' Trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as depicted in the listing. There were 6 of us, and the house was very spacious for us. We especially appreciated having the 2 full baths as well as one half-bath. The beds were very comfortable! The walk to the ferry was enjoyable - we did that 2 days and didn't have to use our car at all those days. We also ate a couple of times at the restaurants close to the ferry; we walked from that area back to our house after dark and felt perfectly safe. Our final morning, we walked around the corner to the local coffee shop, and we had an absolutely delicious breakfast. The neighborhood is really delightful. We didn't really cook much, but the kitchen was beautiful and well-equipped. The only suggestion I would make is that it would be nice to have comfortable seating for 6 in the living room, along with a TV and DVD player. The owner was very accessible if we needed him. We had a wonderful time in NOLA, and this charming house was perfect for us!

Elegant and posh

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, classic NOLA home in a quite neighborhood. But a walk to the ferry gets you to the middle of the action. The ferry ride is only $2 a person each way. Even though we would stay past the last trip back, an uber was quick and inexpensive. It sure beat paying and hunting for parking. Would stay at this house again, was definitely well worth it. And the owner Bruce was very gracious.

Very nice and spacious house, clean and everything we needed we didn't have was available.

  • 5 of 5

Home is located in a nice neighborhood just a few minutes walk from the ferry. There is a nice coffee shop just a short walk around the corner. There is a little Park on the corner that is great for kids. The neighborhood is quite and very safe to walk around in. We had no problems getting both cars in the driveway. Great place to stay with a large group plenty of room, how the house is split you kind of have your own sides of the house and privacy.

Just What I Expected

  • 5 of 5

Great stay and everything was stated correctly as to what I can expect during the visit. Will recommend & stay again for a large gathering/group. The whole process was good, easy to set up, and enjoyable for all that attended the trip. They loved the stay and how the house was setup. The ferry ride was great and owner Bruce explained things just the way it was asked of him. Thanks for making my daughter's 21st birthday the best ever. The only thing that needs to change are the streets need to be re-paved and better parking.

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.
