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 Point
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.

Great experience! Wonderful rental!!
Thoroughly enjoyed staying here for a week long vacation with our ‘tribe’. Reviews and ratings say it all. Very clean, well-stocked home with a lot of character. Had great interaction and communication with owner. Thank you Bruce for a great stay!
I’m so glad your “tribe” enjoyed my home. LOL. Please come back.
The House was wonderful and just like the pictures
My family all enjoyed the house and being able to stay together. Bruce was easy to reach if we had any questions. The walk to the fairy in the heat was a little harder for the older folks but was a wonderful experience. FYI, the house has two thermostats for the air conditioner, we didn't find the one behind the door until our second night. Thanks Bruce your place is lovely.
This is a great house in a lovely neighborhood. and it has some impressive antique pieces. There was plenty of room for my family of 4, just be aware that one bedroom is only accessed by going through either of the other ones. The kitchen is modern with nice appliances. This house is surrounded by other renovated homes, and the area is quiet and safe. It was a quick walk to the ferry ($2 exact change for each passenger), which deposits you right at the end of the Canal streetcar line (get a daily pass for $3 from the driver if you will be riding them all day). If you forget anything, there is a Wal-Mart about 4 miles away. Bruce was quite responsive and had everything ready for us.
Wonderful rental. Highly recommend. Convenient, spacious, and beautiful.
We stayed here for a family wedding. The house was spacious and well-stocked. Bruce allowed us to rent the top and bottom units which gave us 3.5 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms, and lots of privacy for everyone. The top and bottom units are totally separate, but can be accessed by a back indoor stairwell. Each unit has a full kitchen, living area, and laundry. We were within easy walking distance of restaurants and bars. A short walk to the ferry and a quick scenic ride across the Mississippi put us at the edge of all the French Quarter and CBD have to offer. All shopping needs (groceries, drugstore, Walmart, etc.) could be met with a 10 minute drive. A B&B a block away and several other rentals across the street made this a great place for a family wedding. Everyone in the area is incredibly friendly and Bruce is very accommodating. We loved the property and hope to visit it again.
Our stay was amazing here. The house was very clean and the property owner is very nice and helpful. The ferry was not a far walk at all and just $2 a person to ride to get to Bourbon st. The ferry closes at 11 so had to take cab/uber back and it was around $20-$25. Driving yourself to French quarter, bourbon st, and all around that area wasn't bad either took maybe 15-20 min. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again if we ever visit NOLA again! Thank you Bruce for the amazing vacation and beautiful place to stay!
You are so welcome. I’m glad you had a great stay.

Wow! Thank you so much. Please come back.
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.
