About Bruce Johnson

Hello! My name is Bruce. Welcome to New Orleans. I personally renovated my home in 2006.

Bruce Johnson purchased this house in 2005

Why Bruce Johnson chose Algiers

The home is located in historic Algiers Point, the second oldest settlement in New Orleans.

What makes this house unique

My home is an economical alternative to the French Quarter, and yet is just a five 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 stay, great host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Bruce's house! This is the entire lower section of the house (the upper section is a separate rental) and it was very spacious and clean. We had 6 adults in our group and there was plenty of room for everyone. Had all the basics to have a comfortable stay and the neighborhood was very cute and safe.

The ferry is a very short walk away and was fast and easy to use. Our group ended up preferring to use the ferry over Uber/Lyft because it was so convenient.

Bruce was a great host and always returned my calls quickly and worked with us to make our stay as nice as possible.

We would love to stay here again in the future! Thanks Bruce!

Easy, clean and perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood.

-Great amenities - everything you could need for a week away

-Quiet safe neighborhood - for anyone unsure about where to stay try the "quiet" side on the other side of the river from the French Quarter (easy ferry crossing within 2 blocks)


-Bruce the owner was friendly and helpful.

My Louisiana Home

  • 5 of 5

You will love this 2 story home , no matter which part you stay in. The owner will walk you thru the process of configuring it to meet your needs. There are almost too many bathrooms (it is great). It is nestled in a small historic community with so much to offer on its own without even taking on the French quarter. The home is equipped with everything you need. you will want to stay here again and again . I know I plan to come here again !

First the positive, great location! It's a short walk to the ferry and an even shorter trip across the river to the French quarter. The location made it easy for us to visit without worrying about parking and driving through the French quarter. Algiers Point is a funky, historic neighborhood with great architecture and cute coffee shops, bars and restaurants.

I would love to be able to say that our visit was enjoyable, but it wasn't. When we first arrived, it was late and very dark. On first sight, the property appeared to be clean in spite of the old, worn furnishings. Over the next few days it became evident that the cleaning staff was only surface cleaning. We noticed little things such as dust flying off of the ceiling fan in the dining room when it was turned on...upon checking the rest of the fans, they were all coated with a thick layer of dust. No big deal we thought, we weren't going to be there much, only to sleep at night, we could deal with a little dust. As each day went on we realized more and more that the place was just surface clean and really needed a good scrubbing. My plan was to let Bruce know about the need to deep clean the place when we vacated so that he could have it taken care of before his next tenants arrived. Then one morning we discovered a very large, cockroach looking creature dead on the living room hadn't been there the night before. Ok, dead is least it wasn't alive, so we cleaned it up and added that to the growing list of things to relay to Bruce. The next evening, after being there for 5 nights, we discovered two large LIVE cockroach looking bugs, one crawling on the brick divider right behind my sister's head. Once we dealt with those, we started looking around more thoroughly, through cabinets and behind the sofa and other areas. We found several more dead bugs and what appeared to be mouse droppings in the cabinet under the kitchen sink. We were unable to sleep, expecting more live bugs to appear and we decided it wasn't a healthy environment to stay in. I let Bruce know that we were leaving. He offered to send in an exterminator, but because of sensitivities to pesticides we declined and asked to be reimbursed for the last two nights and the cleaning fee. It was obvious it wasn't clean beyond the surface and we didn't feel that we should be responsible for it. At first Bruce refused to refund our money, but after a few days agreed to a partial refund.

Owner's Response: I’ve been vacation renting for 5 years now and rarely do I encounter this type of renter. Someone who finds a problem, but doesn’t say anything until after they have used the rental for five days! And then want a full refund. Yes the fans were missed by the cleaning crew. Yes it was that time of year where it gets rapidly cold out and the water bugs come inside to stay warm. The droppings were from the water bugs not mice. It’s New Orleans. They also waited to do this review after I did give them a refund. Please don’t come back. They also waited until my period to review them expired.

My home is a five (5) 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.
