Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

We ended our 2 week family vacation in the adorable house in NOLA for 4 days. The house was extremely clean and very comfortable we traveled with our family and 2 dogs there was plenty of room for 5 adults 1 child and 2 dogs. The fenced in back yard was perfect for the fur babies. Old Algiers is a beautiful neighborhood we felt safe the whole time we were there. The owner Connie gave us great info on super restaurants in the area as well as info on the French quarter. I would definitely stay here again if we ever make it bac to NOLA. Thanks for a great experience Connie!

Absolutely charming !!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying I came down to New Orleans with some of my friends to celebrate my birthday. This was I'll first Mardi Gras an I couldn't of made a better decision than to stay in this vacation home! We absolutely loved the New Orleans charm that the home provided. The Neighborhood was very quite an the people were very friendly. The location is so convenient to the French quarters with a 10 minute walk to the ferry. We were able to park I'll rental an just take the ferry it puts you mins from Bourbon an Canal street! Also it's plenty of great food an a mall less than 3 miles away from the house. The owner Connie was so professional an helpful an personally came to welcome us to the city her hospitality was beyond imageable. I would recommend the property to anyone who coming to New Orleans an want a bang for your buck. I will be staying here again in the future!

Spending Thanksgiving with family in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was attractive to us because of its size & the fenced in yard. The home is well kept for its age and it is well stocked. The neighborhood is a "MUST SEE." Algiers is very peaceful and beautiful. The locals are very friendly. We spent more time in Algiers than downtown New Orleans. The house is a "shotgun house" but so cute in how it is decorated and it is in a safe location. The beds were very comfortable (plenty of linens) & the house was clean. Our favorite place was on the front porch, relaxing in the chairs, having our coffee or other beverages. There were six of us and there was plenty of room for all of us in the cottage. I would recommend this cottage to anyone anytime.

Also, there is ample parking. Anytime I reached out to Connie, she responded timely. Thanks Connie for making your cottage available to us to spend Thanksgiving together; Your place was perfect for us!

Cute little pet friendly house close to Ferry to Bourbon st

  • 4 of 5

Arriving we weren't sure how safe the area was but once we got to the house it seemed ok. Great place to stay with pets, fenced in yard. The place was clean but could use some updating. The host was easily accessible and very nice. The ferry was quick and fun for our kids to ride. It does stop running at 11:45 so if you want to party late in the city it's going to cost you about 20+ bucks to Uber back. All in all it was perfect for our long weekend because we only were there to sleep and let our dogs out.

Close to the action of the French Quarter but not too close!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this Algiers Point property. The short walk to the ferry was through a quaint neighborhood, and the ferry was fun for the kids. It was much better than driving. The charming house was perfect for our family of four, and our dogs. After fun days exploring NOLa, we slept very well the nights we were there. Connie is a great owner that was very responsive to email, and she left us helpful information. If we are ever back in NOLA we will for sure stay at the Lovers'/Writer's/ Saints Fan's Paradise.
