About Jami Dimitrios

Chris and I love New Orleans. He was born and raised here, I moved to New Orleans in 1988 from Wellington, Ohio. We have 2 wonderful children one of which was adopted locally. This home is our family home, we lived here until shortly after hurricane Katrina. It took use 5 Years to renovate and re-restore the home after the hurricane, even though we did not sustain flood we had wind damages. We chose to turn this home into a vacation home only because we love the historic feel of this home and wanted to share it with visitors of our great city. We love it!! We are very grateful that all of our guest love it too! Visit us and I know you will Love it too!! Deidra and Chris Edwards- homeowners

What makes this house unique

I know you will enjoy the architecture this home has to offer. there are 2 fireplace on the first floor and 3 on the 2nd floor which add interesting architectural element to the home. I enjoy relaxing on the back porch listening to the sounds of the steam boats whistling along the Mississippi River.

Great home for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable time, and the owners/management were completely attentive to all of our needs. There was enough space so that our group never felt crowded, and staying in Algiers Points provided a calm, serene environment for downtime, but was close enough to make it to the French Quarter in minutes.

Algiers Point

  • 5 of 5

Housing: Large enough for six grumpy old men. Room for communal gatherings and quiet time alone. Centrally located. Quiet neighborhood. Outdoor patio with covered area and even having TV within enclosed area.

Parking: One off street parking spot with plenty of safe on street parking.

Neighborhood: Quiet as noted above. 1/2 block to adult beverage store, from front porch 2 miles as the arrow flies to full service grocery store. 2 adult beverage institutions with music and 3 eateries (southern, american a pizza pie spot) with 2 spot having taps on site. All food and beverages within a 5 min walk. No hills so you can just amble along.

Transportation: Algier's Point Ferry is about 6 blocks from abode. Costing $1 for seniors, $2 or others/one way. Drops you off at Canal St. ready to jump on streetcar to see the sites. If you miss last ferry, an Uber ride home runs about $12-15 to front door. Ferry shuts down around 21:30 on weekdays and 23:30 on weekends.

Across from ferry you will find: American diner, pizzeria, and the ever needed adult beverage institution. All within 1 block

Recommendations:

Renters: Have lots of $1 for the ferry as they only take exact change. Suggest a "Jazzy pass" which can be had at any Walgreens or from street car conductor. The pass comes in 1, 3, 5 days at a cost of $3/day. A great way to see the sights.

Owners: Would be nice to have surge protector in each bedroom area to charge electronics.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a very detailed review! We will be getting the surge protectors for the bedrooms for future guest. That's a great suggestion and we appreciate all of our guest feedback! Jami

Great, comfortable house.

I stayed at the house with a group of 10 and everyone was comfortable. Easy walk to the ferry and a nice back patio were the highlights.

No Wifi

  • 1 of 5

My team of network marketing business associates and I booked this rental for our annual convention being held in New Orleans. We rely heavily on wifi as we run online businesses. We were astonished to discover there was not internet available and we would never have rented this place knowing that.

Owner's Response: We are so very sorry the wifi was not working. We were not notified til the end of the stay and did not have enough time on Saturday evening to remedy the situation. Future guest: we do have wifi. we ask that you login in to wifi upon arriving and if there are ever any questions call us right away. We strive to always provide excellent service to our guest.

Great character for an older home

  • 3 of 5

First impression of the inside of the home was not very good. It seemed very dark compared to the pictures online and there was a damp smell, but after the air was turned on for a day the smell went away. Overall we had a very good stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a review. It's so very humid in New Orleans, and with the older 120+ year old homes we have to keep the air conditioners on to keep air circulating. We ask all guest to leave a/c on when leaving the home.It helps. thank you again and I'm happy you had a good stay!
