About The Owner

We have been married for 18 wonderful years. I am an interior decorator and enjoy playing tennis. When Ron is not busy with work, he enjoys playing golf. When we're not enjoying spending time in the French Quarter, going to festivals and eating the best food in the world, we love spending time at the beach with our 3 rescue dogs!

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Algiers Point

This house is located in the 2nd oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. Algiers Point is a very quaint, village like neighborhood. Many local artist and musicians live in Algiers Point because of its proximity directly across the Mississippi river from French Quarter. We are located 4 blocks from the Algiers pedestrian Ferry. Algiers Point is a favorite area to shoot movies among Hollywood South, it's no surprise to see movie trucks line the streets or to see an A list star in a local restaurant or bar here.

What makes this house unique

It's proximity to pedestrian ferry and the location just across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter. We are located directly across the street from the levee. The perfect spot to watch fireworks for NYE or listen to live music on Wednesdays, in the summer, for the free concert series "Wednesday at The Point" Every Wednesday in June, July and August from 6-9pm

Gorgeous house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This house was decorated so adorably, beds were comfy and it was in a great location. Only small complaint was the air conditioning. It didn’t seem to cool off until really late at night. Other than that, everything was perfect. Would 10/10 recommend.

Quaint, quiet, and clean

  • 5 of 5

Cute house located in a very quiet neighborhood. There is a bar right next door, but this is really a blessing more than a hindrance. The bar was a quiet place and seemed to wind down by 11 or so even over the weekend. No issues sleeping next to it.

House is located a convenient walking distance from the Algiers Ferry and the levee walking trail is great! We visited the Rosetree Glass Studio and several local restaurants (Dry Dock is delicious!) and will plan on returning.

The only negatives are that the driveway is very narrow, and the bathroom location. The drive is fine if you are in a car or even mid-size SUV. However the full size truck we brought in was a tight fit. Like most houses in the area, there is a very linear set up inside. Living room goes to BR #1, to BR #2, to Kitchen, to Bathroom. This is only inconvenient if people are sleeping, changing, etc. but really isn't a huge issue.

Would absolutely recommend the house and definitely the neighborhood to a friend! The entirety of New Orleans and especially Algiers Point is very pet friendly as well!

Solid stay if you are interested in being near downtown NOLA, without having to drive downtown.

  • 4 of 5

Located at Algiers Point which is a ferry ride from NOLA. It is next to Old Point Bar, a legendary spot and deserving of the legend. The unit is a "shotgun" house. You walk into the living room, through the first bedroom, through the second bedroom into the kitchen, dining, bathroom. All without a hallway. It works fine if you don't mind the person in the first bedroom walking through the second to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. It was very clean and comfortable, with one exception. The A/C air handler is in the kitchen, which was very cool and comfortable. Unfortunately, the fan is unable to push the air all the way to the living room, which was not cool. The first bedroom was barely comfortable, the second was comfortable. Not sure what can be done. Otherwise, I'd give this unit a 5. The process was simple, loved the location and the neighborhood is unique, but safe.

Inside: clean, nicely furnished. Outside: not so much.

  • 3 of 5

I must state at the beginning that this home is fine for a younger couple or two. We are in our sixties and felt that the neighborhood needs a clean up. The small back yard has been forsaken; it was trashy, dirty, and in need of a major overhaul. The excellent view of six portable toilets out of the kitchen window was as unappealing as it can get. The dumpster for the saloon next door was about 15 feet from our front door. It is appears that Algiers Point is gentrifying or so it seems. We might come back when it is much further along. We also felt that the security needs an upgrade. The back door had a door chain and the button on the door knob to lock the back door. One could force their way into the back of the house unseen with little effort. Within the area of Algiers Point are two very poor neighborhoods listed as two of the ten worst in New Orleans: Fischer Development Neighborhood and Whitney. They may be on the rise. I will come back when they have risen. To get to the French Quarter one must either drive to it (there is little or no parking) or take a ferry which is very near the house. Unfortunately we were disappointed to find that the ferry closes at nine P.M. Not very convenient if you are going to spend an evening in the Quarter. We stayed one out of the four nights and left to stay in the Quarter. Again, for the younger and more adventurous, this place is fine.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location was great. Short walk to the ferry and small local restaurants. Two doors down from a corner pub. 2 dollars gets you on the ferry and dropped right at the top of canal st.
