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

Absolutely Amazing!!!

This experience was everything I hoped it would be. The rental was absolutely beautiful and is exactly how it was described. The owner is fantastic and I could not have had a better experience. Saving for my next trip now and I would choose anywhere else.

A-1

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home. It’s a perfect location to watch the Mississippi River and relax. The ferry is easily accessible to arrive in the French 1/4 within minutes. Everything about staying here is A-1. It’s a home away from home.

Loved my stay and would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this home for 5 days/5 nights and were really happy with the location. We really wanted to enjoy our stay in NOLA but knowing how crazy it can get we wanted to stay in a quieter area. We bought the 5 day unlimited RTA pass so that we could ride the ferry (as well as buses & street cars) for $30 and didn't have to worry about always carrying exact change. Being able to cross the Mississippi every morning into busy downtown and later cross it at night into a more quiet neighborhood was refreshing. The bar next door does play music at night but if you are inside the house you really can't hear it and they are friendly if you stop in. I would stay in this home again because the price was right, the home was clean, and the location is ideal.

Right next door to bar.

  • 3 of 5

The bar could get a little noisy at night but usually not to bad. Only one opening window with a screen in the whole house, no air conditioning. It gets a bit hot in the house if outside temperature goes over 75 degree. Dirty floors but otherwise ok. You do need to understand the "shotgun" style of floor plan, from the living room in the front of the house you need to walk through both bedrooms to access the kitchen and bath. We were all family so no big deal. Good restaurants close by but the only store within walking distance was a "C" store with limited choices. The ferry ran with no particular schedule and we could not access an accurate listing of hours of operation, nothing is posted at the terminals. Very cool neighborhood, great area of NOLA.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed through Christmas and really enjoyed the house. It was very cold while we were here and there was no short supply of hot water and a great heater! It was nice to have such a big kitchen to have Christmas dinner for our family who were in town for the holidays.

The bar next door did get a little loud a few nights with live music and that made it hard for some of us to sleep. The house layout was something to get used to (you have to walk through each bedroom to get to the kitchen/bathroom). It would have been nice to know that in advance, but really wasn’t an issue.

I’d definitely recommend this place and would stay there again.
