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!

The Owner purchased this apartment 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 apartment 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

Wonderful home & friendly neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The photos and description of this home don't really do it justice. It is very clean, well appointed and remarkably quiet both in the home and out! The views and convinience of the home are alsp amazing. You can make your coffee and gaze down at the park from the kitchen window and walk through to the living room and see the boats pass from there. It's just a 10 minute stroll down the levy trail and you're on the ferry. We highly recommend walking around the corner and through the small park to get to the steps (for the trail). It gives you the chance to speak with the neighbors and take in the sights of this hidden gem. This home gives you everything that you look for when you come to Nola with the privacy and peace you need while on vacation. The owners are highly responsive to any questions you may have and we look forward to booking for our next trip!

So Much Better than Hotel

  • 4 of 5

This was a great alternative to a hotel. There is a significant flight of stairs to get to apartment. The apartment is adequately furnished and clean. Relatively quiet-this property is located next door to the Dry Point Bar which can be a little raucous on Sat night. Easy walk to ferry to take you over to French Quarter, etc. The Algiers neighborhood is charming-good places for coffee and meals.

GREAT place to enjoy the Big Easy!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th or 5th time staying at this apartment. It is the quentessential spot to enjoy everything that NOLA has to offer! We absolutely LOVE staying here. The owners are BERY responsive and the location can’t be beat. The view is beautiful and the stroll to the ferry is awesome. It is the PERFECT location to be able to partake of New Orleans leisure and then be able to “get away” from all of craziness once you’ve had your fill for the evening.

Convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting NOLA and we had a blast! We will definitely be returning. This property was perfect for just the two of us. The neighborhood was quiet. We didn’t even hear noise from the bar on the corner next to us. We utilized the ferry which is just 3 blocks away which was nice that we didn’t have to drive while we were there.

We enjoyed our stay. Took the ferry every day to the French quarter, WWII museum, aquarium, etc. Loved the pizza parlor and cafe by ferry. Try River Fine Foods for great P.o. Boys.
