Historic Algiers Point, Minutes to French Quarter

Spacious, recently renovated apartment (1118 sq. ft.) in historic, charming Algiers Point, directly across the river from the French Quarter. Take the ferry to the Quarter during the day and return home at night to New Orleans' second-oldest neighborhood, and enjoy the charm (and quiet!) after your revelries. (See third photo for map of location.)

One of the very safest parts of New Orleans (search New Orleans Crime Map in your search engine for current map), yet close to everything.

3 bedrooms (queen bed in master, queen bed in White Bedroom, double bed in parlor-bedroom). All beds are 12" memory foam.

2 full baths (one with tub/shower, one with shower).

Full kitchen with all necessities for cooking and serving full meals, including pots and pans, mixing bowls, colander, blender, microwave, gas range and oven, etc.

50Mbps Wifi with powerful wireless router/signal that reaches throughout the entire unit.

50" Cox cable TV in living room and master bedroom (32" TV), HDTV antenna in White Bedroom (32" TV, local channels).

Central air and heat.

Washer/dryer in the unit.

Easy street parking for those with cars.

The apartment faces a beautiful park and historic church (see photo), and is a block from the local coffee shop and three blocks from a corner grocery (Opelousas Point Grocery). For more substantial grocery shopping there is a min-version of Rouses supermarket on Royal Street in the French Quarter (walking distance from the Ferry).

The Algiers Point Ferry is an approximately 1/4 mile walk, and drops you at the base of Canal Street, adjacent to the French Quarter as well as the Central Business District. (See Photo 3.) The ferry stop is also adjacent to the Riverwalk Mall, a large outlet mall along the river, and is a block from Harrah's Casino. The Central Business District is home to many of New Orleans' most celebrated restaurants, including Domenica, August, Luke, Palace Cafe, Acme Oyster House, Redfish Grill, Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse, Bon Ton Cafe, and many more.

About Josh Malfatti

I am originally from out West and have lived in New Orleans for much of the past 17 years. I am a graduate of Tulane Law School and Tulane School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine.

Josh Malfatti purchased this Apartment in 2014

Why Josh Malfatti chose Algiers Point

This is a Craftsman double-shotgun home approximately 100 years old that is typical of New Orleans neighborhoods built up during the late 19th/early 20th Centuries. Algiers Point was founded in 1719 and is the second oldest neighborhood in New Orleans area, after the French Quarter, founded 1718. Algiers Point is directly across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter. The Point (as locals refer to it) was originally the location of the area's slaughterhouses, and so was referred to as "Slaughterhouse Point" at one time. Background: Louisiana became a colony of the Kingdom of France in 1682, until it was was given to the Spanish in 1762 by Louis XV, who transferred it to his Bourbon cousin, Charles III, King of Spain. (That's where the name for Bourbon Street, the central street of the French Quarter, comes from - not because people are always getting drunk there!) It remained part of Spain until Nov. 30, 1803, at which time Spain gave it back to France under a treaty. Three weeks later, France transferred the "Territory of Orleans" (today's Louisiana) to the United States, and in early 1804, the rest of the Louisiana Purchase. Strangely, the land making up the Louisiana Purchase had no fixed western boundary at the time, so far many years there was disagreement, nearly leading to war, over exactly where it ended. Louisiana did not become a state for another 8 years, in 1812. The proposed state had to not only meet the traditional requirements for Statehood, but also had to battle anti-Catholic sentiments, the fact that the Northern states did not want another slave state in the Union, and the oddness of its legal structure based in European civil law, which was different from the British Common Law framework all other States inherited from England. It was also to be the first State west of the Mississippi, which for some reason some people objected to. We all know the Battle of New Orleans, followed by parades, bead-throwing and go-cups! :-)

What makes this Apartment unique

Historic neighborhood similar in appearance to the French Quarter (but better preserved). Short ferry ride (5 mins?) to French Quarter and downtown New Orleans. But quiet at night so you can rest!

                                                    Great duplex and the accommodations were as described. Our group would stay here again.

                                                    Great location. Easy walk to the ferry

                                                    Great location, beautiful shotgun house an easy 10 minute walk to ferry.

                                                    Robert S.

                                                    Great value property could use a good cleaning, don’t look under bed. Suitable for single family, a little less accommodating for two couples since one bedroom does not have doors

                                                    Hi Robert, thank you for your comments. The bedroom does have a sliding pocket door which provides privacy, apologies if I did not make that clear. Please let me know what needs cleaning, I want to make sure my cleaner is not missing something!

                                                    Great trip to new orleans. House was in charming older neighborhood.

                                                    Mary S.

                                                    Our group of 6 fit comfortably in this shotgun style home. We had a short walk to the ferry which ran every 15 minutes, eliminating the need to drive into the french quarters during mardi gras. It was great fun- Josh was prompt in responding to any questions we had before and during our stay. There is a need to have mis-matched coffee cups- many questions of “is this my coffee” were asked🙃�

                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                    Thank you for staying, Mary!

                                                    Great house! Lovely neighborhood!

                                                    Lynne S.Walnut Creek, California

                                                    We loved our stay at this lovely house in Algiers Point. The beds are comfortable, love the quirky art and the welcome basket was a great touch. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly and conveniently located to the ferry. We visited the local pub, pizza parlor and cafes....all were very nice. Can’t wait to return and would definitely stay again!!

                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                    Thank you for staying, Lynne, glad you and your group had fun in New Orleans!

                                                    Charming and convenient

                                                    Gary T.Richmond, Virginia

                                                    We enjoyed our stay in this charming home on Algiers Point. Josh, the owner, was very fast in responding to any questions. The home had multiple TVs and a well-stocked kitchen and is located within sight of an excellent coffee-shop/breakfast place. The ferry across to the French Quarter was a five minute walk and leaves every 30 minutes and takes just five minutes to cross the river. We really enjoyed the ability to stay in a quaint neighborhood within a few minutes of all of the activities. Would highly recommend this property!

                                                    Loved it!

                                                    Taylor D.

                                                    The place was really nice & in a neat area. There was a binder of tips, restaurants, passwords, etc that came to good use with never being in NOLA before. Josh was gracious enough to let us check out late due to our cruise ship being delayed. We had 3 adult couples in the house.

                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                    Thank you Taylor, I enjoyed having you and your group! Please visit again soon!
