About Barbara Trolsen
Engage in southern hospitality with Rick and Barbara Trolsen in their historic Old Algier’s Pointe 1930’s craftsman cottage. Musicians will enjoy the sitting in with Rick Trolsen, trombonist/pianist/composer during his weekly Friday night gig at Old Point Bar, only a few blocks away. Rick, a gifted musician is usually performing nightly or daily. Algiers continues to be a home and haven for musicians, writers, artist, and snowbirds. A state of the art recording studio can be reserved in the neighborhood. Rick enjoys mentoring at jazz camp or hosting up-and-coming international proteges. Barbara’s creativity and candid knowledge of the New Orleans’ scene will keep you coming back. This amazing couple met and fell in love while working on the Mississippi Queen Riverboat sailing up and down the river from New Orleans to St. Paul Minnesota and have celebrated over thirty years of bliss traveling the world of music and friends and residing in New Orleans. Catch the amazing sunset, New Orleans skyline and the mighty Mississippi River with the locals on the levy directly across from Old Point Bar. You may borrow our bikes and enjoy miles of paths along the levy or walk to the historic Hubbell library. Ride the ferry over to New Orleans to the Canal Street outlet mall, Aquarium, Insectarium, Harrah’s Casino or take the streetcar to Café du Monde in the French Quarter or uptown to the Audubon Zoo, passing through the famous Garden District on St. Charles. Seldom do we endure any winter; the fire pit, porch and two decks are a charming retreat or opportunity to spur your creativity. With Rick and Barbara you will always capture a little something extra and his repertoire is much like gumbo, a blend of Western European, African, Caribbean and North and South Americas’ influences. Contact Rick or Barb to secure your vacation rental and you are guaranteed lagniappe and a gumbo of local cuisine, music, and art.

Why Barbara Trolsen chose Algiers Point
We've always dreamt of living in a quaint neighborhood just outside a big city. Well, our dream came true when we found Old Algiers. Young and old alike, family friendly, as well as plenty of "watering spots" in the neighborhood, and a venue that has music 5 night's a week, close to a recording studio with easy access to the French Quarter via a Ferry ride across the "Big Muddy Mississippi River".... Idyllic
What makes this Apartment unique
The people in our neighborhood are about as friendly as you would ever imagine! To walk up on the levy is a magical experience, giving you a picturesque view of Downtown New Orleans, the Riverboats, Cruise Ships and Freighters.

Fantastic. Couldn’t ask for better.
Wonderful home! Beautiful backyard and the most amazing hosts!! Everything you could ask for. A short walk to the ferry and you are in the French Quarter. Great neighborhood coffee shops and a tranquil neighborhood setting!
Cozy With Tons of New Orleans Flavor
The house was adorable and comfortable. It was full of New Orleans charm from the architecture to the decor. Rick and Barbara were super cool. I had a great time hanging out with them on the deck my last night. I highly recommend this house.
Perfect ! Will definitely stay here again - beautiful property and owners are awesome ❤️. Clean , well equipped, close to the ferry and a lovely walking neighborhood. Felt safe and relaxed here . Thank you for everything!
Great hospitality and charming home
This was a charming home that was perfect for our needs! Location was great, an easy walk to ferry to go into the French Quarter. The home was well maintained and the decor was interesting and very cool. The back porch is the hang out place, and the backyard and porch are just lovely. Barbara and Rick showed great hospitality, taking the time to show us around the neighborhood when we arrived, giving food recommendations, and sharing porch time. For musicians, it's a particularly cool home and great conversation, since Rick gigs in the area and is a pro. We wished our time was longer and we'd definitely be back if we're in the area.
Thoughtfull, friendly, conveniently located. Best place to stay when visiting New Orleans
Music really lives on this property. It is spacious and a great place to stay
First the residence.....comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and nice outdoor space street side or private back patio. Secondly, the location is within easy walking distance to the ferry dock and local restaurants/bars. Last but not least is the owners Barbara and Rick. They are as others have mentioned will be part of the reason we will return to "Music Lovers". Thanks for a wonderful week!
