About the property

Retreat to historic Algier's Point after an exciting day in the Quarter

From the exposed brick fireplace to the 12 foot tall ceilings in the parlor and dining room, this beautiful house has been thoughtfully renovated to accommodate a group of up to six people (and two cars!).

About Gabriel

I have lived in New Orleans since 2009 after having been visiting every couple of months for the last 2 years. I finally settled down and bought a home in 2012 after having explored many neighborhoods.

I love New Orleans and have worked in hospitality for many years here, I'm so happy to have started my family in this amazing city that I now call home.

Gabriel purchased this house in 2014

Guestbook comments from the manager

Absolutely loved staying here. It was spacious, super clean, and beautiful inside. Gabriel made us feel like we were staying in a 5 star resort! The neighbourhood was quite and safe. Everything was within walking distance from the house, and the ferry was very convenient to cross the river to get downtown. I will be staying here the next time I'm in New Orleans! If your considering this house take it! You won't be disappointed.

Lots of space. Close to ferry.

  • 4 of 5

The house was much bigger than expected and very nicely decorated. The only issues we had were the extremely worn out and uncomfortable pillows and the carpet definitely needs a good cleaning. The side yard was very nice and Gabriel was super sweet and helpful each time we spoke.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Collette, and thanks so much for staying with us, we appreciate it and hope you'll come back and stay with us again. I would like to let future renters know that I have replaced the pillows for the King bed and the Queen bed, so this is no longer a problem. Unfortunately the carpet has shown some wear and tear with so many guests. We have decided to replace it, new carpet will be installed in the next couple of week. thanks!

Beautiful home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for the 5 of us, three bedrooms and 3 baths and perfect location.

We took the ferry to French Quarter so we didn't have to look for parking. Every thing you need is provided, plus some extras. I highly recommend it!

Great times

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well kept. Very nice decor loved the high ceilings. Nice bathrooms, hot water. Kitchen was well equipped everything we needed to cook from morning til night! Ferry runs every 30 minutes to French Quarter and is $2 one way or buy a pass to use for trolley, bus and ferry. Nice to leave all of the chaos at night. Drive way to park your car. Nice restaurant and bars within walking distance.

Better than imagined. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

  • 5 of 5

Gabriel was so responsive and the home was more than the pictures portrayed. It was comfortable and accommodating. Amenities exceeded expectations. Accessible to local cafes, grocery stores, transit and entertainment. The bar has been set very high for other properties! I will be booking again!

Fort Stockton, TX

Lap of luxury in a mature city.

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the house was spotless and nicely decorated. Friendly in atmosphere and located not far from the ferry but also within easy walking distance to interesting stores and cafe's. All the homes in Algiers are as individualistic as the residents but open and friendly as well which really helped to make our stay even more enjoyable. Maison du Mauve is a new take on a old design of a Shotgun home. It may look small on the front but that is an illusion overcome by the spaciousness of the accommodations. With an expansive living room front possessing an overstuffed and comfortable couch leads into a small dining room table and a central fireplace. A full sized kitchen with modern appliances including an ice maker and a narrow long hallway leading to the two downstairs bedrooms and baths. Then the house shows you the secret- a second floor with a master bedroom/bathtub and a closet larger than most efficiency apartments. Romantic and charming the house was always a welcome sight after a long day/night of touring New Orleans and environs. The ease of contacting Gabriel, the manager was an added bonus. A small courtyard in the back with a porch leading from the back downstairs bedroom made sitting outside in privacy very easy. The noises of the big city muted by the proximity of the neighboring houses with privacy fences. Quiet and peaceful.

Washer and Dryer and A/C that keeps all of it cool in the summer heat of NOLA. Needless to say we loved the house, Algiers, New Orleans and all the great food and bars we visited. Stay in Algiers, the safest neighborhood around New Orleans, and enjoy the comfort and hospitality that only Maison du Mauve can give you.
