Back in the middle of 2010, when we started advertising this property on Homeaway.com, there were less than fifty Homeaway.com properties in the New Orleans area. Now, that number has increased to over six hundred and fifty, and we're still standing strong with over 130 satisfied customers!
This centrally air-conditioned, spacious 3-bedroom home has all the charm of a historic home, with all the comfort and convenience of a modern space. Two full bathrooms, light filled and fully outfitted, you may wonder why you ever stayed in a hotel!
The distance to the 'fun side' of Canal St. is only about 10 blocks if using the Algiers Point ferry. No car is needed to reach all major downtown attractions! The 5-minute ferry ride brings you to the Canal St. landing, on the Riverwalk!

Location and Attractions - Minutes Away: This fully renovated home is located in the Historic Algiers Point Neighborhood. Distance to the French Quarter is only about 10 blocks if going by the ferry. No car is needed to get to all the major downtown attractions. The Quarters are an easy and scenic stroll from the house. The 5-minute ferry ride will put you at the Canal St. landing, on the Riverwalk. You’ll be next to the Quarters and a stone's throw away from Harrah's Casino, the French Market, Aquarium of the Americas, and over a dozen world-class eating establishments such as Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, Ruth's Chris Steak House, the Besh Steakhouse, Morton's, Hard Rock Café, Café Maspero, Crescent City Brewhouse, and Gallatoires on Bourbon Street to name just a few.
From there, you may ride one of New Orleans' historic streetcars to City Park, the Garden District, and Uptown.
About Algiers Point: Nestled in the bend of the river which gave the Crescent City its name lies the quiet neighborhood of Algiers Point. It is filled with turn-of-the-century homes dating from the 1840s and churches, schools, corner groceries, restaurants, and neighborhood businesses which serve the community as they have for years.
After almost 300 years of history, Algiers Point is one of the premier historic neighborhoods in the city. Established just after the French Quarter, Algiers Point is geographically isolated from the rest of the city of New Orleans by the natural barrier of the Mississippi River, and this has served to ensure its development as a village within a city.
Its quiet 19th century small town atmosphere is far removed from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter located directly across the Mississippi River. The Central Business District is only a ferry ride away making for one of the easiest, most leisurely commutes to work.
Getting Around: Easy access via Algiers Point Ferry to:
• Historic French Quarter
• Downtown New Orleans
• Harrah’s Casino
• River Walk
• Aquarium of The Americas
• Canal Street shopping district
• St. Charles Streetcar
This was an email sent to the owners by one of our recent guests:
We found the house to be very nice. Very clean and comfortable and well appointed (could use a corkscrew, and a toaster would be great). I appreciated that you had two rooms with twin beds since our party included 5 women rather than couples. The flexibilty of the sleeping arrangements is very handy and not always easy to find. The living area is so nice and big that it was really comfortable for all of us to hang out in after a day of sightseeing or conference attending. Since we didn't all know each other prior to the trip I didn't know how much hanging out we'd actually do, but I think the house just helped everyone to feel comfortable and we had a really good time.
I'm sure you know this already, but that rooster is a problem. We laughed about it a lot but honestly I still feel like I'm not caught up on my sleep! I was in the sunroom - with earplugs - and it greatly disturbed my sleep, but I am a fairly light sleeper. My friend and I went for spa treatments at one of the big hotels and the woman who did my pedicure is a neighbor of yours. She told me her version of the rooster story - that it's been hanging around since right after Katrina. I assume there must be a neighborhood sentimental attachment to it since no one has um . . . made it disappear!
Anyway, other than the rooster, I think you have a great vacation house. I enjoyed taking the ferry every day and we enjoyed exploring New Orleans. Thank you!
Les Palmes House is wonderful!! The house is very nicely decorated and furnished. It has lots of room, a great kitchen and very nice, spacious bathrooms. It's in a quiet neighborhood and very convenient to all New Orleans attractions. It's just a few blocks from a short ferry ride to Canal St. and easy walks (or street car rides) to the French Quarter, the Warehouse District, etc.
The property overall was nice (inside of home is very nice, back deck is deteriorating and can be dangerous) and the neighborhood the property is located in was charming. However, the owners failed to reveal that there is a apartment complex (rental property) located across from the home that houses what I would define as vagrants. Immediately upon our arrival, one of the apartment's residents began to hang around the home. He made us feel uneasy, but we attempted to be friendly. The second night of our stay, the house was broken into and robbed while we were out. Nothing from the home was taken (property of home owner), but personal property of guests were (cash, clothes, electronics) to the tune of over $3,000 dollars in property. Common sense told us that the individual who kept frequenting the property had something to do with the robbery. I contacted the local authorities and was content in waiting out the investigation and chalking the loss up to an unfortunate learning experience (there are cameras in the area that most likely caught the incident). However, the behavior of the owners of this property has lead me to write a review and file a complaint with homestay. It appeared that immediately, the owner through his actions attempted to lay blame on our party and accuse the party of somehow staging a crime without directly accusing us. Despite the fact that I was the one reaching out to him, concerned about figuring out who committed the robbery (even took a picture of the local that kept hanging around and provided it to owner and authorities). He was very rude, condescending, and kept asking me the same questions over and over again in an effort to somehow catch me in a lie or punch holes in what actually happened. Needless to say, I eventually became upset, which led to him identifying that as possible further evidence that I or my party were somehow guilty. The owner was adamant that the contract signed protected him from any obligations in regards to our stolen property (which I accepted) and it became an issue over my security deposit as well as reimbursement for the night that we did not stay in the home (we relocated as we didn't feel safe). Maybe the property is better suited for families as they would most likely stay in the home and not go out late nights, but please be weary of the individuals that live in the area as well as the quality of character of the owner. In being transparent to future possible guests, we should have listened t
Really nice space in a quaint neighborhood. The area is mixed in terms of well-maintained and down-trodden and driving to the location was through an area that looked sketchy. But we had no problems or concerns walking around both to the ferry and in general. Distance to the ferry is a bit of a walk but enjoyable. The ferry doesn't run very late so you will have to cab it back sometimes [~$20 with tip]. However, when the ferry runs it is very convenient. Plan for some extra travel time by either car, cab or ferry, but it wasn't much of a burden.
Location was clean and spacious, lots of beds and accessories. We didn't do cooking more than morning coffee so I can't say I explored the kitchenware much. There is a dining room that we never touched. Also a TV which we didn't use but the WiFi got a workout. :)
I did something stupid regarding the rental unit forgetting key documents at home and left an email for the owners from the airport. They responded immediately and arranged for everything to be fixed before I even got on the ground in New Orleans. Awesome customer service.
This is a lovely home. The owners have been great to work with and we highly recommend this home.
This is a beautifully renovated and decorated vacation rental in Historic Algiers Point.
We spent our 2012 Thanksgiving holiday here and it was fabulous. This place has all the comforts of home and more. We had a wonderful trip down memory lane while reconnecting with our native city New Orleans.
Many thanks to Gregory and Michelle for providing all the information to make our stay very pleasant and enjoyable.
Will we choose this home again...DEFINITELY!
The house was beautiful. there was plenty of room for everyone. No troble reaching the ferry or canal street. Gregory and Michelle left plent of information on visiting the many attractions of New orleans. We also had friends that live ther so they showed us around and were also a great help. As for rooster we saw him up close and caused no problems, he just a part of our wonderful stay
