Algiers Point House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10
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 125 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!
Non-toxic, bio-degradable cleaning methods.
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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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!
