Overview

Algiers Point House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

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, why would you stay anywhere else!

The distance to the foot 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 still serve the community as they have been 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

Why Gregory and Michelle chose Algiers

The neighborhood reminds one of the Oak Bluffs area on Martha's Vineyard. That was the aspect of the house we remember from when we first drove drove by it. Everything about the house felt right, and now after a lot of sweat and effort (and a little luck) we have a house that we can call our home.

What makes this house unique

Whether it is the oyster shell sidewalks, the sleepy small town feel, the ferry that can whisk you across the Mississippi to Canal St. in minutes, or the church bell that chimes every quarter hour, you will be hooked from the start. The home affords travelers the benefits of being 4-blocks from the levee walk path, and a chance to experience New Orleans on foot if desired. Enjoy this pearl of a home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Michelle and Gregory,



Thank you for opening your wonderful guest house to my brother's wedding party. He and his groomsmen had an amazing time capturing the culture and vibrance that is New Orleans, Louisiana. Your guest house made an unforgettable impression upon the entire trip, allowing us a beautiful, comfortable, and spacious place to lay our heads after the busy days (and nights, smile) on the town. We had no problems with any of the facilities within the house and were impressed from the time we set foot in it until the time we departed. Once again, I'd like to thank you, on behalf of all the groomsmen and the groom for making our stay in New Orleans an unforgettable and comfortable experience.



Sincerely, The Best Man

Great house, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely loved this place! Extremely clean, spacious and minutes from the French Quarters. I was excited to ride the ferry over the Mississippi river. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Nice location, comfortably fits a family but needs cleaning

  • 2 of 5

Let me start with the positive aspects of our stay. The location is very authentic New Orleans, and we felt safe in the neighborhood. The walk/ drive to the ferry was very doable and made travelling across the river to the French Quarter convenient. The house was very large and we were able to accomodate our family easily. Michelle and Gregory were able to make sure we had a crib set up for our infant upon arrival, which was EXTREMELY convenient for us!!

Unfortunately, the home needed to be cleaned. We were unable to use the master bathroom shower because it was covered in mold. Also, the linen closets were not well organized and extra linens and towels were haphazardly thrown in, giving the impression of being dirty. We did not use any of the dishes in the kitchen because there was a cockroach in the dishwasher upon arrival. The cooking pans and sheets were covered in grease, which was rather offputting. Also, the mattresses are rather uncomfortable and probably need replacing.

This house could be very charming, it just needs a good deep clean and a few updates. Unfortunately, it was less than our expectations based on the other reviews.

Owner's Response: If a hotel or Bed and Breakfast experience is what you desire, we encourage pursuing a reservation in one. To be clear, we do not run a hotel. This is our second home that we let out as a vacation rental to those who want to travel, visit, and experience New Orleans with the added benefit of staying in a real home rather than a conventional hotel. For this reason, we share our home and everything in it. When you are staying with us, we like to think you're staying with friends who have nothing more in mind than your comfort and enjoyment. We offer a unique experience of being able to stay in a single family home, close to the heart of New Orleans. This home gives travelers the opportunity to have a 360 degree experience of New Orleans, in Historic Algiers Point, one of the most desirable areas of the city. In the six years that we have been successfully renting our home on Home Away our guests have experienced many of the unique aspects of this town. We pride ourselves on making sure that our guests are comfortable. We make sure to speak to our guests within four hours after they check-in to confirm they have arrived safely, to be sure they have easy access to the home and it's amenities, and that they are comfortable and secure. We also ask that guests relay to us the status of the house to be sure it is fully stocked and ready for their enjoyment. We can and are happy to accommodate special requests like a crib. We know first hand that the best part of traveling can often be sharing an experience with the kids! We work closely with our cleaning team. If cleanliness issues arise such as those mentioned in this review, we make sure that they are taken care of, and if need be, we make sure that the necessary adjustments are put into practice to mitigate these problems moving forward. As always, we look forward to your stay with us!

Amazing house, perfect location! Warm & welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing! On our first day of arrival, we accidentally locked the house keys inside after locking the door/setting the alarm. Michelle and Gregory were super helpful and incredibly attentive by arranging for the house cleaner to meet with us w/ the master set of keys! The house was well furnished, dishes, towels, paper products, etc. we just did small grocery shopping! But I would definitely recommend this house to anyone! Thank you Michelle and Gregory for an amazing stay!

Truly a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and located in an old, authentic New Orleans neighborhood (Algiers Point was established in 1719). The house was spotless and everything was in good working order - appliances, tv and wi-fi. We particularly liked the high ceilings and wood floors. It was so nice to return from a day of sight-seeing and be able to relax, make dinner and stroll around the neighborhood. The area had its own unique attractions as well as convenient ferry access to the French Quarter and Garden District. The owners provided helpful information about nearby activities and venues. We will recommend highly to friends and family.
