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 Point

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.
