We had a great time !!

  • 4 of 5

Andrew and his wife were welcoming and super helpful. We had a great time staying in their home while we attended a conference in New Orleans. Short walk to the ferry that gets you right into town. There’s not much in Algiers but there was a cute coffee shop and diner for breakfast. I would recommend staying here for the price and it’s convienence getting into town. I would note it is a shotgun style home so it sleeps 6, but only has one private room. The second bathroom is located in the connecting property where Andrew and his wife live. They were very gracious with sharing their space but it’s something to note before purchasing. There’s work being done around the property but you can tell how passionate Andrew is about making this space as comfortable as possible. Be sure to read the overview of the property before purchase.

Just what we expected

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly as described. Andy was an awesome host with a unique personality. We weren't looking for a standard hotel stay, we were looking for a home away from home. Andy welcomed us in after a long day of travel when we arrived and couldn't find the exact address. He carried our luggage up the stairs and made us immediately feel at home. Like Andy, the house is unique and very funky, like my friend and I are. We knew we weren't staying at a 5 star hotel, but an older shotgun home in a quiet neighborhood. We loved it. We felt safe and at home. The ferry was an easy walk, as were the restaurants and bars. We had a rental car, but were able to leave it parked for the majority of our stay. Algiers Point is truly a hidden gem. I recommend Andy's place if you are opened to an experience, not pampering. It was truly a warm, wonderful experience that I myself would do again. Fun and funky for sure.

Great area to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Algiers was a great choice for the three of us before we embarked on our cruise. The $2. ferry was a five minute walk with a five minute ride across the Mississippi to the French quarter and Bourbon St. Remember that the ferry doesn't start until 1030 am on the weekend. Wonderful Italian restaurant within walking distance and a couple of pubs we did not experience. The rental is quaint, clean with good beds. Andrew was very gracious when we didn't realize we were supposed to put the towels in the washer! He is a bit eccentric but in a good fun way. Would definitely stay again!

Not as advertised, poor communication

  • 2 of 5

The photos are not representative of the space. It is the space, but a heavily photoshopped version. There is more crowded furniture, an old couch, and a grungy fridge. The beds were okay, the shower was good; but its not like the photos.

Messages from the owner were not totally coherent, and this is the only rental place I’ve stayed where you don’t get a guide (like how to turn on the lights, if the neighborhood is safe, etc). He also claimed I hadn’t told him about my dog which he found out about only when she barked; my first sentence to him prior to booking included my dogs species and size.

There’s no heat. Old house - I get it. And we happened to be there during record low temperatures; but there was a window heater and 3 space heaters that weren’t really enough.

If you’re considering booking, read all of the reviews first. Others have also found it to not be as advertised.

Not necessarily about the house, but the ferry station at night is super shady. It’s cheap, fast, in a great location, and runs on a consistent schedule, but dark and secluded and you walk between groups of homeless individuals on the city-side of the river.

Owner's Response: Well Jennifer never mentioned her dog she's upset because she had to pay pet fee. She never texted when she arrived the light were on for them because they arrived in the evening. We live next door, I spoke with her father outside several times very nice gentleman he stated they were use to colder weather there is ample heat for the house. The beds are tempreprdic mattress the bathroom is completely remodeled. The refrigerator is newer complete with ice maker. Also no mention of the 55 in curve t.v. or antique furniture. The whole reason for her bad review is because of her pet fee. Please read reviews they are all good .
