We are two blocks from Ferry to get you across the River. Ferry ride has very nice view of New Orleans. Nice shot of Saint Louis Cathedral. It is nice when the sun is setting.

Second oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. 200 years old! The houses in the neighborhood are awesome. Houses have lots of character. With a childrens park three doors down and two other parks in the neighborhood, makes this the best neighborhood you can book. There are three really cool Bars. Old Point Bar is the best with live Music. There are three Restaurants, Tout De Sweets is good for breakfast and Lunch. Dry Dock is very close to Ferry for Lunch or dinner. It is also a Bar. Appetite Repair Shop is open Thursday thru Saturday on Vallette and Alix. Get there early, he runs out of food quickly.

The bus can pick you up and drop you off one block across the street. 'The Owl' is the one you take late at night. Ferry hours are 7:15 leaves Algiers Point and 6:15 is the last one that leave promptly from the Central Business District. So get there before 6:15. It is the last one so you don't want to miss it! If you do you can take the bus. It picks you up at the corner of Canal and Historical Basin Street. 5045392861 Andy, Run towels and dry departing. Dogs must be on leash and in kennel not on furniture. Cigarette butts go in trash not in yard! Text, I do not answer phone because of telemarketing.

Why Andrew Craig chose Algiers

Loud and weird

  • 3 of 5

Beds were amazingly comfortable and house was clean and very close to the ferry. Aside from that, the internet was unreliable, there's only very basic TV (no DVD or real cable), no bathroom fan, limited street parking. Shares wall with other unit that had incredibly noisy neighbors, shares backyard with neighbors and eccentric nosy owner. He was also doing construction the whole time so I woke up to that every morning.

If it's just a place to sleep and shower it's mostly fine, but if you're looking for a relaxing place to unwind I'd stay elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Ask guest if it was ok painters paint front of house. They said it was ok. Now they complain about it? It is complete now. Its ok to have neighbors in my back yard. Plenty of parking. There is on and off street parking.

Our trip was very enjoyable. Andy was a good host. Beds were very comfortable, living area needs more seating for guests. Kitchen was missing a few items but overall our accommodations were comfortable! Lots of hot water for showering, laundry etc. The ferry was very close and dropped us off on the other side right at the base of everything. Close to the French Market, casino and French Quarter. The ferry ride itself was less than 10 minutes. Algiers Point has local restaurants and bars. The coffee house was getting ready to open, this will be a good addition to the area. The historical houses made for very enjoyable scenery walk. Algiers, is the perfect way to enjoy the city life but get away from it all at the end of the day!

Thanks Andy

Andy was extremely welcoming and personable to all of my friends and I. He was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We even locked ourselves out and he was available to help us with no problem. I def would stay here again!

Not what we were expecting

  • 2 of 5

The outside was cluttered, the inside was not very clean. The fridgerator inside was broken and owner knew about it, the kitchen did not have a big frying pan, just a wok, the only spatula we had was really floppy. we opened the bathroom cupboards and it had black mold growing in it, not good. On the upside it is located in a nice neighborhood and conveniently located near the ferry.

Big Easy

We totally enjoyed our stay. The house was in good area, and I have to say was spotless. The owner was very helpful and friendly. If we go back to New Orleans again we will be staying with Home away.

Ferry does not take cars! If you google map it, it will take you to the ferry. Because it is the closest to my house.

Tout Du Suites, Crown and Anchor English Pub on Pelican and Bouny St. Dry Dock Cafe and live music at Old Point Bar! Holy Name of Mary Church around the block. Imagine Yoga on Opelousas.
