Close to the action of the French Quarter but not too close!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this Algiers Point property. The short walk to the ferry was through a quaint neighborhood, and the ferry was fun for the kids. It was much better than driving. The charming house was perfect for our family of four, and our dogs. After fun days exploring NOLa, we slept very well the nights we were there. Connie is a great owner that was very responsive to email, and she left us helpful information. If we are ever back in NOLA we will for sure stay at the Lovers'/Writer's/ Saints Fan's Paradise.

Cozy house for a one night stay.

  • 5 of 5

We only needed the house for one night and most places wanted multiple days to rent. Connie was very understanding and allow us to rent for one night. The house was clean and smelled great upon arrival. I had a few questions for Connie prior to arrival. She was very prompt in her responses and answered texts, e-mail, and answered when I called. The house is located only a couple minute drive to the Algiers Ferry. We would love to stay here again on our next trip.

Wasn't sure at first....

  • 4 of 5

When first driving to the property the area is a bit questionable - however upon arrival the house is cute and on a beautiful tree lined street. Connie suggested a couple of restaurants close by that were very good!

The access to the ferry is so easy and convenient and is a cheap way to get to and from downtown.

We really enjoyed our stay and would do it again!

Algiers Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the house for a month and had a very relaxing time. The house was very spacious and warm. It's about a 15-20 minute walk to the ferry and, except for the handful of times the ferry was broken, was a quick trip into the city. Connie was very accommodating and easy to contact. There were a few bars in the neighborhood that were a lot of fun.
