About the property

Where Old World Charm Meets Modern Day Comfort In 1899 Home, 1100-sq-ft

One year after the French Quarter was established, Algiers Point was founded, making it the second-oldest neighborhood in the city. Maison Touriste is located in this historic area, which serves as a cherished reminder of authentic New Orleans.

+No need for a car...

Algiers Point is a leisurely 5-minute ferry ride across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter. Your accommodations are 3 short blocks from the ferry, which drops you at the foot of Canal Street and the start of the French Quarter in addition to the Convention Center, Harrah’s, and a 20-minute walk to the Superdome! Other sites (such as the Garden District, Frenchmen Street, and Metairie Cemeteries) are reachable either by a longer walk, bicycle, street car, or short cab ride. Should you prefer to drive, it is a 10-minute drive to downtown and 15-minute drive to the French Quarter during normal traffic.

+All the charm of the Quarter but in a safe, quiet neighborhood...

The picturesque Algiers Point neighborhood is unique to the history of New Orleans; there is even a walking tour that highlights this quaint village. With the specific intent of renting to tourists, your hosts chose this neighborhood because of all that it has to offer, including the short ferry ride that eliminates expensive French Quarter parking. Please take a minute to research Algiers Point and you’ll see why we chose this amazing neighborhood to offer to our guests!

The house is perfectly positioned around the corner from an amazing breakfast/lunch restaurant called Tout De Suite, several churches, parks, and a little grocery store. A few blocks away you’ll find an English-style neighborhood pub plus other bars filled with friendly locals and restaurants as well as the Mississippi River levee and ferry port to the French Quarter. The ferry ride alone offers a unique view of New Orleans only available to those lucky enough to be staying in Algiers Point.

+ Explore the history, culture, music and food of New Orleans with all the comforts and amenities of home...

After a day of shopping on Royal Street, touring the awe-inspiring WWII Museum, strolling through the Garden District, or enjoying the sights and sounds of Bourbon Street, retreat to your own 1100-square-foot living space. You’ll have an entire apartment (half of a duplex), with all of the amenities. Two bedrooms, one full bath and one half bath, a full kitchen, dining, and living room are yours. You can also enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch, or relax with a bottle of wine on the Mississippi River levee!

+Old world detail meets modern-day comfort...

Enjoy the details of an era gone by in this craftsman-style home built in 1899. Hardwood pine floors, crown molding, two fireplaces with cypress mantels (non-functioning), 12-foot ceilings, transom windows, and more.

The master bedroom boasts luxury linens and pillows on a queen-size, four-poster bed. The second bedroom includes another queen-size bed with an additional queen sized futon. Both bedrooms also have a 40' HD 1080p flatscreen TV, two comfy robes, and an alarm clock. In the bathrooms, two hairdryers and makeup mirror are available. Stainless-steel appliances and a kitchen stocked with a coffee pot, cookware, and dishes make eating meals at home a breeze. For your security and convenience, a push-button front door lock with a personalized code means no hassle of keeping track of a key.

+Your hosts:

You will be in excellent hands! We (Mark and Angela) loved playing tour guide to visiting friends and family so much that we bought a house to rent out and studied to become licensed New Orleans tour guides. We are passionate about our city, and our goal is to help you love it as much as we do. We are available for recommendations or directions. For an additional fee will gladly provide tour guide services! You can check out our tours at Food, Cocktail, History, Ghost and Voodoo tours!


All reservations must be scheduled at least one week prior to check-in.

About Mark and Angela

Mark: Born and raised New Orleanian!

In addition to learning everything we can about the history of New Orleans, we love traveling, music/theater, fitness, and food!

We also give tours! Food, Cocktail, History, Ghost and Voodoo tours!

Mark and Angela purchased this house in 2013

Why Mark and Angela chose Algiers Point

We were looking for a property that had the old New Orleanian details but was clean and comfortable at the same time. It was also extremely important to find a location that offered easy access to the French Quarter and downtown and a neighborhood that was quiet and authentically New Orleans.

Algiers Point was perfect, since the ferry to the French Quarter takes just 5 minutes and runs every 30 minutes, saving on the cost of expensive of parking. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet, which were also very important factors. Plus, just walking through the neighborhood one gets a feel of true New Orleans charm by seeing the restored homes, hearing the church bells, and receiving hellos from friendly neighbors.

What makes this house unique

We completely fell in love with the 13-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and open living area. The neighborhood, being so quiet yet so close to the French just couldn't get any better. And the restaurant around the corner serves the best muffins and breakfasts!

Plus... we also give tours! Food, Cocktail, History, Ghost and Voodoo tours!

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at Maison Touriste. Mark and Angela have thought about everything! They were so sweet and gave us lots of suggestions on places to eat and places to see. The home was much larger in person than I expected. It is conveniently located to everything in Algiers. We walked everywhere, once we parked our car we didn’t need it again until time to left. The ferry is the best way to travel to the Quarter. I highly recommend this wonderful home for your vacation!

The owner Mark was an amazing person. He was very informative and knowledgeable of the area. Mark's wife Angela the co-owner we did not talk to at all. The house was amazing and anything that you could possibly need was at your disposal. Would recommend to anyone that would visit New Orleans. You have the big city nite life right across the river, only a ferry ride away. When you are done with all the hustle and bustle of that. Take the ferry back and you have the peace and tranquility of a quiet suburban area. I have to admit. If my job didn't tie me down as much as it does. I would live in Algiers point.

A jewel of a find...

  • 5 of 5

We loved this comfortable shotgun house with it's tall ceilings and beautifully outfitted rooms. We loved getting to know our Algier's Point neighborhood and appreciated its proximity to the French Quarter where we spent our days hearing great music at the FQ Festival. We loved working with and meeting Mark who was generous with information and recommendations. We look forward to a return visit, meeting Angela, and spending more time with the personable backyard chicken!.

Quaint, safe neighborhood. House clean and well appointed. Hosts welcoming, friendly, and knowledge

  • 5 of 5

Easy peasy.

Close to ferry and local restaurants. Great to sit on the front porch and listen to the birds in the morning. Around the corner is Toute Suite for amazing breakfasts. Short walk to the river to watch boat traffic or take the ferry straight to downtown.

House is clean and comfortable, Mark and Angela welcoming and knowledgeable with great recommendations.

Wonderful weekend celebrating 60 in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

I can not possibly say enough good things about Mark and Angela and their beautiful home in Algiers Point. My sister and I treated our dad to a trip to New Orleans to celebrate his 60th birthday. Mark and Angela's rental caught my eye and I'm so glad it did. I have visited New Orleans previously, first time for my sister and dad, but had never spent time in the Algiers Point area. We were not disappointed! The neighborhood is so charming and we always felt safe walking from the house to the ferry/around town even at night. We took Mark and Angela's recommendations, getting drinks at the Crown & Anchor pub, having dinner at the Dry Dock Cafe and breakfast at Tout de Suite, all wonderful. We visited on a particularly cold and rainy weekend, so didn't use the ferry too often, but when we did it was convenient and we didn't have any trouble getting Lyfts or Ubers when needed. The house was lovely full of historic charm and very comfortable. We had everything we needed for our weekend. Also loved having Roxy the Chicken in the backyard to feed :) We really appreciated how flexible Mark and Angela were as we got to town early on Friday and they let us drop off our stuff before check in so we could get the trip started. They are both extremely warm and welcoming and very responsive. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone traveling to New Orleans no matter your age/occasion.

As advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked it. We were greeted very nicely with thorough explanations on how to use the place and enjoy our stay. The place is very comfortable, clean, and with all the amenities. There is even a chicken that you can feed. The restaurant around the corner is great. Under a 10 minute walk to the ferry. Interesting neighborhood with New Orleans charm.
