Overview

Photos and Description of the Algiers Point vacation house rental

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! http://gonola.com/2015/06/23/algiers-point-pretty-as-a-picture.html

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. While this is all easily accessible on foot, bicycles are available for a small fee -- a great way to see the river is by riding along the scenic Mississippi River Trail, which is just two blocks away from the house.

+ 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 additional space for either a writing desk or a top-of-the-line, raised queen airbed as needed. 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. The brand new living room furniture includes a queen-size sofa bed. 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 and directions, and for an additional fee will gladly provide tour guide services, bicycles, parcel shipping, and transportation to/from the airport and French Quarter.

MINUMUM RESERVATION NOTICE:

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

We also give tours! http://www.NOSecretsTours.com. Food, Cocktail, History, Ghost and Voodoo tours!
