Historic Algiers Point Neighborhood with Ferry to the French Quarter


Historic Algiers Point Neighborhood with Ferry to the French Quarter 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! 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 flat screen TV, two comfy robes, and an alarm clock. In the bathrooms, two hair dryers 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.

Local Area Info :

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. 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, Fairgrounds, 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.

    They thought of Everything!

    Angela and Mark's place was PERFECT! And they'd thought of everything; the usuals like clean, comfortable rooms, coffee, creamer, hair dryer, travel shampoos, etc, but they also included a whole lot of appreciated (and needed!) extras, like greeting us upon arrival, providing little things like ziploc snack bags, some handy pens, bottled water, a few granola bars, and plenty of other thoughtful items. One additional much-appreciated detail: super-fast wi-fi. And, for anyone who's wondering... the ferry is convenient, easy, and fast. The house is located in a really nice spot with equally easy access to both downtown/business/convention center and the quarter. Enjoy!

  • Shawn   E.

    House looks just as beautiful in person, as in pictures!! True NOAL experience!!

    We had a great stay here, Mark and Angela are more than accommodating . We will be back <3

    New Orleans weekend

    Our stay with Angela and Mark was wonderful. They were very accommodating and went out there way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The house was perfect for us. Bedrooms and living area are all nicely decorated and clean. You can tell they take pride in their home! I wouldn't hesitate to stay their again. We bought groceries and had breakfasts in the house. They had everything we needed. Angela recommended several places for us to eat... She was spot on! The neighborhood is perfect if you want to get away from the hustle of the city and the ferry ride was quite nice.

    Beautiful property

    I enjoyed my stay. Angela provided everything that my family needed to be comfortable. She was very friendly. I will definitely rent out her home again whenever we return to New Orleans.

  • Lisa   D.

    Perfect - exactly what we were looking for!!

    My husband and I are both Realtors in Dallas so we see many homes. Plus, we have rented many VRBO's. This one ranks up there tied for our favorite. I am OCD about clean and this place was spotless!! The owners, Mark and Angela, have this hospitality business down. It was as though they thought of everything they would want from a rental and used that as their baseline then added comforts on top. The beds are super comfy. They provide coffee, laundry supplies, robes, socks, really nice towels and kitchen equipment and a very nice tour of the home upon your arrival. They have little pocket sized schedules for the ferry for everyone to take, which is thoughtful. I have already sent this place to my fiends - couldn't say enough about how nice it is - loved the location. The ferry ride was a huge highlight of our 8 year old's day and it is super fast. Total find!!

    Algiers Point Gem

    We were looking for a comfortable place outside of the city bustle & we found it at Maison Touriste, located in a residential neighborhood just a short walk from the ferry building so there was no need to rent a car. The property is charming & immaculate. The kitchen is well stocked with serve ware: the appliances in good running condition. If you visit during the summer, the air conditioning & ceiling fans will keep you cool. We felt very much at home. Angela & Mark were excellent hosts. We plan to return to NOLA next year but our hearts will be broken if Maison Touriste is not available.

    Christmas 2016

    A very lovely place, close to all of NO, and easy to move around. The apartment was great with everything needed, and a great place for us to have Christmas with our family there. Mark & Angela were had everything looking beautiful, and were very helpful, and we appreciated all that they did for us. We plan on returning and certainly will recommend this wonderful spot to our friends & family.

    Loved it!!

    Great location!! Ferry ride was very convient, the house was very clean beds were very comfortable. The little bars and restaurants in Algiers Point were great! Overall we had a great experience.

  • Angela   M.

    Super clean, comfy, and perfect location!

    Love being so close to the French Quarter but then coming home to a quiet, authentic (and very friendly!) neighborhood. Can't wait to come back and stay again at Maison Touriste!

  • Janeen   H.

    Fantastic accommodations!

    This home is absolutely wonderful, clean, and roomie! If you are visiting the New Orleans area, this is definitely your place to stay. Algiers Point is directly across the river from the French Quarter. The ferry is a short 5 minute walk from this home and you get off the ferry right on Canal Street. Definitely a great place for a group of 5 or 6 to be able to stay together.

    New Orleans birthday

    wonderful stay. Place was clean and all items worked well. Owners were available and very helpful. The ferry was close so didn't need to drive to French Quarter. Would take ferry and walk to large hotel to be picked up for tours. I would stay there again without hesitation.

    A Warm & Comfortable Stay in Algiers

    My husband, sister, and brother-in-law spent a long weekend at Maison Touriste and enjoyed every minute. The owners are helpful and accommodating, even when you lock yourself out at 10pm. The house is clean and comfortable, with everything you could need for a short or long stay. Additionally, the neighborhood is friendly, relaxed, and completely charming while being a 15-20 minute walk with ferry or a 10 minute ($20) cab ride to the French Quarter. We all highly recommend this home for your stay in New Orleans and the nearby Tout de Suite Cafe. We can't wait to return in a few years!
