Beautiful, spacious historic home with a New Orleans feel. Master bath with jacuzzi tub, 2 bedrooms upstairs with en suite bath, downstairs guest room with bath, private back deck to grill and enjoy a drink. TV and WiFi. Algiers Point is a quiet mostly residential neighborhood with several bars and restaurants. It's just a ten-minute ferry ride to Canal Street where you can easily walk to the French Quarter or catch the streetcar into the CBD, Garden District and Uptown.
We both grew up in the South and had visited New Orleans several times. When we had an opportunity to move here, we jumped at it! We love being able to amble down to the ferry and walk to Cafe' du Monde or catch a band on Frenchman's Street.
Beth Napier purchased this house in 2011
When we moved to New Orleans, we weren't quite sure where we wanted to buy a home, so we rented a house on Magazine Street and began exploring the city. We loved being so close to everything, but it was a bit busy for us. One day, we took the Algiers Ferry over to the Dry Dock Cafe' and fell in love. We can rock on the front porch under hundred-year-old oak trees and in ten minutes, be in the Quarter or the Marigny. If we want to go Uptown or to the Garden District, we just hop a streetcar. There's always a party, a parade, music, food! And, on our side of the river, the five-mile long walking and bicycle path on the top of the levee with a view of downtown is unbeatable.
I fell in love with shining hardwood floors, twelve-foot ceilings, broad crown molding and the wide-open dining-kitchen-living space downstairs. The view of the Mississippi River Bridge out the upstairs bedroom window is amazing. The back deck is very peaceful and a great place to watch fireworks from across the river!
We enjoyed our stay the the Napier house. We had 3 couples, so each was able to have a bedroom and bath. All the rooms were very comfortable and well decorated. Everything we needed was available in the house. All were impressed with the number of towels provided for use. The weather was good, so we enjoyed sitting out on the front porch. The ferry ride to the quarter was very nice, just about a 15 min walk. Beth was very friendly and helpful. She had a few items that we requested in the house when we got there. Thanks for a great time.
The host and house were a great choice for our group of 6 visiting New Orleans. The host was available prior to and during our stay to answer questions and provide recommendations. She even drove us back and forth to the store upon arrival so we could buy items for the weekend. The house was spacious and the neighborhood was quiet. The location requires either a mile or so walk to the ferry to get into the French Quarter or relying on New Orleans taxicabs (which we found to be some of the most unreliable in the country, the city needs Uber). All in, we had a great time and would stay here again.
House is beautiful. Rooms are all big and the kitchen was stocked thanks to Beth. Beth is a great host. She offered recommendations and invited us to local events. We had a great time!
We love our stay at the Napier's House. It was big and beautiful with plenty of amenities. Every room was nicely decorated, neat, very spacious. Although it was our first visit to New Orleans, Beth did an excellent job navigating us around town. We wouldn't have felt comfortable going to some of the places without her suggestions. Overall we had a pleasant and comfy experience and would definitely stay there again.
I can't say enough about how great of an experience we had working with Beth and staying at her place! My friends and I couldn't get over how nice of a house it was; and as a large group of college students coming down for NYE and a football game, I really appreciated her not writing us off as a bunch of rowdy kids. The house was well stocked and taken care of and she even offered to go to the grocery store for us. Beth was also readily available via text and phone call if I had any questions about where to go and what to do. She gave us the phone number for her favorite cab driver, Miss Betty, who we grew to love as well when we were out too late to catch the ferry. When we could catch the ferry, it was just a 10-15 minute walk from the house and drops you off right down town, a short walk to the French Quarter. This place is a great option if you want more space than a hotel room, but still want to be close to the city and have no idea what to do in New Orleans, because Beth has all the connections! Although I came down with a group of college students, I think it would be great for any kind of group.
The house is spacious and elegant. The four bedrooms are nicely spaced from each other. Beth gave us great tips for enjoying our stay, and we loved them all. There's a delightful breakfast place a short walk away where they had live music one of the mornings we were here. The ferry landing is also convenient, and we loved riding over to the French quarter for just $2 each. We're all glad we took in the swamp tour south of New Orleans. It was a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle in the Big Easy.
This home is located in historic Algiers point within easy walking distance to Algiers Ferry -- in ten minutes you can be across the river and three blocks from the French Quarter restaurants, bars and fun!
