About Beth Napier

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

Why Beth Napier chose New Orleans

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

It's home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (12 people, ranging form ages 14-65) stayed in this beautiful home the week of the 4th and were very comfortable. With a group that large staying for a week I expected it to be a little tight, however, the home is so spacious that was not an issue. We were all impressed with how well the home has been cared for, decorated, and the amount of space. When you walk into the home you instantly feel at ease and like you're at home. From the comfortable seating and bedding, to the personal touches throughout the home of photos from important moments, books and other memorabilia, you know you're in a place that people have lived in and experience life. Each bedroom has a different feel and interesting artwork, but they all have the common theme of southern comfort. And I have to mention that there are 3 full bathrooms that have excellent water pressure and kept consistent heated water (I just knew that would be a problem with 12 people staying in an old home, but it was NOT). Ms. Beth (the home owner) is very friendly and warm and her home reflects her personality. She checked-in with us on an almost a daily basis, just to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, which we did! There were plenty of clean, good quality towels, paper goods, and other essentials that are sometimes forgotten when packing. She was also very helpful with suggestions for things to do and with directions around the city and made sure we knew that she was available and accessible should we have any needs. Our only complaint is that there is one TV in the whole house. We were out seeing the city most of each day so it wasn't a huge deal for us, but it helped that there is Wi-fi available so you can watch programs from other devices. If you are hesitant in deciding whether to stay in this home or a hotel, please do yourself a favor and stay here, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Ms. Beth for opening your home to us, we can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay and when we return to NOLA we will be sure to look you up.

A gorgeous and quiet home

  • 5 of 5

Our Jazzfest group loved staying in Algiers. While we never got to experience the ferry, the Mississippi bridge crossing added interest each day! The home is beautifully appointed with comfortable beds. A porch and back deck add to the charm.

Celebrating a special occasion with best friends.....

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, until the second we left, we made memories never to forget. We did not have a car by choice and were able to walk to the Algiers Point Ferry for transportation across the river. The neighborhood was delightful. It felt like we were part of a different time period. Love, love, loved it. Our hosts were awesome. On our first night there, they suggested a local pub for dinner and drinks, took us there and joined us for the first of many great times in the Big Easy. We celebrated a birthday for my friend and wanted a "King Cake". Beth went searching for the special cake and didn't stop until she found it for us! So grateful for such a positive experience. Can't wait to go back. Too much to do in one trip. Will definitely be going back to Napier house. The perfect place. Thank you Beth and Denny!

Fantastic Jazz Fest Weekend

  • 5 of 5

this home was a very delightful surprise. It looks better than the photos! and all the creature comforts one could want were there. There were 8 women and we all had a lovely time. I think the front porch rocking chairs were the favorite place to unwind after a busy day in the French Quarter or at Jazz Fest.

We did not have a car during our 4 day stay. Between the ferry and using Uber cars we had no trouble getting around. Beth has provided many suggestions that helped to make our trip stress-free! Thank you!

Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time. There were 10 of us, 6 adults, 4 children (boys) ages 12, 6, and twin 3 years old. The house was spacious enough to were no one got on each other's nerves. The weather dampened our stay, literally, as we were out each time the evening storms came through. Nice to come home to a place that feels like home, warm and cozy. Twins called it Gradma and Pa's new house. Ferry was a nice walk from the house to go over to Riverwalk area. Unfortunately the ferry broke down during our stay, but they ran a bus over so we still did not have to drive. Really had a nice stay. Beth was available to answer all questions. Thank you very much and if we make the trip again I would not hesitate to visit the Napier House again. Thanks Beth.

Excellent stay at Napier House

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 people staying at the house. We were in New Orleans to present at a trade show at the Convention Center. The location was perfect, literally right across the river from the convention center. Our commute was only 10-15 minutes even in rush hour traffic. The home was very comfortable with plenty of room for our group to spread out. The home was nicely decorated, and Beth, the owner was very helpful with questions we had as we arrived. Beth contacted me a few weeks before we arrived and we were able to clear up all the details well before we arrived. We had a very successful show and enjoyed our stay. New Orleans is a great town to visit and Napier House is a excellent place to stay.
