About Bruce Blew

Hello! My name is Bruce. Welcome to New Orleans. I am a retired Chemical Engineer, who presently owns & operates The Junque Shop Antique Store in the Faugborg Marigny, at the base of world famous Frenchmen Street. I personally renovated my home in 2005-2006.

Bruce Blew purchased this house in 2005

Why Bruce Blew chose Algiers Point

This is a Raised 'Shotgun' Double built in 1929, completely renovated in 2005-2006. It is located in historic Algiers Point, the second oldest settlement in New Orleans. It was built by a lumber yard owner. The walls are 6 inches thick & reinforced diagonally. The 2006 renovation opened the home to one living area upstairs.

What makes this house unique

My home is an economical alternative to the French Quarter, and yet is just a four block walk or drive to the Algiers/Canal Street Car/Passenger Ferry. Historic Algiers Point is a quiet alternative to the fast French Quarter pace, and yet close enough to enjoy the full benefits of the French Quarter and all of New Orleans.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing here. The house was very clean and the property owner is very nice and helpful. The ferry was not a far walk at all and just $2 a person to ride to get to Bourbon st. The ferry closes at 11 so had to take cab/uber back and it was around $20-$25. Driving yourself to French quarter, bourbon st, and all around that area wasn't bad either took maybe 15-20 min. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again if we ever visit NOLA again! Thank you Bruce for the amazing vacation and beautiful place to stay!

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a lovely neighborhood. and it has some impressive antique pieces. There was plenty of room for my family of 4, just be aware that one bedroom is only accessed by going through either of the other ones. The kitchen is modern with nice appliances. This house is surrounded by other renovated homes, and the area is quiet and safe. It was a quick walk to the ferry ($2 exact change for each passenger), which deposits you right at the end of the Canal streetcar line (get a daily pass for $3 from the driver if you will be riding them all day). If you forget anything, there is a Wal-Mart about 4 miles away. Bruce was quite responsive and had everything ready for us.

Wonderful rental. Highly recommend. Convenient, spacious, and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family wedding. The house was spacious and well-stocked. Bruce allowed us to rent the top and bottom units which gave us 3.5 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms, and lots of privacy for everyone. The top and bottom units are totally separate, but can be accessed by a back indoor stairwell. Each unit has a full kitchen, living area, and laundry. We were within easy walking distance of restaurants and bars. A short walk to the ferry and a quick scenic ride across the Mississippi put us at the edge of all the French Quarter and CBD have to offer. All shopping needs (groceries, drugstore, Walmart, etc.) could be met with a 10 minute drive. A B&B a block away and several other rentals across the street made this a great place for a family wedding. Everyone in the area is incredibly friendly and Bruce is very accommodating. We loved the property and hope to visit it again.

Beautiful home with antique furnishings

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for five nights in April and loved this home. It is walking distance to the ferry and the off-street parking is great! The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors were really nice. We did encounter a spirit that opened a closet door once and opened the french doors twice. The spirit is friendly and stopped when I told it to stop. When we come back to New Orleans we will want to stay here again.

My home is a four (4) block walk or drive to the Algier's Point/Canal Street Ferry. A five minute ferry ride to The base of the French Quarter leaves you by Harrah's Casino, Riverwalk Mall, Canal Mall & Cinema, and a short walk to all of the French Quarter.
