Weekend in New Orleans for the Rock N Roll Marathon

  • of 5
We booked this house to stay for the weekend of RnR marathon, however it was unseasonably cold in nola (around 30 degrees)!! Upon arrival, we loved the house and it had everything we needed except adequate heat. We ended up only staying one night due to freezing temps in the house even with one furnace and 2 space heaters. Connie went above and beyond and offered to refund our money! She was so great and easy to get in contact with! She was so great to work with. If the weather had been warmer this house would have been perfect. It's about a 12 minute walk to the ferry, and the ferry drops you off very close to the French Quarter.

A gem in Algiers - but beware the forecast!

  • 4 of 5
My mother and I chose to stay in this lovely home rather than a hotel for a more local experience with extra space and charm. Booking was a snap and Connie was very easy to work with and very prompt in answering questions.

Upon arrival we were thrilled with the home - the decor is appropriate and comfortable and everything seemed in working order.

A couple of suggestions following our stay of almost one week:

If it is cold outside - the house is COLDER. We were subjected to a cold snap and while one furnace worked occasionally the other never did. A small space heater tried it's best but nothing could compete with mother nature and the lack of insulation. Connie was very solicitous in offering to send someone to look at the heater and suggested we purchase another electric unit which she would reimburse us for - the heater seemed to be working - until it wasn't - and the local stores were cleaned out of space heaters. Clearly this is not a problem unique to this home! We froze and were not warm again until we got back to the northeast!

Some electrical outlets in the house are wonky and could use some tlc. The tub, while lovely, is high and a could pose a challenge for older, less flexible folks to get in and out of easily.

The hot water is HOT - a note to that effect would be appreciated.

A more detailed note about the house and the area in general would be a nice addition - an Algiers map - a list of local places, closest grocery etc.

The towels could use replacing - many are stained and tattered. And some extra hooks in the bathroom would provide a place to hang them for the next day's use.

Park in the driveway, not on the street. Our rental car parked on the street was involved in a hit and run - too much Nola cheer probably - but it was a drag and we regret having left the car there rather than in the driveway.

Just a few little changes and some attention to these details could make this home even cozier and more welcoming for guests. That said we would certainly consider staying here again - AFTER we check the forecast!

It's a sweet home - Connie was an absolute delight to work with and, despite our challenges, we enjoyed our time at this little gem of a residence.

Our family had the pleasure of renting this cottage in historic algiers point! Writhing walking distance of the ferry and several local bars/food establishments, one felt the best of both worlds in visiting NOLA. We can't wait to stay in this well appointed shotgun style cottage. Connie was a pleasure to work with!

Shotgun House in Algiers Point

  • 4 of 5
Great house for our girls weekend! Cute interior - lots of happy colors which matched our excitement about our weekend in New Orleans! Very clean! Think it must have just been repainted because none of the wall-hangings were hanging on the walls - all just set against the walls. Glad we liked cats - there were tons that hung around the front porch. Would definitely recommend the place.

This was the perfect girls' getaway! The little "shotgun" house was in a lovely area of old Algiers-close to the ferry. The home was very comfortable. Do not miss Tout de Suite café- in the neighborhood.

The home is an adorable 2 bedroom classic style home in the historic district of Algiers. It was a perfect stay for our family of 5. House seems very spacious with high ceilings maybe 14'. Stove, fridge, microwave, washer, and dryer! Everything we needed. Owner was easy to work with, prompt with responses to inquiries, and very nice! Would definaty stay Again! The house has window air units but stayed cool and comfortable even in august heat!
