this doll house cottage is located in algier's point...an historic neighborhood just a quick, scenic ferry ride (or 15 minute cab ride) from the quarter.
old moss oak trees line the streets of this eclectic, local new orleans neighborhood.
the cottage is an old shotgun house with two bedrooms (but can sleep 5 or 6), two parlor rooms and the original claw foot tub! it has a fenced back yard that is perfect for your favorite pet. the kitchen truly feels like a doll house kitchen.
this cottage is perfect for relaxing after traipsing through the french quarter...regardless of whether you traipsed during the day or during the night!
the dry dock cafe is a local, great bar/restaurant where you can be with the natives. you never know the topic of conversation unless the saints are playing!
truly a taste of new orleans, but with a local feel!
there is plenty of parking…both in the driveway and on the street in front of the house.
the neighborhood has the old, quaint, eclectic new orleans feel, primarily because the residents there are mostly born and bred nola folk! it is dog and stroller friendly.
algier's point is a registered historic neighborhood with lots of rich history.
this neighborhood is very walk and/or bike friendly. the ferry, which can take you over to the french quarter in about 8 minutes ) is only about 5 blocks from the house. the french quarter is also accessible by cab (about 15 minutes and $20), or by easy driving.
We had a very good stay in this apartment: Connie has been very helpful, always responded messages/calls, the house was clean, fully furnished, and very quiet.
The house was absolutely lovely. It was super cozy and felt like home. It was located in a quaint little neighborhood in Algiers and was minutes away from everywhere we needed to go. There was lots of great local shopping and eateries, and our hostess was happy to recommend several local restaurants and sightseeing stops. The house was beautifully decorated, spacious, and clean. There were five of us and we all slept comfortably and had plenty of space to ourselves. The beds were beyond comfortable and the sheets were luxuriously soft. The complimentary soaps in the bathroom were a nice touch. There was even an extra hair dryer! The kitchen had plenty of utensils and it was easy to prepare meals at home. I adored all the personal touches including plenty of games, some great family movies, and plenty of wonderfully selected reading material. I read the copy of Alice in Wonderland that was in my room! Connie was beyond polite, warm, and accomodating. I have zero complaints and would be quick to recommend the Doll House Cottage to anyone looking for a home away from home in New Orleans.
The cottage was delightful and sweet, and Connie was a great and responsive host. The neighborhood was a little bit run down and industrial, and not a place that invites much walking and exploring, though admittedly our stay was short and we did not look around too much.
If traveling with a larger group, keep in mind that the house is "shotgun style" so you enter in the living area in the front of the house, and then need to walk through both bedrooms to get to the kitchen and bathroom in the back of the house. For a couple, a young family, or a couple of close friends who are willing to drive to explore NOLA, I would highly recommend this sweet cottage as a quiet, comfortable place to retreat to at the end of the day.
A beautiful old house set in a very safe neighborhood the owner was very easy to get ahold of. Had a bit of trouble with the door unlocking but was taken care of in no time would definitely go back in a heartbeat.
The doll house is adorable, very fun & funky just like New Orleans. I chose the house based on its proximity to my brother's house and the fact that it was pet friendly. It is definitely an old house, a charming true shotgun house with vintage furniture and appliances. I would recommend this place in warmer months, as the furnace in the back of the house was broken and it was about 45 degrees when we arrived. Would recommend adding some heavier blankets, as I slept in sweats and a snow hat. Once we had the front furnace on for a few hours it warmed up. All in all, I felt the price was a bit high, but I can't argue -- not a huge selection in that area.
The Doll house was great for us... Quiet, safe, roomy. A little cold in January.... But to be expected I think. I'd stay again.
The dollhouse was great. Much bigger than it looked in the photos. Pink ouija board was a nice touch. Good place for close friendly friends or family who are already used to sharing a bathroom. Kitchen could use an island for more work space. Laundry facilities were great. High ceilings, comfy furiture and beds, fun decor. Nice place!
Sweet little shotgun house with vibrant colors and great decor. Like many other older homes, it did have a musty smell when we first arrived- but after running the air/ fans and burning incense it was pretty much eliminated. Also, after the first night there wasn't any hot water and we had to take cold showers. Most likely will be fixed before the next guest. Connie was sweet and apologetic when the cable was unavailable on the television, and responded quickly to our inquiries. Great location! Loved taking the ferry to the French quarter, and liked the live oaks lining the street. Thanks for hosting, Connie!
