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.
just treat it like it is yours!
The host was really great and the cottage was so charming, just as described. The location is right in the middle of the Algiers Point Historic district. We had a wonderful time.
The house was great. she gave us the name of the cab driver named Betty. She picked us up every morning and took us wherever we need to go. About 15 minute cab ride to the convention center. The neighbors are great and the porch was fantastic. Much bigger than I expected from the pictures. Connie was great and very easy to get a hold of. I would definitely stay there again!
We had the best time staying at Connie's! She was extremely responsive and welcoming. The house is adorably decorated and very cozy. We had six people, and there was plenty of room for us. Her tips about the ferry and the close places to eat were spot on. We did a good bit of walking around the neighborhood and the French Quarter and can definitively say that (especially) on a beautiful day, the cottage is a prime location for a getaway to New Orleans! We will certainly be back!
This past week, I went with three friends to spend the holiday weekend in NOLA, and this house was the perfect place for our group to stay. Connie was very quick to respond to all of our inquiries and made the entire process easy to complete. There was a lot of space in the house, even for just having two bedrooms, so we could have easily fit in more people as well. The areas leading up to the house was slightly sketchy at times, but that's New Orleans for you! And the neighborhood the house was actually located in was perfectly safe and cute-looking. We did utilize the ferry ($2 one way, exact change required) to get to the French Quarter, and ate at the local café Tout de Suite (I would have eaten there every day, it was that adorable- they had live music which was awesome, but no alcohol). Anyway, if you want to stay at a place that is not right in the middle of the craziness of Bourbon St, then this is an ideal location, and Connie is a great host!

We loved our stay in Algiers Point, great location convenient to New Orleans without feeling part of the hustle bustle.
Lovely house, felt bigger inside than I'd expected from photos. Tasteful decoration full of charm. Suited us as a family. If privacy is super important to you and you are traveling with aquaintences only you might feel challenged, but I think it's worth it for the delightful place that it is.
Finally, Connie could not have been more helpful. This was our first airbnb experience, and Connie filled me with confidence.
i live in memphis full time and nola whenever i can!! i am a single mom who loves to read and travel whilst sipping on a good glass of wine.
there is nothing i love more than sitting on the front porch of my nola cottage with a cup of coffee and a good book early in the southern morning.
