The Space

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR NEW ORLEANS "HOME AWAY FROM HOME," NOLA Cottage:

We are a neighborhood for all ages and interests, a creative detour with the convenience of location and native perspective. Historic Algiers Point is child and pet-friendly with walking paths, Confetti Children's Park, and the best views of the river and the New Orleans skyline.

HOW TO SEE THE CITY THE QUICK AND
STRESS - FREE WAY:

The Cottage is located in the crescent of the Mississippi River on historic Algiers Point. We are less than four blocks from the ferry terminal and a 5 minute boat ride across the Mississippi River,

The Canal to Algiers Point Ferry was recently listed as the world's fourth best of the top ten city boat trips by National Geographic Traveler magazine. Park your car at the Cottage and walk, bike, drive, or take the streetcars for the best views of New Orleans skyline and access to the city scape.

NEW ORLEANS ATTRACTIONS CONVENIENT FROM ALGIERS POINT

The ferry arrives at the foot of Canal Street. Board a streetcar or walk to the Convention Center, Super Dome, New Orleans Arena, and streetcar lines traversing the city. (We provide maps of all streetcar lines.) The ferry terminal at Canal Street is steps away from the French Quarter, the Aquarium of the Americas and IMAX Theatre, the Audubon Insectarium, the shops at Canal Place, the Riverwalk Mall, Harrah's Casino, as well as a busy venue of our annual French Quarter Festival at Woldenburg Park. Take the (red) Canal Streetcar and Riverfront Streetcar lines, and the (green) Saint Charles Ave Streetcar, or drive to popular and historic destinations around the city.

Leisurely walk or ride the streetcars along the river with stops at Mardi Gras World, the Convention Center, Downtown Warehouse Arts District, Canal streetcar lines, Jax Brewery, Jackson Square, the Farmer's Market, Cafe Du Monde, and Esplanade Ave to Frenchmen Street. Walk or ride to explore everything in the French Quarter and surrounding areas.

WHAT'S THIS GOING TO COST?

The ferry is free to pedestrians, bicycles, and pets. There is a $1 fee for cars traveling from Algiers Point to Canal St. There is no charge on the return trip. The hours of operation are 6:00 AM to midnight. During high demand events, such as Mardi Gras, the ferry converts to pedestrians, pets, and bicycles only. Free parking is available at the Algiers terminal as well as the cottage. Buy a day-pass to ride all streetcar lines traversing historic and popular areas of New Orleans for $3.

  • Well I just spent an entire month at the cottage. This is my second time "living here" and couldn't be more happy. Candace's hospitality is wonderful and she cares about her guests stay in making it the best possible. She is my go to host when I come to New Orleans.

  • I've stayed @ several ABnB homes and this was one of the nicest experiences I've ever had. Check-in was easy and Candace was full of helpful suggestions for my visit. The place has plenty of space for two people (using the spare bed), ample parking, and easy walking access to the ferry. From there it's easy to get to the street cars or walk to the quarter. And we even were supplied with bottled water, bacon & eggs! I highly recommend for those looking to be near, but not in the quarter.

  • My two girls and I stayed at NOLA Crescent View, Algiers Point for 5 nights at the end of May and we loved it. We arrived late evening and the weather was unseasonably cold. Candance was there to welcome us with a whole bunch of information brochures and after showing us around the apartment and sharing her knowledge on the area (which is second to none), she went off and came back with a bunch of fleeces and cardigans for us to borrow.

    The apartment is homely and spacious with lovely high ceilings. It has everything you need for your stay and the bed is super comfy.

    Candance and Val are so thoughtful, there was a box of tissues in each room, lovely fluffy towels and face cloths in the bathroom and best of all…in the fridge was bacon, eggs, butter, fresh orange juice, milk and a ton of bottled water. In the cupboard there was sugar, a regular loaf of bread, a cinnamon loaf, fresh coffee, packets of instant porridge and grits, I’m sure I’ve left something out. We wanted for nothing.

    Maybe one thing missing was a sharp knife. We cooked a couple of times and needed to cut vegetables but hey, we improvised and used the pizza cutter.

    You have access to a washing machine and tumble drier which are situated in a covered area at the side of the house.

    The area is fabulous and there are some beautiful houses. The free ferry ride over to the mainland is great way to start the day. That’s after having breakfast at Tout de Suite a lovely café a couple of blocks from the house. Not far from the café is Rosetree Blown Glass Studio and Gallery. If you’re lucky enough you will get to see a demonstration. Sadly on the day we went there were a few glitches and there were no demos that day but it was nice to look around. It’s housed in an old cinema building and the story of how they came to take over that building is really interesting.

    We would definitely return for another stay.

  • There are countless positive points to make about my stay that I don’t know where to begin, and it’s even more difficult to know where to end. Let me just say that Candance is the most welcoming and friendly host you could hope for. She strikes the perfect balance between going out of her way to make you feel truly at home; and yet is so professional by ensuring that your sense of personal space and freedom is as accommodated as you would expect from any five-star hotel. You could not ask for a better bed and breakfast.

    The accommodation itself was comfortable, clean, spacious and so well stocked with everything you would need and more; from the basics for breakfast to bottles of wine for celebration. It also has Wi-Fi for the internet, and entertainment systems.

    Candance is generous with her personal time. (email hidden), she was happy to give me the benefit of her professional insights (as a courtesy), tailored to my trip, and voluntarily gave me relevant, specific information!

    From the moment I made my reservation to the day I checked-out, Candance and Val were personable, accessible, responsive and effective; in addressing every matter in relation to my reservation and stay in New Orleans.

    Candance is so sincere and warm, while at the same time so professional that you cannot help but want to be her guest again on any future trip to New Orleans.

  • Excellent location! Easy walk to ferry to get to Quarter. Val and Candy very helpful hostesses. Yummy food in neighborhood. We didn't need to go across river to eat well!

  • We had a lovely stay at the cottage in Historic Algier’s Point. It was nice to be close to the French Quarter without actually having to stay in it since we were looking to have a PG stay in New Orleans. The ferry ride from the base of Canal Street was short and sweet. Candy & Val were fantastic hosts which made our short stay special in our epic 6-month road trip through the Southern States of the U.S. We felt at home right away, the juice, water, bacon, eggs and bread were a nice touch. We appreciated everything available to us to make us feel at home ranging from the kitchenware, linens, laundry facility (including soap), and toiletries. The wireless Internet service was great and we enjoyed a nice soak in the Victorian tub. The cottage was furnished with a New Orleans feel; the king bed was amazingly comfortable and everything was perfect for our stay – we couldn’t have asked for anything better. The wee ones loved the cottage, felt at home to explore and it was child-friendly. Confetti Park nearby was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for better hosts as we felt we were truly guests, not just a paying customer for accommodations. We highly recommend staying here and when the girls are older, we’d send them here so they can have the Mardi Gras experience in a safe place. Candy and Val, thank you for making our stay special and the girls loved both of you.

  • We had a great time! The cottage was beautiful, and our hosts were generous, communicative, and helpful.

  • We loved the house in Algiers. It was very comfortable and in a nice neighborhood. Candace and Val went out of their way to be helpful. The refrigerator was stocked with breakfast food and other goodies. They provided us with restaurant suggestions and even had the restaurant send us a glass of champagne for our anniversary! The ferry was only 3 blocks away and the ride was fun and beautiful especially at night. You can park at the ferry and ride for free! We also enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. There is a walking trail past the ferry. Awesome house and hosts. We hope to return!

  • Great apartment and very close to the Ferry to Canal Street. Clean and comfortable. Candy left us food, coffee, drinks, and a ton of bottled water. The beds were comfy; a good fit for three people, especially if two are a couple. Will definitely return in the future!

    January 2013
  • Candance and Val were absolutely wonderful, and their space was perfect. It was clean, beautiful, comfortable (literally-the bed was great!), homey, and extremely convenient to everything we wanted to do. It was the best Airbnb experience that I have had. I cannot say enough about the hosts or their space. You must stay here!
