We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to New Orleans! Kevin and Wendy had great insider advice on what to do in the city, and where to eat. The location is perfect, close enough to go have fun in the crazy French Quarter, but on the quiet side of the river so we slept great! Breakfast was amazing! Kevin gets the best... More

Enjoy the charm of historic Algiers Point and get a taste of local life ..... walk two blocks to the ferry and you're on Canal Street in no time!

As a Canadian from Calgary coming to New Orleans for the first time in November, I was completely charmed by Historic Algiers Point. I had wanted to step back in time and I could almost believe that I was living back when life was simpler and the pace was slower. Staying at the House of the Rising Sun, was a... More

We've been visiting New Orleans for years but have always stayed in the French Quarter. This time, we wanted to experience the West Bank. After our stay at the House of the Rising Sun, we're ready to move to Algiers. Our hosts, Kevin and Wendy, couldn't have been more charming, and everyone we met in the community went out of... More

We wanted to avoid hotels and so glad we did :-) this place is just like home from home. Kevin and Wendy make it feel just like you're staying with friends, the rooms are beautifully appointed and the day started with a lovely breakfast. The trip on the ferry provides lovely views of New Orleans.

We had a great stay here. The property is in an ideal spot for access to the heart of New Orleans, yet in a lovely quiet tree lined street. We walked everywhere, each morning accessing downtown New Orleans by ferry across the Misssissipi was a great start to the day. Kevin is a friendly informative flexible host, the house is... More

The room I stayed in was clean and quiet and Kevin was accommodating to my needs. The breakfast was a combination of fresh fruit, yogurt and granola and fresh croissants. The location is wonderful, a quiet neighborhood with quick access via ferry to the heart of New Orleans.

We stayed at this B&B for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. Kevin is the perfect host and made us feel immediately at home. He provided lovely, healthy breakfasts which were most welcoming and the rooms were very comfortable. Algiers Point is a very pretty and safe neighbourhood - ideal to return to after a hectic day in NOLA. We... More

The House of the Rising Sun is a bed and breakfast that excels in both of its banner purposes. The bedroom was beautifully appointed, comfortable, and a delightful place of respite and rest after busy days associated with pulling off and attending a wedding. The adjoining bathroom to my bedroom was appointed in a matching color scheme and included basic... More
