About Michael & Erika

Speaks: Spanish, Italian, Greek, & English

Michael & Erika purchased this condo in 1989

Why Michael & Erika chose Faubourg Marigny

Location, Location! We just love to hear church bells and the paddlewheel horns while sitting on the patio. We enjoy the convenience of walking to French Market, French Quarter, Frenchmen St., shopping, restaurants, coffee shops & bars. You are close enough and yet away from all the hustle & bustle of the F.Q. If you don't feel like walking there is a bus stop right across our street; the bus goes straight to the French Quarter. There's also the nostalgic street cars you can hop onto at Elysian Fields and St. Claude or the one across from the French Market. European style living within an American city.

What makes this condo unique

Perfect Historic New Orleans style living, Safety, Comfort, Spaciousness, Cleanliness, Etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for everything! We all had a great time and loved the house. The house made it possible for us all to be together & have fun. We had a group from Atlanta and Chicago staying here. We all loved it!! We came to run the New Orleans Marathon, but was able to do so much more.

Best place to stay in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Maison De La Royal is a wonderful place to stay in The Marigny - a great neighborhood to enjoy in New Orleans. The home is very spacious and has everything you need to enjoy your stay in New Orleans within close proximity to the Quarter. There is a market on the same block which is perfect for grabbing anything you might need. Royal St runs all the way through the quarter which makes it very easy to get where you want to go whether walking or catching a ride. We walked back from dinner several times and enjoyed the sights and local flavor. Michael is a pleasure to work with and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I can't recommend this place enough! We would definitely stay at Maison De La Royal again! Thanks again Michael.

Spacious rental with character, charm and amenities located near the fun

  • 5 of 5

A short walk to French Market and all the downtown sights makes this a great place for families and friends to call home for a visit to New Orleans.

The decor is beautiful and clean. Everything in the house is well-maintained. Michael, the owner, was attentive and available throughout the stay, but not a single issue popped up while we were here.

A 24/7 market just downstairs makes this a great place to call home base if you want to cook a few meals or gather sundries before venturing off.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Michael was nothing short of accommodating for my stay. From letting me know things to do, restaurants to eat at, and bars to check out. In communicating, he was quick to reply to any questions I had and made planning a stay for 9 guys a breeze! The house was extremely clean and perfect for our bachelor party of 9 guys. The penthouse is in close proximity to bourbon street/French quarter and made ubering fairly cheap given the time of day. It is a great place to hang out if you feel like not going out, especially given the size of it. If I ever come back to New Orleans, I will definitely be contacting Michael again. Thanks for everything!

Where you want to be staying in New Orelans

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to host a bunch of guests in the fabulous city of New Orleans, this is the spot to stay. Ask any local where to see good live music and have a good night out on the town and they will tell you to head over to Frenchman Street. This awesome home is conveniently located only a few blocks from this highly entertaining street as well as walking distance to some of the best up and coming bars, restaurants and galleries in the city. The home itself has all the amenities you need and was quite comfortable accommodating our big party. The hosts are incredibly friendly, easy to work with and responsive as well.
