About Michael & Erika

Speaks: Spanish, Italian, Greek, & English

Michael & Erika purchased this condo in 1989

Why Michael & Erika chose Downtown

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. European style living within an American city.

What makes this condo unique

Perfect Historic New Orleans style living, Safety, Comfort, Spaciousness, Cleanliness, Etc. It is the entire second floor, above a quaint little furniture store.

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.

Great place to stay for a large group. There is tons of room for everyone to hang out including a large living room with bar, outdoor patio and huge game room in the back. Good location with many places within walking distance or a short car ride.

PERFECT home for visiting the French Quarter

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 guys who were visiting for a bachelor party and we couldn't have picked a better location! Plenty of room for us to all spread out yet big enough rooms for us all to be together without feeling cramped. The beds were practical and comfortable. Our favorite room was the ping pong room as it was huge with plenty of couches and definitely the place we hung out the most during our stay there. It is walking distance to the Quarter with plenty of nice cafes on the walk there. Also for those returning late night, ubers are only a 10 dollar ride. Michael and Erika were fantastic hosts! They even allowed us to store our bags under their staircase while we wandered around before our flight later in the day.

Great stay in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this awesome house in New Orleans. Located close to everything, this house very large house with plenty of sleeping space and bathrooms. It is well maintained and has a great covered porch. It is an easy walk to the French Quarter and there is also a 24/7 convinence store on the block. The owner is very accommodating, helpful, and nice. Had to switch dates and he was super nice about it!

Fantastic, MASSIVE Apartment with Everything you Need and in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here during JazzFest. It's a 15 minute walk to Frenchmen Street depending, 20-25 to French Quarter, but it's such a nice walk through beautiful houses and a cool funky bar on every corner. If you have a large group this place is totally worth it. The multiple bathrooms for a large group is CRUCIAL! Last year at jazz fest we had a group of 8 sharing one bathroom in another place - we're super glad we chose this place this year with the 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom is amazing, definitely glad that I ended up in there! Overall I highly recommend for large groups traveling to NoLa. Now that Lyft/Uber are available in NoLa (and super cheap), it makes everything even easier. The patio was a lifesaver as well.

We loved it!

Thank you for taking care of our home, we'd be happy to have y'all back for your next visit to Nola! All the best, Michael & Erika

Amazing location and space!

  • 5 of 5

The whole process of renting this space was very smooth. Michael was very supportive and easy to work with. The house itself is in a great location where you can walk almost anywhere. The house was massive and had plenty of room. The listing itself described the house very well. No issues with the property itself. There are two living rooms and the covered patio was excellent. We never felt crowded at all. There is a 24 hour grocery just down the block in case you need supplies/food. There are so many great restaurants and bars nearby. Favorites for us were Oxalis, Bacchanal, and the St. Roch Market. We walked to the French Quarter in a very short amount of time. The walk itself was very beautiful. I highly recommend this space and will likely stay here again if I am returning to NoLa with a large group. I have already recommended it to friends.

Great Place for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a pretty big group of guys for a bachelor party. The place was more than accomodating in terms of space and in close distance to all New Orleans best spots.
