About Us

Empress Properties evolved from our love for travel and design. We love to buy, fix up and furnish homes for our own portfolio and for our clients.

Over the past few years, we have created a collection of comfortable, charming and chic rentals in the Bywater neighborhood in New Orleans and in Manhattan Beach, California.

Think of staying with us – or if you have vacation properties that need prepared for rental or made ready for your own enjoyment.
