If you enjoy nature and want to experience the uniqueness of life on the bayou, this is the perfect vacation home. Located on seven acres this rustic home on a cypress swamp. It is a prime area for birding and wild life. You can fish from your back porch. The style of the house is reminiscent of the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, complete with a rainwater-fed pond underneath the deck that adjoins the two separate wings of the lower level. It is located on seven acres with natural foliage with a wooden pathway to the dock that is on Bayou Liberty. The front of the cedar home is covered in vines and faces the pool, the back of the home faces the bayou. Lake Pontchartrain is a short boat ride away where speckled trout is the desired catch of the day. Bring your boat and use the boat house, or use the flat boat to troll down the canal which leads to the bayou.
The home is located on two levels. The lower level is handicap accessible via a ramp . The lower level is divided into two wings by the walkway over the pond and stairs to the upper level. There is a Corinthian wind chime hanging from the stairs near a large fountain in the pond.
The north wing has one queen sized bedroom with a private balcony, and a small second bedroom with a double bed. This wing also has a full bathroom. The south wing has one queen size bed, living room with a fireplace, large handicap accessible bathroom and fully furnished kitchen on the glass porch. This level has the quickest access to the pool. The pool is surrounded by hedges on one side and the home on the other. The water pool is shaded by an oak tree, and remains cool throughout the summer. Each level has a washer and dryer.
The spacious master bedroom on the upper level has a king size memory foam bed, walk in closet,and full sized bathroom. and private balcony overlooking the bayou.This bedroom also has a 42' HDTV with most of the movie channels.
The living room has three sofas (one a futon), a wood burning fireplace, a 61 inch HDTV, and a large balcony overlooking the bayou, perfect for sunsets, or coffee in the mornings. It is also a great place from which to birdwatch. Blue Herons, Egrets, Osprey, woodpeckers, eagles, and migratory ducks are just a few of the birds which have been sited here. On this level, all the windows face the bayou. Adjacent to the kitchen and living room is a formal dining room.
The home is close enough to visit New Orleans or just stay at home and enjoy the serenity of the bayou and pool. It is the perfect place for family reunions or getting together with a few friends..girls getaway...or a relaxing rendezvous for a fishing trip. For larger parties, please see the listing for the Marsh House which is just down the road, or just down the bayou depending on how you travel.
I'd just like to say that your place was better than advertised. The house was beautiful and felt like a home and not like one of those austere condos. The bayou is exquisite and the views are beyond compare. I stayed there with my family and my brother and his family and it was perfect with the two kitchens and living areas. I only wish that it had been warm enough to go swimming.....but we'll definitely be back....thanks again.
This is absolutely the perfect property to rent if you have a large family or group! There are 3 separate sleeping spaces so no one got in each other's way, everything was well setup and we had a great time! Great fishing right behind the house and we were perfectly located close to lots of things to do. Beth is a doll and helped us get checked in and gave us a tour. The only thing we would have changed was the weather so we could have used the pool as well. Do yourself a favor and choose this property!
Two families of four enjoyed this beautiful house, both for its comfort and access to nature and its great location. We enjoyed time relaxing on the decks, enjoy a bayou view, paddling canoes and kayaks, cooking in two kitchens, playing games and sitting around the fire pit. We also enjoyed quick access to New Orleans, Abita Springs, Covington, etc. for great food, shopping and sight seeing. I would stay here again. Definitely.
This home is very unique. It sits right up next to the bayou and gives you a great setting for your stay. The home is divided up into 3 separate living areas while still offering enough space to come together. The pool was large and provided enough room for a big group to cool off. If you're looking for something different and private this is your place. Owner Beth is great and will take care of anything you need.
This is the second visit to this house. We love it here. Private, great pool, site seeing haven, also a friendly gator in the bayou. The only thing missing is a chef. Private areas in this unique house. If we could only get our guys to come. Can fish off the deck. This place has it all. So sad to hear of the loss of John. What a loss to Slidell. Beth stepped up to the plate.
The layout of the house was unique and beautiful. The spaces were separated, yet together with plenty of room to gather together. We fell in love with Allie and Gator, who would swim full speed down the swamp, excited to see us return when we were out exploring away from the property. They kept their distance. The turtles were so cute, too.
The property felt private. The natural habitat made it pleasant to soak up the beauty, while sitting on the various decks. Our family chose this home as our first choice and we were very pleased with the results.
Imagine a place that's easily accessible from the road, yet immediately offers the feel of the wilderness out back. We could not have asked for a better equipped, more spacious, or homey place to stay. There are plenty of nooks and crannies in the country-style house, so everyone can relax and do their own thing, but there are also great group gathering spots. One of the day's pleasures was stepping off the back porch/dock into a kayak for a sunlight paddle. The deck off the second floor living room is perfect for bird and alligator watching. This location is ideal for exploring both the New Orleans area as well as the Mississippi shore. To top it off, John is a delightful owner.
