We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, it had everything we needed in a perfect location. We were far enough from town to escape the chaos and close enough to enjoy everything it had to offer. Absolutely beautiful views from the decks and I personally enjoyed my afternoon siesta in the hammock below. Thanks for everything and we will be back.
We recently stayed at your beautiful home in Slidell. It was absolutely wonderful!! The home is so beautiful and comfortable. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay there and enjoyed the area very much!! We would definitely stay at the Pirate's Cove again. The home owners are also very helpful and friendly. Couldn't ask for more!!

My husband and I along with our four kids aged 11-20 loved every minute of our stay here. The house was beautiful and the views absolutely amazing. We caught blue crab every day and had a blast fishing off the deck. The perfect vacation spot!
Pirate's Cove was the perfect place for our family of six to relax and unwind between daily visits to sightsee in New Orleans.
What a beautifully comfortable and pristine home, complete with every amenity, and situated alongside the most gorgeous natural surroundings.
The owners were not only responsive, but also incredibly gracious, in all of our correspondence - and they even left the most lovely gift of white and red wine for us to enjoy! We were touched by such a heartfelt and generous welcoming.
Everyone (including our teens) LOVED fishing and crabbing off of the large lower deck. My husband, my mom, and I all enjoyed sipping coffee off of the upper deck while taking in the tranquil view of the water and delighting in spotting wildlife galore.
Invariably, someone in our family forgets an item while packing, but the owners anticipated our every need and had some sundries readily available for our use (toothbrush, body soap, hair dryer, etc.). And when my youngest child left some shoes behind, Judy kindly packed them right up and mailed them back to us in Texas. Talk about going above and beyond!
While most of our activities took place in New Orleans (visiting the National WWII museum, going on an Airboat Adventures tour, riding the streetcars, touring the Lafayette Cemetary, eating beignets at Cafe du Monde and po boys at Parkway Bakery), one of the highlights of our trip was a relaxing Sunday spent in Slidell - attending a delicious jazz brunch at nearby Palmettos on the Bayou. So beautiful!
Most evenings, we cooked in the fully-equipped kitchen (again, everything we needed was readily available - pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, paper towels, trash bags, ziplock bags, even spices). We felt so comfortable and right at home!
We've stayed at quite a few vacation rental properties, both here in the U.S. and abroad, and Pirate's Cove stands out as stellar. We feel blessed to have found this gem and can't stop talking about our amazing trip. The gracious owners, the cleanliness and comfort of the home, the fantastic location and activities on site, and the overall feeling of warmth - all of these things and more contributed to a memorable, wonderful vacation!
Pirates Cover had all the comforts of home. We had everything we needed including fishing poles,crab pots and nets. The house is beautiful inside and out. The house is situated on a canal with local wildlife. We were able to see alligators, turtles, blue crab and lizards. We couldn't have found a better place to stay....a we visited New Orleans (25 minutes away)...Biloxi (1 hour away). Thank you again for opening your beautiful home to usee!
Beautiful, homey professional decorating. All amenities of home and more. Gorgeous white fluffy towels, comfy beds, great views. Loved the fishing and crabbing gear provided. My teenagers were thrilled at the accomadations. Only negative was the traffic noise from the main street. Thanks for the wonderful vacation home. Highly recommend it
