Easter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to enjoy time with family. We were comfortable and had all we needed in the house for cooking, and just relaxing. Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us.

Very comfortable and had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The Jacques were so welcoming and accommodating. Best trip yet! We went swimming and fishing off the pier, caught crabs and watched the alligators from the dock across the street, ate way too much seafood and hung out on the downstairs patio all week. The house has a great location, secluded but close to everything. The house has everything you need and more and the Jacques were very informative for local information. I would come back in a heartbeat! The next VRBO is going to be hard pressed to compete!

An Incredible Home on the Water

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (total of 6 people) just spent four days here and it was exceptional. We spent the majority of our time at the end of the pier in the sun during the day, and on the porch during the evenings. Being such a short drive (~30 mins) to New Orleans we went back a few days to enjoy some food and music. A great trip overall, thank you Andree!

Owner's Response: Nick, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed celebrating your Mom’s birthday at the lake. The proximity to New Orleans really does make it easy to go back and forth. You and your family were perfect guests and I hope you decide to visit again some day. Thanks for the lovely review! —Andree

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for the holidays. The pictures are very close to the real thing; only very small changes in the bedrooms. The open living room floor plan was very warm and inviting. We hosted Xmas dinner and everyone enjoyed the home and location! The porches were well equipped with great outdoor seating. Parking available for 10 cars easily. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, spoons, forks, and all the cooking utensils that you could need. There is even a very large boiling pot (you will only need to get a propane tank). We actually fried a turkey in it! Very large side by side sub zero fridge/freezer in the kitchen and an additional fridge in the lower level. Bathrooms stocked with plenty of good quality towels (hand, face, and bath). Owners were attentive and took our feedback on a few constructive items. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Location was close to Nola for visiting favorite sites and restaurants. We had Thanksgiving here and there were plenty of grocery stores and fresh seafood nearby. Most importantly, the views and activities on the lake in the back and the bayou in the front, made our stay fantastic. The décor of the house down to the linens was above expectation. There wasn’t a single thing you could need in the kitchen that wasn’t available. I really can’t say enough good about our stay here. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

Beautiful house on the lake with easy access to New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

We were at the Lakefront home for 10 days in May. The house is spacious, well decorated and very confortable. Nothing is missing. New Orleans is 30 minutes away. The sunset is awesome on the deck. We had a great time, enjoyed both the house and the city. The owner is easily available for assistance. We recommend without any hesitation, this wonderful place.

Only six miles from the New Orleans line (just across a bridge over Lake Pontchartrain), yet worlds away. Beautiful lakefront property with 300 foot pier on lake side and expansive marsh views with a great variety of wildlife on the other side. Home located just 2 miles from groceries, drugstores, restaurants, coffee shops,

seafood markets, etc. in the town of Slidell.
