About the property


Clean and Comfortable, Great location, relaxing.

FOR FULL DETAILS see my personal web site www.richarddevelopment.com


Back yard is the largest section of beach in the center of the island.

Super easy beach access, able to pull wagons, strollers or drive golf carts.

We have captured a unique ambience of old times so you can enjoy family and friends while relaxing on swings, cooking, drinking, playing card, kids on the beach making sand castle, swimming, fishing or crabbing.

UPSTAIRS: The camp is very clean, well maintained, comfortable, fully outfitted kitchen from spoons to large stainless pots and pans, gas cook top, full size refrigerator/freezer, microwave oven, etc. Flat screen TV with DVD and VCR, so bring your favorite movies. New Central air conditioning and heat, all ceramic tile flooring. Has 2 bedrooms that sleep 4 in each room (2 full and 6 twin size beds, bunk bed style) and 1 full bath. The other half of the camp is the kitchen den open floor plan with a panoramic view of the beach and gulf.

Breath taking views of the gulf with shrimp boats, porpoises swimming, seagulls, fishing boats and of course sun rise and sun sets. You can watch family and friends on the beach from the upper deck. Please bring your own beach towels, we do not provide.

DOWNSTAIRS: is where most of the activities are enjoyed, bottom floor is decked off the ground, there are swings, picnic table, food prep counter top, fishing cleaning station, large kitchen sink, all the boiling, frying and BBQ equipment needed to enjoy friends and family. A large storage shed full of items for your use and to store your fishing gear.

A half bath is located downstairs for your convenience. Covered parking space is also provided in case of weather conditions.

Large back yard to play games and other activities. Beach access is convenient with a wide brick/sand road that takes you directly to the largest section of beach on the island. At night, you don't want to miss chasing hermit crabs (touloulou) on the beach, so bring your flash lights, all ages can enjoy this sport. Camp fires on the beach will surely bring up old pirate stories of Jean and Pierre Laffite, Grand Terre, Louis Chighizola (Nez Coupe') and the Battle of New Orleans.

Our location is in the center of the island, slow traffic, snow ball stand across the street and within walking distance of restaurants and clubs.

We have many repeat clients continually saying the same thing about the Beach House.

"The beach, surf fishing, crabbing, sand castles, playing cards, eating and being together as a family... awesome, but having to leave is the worst feeling".

Ideal for a family get together, birthday, anniversaries, and of course fishing trips.

Awesome, the camp really captured the ambience our Grand Isle vacation.

Cooking and hanging out on the downstairs was ideal

Loved the big beach area and able to drive our golf cart directly onto the beach

What a great place to stay, and right on the beach. Fully furnished, BBQ pit, covered deck and a deck to get some sun with a view of the water. Although in a great location, it was quiet and private. Enjoyed back yard frisbee. Would definitely recommend!

I have enjoyed many fun and relaxing stays at the Beach House, most recently in 03/2016. Always clean, comfortable, and in an excellent location. Great beach access adjacent to the property. Whether swinging on the covered deck, sunning on the top deck, walking the beach, etc., it's an ideal place to stay. Can't wait to go back!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Camp is well equipped, very clean, and has a relaxing atmosphere. Across the street is a snowball stand and souvenir shop and store for extra convenience. We also enjoyed the easy access to the beach. Our favorite part was the bottom deck with the 2 swings. Awesome beach breeze. We had a wonderful time and we will be back!
