About Jason

Born and raised in south Louisiana.

Jason purchased this house in 2012

Why Jason chose Lac des Allemands

We chose this property as our "nearby get-away" with it being only a short drive from our home. The house is surrounded by Louisiana's fascinating history and culture, from the nearby plantations and neighbors.

What makes this house unique

This house was built on what is likely the last development in Lac des Allemands. The lake is influenced by saltwater which makes for great crabbing. The water lagoons and plant life allow for diverse wildlife, including an array of bird species and the occasional alligator.

Great 4-day stay over Christmas time!

  • 5 of 5

The 5 of us had a family vacation for the holidays in southern Louisiana. We enjoyed exploring New Orleans for a week, but this spacious and comfortable house was a haven of calm and peace after the hustle and bustle. We kayaked, played ping-pong, cooked gumbo and jambalaya, visited nearby Laura and Whitney plantations (highly recommend!), walked around the neighboring lakeside houses, and most importantly, rested. We could spend hours bird-watching from pretty much every room in the house. Thanks Jason and Ashley for making our stay a breeze!

The house was very clean and adequate size for the 6-10 people that were there.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house with 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. More than adequate for our guests. It was hot, humid and buggy the majority of our stay, so we stayed on the decks and didn't venture out on the grass. It was a lovely view and saw an occasional gator and eagle along with other birds and large turtles.

If you like peace , tranquility and family togetherness it's a perfect place! If your aim is going into New Orleans and Baton Rouge, etc. it's over an hour drive each way.

Jason and Ashley were great hosts and responded quickly when I had a question.

Nice Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated how quickly we were able to pull this vacation together at the last minute since our vacation to the FL Keys was cancelled due to the hurricane. Jason was great to work with - very responsive to all of our questions. The house was very well kept. We saw a lot of interesting things and tasted food that we had never had before. Several plantations are close to this house to tour. We went to Oak Alley Plantation where we also enjoyed a nice lunch at their restaurant. We also visited Avery Island to see how Tabasco sauce was made and its history. Of course, we went to New Orleans several times as well. We enjoyed watching the alligators at dusk from the balcony. We also caught catfish, trout and a few snails off of the dock. Thanks for your hospitality.

This was my second stay for a reason. The place is perfect in every way, comfortable, well appointed, great atmosphere, peaceful, spacious, and fantastic hosts down to the little welcome note on the refrigerator. It couldn't be done any better.
