Why Val and Renee Morel, 850 377 9130, info@SeaAndSkyRentals.com chose Louisiana

Why Mandeville ?

Being born and raised in NOLA, Lucretia has always missed the Louisiana culture. Old Mandeville offers small town charm yet big city conveniences. We loved Old Mandeville when we lived here and love it even more now. The Mandeville Tree house is our return home cottage. We hope you will enjoy the Mandeville Tree house as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

Benefits of the home :

This home is located on the north shore in Historic Old Mandeville, just one short block from Lake Ponchartrain Lakefront. The Lakefront offers beautiful views and opportunities for walking, biking or just relaxing on the seawall. It also offers a playground and water fountain for children to play in. Numerous excellent restaurants are located within walking distance from the home. The St. Tammany Trace (bike trail) is nearby and the New Orleans French Quarter is an easy drive away. The home itself is in a beautiful setting, privately located within a grove of large oak trees. Enjoying refreshments on the covered front porch is very enjoyable.

Mardi Gras Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Mandeville Treehouse for a long Mardi Gras weekend was awesome! The house was able to accommodate 6 people very comfortably and it was an easy drive to the Causeway bridge to go into town. There is a great playground right on the lakefront around the corner so my child enjoyed some play time too while I enjoyed the beautiful views.

The owners of the house have put a lot of consideration into their guest's stay because they have menus from all of the surrounding restaurants in the binder and notated their favorites which was very helpful when deciding on where to eat.

The porch is really nice and relaxing to sit on high up in the trees while sipping on a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine.

We truly enjoyed our visit and recommend it to any out of towners looking for a comfortable place to stay near New Orleans. We will definitely be back!

Great place in Mandeville, LA.

  • 5 of 5

We booked two weeks at this two bedroom house near Lake Ponchartrain with another couple and found that we were near great restaurants, great walking areas and bike paths. The house was well equipped with a large fully equipped kitchen, two large bathrooms, two bedrooms with doors to the huge deck and laundry facilities. We plan on booking another two weeks next year.

Great property near the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was large with high ceilings, large bedrooms and great fully equipped kitchen and laundry. It was walking distance from the lake and great restaurants and not to far from the entrance to the causeway to New Orleans.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are highly satisfied with this VRBO getaway. The house, location, amenities are as advertised. This was our second rental of this property and we'll continue to use it for vacations. The beds are very comfortable, everything is spic 'n span. The kitchen is great--easy & convenient to prepare and serve meals. TV, wifi good. There are many great restaurants nearby. Plus, the location is convenient for excursions to New Orleans or Baton Rouge, La., State Capitol tour recommended. Very much enjoy revisiting the Pontchartrain Lakeshore and the Mandeville old town. Vacation is so much more pleasant staying in a home rather than any motel.

good but expensive

  • 3 of 5

We were a little disappointed at what we'd spent So much for. The kitchen and amenities were nice. It was not on the water but down the street and a little hard to find. When we called about the wifi not working we had to wait at the house for two days for AT&T to come out to fix it. When I called about the house sleeping 6 we were incorrectly told about there being a sofa bed and then she called back to correct the mistake and were told about the air mattresses in the closet. I found the mattresses but there was nothing to blow them up. We ended up putting my niece on the couch. I would recommend this house for no more than four people, that would be the perfect number.
