About Aimee Cappy

My husband, four children and I live near this house on the bayou. I grew up in this area and we own a seafood market and restaurant 2 miles from the home. My father has been a commercial fisherman my whole life and the house fits perfectly into our lifestyle. The bayou is a way of life for us. My children love to pass by the house after school and check the crab traps or do a little fishing. The house is located next to St. Genevieve Catholic Church. It is such a unique church because it is also situated directly on the bayou. My children love to take the boat to church and enjoy the scenic bayou.

Aimee Cappy purchased this house in 2005

Why Aimee Cappy chose Slidell

I have loved this property for years. I would pass the house by boat and admire the beautiful live oak trees and the peaceful setting. Properties are rarely for sale on this historic bayou because most of the homes are inherited through family. We were so fortunate to be able to purchase this home in 2005 and we have lovingly restored it. The house is also located on a private road with only one other house. It is truly a retreat.

Wish I could pick this house up and sit it down on my property in Tennessee

  • 5 of 5

We came down with family (Alabama and Clemson fans) for the Sugar Bowl. This property was exactly what we were looking for. Very charming, deep-south feel. This house is very well furnished and my family thoroughly enjoyed spending New Years Eve by the fire. The surrounding areas of Slidell and Covington were very easily accessible. Getting to the game at the Superdome in New Orleans was an easy drive as well. I found myself missing the beautiful floors, porches, and views as soon as we left. Thanks to Aimee for the special treats as well!! Would love to visit when we can do some boating. Will definitely be back!

Great house with charming decor. We will return.

The house is decorated beautifully. The dock was nice to keep our boat on the water all week. The fire place came in handy when we got snow. Aimee has a first class accommodation.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house. It was clean and had everything supplied that you can imagine. Some vacation rentals have the cheapest kitchen utensils and supplies but not this house. It has high end stuff that you can actually use. It has a dishwasher and the refrigerator/freezer has an ice maker which is really handy if you need ice for your cooler. Also has a washing machine and dryer so we only packed about 4 days worth of clothes and then did laundry half way through our stay.

This house is private but still close enough to all of the attractions. New Orleans is only 25 miles away and the drive went by fast. Other attractions that are convenient that we enjoyed was driving along the coast to Biloxi and Gulfport, Infinity Science Center and NASA, Steamboat Natchez, Tabasco tour at Avery Island and a swamp tour right in Slidell.

If you want someplace close to eat or to buy fresh seafood, check out Kenny Seafood in Slidell. We went there a few times and then bought some fresh seafood to freeze and bring back home. BB Kings & Deanie's Seafood were wonderful in New Orleans. Then you have to try the drinks hand grenade at the Tropical Isle and the hurricane at Pat O'Brien's.

There is plenty to do around the area to keep you busy for a week. I would suggest that if you have a cooler with you, keep it in your trunk so when you run across different stands that are selling stuff, you can keep it cool. After a day of running around, it was nice to come back to a wonderful house that was quite to relax until the next days adventure.

When we were originally looking for a rental house for our vacation, this was the only house we could find that was private and didn't have a neighbors deck so close that you could reach out and touch them. I would highly recommend this house and if we come back to this area again, we will be staying here.

This property is everything described in listing and more. We instantly fell in love with the home and the setting and quickly appreciated all of the accommodations. The owners were very helpful when we were inquiring and turned out to be amazing hosts. We loved the welcoming gift and book of information waiting for us upon our arrival. As mother nature decided to unleash pretty significant rain/wind along with tropical storm Cindy during our visit, we were checked on personally by the owner and felt quite assured that we were in good hands. The personal touches to this experience made the trip especially enjoyable. The house itself was not only very clean and beautifully decorated but completely stocked with everything we needed. I would highly recommend this property and hope to visit it again myself.
