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 Louisiana

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.

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.

Wonderful getaway for couple or family

  • 5 of 5

The home and property are beautiful. The owners have done a great job remodeling the house while still maintaining its original character. The home is very clean and well decorated. The yard is massive.

We had fun fishing and crabbing off the dock. There was even a boat ramp in case you brought your own boat.

We spent most of our time outdoors; when the mosquitoes started to bite we hung out in the screened in porch which has a big table and chairs and a grill.

The home is secluded from other neighbors by a border of trees, however there is a bridge that is visible from the backyard. Cars frequently pass over the bridge and boats pass under. It didn't bother us too much because everyone in Slidell is so friendly and kind. Most people who passed by in their boats waived.

Overall we had a lovely experience and would definitely recommend this home to others.

Nice, clean and secluded hideaway on The bayou. We loved this place.

  • 4 of 5

Photos of the owners' father with large tarpon and alligator was a nice touch. Everything you might need for cooking a meal. Didn't see any neighbors. Nice and quiet location only 25 minutes from New Orleans and the French quarter. Will stay here again. Thanks Amy.
