About the property

2 Bedroom,2 Bathroom,1.5 Acres On Bayou Liberty With 200 Year Old Live Oak Trees

Come home to "Chez moi Chez toi" which truly means "My house, Your house". This beautiful French two story home offers the best of the bayou. The home is set on 1.5 acres with mature Live Oak trees and Pecans. The house features a covered dock, boat ramp and 150' on scenic Bayou Liberty.

You will feel at home in this beautifully restored Louisiana Home. The house features a brand new kitchen, an open floor plan and an original fireplace in the main living area. Upstairs you will find two bedrooms and an adjoining bathroom with the original claw foot bathtub. Each of the bedrooms opens out onto a balcony that overlooks the bayou. There is an additional full bathroom with laundry area on the main floor. There are porches off of every room in the house and there is a beautiful screened in porch off of the kitchen with a BBQ and outdoor dining area. You will enjoy beautiful bayou views from every part of this home.

The location is what truly makes this home perfect. While you can enjoy fishing, crabbing, or bayou cruising in your backyard, you are only 25 minutes from New Orleans. By boat, the house is located just 5 minutes from Lake Pontchartrain and is perfect for a sunset cruise or trout fishing. Come home to the bayou and a taste of Louisiana!

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.

Louisana at its best and convenient, private and beautiful!

Just as it appears in the pics. A beautifully decorated, fully stocked home away from home. We didn't want to leave, very comfortable and just what we were looking for. 5 stars!

wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect place for a vacation. The house has so much charm and the surroundings are enchanting. We spent as much time outdoors as in - relaxing on one of the decks, fishing off the dock, watching the full moon rise over the bayou. Inside, the kitchen is very well stocked and easy to cook in, the beds are very comfy, and the living room is a great place to relax. If you like seafood, you have GOT to go to the owner's seafood store/restaurant (Kenney's Seafood). The seafood is the best! We were so impressed that we loaded up a cooler of seafood and dry ice to take back to Wisconsin at the end of our stay! And the proximity to New Orleans can't be beat - an easy drive to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the city and an easy drive back to relax at this beautiful house. Highly recommended!

Beautiful home in a peaceful, relaxing location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas here and had a great time! This home was super clean and by far the best stocked home we've ever rented. The owner is very nice and even decorated the home for Christmas with a beautiful tree and lighted garland on the porch railings. She also had a welcome basket with delicious snacks for us. I loved the décor and noticed right away that we have very similar tastes.

On Christmas Eve, we had a great lunch at Kenney Seafood (shrimp po-boys) and then drove over to New Orleans for a city tour. We grilled steaks and had lunch in the screened porch on Christmas Day. It was wonderful! Thanks for a perfect holiday vacation!

Awesome place for family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything advertised and more....I lived in the area back in the 1980s and have close friends in Slidell and New Orleans which I visit annually (sometimes my husband comes along). When my husband and I travel we prefer homes or condos vs. hotels. This house was a perfect location for our visit this year as it gave us a nice space for our friends to come hang out with us. We love being on the Bayou for ease of fishing and access to our friends boat. We enjoyed the house and outdoor spaces while having fresh seafood and using the grill. Although it's a 2 bedroom home, I think given permission from the home owner and suitable weather, you can easily pitch a tent on the property for others to come stay. I know the property was damaged after Katrina and I give kudos to the owners in remodeling the house. Great job in redecorating and you go over the top in the amount dishes, towels, amenities, etc. you have in the home. We will plan to stay at this home again and definitely recommend it to others!

Beautiful Bayou Home with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this beautiful home for 2 1/2 months while we had our house renovated. I highly recommended this rental property, whether you're looking for a weekend getaway or a family vacation to experience life on the Bayou!! This home offers many great views of the bayou and for watching the sunset. Every day my family enjoyed watching wildlife from the front porch or the upstairs balcony. My little boy also loved chasing the bunnies in the yard too. This stunning home has a boat dock where you can dock your boat and experience the bayou, or you can just sit and relax on the dock where you can fish and crab.

This home is fully furnished and decorated beautifully. The owners are the nicest people and have thought of everything to make the home extra special so people can feel like they are at home!! I have stayed in a lot of vacation homes, and this one by far is the most cleanest and loveliest places I have rented.

This vacation rental is close to shopping, parks, museums, restaurants (Kenney Seafood has delicious seafood if you want to experience seafood without catching it yourself ), and the home is a hop skip away from New Orleans! Also, the home has a washer machine, dryer, television, phone, and Wifi, too. *** You must see this home, it's breathtaking and offers so much!! *** You won't be disappointed!!! ***

Jewel on Bayou Liberty

  • 5 of 5

"Chex moi Chez toi" is a jewel that we discovered in Slidell on Bayou Liberty. Well appointed with a rustic coastal theme; we were very impressed with the decor. Great areas for cooking and hanging out with family and friends... Perfect for entertaining...

We trailered our boat there, and the back down launch on the property was a bonus. It is a short run to Lake Ponchartrain, and we made multiple trips to Carr Drive to swim with our grandchildren. A very generous dock allowed for our friends to park their boat as well...The owners were available for anything we needed, and were so nice...! We were very pleased with the property, and it is at the top our our local VRBO list!! We plan on returning soon!!
