About Tammy Alphonse

I am a life-long Slidell resident. My two children (now 30 and 26) grew up in this waterfront community and thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors in their childhood. This is our 3rd home in this neighborhood. I'm a Realtor of 13 years and have vast knowledge and experience in "rental properties." I have been a property manager and landlord and have rented our Allegro Tiffan Motorhome to individuals for their vacation needs and desires. I'm commitment to making this vacation destination the most fulfilling and enjoyable opportunity possible.

Tammy Alphonse purchased this house in 2006

Why Tammy Alphonse chose Louisiana

I just can't say enough about the GREAT times we've had with family, friends and guests. What stands out the most, is that everyone who has visited and/or stayed raves about just how relaxing and enjoyable it was! You truly feel as though you are in a little piece of a Tropical Paradise. What a wonderful way to get away!!!

What makes this house unique

Some of our unique benefits are…plenty of covered areas for leisure and social times, pool, Lake, bayous, docks, boat launch, boat house and lift, in-house bar and movie theater with surround sound inside and outside. Bring your own boat or rent one and ski/knee board/cruise right behind the house in Palm Lake. Our vacation home is fully stocked with top notch stainless Steele appliances (5 burner stove/oven, side by side refrigerator, dishwasher and full size microwave, granite countertops, cookware, crawfish pot and burner, fish fryer, fishing poles, crab traps, bicycle, kayak, swimming pool toys, floats, towels, sunscreen, paper products, seasonings, blender, toaster, coffey pot, Egyptian cotton linens, plush towels, cleaning supplies, cards, dice and so much more!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated our sons senior graduation with family here. Was absolutely the best time. we have a large immediate family with a variety of age groups. There was something for everyone to do. We brought a boat and went fishing, kayaking, swimming, played cards in the bar and even danced. The whole family loved it and cannot stop talking about how great it was. Thank you so much for sharing this house!

Best Spring Break Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate my son's 16th birthday over spring break and it was awesome! This place by far exceeded my expectations. It's loaded with nothing but fun! The pictures she shows on HomeAway doesn't even come close to what this place offers. The bar and the theater room are huge!!!! Not to mention a garage, and a walk in closet that's as big as a bedroom. Everything we needed was right there. We didn't get to enjoy the pool due to cold weather, but we sure enjoyed everything else the place had to offer. Trust me... you will fall in love with this place. There's so many nice things to say. Thanks Tammy for letting us rent your beautiful home we will definitely be back!

Quaint home packed with entertainment

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at the Palm Lake home for a week in February, 2017. From the start, Tammy was great communicating every detail to make it easy for us to enjoy our vacation. We were pleased to be able to utilize the gorgeous kitchen for many our meals. They have all preparation items you could need. We even did a crawfish boil and the house came with the pot (don't worry it's HUGE and was perfect), burner, paddle...etc. That to us was the icing on the cake. The entertainment in this home just does. not. end. They have games, cards (many of which were sticky but we found one good set), a theatre - not to mention those couches are heaven, the outdoor space gave everyone options, they have several fishing poles; there are huge bass in the lake, a couple we caught and released, the pool room comes with a t.v. or radio, the guys played craps and had a blast! The rooms themselves, excluding the master were fairly small so we ended up storing a lot of our items in the master closet.

There was little we did not like about our stay. Be prepared for the trains during all times of the day and night. They are loud and woke us up many times. If you do make your meals there, buy small items we ended up discarding a lot of condiments and food. Be prepared for mosquitos, we all were bit!

Overall we would choose this home over and over again for it's never ending entertainment and comfort.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay. During Mardi Gras season trains are re-routed to the tracks located outside of the neighborhood. Thank goodness that this activity is not heightened all the time. I'm going to check all the decks of cards (as there are a bunch of them) for the craps/poker table and get rid of any which may have encountered "spills." Thank you for bringing this to my attention. We look forward to having you and your family back anytime!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

WE loved our stay. The home was modern. The location was quiet and had great sunset views. The kids loved the pool and the movie room. We would recommend this location for families or adult getaways.
