Casa del Sol is an elegant Mediterranean style home located on a secluded island at the edge of the city of Slidell. Historic Olde Town, fine restaurants, theaters, and shopping are minutes away, yet it feels as though you have escaped to a distant island far from it all.
Whatever your pleasure, be it canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing , fishing or just doing a little crabing, you can do it right behind our 230' dock. Bring your own boat or rent a pontoon boat up the bayou and park it in our private boat slip. It's a 10 minute scenic boat ride down Bayou Bonfouca to Lake Pontchartrain . Along the way you may encounter wildlife such as osprey, owl, pelican, duck, nutria, gator and on occasion manatee. A canoe & paddle boat along with life jackets and paddles are provided for your pleasure. If you just want to unwind and relax in private, the veranda is that perfect spot to sit back, perhaps read a good book and enjoy the sunset.
The den, dining room and kitchen are an open floor plan with large screen tv, stereo surround sound and an all glass view of the bayou. The master suite is completely private with a California King Tempur-pedic, stereo surround sound and private balcony over looking the water. The master bath has a sunken whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. The serene 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and sliding glass door for direct access to the veranda. The 3rd fun bedroom/office is complete with a trundle bed that converts to twin or king, desk and a view of the courtyard. The two bedrooms are connected with a Hollywood Bath. Each bedroom is furnished with a large screen tv and luxury linens.
We welcome you to our little piece of paradise we call Casa del Sol. As it says at our front door:
Mi Casa Es Su Casa
Sharon and Luke met on a dive trip many years ago. We designed and built Casa del Sol after traveling extensively in the Carribean. Bayou Bonfouca is perfect for so many of our interests:kayaking, canoeing, fishing, crabbing, boating, seaplane flying and watching the sun set.
Our love of travel is the reason we want to share this special home with you. When we are not local, our lovely daughter-in-law Lori will assist you if you have a question or problems.
We sincerely hope you love our home, bayou and town as much as we do.
Wendell and Sharon Lewko purchased this house in 1990
While only 25 minutes from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast casinos and beaches, Slidell has become an exciting, quaint destination.

Our guestbook will direct you to our favorites.

A property that invites children, teenagers and adult to celebrate life together; as well as allowing each guest to privately enjoy solitude.
This home is a true gem! We stayed for 10 days and could not have been more comfortable. It was as represented in the VRBO listing. Very clean and welcoming made it easy to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The property was a good central location for all the activities we had planned in the area as well as access to stores and restaurants. Back yard and patio area was beautiful and comfortable which made that our go to spot while we were there. Kitchen well stocked with cooking utensils, dishes and pans, only thing lacking there was a full size coffeemaker. The property manager was great to work with, answering all questions and concerns in a timely manner when we were booking and available if needed while we were there. Was very helpful with directions and suggestions for things we requested. We enjoyed an unforgettable time for our first trip to Louisiana at this beautiful home on the scenic Bayou! This is a VRBO listing not to be missed!! Five Stars for sure!

We stayed for a weekend and had two family gatherings. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining. Received a lot of compliments for the beautiful patio and views. The children did some bass fishing which kept them entertained. No thru traffic which makes the area very safe. Nothing but good things to say about our experience with the property.
