Al is really a great person to do business with and he has a beautiful waterfront home. He made it extremely easy to book his property and was reasonably priced for a beautiful furnished, well equipped house. From the brand new furniture in every room, to the high end stainless steel appliances Al really has his house loaded. Travertine tile showers, granite countertops, and hardwood floors throughout. Not to mention the huge outdoor patio out front overlooking Lake Pontchartrain, with canal access and boat dock in the back. Me and five of my best friends stayed here the first weekend of Jazz Fest and enjoyed having a quiet place to hang out and wind down after being in New Orleans. It’s a short 25 minute drive to the heart of the French Quarter and in 30 minutes you can be parked at Harrahs and ready to play. We ended up here due to planning our trip without knowing it was Jazz Fest and was unable to find a room in town, however we all agreed it was the best option. You will get much more, for a fraction of what it would have cost for a group of six. Thanks again Al!
