JABBERWOCKY'S BAYOU HOME WITH POOL!

Slidell House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

If you enjoy nature and want to experience the uniqueness of life on the bayou, this is the perfect vacation home. Located on seven acres this rustic home on a cypress swamp. It is a prime area for birding and wild life. You can fish from your back porch. The style of the house is reminiscent of the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, complete with a rainwater-fed pond underneath the deck that adjoins the two separate wings of the lower level. It is located on seven acres with natural foliage with a wooden pathway to the dock that is on Bayou Liberty. The front of the cedar home is covered in vines and faces the pool, the back of the home faces the bayou. Lake Pontchartrain is a short boat ride away where speckled trout is the desired catch of the day. Bring your boat and use the boat house, or use the flat boat to troll down the canal which leads to the bayou.

The home is located on two levels. The lower level is handicap accessible via a ramp . The lower level is divided into two wings by the walkway over the pond and stairs to the upper level. There is a Corinthian wind chime hanging from the stairs near a large fountain in the pond.

The north wing has one queen sized bedroom with a private balcony, and a small second bedroom with a double bed. This wing also has a full bathroom. The south wing has one queen size bed, living room with a fireplace, large handicap accessible bathroom and fully furnished kitchen on the glass porch. This level has the quickest access to the pool. The pool is surrounded by hedges on one side and the home on the other. The water pool is shaded by an oak tree, and remains cool throughout the summer. Each level has a washer and dryer.

The spacious master bedroom on the upper level has a king size memory foam bed, walk in closet,and full sized bathroom. and private balcony overlooking the bayou.This bedroom also has a 42' HDTV with most of the movie channels.

The living room has three sofas (one a futon), a wood burning fireplace, a 61 inch HDTV, and a large balcony overlooking the bayou, perfect for sunsets, or coffee in the mornings. It is also a great place from which to birdwatch. Blue Herons, Egrets, Osprey, woodpeckers, eagles, and migratory ducks are just a few of the birds which have been sited here. On this level, all the windows face the bayou. Adjacent to the kitchen and living room is a formal dining room.

The home is close enough to visit New Orleans or just stay at home and enjoy the serenity of the bayou and pool. It is the perfect place for family reunions or getting together with a few friends..girls getaway...or a relaxing rendezvous for a fishing trip. For larger parties, please see the listing for the Marsh House which is just down the road, or just down the bayou depending on how you travel.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I'd just like to say that your place was better than advertised. The house was beautiful and felt like a home and not like one of those austere condos. The bayou is exquisite and the views are beyond compare. I stayed there with my family and my brother and his family and it was perfect with the two kitchens and living areas. I only wish that it had been warm enough to go swimming.....but we'll definitely be back....thanks again.

BEAUTIFUL HOME FOR OUR HONEYMOON!

  • 5 of 5
This house was absolutely incredible and perfect for our honeymoon! The pictures just do not do it justice. There was plenty of room for our family and friends to stay just before our destination wedding in Slidell. And our honeymoon was so private, comfortable and romantic. We are already planning our next trip and will not consider staying anywhere else. Although we were conveniently close to New Orleans, the beauty of this property made it really hard to go anywhere else! John was also so accommodating, we couldn't have asked for anything more!

WE WOULD NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE SOUTH.

  • 5 of 5
Date arrival listed is not our date of arrival. The computer wouldn't let me put the correct date in which was the first day of 2010. My family of six stayed at Jabberwocky for almost nine months. I homeschooled our children while my husband worked in New Orleans. Our family traveled and moved every three to six months jumping from Movie to movie and location to location. This stay was not only the longest location of my husbands 22 year career but his last. Now that he has retired we purchased our own home here in California keeping Jabberwocky as the standard. Jabberwocky's pool is worth it's weight in gold and was great for both kids and adults. Our time in this home was the best time we have ever had in all our years of traveling. Last night while planning our summer vacation I pulled up Jabberwocky and my older kids cried happy tears looking at pictures. My younger kids talked of our time there with huge smiles on there faces. All of them agreed that this is hands down where they want to be for summer vacation. The owner is awesome. John makes a mean Gumbo and was so nice to invite us to the country club for dinner. If we had a problem with something it was taken care of immediately. This is our home in the South and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you John for the memories.

GREAT PLACE TO RENT

  • 5 of 5
We went to Slidell with a group for my son's wedding. This house was great. Plenty of room for everyone. Great view and plenty of outdoors space and seating. Not far from New Orleans.

PERFECT FAMILY WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
First thoughts when pulling in to property was "Wow!" Such a beautiful retreat! Took the kids and grandkids for a weekend to end the summer. Enough space for everyone to find a spot and the husband and I had the upstairs pretty much to ourselves for some relaxation. The pool is wonderful, beautiful oak tree shades the hot evening sun, numerous decks and balconies to relax and take in the bayou scenery. Kids enjoyed the turtles, fish and Al E. Gator that call Jabberwocky home. Well stocked, did not want or need a thing. Kitchens on both levels made life much easier. House was clean and comfortable. It feels so secluded but really is close to interstate and stores. Great location easy to get to. Family spent days fishing and walking trails, evenings until past midnight in the pool. Relaxing for all. The pictures were great but do not do this house it's full justice. It is spacious and comfortable. The master bed was a dream to sleep on. Enough bathrooms and bedrooms to keep everyone from feeling crowded. The owner was easily accessible and great to work with. He even offer to allow us to stay a while past check out time which we did. My husband and I walked the property and wished we did not have to return to regular world activities. Our younger grandson (9 yr) asked if there was a school close by. When we replied probably he asked his mother if they could call the owner and ask if they could stay at Jabberwocky! We would recommend this spot for families or even a couple looking to find peace and serentity in a beautiful natural location. We were so taken with the house and grounds, the entire crew never left for anything. We can't wait to schedule our next trip back. Thanks for a great family destination.

WOW FACTOR

  • 5 of 5
We booked our family vacation here. There were (3) families with a total of (10) people. The first response from all was WOW! We were not disappointed at all. This was a great place with private space for each family. Everyone enjoyed the pool and fishing from the dock, especially the grandkids. The owner was very gracious and accommadating, he even took us for a boat tour of the river. It was only a few minutes from town and about 30 minutes from downtown New Orleans, an easy drive on I-10. It's location is very private. It is as if you are the only house around. If you are looking for a fantastic place to enjoy the area this is it.

OUR FAMILY "STAYCATION"

Our Family "Staycation"
  • 5 of 5
My family and extended family just arrived home yesterday from our second week staying at Jabberwocky in the last year and a half. We stayed last February and just loved our time out there! We live here in Slidell and loved it so much, that we chose to spend this years vacation at Jabberwocky again, right here in our own back yard! It is very secluded and yet so close to everything. Even though we live here, there was still a group that ventured out to New Orleans mid week. We launched our boat with ease at the launch just down the street and enjoyed being able to cruise the Bayou. We fished from both the dock out back and from the boat and there were two boats already at the house ( canoe & flat boat) that also were used. The Louisiana wild life did not disappoint and we even had a guest alligator that calls that area home! There were 8 of us who comfortably slept at the house and minimum of 11 people during the day. Having two kitchens is wonderful and made life a lot easier. The way the house is set up, everyone has their own private space which makes it nice to be able to take some time for yourself to read or take a nap or just to have some quiet time. The pool was a big hit as well, very refreshing! Our only disappointment was leaving! We will probably make this an annual family gathering spot!

Owner's Response: Carla thanks so much for the glowing review! I'm glad that your family passed a good time. I'm thinking that if I ever need a marketing director I will give you first shot. Thanks again and thanks for leaving the house so clean when you left. You're welcome back anytime.
