We just arrived from a six night stay at the Jabberwocky house. We chose this home for the simple fact that it was the only one we could find in the area, that was handicap accessible. We were bringing my father on vacation and he is in a wheelchair. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. There were four of us. Myself, my husband, my father, and his caretaker. The layout could not have been better for all of us to be together, but to also have privacy. We didn't realize upon reading the description, that we all had SEPARATE wings. At first, we were nervous, as we didn't know how my father could reach his caretaker, since she was in a completely different wing. No worries though, the telephone has an intercom system. Very easy to use. The bayou is filled with turtles and we even had our own alligator, that we fed almost daily. The only thing I would say, that was slightly negative, is that this house has lived thru Hurricane Katrina. The house does show some signs of this, like in the upstairs bathroom. The shower/tub enclosure was a mess. It was moldy and I didn't like that at all. The owner, has done a lot of work on the place, and continues to keep it up. That being said, it was perfect for our group and we loved every minute of it. My father, 81, was able to fish off the back porch and really loved being outdoors there and marveling at the nature. We were a quick drive, 35 minutes, to New Orleans, and the trip is very easy. If we every head back, we will definitely keep our fingers crossed that the Jabberwocky House will be available.
