Slidell House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Other, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7-15)

Welcome to the Bijou on the Bayou (We named it this because Bijou is French for Jewel which best describes the Beautiful Bayous of Slidell, LA.) This Home is located on the Famous Bayou Liberty and is just minutes drive or minutes boat ride to Lake Pontchartrain. With a gorgeous morning view of Bayou Liberty from your kitchen/ living room (as well as soon to be added deck), your sure to enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast even more. Not to mention Grill outs and get together with friends on the large porches and soon to be added party deck.

Bijou on the Bayou is a 2 Story beautifully furnished home right on the bayou. As you can see from the pictures, it has a beautiful foyer entrance with an Oak staircase going up to the main floor where you will find a very open floor plan of Large Living Room and Large Kitchen with large bay windows in both rooms. The Kitchen is very large with all brand new dishes, pots and pans and all the cooking utensils you need to enjoy a full cooking experience. The Living Room has a brand new couch and Loveseat and stares at a brand new 46' LCD HDTV with New Blu-Ray player for your Theater viewing experience, as well as a comfy gas fireplace.

Then you will walk down the hall to the fully decorated brand newly furnished 3 bedrooms with 2 Queen sized beds, chest of drawers and plenty of room. One of the two extra rooms has a TV and DVD Player. Then you will come to the Beautiful Master Bedroom which has a King Size Bed, and Large Couch as well as Desk built for an office/ entertainment area. This room is equipped with new 36' LCD HDTV Screen, Cable TV, and a new Blu-Ray Player for your enjoyment. The Master Bathroom has tons of Closet space, a stand up Shower as well as a Master Jacuzzi Bathtub. A full Laundry room with full size washer and dryer is located in the hallway. All linens and Bath towels provided.

Travel down below to the newly added game room which features a 50' projection TV, dart board, small bar/game table with 4 chairs, bathroom, small beer cooler (refrigerator), and plenty of room to enjoy an evening with friends. This room is heated and cooled as well so it makes a very nice extra bedroom for the house, and it can be easily converted to become the fourth bedroom, by bringing your own blow-up mattresses or opting to rent them. Extra Blow-up beds are available upon request. Please contact the owner for details. This room also has quick access to the outside porches for grilling and other entertainment. (Note: Large Screens and Projectors are available for rental as well.)

Parking is available for multiple vehicles with a two car garage with locking doors, a covered carport for another car, two spots right in front of the garage doors and plenty of other space on the 1 acre lot right next to the house for RV's and Boat Trailers (additional charges may apply for long term RV Hook and Electrical Hookups.

If you like Fishing, this is the spot to be. The deck and area around the back yard is perfect for pier fishing and crabbing and is complete with a fish cleaning station and Lanai. Fishing Charters can be arranged and boat rental are available. This location is about 1 minute car and boat ride to the nearest boat launch, 2-3 miles from Northshore Blvd where Northshore Mall, Home Depot, Sams, Walmart, Target, Olive Garden, Chili's, Chucky Cheese, IHOP and a brand new Theater are all right on the one major area. While its close to all the main amenities, its just the perfect amount away to make it seem far away from everything and no noise of a city.

This is a great Home for Family Vacations and Getaways, but is also available for Rentals for Executives and Corporate Rentals where a long term company project may need a perfect place for multiple contractors, or short term contract employees might want to live. Its also a great place for Snowbirds wanting a perfect winter vacation where its warmer climate and waterfront amenities make it a great second home.

About James Deslonde

I Purchased this home right before Hurricane Katrina, but of course Katrina did a little damage to the down stairs of this home which was completely renovated. During that time I found work in other areas and decided to move to the beach to become a beach boy. I wish I could pick this home and property up and move it to my new location but I cant so I hold it as a great place to stay for a getaway and a place to stay when I do business in New Orleans. The home is protected by a security system as well as local neighbors and friends (not to mention a police officer that lives in plan view of the home across the street) that look after the place and make sure nothing bad happens to it. It is in a very secure area but its nice to know the backup is there while I'm gone.

James Deslonde purchased this house in 2005

Why James Deslonde chose Slidell

This spot speaks for itself. It was too beaufiful not to pass up. It gave me the feel of being in the islands somewhere since the property is surrounded by bamboo trees and natural growth.

What makes this house unique

The Views, the wildlife, the dock are just a few things that make this house memorable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at your rental house.

The kids enjoyed staying in the house, as we did not even have to leave the house to see excitement!

We met a lot of interesting people, while visiting the area. We met some locals at the Wildlife Refuge who invited us to go "Crabbing" with them. Our daughter had a blast trying to catch crabs, we had a hard time tearing her away! We then went to a restaurant in Madisonville (upon their suggestion) and enjoyed a huge platter of seafood!

The house was wonderful and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay, it is a lovely home. It was located very conveniently to the places we wanted to go and shopping.

Awesome Vacation Home.....

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Bijou on the Bayou during Christmas was the perfect choice for what we needed. We have done several vacation rentals by owner and this was another great experience. The house has an open floor plan allowing enough room for us all to be together with loads of space. The outside area was fabulous. It had a large dock to fish, a BBQ pit(which we used and it it worked well), and a fire pit. We took full advantage of all the property had to offer and really enjoyed our stay. I had to get in touch with Nick(the owner) a few times and he got back to me immediately, answering all my questions and addressing any issues I had. Overall, it was a wonderful holiday and hope to return in the future.

We LOVED this house....First thing I did was take pictures to show it off....I loved the out door living space and spent huge chunks of time outside...We had everything we needed during out stay....We have family in the area and they spent most of our stay with us because it felt like home! I will definitely be back. I was close to everywhere my family and I wanted to be....It was the best money we have ever spent on a vacation..

Mardi Gras 2015 Great rental if you have kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Mardi Gras, we had to many kids and didn't want to stay right in New Orleans. This is a great location, took us only 35 to 40 min to get to New Orleans. Kids loved being close to the water and being able to fish whenever they wanted. On downtime we made fires in the fire pit or just chilled on the deck. We all loved the deck. There were enough beds, futons and pull outs for everyone.

Nice Location & House

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and will return in the summer next time, great area nice house.

We had a large group 13 (6 Adults, 2 Collage Age,3 Teens, & 2 Grade School) plenty of room to accommodate just need to be creative on the sleeping arrangements (Couches, Futons, Mattresses, & Beds who sleeps in what room).

Location is great we spent half the time in NO and the other half looking at the many attractions and tours in the area.

I have to be honest that the house needed some maintenance & TLC we informed owner of. All issues were minor that did not require immediate attention just small inconveniences that I hope the owner fixes before the next renter is inconvenienced.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate a review when its positive but also when we get feedback that can help us improve or fix items that may go unnoticed until someone brings it to our attention. Many realize that a vacation property is still a home and needs continual upkeep. For this reason we periodically update our property to keep it as beautiful as possible and repair items that need to be fixed. The few items that were brought to our attention were mostly cosmetic and have now been addressed for our future renters. We look forward to having this renter back soon and appreciate their positive response with excellent suggestions that helped us correct the matters quickly.

Best Thanksgiving Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This year we decided to do something different for Thanksgiving. With family in Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi it was the perfect location and large enough for all of us. It was very private and peaceful and the yard was great for throwing a football or relaxing on the dock by the water. The kitchen and den were very spacious with plenty of room for 14 of us for Thanksgiving dinner. The drive to New Orleans is not bad at all. It is the best of both worlds and I would definitely rent this place again. Thanks Nick!

suprise 50th.

  • 5 of 5

I booked this "getaway" as a surprise for my husband's 50th. birthday party, gathering his friends from years ago. The place was spectacular, so clean, and very warm welcoming. Since it was mid summer, I wish I would have brought along some tents. Sitting in the backyard was so relaxing, or by the fire pit, plenty of room to roam around. It was so convenient to everything including the launch, I think that made the trip worth while, that everyone could bring their own boats and docked them right behind the place. That was the only time we left, to dock boats then go back to pick them up.

If I have the opportunity to plan another big event, I will definitely book this place again, everyone was very pleasant to work with, very professional. Also, my deposit was refunded quickly. Thanks Nick for all your help.
