5 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths Modern Home on 5 acres with 1,000 waterfront view
About Erick Lewko
Chez D is what I call this private modern home; it's quiet and truly wonderful. I love to sit on the pristine white sofas and look out through the numerous large windows at the water. I was reared in New Orleans and built this home as a quick get-a-way. It's a 20-30 minute beautiful drive over Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. Even though the home is only a couple of years young, I have enjoyed many happy hours having dinners, parties, BBQs, and sleepovers with family and friends. The stars are clear and bright with always a beautiful breeze from the bayou. I love having an elevator because the home is 18 feet from the ground level. It makes bringing in groceries or suitcases exceptionally easy. There are numerous large oak trees with Spanish moss on the cleared and manicured lawn. One large oak tree by the home has a swing for children. There's a wooden swing on the peninsula of the property near the water for viewing ducks, wildlife, or just enjoying being.
Erick Lewko purchased this House in 2013

Beautiful Property Pleasure to stay there
The property was beautiful and very clean. The house was very well equipped and included many thoughtful extras that aren't normally included in a rental. The only reason this house did not receive 5 stars is because of the distance from downtown New Orleans. The ad stated less than 30 minutes, while our commute was more like 40 mins.
While we appreciate the kind words about the house and that you left it very clean upon your departure, I am very surprised that you are dinging our star rating because the drive time to your destination in the city took 10 minutes longer than the "estimated" time we stated in the description.
Obviously, there are maps on VRBO that show the exact location of the home and directions to various places in New Orleans are readily available should anyone want more accurate or specific mileage and time details for wherever it is in and around New Orleans they may be going. To be more specific, the exact distance to the Superdome from this house is 33miles, 30 of which are Interstate travel in mostly 70mph zones. Other area attractions are closer, some are farther away.
Hopefully, the welcome bottle of wine we placed out for your arrival along with the relaxing sunsets and view of the bayou from the 2nd floor patio helped relieve some of the stress of the additional 10 minute commute to the city.
I didn't believe in fairy tales until NOW!!!!
Amazing property beautiful on the picture...far more Amazing in person. If I could buy I would...perfect place for a piece of MIND!!!!!!
Thank you for the kind words. We appreciate you choosing our place for your visit.
Phenomenal Stay at this Mesmerizing Home!!
We had the absolute pleasure of staying at your property with our party of 10 (all adults) from March 2nd-6th (2019) and sad to say we only have 2 hrs remaining of our stay. Couldn’t leave without thanking you for allowing this to be our home during our short visit to New Orleans. Your property is absolutely STUNNING! The view from our bedroom was so peaceful and relaxing. As a matter of fact the views throughout the home were amazing! Everything in this modern home was exquisite and very tastefully done. Best rental we’ve experienced to date. Our group is already preparing to return next year. Thank you, thank you, thank you - 10 stars here!
Glad you had a great time and we'd love for you to visit again!
Luxury Luxury Luxury (and some peace and quiet too)
The pictures don't do it justice. Everything is bigger and better in person. This feels less like "a house" and more like a private luxury modern boutique hotel. Calming, open layout with great windows and wide views. Many different areas for socializing in small groups or together. Great artwork in every corner. Every bedroom could be a master bedroom - usually when you rent a 5 bedroom place for a group of adult couples, someone has to draw the short straw for the one or two lesser bedrooms that have tiny beds etc. Not here. Every bedroom is luxury, king size, with private bathroom. The owners have stocked this house with at least one of every convenience invented by mankind. We cooked a massive feast as if we were in our own kitchen. Our running joke became, "there has to be one of (whatever we wanted) around here somewhere" because we were always right. We had joked at the excess of a "private elevator" but then used it constantly for our 81 year old mother. Great for family or friend reunions; also could work excellently for a small executive retreat. Splendid, say we.
Thanks for your visit and we look forward to your return.
Most Outstanding Rental House of the 16 I Have Rented!
Our family of 9, which includes a man in a wheelchair, spent one amazing week in this outstanding home. Every detail of this property was just perfect...the spacious living accommodations, the furnishings, the art work, the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, the gigantic washers and dryer, the grounds leading down to the bayou, the perfectly working elevator (an absolute necessity for our disabled individual), the screened-in porch with its comfortable seating, the five bedrooms and their bathrooms...I cannot say enough about this spectacular rental property. Our family journeyed from Slidell into New Orleans 6 days in a row, and the 40 minute drive was easy as could be. We loved being in the French Quarter again, eating at The Gumbo Shop, Avery's, Brennan's, and Camellia's, visiting Tulane, riding the street car down St. Charles Avenue, and drinking in the incredible World War II Museum. If you seek a luxurious, care-free experience near New Orleans, this is your house. Our party ranged in age from 16 to 81, and all of us drank every moment in with great pleasure. P.S. Keep your eyes open for the brown bunny that lives in the back yard, and your ears open for the songs of the birds in the trees. Heavenly...
Marilyn, we appreciated having you as a guest and are grateful for the care you took with the home. We welcome you back anytime and wish you the best with your travels!
