Why owner/property manager chose Louisiana

This is the home my wife grew up in and then we ended up buying it in 2001. We held it as a yearly rental property but decided in 2011 to renovate it completely and use it as a second home and vacation rental. We went down to the studs and completely redid the interior with all new windows, plumbing, electrical, cabinets, 2 central AC units and refinished the antique wood floors. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

The downstairs is set up with the kitchen, dining and living room serving as a great room with a double-sided fireplace. You'll love the large new deck overlooking the river. The house is situated on an acre with lots of trees, bamboo and azaleas. There are neighbors on each side but they are not that close to our house and the lush foliage and trees will make you feel very secluded. All the amenities of the North Shore are just minutes away or drive to New Orleans in about 45 minutes.

Lovely Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Magnolia Bluff for our family celebrating our nephews wedding. The home provided us the space to all feel comfortable in. There are tons of supplies and amenities already there. You will find many games supplied which will keep old and young occupied. We could not have asked for a better location. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your home.

Perfect place to stay for a family!

  • 5 of 5

My family which included 5 adults and 4 children stayed here for a week in the summer for a family reunion. It was wonderful to be able to stay in Covington so we could be close to our family who lives there but still have all the amenities of a home (vs hotel rooms). Comfortable beds, beautiful kitchen and bathrooms, and great outdoor space. Truly couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time with family on vacation!!

Lovely place to,stay...highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We held a family gathering here as I was visiting from New Zealand and although I have two sisters who live in Mandeville, there were various family members from other parts of the country coming in as well. The screened porch was perfect for those with little children to play. The spacious living area was perfect for visiting, and the comfortable beds were very welcome indeed. We hope to,repeat the experience in perhaps another two years time, and would definitely try to,stay here again.

Hidden Gem in Covington

  • 5 of 5

We had two families as part of a family reunion and were looking for a place large enough for ten people. The downstairs open layout was conducive to socializing. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. It had all sorts of great things available (puzzles, books, games, videos). The location is great, right in the midst of many shopping areas and recreational amenities (Tammany bike trail ) . Owner was easy to deal with and the price fairly represented to product. Would return again for another family reunion.

Perfect home for team members and significant others to stay during state tennis tournament. Within 5-15 minutes of all courts. Rooms were nice and spacious with very comfortable beds and nice linens, bathrooms nicely updated, beautiful kitchen with all cookware needed, and great open floor plan downstairs for everyone to gather. Highly recommended.
