About Liz

I am a native New Orleanian who is passionate about the world, other cultures and it's people, food and land. I have lived in Charlotte, San Diego, Austin and have traveled all over the world. As a fellow traveler, I want to offer you exceptional accommodations during your stay in the Big Easy!

Liz purchased this house in 2014

Why Liz chose Louisiana

My home is truly a unique gem. Special attention was given to every detail with the architectural design of the home and the all new custom furnishings. The pool is your own personal sanctuary. And, just out your front door is beautiful Lake Pontchartrain where you can stroll, jog or ride my bike along the trail for miles!

The neighborhood is very quiet and considered to be very safe.

Beautiful Home, Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with every possible convenience. There is plenty of space to relax, including a lovely patio and a pool that was a big hit with our children. The location is very convenient with good access to the airport and area attractions. As a bonus, the house is two houses in from Lake Pontchatrain where there is a great walking path and beautiful open space. The best part, however, is the owner, Liz. She is a great host and really made every effort to make our stay wonderful! We look forward to staying here again soon!

Lovely home and complete with pool.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the 5 of us and this home was more than expected.

Everything was perfect and we would stay here again, over and over.

Location was perfect with about a $12 Uber ride to city and airport.

Local shopping was great and the owner was wonderful.

Way too much !! We are trying to go back...

  • 5 of 5

The house is much beautiful and bigger than it looks in the pictures. Much more than we expected.

The best of all was Liz, the owner. She made us feel at home right away and we are trying to go back to her place for another great vacation in New Orleans

Fabulous NEW home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to New Orleans and loved staying in this beautiful house. We were just steps from the lake and thoroughly enjoyed the salt water pool. The layout is wide open, perfect for entertaining. The property is meticulously maintained. I would highly recommend this house and hope to be back soon!

Elegant and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this beautiful home in Metairie while visiting New Orleans for a family reunion. Located just steps from the lake, we conveniently enjoyed the trails along the levee for a tranquil early morning walk to get our day started.

The design and decor of the home can best be described as contemporary, yet cozy. The decor an elegant yet rustic and industrial touches throughout the home. Both bedrooms are extremely warm, inviting and comfortable with plenty of space for everyone. It's clear a lot of thought and attention to detail was implemented into the design and decor of this home (I believe many of the pieces were custom made).

The large kitchen offered everything we needed with high-end cookware and top of the line appliances.

We were able to relax by the saltwater pool and swim some laps after our morning walk as the sun came out.

Overall, this home offered everything we needed and more. I can't wait to stay here again!
