I lived in New Orleans for 20 years so it's always special to return, especially with my family, who did not grow up in New Orleans. This home made it even more special, it is everything anyone could ask for. Right in the middle of Slidell and New Orleans and seemingly in the middle of nowhere. The lake views were fantastic the fishing was great ( we caught red fish, drum, stingrays, Croakers, catfish, flounder and a couple others we didn't identify) and the crabbing was even better. This home was modern and had all the features necessary, a fully stocked kitchen with a great assortment of pots pans and dishes, three smart TVs, washer and dryer and extremely fast Wi-Fi. I will always remember the great views of sunrise and sunset and a long private walk over the water. The homeowner/hostess gave you your space and at the same time was very attentive, when needed. The home is set up perfect for the entire family, very cozy well organized and clean. No worries about the stairs when it comes to ice chests and luggage as the cargo lift is a savior. Just make sure you schedule more than a couple of days because a couple of days will not be enough and you will not want to leave. Thank you for a great time!
