This was such a great house! Lisa was very easy to communicate with and the house was clean and exactly as described. Our family used it on our vacation and... read more loved coming back to it in the evening after exploring the New Orleans area. We really enjoyed fishing off the back pier and the space we all had in the house. I highly recommend this property and working with Lisa!
This house is very nice. Well appointed and a nice layout for a large group. The back porch was wonderful.
One thing to note, the driveway is... read more very steep. While there is level parking for 2 minivans. You will scrape both the front and back getting in and out.
Great communication with the host from booking to check-out.
House location is great- quiet neighborhood and truly beautiful views of the lake from the windows and especially from... read more the back deck, dock, and pool. Quick boat ride to the new Blue Crab and Phil’s Marina Cafe- two favorites in Slidell. Beds are comfortable with great, clean and soft bedding. Decor is lovely. Kitchen well stocked with cups, plates, etc.
Great space for families or group of friends. Highly Recommend!!
Lisa's place is a lovely home on a waterway that leads to Lake Ponchatrain. The neighborhood is very quiet and the view of the sunset from the dock was gorgeous.... read more I stayed there for a long weekend with my parents and my four brothers. We each had a room and everyon had plenty of space. We especially enjoyed sitting outside on the deck in the mornings and evenings.
We got married in New Orleans, and stayed at this beautiful home. We had ourselves, our kiddos, and two of our good friends staying with us. This place worked out... read more perfectly for everything we needed, plenty of space for everyone never felt cramped, and everyone was spaced out nicely. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful, comfortable, well appointed! When we first pulled into the development and saw so many houses, we were worried about privacy. It was absolutely not an issue at all. We... read more spent most of our time on the amazing deck and enjoyed every second of it. Enjoyed the birds, the ducks and the mullet jumping. Enjoyed watching the boats go by. Very relaxing! Probably the best vacation rental we’ve ever used. And, Lisa is a very fast communicator which is so appreciated!
This is a great property! It was large enough for our group of 12 and no one felt cramped. Everyone was able to move about the home with freedom and... read more enjoy different sections of the property in peace. Access to a deck and water with fishing was a bonus. It was another great opportunity to spend time with those you're traveling with. Even if you don't fish, sitting outside was relaxing and the neighborhood is quiet. Communication with the property point of contact was quick and easy. All of our inquiries were addressed. I definitely recommend this property.
The accommodations were okay. The trash and refrigerator had not been emptied/cleaned. A few water stains on the ceiling. The outer exterior trim, eaves, and gutters are in need... read more of cleaning and/or painting.
Communication was less than desirable.
Listing the rules once, with a required acknowledgement and agreement was sufficient. However, the number of times the rules were communicated, in addition to being posted in the home was a little excessive.
There were more than twenty-five directives and/or rules. Specific and detailed (i.e. don't take make-up off with towels, no consumption of red juice, use of markers or crayons, all things that have the potential of staining the white linen). In addition to letting the exterior umbrella down and keeping the exterior furniture cushions under the covered deck, due to concern of care and specific interior temputure settings.
I asked more than three times about one specific item, the complimentary kayak that was listed as available. I went on to mention that this was the deciding factor in booking the home.
It would seem only appropriate to be as detailed and meticulous regarding communication about the condition of the kayak.
This item was dirty. There was stagnate water and slime everywhere. It was covered in algae. It had not been properly stored and was not in any condition to be used.
There is only dock access, no latter. Anyone using the kayak would have to launch from the dock. This is definitely not suitable for small children and tricky. In addition, the kayak that was provided was not long enough to be tied between the dock posts with what was left as rope.
We ended up purchasing inflatable kayaks.
the house was nice and spacious, quiet neighborhood with a gorgeous back porch over looking the water. just one downside was the leak that hasn't been taken care of next... read more to the front door. rain will come in and soak anything left on the floor nearby. overall a great place though
Great communication and service. Any issues we had Lisa took no time in responding and getting her time out to assess it. I would recommend this location to anyone.
Lisa was great and very easy to communicate with. Getting into the property was simple. The house was very well maintained and super comfortable. Thanks Lisa!
Lisa's home is beautiful. She is a great host and everything is as described. My whole family had a great time and worked perfect for all 14 of us.
This house was everything. It had enough bedrooms that everybody wasn’t on top of each other. Being able to rent the boat was an extra bonus. I would definitely recommend... read more this house I will be back.
Nice place but parking in the driveway was a pain. The driveway is super steep and I scraped the bottom and sides of my car every time I had... read more to park it.
Also, only 2 full bathrooms. If you stay downstairs you will have to go upstairs to use the shower or use the one in the other bedroom downstairs.
The location was great and the house was beautiful, well maintained and welcoming. The communication with the owner was good and the welcome letter and information sheets around the house... read more were helpful and very informative. My family and I truly enjoyed our stay.
The host responded quickly when contacted. The house is like the pictures. My only issue is that host wanted extreme care with her white towels but had no towels for... read more pool or boating. House was not stocked so bring all what you need. I had to buy pitchers and paper products.
There are bugs but host said it was the south. Maybe so.
Ok place to stay. Family had a good time.
Beautiful home! Lisa was a gracious host and the house was exactly like advertised. She was quick to respond to any issues that popped up and had it resolved fast.
Everything we expected, stylish, great location, great options close in slidell to Mississippi to New Orleans, great time had by all.
My wife and I recently stayed in one of Lisa’s properties. This was our first time renting with Airbnb. In light of the pandemic, we thought this was... read more a cleaner, safer option for us. The home was very well appointed and extremely clean. There are two bedrooms downstairs and three upstairs. Since it was just the two of us, we opted to stay downstairs. We had three major issues with our stay. Two hours prior to our arrival (one hour after our check-in time) we were contacted by Lisa. She wanted to let me know that the downstairs portion of the home was found to be warmer than normal and she was having an air conditioning company come out to assess the unit. When we arrived at 6 pm, the air conditioner repairman was at home. The house was extremely warm. After conversing with the repairman, we were made aware that the units in the home were old. He stated that “we should not have an issue, but to just contact him if it goes out again.” This concerned us to the point that we contacted Lisa to find out if a plan B existed. The best she could offer us is to maybe put us in another home that was still needing to be cleaned. Thankfully, the unit held up during our three-day stay. The next issue we had with the home was the following day. We were visiting for a funeral. The next day we were contacted by Lisa. She wanted to let us know that the owner wanted to pick up his trailer that was residing in the driveway. We told Lisa we would be gone after 5 pm due to the funeral. At 3:30 pm the doorbell rang. Two workers were at the door wanting us to move our vehicle so they could get the trailer. When I explained to them that we were getting ready for a funeral and would be leaving soon, they acted very put out when we asked them to give us a few minutes to finish getting dressed. About 15 minutes later another knock on the door. The gentleman said he was in a hurry and was trying to rush us out of the way. We left the home at 4:30 to attend the funeral. Lastly, at night we had a scare. When we set up in the room downstairs, we noticed that the air vent was closed. Well with the heat in the house, we opened up the vent. Apparently, the air vents make a high-pitched noise. We literally thought there was a wild animal in the house. Sounded like a possum in distress.
I want to address some of the other concerns noted by other reviewers. The home does feature a very steep driveway. We were in a Subaru Outback and did not have any issues but if you aren’t used to driving on steep areas it could be an issue. Also, the neighbors are NOT a fan of (Hidden by Airbnb) /Airbnb renters and they have made this known with two big signs located in the backyard of the property. When you set on the deck at night, there is a sign that says “ (Hidden by Airbnb) Renters Not Welcome”. Also, don’t plan on grilling. The grill was small and not clean.
You would think for $400 dollars a night, we would not have to worry about the air conditioner and working around the owner’s schedule. Other than that, the house was very quiet, clean and we had a good stay.
I would rent again with Lisa, but I would not rent that house again.
We had such a great time here. A great location and Lisa is always very quick to respond and help us out with anything. Would 100% come back.
Beautiful, clean, well kept, spacious, and great views of nature! My family loved staying here and would recommend to anyone desiring to live like a local in a great location.
