This place is perfect! It was so good to be near NOLA but not in the crazy of it all. We toured all day and came back here to quiet... read more and relaxation. This place is quiet, comfortable and clean. I would stay here again. Lisa is great with communication as well. It take about 25-30 mins to get to NOLA from here for those wondering.
The only other side note I will offer is that if you are traveling with a walker it will not fit through the bathroom doors. My father is law managed just fine but someone who is 100 depended on this may want to skip this booking. Again this is just info not a judgement on the property at all. It's a great place!!!
The Windward house was perfect! The description of the home prior to booking is accurate, and Lisa was very thorough with expectations and recommendations. We had a total of 8... read more guests during our stay and we couldn’t have asked for a better retreat. The home was spotless, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals at home, no one ever ran out of hot water, and we especially liked the heaters in the bathrooms. The pool and deck area are gorgeous, and so tranquil just to sit out there and enjoy some time outside (unfortunately it was a little chilly during our stay, so we opted not to use the pool, but we so wanted to!). There was plenty of room, inside and out, to spend lots of time together, but also plenty of opportunity to have our own space and downtime apart from the rest of the group. We loved the location of this home too, because we had easy access to New Orleans/French Quarter, Airport, but also Slidell, the local swamps/lakes/bayous, as well as Mississippi and its beautiful white sandy beaches.
As far as other reviews had mentioned: we had zero issues with any neighbors (or signs), and the driveway was no issue for a full-size SUV nor a sedan.
I would highly recommend this home away from home, and would love to visit again someday!

The Blind Tiger was one of our favorite spots to eat and enjoy. The drive between Slidell & New Orleans was a simple commute and gave us quiet from the busy of downtown.

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.
I love to cook my only issue was the pots and pans that the home provided and mine were not compatible.
