This place was amazing. We had a group of 11 young ladies and staff who were doing a mission trip to help with some of the churches with damage from... read more Hurricane Ida. We had lots of space and bathrooms for everyone. Lisa was a great host and got back to us quickly if we had any questions.
Great house. Great pool. Great deck. Great dock. Great location. We enjoyed our stay - it was great!
A very clean, comfortable, and quiet place to relax with easy access to New Orleans. Lots of outdoor living space, and the pool is a huge bonus if you are... read more traveling with kids… or not. We stayed with two families and had plenty of room to come together inside and out. The host was very detailed and clear in communication; we would definitely stay again.
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.
One hiccup at the very beginning and they responded promptly and addressed the issue. Outstanding visit - appreciate it very much!
The space offered nice sleeping arrangements for a large family group. We really enjoyed the outdoor area. The deck was large and offered a lot of seating. ... read more The rooms were as pictured and the host responded promptly to messages.
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.
Home was Clean, well maintained, with excellent water pressure. The neighbors signs were a nice conversation piece but not to worry we never saw them for them to be rude.... read more The kitchen sink has a hot water button for making cocoa or sanitizing pacifiers so that was amazing!!!! Watch out for the steep driveway you need to take it at an angle for sure! Great place we would book again gladly!
Amazing property! Lisa’s was a wonderful host. This property had a great view. Much bigger than what we expected. Felt like a brand new home with lots of amenities. We... read more can’t wait to go back!
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!
First time to stay at Sea la Vie and would definitely return. The property was awesome and house was exactly as described. Thank you Lisa for an excellent experience.

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.

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!!!
House in optimal location to visit city of New Orleans but still able to enjoy water related amenities.
This is a wonderful home with a beautiful back patio view. The set up of the home is just amazing also the brick painted walls.
