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.
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.
We were really pleased with our rental. The house was huge and well organized. The driveway was difficult on our bumpers as other renters stated. The included kayak was a... read more nice touch. The neighbors signs in the backyard saying his displeasure with renters was very off putting.
Nice renovated place with a nice deck! The two rooms upstairs were a little smaller than I thought. We enjoyed the deck when it wasn't too hot outside. There was... read more a kayak which was nice to use it in the canal!
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
Lisa’s space was perfect for the whole family ! Bunk beds for the kids and big comfy beds for the adults . The outside space was amazing and so peaceful!... read more The house was stylishly furnished with too many extras to list !
Spacious and clean. My Tahoe bottomed out driving into the steep driveway. Neighbors had offensive and rude signage displayed about the rental property, however the neighbors were friendly when encountered.

Mostly roses and maybe a couple thorns. Overall it was a lovely stay and property, and we would totally book again. This is really a 4.5 rating and can... read more easily be a 5 for other guests if host decides to address the thorns.
1. Loved the laminated checkout guidelines that were easy to find and follow.
2. Loved the decor.
3. Loved the patio design and generous outdoor seating.
4. Good entertainment options and apps on the smart TVs.
5. Overall great location. Excellent access to highway.
6. Appreciate that there were multiple games for guests to choose from.
7. Well equipped kitchen for guests who are serious about cooking dishes like gumbo.
8. Loved the laundry and that there was a mop sink.
9. Not many fish in the waterway, but having a fishing pole was a nice touch (smile :)
10. Would absolutely book again in the future, and recommend it to family and friends.
1. Light in upstairs bedroom closet.
2. Garbage disposal is essential and needed in kitchen where there will be lots of cooking
3. Toilet paper holder in upstairs bathroom was loose.
4. Reverse one of the bunk beds such that the ladders do not face each other. The current configuration forces use of only one ladder at a time which makes it tough for guests when that room is fully occupied.
Thank you for your hospitality. There was enough space for our large family. The grandkids enjoyed the property waterfront.
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.
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 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!!!
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.
