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.
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.
Lisa’s place was amazing! We had a work trip and stayed here four nights, the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and all the rooms had stylish decor. ... read more Bathrooms well stocked and water pressure was amazing! Lastly even though we only used two of the four bedrooms the mattress was very comfortable and there were plenty of pillows to accommodate even the pickiest of sleepers! We would definitely stay here again.
The house was very clean and well kept. It is in a beautiful setting by the water. We spent a lot time outside on the deck and checked out nearby... read more restaurants. It’s about 1/2 hour drive to the French Quarter and so we went into the city most days.
Beautiful and peaceful house with all you need. We had a great family time and the kids enjoyed fishing and playing in the water. We will totally be back again.
We had a great stay, house was perfect for my BIG family. Perfect location for what we wanted to do without being in a hectic area. Best place to have... read more a calm evening after running around downtown.
Cozy home on the water. Great for fishing and kayaking! Kitchen had everything we needed to cook full meals. Beds are very comfortable. Upstairs shower has amazing water pressure! Don’t... read more hesitate to book!
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!
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!
We came to NOLA for several birthdays including my 90yr old Gma, 60yr old mom, 40yr old husband & 65yr old mother in law. The location was perfect for... read more our crowd. 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. Thank you for helping create a special memory. We enjoyed sitting in the waterside deck watching fish jump & listening to the birds chirp. The house was immaculate and hospitable.
Truly confused as to how this is labeled as a super host ...
The cleaning crew left all of there garbage and took up the only garbage bin, so... read more we had no place to put our garbage for the entire week.
The house is beautiful, the location is lovely in a nice residential area. It has a nice kitchen and large space for entertaining and relaxing both indoor and outdoor with great natural light and views.
4pm check in ... with no opportunity to check in earlier or drop off our bags. We tried to speak to her well in advance about this to no avail. The cleaning people were still there past 4pm and were standing outside smoking while they waited for a load of wash to be done despite it being after our check in time. Checkout is at 11am...
Lisa did not respond, not to emails, not to airbnb messages, not to phone calls, not to texts. She was absolutely impossible to reach. The one time she did respond was solely Bc she was sending additional information regarding the key code to get in and other rules she had. She didn’t check in during the stay she didn’t respond even after arrival.
Safe neighborhood BUT it is not the 20/25 minutes she says in her description. It is a 35 minute drive from the city without fail, even driving fast.
The fact that the host left a hefty list of things you can’t do “no red punch allowed, neighbors will call cops, do not make noise outside on the deck at night, no music after 9pm and etc” and could not be reached at any point before or during the stay was absolutely unacceptable. I love staying with airbnb for a variety of reasons but this was not alright.
Phenomenal place. Plenty of room and great outdoor area. Pics are a bit misleading - definitely no boat included, albeit the description states this, just not sure why pics of... read more a boat are included in detail.
A great visit and appreciate it very much.
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.
Fantastic. If there were a word better, I'll use it. The experience was phenomenal.n Beautiful and very clean home!
House in optimal location to visit city of New Orleans but still able to enjoy water related amenities.
I love to cook my only issue was the pots and pans that the home provided and mine were not compatible.
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.
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!
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.
Great stay, perfect for big family with kids. Lisa was very responsive and easy to get in touch with when needed.
