The house is in a great location, very convenient to everything. The house was very clean and had everything you need for your stay. The back deck was... read more perfect every morning to enjoy my coffee. We had two couples and three children and had plenty space in the house.
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.
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 house was absolutely stunning!!!!!! Spacious and all the amenities you need!!!!! There is a friendly black cat that belongs to one of the neighbors that cone around... read more :). I’ll be back
Great stay, perfect for big family with kids. Lisa was very responsive and easy to get in touch with when needed.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Everything we expected, stylish, great location, great options close in slidell to Mississippi to New Orleans, great time had by all.
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.
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.
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.
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 place was nice and clean. It was very relaxing and the kids enjoyed fishing right off the dock. It was nice and peaceful.
My girl friends and I stayed at Lisa’s place and we loved it. Lisa is quick to respond, helpful, and the home is absolutely gorgeous. I would recommend this stay... read more to everyone!
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!
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.
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.
We had an excellent peaceful time with our family. High Tide is a beautiful home and you have everything you need. My favorite was morning coffee on the deck watching... read more the sunrise and the fish jump. Wish I was still there :)

Thank you for your hospitality. There was enough space for our large family. The grandkids enjoyed the property waterfront.
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.

Great space for families or group of friends. Highly Recommend!!
