Great stay, perfect for big family with kids. Lisa was very responsive and easy to get in touch with when needed.
Heads up!!! You definitely won’t be disappointed everything is very accurate! And it definitely felt like home away from home! Enjoy!
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.
This was the perfect gathering place for our family and grandchildren. The mornings and evenings on the deck overlooking the water were precious. This is a lovely home... read more with a spacious interior, well-maintained and clean. We were very pleased with the hospitality and accommodations.

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!
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!

Wow! It really sums it up. I wanted a get away for my family that lives locally. They host all of us every time we come into town and I... read more wanted to make it a vacation for them as well. This home gave us exactly that! The amenities were perfect. We really loved just being there all together! Location is close to everything. What a beautiful property!
Great communication and service. Any issues we had Lisa took no time in responding and getting her time out to assess it. I would recommend this location to anyone.
The house was amazing and had an amazing view. We unfortunately had to leave early due to hurricane Ida and Lisa was very understanding about the situation!
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.
Lisa worked really hard with us to get us into a place last minute . She was available when we had questions. She touched base when we got there... read more and when we left. Good experience!
We had a lovely time at Lisa's house in Slidell. The layout of the house was perfect for our family gathering. It was modern and clean, with... read more lots of amenities.
We enjoyed the patio every morning and evening and appreciated the quietness of the neighborhood. The boys loved fishing off of the pier. Being able to rent a pontoon right from the house was very convenient.
Lisa was very communicative and easy to contact with questions.
HIghly recommend. Would stay here again!
House in optimal location to visit city of New Orleans but still able to enjoy water related amenities.
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.
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!!!
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.

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.
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.
What a great location and a great house. This house was perfect for my family getaway. We got to sit out on the back deck and BBQ while taking in... read more the amazing view. The house was very clean and spacious! It came equipped with all the necessities we needed! It was an amazing stay I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking to stay in New Orleans.
