Great stay
I would chose this home for the property manager alone. Great communication. Very attentive. Gave all the best recommendations on foods and activities. Slidell is a great treasure. The home was fantastic, location was close the everything yet had 100% privacy. Would highly recommend!!

5/5 Excellent

Fun Time
Lots of space inside and out! Having a pool allowed the kids to spend a great deal of time outside. While the grounds were beautiful, heavy rains prior to and during our visit made it difficult to get to the bayou area for fishing. The house was so large and allowed for our “crowd” to enjoy different indoor activities simultaneously. And Erick, property manager, was very helpful, responding quickly to our questions or requests.

5/5 Excellent

Enjoyed our stay
Our kids had a great time at this property. We were disappointment that the picture showed a slide and diving board but there were none when we got there

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Stay!
Above and beyond what we expected. The bar was our nightly hang out area and it had left over liquor and wine waiting there. The pool guy came twice to keep pool in check, and the chairs were relaxing to sit pool side. Any issues or questions Eric was very responsive and even came over twice to fix small issues. Rooms spacious, beds comfortable, and TVs and internet were up to date and fast speed. We were able to move tables and furniture around and make ourselves at home while there. Two grills and a deep fryer were under the house which made cooking food outside an option. Grounds were beautiful. Quite and private and no issues with neighbors or community. Felt safe! Easy to access stores and places to go in town. Only downsides to the house were no ice maker, no shower curtain on 4th bathroom, and it did get hot in some rooms due to lack of curtains. Sleeping in was tough due to the rooms upstairs being bright in am. Overall there was way more positive to say and it was such an enjoyable stay and Eric is an amazing friendly man who really wants you to enjoy your time at the house and area.

5/5 Excellent

Family Tradition
Love the property & pool. Close enough for the family to be together . Very easy process and very accommodating. Our 4th time at this property and hoping to continue our tradition!!
