Sportsmans Retreat in Paradise! Bayou Bungalow near New Orleans Sleeps 10

Lakefront Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
Whether you want to visit the famous French Quarter, walk the beach on the gulf coast or fish, hunt and crab to your hearts delight; this is what you've been searching for! Located in Pirates Harbor in the Rigolets off Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Borgne, we are only a 30 minute drive to visit Bourbon St or the beaches and casinos of Mississippi. From the large front deck you will enjoy the scenic views of Big Branch National Wildlife Refuge while you watch the sunrise over the marsh. The evening will present you with breathtaking sunsets from the rear deck. Launch your boat at the Rigolets Marina which is about 2 miles down the road. Dock your boat at our dock or fish and crab right from the dock. Camp Reel Estate sits on a scenic bayou that is a short 15 minute boat ride out to Lake Pontchartrain. The camp is a fully furnished 2 bedroom and 2 bath home with a large upper loft - the home sleeps a total of 10 people in beds. Our waterfront home has all the amenities of your home plus some things you might need while you enjoy your stay in our little piece of paradise. We provide a burner, boiling pot, propane grill, crab traps, fishing poles, pedal boat, kayak, plus all you will need in the kitchen to cook that pot of gumbo or fry up those fish you catch! Fish at night off of the dock lights or just relax in the bayou breeze. Of course there are also some great nearby restaurants for you to dine if the fish don't cooperate :).
Be sure to visit Olde Towne Slidell along with the quaint shops and restaurants. Check out their event calendar for their annual festivals which are sure to please. Fremaux Center is a great shopping and dining area and is only about 4 miles away. There are 4 grocery stores nearby also so don't worry if you forget to bring something!
Most importantly you will enjoy the serenity of the bayou breeze and the sound of the fish jumping, birds chirping and yeah you may see a gator or two in the wildlife reserve across the highway. We have TV and free internet but chances are those will be the last thing on your mind. There's also a tower speaker so bring your music to plug in.
We want to share our dream and little piece of paradise with you. We look forward to having you as our guests.

Great experience.
Great place to stay

Reel Estate PARADISE
This place was amazing! I loved being able to enjoy Bourbon St and The French Quarter(only 30 min away), but not having to stay in the busy area. It was peaceful coming home to a cozy night of fishing after a hectic city day. Everything we could ever need was provided! Only thing we needed to buy was bait and food for the fridge. My only regret is not planning a longer stay to enjoy the house more! Next time we’ll be using the kayak and peddle boat for sure! I loved the personal touch of Siobhan texting me to check in and ask if we needed anything else. I’ve never had a host be so welcoming and personal. It truely felt like I was staying at a friends house, not renting one from Vrbo. We had ages from 3 years old all the way to 50 staying and there was something for every one to enjoy!

5/5 Excellent

Awesome place!
The house was very clean and just as listed. Our children didn't want to leave to go anywhere because they enjoyed the fishing and crabbing so much. Would definitely stay again!

5/5 Excellent

Had a great time relaxing and fishing. The place was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. Our hosts were fantastic.

5/5 Excellent

Great place for a few days on the water
Our family enjoyed our recent visit. The property was very clean with plenty of space for our group of 8. Enjoyed sitting on the dock, grilling and time by the water. Awesome neighbors. Couldn't ask for a better stay.
