Slidell house description

There's always a reason to party in New Orleans; be it Mardi Gras, St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, or just because it's Tuesday. Luckily for you (and for us!), our summer home is only a quick 25 minute drive to the Big Easy!

If you've never been to New Orleans, here's an example of how amazing our city and people are. Here are some of our police officers dancing during Mardi Gras 2014: http://youtu.be/RdlvdbysdTw

JUST A HELPFUL TIP, THE BEST SEASON FOR FISHING IS IN THE FALL (AUGUST-NOVEMBER)

Whether you want to live it up and see the beautiful city of New Orleans, or enjoy a quiet lake view at our summer home, we have what you want!
In addition to this, our home is the perfect place to create wonderful memories. It is located between Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Borgne on the famous Chef Menteur waterway. This is salt water with dolphins swimming right by the dock! It is a 2-story raised home.

We decorate for each Holiday. We transform the inside into a lovely Christmas Holiday Home. This is a special place to spend a Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday.

Our vacation home has a private dock that is ready for swimming, fishing and crabbing. There are two boat slips, so bring your boat and jet skis! The dock also has a jumping platform that the kids & adults really enjoy!

Everyone can enjoy the dock, there are swings in a shaded area or plenty of area to sun bathe or fish! The fishing is great, especially in October and November. **You will need to bring your own fishing gear, or you can hire a fishing guide/charter who has his own gear. Red fish and trout!

There are 4 sinks with running water located on the dock to clean your hands or clean your catch! Crab traps provided!

There are plenty of 'night' lights on the dock. You can fish all night! The lights shine right on the water to attract bait fish, so night fishing is really great! There is a half-bath located in the garage area, no need to go upstairs for a bathroom!!

We recommend and provide life jackets for all swimming activities. Please check with us to see if we have the size and number of jackets you may need.

The house is over 3,600 square feet of living area; the view of the water is lovely! We have wood floors, stainless steel appliances, washer and dryer and so much space. The floor plan on the first level is open to the kitchen, dining, and living area.

There is a dining table to seat up to 10, a card/game table (with cover can seat 8 people as dining area), a foosball table and board games. The entire back wall of the living area is windows; you can see the water where ever you are on the main floor. A television with satellite and DVR are located in the living area.

There are 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms! There are 3 bedrooms (3 queens and 2 kings) on the the first level, each has it's own full-size bathroom; each bedroom on the first level has a a sitting area. On the second level, there are two bedrooms with queen-size beds and a shared bathroom. We also have bunk-beds and a queen blow-up mattress in the upstairs loft area. This is the perfect place for the kids or 2-3 couples. All bedrooms have Satellite T.V.

The back porch is 440 square feet. There are two swings to sit and enjoy the beautiful view. You can watch the shrimp and crab boats pass, dolphins swim and watch your friends & family on the dock.

The lower level (covered garage area) is the perfect area to boil your seafood or use the stainless steel propane grill. You will need to provide the propane for the grill. We provide the propane burner, boiling pot and cooking utensils for boiling or frying your seafood! There are plenty of lights in this 2,000 square feet-covered area! The half bath is located in this garage area.

If you want to bring your boat and/or jet skis, there are two boat launches within a mile. We have two slips for your private use located on our private dock.

We take a lot of pride in making our home, your home! We provide the linens, towels. Our home is clean, beautiful and has lots of room for fun.

*Our summer home sleeps 14 (two people on bunk beds and two people on a blow-up mattress across from the bunk beds), however, we do charge $30 per day, per person for a group larger than 12 people.

Historic Fort Pike is minutes away. Crab bait, live bait are both available and very close. Fishing charters are available and will pick you up at our dock! Only a 20 minute scenic drive to Slidell. You'll pass Fort Pike, stop and look. Biloxi is just 45 minutes away. We have a guide to local (and famous) places to eat...there are so many!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: Hello! My name is Diana M. Ullo and I am the manager of renting out this beautiful home! I was born and raised in the suburbs outside of New Orleans. I love this city so much that I attended both high school and college here! My grandfather, Raymond, who was blessed with a large family, built this home so that it could accommodate our whole family. It's like a second home to me, and I know it will be a second home to you, as well!

              Why the Owner Chose Slidell:
              As soon as you see the water, the house, the dock, the bedrooms, the kitchen, you'll know you have arrived at a special place. This is a lovely home for creating a long-lasting memory. Perfect place for a group to gather with so much space and entertainment from mother nature and a hostess that loves to decorate and entertain! This location is the best of both worlds; New Orleans and the water! It's so simple to drive into New Orleans even into Mississippi.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our lake home is easy to love. Come see why. Winter Spring Summer and Fall.
