Beautiful property in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 ppl stay at this property for 3 days. It fit everyone comfortably and even had room to spare! We took an Uber to New Orleans when we wanted to go out. But the cost split between everyone for the uber was minimal. I wish the house was stocked with more toilet paper, paper towels, and garbage bags. We had to run our and get more, but other than that everything was absolutely perfect! We will recommend this house to other large groups!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

You know you've made a good choice if you would rather be at your vacation rental more than exploring the town. This home was so comfortable and modern! My family loved every inch of the house. Honestly we were expecting a typical lake house with creeks and cobwebs but it really wasn't like that at all.

As great as our stay was, the home was about 45 mins away from the fun stuff like the french quarter and about an hr away from plantation museums. We had to plan our outing keeping in mind that the home was not close by. With that being said, we didn't mind the drive because at the end of each day we all went to our respective rooms closed the door and slept in peace and comfort.

Only downside: The TV in the second bedroom wasn't working or connected to cable.

Fishing, crabs, and tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, quiet home with excellent views if the canal and nice boat pier for fishing. We caught 40 blue crabs in the traps provided and grandchildren had a ball although we kept a very close eye on the kiddos due to the baby alligator chirping! Very convenient location just a block from Rigolets marina.
