Property description

Hello and thank you for viewing our summer home! This home is owned by my grandfather (Ray) and is managed by me (Diana).

Whether you stay at our home or not, you should Like and Follow us on Facebook (and Instagram)! I post upcoming events, concerts, and festivals in the New Orleans area. I also post pictures and information regarding the lake house itself.

Here's a video tour of the home: https://youtu.be/bRH59z0-_po

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 30 minute drive to the Big Easy!

The house:
-Our home is located between Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Borgne on the Chef Menteur waterway.
-This is salt water with dolphins swimming right by the dock!
-It is a 2-story raised home with 3,600 square feet of living area and a great view of the water.
-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 are 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms!
*There are 3 bedrooms on the first level and each has its own full-size bathroom.
*On the second level, there are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom. We also have two full beds on the loft.
*All bedrooms have cable TV.
-There is a dining table that seats up to 10 people.
-We have a large kitchen island with 3 stools: perfect for breakfast or extra seating during meals.
- Our card/game table has 8 seats and has a covering if you need more space for dining.
- The home has a foosball table, card and board games.
-The entire back wall of the living room is windowed, so you can see the dock and water while watching TV (cable in living room, too).
-The back porch is 440 square feet and has 2 swings as well as multiple chairs.
*It's my favorite spot to watch fish jump, hear the ducks quack, and catch a beautiful sunset. You can also watch the shrimp and crab boats pass, 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 YOUR OWN PROPANE TANK. 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! There is a half bath located in this garage area.
-We take a lot of pride in making our home your home! We provide the linens, bath towels, shampoo and conditioner, toilet paper, paper towels, and so much more!
-We decorate for all major holidays, but we can also decorate for your special event! Be it a surprise wedding engagement, birthday, family reunion, etc.! Just let me know when booking!

Our own private dock:
-There's room for sun bathing, fishing, crabbing, and a swing if you want to just watch the water (or sit and fish).
-The fishing is great, especially from August to November. **You will need to bring your own fishing gear, or you can hire a fishing guide/charter who has his own gear.
-You will catch red fish, trout, flounder, drums, catfish, and many other kinds of fish!
-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 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 are two boat slips, so bring your boat and jet skis!
- The dock also has a jumping platform that the kids and adults really enjoy!
-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.
-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.

Car: Recommended

We are just a 30 minute drive to New Orleans and the French Quarter: Garden District, Museums, Mercedes Benz Superdome, Smoothie King Center, World Famous Restaurants, Convention Center, Aquarium, Insectarium, and the Zoo, just to name a few.

There's deep water fishing 10-15 miles away by boat.

One of the city's best bakeries is a five minute drive away.

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!

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 and I now work in the French Quarter! 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 Lake Catherine, New Orleans, LA, USA:
This location was ideal to my family for many reasons. It's close to the Mississippi gulf coast if you want to go to the beach, it's close to New Orleans if you're interested in the culture and/or nightlife, the fishing is great, and the area is so quiet and peaceful.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Want a care free vacation? That's what I will provide for you! The only things you should have to worry about are bringing your luggage, bringing a propane tank if you want to grill on our grill, and buying groceries. I provide you with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, pots, pans, spices, linens, bath towels, the list goes on! On an unrelated note (but also an amazing benefit) previous guests have reported catching a 24 inch red fish right off of the dock! It is truly a fisherman's paradise.
