Here's a video tour of the home: https://youtu.be/wcmZImfL2uo
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!

About Diana Ullo
Hello! My name is Diana 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, purchased 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!
Diana Ullo purchased this House in 2001
Why Diana Ullo chose Lake Catherine
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.
What makes this House unique
Want a care free vacation? Well, you've come to the right place! 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.

Nice home for a large group, good location for accessing I-10, to New Orleans
We loved the ability to have each bedroom with bathroom for our group. The common area was perfect for eating, sitting around having conversations, playing cards,etc. Sitting on the porch was enjoyable as long as the breeze was blowing. Elevator really helped in moving our gear upstairs.
Exceeded all expectations!
We rented this place as a get away and just had a wonderful time. Things that we enjoyed include but are not limited to:
Wonderfully stocked with misc. items that were very useful.
Comfortable sleeping arrangements for 11
Dock and Backyard (mostly the jumping platform :-)... Many backflips were done off it )
Overall this place cannot come highly recommended enough. Thank you Diana you were great! Whenever anything was needed she was quick to answer.
The Majestic Lake House was a beautiful house. It’s has plenty of room for big groups, it’s clean, and close to downtown NOLA. I highly recommend it.
The house is beautiful!
We had a group of 10 with plenty of room for us all to move around comfortably. The house is a Perfect size for groups! We also fished the whole weekend and caught catfish and blue crabs. But in my opinion, the best part of the whole stay is how welcoming they are. From the goody bag, the pens and car tags, providing crab cages, the calendar with upcoming events, and our favorite was the labeling of all the light switches lol. Once you're at the house, everything else just seemed so easy and just fell into place. Loved it loved it, and would definitely come back and recommend to others. Plus, we saw dolphins EVERY DAY! In the late morning and early evening!
AMAZING HOME!! GREAT TIME!!
Our group of 14 had 4 wonderful nights at the Majestic Lake House...
Plenty of space for us all and the location was right next to the water.. great for fishing or just hanging out!! GREAT walk in pantry with lots of items for guest use!! Elevator was very useful to bring luggage/grocery up to the kitchen/main level..
The loft with the bunk beds was a hit with the kids..
Diana was very helpful with any questions we had..
50th birthday celebration
This property has the most amazing sunrise and sunsets we got to see dolphins it's just so relaxing to sit on out on the back deck the house was nice and big for us. Couple things needed some TLC the stove,a few holes in the wall and some lights out but overall the property was perfect I definitely recommend renting a car unfortunately there's nothing around that's close. Diane is amazing to work with. I would definitely like to take a family vacation here it was worth it.
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!
