About the property

Very spacious home on the water with beautiful sunsets. 30 min drive to the FQ!

Welcome to the Majestic Lake House New Orleans! 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/Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, 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:

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 (king mattresses) and each has its own full-size bathroom.

*On the second level, there are two bedrooms (with queen mattresses) with a shared bathroom. We also have 3 full beds on the loft.

*All bedrooms have cable TV.

-There is a dining table that seats up to 8 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 and a daybed.

*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.

About Diana Ullo


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.

Wish we would have more time

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for the delay in writing this review on this amazing property. The home was so big we all had our own rooms, many with their own bathrooms. The living room was so comfortable and the kitchen was big enough for many cooks and well stocked with appliances, spices and other items in the pantry and refrigerator. We loved the convenience of the washer and dryer and elevator was such a help.

We saw beautiful sunrises every morning. We even saw dolphins swimming. We just didn't have enough time to enjoy the house we were always on the go.

Diana was amazing. Any time we had questions she got right back to us with in minutes.

The only draw back was driving to and from New Orleans. But relaxing on the back porch looking at the water made up for the drive.

We hated to leave. We would love to come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm glad y'all enjoyed yourselves! I understand not wanting to leave. Haha! I can lay on the day bed on the back porch all day. :) Have a great day. Diana

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Went to New Orleans with a big group we hardly wanted to leave the house. Diana was very quick to her responses and willing to help out if something arose. Would stay there again.

Many issues with the house and dock are in need of repair.

  • 2 of 5

House issues.

1. Fan and shower in at least one bedroom does not work and AC vents do not cool this room (in suite next to pass).

2. Stove remains a problem with unworkable burners and disconnected bottom door.

3. Holes in the walls that we noticed in previous visits still not repaired.

4. Bottom post on staircase not connected properly.

5. House alarm system goes off intermittently.

6. A number of the bed mattresses are very lumpy and uncomfortable.

7. Electrical outlet in room opposite pass looks shorted.

Dock Issues

1. Boat lift not functional. (Major problem as this is used on every trip)

2. No hoses outside for use in fish cleaning or other cleaning activity.

In general, there seems to be very little reinvestment in the house to keep it from falling in disrepair.

Owner's Response: With all of our guests I welcome open dialogue and encourage you to call, text, or email me at any time per the note on the refrigerator. That being said, I was made aware of these issues after your stay. I would have appreciated it if you disclosed it during your stay so that I could make it right as soon as possible. I’m sorry that your stay was not to your expectations.

The House was Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of friends who travel together every year. This year New Orleans was on our list. The house was absolutely perfect for us. We were able to see the sights in the city and still be able catch a few crabs and fish from the dock! We had a crab and shrimp boil one night! Played cards a few other nights and were out and about on the others. Great house for friends and family to gather!

Nice home for a large group, good location for accessing I-10, to New Orleans

  • 4 of 5

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.
