About Suzy

I'm born and raised in New Orleans. I currently work in New Orleans but live on the North Shore of New Orleans. My family (three children) grew up in this house until Katrina took it away. 8 years later, the kids are all in college, we live in another house but have just finished bringing this one back. We can't forget the wonderful memories, the great times or the tremendous ambiance of this place. So we use it when we can. But you can use it when we can't!! Don't miss out on the Bayou Moon from the rear porch. It is truly special..

Suzy purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Suzy chose Louisiana

We bought it because it was on the navigable bayou (5 mins to Lake Pontchartrain by boat), we could water ski, boat, fish, crab or just enjoy the awesome wildlife and nature that the bayou affords. We bought it because of the 8 acres (which we cleared and now manicure), and the 30 plus oak trees with Spanish moss, some of which are over 200 years old. We've played many football, soccer, and baseball games in the large fields. Drive a golf ball or fly a kite! We named it Bayou Moon, because for all its splendor, at the end of the day when you sit on the back porch and look up - you see this awesome moon reflecting on the bayou! This area is a historic Creole settlement that dates back into the 1700's. So after we bought it, we got to know our wonderful neighbors, many of whom are ancestors of the original settlers. FYI before we could rebuild this house after Katrina, it needed to be raised and we just completed this 'raise and renovate' six months ago.

What makes this cottage unique

There are so many unique features of Bayou Moon. The nature, the wildlife, the expanse of the acreage, the oak trees, the privacy, the water frontage, the water sports, the fishing and crabbing, the boat dock, the swimming pool, the house with its incredible views, the porches and decks, the gameroom but most of all the Bayou Moon!

It was a little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! It was perfect for our family gathering, both the grounds and the house large and open in an inviting way. The colors and decorations inside and the live oaks with Spanish moss outside were perfect. The place also just had a great vibe and Suzy was so nice the couple times we contacted her with questions. The pictures my fiance's family and mine took together there turned out really well, and the times we had were unforgettable. It was a great place to meet and bond and feel at home. My family lives locally in Slidell and the proximity was great for visiting, and his family was able to explore New Orleans and get back without too long of a drive. We are so happy that we got to make some memories here!

Wonderful getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the house and surrounding areas. Our kids enjoyed the pool and rope swing. The pictures of the house depict it very well. We traveled to New Orleans 2 different days and returned to Slidell and then dined at excellent restaurants nearby.

Great house, pool, and property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was celebrating several birthday's in the month of August, so we all got together at Suzy's place :). The house was very roomy with lots of space/room to spread out; we had 6 total adults and had plenty of room and plenty of bathroom space! We played in the pool and enjoyed the table on the back deck to have coffee in the mornings and lunch in the afternoon. We had a fun ping pong tournament as well, the game room was a hit! We really enjoyed our long weekend and it was a perfect fit for our family and celebration!
