About Dick and Peggy East

Retired Southwest Airlines Pilot and Music Teacher. We bought this home gutted after Katrina and rebuilt it with contractors and family help. We have five kids aged 24 to 33 and we wanted room for them and their friends. They are in Texas and on the West Coast and do not visit often. We thus decided to turn it into a short term rental and it has turned out extremely well. We have a second home eight minutes away and travel between the two houses. The home is extremely kid and family friendly. We try to make sure everyone has a memorable visit and of course strive to build repeat business.

Dick and Peggy East purchased this estate in 2010

All we can say is outstanding! We book the house for our family to have a home for a rehearsal diner

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need to have a home away from home! Very clean and well maintained. All rooms spacious , we had about 15 people and 2 small children. The kitchen has everything you need to throw a party or everyday living. We got to fish , play basketball, throw football and enjoy all the grounds. I want to thank the owner mr Dick East for all his help with contacts for rentals , catering, and just being a great friend to help the family to make a Big Bang for a rehearsal diner for our sons wedding!

Owner's Response: We also enjoyed very much working with Thomas and his family. Working with folks that know how to have fun yet are respectful of our property and neighbors is our dream. I have been coordinating and assisting in planning events such as family reunions, weddings, church outings, youth gatherings, you name it.....since the second grade. I am 71 years old and have seen a few rodeos in my day. We know the caterers, the servers, the rental yards, the restaurants, and places that can make your event a "Big Bang" as well. Group gatherings at our home have always been a huge success. Weddings and outdoor events with tent, chairs, or what ever you want can be accomplished at budget price compared to other choices. If you are even thinking about gathering at our home, give us a call or send us an email so we can give you ideas of how to make your event GREAT. Cell is 228-547-0286 Dick and Peggy East

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Mr. East was a great host and went over and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The property is very secluded which made it a great place to relax. We will be back!

The house was beautiful, plenty of space, and generous, responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great start to finish! Dick was very welcoming, and the house was beautiful! The property was also great for a group of ten guys! We enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, and the basketball goal! The space was excellent for hanging out, and plenty for sleeping! Had one small issue with a tub faucet, and dick offered to help with the issue immediately! Highly recommend for any group, or family! Will definitely go back if we visit the area again!

Owner's Response: It was one of the coldest New Years we have endured. We supply the "hospitality advice", two fireplaces, one fire pit, two BBQ pits, fire wood, and charcoal all to try to make your visit as "warm" as possible. Our family has been here for 92 years so we know the ropes and try to help folks have great visits and events in any way possible.

New Orleans, LA

Perfect venue for our group's needs and wants.

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfectly appointed for our group of 11 guys who get together once per year from all over the country to catch up, play poker, sit around the camp fire, cook and grill big meals, and all around comraderie. The house had plenty of beds for everyone (and then some). The owners had a welcome wagon of iced down beer waiting for us in an ice chest. There were plenty of things for us to do while we were there: pool table, camp fires (wood provided by owner), basketball activities, ping pong, sit by water, canoeing, and more. We are already looking at the calendar to book our trip for next year. Great place and great people to deal with.
