Accommodations were outstanding and Captain East excelled in hospitality. He goes over and beyond what would be expected from a VRBO owner.

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

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.

Kindness with a catch!

  • 1 of 5

First off this is a Beautiful house! There is plenty of space and beds, owner stocked a cooler with drinks when we arrived, there was plenty of extra food in the pantry for our use, fire wood for the fire pit outside, etc..

My husband and I felt so blessed to have found this place for our church's youth retreat, every year for the past 6 years we have had retreats to fortify friendships and get away and enjoy ourselves. We do not drink, smoke, or party, however we are young adults and we enjoy music and outdoor activities, and this home was not ideal for groups like ours. Owner has speakers in the first floor but will send you lengthy messages if your music is a "potential " threat to neighbor's peace even though we were inside with all doors closed at night and he had asked us to keep the volume no higher than 40 and we kept it on 30!!

We also had people constantly coming in and out of the house so of course we had difficulty keeping the downstairs doors closed at all times, owner was very upset because the AC was on and the doors were seen opened a couple times. We also rented a water slide and utilized it only after 10 am each day and only up until 6 pm in the afternoon but were met with complaints about our noise, even though we had NO music outside just laughs and screams of excitement as we played on the slide. The owner also complained about the slide potentially stunning the grass because it had been in the same place for two days, he complained about the children wetting the house, even though we swept and mopped daily.. The owner will come to the house EVERYDAY and maybe in the evening as well to complain and check on you. If you have a group of people who would like to quietly rest this is the ideal home for you!! However if you want to unwind and have fun, listen to music, or have teens/children, I think youd better look elsewhere! The owner's obsessive concern with the house will keep him messaging and calling you your entire stay , even though we left the house swept and mopped, removed all trash, removed all pillow cases and bed sheets to try to make it easier on the house cleaner and left no dishes , the owner still called me days after we left to complain and say we werent welcome in his home anymore, this is not a rental home, it's his personal home and you will bother him unless you let him be a live in tennant and follow his rules.

Owner's Response: Our goal is to provide an exceptional home for large groups to gather and to provide outstanding customer service. We also have a goal to provide outstanding service to our neighbors by insuring they are not unduly annoyed by loud music. Weddings and outdoor parties are briefed with the neighbors before they occur and we have experienced very few problems with one of those large events and in every previous event, if we asked that the music be turned down, it was. We actually have a Noise Aware monitoring system in the house which notifies us if the noise level inside the house is above 70 decibels (rock concert level) for extended periods. We received seven alerts in three days. We did in fact text, email, and verbalize politely many times requesting the music be turned down. There were several times where the volume went down but then it came back. We eventually informed the renters that if we received one complaint from the neighbors they would be evicted. After the renters left,I contacted the neighbors and they commented that they could hear music on and off all weekend which was "mildly annoying" but they did not complain because they had recently been making noise remodeling their house. The neighbors also stated that they had commented to each other that hearing the kids playing outside on the slide was refreshing as so many kids are buried in their phones these days. They also commented that they enjoyed the group singing "church songs" outside on Sunday morning. When the renter did not return my phone call after departure for 36 hours, I stated that I would go by their church and speak with their pastor about several issues. She texted me his phone number. I called him and I explained that his group was not allowed to come back because of excessive loud music. I explained that his group had paid for 17 guests and stated directly to me that their were only 17 people in the house. When I explained that I found a roster they had left with room assignments for 25 people and that it appeared that they accidentally took our volley ball and soccer ball when they loaded up their sports equipment, he agreed immediately to pay the additional charges for the extra people and to pay for the missing balls. When the pastor (who in a second phone call revealed the renter and chief chaperone was his daughter) clearly understood that his group had behaved quite differently than others, he said he would talk with the adult chaperones
