Great place! Would stay again!
The Milky Way is a great place to stay! The location is central to the Island, so very close to all Grand Isle, has too offer! The Beach is just steps away from the house, very easy access to the water! The property is adjacent to a public beach access, so it was fun to talk with everyone as they came and went, very friendly! The property has all you will need from TV, multiple refrigerators (freezers & Ice), pots & pans (boiler/fryer), utensils, plates, cups, and several other! The grill needs to be upgraded, only one burner seemed to work and the grates needed a good scrub however, we were able to get our food cooked and it was great! Overall, great place, don't hesitate to book if you want a great place and location!

Wonderful Cottage on the beach
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Milky Way. The house is spacious and perfectly located right on the beach. The amenities are above and beyond what you may need or want. The Toups were very responsive and offered to answer any questions.
We have been going to Grand Isle with our kids and their spouses for the last few years and I think we have found the perfect place!
Amazing tucked away little gem
This spacious house was perfected located for our family vacation to Grand Isle. Beach access, marina and restaurants were all so close but still enough distance to be secluded. The view on the back deck was spectacular with the sound of the waves made it all so relaxing. This property is where we will always stay on our future returns.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We really appreciate the condition in which you left our house. It would be our pleasure to have you as a guest again in the future!
Perfect Location with the public walkover right outside our door. Great Upper and Lower Decks .
House was exactly right size for three related families. Wi-Fi would be a nice addition along with more Direct TV channels. However we came to enjoy the beach and caught enough crabs to eat every night. The guys in our group went on a Charter and returned with enough redfish to feed the entire clan. A couple of small issues were addressed swiftly and the Toups are lovely people to deal with. Enough seating both inside and out including both upper deck perfect for beach watching. Hope to return next year from St.Francisville, Louisiana
GREAT PLACE TO STAY AND CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!!
THIS WAS OUR 2ND STAY AT THE MILKY WAY. THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE WE WILL RENT IN GRAND ISLE.
Loved the Milky Way!
We loved the Milky Way, it was perfect for our family. Loved sitting on the deck and watching the shrimp boats and dolphins. Had the beach pretty much to our selves. We cooked out and had a fish fry, all the right utensils provided. Loved having a washer and dryer in the camp. Only complaint was fishing could have been better.
