Casa del Sol is an elegant Mediterranean style home located on a secluded island at the edge of the city of Slidell. Historic Olde Town, fine restaurants, theaters, and shopping are minutes away, yet it feels as though you have escaped to a distant island far from it all.
Whatever your pleasure, be it canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing , fishing or just doing a little crabing, you can do it right behind our 230' dock. Bring your own boat and park it in our private boat slip. It's a 10 minute scenic boat ride down Bayou Bonfouca to Lake Pontchartrain . Along the way you may encounter wildlife such as osprey, owl, pelican, duck, nutria, gator and on occasion manatee. Two canoes along with life jackets and paddles are provided for your pleasure. If you just want to unwind and relax in private, the veranda is that perfect spot to sit back, perhaps read a good book and enjoy the sunset.
The den, dining room and kitchen are an open floor plan with large screen tv, stereo surround sound and an all glass view of the bayou. The master suite is completely private with a California King Tempur-pedic, stereo surround sound and private balcony over looking the water. The master bath has a sunken whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. The serene 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and sliding glass door for direct access to the veranda. The 3rd fun bedroom/office is complete with a trundle bed that converts to twin or king, desk and a view of the courtyard. The two bedrooms are connected with a Hollywood Bath. Each bedroom is furnished with a large screen tv and luxury linens.
We welcome you to our little piece of paradise we call Casa del Sol. As it says at our front door:

About Wendell and Sharon Lewko
Sharon and Luke met on a dive trip many years ago. We designed and built Casa del Sol after traveling extensively in the Carribean. Bayou Bonfouca is perfect for so many of our interests:kayaking, canoeing, fishing, crabbing, boating, seaplane flying and watching the sun set. Our love of travel is the reason we want to share this special home with you. While we are away our son Eric manages the property. He will be more then happy to assist you in your booking and can answer any questions you might have. We sincerely hope you love our home, bayou and town as much as we do.
Wendell and Sharon Lewko purchased this House in 1990
Why Wendell and Sharon Lewko chose Slidell
While only 25 minutes from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast casinos and beaches, Slidell has become an exciting, quaint destination. Casa del Sol is on a small secluded island at the city's edge, ensuring your privacy. Olde Town is minutes away with its festivals , restaurants and bars. Our guestbook will direct you to our favorites.

Peaceful setting with a surplus of amenities
Sharon and Wendell's place is absolutely perfect! The place is beautifully decorated with lots of room to spread out and offered plenty of parking for trailer, RV, and/or boat. The place was super clean and smelled good upon arrival. The kitchen and bathrooms were fully stocked with all the amenities of home, and then some! It was as if they thought of everything :). Also, the neighborhood is quiet and felt super safe. We had no problems leaving our boat parked in the driveway and unlocked. My favorite part about this place was our peaceful evenings sipping wine on the back patio watching the sunset over the water. We will surely be back to stay here again!
A great time at a great place!
This place is AWESOME! Me and my two friends enjoyed every moment of this place for our Wrestlemania weekend. We had plans to visit the town and New Orleans during the down time but due to the view and how great this place is we simply stayed around the house and enjoyed it just as much. Will definitely stay again!
We spent a fabulous week at this place!
The house and its surroundings are absolutely beautiful! Just paradise on earth!
Awesome vacation home!
We had a wonderful time on our Louisiana vacation. This home was well appointed and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, including the most beautiful view of the bayou! It was our first time to the area. The home is about 30 minutes out of New Orleans, so we were able to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter and surrounding area, yet also able to escape to a more peaceful, quiet retreat at the end of the day. The area is nice for walking and exploring, and we enjoyed an afternoon with the canoes, even spotting a couple of alligators coming out of hibernation - very exciting! Erick was easy to contact and responded quickly to questions. Our entire family loved the accommodations. We could feel the pride of ownership and the commitment to making sure we were comfortable and felt welcome. I highly recommend this rental property. Thank you for a wonderful visit!
A lovely place to gather giving thanks . Quiet, peaceful with beautiful views of God's creation.
Property was well maintained with more than adequate amenities to make a very pleasant stay. Panoramic view from interior, makes for an ideal gathering place even when the weather does not permit venturing out on the beautifully landscaped front and rear grounds.
For the sportsman, the lake was only a 10 minute run through a deep water bayou, and there is more than enough room to keep boat safely moored behind the residence.
We certainly enjoyed our stay and plan to add to our list of" will go again."
This house is beautiful, very well equipped, neat & clean, perfect place for a relaxing vacation.
We had the most enjoyable stay in your beautifully decorated home, both inside & outside. We appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and the patio furniture, the unique landscape in the back yard where we spent many hours chatting with each other. Our group of 6 very close friends of 50 years, meet once a year at different locations in the US. This house is among the top VRBO homes that we rented. Thank you for the welcoming bottle of wine. We highly recommend this home & would rent it again if we come back to New Orleans. A perfect vacation we all had.
