About the property

3 Bedrooms with large scenic views, sleeps 6, 2 &1/2 Bathrooms

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.

What makes this house unique

Complimentary canoe and paddle boat with paddles and life jackets. Private boat slip. Adjacent to home we have a large shaded area for leisure fun activities. Parking available in drive for up to 45' motor coach with 50amp electric and water hookup. The same RV electrical panel will also accommodate rapid charging for Tesla or comparable electric vehicles. There is also a private seaplane water landing strip and parking ramp in back designated La 38 on the aeronautical charts. Fly-ins are welcomed.

This home was as luxurious as the pictures. Amazing sunrises and sunsets! Even during the evening rain, this property is picturesque. DEFINITELY recommended. 25 minutes straight shot to downtown New Orleans!!!! The crab trap was missing but we purchased a new one and left it at the property for future guests to have as much fun with it as we did!!! Caught 8 crabs, a few catfish, and a few perch!!!!! Great family fun fishing the bayou, watching the boats pass, and the active wildlife(alligators included)!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a little slice of paradise and perfect for a vacationing family! The location is a short drive to New Orleans but a world away from the crowds, traffic and crime. My kids had fun fishing, crabbing and canoeing while I sat on the porch enjoying the breeze. The home is so clean and well kept and the grounds are beautiful. This is the perfect place to enjoy a Louisiana vacation! Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home!

Perfect quiet place to Relax!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay!! We were in town for a dance competition and this home was the perfect place to relax after a long day! Very quiet secluded and right on the water! Loved sitting on the back patio and enjoying a morning cup of coffe while watching a family of ducks waddling around!! Our girls loved the ping pong table downstairs! This place is perfect for the whole family! If you are looking for a perfect getaway that is close to New Orleans this is definitely the first choice!!

Peaceful setting with a surplus of amenities

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!
