    -- THE PROPERTY --

    Master Bedroom: King | Bed | Bedroom 2: King Bed | Bedroom 3: King Bed

    When you stay here, you'll quickly discover why New Orleans is called the city with no cares. With unlimited parking space and all the comforts of home in this child-friendly property, you'll want to bring the whole family.

    As soon as you arrive, you'll immediately feel at ease in the beautiful interior, boasting a fully equipped kitchen with a glass-topped stove and stone countertops.

    With 2 enormous king-sized beds and another queen bedroom, there's plenty of space for you and the rest of your travel party to stretch out. Not to mention, there's also an additional pullout bed under the sofa that sleeps an extra 2 people comfortably.

    Additionally, the owner of this home owns another 3-bedroom house capable of accommodating 12 guests, located just down the street, allowing for a delightful retreat for multiple families.

    One of the bedrooms has an en-suite with a shower, but the whole family is going to want to spend a little time in the main bathroom, which features a deep soaking tub - perfect for soaking away the stresses of everyday life.

    If you need some downtime, the flat screen Smart TVs in the bedrooms and living room will give everyone in the family the chance to watch their favorite shows.

    Though the interior is delightfully inviting, you won't want to spend much time indoors! When we say this property has amazing views, we're not kidding. Not only does the home have a lakefront view, but it also has water views on both sides! From the front door of this New Orleans home, you can look out over magnificent Lake Pontchartrain or lounge on the spacious back deck to enjoy the view over the lovely Lake St. Catherine.

    In anticipation of how much you'll want to be outside, this property offers 6 deep-cushioned patio chairs and a few footrests so the whole family can gather around to watch spectacular sunsets over the water after eventful vacation days. You don't need to limit yourself to looking, either – walk just a few steps down to the private dock to enjoy boating, fishing, crabbing, jet skiing, swimming, waterskiing and plenty of other thrilling water activities. There are even 10 crab traps situated on the pier for crab boils!

    -- THE LOCATION --

    All the stories you've heard about New Orleans are true: you'll find phenomenal jazz, unparalleled cuisine and the festivals and carnivals that legends are made of.

    This dwelling is located near Village de l'Est, where you'll discover delicious Cajun food at Vucinovich's, soul food from Two Sisters 'N Da East and Mexican at Burritos Grille.

    Great Lake House away from the city

    Reviewed by: andrew v. on


    This house was close enough to enjoy all of the NOLA experiences, but far enough away to relax in piece and quiet. The house is cute, updated, and has nice furniture. The Lake view is fantastic with excellent evening fishing using live local bait! The dock is a nice touch, but needs some new boards as the weather is deteriorating the boards. The communication with the owners was great and we didn?t have any issues during our stay.

    Booked this home for the weekend, and the only thing that I?m disappointed about is not booking it for an entire week. We will definitely be back at this property. So much to do within this house. Perfect for cooking with a beautiful open plan and huge windows overlooking Lake St. Catherine. Kitchen has every utensil needed. House had fishing rods and crab nets that are sure to feed you good. Yummy crabs. There is a few boards while going out to the dock that need to be replaced but other then that it?s a beautiful place. Comfortable beds. Location is perfect. Just make sure you get all your groceries the first time because Walmart is about 25min away. Thank you for letting us spend an amazing weekend in your home.

    Best decission we made

    Reviewed by: Kimberly K. on


    When we decided we were going to vacation in New Orleans we wanted to make it an experience. This property was exactly what we were looking for. The house was perfect and the lake was beautiful. We spent most nights fishing on the dock and everyday caught about 12 crabs from the traps that were set up. I think there were around 9 of them. Fresh crab all week!!! And dont forget the beautiful sunset and sunrise every morning and evening. It was a short drive everywhere. We visited the French Quarters, 9th Ward, Bay St.Louis, cajun encounters, pit bulls and parolees facility, shopping, ferry boat ride, and more!!! The owner of the property, Whitney, is amazing. She is in direct communication with you and she will make sure your stay is perfect. I cant say enough about how happy we were and how the house was the highlight of our trip. We will definitely be back.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Island Highrise! The home was clean and beautiful and stocked with anything you might need for a lake vacation! When we weren't out enjoying the sights and sounds of Louisiana and Mississippi, we were right at home on the dock, fishing and crabbing. We even enjoyed a seafood feast with the crabs we caught! One of our best vacations ever, and we can?t wait to return and do it again!!

    Highly recommend this wonderful lake house.

    Reviewed by: Louis M. on


    My wife and I spent nine days here with our sons (2 year old and 3 month old) and my wife?s mother. We had one of the best vacations ever. The house is clean, neat, spacious, and well-appointed. Whitney, our contact person for the property, was wonderful to work with throughout our trip. I had been to New Orleans before, but never traveled much outside the city. I highly recommend experiencing the eastern lakes region. The house is situated on a beautiful stretch of Lake St. Catherine approximately 40 minutes from downtown New Orleans. It?s an easy drive, which we made on a daily basis. The house is elevated to protect from floods. There are about 26 stairs to the top, but there?s also an elevator. The elevator is a bit intimidating to use at first, but we quickly got comfortable with it. The house has a large dock that stretches out quite a long way over the water. Again, initially a bit intimidating, especially with two little children, but we quickly got used to it and spent a ton of time out on the dock with our kids fishing, crabbing (I counted eight crab traps), taking in the sights (pelicans, herons, lots of other wildlife) and the absolutely gorgeous sunrises. We caught sixteen crabs, which we boiled and ate (so fresh and delicious!), as well as numerous fish (the catfish was literally the best I?ve ever eaten). I think the location is perfect. We traveled west towards New Orleans and enjoyed Jazz Fest, Audubon Zoo and Aquarium, River Walk, walked through the French Quarter, and ate amazing food in the city. We traveled east towards the Mississippi state line and went on a swamp tour (Cajun Encounters - highly recommend), beautiful marina and seafood restaurant in Slidell called Phil?s, and we ultimately made our way into MS to a little town called Bay St. Louis. This is a must if you stay at the house. It took us just a tad over 30 minutes to drive there. Gorgeous, huge, white sand beach right on the Gulf coast. The town is filled with restaurants, oyster bars, antique shops, cool little boutiques, and lots of southern charm and hospitality. It was probably the highlight of our trip. Overall, we had one of the best vacations ever and are looking forward to visiting again.

    Reviewed by: Cameron P on


    The crickets sounded wonderful, and there are so many stars at night. The hubbub of the city is left behind and all we had to do was relax and enjoy this amazing property. The "lake for a backyard" is pretty amazing. My two boys bought some fishing rods from the local Walmart, and when we weren't out attending Mardi Gras parades, we were enjoying fishing and the excitement of baiting crab traps for dinner. I enjoyed a few glasses of wine on the large and beautiful veranda, but make sure you use some bug spray. Whitney, the owner is awesome , she actually had bug supplies available for us, and all the fixings for a lovely holiday including coffee, extra blankets, cozy dishes and a beautiful kitchen to prepare a meal should you want to to stay in. The drive is a bit more then half an hour to New Orleans, but it was quite an eye opener seeing parts of Louisiana, not from the view of the French Quarter but, from more of a local and, realistic perspective. I have 5 kids ages 6, all the way up to 15, and if they weren't outside investigating the water and rocks, they were playing games together, or watching as much tv as they were possible allowed. This is well worth the booking.

    Great family retreat!

    Reviewed by: Robert S on


    I lived in New Orleans for 20 years so it's always special to return, especially with my family, who did not grow up in New Orleans. This home made it even more special, it is everything anyone could ask for. Right in the middle of Slidell and New Orleans and seemingly in the middle of nowhere. The lake views were fantastic the fishing was great ( we caught red fish, drum, stingrays, Croakers, catfish, flounder and a couple others we didn't identify) and the crabbing was even better. This home was modern and had all the features necessary, a fully stocked kitchen with a great assortment of pots pans and dishes, three smart TVs, washer and dryer and extremely fast Wi-Fi. I will always remember the great views of sunrise and sunset and a long private walk over the water. The homeowner/hostess gave you your space and at the same time was very attentive, when needed. The home is set up perfect for the entire family, very cozy well organized and clean. No worries about the stairs when it comes to ice chests and luggage as the cargo lift is a savior. Just make sure you schedule more than a couple of days because a couple of days will not be enough and you will not want to leave. Thank you for a great time! *Originally posted on VRBO September 2016

    New Orleans - Lake St. Catherine Lakeview Home

    Reviewed by: Bruce J. on


    We rented this property for a week to attend Jazz Fest and to explore New Orleans for the first time. The house is located about 35 miles East of New Orleans on Lake St. Catherine. As most house on the lake, this one is 20 feet in the air! We were pleasantly surprised to find a freight elevator that we could use to transport our luggage up to the house! The three bedrooms served us well. Each had a king sized bed with comfortable mattresses. If you're short, you'll need a running start to get into the beds as they sit quite high off the floor! :-) The house was clean and well furnished, with a full kitchen and laundry room. We were very relieved to find that the home does have central air conditioning although not mentioned in the property description. The back deck was perfect for gazing at Lake St. Catherine and the long walk out the dock to the boat launch deck was worth it for the view! Be careful, the dock does not have hand rails, so it is important to look straight ahead, and not at the water or you'll get disorientated and wind up in the water! Luckily, nobody fell in, but rails would be comforting. Being so far from New Orleans, you'll need a car to get back and forth. The highway is very simple to navigate and we had no problems finding all the sites we wanted to visit. The well water is not drinkable, so you'll need bottled water for your stay. As I mentioned, it is 35 miles from the French Quarter and this is both good and bad. Good - you get away from the city and enjoy the beautiful lake view. Bad - you do spend an hour for the trip into and back from the city. Access to the house is by keypad and the owner contacted me prior to our arrival to give me the code. Good communications gave us confidence in our rental and the owner was available for any questions we had. Very responsive! You will be please with this house as it has all the amenities necessary and is clean and up to date.
