Wow! Did we get lucky picking this place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the privileged of staying at this wonderful house this past weekend. It is impeccably decorated. The information before hand and in a nicely put together visitors guide was so very helpful. This house is really a special place. We definitely got lucky picking this house. I cannot imagine there is another as great as this. I almost did not book it because others mention it is on a busy street, and yes it is, but that can also be a very good thing. It is very easy to find, easy to get to and have access to other roads in order to do some sight seeing. We drove 12 hours from Austin Texas and we were so glad to find this house right off of the main road. Other reviewers have reported that there is "road noise" and there's no denying that if you have a house situated on a busy road that there will be some noise. But there is some noise everywhere you go no matter where the house is located. I found that with my noise machine, that I travel with because I need it no matter where I stay, I was not bothered by the road noise what-so-ever. The way I look at it is that this house is so exceptional, that I can overlook that one small negative. I didn't spend my vacation in my room, so it's really a moot point. I do think you should bring a sound machine and the owner's would be wise to make these available at this particular house, but once you get there you'll see that they have thought of everything else! There are so many extras!!

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great experience! Great place to get away and relax. The house is very nice and beautifully decorated. We loved sitting out on the balcony and looking out over the bayou and enjoying the scenery and wildlife. Also, crabbing off the dock was fun. Everything necessary for crabbing or fishing is available there for you to use including cooking pot and propane burner to cook them. A good time for the whole family!

Beautiful home, relaxing, beautiful sunset views!

  • 5 of 5

This home is 30 min away from New Orleans and is a peaceful retreat to return to after sightseeing. The owners have provided every convenience and the home is spotless. The mattresses were so comfortable and the outdoor hammock was a great place to watch the sunset. This will be my go to home away anytime I am in this area. I would also like to mention Cajun Encounters in Slidell. We took the late afternoon swamp tour and had the best time with Captain Dan. Our best meals out were also local area restaurants in Slidell also. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

10/10 Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I could not be happier with our stay. Pirate's Cove is beautiful, clean, and convenient.

The preview pictures are 100% accurate. All rooms are spacious and comfortable. The view on each side of the house is great, plenty of animals.

The home owner's (Judy and Bruce) are friendly, and answered all our questions immediately.

We used the supplied crab traps and fishing poles and caught (and released) a couple dozen blue shell crabs, a dozen catfish, a gar, and an eel in one day of casual fishing. Also to note, we did not experience any alligators that lost their fear of humans, which means people haven't been feeding the gators around there - a problem I've experienced in Florida.

Lastly, the house's location in Slidell was convenient for traveling. It's just a short ride to the highway and several restaurants. I highly recommend checking out the Creole Bagelry.
