About Tammy Alphonse

I am a life-long Slidell resident. My two children (now 30 and 26) grew up in this waterfront community and thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors in their childhood. This is our 3rd home in this neighborhood. I'm a Realtor of 13 years and have vast knowledge and experience in "rental properties." I have been a property manager and landlord and have rented our Allegro Tiffan Motorhome to individuals for their vacation needs and desires. I'm commitment to making this vacation destination the most fulfilling and enjoyable opportunity possible.

Tammy Alphonse purchased this house in 2006

Why Tammy Alphonse chose Louisiana

I just can't say enough about the GREAT times we've had with family, friends and guests. What stands out the most, is that everyone who has visited and/or stayed raves about just how relaxing and enjoyable it was! You truly feel as though you are in a little piece of a Tropical Paradise. What a wonderful way to get away!!!

What makes this house unique

Some of our unique benefits are…plenty of covered areas for leisure and social times, pool, Lake, bayous, docks, boat launch, boat house and lift, in-house bar and movie theater with surround sound inside and outside. Bring your own boat or rent one and ski/knee board/cruise right behind the house in Palm Lake. Our vacation home is fully stocked with top notch stainless Steele appliances (5 burner stove/oven, side by side refrigerator, dishwasher and full size microwave, granite countertops, cookware, crawfish pot and burner, fish fryer, fishing poles, crab traps, bicycle, kayak, swimming pool toys, floats, towels, sunscreen, paper products, seasonings, blender, toaster, coffey pot, Egyptian cotton linens, plush towels, cleaning supplies, cards, dice and so much more!

Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

We have booked many places through VRBO, and I never would've guessed that a rental right down the street from my own house would be one of my favorites! The house was super clean and set up perfectly for our family. I enjoyed just sitting out by the pool or on the dock watching the kids swim....oh, and the master bed was SO comfortable...need to find out what mattress they had! My husband thought the back down ramp was so convenient to put his boat in the water. My kids loved the movie room the most...only request from them was they wish it had a DVD player set up in there (we found the one in living rm but no wires). Everything else was PERFECT...wish we could have stayed longer! Very relaxing weekend--hope to book again next summer!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so happy that y'all enjoyed your stay. We wish we could put the DVD player in the movie theater too. Unfortunately the Bose system doesn't allow the hook up. Trust me we tried!!! Looking forward to having you and your family back anytime. Tammy

Beautiful Home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Slidell. The location made it easy to get to NOLA for day trips and had everything we needed to spend lazy days at the house. My wife loved the "Jumping" fish!

Perfect place for a family retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a wonderful time at the property. With so much to do, there was never a dull moment from swimming in the pool to kayaking in the lake to fishing.

The house has everything you need and then some.

The decor is tastefully done and we felt right at home.

Thank you for such a wonderful time.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The home was well kept, clean and had everything we needed. The owner was super attentive. My family of six were all very pleased. It was also easy to find and very conveniently located. I can't imagine any reasonable person being disappointed staying here.

The best vacation home ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation home ever .... a little paradise .... from the theatre room with stadium seating, to the pool with bose speakers outside to play music, boat ramp, pier and boat hoist, the pot to boil seafood and then the extra room which is bar with game table. Bring your food, clothes, soap and shampoo and you do not need to leave till check out time. Thank you Tammy for letting my family enjoy your home. Bonnie C.

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5

This house and property are amazing! We have nothing bad to report, we had such a great week. The decor, the pool, the lake, the bar, the master bedroom were all more than we could ask for. We rarely left the property except to go out to dinner, it was just too enjoyable, we didn't want to miss a minute. The kids loved the media room also! Thank you Tammy, we plan on returning soon!
