(Note: Hurricane Issac destroyed my gazebo working to restore) I'm available to offer as much direction or advice as you'd like and with a little notice wouldn't even mind showing you around or dropping you off at a local spot. We are only 5 minutes from the Causeway toll bridge to New Orleans and total about 40-45 minutes from downtown New Orleans and Bourbon Street. Pick up from and to airport may be possible for an additional fee $60 with advanced notification. Can't hurt to ask as my mom always said. Hope to see ya soon. "Las sie les bon temps rouller!"

Feel free to walk around the grounds, pick pecans or berries from the trees when in season. The famous St Tammany Trace is only feet away or a 1 minute walk from the house. It spans for miles all over St Tammany Parish. You may bike, walk or run under the beautiful canopy of tall pine, oak and wild trees while enjoying the silence and beauty of nature. This really is one of those best kept secrets. Kitchen access restricted until further notice. Interaction with GuestsGuest may have as much or little interaction with owner as you wish. I'm here for you if needed but also have a busy life as a single mother of a 5 year old so I'm on the go allot. Guests are never permitted access into my person bedroom. Or my son's bedroom. The NeighborhoodNeighbors quiet everyone kinda keeps to themselves but we all give a wave coming and going. They work during the day and in by early evening. This is a small one block street so everyone knows each other and we jeep an eye on one another a homes. I will get a phone call if anything looks odd... Neighbors, gotta love'em for better or for worse. :-) Getting AroundYou can walk pretty much anywhere in town. Ole Mandeville isn't a big place but the heat will probably keep you in your car during the summer months. Warning! Get prepared, summers in LA can be brutal do we rely on AC. :-) There are a couple bike rental companies near the trailhead and a taxi service. Car recommended but not necessary if you are staying within the Mandeville area. Other Things to NoteThis is Louisiana and we are surrounded by trees so bring your allergy meds, bug spray, sun screen, bathing suits, appetite, extra cash for eating out and souvenirs. Two very impressive gyms are nearby. You can pay for a day membership for about $15 to go swimming and workout or go to the lakefront or Fontainebleau State Park about 5-10 minutes up the road and swim in Lake Pontchartrain for free. Weather permitting you can grill in the backyard or grab a few beers, make a barn fire and sit out in the lawn chairs while enjoying nature. Remember, in Louisiana we say, "if you don't like the weather just hang around for about 15/20 minutes and its sure to change." Thanks for your interest in my listing. It is a very quaint and comfy home. That means small but comfortable. However, it's an easy 40 minute drive into downtown New Orleans across the scenic Lake Pontchartrain bridge which happens to be the 3rd longest bridge over water in the world. Do you like trivia; guess where the other two are? Additionally, holiday and special event prices are always a little higher than off season. Mardi Gras and New Years Eve in New Orleans always draw large crowds so visitors tend to plan very early to get in or near the French Quarters or Bourbon Street to see the Baby New Year get launched from on top of Jax's Brewery it see the parades pass down Cabal Street. The weekly holiday and special events rate is $300 + $35 housekeeping + online booking fees or daily rate of $89 per night + $35 housekeeping fee + online fees. The room is booked on a first qualified and first to pay basis. The kitchen is off limits to guests during the holiday season as my frig will be full of holiday goodies and I will be preparing holiday meals. However, I have no problem serving you coffee or tea with toast or preparing you a home cooked meal for only $5. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing your booking but if not I wish you the very best and hope to nee you on your next stay.

The SpaceNo smoking. No tobacco use. No pets. No drugs. No criminal activity. No felons. No shoes worn indoors. A kids room with full size bed and 42 inch TV. (TV Out of Order right now) Filled with my child's toys. Please do not remove. Room located in rear of home next to the kitchen. There's an AC in the window and a space heater and gas stove for heating. I can give u a drawer in the he dresser or just put ur suitcase on top of the dresser. Floor unleveled so if that's a problem don't book this space. No closet space for guests so if that's a problem don't book this space. This is an old country home not a new or renovated subdivision so if that's a problem don't book this space. Clean sheets and restroom. Guest may watch TV in living room or kitchen. Wi-Fi and Cable with HBO, CINEMAX and Showtime available as of Oct 29,2016 available on selected TVs. Guests will always receive fresh clean linens for their stay and a bedside nite stand with convenience items. Again, since this is a kids room it does not come with closet or dresser drawer space. You will have a place sit your luggage on the floor or on top the dresser. I have portable hooks if you need to hang clothing behind the door. Guests may park on the street in front of the house, in the driveway when no other guests are at the house or in my overflow parking area in the far back of the property. No covered parking available. This room has a door that closes but does not lock. If that's a problem please do not book this space. Short term guests will not receive keys to the house. Call or text me and the door will be unlocked for you. Keys will be given to any long term guests. Guest AccessGuess have access to this room, kitchen, dining, living and bath. Interaction with GuestsAs much or little as desired. The NeighborhoodQuiet dead end street in the center of town right off the famous St Tammany Trace, walking distance yo the main road, bars, shops and eateries. Also about a 1.5 mile straight walk yo Lakeshore Drive. Great location. Approximately 10 minutes from Fontainebleau State park. Best kept secret in town. Getting AroundWalk, bike or drive. Mandeville is a very small city with a Mayberry feel. There isn't any public transit system but taxis/shuttle services are available. Other Things to NoteChristian home. No smoking. No tobacco use. No drugs. No pets. No profanity. No weapons. No theft. No criminal record. No paedophiles. Any violation of these rules will lead to immediate termination of your stay. At this time no keys will be given to the house for this listing. Guests may come and go from 6am to 10/11pm with only a text message or call to the host with about a 15 minute heads up and the door will be opened or left unlocked when needed. This is not a listing for young people who want to party all night and come in and out all night because I can't sleep hearing the door open and close all night and this could also make other guests feel uncomfortable. For potential guests needing this flexibility to come and go all night this is NOT the listing for you. I'm a single mother with a small child and will not leave the door open all night and will not have intoxicated people in and out of the house at 3am disturbing myself and others. I would suggest those who are looking to party all night in New Orleans and drag in after midnight not to choose this listing as it is family oriented. This kids room door will close but not lock.

It is within walking distance to several restaurants and small shops; however, it is necessary to have a car to get to the main retail area of town, or to drive 35 miles to downtown New Orleans. Getting AroundRestaurants and shops are easily walkable or bikable from the house, but having a car makes it easier to get around town when necessary. Other Things to NoteBecause the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, guests should keep noise and activities at a respective level at all times.

              The SpaceOutdoor backyard. No shelter. Ground: grass, dirt and sand. Near the road and walking distance to town. Walk to the St Tammany Trace in 2 minutes. Five minute drive to the Causeway bridge ($3) toll to New Orleans. Two outdoor tent potties discretely tucked away behind tree line. One tent has a hospital potty chair with bucket underneath and a bucket with lid. It also has a basket for your accessories. The other tent potty has a bucket with lid and a standing wicker shelf and black nylon basket to hold your toiletries. I also supply 1 roll of TP per tent potty and inside each bucket is a bag of cat liter. There will be an extra bucket of litter and scooper inside each tent to cover new deposits and a roll of garbage bags to line the buckets. Once the initial courtesy supply is exhausted it's the guest's responsibility to replenish supplies. Remember, this is an outdoor rural listing to experience camping close to the city. Please come prepared with all of your essentials but if you forget something the neighborhood store, Walgreen's, Walmart and the DG are all 5 minutes or less from the camping location. It's perfect!
