About Suzy

I'm born and raised in New Orleans. I currently work in New Orleans but live on the North Shore of New Orleans. My family (three children) grew up in this house until Katrina took it away. 8 years later, the kids are all in college, we live in another house but have just finished bringing this one back. We can't forget the wonderful memories, the great times or the tremendous ambiance of this place. So we use it when we can. But you can use it when we can't!! Don't miss out on the Bayou Moon from the rear porch. It is truly special..

Suzy purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Suzy chose Slidell

We bought it because it was on the navigable bayou (5 mins to Lake Pontchartrain by boat), we could water ski, boat, fish, crab or just enjoy the awesome wildlife and nature that the bayou affords. We bought it because of the 8 acres (which we cleared and now manicure), and the 30 plus oak trees with Spanish moss, some of which are over 200 years old. We've played many football, soccer, and baseball games in the large fields. Drive a golf ball or fly a kite! We named it Bayou Moon, because for all its splendor, at the end of the day when you sit on the back porch and look up - you see this awesome moon reflecting on the bayou! This area is a historic Creole settlement that dates back into the 1700's. So after we bought it, we got to know our wonderful neighbors, many of whom are ancestors of the original settlers. FYI before we could rebuild this house after Katrina, it needed to be raised and we just completed this 'raise and renovate' six months ago.

What makes this cottage unique

There are so many unique features of Bayou Moon. The nature, the wildlife, the expanse of the acreage, the oak trees, the privacy, the water frontage, the water sports, the fishing and crabbing, the boat dock, the swimming pool, the house with its incredible views, the porches and decks, the gameroom but most of all the Bayou Moon!

Beautiful, quiet and peaceful setting!

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described. It was well stocked with kitchen items and linens. Clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay there and it felt like a “home” rather than just a house away from home. Everything was in good working order and clean. I would definitely recommend this house to any family looking to get away and relax with the kiddos! Thanks, Suzy, for the use of your home and seeing to it that it is well stocked and clean!

Very well kept and clean.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very large with plenty of room for guests to comfortably gather in the same spot or to spread out and enjoy peaceful time away from others. The property is beautiful and the pool is extremely refreshing. Would definitely book this home again and highly recommend it to others. Suzy was great to work with!
