A 1930s old country home. Grandpa built himself using wood from an old cedar barn and had this home constructed for grandma. Each piece of wood carried through the woods before any streets ever thought of. Lots of history. Ask me anything. :-)

Accès des voyageurs

Guest bedroom, shared bath, living room, porch and outdoor common areas. No kitchen access. 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. Complimentary Continental breakfast included with your booking just let me know in advance what time you will be up each morning. Breakfast may vary day to day.

Guests are never permitted access into my personal bedroom, my son's bedroom and the kitchen is off limits until further notice.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I'm here for you if needed and I enjoy getting to know a little about my guests but I also have a busy life as a single mother of a little one so I'm on the go allot. I love to chat and hear about my guests adventures, dealings with other hosts, foreign languages, or let's talk about Scandal on TV and I'm all ears.

Guests are never permitted access into my personal bedroom, my son's bedroom and the kitchen is off limits until further notice.

Autres remarques

This 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.

Sky was such a sweet heart, she showed the epitome of southern love.

Réponse de Sky :
Nabeel is a sweetheart. Please don't surprise future hosts with additional unexpected guests, text your host in advance of your arrival and pay for extra accommodations as you would at any other lodging venue. Yes, prices are increased during events like Mardi Gras, Voodoo Fest, Jazz fest, etc but always less than local hotels.

Réponse de Sky :
I woke up early Friday morning to a paid booking from Ryneil which was great except we were leaving that morning for a weekend camping trip and another guests had just checked out at 6am SD o there was no time to prep the room again for an incoming guest that afternoon as we were headed out that morning for a mini vacation. The guest couldn't have known that and I did not foresee someone booking the exact same say as a checkout that morning. I texed Ryneil from bed to inform him and told him to cancel and I'd give him a full refund. Airbnb would not allow him to cancel so I cancelled the reservation on my end, refunded him 100% and Airbnb penalized me for doing this so I loose any Super Host status and they charge me for the booking. I've been hosting over a decade and spoke to Airbnb by phone that I should not be penalized for this because I reached out to the guests as soon as my eyes opened at about 6am so guest had the entire day to book. He wouldn't have had anymore time to book because he booked a same day reservation which happened to be our vacation departure day. The guests was happy to get a full refund but I had to pay Airbnb before going on vacation. That wasn't fair.

The room is clean, small but comfortable, and Sky was a good host. We had a few problems though. She wrote on the description that guests are welcome in her kitchen, but once we got there she told us that she is not comfortable with guest using the kitchen. Also on the first night, we had to take an hotel because our flight was delayed, and Sky told us that she couldn't welcome us because it was too late (around 11:00pm). However, Sky is a nice lady and we had a pretty good stay, I'll recommend staying there!

This cancellation was due to a technical error and had nothing to do with Yutaka. Yutaka, Please try to make a new reservation and ask me for a Special Offer to make up for the glitch. I'd love you as a guest. I lived 1 year in Okinawa, Japan just north of Naha City at Camp Kinser while on active duty as a Marine. I loved living on the water, eating sobe, driving fast on the toll highway away from the traffic, drinking blue Hawaiians at the awesome night clubs, touring I.E. Island and learning local history. I'd welcome you as my guest. Kindly, Sky

Awe Shucks! :-) You guys were really super guests and are an amazing couple. I know that we will stay in contact and become good friends; lots of good times in our future. When Darren isn't working I will kidnap Yang as often as possible for some girl time to explore the city and go shopping. :-) You two are hanging with me and my friends for Mardi Gras. I'll text you details directly. Hugs, Sky and Chase

I had a great stay at Sky's place. Her and her son are both easy to get along with and really friendly. She was a very welcoming host and had some great suggestions on places to go both close-by and in NOLA. It was wonderful to hear about the history of both the house and the local Mandeville area. Sky was honest and upfront about what to expect during my stay. There were no surprises and the neighborhood was safe and convenient for what I needed on this trip. There are some good local restaurants if you don't want to make the trek across the causeway to NOLA and Mandeville has all the conveniences of a modern suburban setting. Also, there's a nearby state park and decent swamp and wildlife tours are a short drive away.

Hi,
I'm Sky and I'll be your host for this accommodation. I'm a seasoned world traveler, former Marine of 10-years, former Department of Defense civilian of 9-years. I've also worked in an engineering firm and taught as a school teacher for disabled, autistic, ADHD, special needs and benchmark kids.

I've traveled to over 20 countries, lived long term in 3 of them including Europe, Japan and the USA. I picked up German as a second language while living there 7 years/zeiben jahres! (Ich liebe Deutchland! Ich hat im Stuttgart, Hockenheim und Neckargemund gewohnt. Ich auch im Heidelberg arbeiten und im Uni gelernt. Aber, ich muss meine Deutsch mir uben.) (Lauchen)

After all my journeys I eventually found my passions; real estate and interior design. I own and manage a few corporate rental vacation home which I take joy in designing and leasing to business travelers and vacationers.

I'm a single mother of a very charismatic, smart and rambunctious school-aged little boy who keeps me on the go and entertained daily. As a fairly new mother and business owner you can imagine "busy" is my middle name. We travel often for business and socially. I enjoy an active lifestyle with business, friends, working out, swimming and mommyhood. I'm totally anti-drugs and smoking. There was a time in my life, if I had to choose an alcoholic beverage it would've been red/white wine or maybe just create it as its own food group.:-) Amazing how life, age and kids change you. Laughing.

I can be extremely OCD when it comes to cleanliness. It doesn't help that I'm prior military and a Virgo. It's my curse. I hope my professional housekeeping staff have replicated my standards as closely as possible in your accommodation.

Passions: socializing with friends, traveling abroad, gardening, home improvement, decorating, hanging out with my little one and learning. I like watching DVDs before bed if i don't pass out from exhaustion first like: TRUE Blood, Twighlight, Saw Dogs, Niptuck, Dexter or old reruns like Fraiser, Sinfield, Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, Two and a Half Men... However, my newest obsessions are Scandal and Empire.

If you catch me at home I'm probably cooking, working on my latest DIY project, digging in the yard or hanging out with my adorable 5-year old. However, the reality that you will most often see is my absence as I'm on the road allot. This is my little crash pad. I've designed it and made it comfy for people just like myself. You work hard and home is a place to relax and get away from the anxieties of the world. You want a clean, safe place to lay your head without the drama and without paying out the nose. I want mature, responsible, clean adults (25 or greater years old) to lease my accommodations and enjoy the spaces I've created. All private suites and entire homes come standard with extreme Wi-Fi, premium cable, fully furnished suites, kitchens, baths, new bedding, extra linens, TVs, DVDs, DVD-R, personalized spa and hygiene items on a supped up guest tray.

Yes, discounts available to anyone booking the same day of initial inquiry.

Christian home. No smoking, no tobacco use, no illegal substances, no pets and no weapons permitted inside or on the property what so ever. Any violators will be asked to leave immediately without refund.

Deposit requested prior to check-in. A copy of valid ID required to gain access to property; no exceptions. All guests sign a short-term vacation rental lease agreement.

I can't wait to host you and read your review. "The Sky's the Limit!"I
