    Description

    2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 900 square foot beach front cottage elevated on piers. Great location to view the Gulf of Mexico, watch the shrimp boats from the living room, sit on the deck and feel the warm gulf breeze. Totally remolded and new furniture in 2009.

    Location

    Car needed yes
    Car available no

    Only 2 hours from New Orleans, Grand Isle has 7 miles of public beach and two state parks. Its a natural haven on the most popular barrier island off the coast of Louisiana. Unspoiled by high rise hotels and heavy tourism it still retains the local Cajun culture.

    Lagniappe! (pronounced  LAN-yap) a Cajun expression meaning "a little something extra". The island has free events and entertainment scheduled on most weekends. Fishing tournaments and marinas host free live bands, from classic rock to zydeco (Cajun music). Yes, they do dance here!

    Activities: sunbathing, beach combing, crabbing and fishing. No boat, no problem! Fish from the beach, bay, bayou, or bridge.  For deep sea fishing, charters can be arranged at the local marinas for a fee.

    Food: Local restaurants serve hamburgers to seafood platters. Oysters on the half shell and a ice cold beer at Artie's Pub. There is a grocery store on the island that has food, fishing supplies, alcoholic beverages and souvenirs. If you want to have a crawfish boil or shrimp boil we have the boiling pot & burner to give you the real Cajun food experience. All you need is a sack of live crawfish from Golden Meadow (a town on the way down to the island). You can buy fresh shrimp, just off from the boat at the docks there too.
