The Greater Eden Isles / Oak Harbor statistical area is
generally referred to as those unincorporated neighborhoods bound by I-10 to
the east and by Hwy. 11 to the west; Lake Pontchartrain to the south and the
City of Slidell to the north.
The Eden Isles / Oak
Harbor area was originally all Eden
Isles. Following financial problems with
the developer most of the undeveloped portions were purchased by Oak
Harbor and other developers.
Land access is via Oak Harbor Blvd.
and Eden Isles Dr. either by I-10 or Hwy. 11. They all share a privately owned
common waterway canal system subject to the same tidal and storm surge
influences. This includes Oak Harbor,
Clipper Estates, Eden Isles and Lakeview Dr.
Virtually all of the home sites are waterfront and have deep
water access to Lake Pontchartrain and onward to the Gulf
of Mexico. These home sites
have water rights allowing the construction of private docks and the right to
store private vessels thereon.
