“Awesomely Unique!”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We didn't want your same ole same ole hotel. Looked for places on the water, came across this. It was perfect! The master bedroom was at the back of boat, sliding doors opening up to a small deck. Two other bedrooms that would sleep three each. Two full bathrooms. Spacious living / dining / kitchen area. Supplies to the max! Plenty of condiments, shampoos, even shaving cream. The deck on top could not be beat. Did not take out the pontoon but it is so accessible, step from back deck onto boat and you are on your way. Owner could not have been more pleasant. We were met by Sabrina who answered all questions and showed us how to work TV / Internet. Highly recommended.

“No words for how amazing this experience was!”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

First of all, this was my first trip to LA and I am now officially in love. This rental was perfect for my partner and I to relax and get away and our teenager had a blast fishing and discovering all sorts of new wildlife. The rental was a bit difficult for us to find but we were late coming in. We stopped to get directions at a gas station and ran into the cast of Swamp People.
The folks managing the rental were very nice and available for calls and questions any time! The rental was clean and the accommodations were spot on!

So glad that you and your family had a good time! BTW, Swamp People is filmed in this area. The star, Troy, lives a 15 minute boat ride up the bayou, and lots of our guests go to Duffy's Gas Station where he hangs out. Hope you and your family return again soon!

“Made wonderful memories!!!”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I do reviews based on what I would tell my family/best friends....Well, our 3 grandsons were sooo excited when we arrived to surprise them w/a houseboat! Owners met us there & (bonus) took us for the 6 mile trip on the pontoon to fill it up!! Absolutely beautiful bayou...saw a bald eagle, osprey, gators, blue heron, cranes, etc. They let all 3 boys drive the boat & bought them ice cream at the marina!! Sweet, sweet folks! ## My one negative...the boat is not moored at the site where the picture was taken, so the side views are not pleasant, not as open as it is in the picture...but the back view on the top deck, lower deck, & master bedroom are absolutely incredible, so not a big deal!! The place is equipped w/everything you will need. We loved the barbecue & the hot tub!! Spent every evening there just talking about our day. We were comfortable & happy the whole time!! Linda is a delight & I have no reservations about recommending this experience!! Buy groceries, bait, etc. before you get there & you never have to leave!

Hi Debbie,

So glad that you and your family enjoyed their stay. Your grandsons were a delight--my husband especially enjoyed "supervising" the youngest driving--thoughts of our grandson enjoying the same experience in the near future! We appreciate your remark on the new mooring spot we are at. We have the side view of the houseboat at its original mooring spot so that people can see the size of the houseboat. At its new spot, it has houseboats on either side, but the unobstructed view off the top and back. People seem to like the new spot as it is closer to town and you don't have to go onto the gravel road for several miles as they used to:-)

Thanks again for your kind review! I do hope to see you again in the future!

Cheers,

Linda Hoagland
