|Property type||house boat|

INSTANT QUOTE assumes that you only want to book the minimum number of rooms. Additional rooms can be added at a rate of $50 per night when calling to book your stay. Just mention the bedrooms you will require access codes for.
Once booked, you have exclusive rights to the entire property though you will only be granted the access codes to the rooms you have rented. Again, this is not a shared type of property so any unbooked rooms will simply stay locked and go unoccupied.

In an attempt to make the house boat a great value to any size of group, all bedroom doors have been equipped with digital locks. With the locks I can create a smaller, 2 bedroom houseboat, out of a 4 bedroom houseboat and rent to a larger market.
Under-promising and over-delivering are keys to a great business. With that in mind you will not be able to book your stay online. With rate specials and incentives for returning guests; I can only assure you that you are getting the right price and the best price for your group when you call. I return most calls within 30 minutes if I cannot answer right away.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!
It is moored just 70 yards south of the Venice Marina Restaurant and Fish Board against the parking lot but yet it allows for easy access to all Mississippi River Passes and all hot spots for fishing, hunting or diving.
Our House Boat is freshly updated with 4 Bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Holding a total of 14 beds (some twin and some queen size) it can sleep 18 in beds and a couple more on the couches.
The kitchen has 2 coffee makers, a microwave, fish fryer, 2 sets of pots and pans with matching dish-ware, glasses for the whole family and a dishwasher to help with it all.
The living room has a chest freezer, washer and dryer hidden away around the corner from the surround sound, satellite TV, leather couches for 12 and a beverage cooler.
The dock has a 500 lbs Commercial Ice Maker on an 800 lb ice chest, Gas Grill, Propane Seafood Boiler, Cleaning Station and Bench Seating and Folding Chairs to sit back and relax.
The place is well equipped but bring your own toilet paper and paper towels to be safe.

My housekeeper keeps the place very clean. She needs exclusive use of it on change-over days between 12 noon and 4 p.m to do so. If the cleaning ladies are done with it prior to 4 p.m. the guest will be notified of an early check-in availability. No late check-outs are allowed without a manager's approval out of respect to the housekeeper's schedule.
I have been fortunate to have been introduced to fishing Venice by friends and have been coming here since 2011.
My father and I have been avid sportsmen our whole lives. When he told me that he was selling his business and that he would like my help to find a place on the water, I knew just where to take him.
Cliff Robison purchased this house boat in 2014
This may seem strange to some of you (especially if you haven't experienced it) but renting smaller house boats located along the main thorough fare of the marina may give you the feeling that you are on a boat. The location of the Fishy Alibi property has less exposure to the wake put off by the other boats coming and going. I would contribute the solid feeling of it to it's sheer size as well but, whatever it is, I don't feel like I am still out on the water when I am staying in the Fishy Alibi.
No more hauling the wagon back and forth! That haul takes time and energy that is better used settling in with a drink my friend. The Fishy Alibi's position against the parking lot has many other advantages as well like walking to and from the store, bar and restaurant are easy, short trips. Get your fish on the board, walk home to get what you need and back to the bar in 7 minutes.
I like the number of rooms and guests have said that having 2 bathrooms alleviates a lot of issues with larger groups in the morning trying to get out fishing.
Here in Venice you can fish year round, 24/7, a great place to shoot ducks, geese, rabbits, wild hogs and even deer. You can fish for bass, red fish, speckled trout, tuna, marlin, dolphin and you never know what you might see on your way out. It's common to see Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Mola Mola, Turtle and Sperm Whales.
You and your dad have a great place down in Venice. Outstanding accommodations and location. Hope to rent from you again in the near future.
I have stayed at the Fishy Alibi 3 or 4 times now and each time is always great. Starting with the response to our request to book being almost immediate and always a pleasant conversation every time. They always work with our need to book last minute. The instructions for check-in, check-out and in general are complete and easy to follow. We absolutely love the accommodations. Clean and neat with all the amenities. Top of the list is the ice machine so very close to the boat. Nice big area to tie up. More than enough room for our 32' boat. Easy access right next to parking lot so no lugging all your gear down the dock. Comfy beds and plenty of fluffy towels with good hot water. No need to bring your own charcoal for the grill - it's gas. What more could you want? If the weather would have cooperated, we'd never want to leave!
Our stay at the Fishy Alibi was about as perfect as we could expect. The place was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities that you would need in a fish camp. It is very convenient to the parking lot which made unloading our gear a luggage very easy. It was also a very easy walk to the marina and restaurant. We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Venice.
We had a great time and u have a very nice houseboat. Thanku for everything and hope doing business again soon.
Clean, very well maintained. Had everythng a place would want. Perfect.
First time staying in a boat house. That is definitely the way to go. The houseboat is perfect, everything you need and you feel at home. I will rent it again!
Conveniently located to fish the Gulf of Mexico!! All of the amenities of comfort and home. So looking forward to another stay.
Sportsman's Paradise, Tuna Town USA and Redfish Capital of the World. Any of these descriptions of Venice, Louisiana hold true, and barely touch the surface of the majestic beauty of this estuary. Venice offers visitors some of the most fertile fishing and hunting areas the country or the world has to offer. Venice is non-stop action whether you’re looking for big game fishing in the beautiful offshore waters, or the action of the Mississippi River Delta, you won’t be disappointed. Venice, Louisiana truly is a 'Sportsman's Paradise.'
Cypress Cove Marina is around the corner. They offer another restaurant and bar, hotel, general store and fuel.
Fort Jackson and the Fort Jackson Museum is located approximately 40 minutes up the road from Venice. It was established in 1832. It has been built by the union, used by the confederates, equipped for the Spanish American War, used for training, as a prison and even owned by an individual at one time. There is a lot of interesting and valuable history to share with you. Located along the Mississippi River it is worth the time to stop and look around. I suggest 30 minutes for the fort and 30 minutes for the museum. It is free to visitors but call ahead for hours of operation.
Big Game Lodge, LLC acquired the houseboat known as the Wildcat Lodge in 2014 because of it’s convenient moored location against the parking lot just 70 yards down from the fish board in the Venice Marina.
The Wildcat Lodge was quickly renamed
