Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Slidell - Bayou Maison

Open living areas great for entertaining! Sleeps 12 (in beds)

Bayou Maison is all on one level with no stairs to climb. The property boasts a private waterfront cove with a large deck house. Property has over 500 ft. on Bayou Bonfouca with water skiing, fishing, boating and all types of wildlife. Across the bayou from the property is 1200 acres of national wildlife preserve.

Bring your boat and dock it at our private cove. Launch your boat at the nearby marina. Enjoy walking around the 8.5 park like acres, where you may view deer, rabbits, pelicans, ducks, and an occasional gator.

Inside, enjoy 2 separate living areas. There's plenty of room for all to sit and eat at the dining table, kitchen table and island. The spacious kitchen allows room for all the cooks and becomes the place to gather, as others sit around the gorgeous 9ft x 5 ft granite island and watch.

There's plenty of grassy area for playing ball or Frisbee. Bring your fishing poles. Great antique shopping at nearby Olde Towne Slidell and new shopping mall at Fremaux Town Center off I-10.

Want great seafood? You need to go to Kenney's - a local fresh seafood market, that also serves the best po-boys around. Ready for a meal out? There are plenty of excellent choices: Zea's; Palmettos; Vera's; Christopher's on Carey; just to name a few.

Plenty of off street, private parking, including 2 covered spots under carport.

Special rates available for weddings and other small events. Please ask owners for details.

About Tom & Gwen Plauche

Tom & Gwen Plauche, owners of Bayou Maison. Long-time residents of Mandeville & New Orleans region.

Why Tom & Gwen Plauche chose Louisiana

We invite you to share our favorite place to get away to fish, kick-back and just enjoy life! You will likely see flocks of egrets early in the morning as you sip you strong New Orleans coffee on the deck by the bayou. The fish are jumping and the stars shine bright at Bayou Maison.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the privacy at this bayou retreat! Easy access, just a few minutes to shopping, yet feel like you are very secluded from the world once at the property.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. 13 adults of all ages. Perfect for a retreat or getaway. Secluded. Nice walking neighborhood. Groceries a 10 minute drive. New Orleans 30 minutes. The owners were very accommodating. No complaints at all.

Excellent home for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

Gwen was absolutely the best! We stayed there 5/13-5/16. The home looks just like the photos. Gwen is prompt in responding to inquiries. I'd definitely recommend this home to others!

PS: The shower in the master bedroom is super nice!

Felt like Family

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfectly laid out for a large group. The 3 bedrooms come with a master with master bath, second bedroom with queen and single, and a third bedroom with 5 sets of bunk beds. We had a group of 4 adults and 9 children. Having the very large yard to let off steam was great. There were games and nerf guns available to play. The two seating areas were great for those that wanted to sit and read or talk, while the other were entertained by the Netflix service available with the property. Slidell was a great place to stay while visiting New Orleans. We felt like we were visiting a family member's home instead of renting a property. We will definitely stay here again if plans bring us back to New Orleans.

Something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely well appointed home sitting on 8 acres of beautiful landscaping with the bayou at edge of lawn was perfect for our family get together and wedding. Tom and Gwen are very caring hosts and did many things to accommodate us.

The property looked just like the pictures online.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very spacious and clean. With having 13 boys it was perfect. The beds were comfortable and the outdoor space couldn't have been better. The water in the backyard was very calming and beautiful. The house came stocked with dishes and cookware which was perfect for making dinner and breakfast.

All in all we LOVED the property and would recommend this place to anyone.

We had a great time. The house is beautiful and more than we were expecting. Plenty of room. The kids caught fish from the pier.
