About the property

Open living areas great for entertaining! Sleeps 12-15 (in beds)

If you want a comfy rental for your family, look no further! The spacious living area allows time together and apart, with the kitchen overlooking it all.

Our visitors always rave at how wonderful you feel when you enter our home and the feeling of privacy and getting away, although you are just a few miles from groceries and stores.

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.

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. Kitchen is fully stocked for cooking those big meals!

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.

About Tom & Gwen Plauche

Tom & Gwen Plauche, owners of Bayou Maison.

Why Tom & Gwen Plauche chose Slidell

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.

Had a wonderful stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We saw 3 young gators just about every day. Kids enjoyed the canoe and the bayou. The house had plenty of room and met all our needs. Leaving was bittersweet, hated for vacation to be over, but honestly "there's no place like home" :) Would definitely stay there again if in the area!!! Thank you, Gwen for the supplying the coffee pot; put it to good use!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was very nice as was the interior. We stayed here while attending some events in New Orleans. Very suitable for large family gathering. Even the bunk beds were comfortable! Shopping and restaurants are close by so you can eat out or plan a great dinner at "home".

Home was clean and well maintained.

Thanks for such a great retreat!

No water access!!!

  • 3 of 5

The house and inside accommodations were great. If we were merely seeking a place to eat and sleep the house was great. We were hoping to enjoy the outdoors and the river. We have a boat and some would have liked to fish in the bayou. The dock and deck is quite a hike from the house through fairly thick grass, a path with pavers would certainly have made the hike easier, particularly for those of us approaching our senior years. A ceiling fan or two would certainly make the deck a more hospitable place to relax during the warm Louisiana afternoons and early evenings. Vegetation needs to be removed from the cove to allow access by boat or to fish from the deck. Clearing brush to the right of the cove would give a more panoramic view of the bayou and the boats and water sports taking place on it.

We rented a slip at the Rigolets and comuted to go boating and fishing. Those that remained at the house went and purchased a fan to use on the carport since the ceiling fan out there did 'nt work either. We did manage to have an enjoyable 4th of Julyweekend we friends and family.

Owner's Response: We do apologize that the lawn service couldn't get to the yard, due to the recent rains. The storm just a few days before you arrived pushed that vegetation back into the cove, which is cleaned out on a regular schedule - its all part of being on the bayou. 😄� We agree that fans would be a nice feature on the covered deck. Thank you for renting with us.
