About Steve Brantley

I have recently purchased the Miss Fortune from my step-father, Fred Lewis, who will continue to be involved in the operations and guidance to make your stay the most enjoyable possible.

Why Steve Brantley chose Louisiana

There is no better fishing in the world than in Venice, LA., in my opinion.

What makes this house boat unique

The most relaxing time of day is enjoying family and friends in the afternoon, cooking and sipping on the porch after a day of fishing or hunting.

clean, well supplied, up to date,

  • 5 of 5

It is obvious the owner takes pride in his property and aims to make everyone's stay comfortable. The addition of the new boat dock is tremendous. All the updates inside and outside along with the cleanliness makes it a great place to stay.

New Orleans, la


  • 5 of 5

This is right on the main entrance to the marina and we could watch the boats come and go all day long!! Its super clean and extremely comfortable for the 7 people we had stay with us. Steve was very responsive to all our questions and very accommodating to our late check out! We are already looking for a time to get everyone together again to stay here and catch some more amazing fish!! See you soon Steve!

Great place and Good people to work with

  • 4 of 5

This was a great and clean place, perfect getaway . I would recommend this to anyone, only thing that would make it better would be a ice machine. But other than that was clean, plenty of room for 6 plus people.

Nice and clean

  • 4 of 5

Very nice houseboat, and the dock that was added is a real plus. Only thing missing is an ice machine.

Owner's Response: I have three other Houseboats that have ice machines and customers that rent the Miss Fortune may use them. If I install an ice machine on the Miss Fortune then the rental price would go up from 250. a night to 300. a night.

great location and boat house

  • 4 of 5

This is out 2nd time and Steve was a great bonus taking care of us last minute and I mean last minute. It's probably not the fanciest place in Venice, but very nicely appointed with everything you need. When the air or heat comes on it comes ON. We enjoy it greatly as all the boats have to pass you and after learning people down there we yell back and forth and it's a cool little spot. All in all we stay there because it is nice, has what we need(grill, enough space for 6, extra freezer, and you can get ice from next door if needed). Would recommend. Once again can't say enough about Steve being a great help. Scott Murphree and gang, Feb 2017
