Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Mandeville - Dew Drop By-You Condo

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Old Mandeville is the quiet side of New Orleans, one of the most vibrant, resilient cities in the world. Only 24 miles across the lake from New Orleans is this quaint village (est. 1842) with historic architecture, Saturday market, and wonderful spots to eat play, hear music and experience Southern small town friendliness. Our waterfront townhouse is perfect to bring friends and family together for special times to create memories or renew those romantic feelings. The upper floor offers 2 bedrooms and full bath with the experience of mezzanine living that allows both privacy and connection to the lower level. This floor has a full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel new appliances and a half bath down the hall. The living room and dining area flow into the private patio with your fishing/crabbing pier on the bayou only 20 ft away. Our home includes a large HD/LED TV with 225 channels, DVD, BBQ pit, 2 bikes, fishing poles. Our Dew Drop Getaway is across the street from the 31 mile walking/biking trail that connects you to Lakeshore Drive (2 blocks away), Fontainbleau State Park (2 miles away w/ beach) and four other adorable towns nearby with unique personalities. Examples of fun places are Honey Island Swamp, Global Wildfire Center, Insta-Gator Ranch and Hatchery, and Abita Beer Brew Pub. In addition, you are only an hour away from plantation country south of Baton Rouge, and the casinos of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. There is much to explore, a listing of festivals, and fabulous music happenings at the Dew Drop Jazz Hall (est. 1895) and Ruby's Roadhouse (both within a mile). We promise you a feast for all of your senses. Come on down!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was very clean , the owner even called at some point to check on us . Plenty of rooms for our family and everything we could need . I think our only annoyance was the shower we kept having to adjust the temp for hot and cold and it never could get right . Then there were personal items which was kinda awkward since we were using the condo . Overall it was very homey and comfortable - wait maybe I shouldn't say that I don't want them raising the price - lol

Owner's Response: Thanks. We try to treat all of our guests like family. In fact, the owner does use the Dew Drop ByYou condo several times a year. Thanks also for sharing the plumbing problem. It is now schedule for repair. And don't worry, we plan on keeping the Dew Drop ByYou condo as home-like and comfortable as we can..including our rates.

Loved It ! Very happy to have found this place !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week September 30th- October 8th. We absolutely loved the property and the location was perfect as well. Mere feet from the water, which is exactly what we wanted. It offered any and all amenities that you could possibly imagine (except for food of course). Just like being at home ! Nick was incredibly helpful, attentive and accommodating from the very moment that we inquired. Under promised and OVER delivered of our expectations. We will be visiting this amazing gem more often in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks. We definitely appreciate compliments about The Dew Drop ByYou condo...and ourselves. We hope to accommodate all our guests as well. It does mean a lot with our guest are locals. (from New Orleans). It reinforces that we are close enough to New Orleans to enjoy all its amenities and far enough away to enjoy quiet and relaxation. It also means a lot when guest plan their visit, then enjoy their stay enough to ask to extend it!!! Glad we got to meet and talk for a while. Look forward to your next visits.

We really enjoyed the pool and having our dinners on the back patio! Everything was also as pictured and Nick was really helpful with sending links on local things to go check out! We had a great time and will definitely be booking this place again in the near future.

Owner's Response: Our patio is enjoyed by all of our guests. What not to like...overlooking a quiet bayou. We encourage our guests to take advantage of everything our area has to offer. We send a list of activities and places to see, for kids & adults. We greet everyone with "Laissez les bon temps roulez". (Let the good times roll.) We know we are doing something right when our guests ask about future dates to book. When they leave, we don't say Good Bye, we say "Au revoir". (Til we see each other again.)

This place was great. The backyard view was so peaceful and where we spent most of our time. The condo was perfect and very clean. The hospitality was superior! all of our needs were surpassed! I will definitely use the Dew Drop By-You Condo again when we come in town to visit!!

Nick was wonderful! He wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. As soon as we arrived, he came to set up our bedding. The air mattress did not have a plug, so the air kept leaking out and deflating the mattress. We texted Nick and he purchased a new air mattress and set it up for us in the den. The bikes were a treat, but the tires were flat when we went to ride them. We texted Nick again and he was right back. He took one of the bikes for repair and put air in the other tires. The deck was a relaxing place to sit and watch the water and boats. The beds were not comfy, but the location made up for it. We enjoyed the local restaurants, the pool and lakefront area. The kitchen was well stocked. It was great having plenty of towels and a washer and dryer. The water views were lovely. The unit also comes with fishing poles and crab nets. It's a fun place to get a true taste of NOLA. Thanks, Nick!!

Owner's Response: Thanks. While we hope everything works while our guests are here, we know sometimes they don't. Whenever that happens, we endeavor to fix it as soon as possible. Glad to say all are still holding air!!
