Born and raised in New Orleans, recently moved to Madisonville and loving every minute of it ! Madisonville is a "hidden gem" of southern charm and hospitality and the Tchefuncte River is breathtakingly beautiful and lots of fun.
Location, Location, Location. Right on the Tchefuncte River !
Boating right from the front yard and steps away from wonderful restaurants, parks, tennis, swimming, a beautiful library, and the Madisonville Maritime Museum. Just 40 minutes from New Orleans and all of the attractions and the historic French Quarter.
Stephen has a perfect spot with the best location possible! Will def return!
We had a magnificent time at the boat festival. The unit can't be beat for its location. Clean and comfortable. Stephen is the perfect owner/host. Highly recommend for a relaxing time.
I rented this property for my parents so they could visit my brother in Mandeville. They are elderly (with some health problems) and were traveling from Wisconsin to Louisiana. It was very important to me that they had a “home away from home” to rest in after their long trip and for the week they were there. I also wanted it to be in a good location so that they did not have to go far for food, coffee shops, shopping and sightseeing.
The owner was very willing to communicate with me in regards to my concerns and went above and beyond to make sure their stay was exactly what I needed for them. An arrangement was made for my sister-in-law to visit the home prior to their arrival, which also satisfied a lot of my concerns. The home is clean and decorated quite nicely. The location was perfect for convenience as well as the view of the river. There were a few things that were not what I had hoped for, but in the end, made little difference.
First, the owner does live in the back of the property. He has divided the home in a manner in which his entrance is separate from guest entrance. Also, there is not a full sized kitchen. The home has a small bar sink with a very small “hotel style” refrigerator. And there is no laundry room. These few things were what I was looking for and what distinguished a “home” from a hotel room, so I was disappointed these things were not more obvious when I was looking at the property. My parents had hoped to eat more meals in, wash their clothes and have a bit more privacy. But all that being said, everything turned out great. Steven definitely has his guests best interest at heart. He works hard to make sure he can accommodate any situation and is very willing to work with guests (and their families!). My parents arrived home with nothing but good to say about the whole trip. Mission accomplished!! We would definitely rent this home again.
Stephen Carter was extremely helpful. The house is immaculately neat and clean located right in the middle of town on the river surrounded by a few great choices to eat drink and do some boating. We will surely consider renting again when we return to Louisiana.
Had a wonderful stay. The location on the riverfront was beautiful and enjoyed being able to walk to waterfront dining and coffee shop just down the street. Took advantage of boating on the river with their own Tchefuncte River Water Adventures and the whole family had fun swimming and tubing. The river is beautiful. The house was very comfotable and clean. Stephen was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again.
We had a great visit to Madisonville, the house is in a great location, very clean and nicely decorated. We had our twin 6 year old grandchildren and Stephen brought Lego's and games in for them and they had a ball, what a terrific host. I would definitely recommend this property when in the Madisonville area.
Madisonville is a charming southern historic town located on the banks of the Tchefuncte River. Being on the river and in close proximity to Historic New Orleans, it is an ideal setting for a romantic couples getaway or a wonderful and adventurous family vacation!
