Beautiful with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

I hosted 17 out of towners for the second weekend of NOLA Jazz Fest May 4-7. Everyone loved the house, we utilized all the space of offered in the house. There was enough room for everyone to spread out and come together within the plantation. Very secluded and so beautiful, you are in awe from point of driving up to the gates. The house was fully stocked with cookware and utensils for meal preparations. There grounds were well kept and the views were stunning. When we ran into concerns Gina answered the phone quickly and remediated the issue. I would definitely recommend staying at Bayou Oaks Plantation. Thank you for offering this home as rental.

This is the Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Some college friends and I met here for a reunion in April. Needless to say, EVERYONE is still talking about what a great experience it was! The property delivered all that it promised and Gina, the owner...was amazing!

Gina was exceptionally communicative and available before and during our stay. If you are considering this home...look no further, this is the place to stay!

The outdoor areas were very well-maintained and the house offered everything we needed. I was most impressed by the kitchen with all of the appliances and extra items provided. It was literally like a home away from home!

The house was truly incredible and the location is perfect to get away from it all, but also close enough to downtown. We had a group of 30-50 year old guys and we spent most of the time lounging poolside and fishing down in the bayou. I highly recommend this home for anyone looking to relax or play!

Felt like a queen for 4 days! Room enough for all the family. Great place to entertain guests.

  • 4 of 5

We rented Bayou Oaks Plantation as our home base the week of our daughter's wedding in Louisiana. Our family members total 16 and we had also brought along a babysitter. The grounds and entertaining space are majestic with plenty of room for children to run and play. Gina ( the property owner) was easy to work with and very helpful answering questions.

My favorite space was the chef's kitchen which looks out onto the pool area and bayou. Just a pleasure to cook and create meals with the fully appointed kitchen with all the cookware you would ever need. The weather cooperated with us and the children played lawn games outside and loved the bunk bed room.

My only negative was the lack of light at the gate area .It was rather difficult to find the residence in the dark the first time. Thanks again for sharing your lovely property with others. Wonderful memories were made. The David Nordness Family, Auburn, Alabama

  • 2 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, very large house and grounds.

PROS : Lots of space, grounds are beautiful, perfect layout for entertaining large groups.

Convenient location to stores and restaurants.

CONS : No running water for 6 hours the first day. Pool leaking, water low everyday and very dirty, Concerns about unsafe and dirty pool water. Huge Wasps nests on all porches. Well water supply so If the hose was on outside there was no water pressure inside the house.

Owners were very responsive when issues came up.

Owner's Response: We were very happy to host you and your family. As I'm sure you know a very large home has constant upkeep. For this very reason we have check in and out time that are usually strict. In this case however we allowed for an early check in, upon your insistence. We also allowed you to view the home on several different occasions. We can honestly say we have never had a guest view our home before booking and open every single cabinet! That was a first. We will continue to go above and beyond for all of our guest here at Bayou Oaks Plantation. We are so happy you had a wonderful stay here and hope to have you back for years to come. Wonderful memories to be had for all! God Bless

Beautiful, amazing, perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding here this weekend and it was more perfect than we imagined. The added bonus was the ability for both of our families to stay in the home and really get to bond before and after the celebration. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and allowing us to create amazing memories!!
