About the property

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

Bayou Maison is all on one level with no stairs to climb. The property boasts a private waterfront cove with a large deck house. 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.

Bring your boat and dock it at our private cove. Launch your boat at the nearby marina. 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.

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. Long-time residents of Mandeville & New Orleans region.

Why Tom & Gwen Plauche chose Louisiana

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.

Amazingly well-stocked kitchen and responsive hosts

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were perfect for my a New Years gathering with a large group of friends. We enjoy being in a naturalistic setting that has the feel of a retreat but also being within easy driving distance of a grocery store and other attractions. From this beautiful home that has great views of the bayou and that has a lovely deck/gazebo on which to sit and enjoy nature, we easily drove to and from grocery stores as well as went into New Orleans to enjoy the food and activities there. My group enjoys cooking large meals for many people, both breakfasts and dinners, and the kitchen was so well stocked, possibly better stocked that any rental home we've stayed in previously. Not only are there ample kitchen tools such as waffle irons, durable chefs knives, and pots and pans, but there were more than enough plates, utensils, and dishes. Additionally, the spice rack was well stocked. There were plenty of towels, and the hosts left a good bit of the essentials like toilet paper and paper towels so that in our short stay, we did not have to purchase more. It was great from start to finish. I highly recommend this place.

The Spot

Pretty sure this place has the biggest kitchen island I've ever seen in my entire life! You can easily sleep 300 people comfortably and it feels like you're at a really nice camp. Very Impressive and Relaxing !!!

Open, spacious and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

This place sleeps around 20. We rented this place for one night to do a guys bow fishing trip. The place had everything we needed on site for meal preparation. The best thing about the night was the beds. We were worn out after the hunt and the beds (even the bunk beds) have fantastic mattresses! I give this place 👍👍

My new favorite get-away

  • 5 of 5

This house and property provided the perfect environment for a refreshing get-away where we felt secluded and off the grid but still had the convenience of stores/restaurants only 15 minutes away. Clean, spacious, peaceful, and affordable. We made some great memories and will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

Great family get away

  • 5 of 5

Coming from the west coast on a red eye we thought we would hangout in NOLA until check-in time at 4 but we were wrong, too exhausted so we contacted Gwen, she was so nice and accommodating to us, we were able to checkin early. This house has so much to offer the views were beautiful, the beds were comfy, the kitchen well equipped. This was a great place to host a small family gathering.

I truly loved this place, thanks Gwin and family for sharing your vacation home.
