About Mickey and Tiffany

Being from New Iberia and loving the bayou it has been a dream to own a place on the Bayou. Although we don't live at our rental and don't live on the bayou, for now we still get to enjoy it. I met my wife as a referral. If your a guest I can explain. She is an amazing and incredibly hard working woman who after a few months dating and taking her out on my airboat, we were married at the Bass Pro shop in Branson. We both like the outdoors, hunting, fishing, scuba, diving, and repurposing things we find or buy from all over.

Mickey and Tiffany purchased this studio in 2015

Why Mickey and Tiffany chose New Iberia

This property was originally owner by my Grandfathers Brother and purchased by us from his niece. He built it in the late 1940's and ran an electrical supply business from it. Then it was rented to Roses Dental Lab for many years until it was closed due to retirement. For several years after that it was rented by the people as a camp to play cards and Dominoes. It was in rough shape when we acquired it and took about 8 months of work to remodel it. It was a fun project for the wife and I. It evolved into a Vacation Rental after we purchased it and went through several ideas of what it could be. We love to go there when it isn't being rented, to have friends over, and cook out. We are constantly looking for unique ways to decorate and make it more enjoyable for our guest. Its also a great place to have available for friends and family stay when they are visiting from out of town.

What makes this studio unique

This is a property is located downtown on the Bayou and is very private. It is its own single unit, not a condo, not a hotel, and doesn't share bathrooms like some B & Bs. You will be the only guest occupying this private rental property. The owners do not live on site, but are easily accessible and can be contacted for information, directions, and help if needed.

Best Place to stay in New Iberia!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best bed and breakfast to stay at in New Iberia. Located on the banks of the Bayou Teche, quiet and within walking distance to the downtown area. One Block! Micky, the owner, has a great eye for design and has transformed this building into a beautiful work of art! We will be staying here again.

Great little escape

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a few days for some rest and relaxation. The apartment is very well decorated and has everything one would need - a Keurig coffeemaker and accompaniments, stocked kitchen supplies, cable TV, wifi, and more. The location is beautiful - overlooking the bayou and just steps away from restaurants, bars & a museum. Owners are nice and thoughtful - even brought breakfast vouchers for a local restaurant. Highly recommend.

Creatively charming cabin on the bayou

  • 5 of 5

We drove through a SNOW storm to get to New Iberia from New Orleans. Encountered closed bridges and overpasses to get there. Once we opened the door the stress melted away! we spent an hour just looking at all the wonderful items of Cajun charm and the detail to the design of the unit. We didn’t really get to take advantage of the patio out back (even has a grill and wood burning chimnea) because of the chilly weather. We traveled with our dog Mickey. The host Mickey had put up a Christmas tree, Christmas decorations and lights outside. He was a great host, all his replies were immediate and he kept us informed of the Holiday events going on in town.

It was hard to leave!

We really enjoyed our weekend stay at the Bayou Chateau. It was clean, comfortable and perfectly located, walking distance to restaurants, shops, the museum and interesting sights.

Adorable place in great location with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Lots of attention to detail by the builder/host. Same attention to making sure we had a good time. Asked what drinks we like and fridge was stocked with it all. Snacks to tide us over. Restaurant reviews were helpful and we everywhere we ate was at their suggestion. Great location. Great view of the bayou. Got some rain but didn't mind b/c deck was covered so we sat outside, drank the wine and read a new James Lee Burke book purchased at the flea market in town!
