Perfect Spot to Escape the Snow!

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of fishing and crabbing to keep us busy for the entire 2 weeks. Tons of wildlife to include alligators and many different birds. The neighbors are extremely friendly. Don took us fishing and Jim offered his pontoon. The house was very clean and comfortable. The decorations were perfect. Beautiful views from the deck. This is a place we will definitely visit more than once! We will be back next year!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I travel a lot for business and this was by far one of the best accommodations that I have ever experienced. The home was clean and very well maintained; the bathrooms were well stocked with supplies and the kitchen had everything I needed to make meals for my family. Upon arrival, I noticed that Shannon had baited the crab cages and we were able to catch a dozen crabs and fish off of her dock. The location of the property was convenient to many of the retail stores and restaurants. When traveling to New Orleans or surrounding areas, I would definitely recommend staying here. Thanks Shannon for sharing your little piece of paradise; I will be back!

Perfect for Multi-Family Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Fish Camp was perfect for our little multi-family holiday vacation. Close enough to the city to be convenient for visiting all of the attractions of New Orleans and far enough to enjoy quiet family time in the evening. We stayed with our infant son so having multiple entrys/exits was great, allowing us to keep the entry hallway adjacent to the master bedroom a quiet little sanctuary for him during naps. The only thing that would have made this trip any better would have been an additional shower. 8 people and 1 shower was a little rough but we made it work!! We will definetly keep this property in mind for future trips to the Big Easy!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We're so glad your family enjoyed your holiday vacation at our camp. Thank you for the suggestion of an additional shower. We're actually in the process of installing a full bath downstairs, then adding a shower to the half bath upstairs. I wish we could have had it completed before your stay, but it'll definitely be ready next time. Have a Happy New Year!

Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Close enough yet far enough out. The home is cozy and beds comfortable. The neighbors to the right are AMAZING!!! Shannon set up to have the crab pots set out for us upon arrival and even left us all the fixin's for our planned crab boil and Don, the neighbor, not only helped us achieve our goal of a fabulous boil but showed us exactly how to do it so we can replicate it at home! (Minus the great company, of course!) He was full of fabulous stories and such a great character. When he found out we were going to get a few more crab and some shrimp, he called and had some fresh ones brought to us straight off the boat at a price you'd never believe! Shannon was a doll and made sure there was a setup there to cook for the entire neighborhood and the house is setup perfectly for it.

The home was well setup, beds were comfortable, there were plenty of towels and blankets. There are 2 actual bedrooms, a cute loft with 2 twin beds and a sleeper sofa. The master houses the only bath/shower and does not have a t.v. in it which was very disappointing because I can't fall asleep without it, but I managed to stream Netflix on my phone when I was still awake at 5am and finally dozed off. The 2nd bedroom has a queen/twin bunk with trundle bed if needed and it has a small t.v. We slept in this room the 2nd night when some of our other guests had to return home. The only negative I have is there needs to be a few good knives, something other than a metal scouring pad to wash the dishes with (hubs looked, but maybe not well enough? He is a and maybe some towels that can be used to clean up outside if you're doing a boil or eating a feast!

The place is perfect. Gorgeous views, beautiful sunsets, and a fabulous deck to enjoy! Like I said, I really couldn't have asked for more. It's a great little fishing camp!!! We WILL be staying here again when we return to NOLA! I suggest you do as well!

Thanks for everything, Shannon! Please tell your neighbors THANK YOU for us again as well!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thanks for the awesome review! We're so glad you enjoyed your seafood feast. I let Don know how much you enjoyed his company and boiling tips. Thank you for making me aware that a TV in the bedroom can sometimes be a necessity. I will get this taken care of right away along with making sure the cleaning cloths and knives are readily accessible.
