Owner's Response: It's great to have positive response from traveler guest despite VRBO etc difficult signing up add undisclosed fees on top of rent Also difficult for elders to manage computer issues managing rent when ther are as in my rental case ,2 or 3 people sharing the rent seems like VRBO used owners developing their business and then grab for more $$$$

Great girlfriend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Nine high school girlfriends got together for our 70th Birthday Celebration and this home was perfect! Beautiful views of the river. Best private location with plenty of parking and close to Covington shopping and restaurants! Would recommend to families and friends! Thanks again to the owner for his gracious service!

Best owner ever and a great house and view, as well!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this riverfront property the weekend after the Tchefuncte River rose to historic heights and flooded its banks. The owner got a crew in there to clean up the property before our arrival...

The property and the house are beautiful! Plenty of showers and hot water for the groom, his groomsmen, and family to get ready for his wedding in Mandeville!

We had a wonderful time!

Definitely a 5 star property!

Covington, Louisiana


  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this house numerous times in the past years and it is such a wonderful place to stay. It is a fantastic place to stay for a family get together. I just love the large porch under the house and large deck right outside the doors. So many windows to enjoy the beauty of this house. I don't know if it is the same owner or not but who ever is interested in this property believe me you will not be disappointed. It is one beautiful house especially if you have a boat or wave runner.

Amazing home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an enjoyable time in the River House! The home is beautiful. The atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing, and the river is tons of fun! We felt set apart from the world, yet minutes from great stores and restaurants. We would return again and again! :)

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to use for ourselves and our guests for the wedding weekend of our son. The four king rooms worked out perfectly and the lovely large kitchen accommodated our group perfectly. It was a perfect gathering spot for all the pre wedding festivities. I know the groomsmen pictures will be wonderful because of the picturesque grounds and the beautiful river views. The owner is very easy to work with and all went very smoothly. Incredible weekend !
