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

We enjoyed our stay, there were issues. In the end it worked out for us.

  • 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!!

Gorgeous house

  • 4 of 5

Our family of all ages had a wonderful stay at the Bayou Oaks Plantation. The house is beautiful inside and out, and certainly a reasonable value compared to similarly priced homes to rent in New Orleans. The owners live on the property (above the garage) and are quite responsive - they just took over the house about 5 years ago and have been making improvements ever since. This is already a five-star venue for a wedding where you would have your own caterer cooking with their own pots and pans (the house has 2 refrigerators, 4 ovens, 2 dishwashers, and 3 coffee makers in the kitchen). At the time we stayed, the elevator and hot tub were not functioning and some minor issues arose that made it a four-star experience for us - but I would guess that things will be continually upgraded if the property stays in Gina and Frank's hands.

Owner's Response: Happy to host you and your family! We are constanly updating everything right down to the smallest detail. Thank you for your feedback. We hope to have you back! Give us the chance to earn that 5th STAR! God Bless!

Top notch all the way

  • 5 of 5

We were in awe of such a beautiful estate upon arrival. This house was simply amazing in every way. Not only was the house itself perfect but the owners worked with us every step of the way and welcomed us upon arrival as well. Thank you so much Gina and Frank for making this vacation so special.
