About Steve Brantley

I have recently purchased the Miss Fortune from my step-father, Fred Lewis, who will continue to be involved in the operations and guidance to make your stay the most enjoyable possible.

Why Steve Brantley chose Venice

There is no better fishing in the world than in Venice, LA., in my opinion.

What makes this house boat unique

The most relaxing time of day is enjoying family and friends in the afternoon, cooking and sipping on the porch after a day of fishing or hunting.

Little HomeAway from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little HomeAway from Home! I could go on and on, but this place is in an awesome location, has all the comforts of home, 100 yards or so from Marina, Charter captains pick you right up from your back porch if you ask them to, CLEAN, spacious, comfortable/relaxing, Owner has been very responsive, great to deal with!

Thank you Steve,

We'd love to come back for sure!

Great Place

Very clean and well keep. The finger dock is great, it makes parking two boats very easy. Will defiantly say again.

  • 5 of 5

It is obvious the owner takes pride in his property and aims to make everyone's stay comfortable. The addition of the new boat dock is tremendous. All the updates inside and outside along with the cleanliness makes it a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is right on the main entrance to the marina and we could watch the boats come and go all day long!! Its super clean and extremely comfortable for the 7 people we had stay with us. Steve was very responsive to all our questions and very accommodating to our late check out! We are already looking for a time to get everyone together again to stay here and catch some more amazing fish!! See you soon Steve!
