About Owner / Raymond Sonnier

Life-long resident of Houma, LA.

Owner / Raymond Sonnier purchased this house in 2009

Why Owner / Raymond Sonnier chose Louisiana

We chose to select this area as we felt there was a demand for people wanted to come to the area for many recreational opportunities and there are very limited accommodations in this area. We are one of the nicer rentals available on the bayou.

A fabulous way to escape winter in the north!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great escape for us from the winter weather up north in the mid-west. The property's interior was clean, nicely decorated, and had all the amenities we needed for an extended stay. The people of Chauvin were welcoming and the property owners/hosts were outstanding. We enjoyed great fishing and a lot of good Cajun food! We especially enjoyed the ability to walk down the road to buy our fresh seafood and enjoyed trying new recipes as well! We will have fond memories of this trip for years to come. One of my favorite things about this property was the big shrimp boats that pass through the channel within a few feet of the back porch multiple times everyday. There was just something incredibly beautiful about that experience every time it happened. Thank you to the owners for sharing this wonderful property with us.

Monroe, La.

Very nice, very convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stay at this place annually. It's a comfortable "home away from home" and is conveniently located for the marsh fishing we enjoy. It offers a quality location for my sons, a brother-in-law and I to get together and spend a week together away from work and household chores with no excuse for failing to explore our coastal marshes and keep the redfish populating under control.

Awesome Camp!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this camp to those who want a nice place close to fishing, crabbing, and enjoying the outdoors. It was beautifully decorated, had all the necessary kitchen items, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Raymond was also very helpful and willing to give suggestions when I called to ask about charter fishing trips, crabbing sites, etc. Wonderful place!

The owner lives nearby and when the AC unit went out Saturday evening, came by with some new window units and installed them. He also extended to us a free stay in the future for our inconvenience.
