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.

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.

Lovettsville, VA

Worth the drive from Virginia!!

  • 5 of 5

When you drive 17 hours for a vacation, you are just hoping that everything works out according to plan. This place and it's owner greatly exceeded those expectations. We came here to experience Louisiana fishing and eating for our first time with our two teenage boys. Now we are trying to figure out when we can get back there. Two weeks wasn't enough time! People really are nicer in the South! Fishing is the best we have done anywhere. The house was comfy with great beds and bathrooms and fully stocked with all you need. Good location for fishing close by - we used our kayaks, pretty close to Houma for great food, and close enough to New Orleans to explore there for a day.

Monroe, La.

My impression was good enough that we visit this location every year and plan to continue.

  • 5 of 5

My sons, a friend, and I enjoy an annual fishing trip in this area and plan to continue. This property is conveniently located for the areas we like to fish and the house has everything we need---- kitchen, dining area, living area, bedrooms, baths, fishing from the back yard and close to the marsh. The house is neat and clean and is a very pleasant place to spend a week.

Simply the best place

  • 5 of 5

Everything you read in the other five star reviews is true. The place is exceptional, the owner fantastic, and my wife and I caught a lot of fish in our kayaks. Bait and landings very close. Out of adjectives to describe how great it was. I have already recommended it to folks at work. Sorry, might get booked up!!
