Tensas Tower on the Teche | Downtown New Iberia

Riverfront vacation home in New Iberia with patio
Explore Cajun Country in absolute luxury and style! Soaring above the banks of the Bayou Teche in the heart of Historic New Iberia, this contemporary architectural wonder is like no other. Relax & enjoy the scenic views of the Bayou Teche from one of the soaring balconies or step back in time and explore the unique, southern charm of Downtown New Iberia. All within walking distance from numerous shops, delicious restaurants, engaging attractions, & local festivals.

Our contemporary home offers guests all the amenities and luxuries to make oneself feel right at home. We have sought to equip our home to a high standard and to anticipate your needs by providing all the things you might want for a luxurious stay. Here is an overview of what the Tensas Tower has to offer:

1st Floor / Grounds
- Sculpture Garden and boat docking
- Free off-street parking
- Common entry vestibule

2nd Floor
- European-styled Kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and fully equipped kitchen amenities
- Modern decor living space with HDTV, stereo system, and convertible sofa bed
- Half bath
- Entertaining balcony over looking the Bayou Teche with grill and outdoor dining

3rd Floor
- Private Bedroom Suite with King Bed, closet, and HDTV
- Full bath featuring a walk-in, luxury shower with massaging sprays
- Private covered balcony with outdoor lounge seating

The condo does NOT have an elevator. Guests must use a spiral stair to access all 3 floors of the condo unit. This spiral stair is narrow and for some guests can be tricky to use if you are disabled, impaired, and/or unfamiliar with spiral stairs. Always use the handrail when on the spiral stairs. Please use caution when carrying items like suitcases, ice chests, groceries, supplies, etc. up and down the spiral stairs. Typically, the smaller the load is to carry up, the easier it is. We highly suggest guests pack in smaller suitcases since large suitcase maybe difficult to bring up 2 flights of stairs. We also have shoulder bags that can be helpful for carrying items up the stairs. Please note that this is not an ADA accessible facility.

Guests are allowed access to the parking area, 1st floor entry vestibule, and 2nd/3rd floors of condo unit. The Bayou Teche boardwalk and waterfront park are both public areas that guests are allowed to access. Guests are prohibited from entry into the 1st floor garage and roof top. Please do not climb the access stairs to roof.

Since this condo unit is attached to an office suite, it is common for the office employees to enter/exit the office through the 1st floor entry vestibule during normal business hours.

Arrival is self check-in and you will be provided with check-in instructions prior to your arrival. We live only a few minutes away from the home and work in the adjacent office suite next door. Should you need to reach us, we are always available by phone 24/7 for questions or recommendations. Also, you will have the entire home to yourself, however there is a shared entry vestibule with the adjacent office next door.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Unique Stay
This unusual and visually stimulating property was comfortable for a weekend visit. The kitchen is amply equipped, the master bed was most comfortable, and the property is in a great location with a masterful view of the bayou and the town. The spiral staircase can be a bit tricky. Overall, we are very pleased to have visited.
