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.
