This is a wonderful, low-key spot in the heart of the city. Cozy, quiet neighborhood-welcoming home and relaxing expectations.

The space

2 bedroom home with a full kitchen, BOSE system, 18” Television with ROKU hooked up and ready to stream all your Netflix and Hulu Plus picks. Now that’s only if you want to stay in and watch TV! This quiet refuge sleeps 4 (or 5 if we make a pallet down on the floor!). 2 wonderfully comfy Queen beds are here to make your stay the best. This is the perfect place for all your Lafayette adventures yet peaceful enough to facilitate a business trip. The full kitchen is ready for all your breakfast, lunch and dinner needs.

Interested in exploring the local sites in town? We can point you to all the hot spots, restaurants, swamp tours and dancehalls! You know…show you how to pass a good time, cher!

This comfy Lafayette haven is waiting for you in the well-known Saint Streets area of town. Take a beautiful neighborhood walk, saunter to Downtown Lafayette, art galleries and live music venues; this is the best place to base your Lafayette experience.

Comes with a great house manual we made that lists the best spots in town, from local attractions to the touristy stuff.
Some Nearby attractions: Pastor Brothers Cajun Excursions: Zydeco Bayou Adventure, get your culture on at the Acadiana Center for the Arts and step back in time to a small 19th-century Cajun bayou community, which includes genuine Cajun homes relocated to Acadian Village.

WARNING: You'll want to move here. Make friends, eat great food, listen to live music. Take in the neighborhood and all the friendly folks that make Lafayette a Cajun & Creole paradise.


Guest access

Guest have access to all areas of the house when renting. There is modest space available in closets, refrigerator, kitchen/bathroom cabinets for guest items. I provide one house key for use and ask that guests park vehicle(s) in driveway and not on street.

Interaction with guests

I typically leave a key for guests to let themselves in upon arrival and leave in house upon departure. I rarely stop by the house, unless it's to pick up mail or an item from inside. If I do need access to house, I always give guests a heads up that I'm coming by.

Other things to note

My home is always clean and presentable for guests. However, if you need white glove cleanliness, nary a speck of dust in sight, please get a hotel.

This was an exceptionally cozy house with 2 BR and 2 Baths which were perfect for my friend and I while we were visiting Lafayette. The location is close to the university and to downtown. The neighborhood is very quiet.

Kim was super sweet and helpful, she made everything about the booking easy, and the house is right in the middle of town so it was easy to get everywhere we needed to go quickly!

Loved the convenience and cuteness of Kim's home. It was a great 1-night stay for me. Kim was super friendly and would definitely stay here again.

Kim's place is on a quiet cul de sac. I appreciated the front porch and view of the moon!

Kim was a great host. Her house is cute and comfortable. It is in a nice, older neighborhood at the end of a dead end street; therefore, it seems secluded while right in the midst of the university area. Food and wine are available close by. Comfortable beds with good AC and ceiling fans.

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but only 5 mins from downtown. This house is great for small families.

Laugher, lover, singer & daughter of a simple man. I love dancing to live, local music. I enjoy SW Louisiana, its people, its food and embracing culture. I can't live without family, fresh salsa and strong belly-busting laughter. I'm the eldest of six children which means I'm used to caring for others and making sure everyone has just what they need. That explains my tendencies as a host. Life motto? No Regrets.
