I typically host a jazz & blues themed music night & potluck dinner every Tuesday evening. If this is an issue for you, then please notify me and I will be happy to reschedule/postpone it.

Eric's place was easy to get to and easy to get in and out of! Just a quick stay on a long road trip. Eric's place was clean and well-appointed, and he was super friendly. Thanks!

Eric was a great host. We were able to check in very late and the separate entrance was a big plus. We could go out quietly in the morning without feeling like we were bothering anyone. We were just passing through so it was excellent. Next time we will stay a little longer and check out the town.

We liked our night here. Eric's roommate played a few soft tunes on the piano that we heard distantly as we fell asleep. We slept soundly in a quiet house with our car parked safely nearby. Very nice stay!

Hello, my name is Eric McGoffin. I have been a resident of Lafayette for all of my life. I love that there is a strong sense of community in Lafayette. The unique intermingling of cultures, preference for locally owned small businesses, and comfortable campus make for an unforgettable stay!

I have been working as a piano instructor in Lafayette for over three years now. My students range from ages 4-33, so I get along well with many different types of people. I received my Master's of Music from UL Lafayette in 2016. While I love to play and listen to music, my priority is to be a respectful host. If I play piano while a guest is present, I always use headphones to ensure that volume is never an issue.

AirBnB is a great way to encourage more people to learn about the many positive qualities of Lafayette. My goal as an AirBnB host is to create a relaxing environment for people to enjoy after a long day. I subscribe to the life motto "Do good work". Contact me if I work for you!
