Large, private bedroom suite (~550 SF) with balcony overlooking Bayou and woods, on 2nd floor of beautiful home situated on 10 private acres, just 18 miles from Downtown Lafayette-choose from quiet solitude or south Louisiana culture at full blast!!
First, please check about availability before you try to book; and, don't forget to check the other listing(s):
This space is a huge, private suite, on the 2nd floor of a beautiful & well furnished 5 BR 4 BA home, on 10 very private acres, bordered on one side by 1/2 mile of frontage on Bayou Bourbeau, a tributary of Bayou Teche, yet only 16 miles north of Downtown Lafayette, LA. There are about 1250 Square Feet of covered porches, and a separate large round deck anchored by a massive, wood-fired, old world pizza and bread oven, with granite counters in which I can make pizza and cut and serve the pies that cook in less than 180 seconds...
This space is a large, upstairs bedroom suite, with a view off of your private balcony on the second floor, down to and across the bayou and the woods and fields beyond. It's over 500 SF with a king bed with a private bathroom that includes a shower and a 2-sink vanity. The bedroom is furnished with two occasional chairs and a small leather sofa, an antique roll-top desk, and a private closet for your use.
The entire house is also potentially available by special arrangement, with or without catered meals, and can potentially sleep 12, plus another 6 on queen air mattresses that can be placed on the floor of the bedrooms upstairs. If you are potentially interested in the entire house, check ahead, because we live near the "Happiest City" in the United States - that is, Lafayette, Louisiana (for folks who haven't seen this famous study.) If this place is not available, and you need a recommendation of a place nearby, I have some great friends who are very close that I'd love to connect you with.

You'll be at the epicenter of Cajun and Creole culture, minutes away from the "Prairie Parishes" to the west, and the Atchafalaya Basin and the mighty Mississippi River and beyond, to the east. Dancing, music, nature, biking, antique shopping, birding, excellent dining, art and crafts, a great little theatre and one-of-a-kind cultural events including annual festivals for every thing you can imagine, not to mention the culturally authentic celebration of Mardi Gras, the Courir de Mardi Gras.
While here, guests can explore the property on nature walks, and are welcomed to use the outside decks, as well as the large downstairs living room. The washer and dryer are also available if needed, as is the kitchen.
Private chef, catered, gourmet meals, made just for you, are sometimes available by special request, for a small extra charge. Please inquire about details at booking if interested, and allow at least one week advance notice.
Interaktion mit Gästen
My guests are all fellow AIRBNB members - and most are independent. I welcome them into my home, and strive to make their stay and local experience memorable, comfortable, and FUN!. I respect their privacy, and expect them to respect mine, but I love to share the adventurous lives that are found here in SWLA.
I have created a very unique, one-of-a-kind gem, nestled in an environment that spurs creative thinking, artistic inspiration, relaxation, quiet reflection and meaningful conversation.... - OR- they can hear local storytelling, dine on world-class food & enjoy libations, music, dancing, laughing, let-your-hair-down type of celebrating...
So, it all depends what guests want., with as much or as little as they desire.... Some guests want to be left alone to do their own thing, while others want more guidance, and like to hear about things to do, places to see, and great food to eat. Sometimes my schedule is laid back and other times I must travel during the day and so it all depends. Guests who need more than usual... whether they want the entire place to themselves, or will need ideas, suggestions, or catered meals.... will need to check with me during booking to see what's possible during the time they will be staying here.

I have 2 dogs who live outside, and 2 small pups who live inside. All 4 are very sweet and affectionate.... but extremely well behaved and they will leave you alone, or interact with you, if invited, at a minimum. I love animals, but will only accept pets with a fee and if discussed at the time of making your reservation. Smoking is strictly limited to outside, but you've got 9-1/2 acres in which to smoke.
There really aren't a lot of rules around here, and the Golden Rule will usually suffice. Otherwise, please:
- do not hurt yourself or anyone else...
- do not destroy the environment (we share it)
- understand and be responsible in the area of consent in human relations, and please talk to someone if you have any questions.
