Der Wohnraum

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 on 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 private bathroom and separate exercise room. It is almost 700 SF with 3 queen beds, 2 sofas, a pool table and a private bathroom that includes a deep soak tub with shower and a sink. The bedroom is furnished with two occasional chairs and a small leather sofa, an antique roll-top desk, and a small 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.

Zugang für Gäste

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, and private, catered gourmet meals are sometimes available by special request, for a small extra charge. Please inquire 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.

MARDI GRAS - This part of the state has the Courir de Mardi Gras, which is closer to the original version of the rural French celebration, a pre-Lenten day of revelry. Mardi Gras Day is always on Tuesday, and it falls anywhere from early February to mid-March. Mardi Gras means "Fat Tuesday" and it's always the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the beginning of Lent, and is always 46 days before Easter, which can fall on any Sunday from March 23 to April 25, with the exact date to coincide with the first Sunday after the full moon following a spring equinox... Yea. Dates for the next 4 years: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
- Festival International - Late April - (URL HIDDEN) "Festival" is FREE, and includes hundreds of bands from all over the world, playing on 5 separate stages, that are set up in public parks and other locations in downtown Lafayette. It is usually the week before the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, but there are no $75 daily tickets to buy or long lines to stand in for food, water or bathrooms.... because it's FREE, and you can come and go as you like!

My home is open to children including infants, so long as their parents take 100% of the responsibility for making sure they stay safe. My house was once "child-proof", but a long-time-ago reverted to adult-proof only... neither the 1000+ SF of outdoor decks nor the inside stairway have railings, and their are multiple bodies of water that non-swimmers should avoid.
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.
The entire house and/or the house and property are available for large groups by special arrangement, requested well in advance, and with a $500, non-refundable deposit and cleaning fee. Other details apply.
Smoking is strictly limited to outside, away from the house, but you've got about 10 acres in which to smoke.

Other than that, there really aren't a lot of other 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.

Bill's house was great for our family. While I was concerned about my toddler breaking something in Bill's house, he made us feel very comfortable that he wasn't worried about anything our child could break. I feel like Bill sensed my anxiety about this and put us at ease. But close supervision is highly recommended, as I'm sure Bill will tell you. We also had our Golden Retriever with us and he got along well with Bill's dogs. All that being said, we will definitely stay with Bill and will be recommending other family members to stay with him if they go visit the area. We stayed in the Bayou Billiards Suite and our little boy loved it. I'm not sure he's even seen a pool table before, but he was busy for a long time rolling balls into the pockets and setting them back up. Bill was very welcoming to our family who live near by. He cooked a dinner for us in honor of my father's birthday, and invited some of the family that live locally to join us. A great meal befitting our picky appetites (Caesar salad, chicken parm, pizza, and peach pie). Bill was great company during dinner. We were able to do our laundry and the water pressure in the shower was great (after we spent 4 nights in hotels/motels). Bill was great about our departure time. The house itself is very unique and Bill also has some neat art as well. We would highly recommend Bill's home as a place to stay for a responsible group/family. I should also mention my brother rented the adjoining room and we had the top floor to ourselves, which was great. We were able to hang out downstairs in the main living room/kitchen area as well.

Bill is awsome and his house in front of the bayou is wonderful! It was a pleasure to spend one night there and moreover, to stay with Bill during the evening and the dinner that he prepared for us! We spoke a lot with him and it was a great moment : we learned many things about the life and people in USA and also how to make a delicious crawfish étouffée (which is a speciality of Louisiana!). The room is very confortable, with a king bed and a beautiful sight on the bayou and the nature arround the house. Thanks for this incredible experience and all your tips Bill ! :-)

We spent a great time at Bill's place. Bill was very helpful, advising us in many ways, at any time and he also made us feel at home, as soon as we arrived. We shared wonderful moments especially when he cooked his delicious "crawfish étouffée" for us. He is such a good cook and so pationate! Bill est à l'écoute et fait tout son possible, très spontanément pour que votre séjour se déroule au mieux. La maison, au cœur d'une nature exubérante est spacieuse et décorée avec originalité. Une belle rencontre que nous ne sommes pas prêts d'oublier. Bertrand, Claire et Sylvaine, from France

Claire and her family were enthusiastic visitors and guests, and they seemed to enjoy the joie de vivre of South Louisiana culture. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to host and to assist them while they were in the Lafayette area.

Staying at Bills place was truly an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived we were treated with world renowned Southern hospitality. The house and surrounding jungle is just beautiful, listening to the sounds of the cicadas gives you a true feeling of being down South. We were craving some good home cooked food and Bill delivered! We got to try some locally sourced quality southern food that Bill cooked perfectly- this guy can cook! The room and bed were extremely comfortable and we loved spending time relaxing in the house. The dogs that live at the house are just gorgeous- seriously you won't meet cuter. The location is good also- far enough away to feel like you are in nature but close enough to get groceries or visit one of the many little towns that are nearby. When it came time to leave we both felt very sad, definitely the sign of a good stay. We look forward to visiting again- our second home in the south!

Nutzerprofil von Bill

I don't get to travel as much as I’d like, but when I do, I like to either stay right smack in the middle of the heartbeat of the big cities, or way out in the country, close to the edge of wide-open areas or near the edge of the wilderness. But, in either spot, I always want to make sure that I stay in REAL people's homes, and not in sterile, cookie-cutter hotels. My place is as close to a hybrid of these two ideals as I could find, at least for this part of the country. While I am less than 20 minutes from downtown Lafayette, LA, my home is nestled into a long ½ mile strip of wooded land, and bordered on one side by the small, but historically significant, Bayou Bourbeau. I share my home not only because it’s a very comfortable place to hang out, but because I have plenty of room leftover from my 5 kids who have all moved on, and who have their own homes, or are living away at college.
I believe that I live in one of the best places to EAT on planet earth, and I love to eat all types of foods. I have been cooking the local cuisine since I was 19, and can satisfy virtually any palate or craving, at least with a little bit of advance notice. When eating out, or traveling myself, I love to eat anything that's locally sourced, especially aromatic, spicy, ethnic foods which are my favorites. At home, I cook for myself almost every night, and if you stay with me for longer than a few days, we will most likely have a chance to share a meal. After your booking, and whenever my schedule allows, I always try to send an email to my future guests, with questions about whether they would like food included in some or all of their stay. If having food cooked for you and your party during most or all of your stay with me is something you might like, please let me know and I can send you a sample menu of what I can offer for groups to select from. For couples or individual needs, we can make anything happen, so don’t hesitate to ask, because I always strive to be very flexible. On the flip side and during my own travels, I sometimes like to cook a meal or two while staying with other Hosts, and I always invite them to eat whatever I cook at their place, if they would like.
