This fully furnished Studio apartment is located in the heart of downtown Lafayette. It is an upstairs studio hidden nicely behind a duplex apartment. Walking out of the apartment, you in viewing distance of the very popular Parc San Souci which hosts various live music events and festivals throughout the year. This is also one of the most popular Mardi Gras parade route neighborhoods as you will quickly notice with the remnants of Mardi Gras beads from several years past. There is a garage downstairs so there are no downstairs neighbors, however, the duplex in the front is occupied.
Please check rates for SPECIFIC DATES as I discount rates regularly!!! There will be rate increases for Festival International, Festival Acadien, Mardi Gras, Gulf Brew, Blackpot Festival, and the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. I have another home that I rent out on airbnb. It includes a Guest bedroom, Master Bedroom, and Bunk Beds that are also available for rent separately.
This studio is approximately 400 square feet of living area. Full Kitchen and private bathroom as seen in the pictures. There is a futon which sleeps 2 comfortably. An air mattress could be laid down if needed for extra guests.
The kitchen is stocked with cooking supplies and condiments. I typically have food available unless I am gone for an extended stay. Guests are welcome any food items in the kitchen included food that I have cooked for myself or previous guests.
High-speed fiber optic wireless internet is available. This apartment does does not have a designated parking spot, however, parking is available on the street or across the street in nearby lots. In high traffic times such as Mardi Gras and Festival International, there may be attendant on duty charging to park in the Don's Seafood parking lot.
