Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights and couldn't have asked for better. The wine and snacks were great, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook full meals for a family of four. The outside patio was great for morning coffee and grilling in the evening. The pool was fun for the kids and well shaded in the afternoon/evening. The building is off the main road, so it was quiet and had no traffic noise. Very convenient location and close to many great restaurants and other activities. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

Perfect Home Base

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in both of Gordon's condos for tennis tournaments held in Lafayette. The location is perfect, and it is so nice to have a comfortable place to retreat to in between matches and at the end of the day. Being able to stay in for dinner some nights, and conveniently do laundry, is also a big plus. Both of the condos are clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need. We will be back!

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a great part of town and in a nice, neat complex. It's close to a grocery store, pharmacy and restaurants.

Rest assured, the property is exactly like the photos. Everything was clean and very well maintained. The amenities were plenty too. I really appreciated the well stocked kitchen.

Gordon was very responsive, helpful and hospitable. He even had a bottle of wine waiting for me!

I would definitely recommend this property.

Works well for two couples.

  • 5 of 5

It was clean, quiet, nicely decorated, convenient parking. We liked the setup of rooms.

The wine, beer and snacks on arrival were lovely.

Gordon was easy to contact (although we didn't have any issues) and friendly and attentive as we arrived.

We went to four or five of the restaurants that Gordon recommended on his welcome sheet, and liked all of them. ?? Rusted Rooster, Bread and Circus, Don's Seafood, thai restaurant, can't remember all of them. Albertsons grocery store is very near by; we joked about how often we stopped by to pick up a thing or two.

The only issue for us was that we came to Lafayette for the Festival Internationale and would have liked to walk from the condo, but it was a long way and along busy streets. Parking downtown turned out not to be an issue, so we just drove, and that worked out fine.

Would definitely recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and your review. There are a lot more restaurants on that recommended list and many, many more not able to be on the list. Lafayette has a plethora of great restaurants and cafes. Come back again soon. Gordon

My stay at the beautiful condo in LaFayette

  • 5 of 5

I had trouble locating the place at first because to me it looked like the exterior of an older apartment complex. But once you get inside the place you get a totally different impression. It is a beautiful condo with everything you could possibly want for your stay. I would love to have that place as my own home. I was in Lafayette visiting my in-laws so I did not get as much of a chance to enjoy the place and the city as I would have liked to. But I did enjoy relaxing in the mornings after cooking my breakfast, reading out on the patio in the afternoon and enjoyed watching movies in the evening. The place is very clean and has any amenity that you may need.

I enjoy being outdoors and hiking/walking. So I took a stroll in the nearby Girard Park that is very close to the condo. I also took a drive to Avery Island where I visited and walked in their Jungle Gardens. I also took a very short walk in the Acadiana Park Nature trails but did not last long there because I was torn up my mosquitos (be sure and use bug spray if taking this walk) ha ha

I will definitely stay at this condo when I go back to Lafayette. It is gorgeous and has everything that I need. It is very convenient to everything that I wanted to go to. I want to thank the owners for the use of their beautiful home.

Owner's Response: What a great review. I love that the complex and the condo got better and better the closer you looked! Sort of a secret garden in a way. Come back anytime. Lafayette and the surrounding area has so many wonderful things to learn about and explore. Gordon

Enjoy the condo and its location.

  • 4 of 5

Gordon has provided a great place to stay while in Lafayette. He has truly been available any time we had questions. The condo is charming and inviting. Love the art work. He goes above one's expectation to have supplies available. He provides lots of information on dining and recreation in the area.. Thanks Gordan! Looking forward to our next visit.

Lafayette Regional Airport - LFT

It is located in the heart of Lafayette close to downtown, the University of Louisiana, Lafayette General Hospital, the Oil Center and Girard Park. There are two major festivals - one downtown and one in Girard Park. Lafayette is known for its restaurants and friendly atmosphere. It is also located close to Red Lerille's Health Club and many other activities.

Lafayette has already been named the 'happiest city in America' but can now boast of a new accolade: 'best college town weekend getaway.'

“USA Today” editors nominated 20 cities for its 10 Best Reader’s Choice contest for Best College Town Weekend; Lafayette, La., was voted No. 1.

The contest website describes the Hub City as “a wonderful spot to settle in to a B&B and enjoy a weekend of hearty southern food, historical attractions, unique culture and heritage.”

According to “USA Today,” college towns possess a “fun, youthful vibe and unexpected shopping options. Restaurants, bars and entertainment are typically plentiful and affordable.”

So, you should just 'come on down' and enjoy our college atmosphere and 'youthful spirit!' And this wonderful condo.
