Overview

About the property

Beautiful 3-Bedroom, 3-Bath Home With A Private Yard, Gorgeous Pool, and Hot Tub

Our home is located in a quiet, residential area in the heart of Lafayette. It feels very private and safe (single-family homes with yards and driveways, lots of trees), but is minutes away from major streets, shops, restaurants, etc. The house is very spacious and light with an open concept and new furnishings throughout. The large master suite is located in the back of the house with direct access to the pool area.

About Claire Willhite

Hello, I'm Claire. I am originally from New England but live in San Francisco, California. My husband was born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana and we purchased a home there to be able to spend more time with family.

Claire Willhite purchased this house in 2011

Why Claire Willhite chose Lafayette

We LOVE Lafayette! Owning a home there means lots of time with family, who are just down the road and all over the general area. We fell in love with this particular house partly due to its convenient location, but mostly for the privacy and layout. The backyard and pool area are completely private, and feel like a tropical oasis. We love the layout of the house and the open feel. It's the perfect place for our family of 3 (we each have our own bathroom!) and it's also an ideal location for hosting our family, especially with our large dining area, outdoor patio, and swimming pool.

What makes this house unique

The yard is beautifully landscaped and maintained, with charming touches throughout (statues, wind chimes, a fish pond, outdoor seating and benches, a little pergola, etc.). There are also various areas available for meals, including seating at the breakfast bar, a kitchen table, a large dining table that seats 10, and an outdoor eating area which is protected by the sun (and has a ceiling fan!) and looks out into the pool area. The living room is central to the open home and has beautiful couches and a 50 inch television. We find that staying at the house feels like a real home as well as vacation getaway--the best of both worlds.

Just What We Were Looking For

  • 4 of 5

Our son was married in Lafayette. We wanted a relaxing place to stay and have plenty of room for dressing - something a hotel cannot accommodate. There were 6 adults in our party, and the house was a perfect place for us to relax and prepare for the weekend of festivities.

The house is clean and comfortable. The third bathroom is actually attached to the master bath and accesses the pool and hot tub area. This was not a problem for us.

The only disappointment was the lack of needed items. Every VRBO we've rented (and there have been many) provided hotel sized toiletries and a few kitchen necessities such as coffee, sugar, creamer. This was not the case so prepare in advance for that.

Overall, it was a good house for the price and met our needs.

The house is great for a family. We had a wonderful time in the pool and lounging on the patio. The owner was easy to work with and very responsive. Highly recommended.
