Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Lafayette - Lafayette Living

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 Louisiana

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.

comfortable relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfy house. Very open house plan, and so much room! really , everything we needed was available to use, from utensils, to paper products, to dishes and cookware. and the sun porch? with the long, beautiful table? We sat there most of the time enjoying the space and visiting. The yard with a pool was great to enjoy as well. This is a nice neighborhood and we would love to visit again. A home away from home.

Wonderful haven in the midst of the Louisiana floods

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Claire's house in August for our daughter's wedding. The gardens, fish pond and pool outside are amazing. Our experience was a bit unusual since the rains came and we were preparing for a wedding in the midst of the "1000 year" flood. We still were able to have enough room in the house to make all the bridal bouquets and have the hair and and makeup done for the bride and bridesmaids. The house was such a welcome retreat from the stress of dealing with the flooding in other parts of the city. Claire's sister was very helpful in making sure we were ok and so very nice. If we come back to Lafayette again, we will stay here! You should too!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials. The pool was great. Communication with the host was quick. The house is located close to many shopping and dining options. The third bathroom is off the back of the master, and mainly for pool use. The diningroom is mostly windows, which is beautiful but warm this time of year. The house was perfect for our large family. Thank you Clair!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had the pleasure of staying in Claire's home over a four day weekend. The house is beautifully decorated,spacious and very comfortable. Everything was in tip top shape just as described. Claire provided detailed information before our departure and her family lives down the street should any problems arise. The back yard is the real treat! A beautiful pool,patio and hot tub situated among a peaceful landscape and very private. The neighborhood is quiet and residential yet we were just minutes from main streets with plenty of great restaurants,shopping and drive thru daquirie bars ( new concept for us). It is also very close to the university ,Cajun dome and downtown. I recommend eating at randol's for good food,live music and dancing. I would definitely recommend this home and will stay here again if ever in Lafayette.
