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 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 and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this home. It was very convenient to restaurants, shopping and grocery stores. The kitchen was well equipped to cooking, which we did each morning! Our boys enjoyed the large size TV to watch their sports while we were there. The in-laws each enjoyed their bedrooms with the bathroom in the middle they could both share. I loved that the master bedroom was off the kitchen and very cool and quiet. I would recommend staying in this home for any family gatherings!

6 ladies

  • 3 of 5

I would have given this house a higher rating had all the bathrooms been usable. It's definitely a quirky house that has been added and converted over time. Our main reason for renting this house was the 3 bed/3 bath. The master bedroom has a bath, two sinks, a toilet that looks like a weird throne (nobody used this one) and a shower for a 4 foot tall person. If you walk through the master closet there is a door at the end and this leads to a real bathroom with a shower, toilet on the floor and one sink (It's the pool bath). You can also access from the outside but nobody wanted to walk outside with a key to get into that bathroom and felt weird walking through the master too. The two guest bedrooms mostly shared one bath.

The backyard was very nicely landscape with a pool and it was enjoyable as well as the outdoor dining. The kitchen/laundry had everything we needed, too.

The fire alarms seemed to not work and actually had an old battery on the door frame in one area.

Overall, we had a good time even though the bathrooms were challenging for 6 ladies.
