From the outside this house looks tiny, but there were three spacious bedrooms, two baths, an equipped kitchen, two seating areas, a porch and a cute private patio area in the back. There were bottles of wine and chocolates for each guest room, free wi-if and we were close to everything! We would definitely go back! Two parking spaces off street were very convenient.

Just as advertised this cozy bungalow was close to the park, restaurants and activities. There were bottles of wine and chocolates for each guest room, and we really enjoyed having a place for our group to crash between activities. There was s cute enclosed patio area at the back of the house for relaxing as well. Wifi was convenient. A greAt time!

Location! Location! Location!

If you are attending an event in Downtown Lafayette, you cannot get closer to the action than this. Three couples enjoyed drinks on the patio then walked to Gallery R, Agave, Parc San Souci, and Tsunami.
