Comfortable house! Great landlord!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the Cajun Hostel! We rented the whole house for our family for Christmas. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and there are condiments in the pantry. The owner is very laid back and accommodating. We really enjoyed sitting out under the covered patio, as the weather was especially nice. We will be back.

we had a wonderful stay, nine of us. the house was clean, comfortable, and centrally located. the owner was flexible and readily available to answer questions, and even went above and beyond by providing wine by the bedsides! we'd easily stay here again.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, This property is actually an hostel when not rented out entirely. At the same time there is no excuse for the issues you had with the place. This is our most popular of our 5 locations, both when shared and rented out entirely. We strive to give all of our guests a 5 star experience and apologize that we did not meet your expectations. We will work diligently to solve these issues and we truly appreciate you taking the time to review our property. Sincerely, Toby Dore' Owner Cajun Hostel and Cajun Homes
