Long-Term Rental - GREAT VALUE
Long-Term Rental - GREAT VALUE
We recently relocated to Lafayette and had to have a home built which was going to put us in temporary living arrangements for several months. As we have used VRBO on vacations, we decided to assess the potential to use this arrangement for a long-term rental. It worked out great. Instead of having to go to the trouble of finding an executive apartment (which would be very costly), or renting an apartment and then arranging for furniture and utlilities, we contacted the owner of this Condo and worked out al long term agreement which was very competitive compared to the market. I would highly recommend anyone considering living in a temporary home for any length of time to consider this rental option. Bring your clothes and move riight in... Too simple.

Owner response: Thank you so much for your review and your rental. I'm so glad it worked out so well for you. You all were the perfect guests. Anytime any of your fellow employees need temporary housing that is "move-in" ready, let me know. Gordon
This was the perfect place for our recent stay in Lafayette. The condo is very comfortable and in a great location. We had our vehicle and it only took minutes to get to where you needed to go. It looks exactly like the posted photos, it may even be better!! Gordon was a wonderful host and pays close attention to detail. There was a list of local restaurants for us to try, snacks and even wine. We would recommend this property to anyone that plans to visit Lafayette. Hope to stay here again for our next trip. Thanks Gordon for sharing this lovely condo!

First Visit to Lafayette
First Visit to Lafayette
Very nicely decorated clean condo located in quiet area with no street noise that could be heard. Comfortable bed that made us feel like at home. Friendly and professional owner provided requested local info along with a bottle of wine to greet our arrival. Only a few minor maintenance items needing attention caused us not to rate as Excellent. We enjoyed our three day stay here and would surely stay here again if we are in the Lafayette area.

Owner response: Ed, Nice to have you and your wife as guests . Please come back whenever you can. Thank you for pointing out the "once an hour" running of one of the toilets. The new mechanism will save on the water bill. Thanks. Gordon

Gordon....We wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to visit Lafayette with our entire family! Not only were we absolutely delighted with the 1st class accommodations,, but Zak and Grahm (the Aussies) were in heaven. The property itself is in a well established neighborhood abutting a gated community....felt very safe! In addition, it's centrally located in town and a short drive to seemingly everything we wanted to do. The listing accurately depicts the property which was spic and span when we arrived (except under the bed could be dusted - only know that because we had to go in search of toys upon departure). I apologize for the rain we got the last day which resulted in more muddy paw prints left behind than we would prefer when enjoying such a nice place. The programmed electronic key access was a fabulous feature. No keys to manage and go in search of, easy to remember code, and able to offer to our sister's camping in the area to gain access if we happened to be out walking the pups when they arrived to spend the day with us gadding about town. The nice note with places to visit/dine was appreciated. Seemingly right around the corner (not really,,,,but very close) we were delighted to find Zea Rotisserie and Grill. Enjoyed a delicious meal there our last night in town. Also tried the Blue Dog Cafe for Sunday brunch, PraJeans, Pamplona Tapas Bar (Valentine's night - don't miss the white sangria!!), Cafe des Amis (Saturday Zydeco breakfast....don't miss this!), and Fezzo's Seafood. Jolie's.....a l carte and EXPENSIVE! There are better places for the money to dine, but the artwork and ambiance were neat. We also very much appreciated the bowl of munchies, bottle of wine, beer, coffee, tea and condiments left for us to enjoy. Unlike many places we've visited you forgot nothing!! What a FABULOUS place and wonderful stay we enjoyed. Our 1st trip to Lafayette, but we had so much fun....if you'll have us, it won't be our last!! My parents stayed a week later in your one-BDRM unit and had nothing but positive feedback to offer, I only offer this because they likely won't get on the internet to offer their feedback, but know they left you a note. Truly a home away from home.....so comfortable for an extended stay when you arrive at your desired location. Able to do laundry on site in our spare time so we could just jump into our work week when we arrived home. Thank YOU so much for considering us and our extended family!!!

Owner response: Thank you Gwen for your very thorough and positive review. My list of "favorite places to eat" is incomplete, as illustrated by your list of places you visited, but it just goes to show how much Lafayette has to offer. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon! Gordon

We loved staying at this airy and tastefully decorated condo. It was so quiet and relaxing, just what we needed after a hectic day of sight-seeing. I sat out in the garden late one afternoon and could hear the birds singing - that's how quiet and private this place is. How nice to have a bathroom for each of us - that was a treat! We had a tremendous amount of fun in Lafayette and look forward to a return visit to both the city and to this condo.

The property was easy to access in a small condo development centrally located. Owner, Gordon, had a very nice bottle of wine and snacks available on our arrival. Very comfortable for three people. We would stay in this condo again with no hesitation. Property has been updated with granite countertops and new appliances as well as updated bathrooms.

Very comfortable, well kept property. The photos represent the actual condo very well. Excellent location, restaurants, galleries and entertainment venues nearby. Owner was very helpful with questions and welcoming us. I'll try to stay here on my next trip to Lafayette. Two suggestions: a toaster would have been nice and a list of grocery stores nearby.

Owner response: I appreciate your comments and I placed a toaster in condo for you and all other guests! Thank you.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 12 day stay here. The value for price is amazing. The landlord is a wonderful host, very helpful as well as being a very nice person! (There was a bottle of wine and snacks waiting when I arrived!) The remodel of this unit (in an older complex) is well done. The photos are spot-on accurate. The apartment has wifi (and a nice desk to work at), cable, artsy decor, wood floors and a fully functional kitchen. The master bed is comfortable :). I hope to rent it when I go back to Lafayette as I found it to be in a good location just a short distance from River Ranch and UL. I had a great experience renting this unit and I would recommend it to my family and freinds - in fact, I already have!

My husband and I recently stayed in this condo and we were absolutely delighted with our experience! We felt very fortunate to have selected this space for our stay in Lafayette. The interior design of the unit was gorgeous. The whole place felt very high-end. The owner has paid great attention to detail, and it is evident that he has an excellent sense of design. Additionally, he has thought of every comfort for his guests, from a welcome to the space bottle of wine and snacks, to laundry soap for the in-suite washer and dryer! The outdoor patio space was particularly restful to me, and helped to make the space have an out-of-doors feeling even when inside. In addition to being a beautiful, immaculate and well-appointed property, the location was perfect for us, as it was in a very nice section of Lafayette that was centrally located to the university and the downtown areas. I could easily, and very happily, live in this condo. In fact, I wish I did! I will definitely try to rent this unit every time I visit Lafayette which I hope will be often, especially since it was recently named "the tastiest town in the South" by Southern Living Magazine!

Owner response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to having you as guests in the future. Lafayette is a city with many attractions and my condo is in the middle of it all. As the seasons change, there will be many other reasons to come back to Lafayette. As your son is a design student at UL Lafayette, I know you will be a frequent visitor. Come back soon!
