About Rachel Leonards
I was born and raised in South Louisiana and couldn't imagine living anywhere else! I'm a local through and through; I was raised in the small town of Rayne and moved to Lafayette to attend ULL and was lucky enough to stay local working as an engineer in the Broussard area. As much as I've enjoyed the city life my husband, Patrick, and I decided to pack up and move to the suburbs to be closer to our jobs and have a little more space for our future family. We've always wanted to get into the investment property business so our Lafayette condo is our first of (hopefully) many more to come!
Rachel Leonards purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Rachel Leonards chose Lafayette
I've spent the past few years renovating this condo and making it into something I think everyone can enjoy. This complex was originally built in the 1970's and has great bones but definitely needed modernizing which is why I've spent much time and effort updating the layout, fixtures and overall design decor to fit in with the current times. And honestly I believe this location is second to none in Lafayette, it is in a well established area and truly central to all things in town and near some of the nicest neighborhoods in the city. My mom had pretty high standards when it came to approving a place for me to live when I was young and single and she was quick to vote this place as her top pic; luckily mom's always right and I'm glad I listened to her wise guidance all those years ago (it was hard to see her vision when I knew I'd have to remodel every single room - but so worth it)!
What makes this Condo unique
Every guest that chooses to stay with us is always welcomed with a snack basket full of our favorites (some salty and sweet treats and of course wine!), a Keurig coffee maker with Community Coffee K-cups and sugar/creamer and a few bottles of water chilling in the refrigerator for you! We've recently added a couple a couple super cute and fun basket swing chairs to the balcony to make the outdoor space even more enjoyable! It does get pretty warm in south Louisiana but the two fans on the balcony help to get that air circulating while sipping your morning coffee or enjoying an evening cocktail outside.

Clean and comfortable
Good property but was disappointed that pool was dirty. I went ahead and cleaned most of it myself because I really got that place for the pool for some relaxation. The condo was very clean and comfortable. We are not very tech savvy people, so we had difficulty using front TV and NEST thermostat. Figured it out the day we had to leave. All in all, it was just fine for us.
Love this place
Stayed in a fair amount of these places and this is certainly one of the best outfitted I’ve seen. Seemed like everything one could need is provided, from toiletries to kitchen gear to beach towels to snacks and a nice bottle of wine. It is well represented by the photos. Thanks Rachel!
Perfect location very quiet complex.
The process was beyond easy. I had the best experience with the owners who made the process enjoyable. Thanks again
Fabulous place to stay
Loved this place! Beautifully decorated and very welcoming! The location is terrific too!
Very clean and spacious. Loved the vintage style. Enjoyed the porch and swings!
Loved it all around! The pool was a bit out dated because that was one of the reasons we chose this spot. The condo in its self made the pool a nonfactor. I personally was concerned about our noise level for the neighbors. My friends are loud talkers and we stayed up pretty late. We all loved it!! Rachel and Pat were awesome and I appreciated the personal note, bottle of wine,water and snacks they had out for us. Very nice!
Very well appointed and maintained.
Very nice facility. Had everything you need to just sit and zone or prepare to hit the road. Nice touch with the various snacks and the bottle of wine. The location was great...close to everything that was planned for our trip. An added feature would be a couple of chaise lounges to sit by the pool which only has chairs.
Overall a super place to stay!
