The Crest

The Crest

Our home On the Crest is great for guests who want to enjoy Downtown as much as they want to explore the rest of our city. This is a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom fully furnished Cajun Home located near downtown (1 mile/1.6 km) Lafayette, LA. However, it is also positioned no more than 15 minutes away from any destination in Lafayette, our On the Crest listing is as close to central Lafayette as one can get.

Our On the Crest home can hold 8-12 guests at one time or guests can rent by the room and/or bed as we have two private rooms and a 5 person dorm-style room. We also can provide a queen size air mattress upon request.

This home has a total of 8 rooms and 1400 square feet of living area. It's complete with a full kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one shower, one bathtub) a large living room, large dining room, and an open studio room with bunk beds. The Master Bedroom has a Serta Memory Foam queen size mattress and the guest bedroom has a full size/double bed. There is also a large and very comfortable couch in the living room which could make a bed for a ninth person.

The kitchen is stocked with cooking supplies and condiments. We typically have food available in the pantry. Guests are welcome to any food items in the kitchen, including food that I have cooked for myself or other guests. Also, there is a full-service grocery store called Piggly Wiggly less than 1/2 mile (0.8 km) away.
