Studio Downtown

Studio Downtown

Our Studio Downtown is just one block away from our Downtown house. Perfect for two people, the Studio Downtown provides the coziness of an apartment while being within walking distance of great local restaurants and our Downtown scene.

This fully furnished Studio apartment is located in the heart of downtown Lafayette. It is an upstairs studio hidden nicely behind a duplex apartment. Walking out of the apartment, you in viewing distance of the very popular Parc San Souci which hosts various live music events and festivals throughout the year. This is also one of the most popular Mardi Gras parade route neighborhoods as you will quickly notice with the remnants of Mardi Gras beads from several years past. There is a garage downstairs so there are no downstairs neighbors, however, the duplex in the front is occupied.

This studio is approximately 400 square feet of living area with a full kitchen and private bathroom. There is a futon which sleeps 2 comfortably. An air mattress could be laid down if needed for extra guests. 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.
