Could You See Yourself Staying/Living In One Of These?

You are currently viewing Could You See Yourself Staying/Living In One Of These?

Have you ever stayed at an airbnb? For the last 3 years my family as loved staying in unique properties across the US and with viewing over 2000 properties in 2022, I can honestly say Acadiana has potential! Having been to every state except Alaska and Hawaii I can also say that South Louisiana is with out a doubt unique with culture and personality. Sit back and relax as I share with you current AirBnBs as well as hidden gems that could be!

Luxury Estate in Louisiana

FIRST STOP – Kidder Oaks – 427 & 425 Kidder Rd in Carencro

First we will head to I-49 exit 4 and continue heading North. If you are from Acadiana we may think alike that you are likely to find a house with a larger lot most likely acres of land and hills of course! Well 427 & 425 Kidder Road in Carencro is just that. Not only will you find an estate with 100 year oaks and pecan trees, chef’s kitchen and an architect designed pool house, you will also find Kidder Oaks- a guest cottage with a unique designer AirBnB flair. Check out the #BeforeAndAfter transformation.

Newly Renovated White and Black Bathroom

Spacious Primary Suite in Kidder Oaks Guest Cottage

So after photographing this estate, I realized there was so much more to the main house. Of course I liked the vibe there so much that I wanted to move in, but after chatting with the homeowner I realized there was so many things you couldn’t see that made this estate even more intriguing and puts this current listing in our #MustSeeOnTheMarket category.

Let’s talk details…
1- The pool is heated as well as comes with a care taker system (cleans itself and is self leveling).
2- The house is surrounded by river stone which catches the rain water and runs it down into a waterfall.
3- The front porch and balcony are made with the repurposed pecky cypress from the main house remodel.
4- The screen in balcony allows for year round use and offers relaxing sounds and views of nature.

FINAL STOP – 14336 Dalton in Kaplan, La

Finally we have arrived at our last destination even further south in Kaplan, Louisiana. I know I know you may be thinking what’s in Kaplan! I had no idea I was heading to an island! Although this estate is currently a home away from home for its’ owners, this would make an exceptional AirBnB with 14 acres to enjoy.

Possible airbnb or home away from home

From flying in on the helipad to fishing, kayaking, strolling through the pecan orchard, watching the horses at the farm nearby or enjoying the panorama views in the sunroom over looking the lake, I would be honored to spend a few days on this island.
