Thank You, Kesten. In fact, my ONLY regret is that I did not get to spend more time with you & Liz. I hope y'all return - and if you do, then we'll remedy that !! Keep in mind our International Festival in late April - the Swamp Tour is even more spectacular then, with a rookery full of young egrets !! Thanks for choosing to stay with me.

Lafayette is an incredible town with wonderful people, like Joe, a very interesting and caring person. We felt like home from the first minute we went inside. joe's house is lovely, and he makes the best cajun coffee ever!! We were really glad to discover the acadian culture. …

It's so rare to have guests who feel like an extension of your own family right away : funny, considerate, easy-going, and ready for FUN at the drop of a hat ! I especially appreciated your research and willingness to go OFF OF the beaten path to take in the rural areas such as Suire's Country Grocery and the Gulf Route along coastal Louisiana - what a side trip that must have been !! Come again !

I have stayed at dozens of Airbnbs but Joe and Danielle stand out above the rest. I went to Lafayette for a job interview and they went completely out of their way to give me a tour of the city. When I was unable to rent a car they even drove me to my interview! They were gre…

THANK YOU Bre Molloy. Your success as a future as a TV Correspondent seems assured. We loved driving you around to your various interviews and out on the town dancing and meeting the locals. We love our guests ... and always try to enrich their visit in whatever ways we can, including driving them to the airport 150 miles away !! Hope your flight home was great !!

Joe is a great host. We stay just one night in Lafayette. The hospitality of Joe is remarkable. He tells us about all we need : bar, music, swap tour. I absolutely recommend him if you travel at Lafayette, Louisiana.

I think the entire stay in Lafayette would not have been the same without Joe. He helped me planning my stay, gave me tips and also came with me for some tours. The house is at 5 min walk to the city centre and the bed was very comfortable.

Response from Storyteller Joe:
Luca is a special traveler. He has that special dual quality of being well-prepared, having researched an area, AND YET, Luca is willing to listen to extra information that comes along. That's rare ! I also enjoyed his company, and going WITH a guest is a rare treat AND one i do not often do ! But Luca was extraordinary. I hope to visit him in Dublin Ireland or Southern Italy one day !
