    Been here since January 3, 2024. So far its been great. Much more calm and quiet than where we lived in Georgia. I just wish there was a washer and dryer inside our apartment.

Living in Lafayette, LA

Lafayette is the most populous city of Lafayette Parish, located along the Vermilion River in Louisiana. It's considered one of the best places to live and rent in Louisiana, famous for its southern hospitality, local cuisine, and musical venues. Renting professionals, families, and students are drawn by the city's growing economy, high-ranking universities, and relatively low cost of living. The weather in Lafayette is warm, with a humid subtropical climate that brings average temperatures between 52°F and 83.5°F throughout the year. Renters relocating from colder areas will appreciate the hot summers and mild, damp winters, although they should be wary of hurricane season. The warm weather and proximity to lakes, ponds, swamps, and bayous make Lafayette the ideal spot for boating, fishing, and kayaking for renters of all ages.

Renting in Lafayette, LA

While most people living in Lafayette are homeowners, various styles of renter households are also available: historic homes, single-family mansions, and apartments located in the central or rural parts of town. Bendel Gardens and Freetown are suburban traditional neighborhoods with mid-century homes, but renters can find affordable apartments in neighborhoods like Suburban Acres and University Area. There are also several Traditional Neighborhood Developments (TNDs) in Lafayette: Olde Towne at Millcreek, Sugar Mill Pond, River Ranch, and Couret Farms. These planned communities have upscale residential homes and rental apartments within walking distance of all lifestyle amenities. Renters in Lafayette have the right to a habitable rental unit but are responsible for paying rent on time. The landlord may withhold a security and pet deposit to offset any damage during the rental period, while renters insurance is not mandatory. In case of lease agreement’s termination, both the renter and landlord should provide timely written notice.
