Holiday Rental House
If you want to vacation in a small southern town, famous for many things, with loads of adventures in the vicinity, on a quiet street, at a reasonable rate, AND have the whole house to yourself, then this is the place for you. Two blocks from downtown Breaux Bridge and six miles from the Lafayette, LA airport, Josephine’s House is a newly renovated one hundred year old, solid cypress house. The house was totally restored in 2008. We put in central air and heat so everyone will be comfortable. There are two bedrooms, one bath, a den, and a fully usable and equipped kitchen and laundry room. The main bedroom has a Queen bed and the other room two antique twin beds.

Both bedrooms and the den have flat screen TVs and ceiling fans. In traditional southern style it has a huge backyard with oak trees and a front porch perfect for rocking and having a relaxing evening. This is a no smoking house and we do not allow pets to be considerate of those with allergies. Within a 2 block walk you can eat at half a dozen places and go to the Cajun Breakfast at Cafe des Amis on Saturday morning. You Can walk to downtown Breaux bridge on the sidewalk from Josephine's House in less than 10 minutes. We are 2 blocks from St. Bernard Catholic Church, numerous restaurants, Joi de Vivre (a coffee shop that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner most days and has free wi-fi), 4-5 antique shops, Cajun Market Donut shop (opens at 4:30am), Bayou Teche and canoe rentals, and many other attractions. If you want to see alligators the Atchafalaya Basin is only 15 minutes away, Lake Martin is about 5 miles. There is always something going on in the area. I am only a short walking distance (10 minutes)from the Crawfish Festival Grounds, which is always held the first full weekend in May.More

A seemly small cottage with a grand feel. The owners have done a superb job with the space. It's perfectly imperfect! All of the amenities one needs or want. This home has a screened in back porch overlooking an immaculate back yard, washer, dryer and a fully equip kitchen. The decor is eclectic, bringing together the old and new. Our stay there was extremely comfortable to say the least. Located minutes away from everything but tucked away in a very peaceful neighborhood with friendly and polite folks. You'll love your stay here

This is our fourth time staying at Josephine's House, and we plan to return indefinitely. We love everything about the house and the town. It’s an easy walk downtown, and we enjoy sitting in the porch rockers to read when the weather is nice. There's even a ceiling fan on the porch (as well as in every room). Everything listed in the amenities is here - more towels and dishes than you could possibly need, plus good cookware in case you don't want to eat out every meal. Comfortable beds, good linens, lovely decorating. If you like Cajun music and/or dancing, there are about 20 places within an hour of Breaux Bridge that you can take advantage of. Andrea, who renovated and owns the house, is a sweetheart. This is just a lovely and comfortable place to stay - our home away from home!

Well located in Cajun Country this Cajun cottage was a highlight of our visit in the area. It is a great location to use as a base for touring and a welcome break from hotels and restaurants. t is historic but modernized. So charming! Very well appointed with high end furnishings but also providing great comfort. Beds were exceptionally comfortable. Full bathroom, laundry and a fully stocked kitchen so that we could go get our fresh seafood at Crawfishtown USA and then cook our our cajun feasts. It was spotlessly clean and Andrea was so friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend to others.

As you may notice, I debated about writing a review for Josephine's House. It's one of those best-kept secrets that I'm reluctant to share. This is truly a home away from home, welcoming, comfortable, surprisingly spacious, spotlessly clean, with every amenity that I could need or want. The owner is gracious, detail-oriented and focused on guest comfort. If you want to stay in-season, book now. But don't be turned off by going off-season. I was there for a month in deep summer and I couldn't have wished for a better, more comfortable stay. Don't wait for winter or Crawfish Festival. Breaux Bridge and its residents are charming any time of year. And Josephine's House is the ideal place to stay.

We are a retired couple and we rented Josephine's house for 4 days early april 2014. The pictures don't completely show the real charm of this house. Great restauration ! Our hostess, Andrea, is a true artist. Everything is perfect: bedding, kitchen, cleanliness, quiet and friendly neigborghood. The village of Breaux Bridge is also a gem. Don't miss Le Café des Amis on saturday morning (band and dance) and Angelle's Old Fashion Hamburgers. What can we add ? Just don't miss it !

We had two couples in our party. We wanted to have a south Louisiana neighborhood to enjoy the Cajun people and the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. This home was the perfect setting and location. The home was large enough for two married couples. All of the rooms in the home had a wonderful Cajun accent to them. Very colorful and roomy. Both the bedrooms and the kitchen was more than we expected. The location is great to travel to other parts of south Louisiana. The owner is an energetic young lady who made us fell at home and helped us in any way we asked. I would return to this home and would highly recommend the Josephine's House for a great Cajun experience.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful quiet, comfortable, relaxing four day stay at Josephine's House. The cottage is small, but big on character, charm, comfort, and amenities. We were welcomed to an immaculately clean, beautifully decorated cottage with a big bowl of fresh fruit, assorted snacks & breakfast items, a linen closet filled with fluffy towels, and an assortment of reading material including current local papers, magazines and local travel brochures. Andrea, the owner, has gone above and beyond to make Josephine's House a special little haven for her guests to enjoy. The location of the cottage is ideal for anyone wishing to travel and experience all that Cajun Country has to offer. During our stay we enjoyed the shops and restaurants of downtown Breaux Bridge and excursions out to explore nearby Avery Island, New Iberia, Lafayette, Henderson, St. Martinville, Sunset, Grand Coteau, and Arnaudville. We consider Josephine's House a Cajun home away from home and look forward to a future visit.
