What a wonderful experience we had with Jim and Christy at their uniquely quirky and delightfully private little bit of heaven. We came for the music of the Acadien Festival and were enchanted with the friendly folks and their exceptionally warmhearted embrace of us newcomers. We highly recommend the Whirlybird to all who want a slightly off the beaten road experience of hospitality, and funkiness.

Although the wifi here is fine, I'd suggest leaving electronics behind. You don't want anything to distract you from the joy that staying in the barn can offer you. I'd love to stay here for a month!

I cannot say enough about the warm southern hospitality that Jim and Christy showed us during our stay! We arrived on New Years eve, and were immediately welcomed with an invite to join in the NYE festivities that were about to get underway. We had such a great time! Jim and Christy seem very knowledgeable about the area, especially in terms of the local music scene. The accommodations were perfect! The common space is shared with the guests in the other bedroom and through this we met some other people that were fun to hang out with. The kitchen is very well equipped if you are into cooking (we are, but felt that our time there was too short to get into it, unfortunately). In case weather has you staying inside there is LOTS of great reading material -- some really nice books on local history etc. as well as many others - some of which I ordered for myself. Overall our stay was a great experience and we definitely hope to be back!

Aw.... I would tongue-in-cheek say, "Adrienne, don't exaggerate..." But, your review is similar to most reviews we get, so, it must be TRUE! Thank you, and Christy and I love that we are friends and we hope Y'all come back real soon... and get some more of that Southern Hospitality.

From the moment we stepped out of the car, we were made to feel welcomed and part of the fold. Jim was cheerful & truly happy to see us and show his fabulous grounds, veggie garden, blueberries, barn where other Airbnb guests stay and the new projects and buildings he is working on. They are pouring in their love and passion for creating a place that is very much connected with the local community, creative, musical, and fun in this magical corner of Louisiana. Christy made us a wonderful breakfast and the four of us shared a leisurely time chatting about music, local history, people we may know in common from their Bay Area days, and great stories of their trajectory to Opelousas. We stayed in the main house is a gorgeous red room, super comfortable bed and fell asleep to the sound of frogs and crickets outside. We could have stayed for days, and hope one day to return and do so! They are the poster children for what Airbnb is all about and why I love the Airbnb tribe!

Resposta de Jim - And, Of Course, Christy:
Christina and Mostafa, thanks for the warm and complimentary review. And, YES, now we have discovered each other - and, being of the same "tribe," we will cross paths again. Christy and I learned much from you both. Again, thank you for your thoughtful words.

Once again, our stay at the Whirlybird was the best! This was my second time to visit within the month, and I was SO glad to be back! Was glad to hang with Jim for a little while, and as always, I wish we could have stayed longer! Love this place!

Resposta de Jim - And, Of Course, Christy:
Once again - Christy and I like those words coming from you, Hayley. We love to make the connection. Christy's show is over now and she is around a lot more now. She tells me she missed spending more time with you and getting to know you better. You are both busy girls. We look forward to another chance - once again - to spend more time with you.

We definitely hope to see Y'all again. I'm sure your garden is keeping you busy - the tomatoes outside the Whirlybird are exploding with tomatoes. This is going to be a great year. Thanks for everything.

Hi, what can we say about ourselves? We think big. We have our own Folk Art Honky Tonk - The Whirlybird - and other large Folk Art buildings on our property. We are easy going, love to share and we are easy to find on the world wide web; soooo, besides an overnighter or two, …
