Bunkie Reviews

3 reviews
The sense of community in this area is formed by friendly people that wants to spend happy times together either cooking or celebrating something. The atmosphere on the area is very quiet and peaceful. The neighborhood is pretty much formed by families with kids.
Review Bunkie
I am renting a house in Bunkie and I would choose to live there again. The neighborhood is clean and composed by really nice people that help you any time you need. At the same time the community is really nice and usually the neighbors get together and cook in the weekends.
I had never heard about any crime in my neighborhood. The police acts really fast and some of them live in my neighbor.
