About Jami Dimitrios

Paul an I love New Orleans. We were born and raised here. We have 4 wonderful children and we have fostered 6 amazing children. This home is our family home, we lived here until Hurricane Katrina. Paul is an Architect, It He spent 5 exhausting years renovating this diamond in the rough! This home has some much heart in it!! We also had to re-renovate the home after hurricane Katrina in 2005. It took over 2 years to renovate it after hurricane Katrina. That's all behind us now and we are happy to be able to share our wonderful home with visiting Guest.

Paul & Jami Dimitrios


Jami Dimitrios purchased this house in 1994

Why Jami Dimitrios chose USA

We chose to turn it into a rental Home because we love the historic and comforting feel of this 150 year old home. We enjoy sharing this wonderful home with travelers who want to visit what new orleans has to offer. We are grateful and blessed that everyone that steps foot into our home loves it too! Come visit us, We know you will love it!

What makes this house unique

I know you will enjoy the architecture this home has to offer. The floor to ceiling windows in the front of the house are devine. The dormers windows upstairs are 100 years older than the actual home, and they are wonderful. Relaxing on the swing on the front porch is my favorite.

Wonderful Spacious House Very Close to French Quarter

  • 5 of 5

House is very nice and spacious well maintained, very clean. 4.6 miles away from French quarter. Our family and I were evacuating from Florida Keys for Hurricane Irma. We really enjoyed our time there. Owner was extremely nice as I got to contact her via e-mail and text as we had just a little inconvenience trying to book through website.

Will definitely book again in future when vacationing to New Orleans.

Great house. Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We Stayed here for 2 nights for a conference. A group of 7 ladies, We are so thankful we stayed here. It had Brand new furniture in living room with a sofa bed that definitely came in handy. The house was extremely clean and comfortable.

We had an issue with the dryer going out but we called the owner right away and we had a brand new dryer that day when we came back from dinner and a nice bottle of wine for the inconvenience from the owner. They were awesome and house is a treasure of history. Thank you for sharing this home with us. We will be back.

With some work this house would be a fantastic find!

  • 1 of 5

First let me say; New Orleans is a incredible City and the owner of this property was nothing less than accommodating. The house was conveniently located and this convenience enhanced my overall opinion of New Orleans and its people.... some other positives include; comfortable beds and huge bedrooms. Quiet and friendly neighborhood that made for a relaxing stay (when my friend's and I weren't enjoying the French Quarter). Another welcoming convenience; the owner went out her way to make sure we seen a PPV event (boxing match). House was well stocked with supplies and both the front and back porch added to the overall beauty of this huge family home...

But... two major concerns I feel should be immediately addressed:

1. There were major mold spores throughout the entire home (bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathrooms). There was mold on the bedroom ceiling directly above where I slept. A few of us who were staying here began showing signs of mold exposure (throat irritation, itchy eyes and coughing).

2. This property also had a seroius cockroach issue. My friends and I were killing water bug size roaches our entire stay (inside the home... kitchen, living room and bathroom).

Some other inconvieneces:

1. Dishwasher was broke.

2. The cable was very limited (below basic) No ESPN!!! Drove my friends and I crazy.

3. The downstairs central air would not turn off unless you removed the face of the unit.

I hate to have to rate my stay as low as I did because my friends and I feel this home offered more positives than negatives but those few negatives were unsightly and unhealthy...

Owner's Response: This home is a fantastic find. I'm sorry but this review doesn't reflect my home. NOTE TO GUEST: Call me if something is broken or not right! I'l do my best to fix it." Dishwasher was not broken the breaker tripped. This guest failed to notify me that the A/c would not turn off which caused humidity and build up condensation on all my A/c vents. The thermostat was broken and I had it immediately fixed. We care for our home very much and if something is not right we ask all guest to notify us immediately so we can fix anything thats broken. We also have an annual pest control contract but we do live in Louisiana and well "there's bugs in Louisiana." Future guest- Please Don't base any decisions on this review because you will miss out! Thank you . Jami & Paul
