About our area:

The area known as Old Arabi is made up of two historic districts: The Old Arabi Historic District, 150 acres bordering Jackson Barracks and the Mississippi River including parts of Mehle, Angela, and Esteban Streets, and the Friscoville Street Historic District, 160 acres from the 100-900 blocks of Friscoville. Old Arabi was named one of America's Prettiest Painted places in a 2012 nationwide search conducted by the Paint Quality Institute of America for the stunning use of color on the area's elaborate historical homes and buildings. It's close proximity to the French Quarter and no shortage of things to do right around our home, this is the perfect location to soak up everything Nola has to offer.

Getting Around our area:

New Orleans is a small city, which makes getting around a breeze in an Uber or Lyft. The French Quarter is an 15 minute drive away, which will never run you more than $15-20 depending on events and holiday seasons (which is even more affordable when you split it with your group!). Rates go up during events.

Laundry detergent & bleach

Dish soap

Trash bags

and there is an overflow of supplies in laundry room if need more.

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 Arabi

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.

Great rental for large groups visiting NOLA

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!! We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful and spacious home for my 40th birthday celebration. We had 10 people in our group and we had plenty of room to spread out and relax after long days hanging out in New Orleans. This home is a few miles from the French Quarter but a close enough drive to still be convenient. Booking with Jami was super easy and we had no problems at all with the rental/booking process. The home is in a very historic neighborhood as the listing describes and we had no issues whatsoever. Everyone that walked by was very friendly. Jami does provide a binder listing restaurants and things to do which turned out to be a great resource for the days we did not have anything planned. The house is filled with beautiful furnishings and is tastefully decorated. The architecture of the home is very nice. This home had every essential our group needed and that was great because we did not have to worry about bringing paper goods, laundry soap, etc. The group was very impressed that with 10 people we still had enough hot water and amazing water pressure for everyone to take a shower and not have any issues. I would definitely recommend staying at this property! It was an incredible birthday weekend that I will never forget!! Thanks Jami!

For a big group looking for a spacious house

  • 5 of 5


This house is spacious, with 5 large bedrooms, 3 big sofas and eating kitchen.

We saved a lot of money by choosing this house, instead of one in a touristy area.

The neighborhood is quiet and safe, and only 15 min Uber ride from the French quarter.

We stayed for Christmas and the owner had decorated the whole house, and had set up a Christmas tree for us, that was awesome!

She also provided a pack and play and a stroller for our baby.

We appreciated that the house had all the necessities: toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, dish soap, laundry detergent...

And the fenced garden was great for kids to run around and play.

The owner was quick to respond to my messages.


The house is for 10 guests, but the dining table seats only 6, so the rest of our group sat in the kitchen.

The curtains on the windows do not block light, so you'll likely be up with the first rays of sun.

There are rugs in the bathroom instead of bath mats, which doesn't seem super hygenic.

The wifi worked the first day, but was extremely slow after that. I messaged the owner and she's actually changing the router after our stay.

Over all very pleased with our stay, despite a few inconveniences.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house is gorgeous and very comfortable. It has a lovely back porch, only 15 minutes to the french quarter and good amenities. The owners where very easy to work with allowing us to have a late check out when our cruise ship arrived late to the port. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the house! It was more than we had expected. There was 7 in our party and we had more than enough space. Everything was clean and well stocked. We enjoyed the front and back porch. This is our favorite area because it so quiet but so close to everything. Well definitely stay in this house area again!!
