House, 4 Bedrooms + 3 Baths,
This is a beautifully restored four bedroom single home. It is 3 miles (10 minutes) from the French Quarter in the safest neighborhood in the city. The house has 12 foot ceilings. There are 3 full baths. This house has all of the character of an old New Orleans home. I have Wifi, a complete kitchen and a large yard that has newly built pergola with a patio set. From the house, it is nice to watch cruise ships, river boats and other vessels traveling on the Mississippi River. Also, there is off street parking. This is the safest area in the city! Unlike New Orleans, we have plenty of police in Arabi and they do not tolerate any riff-raft coming here to commit crimes. Arabi is in St.Bernard Parish(county). My wife and I love New Orleans. We have our favorite restaurants and places to go in New Orleans, but we love coming back to our house in St. Bernard Parish to safely sleep at night with peace of mind.

About Larry Landry
I am the property owner. I live locally.
Why Larry Landry chose Arabi
This place is close to everything. My family has been living in the neighborhood since I was a child. It's large roomy home with plenty of parking. It is only 10 minutes away from the french quarter. My wife and I love New Orleans and all that it has to offer, but we love coming back to sleep in this safe neighborhood
What makes this House unique
This is a crime free neighborhood. It is close to all of New Orleans' main attractions.

Great Rental Experience
OK, let me start by saying Larry is an excellent owner with whom to work. His response to inquiry were always super fast and he was very friendly. He was delightful.
The house itself is everything the photos show. Important things to know about the house that we must have missed in the description: Neither stand alone bedroom (2) have closets. The only thing we had to hang clothes on was a hook on the back of the door. It was highly inconvenient. Neither of those bedrooms had waste baskets in them so every time I needed to throw anything away, we had to either go to the restroom in the hall or go to the kitchen. Not super convenient when you're changing cloths or sharing thehouse with other couples. Also, there were no spare blankets in thehouse anywhere (that we could find) so if you got cold in the night, you're out of luck. You have to make sure with the thin sheet and thin bedspread that was on the beds.
I would urge you not to let these minor things distract you from booking this property. The house was VERY clean when we got there. The rooms are big and quite comfortable. There is plenty of natural light due to the windows. The patio are is quite perfect for coffee and breakfast in the morning. The kitchen has plenty of dishes that allow for your cooking needs.
While the neighborhood looks a bit sketchy getting TO the house, you find that the neighborhood is not a problem at all. The street is quiet and well-maintained at at no time did we not feel safe. Do not let the drive getting there leave you apprehensive.
If you are looking for a house CLOSE to the French Quarter without the chaos of the French Quater, this is your house. There is everything you need in the area, gas stations, quicky marts, grocery stores, Dunkin Donuts (for real coffee), etc.
Perhaps the best part is the list of "To Dos" as you take your leave is so short and quite simple to get done.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone traveling to the area.
Great house plenty of space for 7 adults and a toddler!
Came in to town with some friends for the NOLA Marathon in early March....house was perfect for our group. Nice big comfy rooms for everyone and were able to have our little one sleeping while the adults still hung out in the living room/kitchen. Used the kitchen one night to make a big pasta dinner for everyone and it was more than up to the challenge. Neighborhood is solid and friendly and pretty chill....we spent a fair amount of time in the French Quarter too which was on average was a 20 minute drive (due to traffic) and very easy to navigate. At the top of the street was a brand new market (Canseco's) that had anything you could need for food, toiletries, etc (and local brews). Also, the patio is perfect! After the race all the adults hung out together on the patio soaking up the sun and sharing beers and stories and just relaxing...it was my favorite aspect of the property. If I find myself back in the big easy I will be looking to book again...great house!
We were more then pleased!
We had a good experience in the house. It was a perfect house of imperfections that gave it the NOLA feel we were hoping for. Larry was very good at communicating and responding very quickly. We had no issues with anyone bothering us... well sort of (other worldly beings maybe?!?!). I stayed in the very back room which seemed like the master. It was very quiet and I slept pleasantly, but the bed was a little firm then I like so that's just a personal preference. My bestfriend slept in the room next to us the only one that has a queen bed and a very big bathroom. Then my brother and his wife slept in the room in the very front of the house. The middle room closest to the living room wasn't occupied because that friend ended up not coming.
The first night we were there my brother and his wife kept hearing knocking on their door. They thought we were playing a trick on them, but they waited at the door for the knock and opened it immediately and nobody was there. Then they turned on the bathroom light to see if they could see someone by the door once they closed their door, but they saw nothing but kept hearing the knocking and someone lightly walking around down the hall. Then my bestfriend said she plugged her phone in and then her phone while on the charger got tossed off the nightstand. I got up the next day to see if my brother was awake. That is when I seen the non-occupied room had one side of the covers moved and then indentation of someone laid on the pillow except the sheets weren't messed up nor looked like anyone laid in the bed. Everyone said they never went into that room. My brother and his wife continued to hear the knocking and walking every night the 3 nights we stayed there. Very odd happenings while there that we can't explain. But me personally I felt nothing and heard nothing in my back room.
Perfect distance from NOLA's French Quarters. Uber and Lyft to the French Quarters were 17 dollars. Take a Taxi on the way back because Uber and Lyft charge a surcharge while in the French Quarters so on the way back they charge 37-40 dollars, but a Taxi is only 22-25 dollars if you get stuck at the bridge might be less if you don't get stuck at the bridge. Even with the odd happenings we would stay there again we enjoyed our time and the house.
I loved the house. It was exactly what I was looking for. Quiet neighborhood, close to everything, clean, and very charming. Loved the floors and the furniture. Larry was awesome and even let us do early check in. I felt right at home. Will rent again! <3
We really enjoyed our stay at this house over the weekend. Great parking. Great access to a main road. Clean. Great!!!
I was nervous at first because it looked too good to be true from the pictures. Surprisingly it was just like the pictures! Would stay there again and I highly recommend!
The safest neighborhood in New Orleans.
