Darus Rentals is a small, family-run rental company offering student housing for IU Students. We have four (4) houses of varying sizes within 10 minutes walking distance to the IU campus. One is north of campus and three are south of campus.
All of our houses are updated and well-maintained both inside and out. Dara Jwaideh and Russell Pleasants are the owners; we directly manage these properties both administratively and operationally. Unlike an asset management company, students work directly with us. We feel that our personal involvement provides a higher level of responsiveness from us as well as the students who rent from us. We care about our houses and want to keep them in great shape; we are looking for students who feel the same about them.
We have been doing this for 20+ years and have enjoyed supporting IU students as they pursue undergraduate and graduate education at Indiana University. Dara’s parents were both tenured professors at IU going back to 1960, and Bloomington is where she grew up. We strive to maintain a strong connection to both the University and the community.
