Explore downtown, visit Brown or RISD, and come home to a spacious, lovely apartment on historic Benefit St.

The Space

An ideal apartment for those visiting Brown, RISD or downtown Providence. We're located 1 block from both schools on historic Benefit street. The apartment is on the second floor of a home originally built in 1846. The 1-BR apartment has 12 foot ceilings, original wood floors and newly remodeled kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Sunlight streams in through large windows in the living room and kitchen.

Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, washer/dryer, wireless internet, and television, and will be provided with sheets, fresh towels soap and shampoo. A queen sized air mattress is also available for additional guests.

The neighborhood is an ideal launching spot for walking to Brown, RISD or downtown Providence. We're just one block downhill from the Van Wickle Gates and very close to the route of the graduation procession. Some of the best restaurants, cafes and attractions are also an easy walk from the apartment. Please see the guidebook for details.

We're a 10 minute walk from the Providence train station and the bus station at Kennedy Plaza and a 20 minute drive from TF Green airport.

Please write with any questions or requests. Thank you for considering staying at our apartment.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Izzy's place is beautiful, combining elegant charm with convenient modern amenities. The apartment is right on historic Benefit street and within easy distance of both downtown and college hill. Izzy herself was easy to communicate with and I would highly recommend this place. We had a great time!

  • Izzy was very gracious and generous, and helped me out of a tough spot at the last minute. Her home is gorgeous, she kept me up-to-date on any changes, and made herself available in case there were any problems. I know some people use AirBnB to have a space and not a host, but Izzy is a good person to know, regardless of your position.

  • This was a happy return visit to Izzy's beautiful apartment. I can't imagine a more lovely place or smoother AirBnB experience. We will be back for sure.

  • This place was such a wonderfully located urban bungalow. I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting Providence to go to RISD or Brown University to stay here- you really can't ask for anything better in terms of cleanliness, quirkiness, coziness ... And the fact it's literally five minutes walking from everything!

  • This was my first airbnb experience and it was wonderful. I was taking a special studio workshop at RISD and can't imagine a better location for a peaceful (and convenient) retreat. Izzy's apartment is just as beautiful and peaceful as the pictures convey - thoughtfully and artfully appointed - and her hospitality is spot on. Izzy is a gracious host. A truly delightful stay!

  • Izzy's apartment is a wonderful place to stay. It is spacious, airy, light and beautifully furnished. The location is great too, right in the historic district of Providence and easy walking distance to railway station, shops, restaurants etc. We cooked a lot and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Izzy was very helpful and accommodating too. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

  • We had a lot going on in Providence for the weekend, and it was so great to have a "home base" at Izzy's beautiful apartment. The location is fabulous, the furnishings and bedding super nice, and Izzy very easy and friendly to deal with. We hope to stay again at Izzy's place!

  • We had a great time in Providence, and a large part of it was Izzy's fantastic apartment. The pictures don't do this place justice, it's even more magnificent in person, and it was in a great location, about a 10 minute walk to the commuter rail stop, and a 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants on Thayer street, which was rather convenient. Izzy was very communicative and the key arrangement was one of the smoothest I've ever experienced with an airbnb host. Overall, I'd wholeheartedly recommend Izzy and her apartment for anyone visiting Providence.

  • Izzy's apartment was even lovelier (if possible) than it appears in the photos. Elegant, tasteful, spacious, and comfortable, in a historic and beautifully restored building. The location is beyond ideal for visiting Brown or RISD -- either one is not even a block away (the Providence Athenaeum next door was an additional and unexpected plus!). Izzy even provided parking! The bed is very comfortable, the shower is excellent, and though we did not cook at all, we really enjoyed eating takeout in the large and beautiful kitchen/dining area. The living room was so relaxing that one of us fell asleep on the fantastic couch.

    Izzy was very accommodating and helpful. We hope to come back -- the sooner the better. This was truly the perfect AirBnB experience.

    October 2013
  • Izzy's apartment was beautiful, spacious, comfortable, and centrally located -- perfect for a little trip to Providence. We can't wait to come back sometime, and would definitely recommend anyone else to stay there as well.
