An ideal apartment for those visiting Brown, RISD or downtown Providence. We're located one block from both schools on historic Benefit St. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, spacious living and dining rooms and a cozy bedroom with beautiful furnishings.
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 full kitchen, washer/dryer, wireless internet, and television.
We'll provide sheets, fresh towels, soap, shampoo and a hairdryer. Two single foam mattresses are available for additional guests.
Interaction with Guests
We are usually away from Providence when guests come to stay. We leave keys in a lockbox at the front door, and can always be reached by cell or email if guests need anything. We'll give you the lockbox code after booking.
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.
Most guests head off on foot - downtown, RISD and Brown campuses are 2-10 minutes away.
We're also very close to public transit - 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.
* If you do plan to drive, please ask us for parking help. We have an overnight street parking pass for all guests; guests can use street parking during the day.

Note again: We have one queen bed, but can accommodate an additional guests on twin foam mattresses
My many contacts with Izzy immediately made me feel comfortable, confident and excited about her apartment. Once I arrived we felt at home. This is a place that I hated to leave. If I had the most basic question she quickly returned my email. The apartment is on one of the most beautiful streets in Providence and her apartment was just as beautiful. As I said we were sad to leave. She has everything you need. We spread out, and loved every corner. From the best leather sofa to the best bed. Her kitchen made me envious. If I would have know about her place earlier I would have had more visits with my daughter who is graduating from Brown this Spring. We loved our walks in the neighborhood and almost every home has historical significance. It is a place that you go back to. Thank you Izzy!
izzy was a real pleasure right from the start. clear instructions, very responsive and friendly. the apartment itself was even more beautiful in person, and the location was ideal for our purposes -- we could walk and bike everywhere we wanted to go.
Beautiful apartment! Comfortable, stylish and spacious with great location. The perfect place to stay for a weekend in Providence.
I spent two nights at Izzy's place and it was perfect! The place was beautiful, clean, and although the hosts were not in town, I had no difficulty going in and out thanks to the excellent instructions she gave me on how to get in, where everything was, and what the parking situation was. The guest parking was perfect to find a parking spot until noon each day, and then parking around Brown was totally fine. Great place at a location in Providence that is hard to beat!
My boyfriend and I spent three days/night at Izzy's place and it was wonderful! It was our first experience with AirBnB. The place was clean, beautiful, and she gave excellent instructions on how to get in, where everything was, and what the parking situation was (doable!). And the location was perfect and very central.
Fantastic apartment, excellent location, timely communication. Couldn't have gone better!
This was a fantastic home away from home. I found myself wanting to be friends with Izzy & Jeff. Their home was impeccably appointed and everything about my stay in Providence effortless. If given the opportunity I will return again and again. I didn't get a chance to use the kitchen. But it was great. The location is better than the photos. Ideal for walking both on College Hill, Brown, RISD and environs, but also great if you have business downtown. Easy walks to almost anywhere you want to be. Zipcar, Lyft and Uber make it very easy to stay without having a car. Easy walks to the restaurants on Wickeden. Although a further trek, I fell in love with Red Stripe in Wayland Square. You'll find Brown and RISD students think that Wayland Square is too far away, but it's less than a mile. Perfect on a mild day. I must confess a fried whole belly clam addiction and Hemenways is just down the hill. Yum!
Shower pressure excellent. Lots of light. Izzy was always available and so very enthusiastic and friendly it made any sense of awkwardness immediately dissipate. This was my first Airbnb experience.
Spacious. Easy. Gracious. Friendly. Warm. Lovely. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Can't wait to return!
