About This Listing
Leave your car in the off-street gated parking and walk downtown in minutes. The room and bath are on a floor of their own...so privacy prevails. Comfy bed has fabulous linens. Enjoy mini fridge, wifi, bose sound dock, and may other amenities.
You have a private entrance up to your third floor accommodations.
The way up is a bit unfinished, but we promise it won't infringe on your enjoyment of a sweet little set-up.
The space is well-suited for a pleasant stay. You'll have a real comfy double bed with down comforter, and twin bed (sleep up to 3) There are black-out curtains for those of you who need pitch black for sleeping.
We are set in an urban oasis on the edge of downtown.
Our house sits on 3 city lots that have more than 40 trees including apple and walnut trees.
It is only a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to the middle downtown and some of the best restaurants Providence has to offer.
The house has off-street gated parking so no need to worry about an overnight parking permit or ticket.
During your stay you are welcome to enjoy our backyard and courtyard. It is a wonderful place to have your morning coffee or afternoon tea.
A friendly dog and a new puppy live on the premises but neither have any access to your private area.

About the area:
It is a true urban oasis situated in a 80%residential 20%commercial zone. The streets in the area are mainly one-way which cuts way down on traffic flow.
The area in general is mixed culturally, racially, and socio-economically. We have many artists, in fact the Thompson Twins used to live across the street. We also have many doctors, professionals, professors, and like most cities we have a homeless population that is served by a local soup kitchen and shelter on the edge of downtown. For many urban dwellers this will be a recognizable mix of people, but for those coming from less diverse areas you may prefer to drive around rather than walk. I have lived in this neighborhood for 15 years and know that, while it can be colorful at times, it is also safe.

This place is fantastic! Cozy and welcoming - had everything I needed and more. The bed is very comfortable. Garden is lovely. I would definitely stay here again.
The host r so nice when we arrived. Lovely tiny space made my parent and I enjoy the whole night.
Karen's space was as beautiful as it was described in the listing. The apartment was quiet and private. It was also very practical - everything to make a small visit complete - coffee, tea, and minifridge with cream, good speakers, incredibly comfortable bed, cozy chair, good lighting, interesting book collection. I did not actually get a chance to meet her, but she responded to emails very quickly. There is a great bathroom with a clawfoot tub. And the apartment was so clean! I hope to get a chance to go back there again!
Karen has an amazing attic with everything. I like the Bose very much! My parents love their pillows and want to get themselves some! They like the experience of staying at Karen's home and they like providence a lot!
Karen was a great host and graciously accommodated a late check-in. The loft is spacious, very clean, with lots of design details and creature comforts. Best parts: puffy bed, convenient coffee, big desk for working, claw-footed tub, lovely garden area. Wanted to cry of happiness while lazing about on a big hammock between two dogwoods drifting soft petals onto my sleepy eyes. Upbeat part of Providence, Olga's 5-minute drive away for breakfast. Heavenly!
We had another lovely stay at Karen's - her garden is beautiful in the spring with flowering trees and a hammock.
Lovely private room and a gorgeous garden/backyard set-up! The space was exactly as described, although I would add: the sloped attic ceilings can be inconvenient for taller guests. I'm 5'6" and the living situation was fine, but for my fellow guest who is 6'0", there were a few bumps to the head. Same goes for the cute little bathtub - it's quite small, but I was able to squeeze in cross-legged for a quick wash. We didn't spend much time inside, as we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and sit outside in Karen's flower garden. Would recommend for a weekend getaway!
