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.

The Space

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.

Amenities:
•large desk
•closet with raingear/umbrella
•coffee maker and makings
•small refrigerator
•wireless internet
•air conditioning
• Bose sound-dock
• Private bath – real claw foot tub with handshower

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 13 years and know that, while it can be colorful at times, it is also safe.
A friendly dog lives on the premises but has no access to your area.

  • My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at Karen's apartment! It was clean cozy and beautifully furnished. Karen was a great host!

  • I enjoyed the room and bathroom. It is on the 3rd floor of the house. It was a little difficult getting in to the house, but Karen was accessible by phone and helped me out. The neighborhood is a little noisy, but the room is peaceful and pleasant. Overall I enjoyed having this room and bath for my one night in Providence.

  • Karen was very responsive to my questions beforehand and she gives guests the luxury of having the top floor to themselves. Thank you again!

  • We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful, private room. Our first stay with Airbnb and we were completely spoiled--Karen makes this feel like luxury lodging. The bed is phenomenal, the linens are very nice, she provides anything you could think of needing and more. (Sidenote: very nice that she even had a hair dryer there!) My boyfriend is 6'3" and while the ceilings are somewhat low, he had no discomfort or head bumps at all. We both just want to go back to this amazing escape!!

  • I loved staying in this beautiful, very private room. This might be the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! I appreciated the coffee service with cream in the fridge and Karen graciously provided a ride for me when the street unexpectedly had repairs and I was unable to get my car out of the driveway! I only wish I'd been able to stay longer to enjoy the beautiful yard and campfire arrangement! Highly recommended!

  • It was a lovely room - lots of character and an incredibly comfortable bed!! Karen was absolutely great and even gave us an iron when we needed it! Very well appointed room and bathroom, easy entry and exit - a great base for our time while in Providence. Thanks very much, Karen for a great stay!!

  • I have used airbnb many times and Karen's place was one of the best stays. She deserves all the great reviews. My family and I stayed at Karen's for 2 nights for commencement at Brown, everything was provided as others have mentioned. The room and private bathroom was very clean. Very safe location.

  • My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful night at Karen's. We were in town for a graduation and this was the perfect place to for us to get to and from our local destinations. There was off-street parking and a friendly dog named Zoey. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you Karen...

  • Très bonne expérience chez Karen. Elle est très professionnelle et tout s'est déroulé avec fluidité. Le petit appartement a l'étage de la maison est vraiment très mignon et parfaitement propre. Situé assez près du centre, nous avons pu nous y rendre à pied. A louer sans hésiter!

  • Karen was an awesome host. She gave me clear instructions and was accommodating of my arrival.

    As for the space itself, it is large for one person and has unique and splendid touches. The bathroom is nice with a clawfoot tub. I felt pretty fancy while staying here.
