About This Listing
A sunny room, 10 minutes walking to Brown and 15 minutes to most of RISD.
Just a block off Thayer, next to a park, and a short walk to Brown or RISD. You'll have my sunny spare bedroom to yourself. Feel free to use the kitchen.
My place is a five minute walk to the heart of Thayer St, where you'll find a ton of places to eat, the Brown bookstore, bars and shops. Most Brown and RISD campus locations are less than a 15 minute walk away.
When you arrive, you can walk from the Kennedy Plaza (20min) if you come by bus, or from the train station (15min). There is a hill coming from that direction though, so consider a cab for about $6-$8.
Interaction with Guests
I may or may not be home during your stay. Especially during the summer, I may away. If I am home, Dijsktra, our small dog will also be here.
This room isn't this color any more either. Now it's light blue. (And now there's a bed instead.)
The space was great! We spent the time going from the convention center to the apartment and it was super awesome. The spiral staircase may prove challenging if you have vertigo but it was spacious and in a good area. We never met john but he left good info on picking up the key. Loved it!
Loved the big apartment/house. The location was great and was truly very accessible to Brown University/downtown. Walked everywhere. John was always readily available when I had last minute questions and made the stay very easy. For my short stay - this worked out very well.
John has a nice space in a good part of town. Although the room was decently clean the futon was not very comfortable (unless you like stiff beds). The bathroom was not clean and I felt a bit uncomfortable using it. I didn't have the chance to meet John which may have improved the experience, but overall I felt like he made a rushed attempt to create a good place to stay - and it was apparent.
John was a wonderful host! The room was clean and warm and even had a nice desk where I was able to work in the mornings. Highly recommended!
