Description

The space

This is the perfect place to stay when visiting Providence. It has a separate, private entrance to a gorgeous and just-renovated sub-level bedroom and bathroom in a beautiful, safe, historic, well-located house, 0.8 mile/15-min walk from Brown/RISD, in the heart of Wayland Square, on the East Side of Providence, RI—the best neighborhood in the city. 13 restaurants, three coffee houses, shops, drug store, bike path, public transportation, Zip car rental . . . just 2 blocks away!

The room is 425 sq. ft. and features 4 windows that give lots of natural light. Key-less digital locks allow you to come and go as you please. Included is parking for one, FIOS wireless internet, cotton linens and towels, fresh toiletries and soaps, hair dryer, microwave, refrigerator, electric kettle and Keurig coffee maker. Room is also furnished with a dresser, couch, and coffee table, and everything is always exceptionally clean. Air-conditioning and heat are terrific and controlled by guest.

Don't settle for dirty Airbnb's when you can have better than hotel-quality right here. Owners live on the premises and are available when needed. We look forward to your visit!

Please note: there is one cat in the house, although your room is private and closed off from the main house and the cat does not have access to your room.

Guest access

The apartment is pretty self sufficient, although I am happy to provide whatever else you may need. While there is no kitchen, there is a microwave, refrigerator, electric water boiler, and Keurig coffee maker

Interaction with guests

I try to keep interaction to a minimum, for your benefit, of course, so that you feel comfortable and private, and so that you have time to explore the city. I am happy, however, to provide any information on the city and its resources that I can offer, and I love interacting with guests if they would like to

The neighborhood

Wayland Square is the best, most beautiful, and safest neighborhood in Providence, on the East Side, within one mile of Brown University and RISD, and one block to the famous Blackstone Boulevard and Seekonk River.

Adam's place is comfortable, extremely clean, and conveniently located to both College Hill and the restaurants at Wayland Square. The basement apartment has a separate entrance with a combination lock, so you can come and go without disturbing anyone. The apartment is near a lovely walking trail down the center of Blackstone Blvd. The bed is very comfortable, and the bathroom is spacious and fully stocked with shampoos, conditioners, and body wash. The apartment includes a mini fridge with waters and juices and soda, and other snacks and teas and coffees are also provided in the room. I would definitely go back!

Adam's home was impeccably clean. He got back to me in a very timely fashion and was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants, coffee houses and sight seeing ideas. There were so many extras that made our trip easier to pack for...clean, fresh towels, toiletries, coffee & tea K-Cups, oatmeal packets, healthy & indulgent snacks, and the fridge was stocked with water, juice and soda. We really enjoyed the modern design of the bathroom and the memory foam mattress is heavenly! Very true to the photos as well. Would highly recommend Adam's place!!

Originally from New Jersey, but Providence has been my wonderful home for 10 years. I moved here to take a position as a professor at a local university, and I never plan to leave! Since my wife, Phoebe, and I know Providence and Rhode Island very well, we would be happy to introduce you to the many wonderful things this city and state have to offer, including exceptional restaurants, exciting entertainment, beautiful beaches, state parks, and historic tourist attractions.
