Our private, new, clean, and secure room w/ attached bathroom is in the best neighborhood in Providence, 0.8 mile/15-min walk from Brown/RISD and 2 blocks from Wayland Square restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, bus stop, Zip car, drug store.
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, less than 1 mile from Brown University and RISD, in the heart of Wayland Square, on the East Side of Providence, RI—the best neighborhood in the city. Nine 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. Don't settle for dirty Airbnb's when you can have hotel-quality digs right here. Owner lives on the premises and is available when needed. I look forward to your visit!
please note: there is one cat on the premises, although your room is private and closed off from the main house and the cat does not have access to the room.
The apartment is pretty self sufficient, although I am happy to provide whatever else you may need.
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.
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. Within two blocks you will find eight good restaurants, four lively coffee shops, designer clothing and jewelry stores, late-night drug store, convenient Zip car rental, frequently-running buses, and historic architecture all around.
