I stayed in this apartment over the Christmas weekend and it was fabulous! The place was SPOTLESS and very comfortable. It was everything that is promised, in walking distance to shops, food stores, restaurants and a hop, skip and a jump to other locales. Mags was extremely helpful with her suggestions of where to eat and what to do. I would HIGHLY recommend Mags apartment to anyone who wishes to explore the area.
We traveled to providence for my in-laws 80th birthdays with our teenager and stayed for 5 days. Each morning we walked to get coffee at Wayland square. I love love love the restaurants and all the things to do in Providence.
The apartment was immaculately clean, in a great location and the beds were so comfortable. Mags was in touch with us and we got all of the information that we needed in a timely manner.
We travel a lot and it was so nice to be in such a nice homey environment. I can't stress enough how comfortable the house was!
mags and adam were excellent hosts! mags attention to detail, making sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable was like no other... the apartment was spotless and cute and cosy. it's in a nice location too, i would recommend to others for sure. the luxurious king size bed was amazing, though for my preferences, too soft. great place and great hosts...
My husband and I traveled to Providence for the Thanksgiving holiday, and were looking for a quiet place to relax after a long day with family + friends. Mags place was the perfect spot for this. The apartment is tucked away on a quiet street, but just a few blocks away (walking distance) from the some of the best cafes, shops and restaurants in the area. The apartment is clean and comfortable. My favorite part was the incredibly comfortable king size bed – not too firm, but not too soft. Mags was also easy to communicate with, and super accommodating when it came to check in + checkout time. We had a lovely time here, and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Nice place to stay in for vacations
Mags was a great host! Her and her husband even went out of their way to pick us up from Warwick to show us the neighborhood and around the home. The house was in a perfect walking location to plenty of bars, restaurants and shops in the Wayland area. We rented bikes from Legend Bicycle and road everywhere on Saturday. It was a must do in Providence.
Great overall stay and we would love revisit.
Lovely apartment in a pleasant residential neighborhood. It's about a 25-minute walk to RISD, and very close to a spiffy little area with cafés and restaurants and bookstores and stuff.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable, and Mags was a very generous and accommodating host!
Mags was a wonderful host who was very responsive and helpful during the entire process of the stay. The place was in a beautiful and safe location, near a running path and various grocery stores, salons, coffee shops, gyms and restaurants. It was also a short walk to a bus stop and about a 15 minute walk to Thayer Street, which had many shops and restaurants as well. The space itself was very clean and relaxing. Traveling alone, I felt very safe in this neighborhood and I would definitely stay here again!
We had a great stay! The apartment is comfortable, clean, and close to groceries, coffee shops, and a good running trail. Easy to get to Brown and RISD. Mags was a great host--helpful, easy to communicate with, and flexible with arrangements. Nice spot!
