About This Listing
Fully furnished, 2 bedroom, 1200 sq foot apartment with all amenities needed for travel or temporary housing. Located just north of Providence and 45 minutes south of Boston.
Renovated, 2 bedroom, second floor apartment. Previous full time rental, converted into a private guest / yoga studio space. I live and work on the first floor and teach workshops upstairs when not renting the space out to guests. The apartment uses the back entrance and is separate from the first floor. Both entrance and parking to the apartment space is actually on Suffolk Ave. which is located at the back of the house.
Primary guest room accommodates two with a real bed and a new luxury mattress. (Closet and dresser space is available) Large shower/bath. ( I provide towels ) Private use of galley kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need; pantry basics, dishes - pots and pans, microwave, blender etc. Coffee / tea, breakfast foods and snacks available. Wireless internet, basic TV (Major networks and local channels) and DVD player.
The space is a two bedroom apartment. When the extra bedroom is needed I set up a high rise luxury queen size air mattress topped with memory foam for extra comfort. (Many guests have said this is as comfortable as a real bed)
I can also set up additional air mattresses in the large living room space for family's and big groups. Please note that the living room area is used as a yoga studio when not renting so the furniture has to be minimal and moveable. There is plenty of seating available including a yogabo couch, which is very comfortable but sits on the floor, a folding recliner, back-jacks, meditation cushions, folding chairs and stools.
I do request at least a two day booking when setting up extra beds as set up, break down, clean up and overhead increases greatly. I have found this to be too much extra work for just a one day stay. The fee for extra people covers my time and extra overhead. When booking, please let me know if you are couples staying two in a bed or if you need a bed set up for each individual. I may be able to offer you a discounted rate for couples staying more then 2 nights as the set up is easier.
Kids are welcome as long as they are quiet (I work down stairs with clients who come to relax!) The extra $30 per person fee does apply to children as well as adults. I have let children stay for free in the past and have found that childproofing and clean up after kids have visited takes a lot more effort and time. I am always willing to discuss certain situations and negotiate fees appropriately.
Amenities for extra bedding include: 2 high profile (high quality with baffles) queen size air mattresses that I pad with a futon or memory foam for extra comfort. I also have a queen and single low profile air mattresses suitable for kids.
Read or relax in the fenced in private patio with gardens in summer. Fully equipped yoga space if you wish to practice. There is also a TV and a movable bean bag couch in the living room/yoga space.
I have pets but they are not allowed in the second floor space so it is allergen free. Sorry, no guest pets allowed. Absolutely no smoking as well.
I have not added an extra cleaning fee as to keep the space more affordable so please try to be mindful and leave everything as you found it. Monthly/long term fee is negotiable depending on the circumstance. Please contact me and we can discuss a special offer. Extra $5 fee as indicated on the calendar, is added on in winter and summer to cover heat and air.
I may also be available to share yoga practice or book a shiatsu, massage or bodywork / coaching session in my first floor office.
The space is available for teaching workshops as well as housing workshop guests.
I am located 1 mile off of route 95, 10 minutes north of Providence, RI. It is a 45 minute drive east to Newport, RI and less then an hour drive, or train ride, north to Boston, Ma.
It is 1 mile down the street to the South Attleboro train station and I am also on the local bus line. (Check RIPTA for schedule)
The town park (Slater Park) is less then 1 mile away with walking and bike trail, paddle boats and carousel for kids. Also close to pubs, restaurants and grocery. RI visitor center is located in down town Pawtucket, 3 miles away. Check out the guidebook for other local attractions.
The access to the second floor is in the back of the house located on Suffolk Ave. The apartment is totally private during your stay.
Interaction with Guests
I interact as wanted and needed. Every situation is different and I want each guest to get the most out of their stay. Most days I am downstairs in my living space or working with clients in my home based office.
I am walking distance to restaurants, markets, pubs, drugstores and park. Located 5 miles north of Providence.
I am one mile away from the South Attleboro train station with easy access to the commuter train to Boston. Also on the local bus line. Please check RIPTA for bus schedules.
No smoking on the property. Please let me know if you are going to have extra guests visiting during your stay. Try to keep food and drinks in the kitchen/dining area to avoid spills and stains on the rug in living room/yoga area. If the heat is on or the air conditioning is running, please keep the windows closed for energy efficiency and to save on resources. I request that the heat be kept at 70 degrees or lower. The space is newly insulated with new windows and stays nice and warm.
Make yourself comfortable and at home but please treat the space with respect. Please remove shoes and place on shoe tray before entering to keep the yoga space floor clean.
My pets are not allowed on the second floor so it is free of allergens. - Thanks
Nancy was great and very welcoming! She was kind to greet us when we arrived and had many suggestions for places to go to eat/things to do in the area. The space itself was wonderful as well - clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. Would definitely recommend!
Nancy's place is very comfortable and conveniently located for attending NEFFA. Nancy is very accommodating and had no problem with having an extra person added to the reservation. The place is fully furnished and the beds are comfortable. I would stay here again.
Nancy was very welcoming and gracious. She kept in great communication with us prior to our visit.
Nancy is warm and welcoming and her listing is clean and comfortable and great for a personal retreat with a fully outfitted yoga space. The multitude of prior reviews provide an accurate description. I appreciated all the ways in which Nancy made it feel like home. This was my first Airbnb experience and it was excellent.
Nancy is a most gracious host. I stayed at her apartment for two nights ---- the only thing amiss was that the weather didn't cooperate! (I was hoping for a respite from March ice and snow at home, and got more ice and snow.)
The apartment is welcoming, with wonderful banners with inspirational sayings everywhere. The bedding in the bedroom I stayed in was also beautiful, as are the curtains throughout. (Perhaps you can tell I was an art major in college.)
The apartment is also adorned with unique and interesting pieces, small and large, throughout, starting with a Calder-like mobile as you walk up the stairs. Everywhere your eye turns is something that brings a pause for appreciation - where did that come from? what is its story?
For those wanting to be able to prepare their own food, having a full kitchen stocked with plates and tableware and glasses and cooking utensils (along with basics, like salt and pepper, coffee and lots of kinds of teas) is also really splendid.
It's also quite close to interstate highways, about a mile or so away, and so an easy jumping-off location. I didn't get to Slater Park nearby --- too cold and snowy. But it sounds wonderful, complete with a farm and working carousel in the summer, and very close - 1.5 miles (and so walkable) or 5 minutes by car just down the street.
As others have already noted, Nancy has a great place to stay
