  • We enjoyed our stay with Chris and Geoff. We felt very welcome in their house. Their home has a lot of character and was very comfortable for our weekend stay. The kitchen was easily accessible with breakfast staples. We were delighted to find warm crumb cake on the counter Saturday morning. Geoff and Chris gave great recommendations for what to do and where to go in the area. It was very easy to come and go from their home. We'd be happy to stay with them again.

  • Geoff and Chris--and Rocco the Dalmation--are the sweetest. I felt at home the minute I walked in the door to homemade turkey hash. These guys just really seem to enjoy sharing their home and making people feel at ease. I had a wonderful, comfortable stay.

  • I had a very present stay while in RI. They were very understanding of off schedule work hours. A most wonderful experience.

    November 2013
  • Gigi, Chris and their dalmation Rocco were so great. I felt very much at home. They took great care of me, stocking the fridge with my favorite breakfast items and even offering to pick me up at the train station when I arrived late on Friday night. The house was clean and super cozy. I would stay there again for sure.

  • Geoff and Chris are the perfect hosts. I felt at home and loved the first second I got there. They were uber-super-helpful and took their time to explain everything to me. Plus Geoff bakes the best Banana Bread in the whole wide world!

  • Great hosts. Very comfortable bed. Eager to let you know where to go, where to eat, etc. Generous in the extreme. Great cooks!

  • My wife Cathy and I stayed a week at Geoff and Chris's home during our 3 month trip in the U.S., and this has been for us a wonderful experience. Providence is a great destination to visit in Rhode Island and for visiting all of New England. It’s also very convenient to visit Boston and the coast is very beautiful.
    The house is clean, very welcoming, just walked in we felt at ease.
    The photos correspond perfectly to reality.
    But the main memory that we retain of this stay is without a doubt the meeting with Geoff and Chris. As hosts, they were exceptional and we hope to find more of this level. They gave us all the help we need to optimize our stay, with kindness, spontaneity and naturalness. A real pleasure to have met them, and again thanks for all the advice and good times spent in their company.
    We would advise everyone to stay here who wants to visit this destination for this region.

  • Geoff and Chris made for great hosts during my two night stay in Providence. Their home is clean, comfortable, and quiet. The bus to downtown Providence is easily reached from their home, and it was always nice to recount the day with Geoff and Chris after exploring Providence. All in all, a good stay. Grazie mille!

  • My husband and I stayed with Gigi while we were looking for places to live in Rhode Island. We felt extremely lucky to have found them and enjoyed our stay. They were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home! The dog was also adorable :) I would recommend them to anyone looking for a place to stay in Rhode Island.

  • These guys are the Best!!. Words cant express the warm atmosphere they provided... They made the stressful & exciting time of dropping my son off to Brown University Very Pleasant. And Rocco is an amazing pet - very people friendly... I will try to stay with them whenever I have to travel there over the next few years. Thanks for Everything!!!!

About
We are a gay couple with three girls. (Ages 13,16, and 20) who visit with us every other weekend. We tend to be over-cautious and try to keep only the days available that the girls are NOT staying with us. The available dates are much more flexible in the summer vacation months as we can always swap the days to meet our (and your) schedule. For that reason, It is always better for us to reserve with us as many days in advance as possible. We have a great Dalmatian named Rocco direct from Italy. He is a handful, but a lovable handful. We like to travel and meet new people. I lived in Italy for five years and we return as often as possible. I would look forward to challenging my rusty Language skills. I (Geoff) am currently working as a consultant for a few local architecture firms and my partner (Chris) works as a Program Manager for developmentally delayed adults. We enjoy Providence and our neighborhood of Elmwood. We like to show it off to family and friends.
