Warm Comfy Private Sunny 2 Bed

Apartment - Entire home/apt · River Ave, Providence, RI 02908, United States

The Space

This is an entire 2 Bedroom, 1 bath apartment near all colleges. 3 blocks to Providence College. 5 minutes to Rhode Island College, 15 minutes to Brown or RiSD.This is one of the nicest areas in Providence. There is one interior flight of stairs to reach the apartment. The street level is garage space. The entire apartment is yours. No cleaning fee or hidden costs!

One bedroom has a queen size bed, the other has a full size. There is plenty of closet space, and drawers. Hardwood floors, except in the dining room. Tile bathroom and kitchen. Each bedroom has a desk and chair. Linens, appliances, cookware, even some toiletries are all provided. I'm a business and pleasure traveler too, so I try to provide all the necessities for a pleasant stay.

Available daily, weekly, or monthly. Within an hour of Newport or South County beaches. 10 minutes to downtown by car or bus. Great for visitors, or business people who need a safe, private place to stay while in Providence.

Free WiFi and off street parking. Happy to help you find your way around the city. Stereo in the living room. No cable, but just added a Smart TV with loads of apps. Complementary Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant video, or use your own accounts. Connect to your computer via HDMI, USB, or DVI cable.

During the academic year there are many students in the area. The neighborhood is generally quiet,but it is an urban environment, so don't expect rural "quiet". Mild traffic sounds during the day, and occasional lawn mowing, and the neighbors have lives too. :). Providence is well known for an abundance of restaurants. Pizza to 5-star gourmet, it's all here!

Cabs are a phone call away. The cost to downtown is about $10-12. It's about 2.5 blocks to the nearest bus stop. Bus rides are $2. One hour drive or train ride to Boston. Peter Pan, Greyhound and MegaBus all stop downtown. We're about 15-20 minutes from Green Airport. If you need to rent a car, Enterprise and ZipCar are options, along with all major rental companies at the airport.

Whole Foods is about a 10-12 drive , a traditional grocery store is also about the same distance. There are 2 convenience stores within a 10 minute walk.

I can sometimes be flexible with check in/out times depending on other guests. If stays are back to back, I need time to clean before a new check-in

  • I had the opportunity to stay at this wonderful apartment and be hosted by JoAnn for an entire month. I can say that you'll hardly find someone so dedicated in making your stay as pleasant as home as JoAnn, she even let us store some of our stuff in her basement before completely moving in (that is something that not everyone does and we are really thankful).

    The apartment, located in a very nice and quite neighborhood, is the perfect spot for a short or long term stay. The beds where amazingly comfortable and the bathroom ample and clean; the kitchen was nice, we had internet access at no charge with great speed and the basement had a washer and dryer just to make our stay more convenient. My roommate and I had one car but JoAnn very kindly offered us to empty part of the garage in case we needed to park an additional one.

    Overall, our month in this apartment was amazing with the additional luck of having a wonderful host. I would certainly stay again here and will recommend it confidently to whoever is planning to go to Providence.

    Thanks for such a wonderful review! It was truly a pleasure to have you and Jorge spend your last month in Providence here. No one could hope for better guests. :)

  • JoAnn was a wonderful host, the apartment was fantastic and the beds were very comfortable! JoAnn even offered to give us a ride to downtown Providence one night as she was heading that way anyways!

    Fresh fruit, bagels and coffee were nice little accouterments left by JoAnn - again just going to show the thoughtfulness of our host.

    The apartment was clean and I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for having us!

  • JoAnn is a wonderful hostess. My daughter and I stayed for the weekend-there was coffee, english muffins, 1/2 & 1/2, oj, , and fruit left for us. The apt. was clean, comfortable and close to everything. The neighborhood is safe, as I went out for a beautiful run. The beds are incredbily comfortable! I would stay again in a heartbeat! Thanks again, JoAnn.

    Aw...thanks Annie! Loved having you stay here. So enjoyed our conversation when you arrived. :) You are always welcome to return!

  • The place was wonderful. JoAnn knew we were staying for a coffee conference, so she picked up her favorite local coffee for us to enjoy during our stay. Very comfortable, private, and peaceful!

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks Cindy! Would always love to have you stay here!

  • This apartment is ideal for anyone who wants some privacy but doesn't want to pay downtown hotel prices. Not to mention that you get a kitchen and two bedrooms -- JoAnn even leaves coffee and breakfast food, which is a nice perk. Highly recommended!

    I only wish you were staying longer. It was great to meet you! I'm enjoying the tea from Hawaii! You are welcome, anytime. :)

  • We had a great stay in Providence. JoAnn's apartment was just what we needed, and we really appreciated the snacks she left in the kitchen for us! JoAnn was very accommodating when we had two extra guests last minute, and communicated with us in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend this place!

    Thanks Sara! It was great having you stay here. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Happy to have you return, anytime!

  • Wonderful location on Smith Hill and easy to get anywhere. JoAnn was terrific to deal with and more than accommodating making sure everything was comfortable and ready for my visit. Area is residential and quiet, parking right in front of the door so there was never a problem no matter what time of the day or night I arrived. Would stay there any time I'm in the area, that's for sure!

    Thanks Tom! Must be syncronicity. We were writing about each other at the same moment! It was a pleasure having you here. You are welcome anytime! Thanks for all of your thoughtfulness.

Vibrating at the frequency of me. Whole foodie. Art lover. Founder of Shift 2 Inbound (website hidden)-founder-Social Media Club PVD. EA ~ JOANNLEFEBVR Happy to have discovered airbnb. A perfect, affordable solution for visiting out of town clients, attending conferences, or vacationing. I'm a quiet, respectful guest/host who most likely would be out and about most of the time as a guest. When I want pampering and resort activities, I'll go to a resort. Otherwise, a reasonably clean, quiet space is all that I need. My partner may occasionally be tagging along with me, depending upon his schedule. We both love good food, museums, galleries, and interesting walks. As a host, I will do all I can to be accommodating, and help to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
