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

JoAnn was wonderful even with our arrival being delayed. The apartment was clean and warm. We loved our stay and would definitely stay there again.
My experience with Joanne and the listing was excellent. Joanne communicated well and met me upon arrival and talked with me, making me feel comfortable and knowledgable about the flat. Everything was clean, all the amenities you could need, and a pretty central location. Would recommend this place, great value.
Joanne was a great host. Her place was very spacious and clean. All the amenities one could ask for, a stocked kitchen and bathroom, two nice bedrooms, a comfortable living and dining room. She was very helpful upon arrival and met with me for a few minutes to explain everything and make me feel welcome. After that I never saw her again and had complete privacy. Excellent host. Excellent stay in an area that is not far from downtown. Would stay again.
JoAnn was an extremely gracious host. She was very accommodating to our entire party including one guest who had to arrive a bit earlier than the rest of us. She was easy to reach and communicate with and always prompt when replying. The neighborhood is in a great location, pretty convenient to all parts of Providence. The apartment was exactly as described - clean, bright, inviting, and big! There was a lot of space yet felt cozy. It was also very clean and minimal of clutter. The fruit left for us as well as the coffee and condiments was truly so appreciated. A major plus was the parking spot which was available to us especially in the snow.
JoAnn's place was very much as described and depicted. The apartment is easily accessible from the city as well as the bordering suburbs. The apartment itself was very clean, spacious, and well supplied with clean towels and linens. Her immediate and informative communication was much appreciated and made for an all around better stay. I will definitely be checking out this listing in the future.
The apartment is really well furnished and one has nothing to worry about when it comes to feel at home.
JoAnn is a wonderful host and everything went well.
JoAnn was a wonderful host, and her location is extremely well-located, in a friendly neighborhood near to downtown Providence. Two thumbs up!

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.
