About This Listing
Since Airbnb doesn't give me a place to respond to their automatic feed back. This is an explanation for why I had to cancel so many reservation. The apartment that is listed will be lived in by a family member when her house sells. She had her house under-contact with a quick closing date. I cancelled my guest as soon as knew this, to be polite and give them plenty of time to find another place to stay. The contract on the house fell apart so my apartment is available again.
(update May 2015)
Family member moved out of apartment, so I have put the apartment back on Airbnb, that's why I don't have any resent reviews.
I require that all guest have complete profiles on Airbnb with a real picture of themselves.

This place fit our needs for a place to stay, but unfortunately we had thought it would be closer to Providence and to some things to do. Also, it is an old house, so all of our allergies flared up - I would not recommend this apartment to anyone with dust allergies unless allergy medicine is already packed!
I chose this apartment for its proximity to the East Bay Bike Path. The location couldn't have been more perfect. We spent most of Saturday night wandering around the town on foot. Such a lovely location. Loved being so close to the bike trail. The apartment is adorable and quite comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
This corner-unit apartment was comfortable and cozy--perfect for us. My husband and I stayed for three days to attend a family wedding in Newport. While we didn't explore the local area as much as we would've liked, we took brief trips to pick up groceries or visit eateries in Warren or nearby Barrington and Bristol. (My bad for not noticing the Guidebook created by the host--this would've saved us a time in choosing a place to eat the first night there.)
The place has two good-sized bedrooms. If you have young kids then the bedroom with the low bed is perfect for them and the other room with the tall antique bed is great for you.:)! Lots of light streams through the bedroom windows which are situated on corner walls, facing a small side street and "main" street. This isn't really an issue since the apartment is on the 2nd floor of a quiet street in a quiet town.
IMHO, this place isn't large enough for two couples as there's no separate living room nor are there sofas or TV/entertainment systems. We didn't miss having a TV because there is WiFi and I brought my iPad from which we could watch a movie.
The apartment is graced with wooden walls and flooring (fyi, the floor in the kitchen/open area creaks) and a clever vintage drop-down ironing board built into the wall--all part of the charm.There's a full kitchen with a supply of cooking utensils, dishware, etc., a nice size fridge and gas stove. I also liked that there are ample outlets to charge our electronics--such a convenience.
The hosts are gracious, friendly and communicative. When we had questions or needed something such as hangers, Ron was quick to respond. He and his wife also own an import store on the first floor which we enjoyed visiting. Overall, a good place to stay!
Nice place. Bed in bedroom is very Comfortable. Huge kitchen.
Stairs leading to apartment are steep. We had no problem but if elderly might prove challenging.
Ron was great to work with. Responded promptly to all requests or questions.
This is a sweet apartment that is tastefully decorated. It is clean and the beds or comfortable (even if one is on the floor). It is fully equipped to make meals in the apartment and store food, even homey enough to host friends. We stayed with our 2 year old daughter and she too felt very comfortable. The only negative thing was that the door to the second room had been taken off and we only realized as we put our baby down to sleep and looked to close it. I have suggested to Ron to put it back on for more comfort. It is on a beautiful and quite street right near the water. Ron was super nice and helpful. We would definitely stay there again if we were in RI.
The reservation was canceled 9 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
