Interaction with Guests
While I am constantly traveling my brother lives on the third floor. You may run into him or you may not however he is always available for questions or problems.
While the neighborhood is centrally located to easy transportation there are some walkable restaurants, parks, and stores. Being across the river from Providence it has a little bit slower pace and safer feel.
Located in East Providence between 2 bridges it is half a block to the bus line. Walk to Brown, RISD, J&W, the East Side and downtown areas of Providence. Pubic transportation is available half a block away via RIPTA. We are also located close to the East Bay bike path for a great ride through picturesque communities along the bay. Day trips to Newport, Little Compton, Watch Hill, Mystic, Boston, and P-Town are easily doable.

No smoking. No pets (This does not mean that there have never been pets in the house. It was built in the late 1800's so there have been. There haven't been pets in the apartment for 4 years. There is however a cat in the first floor apartment below this one. ).
My mom and I stayed here over a long weekend while we were checking out Providence and the RISD campus. This place was perfect for us! We took the train to Providence and planned on walking while we were here. We took a cab to the apartment our first day. Upon first arrival to the apartment we were worried that we were too far away. But, Pat was nice enough to drive us to get groceries and point out a nice walking route into the city. After that we had no trouble and loved our stay! It's a good 45 minute walk to the campus from Mike & Pat's place. Something to consider if the weather is dreary. We had sunny days and loved learning about the city on foot!
Thanks for sharing your lovely spot with us! :)
Great place and very clean. Kitchen has all the equipment needed to cook a great meal. Checked in with my wife an I via text a couple of times to make sure our stay was going well. Deli just across the street is a great little local place. Got a straight razor shave and a haircut just across the street as well at the Barber. We only used one bedroom but has two very nice bedrooms. Thank you for sharing your place it it wonderful. Will no doubt book again on out next trip.
This was our first airbnb experience and we were very pleased with the process and accommodations. Michael's home was in a great location for us; convenient to amenities and sight- seeing. It was also very cozy, clean and modern. Michael made our experience effortless and he had very clear instructions for our arrival and stay. When we return to RI, we will be sure to use him as a host in the future!
Cute apartment with everything you need, in a great location. Very clean and Mike was a very helpful and accommodating host. The apartment is located in a safe, quiet neighborhood, but it's a quick drive to downtown Providence and other great spots. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay again!
Michael Collins' apartment was as nice as picture on the site. We were not worried about using any of the well equipped rooms since everything was freshly cleaned. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen as we're on a budget and shopped and cooked for ourselves. The location felt safe and was closer to our destination than Providence. Mike was always available and clear directions were left regarding heat/AC controls and all amenities.
We arrived to a clean, nice apartment. It was well stocked with everything that we needed for a two night stay. The neighborhood and outside of parents were certainly suitable, but nothing special. We enjoyed our stay.
Great little place... Everything you need... Owners where great...I would definitely stay there again
