Interaction with Guests
I'm currently doing some renovations on the first floor and hope to move in before the snow flies. Hopefully I'll run into you during your stay. 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.

Michael was a gracious and fun host whose home was a pleasure to come back to at the end of a long day exploring Providence, RI.
Michael is a great host. Apartment was nice and clean and had everything we needed. It's easy to find and a great spot to start trips. Just over the the bridge is everything you need. Restaurants,Breakfast Places and whole Food Market. Perfect! Thanks again Michael
Die Unterkunft hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Michael war ein super Gastgeber , der uns mit Tipps gefüttert hat. Vielen Dank für die schönen 3 Tage :)!!!
Das Apartment ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, super ausgestattet, groß und geräumig und sehr sauber. Die Umgebung ist ruhig und die Innenstadt von Providence ist gut erreichbar. Mit dem Auto kann man die Umgebung wie Cape Cod, Newport und Martha´s Vineyard gut erreichen. Auch ein Ausflug nach Boston ist einfach.
Michael ist ein sehr angenehmer Gastgeber, der Kontakt war unkompliziert, freundlich und schnell, alle wichtigen Fragen stehen auf einem Infoblatt in der Wohnung zur Verfügung. Außerdem steht sein Bruder, der in der Wohnung eine Etage höher wohnt, für Fragen zur Verfügung.
Wir würden jederzeit wieder das Apartment buchen, haben uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt und erinnern uns gerne an den Aufenthalt zurück.
We had such an amazing time in providence. The house was perfect. Extremely clean, modern and comfortable. I will absolutely stay here again if I'm ever in providence.
After a poor experience the prior three nights in a different Air BnB listing, Mike's apartment was an AWESOME and welcome retreat! What an amazing apartment. Well furnished and very very nice and cozy. Very comfortable, with two great bedrooms. I couldn't decide which one to sleep in because they both looked so comfortable! It's quite clear that Mike has a nice, consistent, friendly, Air BnB thing going on in his apartment. Almost everyone who rented prior seems to have left a little something for the next guest. Mike's brother Pat, who lives upstairs, was welcoming (via text) but allowed me my privacy. A nice note welcomed me and gave me the nickel tour and everything I needed to know. The coded entry is excellent and helps simplify the checkin process, which was great since I ended up arriving earlier than I had originally expected. I used the kitchen heavily and really appreciated all the cooking utensils and pots and pans. Overall, this is a fantastic apartment at a great price and I will DEFINITELY book this apartment next time I'm in New England! Fantastic experience!
What a wonderful apartment, clean, bright, and a great location. Everything we did was so easy to get to. We had a great time on our vacation to Rhode Island.
