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. ).
We really enjoyed our stay in East Providence. Michael's apt is a dream.....all the comforts of home and more. It is witjin easy driving distance of Cape Cod, Newport and Boston....and an Outlet Mall in Mass. Two or 4 people can stay here easily. The apt is clean, well equipped and very comfortable.
Nous avons séjourné du 28 juin au 2 juillet 2015. Nous avons eu quelques communications avec Michael, celui-ci répond très rapidement à nos questions. Nous avons trouvés que le code des portes étaient ingénieux et très efficaces. Malgré l'heure tardive nous arrivions du Québec (Canada) et le traffic intense à l'approche de Boston, nous avons pu nous installer sans problème. L'appartement est impeccable, exactement comme sur les photos. Il contenait tout ce que nous avions besoin pour notre séjour. Le secteur est calme et accessible soit en auto ou par le transport public de East Providence / Providence ($2.00). Nous avons appréciés la discrétion, le respect et la confiance de notre hôte. Il est clair pour nous que nous recommanderions cet appartement.
Michael's apartment was absolutely perfect for our girls' weekend reunion in Providence. It has everything you'd need for a weekend away and was comfortable and charming. We had a small issue with the keyless entrance and Michael was reachable and responsive with a quick solution--thanks! Ladies, there's even a hair dryer and nail polish remover here :) We so enjoyed our weekend and would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay for 4 days in East Providence. Michael answered a questions in a very quick manner. The apartment is easy to access, wifi and cable were easy to use, everything was great. The location was great for accessing Providence and other family's homes in Attleboro. We will definitely be back.
Michael's place is very warm, cozy and most importantly... clean. We appreciated the thoughtfulness of having a full equipped kitchen and things like shampoo/conditioners/shower gel and "FAQs" on a piece of paper. This was our very first experience with Airbnb. Michael/Pat have made the experience so pleasant. Thanks you.
It's a very cute house, we enjoyed our stay! It's very clean!
Our stay in Mike's apartment was great. Communication was easy, Mike was really courteous, replied promptly and dealt (patiently!) with my accommodation changes.
The apartment is in a great location, easy to get to the city either by car or public transport and also well positioned to get out and explore areas further afield. The neighbourhood is quiet, a family area and well-located for getting to supermarkets and other stores for all the necessities.
The apartment has everything for a relaxing stay - plenty of space and comfortable furniture to relax after a day out; lots of fluffy towels, great beds and the added bonus of a phone to use for free calls in the US so we were able to stay in touch with friends and deal with our cell phone service provider issues without any cost, which we really appreciated.
All in all, a definite 5-start stay and we wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else f we're back in Providence.
