Great location & wonderful place

Great location & wonderful place

This apartment was perfect for my family of three. The location was ideal to a park, trails, shops, restaurants & Brown. We were able to walk to WholeFoods to prepare some meals in the full kitchen if we didn't want to eat out as well. My 12 yr old loved his own space with the comfortable pull out couch and we found the master bedroom restful.

We were in town to visit family, and Mags was extremely wonderful in accommodating my request for an earlier check in since we flew on a tiring red eye. Her place was spotless, had new comfortable linens, and had every creature comfort to include much needed coffee and spices ready to use.

The one bedroom & one bath apartment is spacious and light filled, with old world charm.
I would highly recommend staying in this lovely area and in this apartment.

Mags provided excellent and responsive service and clear instructions for access to the garage and home, and even down to how to use the tv remote. No detail was forgotten which I greatly appreciate.

Don't hesitate in staying here, it's wonderful.

A wonderful way to visit Providence

  • 5 out of 5
A charming apartment in a quiet and safe neighborhood! This second-floor apartment was great, very clean, and pleasantly furnished. Hardwood floors, new Ikea furniture, and simple but lovely artwork. The owner was professional, thorough and attentive on the arrangements and follow-through. The listing description was accurate. This would be a great option for a couple with a young child, as the extra room has a crib and is young child-friendly. Parking in the small garage definitely required having a compact car and it took a couple extra minutes to keep the car in the garage while at the apartment, but not a significant concern.

Wayland Square is a lovely area with some great cafes and shopping, a very short walk from the apartment. Very quick to get to Brown University and Thayer Street, just straight along Angell Street. Great access to a small Whole Foods, another nice food market and some great wine stores. Would definitely recommend this rental or return to it.

Owner's Response: She was a splendid guest who treated the place as if it were her own. She was easy to communicate with and left the place in great condition. I wouldn't hesitate to rent to her again!

Owner's Response: Bonnie and her husband were the kind of wonderful guests that felt like old friends visiting for a week. I felt like the place was in good capable hands and with people I could trust. She left the place in great condition and they were model guests. One of the things I love about sharing our home is that it tends to be really convenient for families; parents with kids, parents visiting kids, or just family visiting loved ones for special occasions. We are so happy the place was useful and convenient to Bonnie's family and they are welcome back anytime.
