About Steve Emma
We love fine dining, and in Providence, there are a great many fine restaurants to visit. Martha and Steve have a life-long interest in the arts, and love to go to museums and concerts, including dance concerts and classical and jazz music. Steve is a retired botanist/horticulturist and currently am an enthusiast for "paleo botany" or plant fossils, and minerals. Martha is a retired a clinical social worker of over 25 years years experience, and is a practitioner of yoga. We love to walk or hike and enjoy the many parks, hiking trails, and bike paths that Rhode Island offers.
Why Steve Emma chose Wanskuck
Although the house was built in 1960, this property has been in the family for over 100 years, and the house was passed down to us from Steve's mother and father. At one time this area was pastures and orchards; now of course, it is a city neighborhood. Steve still maintains a small vegetable garden and a few fruit trees on the land that his great-grandparents gardened through the Great Depression and World War II. We have a perspective on the history of the many changes that have occurred in the neighborhood. The dwarf apple tree in the front yard is a favorite tree and we pick apples for pies all fall.

It was a nice, clean, and functional apartment. The fruit and goodie basket was a very nice touch. The book telling us about the family, and information about the area was very helpful. We’d recommend this place to others. Thank you.
Home away from home
Steve and Martha were the best. Everything was perfect. If you want a quiet, clean stay, this is the place. If your thing is to party and be rowdy, go somewhere else. Fortunately, this is exactly what my family and I were looking for
Lourdes and her family were a pleasure to host! They were friendly and considerate guests, and left our rental property in good condition. We hope that they return to Emma's Place in the future, and would recommend them as guests to any other host.
What a gem!
This is great little apartment in Providence. The place was spotless and well stocked with linens, water, coffee, etc. Martha and Steve provided everything we needed for a care free stay. We'll be back next year!
Very well kept property, not just clean but really well organized too. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. It is located across the street from the entry to the college and consequently benefits from a gate house which gives an additional sense of security as well as very frequent bus service downtown for anyone needing public transportation. Will use again whenever I return to Providence.
Immaculate, organized, safe, friendly owners, right next to Providence University, would stay again!
We had a great stay at Emma's Place. Steve and Martha were fantastic hosts and their attention to detail was very impressive. Thanks for a great graduation weekend!
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
