Overview

Bristol Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Fully furnished, 5 room apartment, 1st floor. Two bedrooms, sleeps 2 guests in each room. Fully equipped kitchen, cozy living room, tiled bathroom, and a relaxing family/TV room. Maximum occupancy is 4 guests.

The rear yard is immaculately landscaped for your comfort and enjoyment. Mature junipers, azaleas, rhododendrons, roses, and flower beds surround a Koi fish pond, with two spacious patios for your relaxation. At the end of a busy day, you can sit back on a patio lounge chair, with a book and a cool drink, and enjoy the piece and quiet that emanates from such a tranquil garden setting. Security lights are installed in rear yard and garden areas.

A productive vegetable garden provides produce all summer long, as do the grape vine arbors and fig trees in the fall. Help yourself to whatever is ready for picking. The apple, pear, and peach trees burst into bloom in early spring, resulting in a beautiful display of pink and white flowers.

The apartment is located within walking distance of many fine Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Historic Homes, America's Cup Museum, Veteran's Memorial Garden, Antique Shops, Shopping District, Hair Salons, Library, Art Museum, Bristol Harbor, Bike Path, and Bristol's Historic 4th of July Parade.

A short ride to Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum; Mount Hope Farm; Roger Williams University; Coggeshall Farm Museum; Audubon's Nature Center; and Colt State Park, the finest state park in Rhode Island, with over 400 acres of plush meadows along the shores of Narragansett Bay, where you can enjoy biking, walking, boating, picnicking, and fishing.

Bristol is located between Providence (20 minute ride North), and Newport (30 minute ride South). There are many parks, theaters, golf courses, historic sites, and fun places to visit along the way, in either direction.

Close to Routes 95 and 195 to Providence, Boston and Cape Cod. Also near Route #24 to Newport, Jamestown, and New Bedford (the Whaling City).

We are 3 mothers of teenagers and we had a get away weekend here! It was great! The gardens are lovely, and the extra treats from the Mrs. were delicious. Everything was clean, the parking out back was easy to get to. We were in and out, going to Newport, and Bristol was a great location.

Owner's Response: Great feedback from 3 wonderful guests. Nice to hear that they enjoyed their stay at the Gardener's Apartment. We take pride in knowing that our rental property is clean and comfortable, and located within walking distance of historic downtown Bristol. Our gardens are well maintained with an abundance of flowers, fruits and vegetables, which we share with our guests. We were pleased to see them cooking on the outdoor grill and enjoying their meals on the patio that overlooks the gardens. Very nice, quiet and considerate people.

Wonderful visit to Bristol RI

  • 5 of 5
The Gardener's apartment was the perfect place to stay. It has all the amenities of home The pictures of the apartment were exact, comfortable, quiet and cozy. The Castros' were the most pleasant proprietors and more than helpful in finding our way around Bristol regarding restaurants, which were excellent and informing us of Bristol's interesting history. Would recommend to anyone the Gardener's Apartment in Bristol RI. It was a memorable vacation and hope to return again someday.

AN OASIS IN COLONIAL BRISTOL RHODE ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
Ed and Rachel have made an Oasis in Beautiful Colonial Bristol. Everything was clean, convenient and located in the heart of Downtown Bristol. The Castro's garden out back is divine. Ed and Rachel are beautiful people that make you feel like "their Casa is your Casa". I highly recommend staying with them if good fortune brings you to the beautiful and breathtaking, Ocean state,Sincerely, Rhode Island.

Great stay at the Gardener's Apartment in Bristol

Great stay at the Gardener's Apartment in Bristol
  • 5 of 5
We were in Bristol for a very quick stay at a wedding. The Gardener's Apartment was the perfect place for us - great location within walking distance to everything in town! The apartment is exactly as pictured and was extremely clean and well maintained. Rachel and Ed were amazing hosts - baked treats were there when we arrived and we got more fresh treats for the drive home! They also gave us a great dinner recommendation for a place nearby and even called ahead to get us a table. If we're ever back in Bristol, we'll absolutely stay with them again and I highly recommend the apartment!

Owner's Response: Nice receiving such positive comments about "The Gardener's Apartment" from Laura and Chris, two great guests from Ottawa, Ontario. They were visiting Bristol to attend a wedding and we did get to spend some time with them between their wedding events. A very nice young couple. We hope that they come back to visit us again and spend more time exploring Bristol.

Had a lovely stay at this location - had rented both apartments and all who stayed enjoyed being there. The location was terrific - easy walking distance and the hospitality unsurpassed! We received baked goods several times a day which really made our visit extra special! the owners were very gracious - helpful at every turn and thorough in showing us around and acquainting us with everything in the apartments. Their gardens were incredible - they've really got a hidden oasis there in town... will return there again to be sure!
