A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I have been in Warwick for nine weeks now, working at Kent Hospital. Janet's cottage has been a perfect temporary home for me. Everything that I could have needed for an extended stay was here. The cottage is so quaint, cozy, and comfortable, and Janet has been a perfect hostess, always ready to give advice on where to go and things to do. She was even able to supply me with a pair of binoculars to go birding with! In addition, the location is wonderful. It is within easy walking distance to several good restaurants and shops, and there are two nice waterfront parks as well. I have been so comfortable here, and would definitely come back here again.

Owner's Response: Great to see a guest enjoying a work stay so much. Taking advantage of days off for day trips and visiting old friends and family not seen in years ... outdoor activities in our unseasonably warm winter...never missing a moment of opportunity. That's the sort of guest I hope to see again. Traveling nurses find the location convenient for the Providence hospital complex as well as the Kent County Hospital.

We had an amazing time! The perfect getaway close to everything in RI

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in Janet's lovely cottage. Yes, it is not superbig but it has all you need. And the cottage-vibe make you feel so at home directly. We did travel with our 1,5 year old daughter and she immediately felt relaxed in the cottage. We enjoyed the kitchen were we did breakfast and prepared some dinners. It has all you need. The cottage is very bright and has a lot of windows were you see mostly green, tres and the garden.

The yard/garden that you have direct access to through the kitchen doors were such a lovely place for us to hang out in. Our daughter played around and we did enjoy the comfortable chairs. Also there is a dinner/lunch area under a pergola where we enjoyed pizza from the local pizzeria Fellini's and wine. Best pizza we had in RI!

Janet is an superb and wonderful host. We loved to chat with her in the mornings and to play with her lovely dog Watson. He needs a little time to get to know you before he get relaxed but then he is the sweetest. Our daughter adored him and Watson even let her go around with him in the leash :) Janet gives you the privacy you need, so most of the time we could have the yard/garden by our self even though it is shared with her. We enjoyed every chat and time we could spend with Janet and Watson and could only wish for more.

We had some problem with a weak signal for the wifi the first days. We have iPhones and they couldn't pick up the signal very well. Janet fixed that directly by buying a new router for the cottage the next day! Very important for us since we needed to work one day a week with good Internet. Now we will say that the wifi and the Internet is superfast. So nicely solved by Janet. It also were some hot days while we were in the cottage. The AC did its best but sometimes during the day it could be a bit warm in the cottage. But Janet did offer us an extra AC for the living room. We didn't feel we needed that for the moment. But once again it showed how important it is for Janet that her guest are having the best of times.

Pawtuxet is a sweet village with some restaurants and cafe's and a beautiful little park with a small playground for the kids. From Pawtuxet you could easily reach a lot of beautiful places, beaches and cities within 30-60 minutes. Providence is just a 10 minutes drive away.

Overall, this stay was one of our best VRBO/AIRBNB stay and we have tried maybe around a 70 the last 3 years. So we can very, very much recommend Janet's cottage!

Owner's Response: These guests from Sweden with their adorable baby were just wonderful. I was concerned about the space because the cottage is designed for two, but they didn't mind the close quarters with baby. Watson enjoyed the baby and both seemed sad to leave one another. As for the WiFi, most guests don't have a problem... only those with i-phones. What I installed was a booster, so now everyone has top speed connections. It was wonderful to have folks enjoying the yard and gardens, as well as all the beaches, Waterfires, and restaurants in the area. It makes me happy when people take advantage of all that Pawtuxet has to offer. Hopefully this little family will come again.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

Janet has managed to fit everything one needs into this lovely little cottage. I never wanted to go home! The pictures do it justice. It's adorable. The shower is not well suited for really, really tall people but I can't think of anything thing else not to love. I wish the weather had been nice so I could have sat out on the front porch or in the garden!

Can't wait to Return!

  • 5 of 5

We are native Rhode Islanders now living in Florida. We visit RI each year to spend time with family and friends. This cottage is so cozy, charming & comfortable. It has everything you could possibly need to make your stay an enjoyable one. Janet is a wonderful hostess and makes you feel at home the moment you arrive. She has so many stories and information about the area and it was a pleasure to sit and talk with her. We loved sitting on the porch in the mornings and early evening and enjoying the peace and serenity of the property. It is a very short walk to nearby Historic Pawtuxet Village where you can enjoy the many restaurants and shoppes the area has to offer. And, of course, can't forget Dear Hearts ice cream, which I think we enjoyed a little too much!!! We have already booked it for next year. And, although we hate to wish our lives away, we can't wait to return!

A great September!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here in September 2014. The cottage was cozy and well equipped and the evenings spent on the quiet porch sipping a glass of wine were so relaxing. The village of Pawtuxet was fun and friendly, and easy access to other Rhode Island scenic/historic sites made the entire experience a pleasure. Thank you Janet.

Couldn't be more idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Very nice top story studio with all conveniences in hosts’ next door colonial-era house in charming Pawtuxet Village, with great restos, sidewalk cafes and pubs on ocean cove a couple of blocks away. This is about as idyllic New England as you can get, folks!
