Cute apt in a great neighborhood
We had a great time staying in the apt in Providence. The location was great, very close to Thayer and in walking distance to Whole foods and another grocery store. Mags and Adam were very accommodating. The weather had suddenly turned hot( about 90°) and they came in and installed a/c units to make our stay more comfortable. The apt was very clean, and well kept. We also had family come to visit overnight and they were very helpful with providing additional parking for that night, which was greatly appreciated. When meeting Mags it was very apparent that she was a beautiful person, that cared about us enjoying our stay. Thank you Mags!
Thanks Jessica and family! You all rock! I enjoyed meeting you all and am so thrilled that you enjoyed and were happy with your stay. That's all I could wish for! Safe travels!!
Quiet, Clean & Central to everything
I have to start by saying if you are simply considering a trip to Providence, you must. It is a wonderful city and you will not be disappointed. There's something for everyone and getting around the State is a breeze. This apartment was so centrally located that it made walking or driving around town super easy. The unit was clean and ready for me when I arrived. The location is quiet and tucked away on a seldom traveled side street. Blackstone Blvd is just around the corner as is Wayland Square. 5 minute walk to Thayer St./Brown University/RISD. Drive downtown in less than 5 minutes, too. Great stay. I will certainly book this place again on my next getaway to Providence.
Lisa was a wonderful guest! We truly enjoyed hosting her and she took incredible care of the place. Please come back anytime!
Clean, sunny eastside apartment
We stayed here for a long weekend while in town house hunting for upcoming relocation. It was great to stay in and explore this neighbourhood. Mags was wonderful and accommodating -- we had some travel issues that affected our arrival and she was very flexible. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. Great to have off street parking. It is a third floor walk-up with narrow stairs which would be difficult with any large luggage. Would definite stay again or put family up here.
Thanks again for staying Chelsea! You all were great guests! Please come back again!
Absolutely wonderful little place.
It really was perfect for us. Couldn't be any cleaner! Very very clean. Owner communicates with you. There was roof work during our stay. She gave us plenty of warning and offered us options to stay elsewhere. ...Even gave us a partial refund just for the inconvenience. She really was amazing.
Nice and clean, quiet location, air conditioning, wifi, fully equipped kitchen and a full bath. Linens included, just like a hotel! It's an easy walk to get groceries just south of the apartment and Brown is an easy 15 min walk to the west. Parking is available, although we did not need it. Mag's was very helpful and responsive in answering any questions. Thanks for letting us stay in your apartment!
Great location, lots of charm, and a great owner
To start, Mags was great to work with on this rental. I sent her messages when our family was considering it and she responded very quickly which only motivated us even further to go with her apartment. All of her instructions on getting in were spot on and we "checked-in" with no problem at all. The apartment was extremely clean and had a ton of charm. The den where the futon is located was a perfect "room" for our son and while the apartment is not huge it was a perfect size for a family of three. The friends we were visiting in Rhode Island made sure that we understood that we were staying in the nice part of town and we could certainly see that right away. Mags also checked on us during our stay just to make sure things were going well.
Just as a note, we drove our Toyota Avalon and we were concerned about fitting in the garage and as it turned out it was no problem at all. So don't let the need for a compact car scare you away.
All and all we loved the place and should we visit Rhode Island again we will definitely work with Mags!
