Private bed and bath for two. Renovated in 2015 with new furniture, fixtures, hardwood floors and HVAC. Beautiful 1883 Queen Anne Victorian in a safe, quiet neighborhood, centrally located to most everything. Possible additional rooms if needed.

NOTE: During the school months of Sep–Dec and Jan–May, we rent long-term to grad students and visiting professors. Ask about our special rates.

The space

The 3rd-floor bedroom is spacious yet cozy with a Queen bed, desk, comfy wingback chair, large walk-in closet and new hardwood floors. The private bathroom has new fixtures and lovely tile floor. You’ll find all the amenities you need, including a blowdryer. If you’re missing anything, please let us know.

Guest access

We have a parking space for guests in our driveway (there is no overnight parking in Providence). One of our cars will be parked in the garage, so most likely, we’ll need to coordinate and jockey cars in the morning.

Guests are invited to enjoy our living area, including the kitchen. Feel free to make yourself a cup of tea, store leftovers in our fridge, and reheat food in the microwave. Since we are primarily vegetarian, we ask that no red meat, pork or fish dishes be reheated. Chicken is okay, though. We ask that you do not cook on the stove, unless you are a long-term guest. And please clean up after use.

We’d be happy to share our huge selection of organic teas. If you will need a cuppa java, we can point you to some great nearby coffee shops!

The main living area, including our bedroom, is on the 2nd floor. Our tenants live on the 1st floor. Feel free to come back in from your evening activities at any time, but we ask that noise be kept to a courteous level after 10:00 pm.

We don’t own a TV! But do have free WiFi.

Interaction with guests

We are very friendly and making conversation is the spice of life for us. We’ve been here for nearly 30 years and have traveled extensively ourselves. That translates into a love of helping guests in their own travels and sharing tips about our magnificent city and state. One of us (RISD grad) works from home, and is (almost) always available to help you navigate.

If you prefer to be less social, please tell us, and we’ll gladly respect your privacy.

Eva is an amazing hostess. Her home is a wonderful place to stay. It's beautiful, spacious, peaceful, and comfortable. It is also centrally located in Providence. I can't imagine a better place to relax and enjoy your visit. Eva also has lots of great suggestions for places to go and things to do. I would love to stay again. Thank you!

Eva and Gary are a great couple, with lively and warm personalities. They were very welcoming and our stay at their beautiful, recently updated 3rd floor bedroom with bath was very comfortable. We stayed at their place for 12 days during our move to Providence and had some great conversations with Eva and Gary during this time. Gary had some awesome books suggestions and offered the use of his incredible book collection to us. And Eva is one of the best guides around town. She has given us some really good suggestions for shopping and dining in the area, some of which we have already tried and concur with her wholeheartedly. I look forward to our continued association with Gary and Eva in the future as well and fully recommend staying at her place to anyone looking for a short or long stay. The location is also perfect and walkable to dining and downtown/ train station.

I had an absolutely delightful stay at Eva and Gary's. They are very warm and kind. They seem genuinely happy to share their home with you and to help you in any way they can. The space for guests is beautifully decorated, very private, and impeccably clean. It's in the third floor of the house with its own bathroom and it is thoughtfully equipped with plenty of pillows, towels, and toiletries. I needed to study while at their place and had a very quiet space free of distractions to do so. It was really one of the most comfortable places I have ever stayed in.

If looking for the best place to stay in Providence, look no further! Eva is great. She communicated quickly when I had any questions, and check-in was easy. The house itself is perfect. Everything was super clean. The room itself is like having an entire apartment to yourself! Eva gave us maps for all the things we wanted to do, and walking to the downtown was a breeze. There is a parking space which, is a huge plus when staying in Providence! We will definitely be using Eva and her impeccable hosting on ou next trip to Providence!!

This is the cleanest and nicest airbnb listing i have been since i started using it, one year ago. The penthouse is like a private apartment with private bathroom. Eva is a very nice host and excellent conversationalist, always willing to help and share live experiences. The place is about 20 min walk from downtown Providence ( 8 min by Uber). Including the train station. A good recommendation to visit Providence or even Boston ( 1 h by train). Thanks Eva for hosting us !

My life revolves around life with my husband Gary, family and friends...and work. I have a fairly demanding job that keeps me pretty busy, but it's highly rewarding, and I'm lucky to have talented, considerate coworkers.

In the past, I've explored ceramics, glassblowing, and weaving, and am most passionate about jewelry-making. My favorite thing is to make things and gift them to the people I love.

In 2012, I did three sprint triathlons to prove to myself that I could do it. It was a wonderful experience: there was a lot of camaraderie in our team and I gave me a good excuse to replace my 25-yr old Rockhopper with a new bike! But I'm not a natural athlete and it pretty much wiped me out. So now I'm just happy to get out and do walks or bike rides with Gary or a friend.

Travel is a passion – I've lived overseas and continue to explore different countries and cultures. My dream is to go to Bali, Prague, and Nepal. Gary and I love foreign movies, food, and music. One of our favorite experiences was hosting a visiting web developer from the Ukraine for four months in our home.

My mother taught me to always leave a place cleaner than when I arrived, so I'd be invited back again. It's been great advice, both in someone's home, and when out in nature. If you see anyone at a beach or park picking up stray cans or bottles, that's us!

We eat primarily vegetarian, and try to eat as much locally and organically grown food as possible. We don't cook meat or fish at home, but have been known to occasionally bring home a free-range pre-cooked chicken from the market.
