This private two-room suite, is a quiet oasis with lots of light, a large bedroom, separate living space, small eating area, and closets GALORE. Located on the East Side of Providence, the house is in walking distance to some of the best shops and restaurants in town. The space is perfect for long-term guests (graduate fellows, traveling nurses, medical residents, etc.), or couples looking for a weekend getaway enjoying all the food, sights, and culture Providence has to offer.

The space

Sunny and airy, this space is a welcome retreat for my long- and short-term guests. Located in the renovated attic of this almost 100-year-old cottage, the suite runs the full length of this single-family cottage giving it the spacious feel of an apartment. And the wall-to-wall Berber carpeting makes the entire space cozy and quiet.

Three skylights and windows at either end provide loads of light and excellent ventilation when the weather is mild. The attic space has a separate heating zone and an A/C, which means guests control their heating and cooling comfort levels.

The stairs leading up to the space are just off the shared kitchen, which separates the suite from the rest of the house. Guests enter the suite through the living room space, which features a sleeper sofa, TV, and two large closets with built-in drawers for storing clothing. Next, enter the small eating area that separates the living room from the bedroom. Here you’ll find a small dinette set, a mini-fridge, and three drawers that store dishes, and provide a dry pantry for food items guests might want to keep upstairs. Dinnerware, mugs & glasses, utensils, and an electric kettle are also on hand. There’s also a third large closet here, which is ideal for storing suitcases, boxes, or additional hanging items.

The bedroom is the largest space in the suite and it features two skylights, blackout shades, a queen-sized bed, storage cube, work desk, and reading chair with a view into the quiet street. Bedding, towels, and a laundry hamper and basket for dirty clothes are all provided by the host.

Brown University, RISD, Miriam Hospital, and the downtown area are all easily accessible by bike, bus, or walking, as is the shopping area in Wayland Square. There is a running path less than half a mile away on Blackstone Boulevard, and Swan Point Cemetery is a great place for a leisurely stroll where you can see names of former city (and state) leaders. It’s also where you can look for H.P. Lovecraft's grave.

You’ll have access to high speed Wi-Fi, a high definition TV with a DVD player and slots for connecting a computer, Firestick or Chromecast to view broadband content.

Guest access

The kitchen and bathroom are located on the main level, and will be shared with the host. The laundry facilities are located in the basement. Long-term guests are encouraged to bring their own laundry supplies (detergent, dryer sheets, etc.)

Additionally, there’s a grill on the small deck that guests can use, and there’s also a table with chairs where you can enjoy a meal or work, and a hammock chair that's perfect for reading or just taking in a beautiful sunset.

Guests will be provided a key and will be shown how to activate the house-wide alarm system, which is set every night. There is a nominal fee for replacing lost keys.

Interaction with guests

Since I'm sharing space in my home, I will be around. Although I am a fairly private person, I'm always happy to help with questions about the neighborhood or Providence in general. I can tell you the great spots for food, fun, and relaxation in and around Providence. And, as a transplanted New Yorker, if you want a day trip to the city, I can tell you the best places to see in the Big Apple.

This is a place where the pickiest person cannot even say a negative word. The whole second floor is all for you, with windows from the ceiling showing you a square of starry sky. The room is warmly decorated, with any items you could imagine: TV sets, a small refrigerator, tooth brushes, towels, and so on... I feel like I'm enjoying a VIP service in a hotel. The neighborhood is peaceful and safe, and everything is clean and in a good order. I would want to come here again! My best airbnb experience by far!

We stayed with Felicia for my 5 year reunion at Brown. We had such a great stay! Her place is beautiful and perfect. Private, yet homey. The room is a converted attic with both sleeping and living areas. Check in went well despite a delayed train. Check out was a breeze. We had a back entrance to come and go as needed. My brother and his girlfriend even stayed for one night and Felicia made up a bed for them on the futon. Our walk to campus was about 30 minutes--a little longer than expected, but very easy with Uber/Lyft. I would definitely stay again!

I was at Felicia's a little more than a week; and it was great. She herself is very sweet and helpful, and the place is so much brighter and larger than the pictures show. I was there in Providence at a beautiful time of the year; and when I mentioned to Felicia then I love seeing the forsythia – next thing I knew she had added a sprig of it to the vice with the hyacinths. All in all, a lovely spot and a great day!

Felicia is an amazing host! She is a genuine and kind person and made my stay very welcoming and comfortable! I stayed for 12 weeks and no complaints! Being from Indiana and incredibly unfamiliar with the New England area, she made great suggestions for everything!! She is in a great location which was a positive for me! Highly recommend her for any length of stay!

This was my first Airbnb experience, I stayed at Felicia’s place for four months. I really enjoyed it. I had my own living room and bedroom. They were quite, super comfortable, spacious, and beautiful. I can cook my favorite Chinese food at the kitchen which I shared with Felicia. Felicia is a friendly host; she often gives me a ride to markets and school. In addition, the location of her place is perfect, not only very close to the bus station, but also lots to do within walking distance. I cannot imagine how my stay could have been better! A wonderful place in a safe neighborhood with a nice host! Hope I can stay at Felicia’s place again when I visit Providence.

I live and work in Providence, RI where I am a lapsed artist and freelance Digital Strategist. I am an avid photographer, who loves to travel. I've spent time in Scandinavia, Italy, London, Mexico, Southern France, and Brazil. I consider myself an active introvert, in that I love observing and photographing people on my travels. I first discovered Airbnb when I took my mom to Paris for the first time in 2012. It was a wonderful experience, and I hope that as a host, I'll provide a warm, welcoming, and relaxing experience for my guests. As a host, I'll do my best to be informative and helpful, while also giving my guests privacy and space. I'm pretty low-key, but also social and want guests to feel comfortable and safe.
