"Pottery Barn" style 3-bedroom home is open and light-filled with wonderful gathering spaces...including a treehouse! Reviewed as the "Nordstrom of Airbnb", minutes from Brown University, RISD, and WaterFire. 45 minutes to Newport and Boston. In the Hope Street Village area on the East Side, walking distance to restaurants and cafés, one block from park with Farmers' Market and craft fair on weekends. Perfect home base for family celebrations, get-away weekends, college visits and more!

The space

A lovely, fun-filled home located in the best area of the East Side of Providence, RI! Pretty front porch (with rocking chairs and porch swing) opens up to spacious living/dining/kitchen area on the first floor. Sunroom with gas fireplace and 1/2 bath features sliding doors to a large deck and fenced backyard with treehouse and swing, fire pit, and beautiful gardens. Three bedrooms and full bath located on the second floor and a fourth bedroom space with 1/2 bath in the lower level. WiFi, linens and towels (plus bathrobes and toiletries), Keurig machine (including coffee) and welcome basket with baked goods, milk and cream, juice and fruit is included.

Guest access

Entire house and yard spaces (we are not living in the home, but it is completely furnished and decorated.) An office area (with a separate and private entrance) will not be accessible, and may be occupied by the owner at limited times during weekdays. There is room for 2 (potentially 3) cars in the driveway.

Interaction with guests

I will greet all guests when possible and be available by phone or text at any time (we live 15 minutes away). We have a keyless entry system and the code changes with each guest (and is set to a code of the guest's choosing).

Other things to note

We have loved this house so much and it has been the stage for many celebrations. I am a graphic designer and advertising consultant for colleges and universities. My studio is located in an annex to the home, with a private and secure entrance. We recently moved our family for school opportunities, but are thrilled to now have the chance to share this happy home on AirBNB.

Kristen's house was perfect for a family get-together and she was enthusiastic and helpful. There's lots of great restaurants nearby and a wonderful bike/running trail nearby. The house is lovely with many many charming touches throughout. Our family was delighted with our stay.

If you would grade an Airbnb host and property by 1 (worst) to 10 (best), the owner and this property should get 20. First, to start with, this property is super charming New England home you would want to live. It has freshly painted walls with beautiful molding throughout the house. The family room is adjacent to dining/kitchen space, which then connects to porch and backyard. The flow of the traffic is very well planned and entertaining. The kitchen is top notch you would only see in catalogue, not in a real life of mine. The second floor can accommodate one to two family for sleeping comfortably. I am from New England area and owns a house build in 1909, and I know what it takes to maintain and improve the houses of this history. Well done, Kristen, the owner, for your interior design worthy of a featured article in an interior magazine. Kristen was also above and beyond in her cordiality, being eager to entertain us as her guests. She put together a basket of bakery items from the local bakery, and put basic grocery items in the refrigerator before we arrived. She even prepared a basket of toiletry items in the second-floor bathroom. The basket even had a solution for contact lenses! The house also sits in an upscale neighborhood. The walk around the neighborhood itself is entertaining by reviewing manicured landscaping and collection of million dollar homes. A restaurant called Chef Pascal within steps from this property attracts many guests from the neighborhood. After we had finished our stay, all of us came home fully motivated to renovate (or at least clean) our houses. This is a true testament of how much we enjoyed the stay and appreciated the beauty of the house. I highly recommend Kristen and this property for your AirBnB stay.

Nobuhiko, thank you so much for this amazing review! I am so happy you appreciated all the details and you are so right about maintaining 1900-era homes...a labor of love for sure! I hope your plans bring you back to Providence soon, would love to host you and your family again. Have a great summer! Kristen

Kristen's home was just amazing. Beautiful, cozy and filled with everything a family would ever need! Kids and dogs enjoyed their time at this perfectly situated home. Walking distance to great restaurants, farmer's market and minutes from Brown where we were dropping off kids. Decor and amenities just perfect. Will definitely be back.

Kristen is the most amazing and gracious host imaginable; literally the Nordstrom of airbnb! I traveled to Providence where I and my daughters were gathering with their significant others for birthday celebrations. Kristen met me with goodies from the local bakery and had candles, sparklers and birthday messages. Her home is beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need or want. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils and dishware necessary for cooking breakfast to a holiday meal! The outdoor yard is perfectly picturesque complete with lighted treehouse as well as a lovely seating area, grill and fire pit! The bedrooms are light filled and beautiful, the beds super comfy, while the house itself is spacious with all the amenities one could possibly hope for. The neighborhood has a fabulous park, shops and restaurants all within walking distance. The area is very quaint yet centrally located to the downtown area as well as Brown and RISD. Kristen had suggestions for us with restaurants and activities which we took and couldn't have been happier with the results! Kristen and her home truly represent the gold standard of airbnb, the care and attention to detail ensured my family and I had the most special stay and the opportunity to create lasting memories all within Kristen's lovely Emporium of Happiness! The day we left, we were already planning our return! We will definitely be back!
