Interaction with guests

I am available and live in this shared space. My partner, Sam, will also be available to answer questions and help make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Other things to note

Please respect our space. Treat it as your own. Please, no shoes in the house (there is a shoe rack in the entrance of the home and in your bedroom on the lower rung of your wooden luggage rack). And please, clean up after yourselves.

We welcome cooking in our home, as it is also a passion of ours, and ask that dishes are cleaned, dried and returned to their original place upon departure. Pots and pans should be cooled after use before washing to prevent warping of the metal.

Finally, please put drinks and food on provided coasters and mats. The majority of our furniture is solid wood, and can easily be damaged without coasters and mats. They are both provided for your convenience.

If you can't find something in the house, please ask. We will gladly help you find it, if it's available and provided.

Louis' place is a wonderful place to stay - close to Brown, easy access and parking, and wonderful hosts! Even though we only spent one night, we felt truly cared for and enjoyed the hosts' hospitality greatly. This is an oasis in Providence - highly recommended!

Louis and Sam were excellent hosts! We booked very last minute and were in and out of the place in a rush, but they facilitated everything with ease and made us feel super welcome. The room and the apartment are both great and really accessible to RISD, Brown, and downtown Providence. A stellar experience!

Staying at Louis' home was only a little better than I expected – because I already expected it to be wonderful! Clean, crisp and tidy apt and guest room with everything I needed to be comfortable. Louis and his partner Samiah were gracious, friendly and helpful. Louis was easy-going about check-in and very accomodating when I needed to leave my bag later than check-out time. The apt is wonderfully convenient to Brown University, College Hill and the Eastside. I will definitely look to stay with them again next time I'm in Providence!

Louis has a lovely home - the location is ideal if you're looking to stay near Brown/RISD. Very convenient to a number of restaurants etc, and they provided a helpful book with recommendations in the area. The room was cozy and clean with nice amenities, and Louis was a great host. Would highly recommend.

My favorite part of this place is its location. The place is located in a very nice neighborhood and everything is with one a mile from the house. I felt very secure walking in the neighborhood even late at night. Louis is a great host. They have a really nice place and the room was very clean and the bed room was comfortable. I would definitely stay there again!

Great location for anyone visiting RISD or Brown universities. 10-15 minute walk to both schools. This convenient location combined with he hospitality and undetstanding of the hosts makes this a solid value.
