Interaction with guests

We prefer an introductory phone call with prospective guests. We will greet the guests and show them the house and how to get around, including a map of the area. Beyond that, the guests will have the house to themselves. If we are not here, our neighbor will introduce you to the house and be available as a first point of contact should any issues arise. We also offer an optional bed and breakfast arrangement if we are unable to vacate the house.

Other things to note

The house has many architectural details that take you back to the beginning of the 20th century, such as bulls-eye door trim, wainscoting leaded glass windows and hardwood floors throughout. The pantry has glass cabinets and a second dishwasher, as well as frosted glass trim. The third floor bathroom, originally intended for the household live in help, which was common in this area in the early 1900's, features a ball and claw bathtub and a rare wooden toilet.

There are two dishwashers in the house, one in the kitchen and one in the pantry. PLEASE ONLY USE THE KITCHEN WASHER.

The Kitchen Sink and the Pantry Sink both have garbage disposals. The Kitchen disposal switch is under the cabinets on the left.
The house has on-demand hot water. While this means it never runs out, it also means it takes a while to heat up, so be patient.

The house is NOT child proof so please be vigilant with toddlers and little ones getting into cabinets and closets.
The alarm system will not be engaged during your stay but will beep once every time the door is opened. This is just to let you know that the door is opening, it is not an alarm.

Elias' home is in a quiet residential neighborhood on a corner with a pretty garden. It is very spacious and worked well for our family during our time in Providence

We spent an unforgettable weekend at Elias's home. The house is absolutely amazing-clean, spacious, and well-decorated! Everything here was great. Unfortunately we did not met Elias in person, but we were welcomed by Andrea, who is patient and helpful! We will definitely recommend this house!

LOVED this beautiful home!!! Staying here was super relaxing and just what we needed. The photos don't do this beautiful home justice and Elias was very reliable and an excellent communicator. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking to stay in the area.

This is an absolutely lovely home. We stayed here with five guests for graduation week, while Elias and his wife also resided with us. The home - To our delight, the space was larger than expected. The downstairs has multiple large rooms (kitchen, dining room, living room), perfect for hosting guests for parties as we did. The upstairs has two bedrooms that were clean and warm (one on the 2nd floor, the other on the 3rd floor), with needed amenities provided (towels, extra blankets). The backyard is spacious, with a large gas BBQ pit with all the tools you'd need for grilled perfection. A neat feature is that there are house speakers so you're able to listen to your favorite tunes throughout the entire house (+outside!). Overall, the atmosphere was very quiet and comfortable. The location - The neighborhood is glorious. The homes are beautiful, roads paved with large mature trees, making for wonderful walks outside. The house is right by Wayland Square which boasts many lovely restaurants and cute stores. A 15 minute walk away will bring you to the heart of Brown University, which felt very accessible (about a 3 minute car ride). The host(s) - Elias is a very thoughtful host. Every morning he and his wife, Joanne, made us a light breakfast of croissants, fruit, and tea. They were very thoughtful about being helpful when needed, and providing us space otherwise. They are lovely people who are well travelled and exude warm spirits. Overall, we would recommend this location. We would rent again. Thank you Elias & Joanne for such wonderful hospitality! <3

The house is gorgeous. Centrally located, easy walk to Wayland Square and Blackstone Boulevard. Kitchen is well equipped with everything one might need. Bedrooms are large, third floor bathroom is small but usable. The outdoor space is generous, shopping center around the corner. Highly recommend
