Located in historic Smith Hill, this immaculate open floor plan penthouse apartment with private entrances, bath and kitchen is conveniently close to Brown, RISD, PC, RI College, Down-city, Providence Place, Amtrak/MBTA Station, and I-95. Sleeps 3.

The space

Bright and sunny, this private penthouse loft on the top floor of a 3-family Victorian provides comfort and amenities beyond expectation. With your tranquil repose in mind and with state-of-the art technology, this space is for the discerning traveler who seeks comfort, value, cleanliness, peace of mind and privacy. Sleeps two comfortably; a third can be accommodated on the sleeper sofa. Off-street parking for 1 vehicle provided.

Egyptian cotton linens provided as a standard on the queen sized bed. Pillows are also encased in allergen protectors, eliminating dust mites and pollutants that interfere with your peaceful sleep. (OK, so I am a bit of a "freak" when it comes to prevention and cleanliness, I confess!) For those with allergies to feathers, cats, etc., there are none on the premises (down-alternative comforters and pillows), although there is a friendly mini-Schnauzer (hypo-allergenic breed) who "rules the roost" here and may be encountered on the property. However, your private space is off limits to him.

Extra linens and towels are provided, along with terry cloth robes, slippers, blow dryer, shampoos, conditioners, soaps, shower gels, toothbrushes, dental floss, toothpaste, mouthwash, etc.

The apartment also comes fully equipped with a chef's kitchen including microwave, toaster, toaster oven, gas range, refrigerator, dishwasher, disposal, pots and pans, pressure cooker, rotisserie oven, dinnerware, silverware, cutlery, coffee-maker (including French-press, mocha pot and Keurig® machine), tea kettle, burr coffee grinder, juicer, food processor, selection of teas, coffees (ground, whole bean, and for those in a rush, k-cups), condiments, and of course, disinfecting wipes! Additionally, the kitchen is equipped with every imaginary tool the finest chef could require.

Fresh fruit and juice (sealed and commercially supplied) and additional commercially prepared breakfast snacks supplied in fridge, along with a snack tray of assorted treats.

"Alexa" is your personal digital assistant, providing "smarthome" convenience courtesy of Amazon Echo®. Boston Acoustics® wireless speakers allow you to connect your Bluetooth® enabled mobile devices. Mac Desktop computer with dual 27 inch cinema display for browsing the web has a webcam (which, if you prefer, can be turned off) for video conferencing. Fios high speed wifi internet access provided for your mobile devices.

Carbon monoxide, fire/smoke detector, and fire extinguisher installed as standard safety protocol. Two umbrellas are also provided. The property has 24 hour security video surveillance of common areas, backyard, main entrances, and entrances to the guest unit. See house rules regarding the security cameras located in your unit.

The space has been treated with diatomaceous earth, a fine organic powder made from sea creatures that prevents pest infestation (bed bugs, etc.). The apartment is also regularly checked for any signs of problems, and routinely treated with organic prophylactics, just in case. An ounce of prevention...

In winter, a small electric fireplace adds additional heat, coziness and ambiance, should you desire. Snow removal is provided in the parking area and grounds for you and your vehicle, providing hassle-free egress and ingress.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the laundry facilities in the basement of the house, equipped with detergent, fabric softener, bleach, iron and ironing board. The common patio area with grill and chiminea, tiki torches, table and chairs is also available (*see House Rules) for use.

Interaction with guests

I will make myself available for questions and concerns during your stay, if not personally, then via mobile. Other than that, you most probably may see me maintaining the gardens, walking Mr. Fritz (my overly friendly mini-Schnauzer), or attending to the common areas of the house. Otherwise, you are "on your own", and I will be non-intrusive.

Other things to note

On July 31. 2014, Airbnb released the first environmental impact study on the sustainability of home sharing:

In North America alone, Airbnb guests use 63 percent less energy than hotel guests—that’s enough to power 19,000 homes for one year! It’s clear the Airbnb community is making a huge difference.

Highlights from the study include:

In one year alone, Airbnb guests in North America saved the equivalent of 270 Olympic-sized pools of water while avoiding the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 33,000 cars on North American roads.
Airbnb hosts also tend to engage in sustainable practices. Nearly 83% of Airbnb hosts in North America report owning at least one energy efficient appliance at their property.

In North America, 95% of Airbnb hosts say they recycle at least one item type at their property; 94% of guests report that they recycle when possible.
When staying at an Airbnb, guests are 10-15% more likely to use public transportation, walk or bicycle as their primary mode of transportation than if they had stayed at a hotel.

So, by booking on Airbnb, you are contributing to sustainability and conservation of global resources, lowering your carbon impact on the planet, enjoying a more personalized experience, and saving boatloads of money when compared to booking with traditional hospitality venues! Good stuff!

Ron's loft is eclectic, tasteful and has every amenity one could ask for. I loved how much light came in through both windows and skylights. A great place.

We loved staying at Ron's apartment. We found it so much more inviting than a hotel. This was our first Airbnb experience, and I think we will be disappointed with any other one we go to because this one had everything!! Ron had every amenity you could think of. There were snacks, fresh fruit, and every kitchen gadget you could possibly think of. The entire loft was decorated so nicely and has so many things to offer. It rained the first night we were in Providence and we didn't mind that we were stuck inside. We had a little issue with parking (the lot is very tight if you have a car larger than a sedan), Ron responded right away to my text and it was fixed. If you are looking for a place that you can just walk to downtown, this might not be for you. We didn't feel very comfortable walking in the neighborhood after dark (and it's about 1.5 miles to downtown). But it's a really quick drive and there was plenty of parking around Benefit street. We enjoyed walking from there to downtown. It definitely wouldn't stop us from staying at the apartment again. I don't think you can find a better value in Providence!

Ron's place is fantastic! The apartment was very comfortable, and had everything you could ever need & more. The apartment is a few minute drive/uber/lyft from everything in Providence! Ron was a great host! We'll definitely be staying here the next time we are in town. Thanks Ron!

I am a self-employed professional with a penchant for gardening, cooking, fine wine and feng shui. I love to travel and explore undiscovered corners and cultures of the planet and likewise love coming home to an immaculate, peaceful, beautiful home, where I am greeted with unconditional love by my mini Schnauzer, Fritz. I enjoy hosting visitors to Providence for whatever reason, and my goal in doing so is to ensure my guests feel welcomed, safe, comfortable, and pampered, all the while elevating the art of hospitality to higher standards. I am fluent in English and Portuguese, and "quasi" fluent in Spanish and French.
