My partner Don and I and our Bichon Frise Jack are happy to welcome you to Providence!

Clean, sunny, newly furnished room in the city's best location, near campus, shops, and cafes. Safe, quiet neighborhood, an easy walk (1/2 mi) or 1 bus stop from Brown/RISD, & shops on Thayer/Hope/Wayland. New double bed, w/ cotton/down bedding. Off-street parking, Continental breakfast, all day coffee/tea/snacks, and Wifi included. Parking/checkin/checkout details will be emailed to you prior to arrival.

El lugar

Welcome to our home! It's called the Villa Villekulla, after Pippi Longstocking's house, and it's home to my partner Don and me, and our friendly little dog Jack.

The Villa was built in 1900, and is one of Providence's architectural gems, full of character and charm. I hope you'll feel welcome the moment you step inside. It's a single family home, not an apartment house, which adds to the welcoming and private feel. Please note that our dog Jack may be here at times when you are not but he is quiet and friendly and you don't have to interact with him if you do not wish. He doesn't take it personally. :)

The Villa is clean, quiet, sunny, & quirky, with hardwood floors, bay windows, and a working fireplace. It's located in a lovely, safe, walkable neighborhood, one of the city's best locations, with Brown and RISD campuses, as well as shopping, all within walking distance.

Included in your amenities are free wireless internet and cable tv/Netflix; Continental breakfast; coffee, tea, and snacks all day; off-street parking; and use of the living room, kitchen, porch, and laundry facilities.

Your room features a new double/full bed with a firm, plush-top mattress, finished with 100% cotton and down bedding. Plush cotton towels and bathtub/shower with plenty of hot water are great for relaxing after a long day. Please note that the bath is shared.

Located off Hope Street, it's an easy and pleasant stroll to Wayland Square, with its cafés and bookshops, yoga and fitness studios, 2 spas and 3 salons, a CVS, 6 restaurants, shoe repair and dry cleaner, along with clothing and gift shops. Rochambeau Avenue to the north is equally accessible, and features a block of great cafes, clothing and shoe store, CVA, bakery, and gift shops. Brown and RISD are an easy walk as well, and the #1 bus runs nearby so you can hop on that if you prefer.

Our neighborhood is safe, quiet, and has block after pretty block of well-kept, vintage Victorians and 20th-century colonials. There are houses of worship within walking distance, as well as Blackstone Blvd about half a mile to the east, which has lovely paths for jogging and biking. Hope High School is 2 blocks away and has a track for public use during non-school hours.

There's so much to do on campus and in town, but I hope you will find time to relax on the porch, watch a movie, or sit by the fireplace--please make yourself at home!

Continental breakfast is included and coffee/tea/snacks are available all day.

I also provide a guide that I wrote on Providence, with tips on where to go and what to do, for free. If you would like a copy of the guide let me know and I'll email it to you. Airbnb does not provide space for attaching PDFs to emails or to the listing page, unfortunately.

I rent out a second guest room on Airbnb, so there may be another guest here during your stay.

Dogs are considered on a case by case basis (depending on the breed, for insurance purposes, and because we have a dog already). Also, they are not allowed to eat the bunnies in the yard, no matter how delicious they look. ;)

Disponible para huéspedes

The front porch, driveway for parking, living room with fireplace, dining room and kitchen, washer dryer in basement, bathroom. There is a Brown campus building across the street, that has lovely grounds for strolling, too.

Atención a los huéspedes

I am friendly but unobtrusive. I like to give my guests their privacy and space, but I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

I've traveled by myself many times and so I'm very experienced as a guest. I think that helps me be a considerate host. At least, I hope so!

Otros aspectos destacables

There may be times when you are alone in the house with another guest, or with Jack our dog, so you should be comfortable with that. We try to only choose nice guests, though! and Jack is a darling.

This was only our second stay in an AirbnB where we didn't rent the whole place, and we were initially concerned... but we needn't have worried! From initial contact to check out, JJ was an amazing communicator and wonderful host. Everything was just as described, and the house is an eclectic and welcoming delight located in a quiet neighborhood convenient to everything we wanted. The guest room was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was thoughtfully appointed with travel needs like spare shampoos and other easy-to-forget toiletries. The neighborhood is safe and walkable, and JJ gave us great suggestions on places to eat and local businesses. We would happily stay again!

J.J. delivered an amazing level of hospitality. She really went out of her way to make us feel welcomed in her home. We felt like we were staying with family including some great food amenities she welcomed us with. We will definitely come back and will recommend her to any and all who ask.

J.J. was wonderful! She was very friendly and her home was a lot of fun, especially the decor. I really loved all the little touches that made her place very guest friendly. She had toiletries and towels set up where we could easily access them, and I really appreciated the carafe of water and candies she set up in the bedroom. I also loved that she had snacks available in the kitchen and everything was set up in a way that you felt comfortable grabbing them on your own. I would definitely recommend her to others traveling to the area!

Hi! I'm Jennifer Jane, but people call me JJ. I'm a writer and editor, and I enjoy traveling, singing harmonies in a band, cooking, and playing the ukulele. I love hosting and guesting on Airbnb and look forward to welcoming you to Providence!

I love being an Airbnb host, and I'm proud to be a Superhost. I just wish there was a designation for Super Guest, because so many of my guests would qualify. :)

I also rent my home out to groups; please email me for details.
