Martina has a beautiful apartment, it looks even better than the pictures. It's incredibly clean and spacious. Martina is super organized and can suggest many good restaurants, coffee places nearby plus you can walk to the italianrestaurants on Atwells in 20 mins. its about 30ish min walk downtown from her place. We would stay there again for sure.
Martina's apartment was so very comfortable, clean, and well planned. She lives walking distance form nice cafes and only 2 miles from Brown University. And if, like us being from Los Angeles, you are not used to humidity, she has a great central air system! Even with three kids and having to walk up to the third floor of this 100-year-old Victorian, it was a great place to stay.
It was a pleasure for me and my girlfriend to stay with Martina in her beautiful Victorian home. Her apartment was impeccably clean, decorated and filled with interesting art pieces. She was great at allowing for privacy while still being there to hand out suggestions on the best places to grab brunch or dinner.
The area she lives in is somewhat "transitional" but what it lacks in picturesque it makes up for by being the section of Providence that all the locals seem to think has the hippest bars, restaurants and coffee shops (and I tend to agree being a Brooklynite). It is also a very reasonable walk to downtown and a really cheap taxi ride to the more historic east Providence section.
Will definitely try and stay there again if we come back to Providence!
Martina's apartment is perfect for a family, with two bedrooms with double beds and a third, used as an office, with a twin bed. Everything was ready for our move in and Martina was quick to communicate whenever I had a question. She kindly allowed us to arrive a little early and even leave a little late. The apartment was spotless and well-equipped. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Martina!
We have just returned from our son's graduation from Brown, and feel so lucky to have been able to spend the week of graduation festivities at Martina's apartment! The surrounding area is delightful, with great restaurants, a beautiful park, and easy access to Downtown and College Hill; the building is historic and charming; and the apartment itself is immaculately clean, beautifully designed, fully outfitted with everything you could need, and totally comfortable. The weather was crazy -- everything from muggy heat to freezing rain -- but we were cozy and comfortable inside. The beds were excellent, the artwork delightful, and I could have happily spent a year just reading Martina's collection of books! We only met Martina briefly, but enjoyed our conversation, and really appreciated the tips she gave us about restaurants in the neighborhood, etc. All in all, we couldn't recommend Martina's apartment more highly, and hope to return there soon -- thank you, Martina!
My family and I loved staying in Martina's home in Providence during my sister's commencement weekend. The historic home was beautiful, and the apartment itself was very comfortable, with more than enough room for the four of us. Martina was accommodating with both timing and parking (providing spots for two cars). We were actually disappointed that we couldn't spend more time in the apartment and would be happy to stay again. Highly recommend!
Martina's b&b provided a great place for me to stay while apartment hunting in Providence. The historic building was modern and well designed. Martina also recommended some nice restaurants in the area, and offered helpful advice on the city and its neighborhoods.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à trois dans cet appartement très bien aménagé et facile à vivre.
La situation géographique de l'appartement est idéale puisqu'il est à 20 min à pieds du centre ou 10 min en bus.
Très bonne adresse que je recommande sans réserve.
Martina's apartment was spacious, aesthetically pleasing, and provided all the necessities for a weekend stay. The neighborhood is pretty cool and I enjoyed hearing the kids play and the observing the dogs walking through the park at various times. It's a quick trip to just about anywhere in Providence. My boyfriend and I brought our bicycles and had no trouble getting around from Martina's place. Highly recommended.
Martina's place is lovely and comfortable. The pictures don't do it justice. She has beautiful art and beautiful touches all over the apartment. The beds are comfortable, it is airy and bright and although it is not located where all the action is, it is nice to come back from the action to a peaceful place in front of a park.
We had an awesome time in Providence. Biked 30 miles to Bristol and enjoyed the Water Fire. Art can spur all kinds of economic development in a city, I wish people would understand the power of art. Thank you Martina for providing us with your beautiful apartment to enjoy the magic of Providence.
Martina es una muy agradable huésped. Muy educada e independiente. Se integra fácilmente a los espacios y los disfruta!
Absolutamente recomendable tenerla en casa!
