The NeighborhoodIt is a multi cultural neighborhood, with bakeries, convenience stores, 24 hour Walgreens, multiple restaurants (Los Andes is our favorite), also Spanish, Thai, Italian and delis to eat at. It is a working class neighborhood, with mostly single and double family houses (though the house across the street is a 6 unit building) that are owner occupied. We have a elementary, high school and Rhode Island College all within walking distance to us. It is a very safe place to go for a walk/run, walk your dog and take a bike ride. We have owned the the house since 2003, and have and continue to raise our children here. You are close to Routes 95-195 and route 10.

Uber and taxis are a convenient way to get around town. We are 15 minutes from our local airport TF Green. The #56 bus can be taken from the train station to our home. Both Newport and Boston are about 1 hour away. Other Things to NoteWe live in a busy city and there can be moments of loud noise, ie: fire station is 2 blocks away, the guest cottage is up against the street so there can be street noise. We have dogs on the property that will bark when you arrive on the property and there may be moments of barking during your stay, up to a few minutes at a time once and a while between the hours of 7am-10pm. We live on the property as well, and we love our privacy and quiet enjoyment so we do our best to create that for you. Just want to make sure that you understand that this is a city environment with basic city noises, but with all owner occupied houses in the area, people pay a lot of attention to their homes and the living environment in the neighborhood. Any question feel free to ask before you book. Our family starts our day at 6:45am each day, meaning heading to gym, feeding the dog, leaving for work etc..we do have a white noise machine as well as ear plugs avl for you if you are a light sleeper.
