Every good thing written in reviews thus far about this apartment is true! In April my husband and I, (both of us work in visual arts), spent two wonderful weeks in this apartment. From our point of view, the following describes the apartment: Great location, tiny intimate street on the front side, large, beautiful green space and garden just for our private use on the back side. Quiet - for being in the heart of Venice, unbelievably quiet! Great central location in the Dorsoduro section of Venice just off Campo Santa Margherita and a few steps from Campo Barnaba - less than an hour's walk to any part of Venice - 15 minute walk to the train and bus stations. Clean, well equipped modern kitchen and bathroom, much larger apartment than we expected, great washing machine - the photos do not show how large nor how nice this apartment is. Lots of desk space for writing in our journals and planning the day. A computer with WiFi! Large comfortable bed and great feeling sheets and pillows. A 6 foot long comfortable couch good for sitting and naps. A great grocery store nearby as well as a man on a boat in the canal selling fresh produce. Great restaurants, bakeries, and gelato shops nearby. Caring, responsive owners that gave us their personal phone number in case we had any personal problems during our visit. We could not have asked for more! This would be a perfect place for a writer, artist or couples to spend time thinking, writing, working and/or visiting the great churches, museums, and sights of Venice. This was a great value for the money and we are already day dreaming about our next stay in the "Nice Apartment with Garden".
