This apartment was precisely as advertised. It was perfectly located on a quiet street but central between Rialto and St. Mark's Square. The furnishings were modern and complete. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The washer and dryer worked very well and were a much needed bonus.
The dining area view of the canal and gondolas was charming and really gave us a local feel. If we ever got tired of it, we simply closed our window and shades, but that didn't happen very often.
Venice does get quite humid, and the dampness quickly entered the apartment. However, it was very easy to eliminate by setting the air conditioner to dehumidify. We were comfortable in 30 minutes.
Our hosts were wonderful. They communicated with us before we arrived, provided perfect instructions for arrival and use of all the appliances, and offered to make reservations for us if needed. They provided maps, tourism guides, and restaurant listings. We appreciate all they did and would gladly return and stay with them again. Thank you Kimberley and Andrea.
