Fantastic rental experience

  • 5 of 5
Like other visitors before us, we would highly recommend this apartment to others: honest and helpful host - thank you, Cristina for your welcome and useful advice; easy location to get to with big, heavy suitcases as the apartment is only metres from the vaporetto stop (I can only imagine how hard it would be to drag suitcases through narrow alleyways and over canal bridges!); quiet and non-touristy location - this also means the vaporettos are a lot less crowded here than around the Grand Canal; lovely views over the lagoon towards the other islands - would recommend a visit to Murano/Burano if time allows; all the amenities you need including breakfast and basic food items; clean; easy access to all the sights by water or on foot. We had a wonderful 5 days in Venice and enjoyed coming back to our apartment at the end of each amazing day. Thanks again, Cristina.

nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Nice, clean apartment with window screens to keep out most of the mosquitos. Staying in a neighbourhood was nice and gave a small idea of what Venice might be like for locals. There are lots of shops nearby for everything you need. Would definitely recommend staying here. As with other reviewers, we were nervous about the deposit but it worked out fine.

Great stay in a wonderful flat !

  • 5 of 5
Venice was our last stop on a multi city tour of Italy. While we had booked the apartment 3 months early, I was, like others, nervous wiring a deposit and stressed about what was waiting for us in Venice. Upon our arrival at the train station, I called Cristina, the owner, and from that point on everything was simply amazing !!! I have to agree with every single positive comment made by other reviewers here. I will not repeat all of them, but will try to offer additional insight:

- Cristina is a wonderful hostess. Using a little English, Italian and French we were able to communicate. She was very attentive to detail and provided us with shopping / restaurant recommendations and stocked the refrigerator with coffee, juice, milk, water and breakfast pastries.
- The apartment is kept exceptionally clean, cozy, well equipped and pride of ownership reigns.
- The apartment is NOT in a touristy district. Which makes it great !!! You will live with resident Venetians, walk the side streets and not really run into tourists until you get in the San Marco area. You will feel like you are thousands of miles away from a tourist destination - yet just a short walk away from it all !
- Its a quiet neighborhood and you will get a great night's sleep !
- The apartment is an easy 5 - 10 minute walk to San Marco - however, do expect to get lost - but it's Venice, you're on an island .... how lost can you get ? This is one of the joys of exploring the city !!

I would definitely recommend this flat to friends, and should we return to Venice would stay there again ! Thank you Cristina for being such a wonderful host !!

Perfetto

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was just as nice as the pictures. We enjoyed being away from all the other tourist and exploring the different ways we could find to walk to St. Mark's Square. It was also so convenient to the water bus(taxi). The added surprise was waking up to a beautiful mountain view. Highly recommend this clean, cozy apartment. The owner is a pleasure to work with. We were nervous wiring a deposit, but it all worked out great. Highly recommend.

Hidden gem with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5
This flat is a real treasure, very clean, neat, quiet, comfortable and well-equipped with everything you need, in a location away from the tourist madness of Rialto-San Marco but still within easy walking distance to all major sights. It could not be easier or more enjoyable to reach the flat from the train station. Vaporetto 5.2 goes all the way. You just step off at Celestia and you are there.

Cristina is a wonderful host and meets you right at the vaporetto stop. She provides many recommendations for places to eat and to buy your groceries, and shows you how everything works in the flat. She is available by email or phone if you have any problems or questions.

The neighbourhood is very safe. My daughter and I walked back from the San Marco area twice late in the evening and had no issues.

Do get the multi-day vaporetto pass, it is well worth it especially if you plan to go out to the islands, but don’t miss the opportunity to walk a lot as well. Nothing is far away, you will never get really lost (just momentarily off track) and you will discover many places and vistas you might otherwise miss.

I would definitely recommend this flat to friends, and will look forward to staying here again next time.

Quiet, Clean, Friendly Neighboorhood Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We loved this apartment with its view of the lagoon and a few steps from the vaporetto stop. A very safe, quiet area.
It was clean, quiet and very comfortable apartment. The kitchen was equipped with everything you'll need. Christian even had milk, juice and pastries waiting for us. If you have been traveling for a while, the in-kitchen clothes washer was most welcome!
Christian,who speaks English, was a pleasure to work with. She met with us as scheduled, and answered all of our questions and gave us suggestions.
It is located in a very quiet neighborhood, away from the crowds.
Just a few blocks in, you'll find a vegetable stand, wine store and small shops with everything you need.Plus a restaurant that is not to be missed, filled with locals and travelers.
Highly recommended !
