VENETIAN HONEYMOON SUITE RIGHT ON THE GRAND CANAL

San Marco Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Description of bedroom suite: Bedroom with bathroom on the ground (Canal) floor, with two double windows directly onto the Grand Canal; the wavelets lap six feet beneath the windows! Outside the very private, locked bedroom suite there is a foyer area where guests may sit and even leave luggage--next to which a Canal door opens onto a dock on the Grand Canal. At the back, a garden/courtyard and a large entrance hallway are at the disposal of guests. Please note that when owners or their friends are staying in the separate upstairs apartment (they are not always there), they will use the foyer for access to the dock and boat, and the back garden/courtyard as well. Television, wireless internet, refrigerator, microwave, electric kettle are available. There is no kitchen however or real kitchen facilities.

Description of site: the apartment is located in a Palazzo in the most exclusive area of Venice in San Marco, and faces onto the Grand Canal. A very popular family cafe-restaurant is one minute from the front gate of the Palazzo where an excellent breakfast as well as the other meals are available. While it is very practical for all communications, located two minutes between two Vaporetto stops (Sant'Angelo and San Samuele) and one minute from a traghetto stop (to cross the Canal), within three minutes to the elegant San Stefano square and ten minutes walk to the Rialto, it is well out of the tourist flow and very quiet and peaceful.

I am a novelist, half a dozen books, travelling between Paris, Venice and Panama. I also show my graphic work throughout Europe.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

I spend not just 'vacations' here but throughout the year. Venice is one of the few cities which can really be called 'unique'; beauty walks with you throughout the city. Peace, beauty, delight.

From our windows I watch Venice sail down the Grand Canal; I can hop over to almost any part of the town by boat when I so wish, as well as get out to the delightful little islands which pepper the laguna. Peaceful in the midst of a much-visited place, because our house is out of the tourist paths but in the center of everything at the same time!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I booked this suite for 3 nights in July. Our stay was perfectly comfortable. They sent out a detailed email with all instructions to reach the place conveniently which I really appreciated. When we were there, no one was living upstairs so we had the lower floor all to ourselves which was great. The highlight of this rental definitely is the private dock on the Grand Canal. It surely cant get better than that. It was the perfect spot for lazy mornings with coffee and breakfast and again in the evening for drinks and watching life on the grand canal go by. The location is great and we pretty much walked everywhere.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5
This appartment is fantastic. We were met by Venus who was extremely helpful. It is in a quiet part of Venice but close to restaurants and bars. Short walk to Rialto & San Marks Square. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching Venice pass by. The grocer on the corner has a great selection of cheeses and wine which is ideal for when you are sitting on the balcony. The room itself is medium size, but when you factor in the courtyard area and lounge/reception area, it is large. Would highly recommend this apartmetn.

The heart of the city

  • 5 of 5
This place is exactly as described. Many hours were spent outside watching the day to day life on the Grand Canal.

The location is very central with two major water bus stops close by.

There are reasonable bars and restaurants in the immediate area serving very good food.

I think in Venice you will find what you look for if you look hard enough!

Great location

My wife and I stayed in this unique room for 3 nights. You open the window and you feel as if you are in a boat on the Grand Canal. There is also a balcony to sit and enjoy some vino and watch the gondolas go by. We very much enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it!

Relaxing and European

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay. We ended up our vacation here after a 21 day cruise.

The very first evening we went out on the back porch, which is on the grand canal, to see a singing gondolier passing within feet of our porch.

We had wine and cheese every afternoon on the porch watching the activity on the canal.

The place is bigger then it looks because of the areas guest can use that are shared with the owners.

The owners were pleasant and very accommodating during our stay.

We highly recommend this unit and we will be back on our next Venice holiday.

agony and ecstasy

  • 2 of 5
location is a definite 5 star(views of grand canal from your own dock, and proximity to many wonderful restaurants and plazas...the ecstasy...the bed and its room were comfortable and delightful...oh, but then the agony...hosts were cheery and informative, albeit completely self-absorbed...but the accoutrement left much to be desired...we had to purchase our own toilet paper after 2 days, the hand held shower fixture NEVER worked (the owner actually said: "we're going out of town, theres a tool kit in some cupboard, if you could fix it, that would be great") (but that was ok, we got to shower and clean up properly on our 5th day, when we got a hotel room elsewhere, after flying to another city.
this was a truly unique place...but we cannot in good conscience recommend it even at half the price they are charging...there was warning that the owners, if at home might be in the living area of the visiting guests...and, indeed, they were there every morning before we even got up...affording not even a modicum of privacy....
venice is fantastic and almost nothing can ruin it...but we are obligated to say that we will definitely stay elsewhere on our next trip to that marvelous city.

Owner's Response: I guess one will occasionally get hypocrites for guest and it is truly surprising to have people who appear to be one thing when in fact they are the opposite. Their comments about our place made me very sad, they had seemed so sweet and each time I happened to bump into them, going in or out of the apartment they told me how they were enjoying the place and how happy they were. They stood around for ages telling me their life stories as I painted the outside hall of the house, tidied up and looked after the plants. Funny how people often attribute their own characteristics to other people such as their comment about us-- albeit that we were completely self-absorbed.
I had said that if they needed anything to just let me know. it’s amazing that they managed, in two days, to get through the two rolls of toilet paper that we left for them, and it seems so petty to now complain about lack of toilet paper, when we would gladly have supplied more.
When they saw me at the vaporetto stop, as I was leaving, they mentioned that the showerhead was clogged with hard water scale. They had already occupied the room and taken showers for three days by then and I’d had the plumber in the day before and he would have remedied it in a moment if they had told me about it earlier.
I offered to call my caretaker but they said, “It doesn’t matter we can take baths.” I said there was Viacal in the cupboard and that it would clear it in a minute and they answered again very sweetly, “It’s okay--no problem.”
Our website does mention that the garden and sitting area outside the room are common areas, in the sense that we need to pass through it get to our boat or that it joins the hall that leads to our apartment. They never for a moment treated that space as a common area-- spreading their clothes over the furniture and leaving their bottles and dirty dishes on the table and their door open even when they were out. I was glad that we didn’t have any of our friends visiting as I would have been embarrassed by the mess.
It is so disappointing and depressing to have such comments made about us and our place when we really do try to make everything as comfortable and pleasant as possible. I’m just thankful that everyone else who stayed here has been so enthusiastic about our place and have left me such wonderful compliments.
