WE RETURNED

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely, clean, light and well-equipped apartment in a super location. We could walk to The Frari, Santa Margharita and all of the neighborhood. The San Rocco Scuola is nearby, as is Santa Margherita square with its lovely spots to sit, have a coffee, lunch. Gelato at Mille Voglie (you can have a nice pannini before, at the next window). Zucca is a terrific place to eat as is the trattoria across the canal (Ponte Meglie I think). But what was wonderful for us -- we looked forward each night to coming home, sauteeing some fish and watching and hearing the life of the canals right in front of us. The apartment is lovely, very light, sleek, with a very functional well-equipped kitchen and the biggest fridge in Europe. It is very quiet when you close the windows too. Then what we all fear -- a medical emergency in a foreign country. I woke up with toothache tht would not stop. We tod Sebastiano and he made an appointment with his own dentist for me. i had to have an extraction and this kind, lovely man was with us every step of the way, including accompanying us to the pharmacia. Bravo Sebastiano. We will be back for another month next year and this time hope there is no other "emergency." Your kindness is exquisite and so appreciated by us. Ciao a dopo.

Listed as a "BEAUTIFUL GAFFARO APARTMENT IN DORSODURO WITH CANAL VIEW" accurately describes what is offered. My wife & I had a wonderful 4 day visit to Venice (March 2014) and coming back to this apartment after a long day was definitely a highlight. Located in the quieter part of Venice and close to the train & bus stops helped in our decision to rent this property. Sebastiano met us at the time agreed to and offered excellent advice. As other reviewers have noted the apartment is modern, was very clean and also very secure.

BEAUTIFUL PIED-À-TERRE TO VISIT VENICE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this apartment for only three days but could have stayed much, much longer! Loved the location, right on a canal, with a pretty view from the window. Very modern apartment, beautiful kitchen, nice shower, comfortable bed, excellent and responsive service and advice from Sebastiano. The apartment was spotless. The location in Dorsoduro is about five minutes walk from the train station. (Tip: get a porter if you have heavy bags, because you have to go over 2-3 bridges with stairs to get there.)
We walked everywhere or used the vaporetto. We noticed some areas were very busy and crowded ex. San Marco Piazza, so we really appreciated the quiet location of this apartment. Just the lovely sounds of people talking as they walked by, and a few boats leisurely going by on the canal...loved sitting at that window watching the world go by...loved Venezia....we highly recommend this property.

WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT?

  • 5 of 5
All the positive reviews led us to this property and we're glad they did! This was the perfect home away during our several days in Venice for several reasons. First, Sebastiano is the perfect host -- friendly and informative from the moment we met him at the apartment to get settled. His suggestions for restaurants, a favorite bakery and walking routes were perfect. He also quickly responded to a couple questions we had during our stay.

Second, the apartment itself is extremely attractive and comfy -- spotless, well-designed and filled with Sebastiano's careful attention to details. The kitchen is fantastic. We always like to alternate restaurants with cooking at home -- particularly when there are great local products --- and this kitchen had everything and more than we have at home. My spouse came down with a bad cold at the start of the stay and couldn't do much touring at all. Anywhere else, that would have been a huge disappointment. But the superb canal views, people-watching, all the comforts and nearby stores and pharmacies compensated a good deal. As he quips, if one has to nurse a cold while in Venice, this is the place to do it!

Finally, the location itself is ideal. We loved the feel of being in a semi-residential area but still easily walkable to the major venues. Besides, much of the Venice's charm (for us) is in roaming the meandering streets, passageways and bridges apart from the crowds so this spot was perfect. What more can we say? We loved our time here and plan to return. Thanks, Sebastiano.

What a great location in Venice. The apartment was lovely and clean. The owner was always on hand via email or text when we were travelling and it was one of the most memorable locations in our trip.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT IN A PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a fantastic time at the "Gaffaro" apt. The apartment was beautiful with all the comforts of home. Everything in the apartment was very clean, modern and beautiful. Even the bathroom had heated floors!! The kitchen was perfect for us. It had all the pots,pans, dishes, etc. that we needed. It was nice to come home in the evening, cook a nice dinner, and have a glass of the local wine!! The apartment also had a washing machine and a drying rack!! Very nice!! We especially liked to sit in the morning with our coffee and look out the window overlooking the beautiful canal. What a beautiful view! The bedroom was a good size with lots of closet space to hang your clothes! The bed is very comfortable! When we arrived at the apt., we were met by Sebastiano's sister who was very friendly and helpful. She told us where the local supermarket was (5 min.).. as well as favorite restaurants to go to! Although we did not meet Sebastiano, he was always available by email. Thank you, Sebastiano, for the delicious wine!! What a delight to find such a wonderful welcome gift!!
The location of the apartment is perfect! We walked everywhere. Sebastiano had books, maps and other information at the apartment to help with all the sights to see in Venice! Very helpful!! Our favorite piazza to go for an afternoon "spritz" was the Piazza Santa Margherita! (ten minute walk). You are close to the train station (5 min.) St. Mark's square is a good walk (30 min) but the walk is so delightful walking thru all the little streets...that you lose all track of time....just enjoying the sights!
Sebastiano made it very easy for us to rent his apartment...if we had any questions before we arrived...he answered promptly by email. We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and relatives! We plan to go back to the "Gaffaro" apartment on our next visit to Venice!!
