Overview

San Polo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + 1 bedroom in the loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Casa Stella is located on first and second floor of a 17th century building and it’s really bright and sunny. It’s approx. 80 sq. meters, recently restored and offers a lovely views in a quiet little square (Venetian campo).

From the kitchen, situated on the first floor, a staircase leads up to an open living room area. In this elegant room, with terrazzo veneziano and oak-beamed ceiling, you will find two very comfortable sofas, a dining table, a DVD player and the TV set. The master bedroom offers a king size bed along with a closet and a dresser. It’s very peaceful and quiet. Five steps will take you to the second bedroom where you will find two twin beds: it's like a loft that overlooks the living room. The kitchen is newly installed and fully equipped: you will find microwave, cookware & kitchen utensils, cooker, electric kettle, toaster, coffee maker and anything else you may need to enjoy your stay! In the bathroom, full of light and beautifully decorated, you’ll find a bath-tub that you can also use as a shower and the washing machine.

The house is very comfortable, having WIFI internet (the new modem ensures high speed reliable internet connection), air-conditioning and independent heating.

The location of Casa Stella is great.

Right outside the house, you will find the Canal Grande with its beautiful, ancient buildings, campo dei Frari with its typical pasticcerie and one of the most beautiful churches in town.

In the neighborhood you’ll find all the typical Venetian stores you expect to discover in Venice: bakeries, fruit & vegetables little stores, fresh fish and meat. This is one of the areas where Venetians still live, go to school, play with kids, hang laundry outside the windows and take care of day-by-day activities. Thanks to this, you’ll also be able to choose between good trattorie (typical low-cost restaurants), pizzerie and bars where to have a spritz (Venetian aperitivo) and cicchetti (warm and hot finger food to take with Prosecco or a glass of local Cabernet).

On foot, it will take you 15 minutes walk to reach Piazza San Marco.

Does not live up to description - Dingy at best!

  • 1 of 5

Our 1 star review is based on comparisons to our much less expensive VRBO stays in Rome and Florence, both of which we gave 5 stars. This apartment is far from luxury which is misleading in their title. It is comparable to an American fraternity house at best. There is no decor of any kind and zero ambiance. It does provide a lot of space to spread out but it needs a complete paint job as well as mold removal in the bathroom. The furniture is typical garage sale quality in the US, and the curtains are cheap and stained. It was quite disappointing. The owners of this VRBO were the only ones to NOT ask for a review which must mean something. This is not for a romantic get-away or special visit to Venice. It really set a negative tone for our few days in Venice. I will end with the very few positives - the location was relatively quiet and central, someone (other than the owner who we never heard from) met us and walked us to the apartment, and it had a very small clothes washer.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I’m very sorry you had such a disappointing stay at Casa Stella. I am quite surprised you never contacted me during your stay as, if you read previous guests’ feed-backs, it seems I am “very caring and responsive”…. Sorry also to hear you had such a bad overall impression about the house. The building and the house itself are very ancient. They have been restored carefully and the paint you don’t like on the walls is named SPATOLATO, a very sophisticated finishing which is very typical but not so common, due to its high cost. I will take your impressions as an advice to improve service and comfort in the house. On the other side, I will keep not asking for travelers feed-backs as I feel that reviews have to be spontaneous to keep this system trustworthy, even when they are so different one from the other!

Our Spring Break in Venezia

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this apartment! It was comfortable and centrally located. Very close to Grand Canal and within walking distance of all major attractions. Excellent places to eat very close by. Close to groceries. You could hear the bells from the churches ringing beautifully. The owners were very caring and responsive to all our questions. Definitely recommend this apartment to anyone!

Good location, amazing value

  • 5 of 5

My wife, four children and I stayed at Casa Stella for four nights and loved it. We would recommend this apartment to almost anyone (I agree with other comments that the stairs may be difficult for those with limited mobility). Venice can be quite expensive but Casa Stella made our trip much more reasonable. Carla, the owner, was fantastic to deal with, replied to our emails quickly and had Ms. Tanya meet us at the train station to take us to the apartment when we arrived. We are sorry we didn't get to meet Carla face to face, she seems delightful. The apartment was located in a quiet neighbourhood, which was important to us, but not far from anything. And there were no surprises, everything in the apartment worked and we had hot water and wifi the entire time. We all had a wonderful time in Venice largely thanks to Casa Stella.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean, comfortable place to stay. We were 2 adults, 3 teens. We were originally planning to stay in another apartment owned by the same family and due to scaffolding/construction were offered two others and chose this. We felt really well taken care of and appreciated the heads up and all the great communication. Very pleasant family to work with. Great kitchen to cook in, very quiet, super comfortable mattresses, great internet and great location/neigborhood. Frari Church is right out the door and in same square you have gelato (Grom and another-both excellent), coffee, pizza and lots of great dining close by and Billa (grocery store) right around another corner!

All round, this place is great!

  • 5 of 5

The six of us stayed in Casa Stella and found everything great: the apartment is clean, the location is excellent, the hosts very helpful. The apartment is really unique, even quirky! A lot of our conversation centred around the exposed beams and the difficulty of building things in Venice, esp getting materials down narrow laneways.

Holidays should be about experiencing new things - not more of what we get at home.

We would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful place to stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisting of two parents and four children had the most wonderful, comfortable stay in this apartment. It contained everything that we needed and more!! There were lots of little touches which made it feel like home for us. We were exhausted after our flight from Australia and the beds were very comfortable. The location was lovely & quiet. We left a special book at the apartment by accident when we left and Carla kindly posted it back to us in Australia. We would highly recommend anyone to stay in this great apartment.
