Beautiful Apartment!

I stayed in this apartment with a group of 4 girls for Carnevale and it was absolutely perfect for us. It was well located near the center of town, extremely clean, well-supplied with blankets, towels, and kitchen supplies, and very spacious. It is very bright and open with nice large windows, and from one of them you can see the bell tower from Piazza San Marco. It is well-designed and very beautiful, and the beds and furniture were very comfortable. The girl who met us and showed us to the apartment, Erica, was also extremely helpful, having provided a map of Venice and answered all of our questions we had about the city. The apartment is clearly very well managed and very reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful penthouse!

It looked exactly like the photos. Was cute and clean. Ericka was helpful and on-time meeting us. She gave us a map and pointed out good restaurants and stores. That was really nice. It is a GREAT location, close to St. Marks Square and shopping. We celebrated New Years at St. Marks Square & watched fireworks from out of the windows. We really enjoyed it. Could have used a microwave and perhaps a few English movies for the TV. But other than that, it was wonderful! Stairs did get a little tiresome though.

Adequate apartment

Pros: Good location, spacious, well stocked kitchen but no microwave, quiet with the exception of being able to hear all of the bells since you are up high, Erika is very friendly and helpful
Cons: Very low water pressure (like bathing in a puddle), extremely uncomfortable beds (the sleeper sofa is terrible), in need of repairs (broken window, peeling paint in the bathroom, light bulbs burned out), very dark entryway courtyard (bring a flashlight), no view, difficult to navigate around beams if you are tall

Very pleasant

Erica the young charming lady was right on time to see us at the water taxi stand/stop. After a very short walk through one or two straight (Venice-style) lanes we got to the house and had to climb about 70 steps up to the apartment (and another 10 steps inside the apartment to the living area). If you do have knee problems keep this in mind especially many places to visit and see in Venice would have even more steps to conquer.

The apartment is high up so very airy and away from the bad smell from the canals. Lovely to hear church bells in the morning. While we stayed there the man next door was renovating his place so it was annoying, noisy and dusty (we had to keep the window near the dinning table closed). The window in the kitchen was broken!

Kids loved the fast WIFI. Cable TV was a bit tricky to work out especially with several remotes to work with. The washing machine was really handy to have and you can cook and cook and cook with the well-equiped kitchen and provided utensils.

If you return late (after dark) make sure you have a mobile phone or a torch as it is absolutely pitch dark and difficult to find the light switch. Maybe the owner should install a sensor light or something similar.

Camilla was very prompt with email replies and Erica gave interesting details of where to go, what to do and eat (we tried as many of them as we could and loved them). Thanking you both.

Very close, lovely and convenient. Would stay here again for sure.

Great Location and Beautiful Apartment

This was a great apartment in a fantastic location. Very comfortable for the just my wife and I but could support 4 very comfortably. It was wonderful waking up to the singing gondoliers and hearing the bell from San Marco. Erica who manages the property gave us awesome recommendations on restaurants and things to see in Venice. She really knows how to find the best food in Venice, so listen to her.

WiFi internet connection worked great once you realized the password on the tip sheet the owner left was showing all caps when the password was not all caps. Figured it out though.

The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and cookware so doing a dinner in is easy and fun. One of the two under-counter fridges was not working but since there were just two of us, it was not a problem.

Only drawback was the shower head in the shower was broken when we got there, but we just used the head from the shower wand for the tub. Didn't need the tub anyways.

Would highly recommend this location. It was a bit of a splurge for us but totally worth it for the ambiance, comfort and views.
