Guestbook comments from the manager
We found the apartment to be just perfect for our short stay in Venice. We had absolutely no problems with check-in as Marco met us at the Vaparetto and took us to the apartment. He is absolutely wonderful and very helpful with restaurant suggestions etc. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the unit also had a washing machine which was not listed on the site. We would definitely rent this apartment again and have already recommended it to friends.

TRÈS BIEN PLACÉ, PRATIQUE ET BIEN ENTRETENU

  • 5 of 5
Très agréable appartement Type 3 parfaitement placé à 2' du Rialto et son débarquadaire ( Vaporetto ligne 2 ) .
Super accueil par Bruno avec de bons conseils pour le séjour.
2 chambres agréables et plutôt calmes compte-tenu de l'hyper centralité ( Eglise San Lio ) avec supermarché et tous commerces en pied d'immeuble dont un gelatéria d'enfer !
Ascenseur petit mais très pratique. Equipement satisfaisant.
Déco agréable et mobilier fonctionnel, de bon goût.
1 salle d'eau WC + 1 WC avec lavabo dans la chambre des enfants.
Literie satisfaisante. Linge de bains en nombre et qualité satsifaisants aussi.
On a apprécié l'état gérénal très propre, le ménage de départ inclus, la remise de clef et la restitution de caution sans soucis. RDV à l'heure ce qui est appréciable. N'hésitez pas à appeler le loueur au Tel dès que vous arrivez sur Venise pour qu'il vous accueille au débarcadaire Rialto et vous guide à l'appartement à pieds en 2' valises en mains.
On apprécie enfin et surtout sa centralité car on a pu aller à pieds partout avec les enfants, du jardin de la biennale après l'Arsenal, à la fondation Pinault ou au Guggenheim du côté de la pointe de la douane, comme au Palazzio Grazzi.
La Place San Marco est à moins de 10' à pieds. Nous n'avons même pas eu à emprunter de vaporetto pendant nos 4 jours et pourtant avons visité tous les quartiers hors îles et Lido. C'est le gros plus de l'emplacement central, permettant de rentrer entre 2 ballades.

Nous reviendrons avec plaisir à Venise pour une prochaine Biennale et n'hésiterons pas à revenir dans l'un des appartements de cet immeubles ( Il y en a 3 ou 4 à priori ). Le notre était au 3ème et avant dernier étage.

On recommande sans retenue.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is in an ideal location within walking distance to all of the sights. The apartment was equiped with everything we needed and wanted for us and our two young children. The apartment was furnished with a high chair, cot and plastic cutlery.

The property was clean and well-maintained and the owner and staff provided excellent customer service.

We would definitely recommend this property to travellers with young children and even older children.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay in Venice! Marco was very helpful, coming to meet us at the ferry stop and giving us helpful tips about what to see and do and even booking a restaurant for us! The apartment was brand new, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. Also it has an elevator which is a big (unusual) plus in Venice! We were traveling with a baby and I was impressed that Marco had taken the time to provide a change mat, a crib, a high chair and plastic cutlery. A very thoughtful touch! He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The location is excellent: 2 min from Rialto bridge, 1 min from Susa (the excellent ice cream store nearby!) and under 10 min to San Marco square. Our stay was magical. I would highly recommend this place.

RED HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very enjoyable week in this appartment.

The property had been recently refurbished, I think. It was well-appointed and well-equipped and had been thoroughly cleaned. The owner provided a travel cot for our young child and kindly also lent some toys. The property was perfectly suitable for a toddler.

There were good cooking / kitchen facilities, which was important to us as we ate in most of the time (because of our child).

We found Marco Malafante to be very charming and organised, and not at all obtrusive. He met us at the Grand Canal and helped us with baggage to the property. He provided all the assistance that we could ask for but otherwise left us to ourselves.

The property is well located in the heart of Venice.

We would certainly recommend this property to friends.
