AMAZING VIEW ON THE CANAL, LUXURY RESTORED APARTMENT

Santa Croce Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Luminous, elegant apartment with 2 balconies over the canal

'The Italian Job' movie has been shooted on the canal downstairs here. Very luminous and airy. The elegance of the venitian mosaic floor, the Murano glass chandeliers, the antique furniture and fabrics is joined with the modernity and functionality of the kitchen and bathrooms. The apartment was restored while the building was left in its original state. The front door opens into a grand entrance that is surrounded by four bedrooms (one master, one double and one queen with an attached studio and sofa bed), living room, kitchen and two bathrooms, one with a bathtub and one with a shower. From the balconies, you can enjoy the view of the gondolas gliding by. Air conditioned, timed with magnetic card to be paid separately, based on usage. No elevator

Perfect home for a trip to Venezia!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about this home and the owner, Luca. The home is in a wonderful location, only a couple of minutes from the train station and easy to find (because not all places are easy to find in Venice). It is also situated on a beautiful canal. The size of the home was perfect for our family of 7 (2 children ages 6 and 9) and 5 adults. We were able to cook dinner at home two nights to save a bit of money. Luca was most accommodating and helped us with anything and everything we needed. I definitely recommend staying here for your trip to Venezia!

The right place in Venice

  • 5 of 5
This apartment made our three-night stay in Venice extra special. It was quite roomy and comfortable for our party of seven. We enjoyed the air conditioning (it involved a small extra fee and was so worth it). And from the balcony we loved watching life (and gondolas) pass by on the Rio Marin canal and the sidewalk beneath us.
Luca, our host, really took care of us. He met us at the train station and led us on a five-minute jaunt over one large and one small bridge to the apartment. Once there, he spent considerable time helping orient us to Venice, telling us of the nearby market, pastry shop and bakery. He also shared the location of the best gelato in Venice (it was amazing) and gave good restaurant suggestions. He kept in touch during the week and even took time over a cappuccino to tell us a little more of his life. We couldn’t have asked for a better host.
The location worked well for us, especially getting to and from the train station and catching a vaporetto, sort of a water bus. While it is some distance to St. Mark’s Square, we easily walked there, as well as to the fish and produce markets near the Rialto Bridge.
With our purchases of fish and produce (and a great tiramisu recommended by Luca,) we enjoyed a wonderful dinner one night in the apartment. All in all, this was an excellent value and I would certainly stay there again.

Venetian Perfection

  • 5 of 5
This property is exactly what you imagine when you think of Venice. We came here with both our mothers and our baby and there was room for all. Our mothers could not believe their bedrooms actually overlooked the canal. There's even a balcony you can stand on and take pictures from. It's impeccably clean and the kitchens and bathrooms have been remodelled and our modern.

To catch our plane to leave we needed to leave at 4:20 am. Luca arranged for a water taxi to pick us up. We had our doubts that they would actually show up but at 4:20 on the dot it pulled right up to the canal out front. Very professional.

A great property at a central location. It's perfect for the true Venetian experience.

The view of the canal right outside the master bedroom is incredible! We were 2 families staying in this spacious apartment in a great location; walking distance to St. Marks but away from the crowds. The owner, Luca, was extremely helpful from our first correspondence to sending a thank you on our return to the U.S. It was a great experience staying here.

What a gem, this must be the best in Venice!!!

  • 5 of 5
A group of seven girls, we very much enjoyed the weekend in Luca' house. He is a star in welcoming his guests. Thank you so much! Do not hesitate to enquiry and book with confidence. A tip, the apartment is so easy to find from the train station, just five minutes walk and it has got a very convenient mini market just below!!! If you are a big party this definitely is the right place to stay. Thank you Luca

Well-appointed room-y apartment w/ canal view

  • 5 of 5
In Venice you want views, a local and out of the way neighborhood with cafes, pastry shop, bakery, etc.
You want to see the city wake up from your bedroom terrace but you dont want a noisy stay. You want a clean apartment where everything from the coffee maker to the bathroom fixtures work perfectly. And you want an honest,helpful and responsive proprietor.
Easy with this apartment overlooking one of the city's small but working canals and located off the beaten track but a stone's throw from busy Campo San Giacomo dell"Oreo, a bustling and hyper local piazza.
Easy because everything works like a charm. Easy because the apartment is clean and well organized. And you've got that dreamy view from the little balcony off the master bedroom.
What surprises is the large scale and roominess of the apartment, not easy to find in a cramped city like Venice. With 3 distinct bedrooms, large foyer, kitchen, 2 full baths (which worked perfectly; plenty of hot water and soaps), washer and immense dry rack, which you can bet we used, living room and full dining room equipped with china and fine glassware for a proper sit-down dinner, a party like ours, 2 parents and 3 athlete sons in their 20's and 30's, had room to spare!
Also exceptional is the owner, Luca. He was a dream to do business with beforehand, met us promptly at the station upon our arrival, made sure we were comfortable, gave us very helpful and delightful tips on where to go for everything from fresh bread in the morning to the best barber in the area. And of course, he personally knew all the vendors! Luca was easy to reach if we had a question and perfectly prompt to meet us at our departure and bid us farewell.
Really, a delight as a landlord and as a person!
We wished we could have stayed another week, but
beware, this apartment gets booked for good reason. And this family from San Francisco WILL be back!
Grazie mille per tutto, Luca!
