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 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

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

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!

The Perfect Place for Venice

Seven of us arrived by train from Florence. At the Train Station, Luca picked us up and took us for the apartment. As he warned, the apartment is located on the top of the building overlooking a quiet canal without an elevator. We traveled with a few people in there 60s and 70s which had no issue taking their time up the stairs. Luca also rolled up his sleeves and helped carry two large suitcases.

As we arrived early, the maid was still cleaning. He showed us around the apartment and mapped out some of his favorite restaurants. He then walked us around the neighborhood and the best places to catch water buses and grab some necessities.

The apartment could not be anymore comfortable combining the history of the building with some modern upgrades including air conditioning. It was easy to get to and from the water bus station, the bus station to the airport, and the train station. Luca makes you feel right at home and offers his personal phone number to call for any suggestions or assistance with booking anything you want to join. Words cannot describe the hospitality he provides.

Do not pass up the opportunity to stay here and meet Luca. I guarantee that you cannot go wrong.

Thank you for the wonderful stay! - Szoke and Nexsen Family

The apartment was every bit as elegant as the photos show. We came to Venice to get married and stayed in the apartment with 3 other friends (5 in total). It was a perfect choice for us. the apartment is very spacious, well appointed and luxurious, perfect for our wedding week. Luca met us at the train station, he was so friendly, kind and helped settle us in. He has excellent English and communicated very promptly regarding all the arrangements. The location is close to the train station in a residential area, so not so busy, but lovely cafes and small restaurants close by. Also it was close to all the water transport and water taxi can pull up right outside. We highly recommend this apartment to those wanting to add something special to their visit to Venice. Thanks Luca for your care and friendliness.

We were a group of 6 and we loved this property. Luca was very easy to deal with, spoke very good English, and was very helpful when we arrived (2 hours late due to travel difficulties). He met us at the train station and had a porter for our luggage. He also arranged a private water taxi to the airport for our departure morning. The property is spacious and conveniently located to the train station and water transport. I was the one who arranged for this property and was apprehensive that everything would go smoothly and be as advertised. I relied on all the positive reviews and was not disappointed in any way.

Luxury apartment in the historical center in a good position to visit the city. Complete restoration in 2009 with two balconies over looking the canal. A few minutes from the train station and Piazzale Roma (bus terminal). Close to the Grand Canal, Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio, the Frari Church, the School of San Rocco and Rialto Bridge. The apartment is in Santa Croce, an interesting area of Venice with 'bacari' and small typical restaurants. Air conditioning
