CASA OLIVIA - OR HOW TO SPEND GREAT HOLIDAYS!

  • 5 of 5
Contact with the owner was easy, fast, very kind and with clear explanations about how to get to the location and how to retrieve the keys. Every adminstrative aspect was handled fast, smooth and easily. If you want to be near all major tourist attractions, near a central and important boat stop and are looking at the same time to be in a quiet, non touristic neighbourhood, then you should definitley stay in "Casa Olivia".

Everything went smooth and easily, the neighbours were also very kind and helpful.

The appartment itself suits perfectly a 4 person family with its two bedrooms and two bathrooms. We had most of our meals at the appartment, because it was always easy to get there end its living room gave us the possibility of having our meals together or just relaxing in this quiet neighbourhood.

The beds were comfortable and the only item we were missing is a micro wave oven which would have simplified heating beverages and left overs but I am pretty sure one will be added.

Conclusion : We spent great holidays and as I am sure we will return to Venice, I hope that by the time "Casa Olivia" will be still available! Thank you very much!

The appartment was what was described. It was well maintained. Very close to Vaparetto stop, grocery store and local restaruants. Off the beaten path but within walking distance of everything. Very happy with the appartment.

CASA OLIVIA

  • 5 of 5
We are a couple in our late sixties and found Casa Olivia a very pleasant location for our two week stay in Venice. Well away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas it was a short walk to the Rialto Bridge.
The apartment was well equipped, clean and spacious. It is on the first floor of the building with 22 steps to the door but anyone visiting Venice would need to be prepared to negotiate the steps on the many bridges. We found that it was worthwhile to buy a seven day ticket for the ACTV vaparetto water bus service as the stop at Fondamente Nova was very near the apartment and at the end of a day exploring Venice it was a relief to board a vaparetto back to base.
The caretaker Signora Rosa was very helpful and when necessary, brought her granddaughter to help with Italian to English translation. Any problems were quickly resolved. The owner Signor Rodolfo provided a clear friendly and efficient booking service and the booking was confirmed by means of a short term rental contract sbject to Venetian jurisdiction.
In short we would recommend Casa Olivia to either the fist time visitor or to those who have been in Venice previously.

JUST WHAT WE WANTED

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Casa Olivia, and would highly recommend
it. The apartment was clean, well equipped, comfortable and tastefully furnished with an interesting collection of books. We loved being in such a quiet residential
area away from the tourists but only 10 mins walk from the Grand Canal. There were good shops within easy reach and a very friendly restaurant on the waterfront. The caretaker Signora Rosa was helpful and friendly.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT AND BASE FOR A VISIT TO VENICE

  • 5 of 5
Three of us stayed in this apartment and found it an excellent base for our very first visit to Venice. It was very easy to get to from nearby main stop for the airport vaporetto, and a 10 min walk to the main tourist sites. It is just off the main tourist routes but there are plenty of shops and cafes and delightful squares nearby to relax with an espresso and watch the world go by.

All the facilities were exactly as described, with plenty of space, kitchen facilities, and nice clean towels. The core tourist areas of Venice were unpleasantly crowded and we are very pleased with our decision to stay at Casa Olivia.

A VERY NICE APARTMENT IN VENICE.

  • 5 of 5
This was a lovely apartment, and the 4 of us who stayed there found it an excellent base to see Venice from, the advantage of having the choice to cook our own meals there and save some cash.

The facilities were as described, with towels, bed linen and cooking equipment. The location was nice, because it's away from the touristy area but close to one of the water bus stops (saves walking over many bridges with luggage to get to train station or airport). There are some nice pizzerias & restaurants within a short walk!

I wouldn't recommend this place to a group/family who don't know any Italian, as trying to discuss the deposit and cleaning money would be complicated by gestures alone! The owner speaks English (and other languages listed), but it is a family who live around the corner who look after the place, and the lady who showed us the apartment, was very nice, but didn't speak any English. We would have really struggled to communicate, if one of our group hadn't known some Italian!

Owner's Response: We're happy the guests loved our apartment :) Concerning the Italian language: we normally leave a phone number of somebody speaking English, German and French. We're always reachable under that number. I'm afraid this time we forgot and I'm sorry about that. It won't happen again.

'Without streets and vehicles, the uproar of wheels, the brutality of horses, and with its little winding ways where people crowd together, where voices sound as in the corridors of a house where the human step circulates as if it skirted the angles of furniture and shoes never wear out, the place has the character of an immense collective apartment, in which Piazza San Marco is the most adorned corner'. Henry James, The Aspern Papers.
