Venice - We Miss You!
Submitted: October 6, 2012
Stayed: September 2012
We have stayed in this spacious, very comfortable apartment several times and find it the ideal base to enable one to relax and enjoy a part of Venice removed from (but not far from) the hustle and bustle of the more 'touristy' areas. After a day of walking and looking, it is great to return, footsore, to one's own front door, step inside, put up one's feet - or, possibly, head straight for the garden to enjoy a cool glass of white wine whilst reviewing the day's meanderings. What bliss! The apartment is well equipped with so many thoughtful touches to make guests feel immediately at home. It has a welcoming 'feel'. Johanna and Bruce are considerate hosts and go out of their way to provide care and attention with a personal touch.
We love this peaceful corner of Venice and enjoy observing the day-to-day activities of those who live and work here - going about their business, going to school - and for a short time we are able to feel we are a small part of ordinary Venetian life. There are many good bars and restaurants catering for all tastes, as well as easy shopping, all conveniently nearby.
Thank you Johanna and Bruce, it is a treat to be able to share your home and we hope it won't be long before our next visit!

Owner's Response: It is special for us that we have become friends. I really enjoy our chats and emails about Venice (and many other things) as you know where and of whom I am talking about. Thank you for taking the new kettle out for us- I am sure everyone is pleased to have it.
