Perfect apartment and a perfect host.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this great apartment. Anna was a delight. She is a native of Venice and was able to give us great sightseeing tips about the city that she is clearly passionate about. One of the days I asked her if there was any laundry detergent. Not only did she bring some by, she dropped off a delicious apple tart which we all enjoyed for dessert. The apartment is comfortable and very well equipped. The location is great, being in a quite area yet easy walking distance to sights and less than a 5 minute walk to the vaporetto.

I highly recommend this home and it's lovely, gracious host. Thank you, Anna, for everything.

Ideal location in residential environment

  • 5 of 5

The view from my bedroom window, as I woke the first morning in Venice, was like a movie setting. Wrought iron balconies, vines climbing up the weathered stucco/brick walls, clotheslines draping the day's laundry. Anna provided the best method of transportation from the airport to San Stae canal stop without a hitch. We were greeted off the dock and rolled our luggage about 5 minutes tops to the apartment. This location is perfect for venturing on foot or water transport to all the museums, historic sites, and riding down the canal and back. The kitchen was generous in size and tools as we preferred to prepare breakfast and dinner at "home" and rest our feet from miles of exploring (and shopping too!). Our bedrooms were comfortable, each with bathroom. Warm water when you needed it and a heating system (radiators) which added comfort to chilly evenings in October. Lovely hosts - thank you so much to Anna and Donato!

Fabulous apartment, Gracious host!

  • 5 of 5

Anna’s family home provided a quiet and comfortable resting place, a taste of how real Venetians live, the perfect location, and an opportunity to become friends with an energetic, passionate woman. Anna met us at the Vaparetto stop and greeted us with fresh salami, bread and wine; expecting us to need refreshments after our journey to Venice. She explained how to get around and where the grocery stores are. Anna is an enthusiastic member of Row Venice, which provides rowing lessons. When Anna volunteered to be our rowing instructor, we gained a memorable and valuable way to spend more time to spend with her, and to learn more about Venice from her native perspective. We highly recommend this apartment for its comfort, location, and, most importantly, for the good care we received and the real connection to Venice we experienced.

Great apartment near Rialto Market

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment during our vacation in Venice. I can not say enough good things about the friendly, personal service provided by Anna and her family. My wife and I stayed in this apartment with another couple, and it was excellent for several reasons. Anna was very easy to work with in booking the apartment and arranging to meet us upon arrival. She was unable to meet us personally but her husband Donato and daughter Margherita met us at the vaporetto stop and escorted us to the apartment. They showed us around the apartment, how things worked (including the Italian coffee maker) and around the neighborhood. They also recommended some great restaurants. The apartment is in an excellent location - away from the touristy areas which makes it quiet at night, but close (5 min walk) to the Rialto Mercato and San Stae vaporetto stops so it is easy to connect anywhere you want to go. The central location also makes it easy to walk anywhere on the island if that's your preference. It was the week before Easter, and Anna came by later in our stay and delivered a tiramisu that was excellent. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with a nice kitchen. We will definitely stay here again the next time we return to Venice.

Perfect Apartment for Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I promised myself I'd write reviews of hotels, tours, etc. when I left Italy and a year and a half later am finally doing it. We stayed in three apartments (in Venice, Sienna and Florence) and all were very good - but this one was great! Anna was so kind and helpful - met us at the water bus stop and escorted the four of us to the apartment. After a tour of the apartment, her husband Donato walked us to the Rialto bridge. Much appreciated! The apartment was lovely and immaculately clean. Two comfortable bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen was well appointed and contained everything we needed to make a delicious dinner from our purchases at the Rialto Market. I celebrated a BIG birthday while we were there, and Donato brought me a bottle of prosecco and some tasty cookies. I can't recommend this apartment enough. We are returning to Venice in October, and if our friends decide to travel with us, we will definitely book here.

Bel appartement en plein cœur de Venise

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, d’une semaine, dans cet appartement. Sa situation très centrale est parfaite pour rayonner dans les différents quartiers de Venise. La cuisine est très agréable avec sa vue sur un petit jardin et dispose de tous les équipements que l’on souhaite avoir dans une cuisine. L’appartement est très calme, très bien entretenu et le WIFI marche parfaitement. Un grand merci à Anna pour la qualité de ses emails (en français) avant notre arrivée et pour sa gentillesse dès son accueil à la station de vaporetto San Stae. Anna nous a raconté de nombreuses anecdotes sur Venise ce qui nous a passionné. Et que dire de ses excellents gâteaux : un régal pour nos enfants et nous-même ! Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement.

In a quiet little square in the heart of the ancient city, a short walk from the Rialto Bridge with its famous daily market, our apartment 'Gondoliera' will offer you an absolutely Venetian.

In the intrigue of alleys and squares and small channels you will find local craft shops, the big names, cafes and supermarkets, but also the 'bacari' and restaurants of Venetian cuisine.

The Santa Croce district is still densely populated by Venetians, will make you taste the real life of the city water and discover the hidden beauty of the impressive artistic and architectural heritage.

And 'possible to organize a lesson in vogue in the style of the gondoliers, on a typical Venetian boat.
