A Wonderful Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment in the Castello district of Venice. It is away from the popular and very crowded areas such as Rialto and San Marco, but they can be reached within a 10-15 minute walk and walking is what Venice is all about. We felt that we were able to immerse ourselves into one aspect of Venetian life.

The apartment is a one floor walk-up and the vaporetto (Celestia) stops just outside the building. The one bedroom apartment is clean, well-stocked (includes a washer which we used), good-sized fridge, gas stovetop, as well as bright and airy.

We selected this place for our 2 week stay based on the views (and reviews) and they did not disappoint. There are beautiful views of Cimitero and Murano, and when not hazy, incredible views of the Dolomites. The weather was great so we were able to open the windows and enjoy the spring-like breezes from the laguna as well as the sound of the passing boats. We also experienced some incredible sunrises and sunsets.

There are 2 grocery stores (Coop and Punto) nearby but we mainly enjoyed short walks to nearby bakeries, cafes for coffee and spritz (prosecco and aperol--local drink), outdoor markets carrying regional produce, butcher, and fresh pasta shop. There are also great restaurants nearby such as Strega for pizza, Osteria alla Staffa (very small so make reservations), and for fine dining try 6234 a le Tole (2 locations nearby) and Jonny's.

Our hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. They even provided juice, milk, bottled water and breakfast items for us. My husband and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful,modern,clean apartment with a well stocked kitchen and a washer. The apartment is bright and airy with wonderful views of San Michele,Murano & Burano. We were greeted at the vaporetto stop by Cristina and given instuctions about the apt. Both Cristina and her husband are very nice and helpful. The vaporetto stop is right in front of the apartment and there are no bridges to haul your luggage over! The only stairs are to the first floor apt. The location is in a quiet non tourist area but it is still easy to get to all the attractions.

I would certainly stay here again. If you have a chance take a free walking tour of Venice.

Best place to stay when in Venice!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing 1 bedroom apartment, with beautiful views of San Michele, Murano and even Burano! The Arsenale is right next door as well as a Vaporetto station! This is a very peaceful, beautifully decorated, clean and organized apartment. Anything you'd ever need for cooking, preparing breakfast, dinner etc is provided. There's also a great washer for your clothes and a "Venetian" way to hang your clothes outside, which we loved! Shower worked great with hot water. Everything is modern in the apartment and looks very new and is very clean!

You couldn't find better owners than Cristina and her husband. They were very helpful with any questions that we had and Cristina met with us at the Vaporetto station when we first arrived and showed us all of the details of the apartment, along with some instructions on how to get around the different islands on a map.

We were very pleasantly greeted and loved our apartment for our entire stay of almost 3 weeks! The apartment is about a 10-15 min walk from Piazza San Marco and the neighborhood (Sestiere) that the apartment is in is called "Castello" which is away from the main tourist area and is in itself extremely charming. You will be staying with the true Venetian's so to speak. There's a beautiful church nearby and two grocery shopping markets. If you're able to purchase from the local vegetable and fruit stands on any of the streets you'll be passing along, I would recommend doing so for your fruits and vegetables!

The Venetians are very respectful of the time, so after 8pm-9pm, everything is very quiet in this neighborhood and you will hear the tiny waves of the water in the lagoon outside your windows along with the occasional sound of birds stopping by.

We would definitely come back again, as having this apartment be a part of our stay made our trip so much more enjoyable!

We highly recommend this apartment as it will add a wonderful touch to your Venetian stay!

We were punctually and friendly welcomed by Cristina (owner); clean, very comfortable apartment with great views of the bay facing Murano/Burano from the multiple large windows off the kitchen/living room and great sunsets and sunrises too. A short 10-15 easy walk to Piazza San Marco; quite residential area away from the noisy tourist areas. Apartment is a 1 min walk from a vaporetto station. There is a supermarket close-by (~ 5 min walk). We had a very relaxing 5 days in Venice and would happily return to this place - this is ultimately the proof of a good rating. The security deposit was promptly paid back by the owner on check-out.

Perfect Apartment Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment in an ideal location . Stunning views with a water bus stop right outside which we used to visit Murano Burano and The Lido aswell as the Grand Canal . The property was spotless and well equipped. Christina was extremely friendly and gave excellent tips on how to explore the area. Would love to return next year for a longer stay.

We agree with what everyone else has said. Cristina is the perfect landlady, and the apartment is bright, airy, and up to date. We (my wife and I, and our 7 year old son) stayed for 16 days, so we were glad to be able to do laundry. The supermarket at the Ospedale stop was very helpful, and being located right at the Celestia stop was convenient. We often walked back and forth to San Marco, Rialto, etc. (15-20 minutes) and tried to take a different path each time. We enjoyed those walks a great deal, and would not have wanted to stay any closer to the city center. We were very happy with our stay, and give Cristina and her apartment our highest recommendation.
