Santa Croce Apartment Rental Photos and Description

This typical Venetian ‘Palazzetto’ is situated in the heart of Venice in the San Stae quarter. The house has a view on the canal ‘Il Rio del Tron’, where you have the pleasure of observing gondoliers. The San Stae quarter is less touristic than the central areas and it’s one of the treasures of Venice . Here you live amongst locals. In the Piazza S. Giacomo de L’ Orio, which is just around the corner, you can eat your venetian breakfast (‘ una brioche con café latte’), buy the most delicious vegetables, taste the finest local wines (don’t forget to bring your own bottle) and eat the best pizza and local (fish) specialities at the finest restaurants. Just 10 minutes from the Rialto Bridge & Rialto market and just 20 minutes from San Marco square you will enjoy unforgettable moments.

average rating of 4.8 based on 17 reviews

Quiet, clean, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This property is immaculate. It is three floors - bathroom on the first floor (where you enter) 2 bedrooms, a living room and kitchen on the main floor, and an additional bedroom on the third. The rooms are somewhat small, but that seems common for Venice. The Windows that open onto the canal are great for listening to boats and gondolas go by. Would stay again!

A place we will want to visit again

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were accommodating of our travel plans, and responded promptly to our inquiries. The apartment was wonderful, exactly as described, and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. It's a great location for maneuvering around the city, near a grocery, good restaurants and other food. We enjoyed hearing the gondoliers go right beneath our windows.

Wonderful apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was exactly as advertised-clean and well-appointed. We were greeted as we got off of the water bus and taken to the apartment, which was greatly appreciated. The location was perfect-quiet, yet centralized. We loved watching the gondoliers under the window. While the rooms are small, we had more than enough space for our family of five. I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again!

Nice home, exceptional host

  • 5 of 5

The property is as advertised - clean, well appointed, cozy (or "small" depending your perspective). It's like borrowing your friend's vacation home in Venice- which is good for 4 stars. Nicoletta, who assists with the property, is exceptional, kicking it up a notch to 5 stars.

Ground floor is an entry area plus a full bathroom with a washer and typical European wall dryer.

Main floor (up some stairs) is small but well equipped and surprisingly well stocked kitchen with coffee maker, stove/oven, microwave, freezer/fridge, table for four. Small living room that overlooks a side canal. Two bedrooms sleep at least 4- typical hard basic mattresses. Nice full bath.

Upstairs is an "attic" space sleeps at least 4. Stairs are steep - not for young children or the elderly. There is a door to the stairs so not a hazard for toddlers staying on the main floor.

Location is excellent - a quiet corner on Venice. There is occasional boat noise from the canal- not an issue, the kids took it as a signal to look out the windows. 2 minutes to grocery, bakery, and good restaurants. Short walk to train, Rialto, etc.

We stayed in December and the heat , hot water, etc was all plenty good.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home is perfect. It is away from all of the tourists but just a short walk to the water taxi to get you everywhere you need to go. The host was very helpful about how to get to the water taxi stop and what transportation to take from the airport. The home was very clean and in a peaceful location. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. There were a total of 2 couples and one single and we never felt crammed.

Excellent! Beautiful! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this wonderful apartment in Venice. Clara, the owner, was very helpful and responsive as we made the reservation. And, Nicoletta, the manager, arranged to help meet us on arrival and departure. When we arrived in Venice earlier than expected, Nicoletta even helped us get in the apartment early! It is well stocked. Our family of four has been travelling around the world for more than three months, and this was the best equipped apartment we have encountered. The kitchen had spices to help us cook, and the dishes and pans were excellent. We are cooking for ourselves to help with costs, and this was a great bonus. The Internet was the best connection we have encountered, which is very helpful as we need to be in touch with people and keep business going while on the road. The location was perfect for us -- a quiet area close enough to walk to St. Mark's Square but well away from the tourists and crowds. A well stocked market was close by also. Overall, this was perfect!
