My name is Veronica and I work at the Ca ‘Foscari University of Venice. I live on the Lido, a narrow, green island lined with beaches across the Venice lagoon, separating it from the Adriatic sea, with my daughters Matilde and Isotta. For more than 15 years I lived just around the corner from Casa Veronica, so I know all the secrets of the area!
Veronica purchased this apartment in 1970
The owner of the house was the husband of my mother, Daniela. I lived there for more than 20 years. After the marriage with my mother the apartment was rented for several years by a friend, but we have now decided to rent it for short periods. As such, we also have the opportunity to participate in home exchanges. We love traveling and meeting people from different countries. If you are interested, please e-mail us for information
Casa Veronica was recommended to us by a friend and we would definately stay there again! We stayed for 3 nights in early January and it was everything we needed!
Dealing with Veronica by email was very easy as was meeting her upon our arrival in Venice. We really appreciated being able to check in early and check out late to accommodate our flight times. Obviously this perk is dependent on other bookings, but Veronica is able to provide details about a left luggage store in town if this is not possible.
The apartment is well located, light and airy, very clean, tastefully furnished, and the biscuits and fruit on arrival were a nice touch!. One daughetr slept on the sofa bed - she said it was very comfortable.
Veronica was a wealth of information about things to see and do in Venice, where to eat, how to get around etc etc. The apartment is on the first floor (no lift), but we did not find this a problem.
Wish we had stayed longer! This was one of the three best apartments we stayed in throughout Europe! Loved it!!
We had great communication with the owner and her staff. Even though we arrived a little over an hour early we were met at the waterbus stop in a timely, friendly fashion and took the short walk to the apartment. The young lady who checked us in took the time to go over all the amenities and to get us settled in. She also advised our teenaged boys on where they might be able to hang out with others their age in the evenings. The apartment was well stocked with coffee, sugar, and some basic essentials. The sole shortcoming was that the bathroom is a little small, but, we managed. The apartment itself is up one set of outdoor stairs in the courtyard. We seldom heard and never saw our neighbors.
The location is great. A very short walk to Rialto Bridge but still quiet. All of Italy was in a heatwave and it was very hot. The apartment doesn't have aircon, but we managed OK with open windows and fans.
There are some great restaurants nearby, even an acceptably good Indian restaurant for those late in the vacation who may be tiring of pasta. Staying in the heart Venice was wonderful as you almost have it to yourself in the early moring and in the evening/night.
We liked the apartment in general but it was not a great welcome and the apartment was not prepared for arrival as we have experienced with other apartments, ie. coffee, tea, milk, a snack, dish washing soap. It has an extremely uncomfortable double mattress that gave us pains. It sure would be nice to have a nice pillow top mattress or topper. We had to wait nearly 30 minutes at the waterbus drop off as no one showed up to greet us even though we called from the airport. An old man neighbor yelled at our 13 year old son when he was in the stairwell going down to let us in from the outside door and that terrified him for the rest of our stay. There is nothing much to look at out the apartment windows. It was a quiet part of town about a 10 minute walk from busy tourist areas.
We had a pleasant stay at Casa Veronica, there's plenty of room, airy and light filled.
We booked this apartment based on good reviews, in particular the welcome from Veronica, however now I think a greeting agency meets the tenants. We were met by Alisa who was very nice, allowed us to arrive a bit early and took the time to explain everything required, Alisas English also is excellent, which is really helpful.
After a six week holiday in Europe, we found the best apartments by far we were met by the owners, who seemed to make a big difference with the presentation, care and genuine pleasure they took in looking after my family, I guess just apersonal touch really. No criticism to Casa Veronica, just an observation.
We liked this apartment. It is on the first floor but be prepared for the stairs as there are quite a few. The apartment is clean and airy and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is good. Although we didn't find the ingredients for a continental breakfast we were grateful for the milk and traditional Venetian biscuits that were provided on arrival. Veronica's representative met us at the vaporetto and I guess we were running a bit late so that might explain her lack of empathy for us weary travelers. Dealing with us appeared to be a bit of a chore for her. That is really our only grumble about this apartment. Otherwise we highly recommend it.
