About Serena

I was born in Venice in 1972, I've a degree in pharmacy and two kids. After working for 12 years in pharmacy, I started this business of management of the family property, as it is a dynamic work and gives you the opportunity to meet people from all over the world.

Why Serena chose Venice city center

This property lends itself well to stay calm despite being in the city center, offers a glimpse of peace and serenity away from the tour groups that fill up the city. Completely renovated, offers antique furniture and a lovely terrance with pergola.

What makes this house unique

It's a building with unique entrance, surrounded by antique stores a few steps from Gran Canal. Great location!

Great apartment, plenty of room, everything you need for a wonderful stay in Venice!

  • 5 of 5

Serena was wonderful! Quick to respond to questions pre-arrival and also on day of arrival, as our train was delayed. There were no problems at all during the rental, but I have no doubt that she would've been readily available. The apartment is in a quiet location in the center of Venice, very close to everything yet just enough off the beaten path to get a break from the crowds. From the main entrance, you walk up a set of stairs to the floor with the 2 bedrooms and the full bath. From there, up another flight of stairs to the living room, kitchen and small balcony. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed. We shopped in the Rialto market one morning, then cooked dinner in that night, a fun time! The overall experience with this apartment and host was great, and would definitely stay here again!

Comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and my 80-year-old mother-in-law recently stayed at this property, and it was just delightful. Serena was a helpful host and was very easy to work with. The water bus (vaporetto) stop is literally meters away from the building. While the neighborhood is off the beaten path, many of the major sites are easily accessible. There were terrific guidebooks at the apartment, and Serena provided us with a list of recommended restaurants. We ate at the one list as #1 (Ristorante Al Giardinetto da Severino)--it ended up being one of the best meals of our entire trip (we were in Venice, Florence, Bologna, Lucca and Sienna)! The apartment is very cozy, has a sweet outdoor patio, and was incredibly clean. If you have more than 3 people staying, 1 bathroom for all may be a challenge (for 3 people, it was just fine). Thanks so much, Serena!

Wonderful apartment in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Serena met us promptly at the vaporetto stop. The apartment was only a small walking distance which was nice after parking the car at the Tronchetto. Once in the lovely apartment she carefully covered the basic information needed for our stay. The air conditioning was a delight with the temperature already over 90 degrees outside. After a busy day dealing with crowds it was always nice to come back to our quiet home and neighborhood of San Samuele. A trip to Burano island was nice for color and a different perspective of the city. Go in the later afternoon when most of the people are returning; then you will have the island to yourself. Thanks Serena.

Unbelievable first experience with VRBO!!! Wonderful quiet location, walking distance to San Marco

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time we have rented an apartment and will do it many more times. Serena was so helpful, friendly and spoke excellent English. She supplied a map of Venice and gave us suggestions for Mini-markets for groceries and places to see and eat. Serena met us at the water bus stop, San Samuelle. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood just a block from the water bus stop. Serena also had several informational books on Venice and the area that were very helpful. The apartment is very comfortable and roomy for a family of 4, 1 bedroom with a queen bed and 1 bedroom with 2 singles. The apartment had its own entrance with the bedrooms and bath on one floor and a full kitchen, large living room and beautiful, quiet patio balcony on the floor above. All the decorations and furnishings were in beautiful Venetian style. Kitchen was well supplied with dishes and espresso machine. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

Lovely neighborhood in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of four, ages 17-55) stayed in this lovely apartment for three nights in July 2016. It is a as depicted in the photos, and Serena and her associate are very helpful and communicative. Thank you for everything!

Big plusses for this apartment:

+ close to San Samuele vaporetto stop (means not far to drag suitcases!!)

+ quiet neighborhood with artsy shops

+ easy walks to the major sites in Venice (Rialto, San Marco, Guggenheim, Accademia)

+ outdoor patio for any at home meals

+ air conditioning

+ well supplied kitchen, including a bottle of Prosecco

+ clean and spacious

+ has a dish washer and washing machine (although it ceased working during our stay, for which Serena was very apologetic)

+ attractive decor and good wifi

+ easy/prompt communication with Serena

My stay from June 10-12 2016

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 including a 8 and 10 yr old that stayed here. The apartment has been renovated, is very spacious, clean, with a modern kitchen and bathroom and is beautifully decorated. It has the charm of a Venetian house with fabrics and exposed ceiling wood beams.The house is split across 2 levels. We arrived very late (around 10:30PM ) in Venice but Sareena had ensured that her property manager was there to meet us at the Veparetto stop and walk us to the apartment as it can get confusing at night if you do not know the streets. Here she gave us all the information we had requested and a great orientation of Venice on a map which was super helpful in planning our daily activities.

In addition, the apartment had plenty of towels, AC in every room and excellent coffee and a high bandwidth WiFi!!

The apartment is about a 10-15 minute easy walk to San Marco, Dodges Palace, Rialto bridge and about a 30 second walk to the closest Veparetto stop. Everything in the property description is accurate.

Sareena was very accommodating by storing our luggage for a few hours after the check out time as we had a late train out of Venice. She was very prompt in responding to all my questions that helped me plan my visit.

Everything was delivered as promised. We were very pleased with our stay and I would highly recommend this property!

Samuele apartment is located in San Marco district, close to Campo Santo Stefano, Campo San Samuele a few steps from the Grand Canal and Sam Samuele boat stop. Central location, very quiet and peaceful, quickly you can walk and reach Accademia bridge, with its stunning views and the nearby galleries, Salute church and Peggy Guggenheim foundation; St. Mark's Square is a 10-minute foot, crossing Campo Santo Stefano, Campo San Maurizio and Via XXII Marzo, one of the most exclusive street for shopping.

So despite being in the heart of the city, you will enjoy peace and tranquility unusual for a tourist destination like Venice, away from the currents of a guided tour. There are many small restaurants and cafes, antique shops and a small supermarket.
