About the property

Elegant Apt, Canal View, 2 Bathrooms (Jacuzzi and Shower), 1 Huge Bedroom, 4 Pax

The apt is located in the real heart of Venice, just few minutes walking from both St Mark Square and Rialto, so it is easy to take a rest at any moment of the day if you are tired and want to have a break.

The apt is located at the first floor - just one flight of stairs (20 steps) - and overlooks a beautiful canal where gondolas have their tour, so it is not uncommon during the day to hear some singers who play venetian songs!

If you arrive to the apt from S Marco stop by public boat (line 1 or 2) , you will not have to cross any bridge with your luggage, it is a short (few minutes) and plain walk.

If you prefer to stop at Rialto, you will cut your ride of around 20 min , but you will have to cross one bridge.

The apt has just been restored ( June 2015 ). The entrance is large with a modern fireplace, then you enter a comfortable ... and then again a spacious dining room, connected to the fully equipped kitchen.

The bedroom is huge with a king size bed ( but it can be separated in two big single beds), and it provides two other sofa-beds.

The two bathrooms are really comfortable, one with shower and the other with jacuzzi.

You will be met at the boat stop from someone of the family, who will bring you to the apt , and provide you a map giving all the information you need about museums, exhibitions, restaurants, supermarkets..

Beatiful Place to stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

There place was just perfect. It was very roomy and Modern, with two full Bathrooms and a Full Kitchen. The Location was Amazing, close to everything that you would want to see in Venice, just a 5 min walk to San Marcos Square. I think for us one of the Highlights of there place is that it is right on the Canal and there are signers that go buy the window in Gondolas and also play music. You can just open up the windows watch and Listen, pretty cool. Leonardo and his wife were perfect hosts. They were there when we arrived, walked us through the place, and were very helpful with where to go around Venice. So that's why I give this place 5 stars, one of the best places I've ever stayed in through VRBO. Thanks so much!!!

Gorgeous Apartment and a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Venice was fantastic in large part due to the fantastic apartment we stayed in. The location was right next to all the famous sites, and the hostess Roberta was absolutely fantastic and so helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here and we would absolutely go back and stay there.

The Very Best in the Heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this beautiful apartment in the heart of San Marco. Elegantly decorated, close to the action yet enough distance between the unit and the craziness of SM square. Modern touches throughout! Quiet and air conditioned. We went out everyday and walked for hours and we were always close enough to get back to the unit to cool down before dinner and more exploring in the evening. We are a couple with a 4 year old and Mother in Law in tow (3 adults and a child) and had plenty of space & bedding. As other reviews have stated, Leonardo and Roberta are the very best hosts your could hope for. They welcome you personally at the boat, which is a big deal because Venice can be very overwhelming and disorienting when you first arrive. They give you the quick tour and point out various points of interest as you weave your way to the apartment several blocks from the water taxi drop off. They even take the time to set you up with instructions on appliances, give you their recommendations for dining/tourist related activities, and many other valuable pieces of information that help to get you settled. They even took the time to walk us to dinner the first night when we were tired and hungry from our travels. We rented from Roberta and Leonardo because we liked the location and the vibe of an Italian family welcoming us home. This is exactly what we got. You can overpay for a bed and a small room at the many hotels, or you can experience a taste of Venetian elegance as though you were one of the family. We can't say enough about the location. Right on one of the canals, you're constantly entertained by the Gondolas and water taxis passing under your windows. The unit is stocked with literally everything you need, they even stocked us up with a few refreshments to get us started. For a family traveling with a 4 year old they even ran to get us some milk knowing it'd be hard to find at the late hour we arrived. If you're weighing various options and overwhelmed with your choices... stop your search now and book this unit, you won't regret it!

A beautiful apartment, well appointed, super clean and very quiet. Perfect location off St. Marks Square and all of Venice. The Host and Hostess were wonderful. Very informative of the area, great recommendations of sites and restaurants. Especially wonderful, was that there was a bakery, pastry, fresh fruit stand, meat, cheese and wine store all located next to each other just a block or so from the apartment. Made for great shopping to enjoy fresh local foods of Venice and Italy. Upon return to Venice, we would with a doubt return.
