Perfect place to stay in Venice
It was wonderful that we were met at the Valporetta stop and escorted to the apartment. It was very comfortable, quiet, well equipped, good bed, and had a good A/C. The location was perfect: a few blocks from all the activity but in a very quiet place.
Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location and exactly as described. Highly recommended
We loved this apartment and it’s great location and the owners were very responsive to our queries through the booking process. It was a very nice plus to have Luca meet us at the water bus and guide us the short distance to the apartment. We explored most on Venezia from here on foot. We also tried and enjoyed the chichettis at several of the nearby Baccoro’s-very fun and delicious. We didn’t cook in at all as we really enjoyed trying all the restaurants in the neighbourhood as we felt they were reasonably priced and very good quality. The restaurants closer to San Marco can be quite a bit more expensive. The apartment is on a quiet street but only a 2-3 minute walk to the busier area with restaurants and it is only about a 10 minute walk to the train station. We would highly recommend this property to our family and friends if they were travelling to Venezia.
Excellent Apartment in Great Location
This apartment was perfect for the two of us, and is beautifully designed and well equipped. It is also in an excellent location; on a quiet side street, but a block from the major Canarregio district Main Street Strada Nova. The Ca' D'Oro palazzo/museum is literally five minutes away, as is the Ca D'Oro vaporetto (water bus) stop. This property delivers outstanding value for money. We took the Alilaguna water ferry from the airport to the Fondamente Nove stop near the apartment, were met by the rep of the owners Luca as we got off the boat, and he guided us to the apartment and familiarized us with it. It bears mention, however, that the hot water heater was not on, and Luca did not mention it, so it took us a little sleuthing to press the On button on the unit just outside the bathroom. We actually turned the hot water heater off each morning after getting cleaned up and leaving and then fired it up quickly the next morning when we needed it. The washer/dryer was also a bit of a mystery, but we managed to get a couple loads done. These are minor items, however. This was a great place to stay, with lots of light coming through the big windows, and the look and feel of a thoughtful design and attention to detail. We would definitely stay here again!
great location and apartment
We had a wonderful stay. I would highly recommend. Very nice apartment and appliances. Good water pressure, hot water, and air conditioning. Quiet and safe neighborhood near restaurants, shops and public transportation.
Clean, compact in a quiet residential backwater canal
Clean with everything you need. Recently renovated. <20 mins walk from train station and any of main sites in Venice
A Fantastic apartment...must stay when in Venice 5 out of 5!
My family (4 total, including 2 teenagers) had a fantastic stay at this apartment.
First, location: the apartment is located on a very quiet street, but only a few minutes from the main streets, restaurants, etc. We arrived at the airport after 22:00 at the airport, caught the Alilaguna (bus ferry) to a stop just 5-10 mins walk to the apartment. Since we weren't comfortable trying to find the apartment at that hour, Laura set it up to have Luca meet us at the ferry stop and he guided us to the apartment (for a small extra fee, due to the late hour)
Apartment: very modern, just like the photos. 2 rooms, the teens shared the fold out sofa and didnt complain. Plenty of towels sheets and blankets. Kitchen is small but usable (we ate out every time anyway). AC in each room works great, especially since it was 30C and humid each day. Were were there late July and lots of mosquitos outside at dusk, so bring/wear bug spray!
Master bedroom was very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious enough, and the shower was very nice. Hot water was an issue since we had 4 of us using the shower, but we spaced out our timing and had plenty. Nice to have a combo washer/dryer in the apartment too.
Everything is walking distance. St. Mark's is about 15 mins away, restaurants and grocery (called COOP) were 5 mins or less. Everything very convenient but far enough away to not have any noise impact.
The windows are shuttered on the outside, and if you keep them closed, it's really hard to keep track of the time of day. We honestly slept in our first morning until 13:00 because it was so quiet and there's no light from the outside.
Apartment is on the 1st floor up, about 15 steps up from the street. Door is the most solid door I've ever seen, you'll definately feel safe!
This apartment is in an awesome location and I would encourage anyone with up to 4 people to stay here. We loved it and would definately stay here again next time. Oh, the teens said to say the wifi is great too!
Quick tip: besides the bug spray, we're from the US and each of the people we deal with in Italy use the WhatsApp app. It's easy to use, if you're going, practice with it first so you're comfortable using it.
Ruga do Pozzi is a sunny and large calle (typical venetian street) with two peculiar wells in the middle. In ancient times, it used to be the most important meeting place in the area. As you can read in the public sign, this corner of Venice is called “Isola di Ruga do Pozzi” (Ruga do Pozzi Island) since it is enclosed by four canals: the marvellous Santa Sofia’s canal with its beautiful bridges and the taxi stop on demand, the Sant’Andrea’s canal crossed by a bridge which you can see from the apartment “Ca’ 2 pozzi”, the Dolce’s canal which you can see from “Ca’ del Canal” and a forth smaller canal.
