__________

This distinctive ground-floor apartment is situated in the vibrant district of Cannaregio, near the magnificent Madonna dell’Orto church (and its handy vaporetto stop, offering a 20-min Alilaguna boat ride direct from the airport).

Handy, yet well-off the battered main tourist track, one can live amongst the locals as a local. Grab a caffè in a bustling pasticceria, shop in the open markets, or dine in one of the many colorful seafood restaurants lining the nearby Misericordia canal; check e-mail before heading out to explore the city over tea in your private garden.

The iconic, eponymous church of Madonna dell’Orto with its world famous collection of Tintoretto works is literally around the corner, as is the artist’s home where he lived for most of his life.

This is a ground-floor apartment that is *never* affected by high-water (although we supply boots in case it shows up outside). Draw screens down over open windows and mosquitoes will never be a problem.

This is the quintessential Venetian neighborhood, 'ben servito,' which means you can find anything from supermarkets, fresh markets, and shops for vino “al sfuso” and finer fare, to butchers to pasticcerie, from clothing and shoe to hardware stores, to bars and bàcari to notions and pharmacies. This area of the Cannaregio sestiere also boasts some of the best and most reasonably options for dining in Venice, with a host of cafes and eateries in the city. Of course, you’ll receive our insider’s list on arrival!

This cozy, airy apartment is handy to the Orto vaporetto stop serving Lines 4 and 5, and also to San Marcuola and the Grand Canal. Saunter to the San Sofia traghetto to be ferried to the Rialto Markets and all of San Polo, or hop the Ca d'Oro vaporetto instead.

For the actively inclined, just down the fondamenta Gasparini is the starting point for RowVenice.org Venetian rowing lessons.

Incredible Venice

  • 5 of 5

This is truly an amazing place. Quiet location makes it great for recharging after wandering the city. Incredibly convenient to transportation if you don't feel like walking. Quick ride to and from the airport. Cozy accommodations that allow for you to cook for yourself instead of going out every night if you desire. I know I will be recommending this to my friends and family should they desire to visit Venice. Absolutely top notch!

Great place to stay, away from the crowds but close enough.

  • 5 of 5

Great comfortable place to come home to after a day of exploring Venice. Quite far enough away from the crowds but close enough to some very good restaurants and just a couple of blocks to a water bus stop to get to any place in Venice. Very comfortable place loved the chase lounge chairs. We were late getting there as the train from Rome was delayed but Stefano stayed and checked us in. Nan met us for coffee and when we told her the coffee pot was not there, replaced it right away. Place had everything we needed would definitely stay there again.

Very uncomfortable and ill-equipped apartment

  • 2 of 5

After 11 years of using VRBO for our vacations, this is the first apartment that had no coffee pot, broken down Furniture in the living room and kitchen and a lack of supplies. There was one quarter roll of toilet tissue and no Kleenex available so we were forced to go out and find a store to fulfill our needs. The two couches in the living room, while beautiful antiques, were so uncomfortable that we were forced to use five or six pillows behind our backs so that we could sit and read. The depth was entirely too big. the little side chairs that were part of the kitchen and living room we're so dilapidated that we were afraid to sit on them.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful, albiet somewhat surprising, review. We are puzzled at why, if you needed something you didn't find during your stay, that you didn't let us know. We make it a point to be easily reachable by email, text or Whatsapp; we would have been happy to at least attempt to assist you in any way we could, if only we had known you had problems. You did not let us know about anything that was missing until this review. There was indeed an American coffee pot (thus the coffee filters in the cabinet), it seems someone took it without our noticing. We have now replaced it. There definitely should have been spare toilet tissue and we would have again been happy again to put that right if only we had known. The antique Empire sofas in the living room are a favorite of ours; one guest liked them so much she searched for one for herself when she returned home. They are indeed deep, that is why we include a plethora of opulent pillows for lounging and reading with your feet up. We sincerely apologize that they weren't to your liking. However, there is no 'broken down' furniture in the living room. The chairs are quite sturdy, with brocade covers; while they are not enormous we're not sure why anyone would have any fear of sitting on them. All of our guests do, as do we. It seems that Corina's Venice wasn't for you, and we are truly sorry you did not enjoy your stay there. We would like to suggest, though, that the next time there is something amiss in your lodging, to let the proprietor know during your stay so that they can at least attempt to make you more comfortable. In any case, we wish you all the best to you in your future travels.

Peaceful, convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the apartment. The area was very quiet but convenient to the vaporetto and many good restaurants. We could easily walk to the more touristed areas but escape to our little refuge.

The apartment itself was clean and very comfortable. When we ran into a problem with the hot water heater, Nan worked hard to resolve it as quickly as possible. The little garden was an extra treat.

We definitely will return!

Comfortable apartment in a natural setting.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in to be by my Cannaregio fit our expectations in every way. The apartment, located on a pleasant side Street close to a Vaporetto stop, but also within an easy 15 minute walk to the waterways and Village center, was perfect, providing a nice buffer from the excessive force crowds that gather in other parts of the city. The apartment itself was very clean and well outfitted. I The weather was brisk so we did not take advantage of the little patio off the kitchen but I'm warmer days that would have been an added treat.

Great apartment in quiet, lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the apartment! It is a quiet and beautiful spot to come 'home' to after running around the busier areas in Venice, yet close enough to the action when we found our second wind. The apartment doesn't get much natural light, but we didn't spend much time inside anyway. Only con was the shower - the shower curtain had mildew on it, and for some reason a rusty wire hanger was looped through the shower curtain rings, I guess to be used as a handle? Not sure why.

Alilaguna Arancio line offers an easy 20-minute, €15 boat ride from the airport to this extraordinarily tranquil neighborhood, just around the corner from Tintoretto's original home, his church, the luminous Madonna dell'Orto, and the Jewish Ghetto.

Saunter to the San Sofia traghetto to be ferried to the Rialto Markets and all of San Polo, or hop the Ca d'Oro vaporetto instead.
