PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou Marco - a perfect choice for a wonderful Venice stay. The apartment is beautiful - the nicest we stayed in our whole european trip ! Great lounge area - cable TV, lovely kitchen, gorgeous bathrooms, comfortable beds and internet access.

We found the location to be outstanding - close to a vaporetto stop but in a quiet alley off a lovely quiet piazza - a stones throw from a lovely delicatessen and some quality restaurants. An easy walk walk to either Rialto bridge or St Marks Square.

A hard to please 16 year old disliked London and Paris, but fell in love with Venice - boosted by the "cool" apartment.

We have recommended the apartment to many friends and all - hope to return some day

Owner's Response: It has been a pleasure to have you as guests and we are so happy to read that you have valued so much "The Red House". My wife and I have put so much effort to make it look and feel as different and more comfortable as possible to whom wants to be in Venice and at the same time enjoy a mix of modern and traditional design. We really look forward to have you and all your friends visiting Venice and stay at "The Red House" again. Caroline & Marco

Spacious and elegantly presented throughout

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved The Red House! It was the perfect space from which to enjoy Venice and ticked all the boxes for what we wanted... a clean and elegant place with a great vibe and the most important thing to us was a wonderful roof terrace and that we certainly had! I love to cook and the kitchen was clean and well equipped. It was lovely and peaceful yet only a stone's throw from all the action. We come to Venice often and would be very interested should you have any last minute deals for the property!

Incredible house, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This red house was perfect. Spacious, clean, modern, comfortable and really conveniently located. We had a wonderful stay and the air conditioning came in handy during a few hot days, and we really enjoyed the outside patio and also having a laundry machine. The check in and check out was also very professional. Grazie for a wonderful time in Venice!!!

Great location-lovely house close to Grand Canal

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped onto our booked water taxi at the airport docks we fell in love with Venice-the journey itself was worth the 110 euros[between 4 of us]-we travelled down the Grand Canal under the Rialto bridge to be met at our stop by Caroline.Caroline is a charming host and took us to The Red House-,she told us all we needed to know about the house and when we realised we needed an extra hairdryer-it arrived 30mins later.The house was spotless ,airy and the upstairs terrace a bonus-there is a lovely little store literally a stones throw away in which to purchase any food you might want for breakfast,lunch or a light supper.Da Fiore round the corner for a spritzer and cichetti,Campo San Stefano 5mins away-choice of restaurants-look in the church its roof is magnificent.The Accademia Bridge is close to and makes access to the other sestrieres on foot so easy.St Marks square within 30 minutes walk-wonderful though the crowds in the narrow alleyways were not too pleasant.Overall a wonderful stay- though bring plenty of euros as eating and drinking quite expensive.The Red House a lovely choice-airy,clean, 2 bathrooms and quiet at night-we all slept well .

Caroline organised our taxis and we knew if there had been a problem she would have been very attentive, a very gracious host-thank you.

Pam ,John,Rod and Glynis.

Georgeous apartment, fab location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful large apartment in a great location in the city. Quiet but eateries & shops just around the corner & only a few mins walk or vaporetto from all the sights. Functional & stylish furnishings, well equipped kitchen, lovely roof terrace, very helpful host. Great base for a few days in la Serenissima!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th stay in one of the Red House Company apartments.

Again Caroline & Marco and the entire Red House team showed as excellent hosts - the booked apartment was due to technical problems not available, but the apartment we got instead was more than an alternative. The apartment is a dream!!!

The location is perfect - all points of interest are very close and best of all, a superb restaurant is only a few feet away.

We surely will book this apartment in the future again.
