Elegant apartment in villa with garden and private parking 10 minutes far from the historic center of Venice.
Recently and carefully renovated and furnished.
Very convenient for visiting other major cultural centers in Veneto: Padua (20 min.), Treviso (20 min.), Venetian villas of Riviera del Brenta (accessible by a beautiful bicycle), Verona (1 hour), Jesolo (30 min.).
The apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms that make it ideal to accommodate two couples or a family with children. All equipment for infants is available.
Nearby there are the main services: supermarkets, restaurants, pizzerias, pharmacies, banks, ...
Erika's apartment was fully furnished and everything was working perfectly. The location is great, 2mins from the buses and 5m from Mestre train station. Heating, internet, appliances, coffee machine.. all of great quality and excelent condition. The beds in both bedrooms were very confortable and there is a nice backyard with a trampoline that our kid enjoyed throughout the whole stay (even in the foggy cold nights).
On arrival, we were welcomed by Erika's friend, Julia and she was waiting with some complementary juice and Prosecco. =)
All in all I think it's not possible to get better value for your money in Venice. I strongly recommend this property!
My experience tuned out exactly as what I found in the reviews and better.
We had 2 cars with us, and found the location very convenient for us to drive to and park. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe, apparently mostly for local residents. The property is fenced in. We could park one of our cars inside, and the other outside along the street. It's only 5 minutes to the train station. With a pass ($30 for 48 hours) for the water taxi inside Venezia, you can take either the trolley (3 minutes away) or the bus at the train station.
The backyard is like what you might find in the US, with a stone fireplace (we didn't use) and a playground.
Overall, this is cleanest and best equipped place that we had stayed at. Everything is in good and running condition. Our hostess gave us great advice that turned out to be very useful, such as transportation and local restaurants. We ended up having the first dinner at the pizzeria that she waited, and met her right there. It serves delicious pizza as she recommended.
The only thing that you need to know is not run the oven, the washer simultaneously, which would overload the circuit. When it happened to us, Erika was able to send a friend and get it taken care of within an hour (Need to walk outside of the fence to reset the main breaker).
Our entire experience staying at Erika's place was fabulous. She was very attentive and quick responding to emails. She was very flexible with our arrival time (which changed), and we got a very warm welcome. The apartment is in a great location and minutes from the bus to Venice, it was clean, the beds very comfortable, easy to use espresso maker in the kitchen, and she gave us great recommendations for dinner. She had detailed information for everything we needed to know about visiting the area. We would stay here again especially when visiting Venice by car.
It was a great apartment & location with all the amenities plus more than what you'd need & want. We were 2 couples and all agreed that we would certainly choose Villa Ada again and recommend it highly
My family and I stayed in Erika's beautiful condo for an extended weekend and truly enjoyed ourselves. Even though Erika herself was unable to greet us upon arrival, she had her friend meet us and show us around. Later that day, Erika's husband also stopped by to see how we were doing and to offer if we needed anything. The listing does not do the condo justice. It is a beautiful condo with the perfect sized rooms for a family of 4. During our short stay, there was an issue with the master bathroom's shower not draining. I emailed Erika, who was gone for the weekend, to let her know and she sent her friend to correct the problem the very next day. She even said she would cancel her weekend plans and come back if the problem could not be corrected immediately! Luckily, the shower was up and working by the time we returned from our day out in Venice.
Erika's condo is FULLY stocked with everything I could ever need in a kitchen. We were located just a 2-minute walk from the bus which took us into Venice and across the street from a delicious restaurant. Parking within the condo walls was included so we never had to worry about our vehicle.
I only have two complaints about the apartment. The first is the mosquito problem. Granted we went when the heat was quite high, but even though we never had the windows open while we were there, my husband and I were woken up every night to mosquitoes buzzing by us and biting us. Unfortunately, all four of us were bitten while there, and only during the night while we slept. My second problem, and this is personal, is the air conditioning. Even though the condo has an AC unit, it is only one and not strong enough to cool the bedrooms. We left it running hoping it would cool the rooms and get rid of the mosquitoes but it only cooled the kitchen/sitting area. The bedrooms were warm.
Overall, my family enjoyed our stay at Erika's and will definitely stay there the next time we plan on going to Venice. We'll probably aim at going during the winter months instead of the summer ones.
"Very nice place to stay in. Everything needed to feel like at home is in the apartment. Convinient transportation (nearby bus stops), very kind famili, very touching and hospitable. They were very good prepared to give all the needed information to their guests,who are not close with Venice.
Hope to visit Venice again!"
The apartment is at walking distance (5 min.) from the railway station of Venice-Mestre, also served by buses to and from the airports of Venice (15 min.) and Treviso (30 min.)
For those arriving by car, the apartment is 5 minutes from the highway.
