If you go to Venice stay in this apartment. It is fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment exceeded our expectations. It is the best VRBO that we have stayed in. The apartment is light and airy, beautifully decorated and just top-notch all the way. The first night we were there the AC was not functioning. We texted Svetlana and she had it fixed the next morning. Also, while we were there they installed a washing machine in the apartment. Very convenient. There are dryers available on the ground floor - unusual in Italy. Particularly handy in Venice, as it's hard to get the laundry to dry. The apartment is very spacious with large windows facing the canal. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to any one. Of the three apartments we rented in Italy this was by far the best. It's in a great location - in Castello, but only a10 minute walk to the San Marco vaperretto stop and St. Mark's Square. Rent it and enjoy.

Spacious with a great view, clean and comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a day late because of airline delays, but the Begonia was beautiful, sparkling clean and perfectly located! Svetlana met us at the San Zaccharias vaporetto dock and briefed us on keys, laundry, etc. It was a huge apartment with great views of tiled roofs, a canal, steeples and towers. There is a full kitchen for those staying ay length of time who wish to prepare their own meals, a beautiful long dining room table, two bathrooms and a spacious living room/sitting area. We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting romantic Venice, whether it's their first visit or, as many do, return for more magic. This is a wonderful property.

Hated to leave

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was gorgeous and spacious, filled with light. Luxurious linens (ironed!) on the bed. Eleven windows overlooking a canal. Enjoyed "Pranzo all'aperto" on the lower terrace, and then a nap in the sun on the upper terrace. The apartment was very clean. The staff was great. Our little dream of living in Venice for 2 weeks!

Stunning and extremely comfortable apartment with views over rooftops and canal.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this fabulous apartment. It is extremely spacious with lots of original detail: the wooden parquet flooring, frescoed ceilings and doors. The bed was extremely comfortable and the whole place relaxing. The views from all the windows are across the rooftops towards San Marco. This was especially atmospheric at sunset. The view down onto the Canal de Greci was great and there was always something to watch. We even managed to sit out on the terrace in the sunshine once for breakfast and for late afternoon drinks. It is in a very quiet neighbourhood yet not far from the San Zaccharia stop or from St Marc's Square. We walked everywhere and loved exploring and comparing different parts of the city. We arrived on a Sunday evening and took a water taxi from the airport to save time. Svetlana met us at a drop off near the apartment and showed us where everything was. There was a welcome bottle of Prosecco which was lovely. Arriving on a Sunday evening meant shops were shut. Some instant coffee in the cupboard would have been useful until we bought some for the machine the next day. We also had brought our own shower gel etc which was useful since there was none in either of the fabulous bathrooms. We have stayed in similar levels of accommodation and these little finishing touches do make a difference. Despite this we would highly recommend the apartment and the location. We loved it.

This apartment was exactly as advertised. Very clean and modern with a well-equipped kitchen. Svetlana was very helpful and available. We liked being near Trattoria Jonny and the pasticceria. We would definitely return!

Begonia apartment exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from a quick 3-night stay in Venice. From start to finish, this rental experience was one of the best we've ever had.

Antonella was easy to book with and excellent in her communication. She gave us the number of her representative, Svetlana, with whom we easily texted and met us at the Ospedale vaparetto stop. The apartment can be reached from that one, or from San Zaccaria. Ospedale made for a slightly longer walk, but a much shorter water-bus ride. (Side note, I highly recommend the water taxi if you can afford it. SO much faster, easier and more comfortable. We had a very long wait for the water bus.)

The Begonia apartment is on the top floor of the building (there is a slow lift, helpful if you have heavy bags) and there is also a shared terrace with a dining table and a smaller, rooftop terrace that's perfect for enjoying coffee or a glass of wine.

The entry hall has a shared ice-maker for the floor. However, we never saw nor heard another person in the building.

The apartment is stunning and so much bigger than I thought it would be! The ceilings are high and painted with lovely frescoes, the floors are authentic parquet, and the VIEWS... well I was blown away. There are many windows that all look out on the canal, bridges, and over the rooftops. I loved listening to the sounds of the canal coming alive in the morning, the boats, the people, the church bells... (but the windows are excellent and when closed the apartment is very quiet!)

Having two full bathrooms was a treat, and the shower had the best water pressure I've had in ages!

The apartment has many details really make it stand out... full-length mirrors, high quality hair-dryer, two kinds of coffee makers, a bottle of prosecco in the fridge... etc.

We did not use the sofa-bed in the room adjacent to the bedroom, but there was plenty of space for another person or two... however not great privacy for whoever would be sleeping out there.

The bed and bedding were comfortable, though a bit firm. (One recommendation would be to have a couple extra pillow choices available for those who prefer a softer pillow.)

And the only other thing to note was that I was glad I had packed a bar of soap, for there was no body soap (or shampoo) in the bathrooms. Not a big deal, but good to know!

All in all it was an excellent experience, we would definitely return, and I would recommend Antonella and the Begonia apartment to anyone!
