About the property

Charming flat with a balcony facing a romantic typical Venetian canal

We rent our flat in Venice for short weekly stays all year round (preferably weekly stays but we can accept a minimum stay of three days). The flat is perfect for two and suitable for a family with a child. “Nati’s House” offers the comfort and the charm that could emphasize the value of your stay in this spectacular city of the world. Very well lighted, it faces with a balcony a marvellous typical Venetian canal, in a part of Venice, which still belongs to Venetians. We think this is a great value for the wise tourist. The flat is completely furnished, some pieces of furniture are antique and it is located at the first floor: safe when the sea floods the streets and far from humidity of the ground floors. “Nati’s House” is waiting you just four minutes by the Alilaguna water bus stop (shuttle service from/to the airport). For more photos and further details about us, the flat and the simple automatic way to book your stay, please visit our website. Ask us the URL if you can't see it in this page.

Without otherwise agreed, keys are delivered directly to your contractual address by post. So at your arrival, you will already have the keys and detailed directions.

About Paolo

Owner: Paolo Devescovi, owner since 2003, architect free lance and art teacher in public school.

In early 2002 the stock exchange crisis caused by the disaster of the twin towers, spread over the world. In that occasion I saw my savings eroded considerably. So I decided to buy a little flat in Venice (Nati's House). I am an architect and surely I can take care of buildings better than care of money. Since then, the rental activity, held through the web, became an important activity of mine. As freelance architect I soon acquired clients who expressly wanted to restore or to refurbish their houses for doing the same rental activity I was managing for my new Venetian place. The whole has been dressed by my enthusiastic approach to the possibilities offered by the Internet. I aggregated around my private website a small community of guests. In some cases, true friendships started for long lasting rapports.

Since then, the rental activity, held through the web, became an important activity of mine. As freelance architect I soon acquired clients who wanted to restore or to refurbish their houses for doing the same rental activity I was managing for my own properties. The whole has been dressed by my enthusiastic approach to the possibilities offered by the Internet. I aggregated around my private website a small community of guests. In some cases, true friendships started for long lasting rapports.

Some years ago, some companies bought the whole trust of the online advertisements, begining to target the fast online-booking-style through the search engines rather than to foster the quality of growing sincere relationships as I was used to offer through my website and my personal brand Archirent (do a search on line for more). Anyway I go to great lengths to maintain the original spirit and fight against standardization of great commercial websites. Right now I can count to the cooperation of my valid colleague and architect Carlotta Lo Verde.

Paolo purchased this apartment in 2003

What makes this apartment unique

On one thing I staid strong:

I maintained the same prices in all my advertisements.

You will see that the prices in this website are lower than those reported in my official private website (do a search with Archirent).

This reduction takes into account the fact you have to pay an 8.7% average rate as Service Fee to book through this website (actually the total will grow as you proceed with the checkout procedure!). The price, based on short stays, you are going to pay using this website, is approximately the same you can find in my private website or in other websites advertising my property.

Differences may persist, but, positive or negative they are really inconsistent (a few euros due to the VAT policies, variability of currency rates and other factors). If you book through this website you will get the benefit of an insurance and my advertisement will rank into a higher position toward the top of the ‘anonymous competitors list’ of this website.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I loved our week in Nati's House in Venice and wished we could have stayed longer. The house is well located, yet far from the tourist track. It is comfortable and the host is very conscientious in providing everything that is needed, including Venice guidebooks in English, as well as detailed instructions covering every eventuality. The apartment was clean, well maintained and fit the description provided very accurately. I would definitely recomment it.

Relax in your own Venetian apartment

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, clean and well equipped for a short or extended stay in a quiet part of Venice where people still live. Just one bridge and a very short walk bring you to the vaporetto stop which takes you right around Venice, out to the lido or Murano and to and from the airport. A walk of less than 10mins brings you to a water bus stop on the Grand Canal. You can buy everything you need for self catering nearby including fresh fish, vegetables and fruit and groceries. Lots of places to eat out too. Highly recommended.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is situated in a very quiet neighbourhood, though you need only to step out on the balcony to feel the Italian way of living. Right below the balcony a minor canal is flowing with pitoresque surroundings. The appartment is very well equipped, very neat and clean and suitable for two maybe three persons. You don't need to go far to catch the Vaporetto or to get to the railwaystation or busstation, actually you can reach most of Venice from here quite easily. Guidance from the owner is very accurate and you will be very well informed about everyting from Paolo. We can only give our best recommendation of this appartment and its owner.

Excellent location and excellent landlord

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week in Paolo's apartment in Venice. The apartment is on the 2d floor(to an Italian it is the 1st floor). Bottom line is that it was only up one flight of stairs to get to get there. The apartment overlooks a very small Venetian canal where small power boats with outboards are tied up next to the sidewalk(fondamenta). During the week that we were there I never saw or heard any boat moving on the canal. The place was exceptionally quiet, which is a definite priority for us. The apt is a short walk from the train station where you arrive in Venice, hence easily accessible even if you are rolling 2 heavy suitcases as we were. There are outdoor fresh am produce and seafood markets on the next canal over if you are so inclined. Our cooking in the apartment was minimal so we didn't take advantage of these markets. The variety of seafood available at the outdoor seafood market was beyond outstanding. There is a vaporetto stop conveniently also on the next canal over, which in light of Venice's sometimes/oftentimes confusing street arrangement was nice. We bought a 7 day vaporetto pass which allows you to hop on and off the vaps at will. This turned out to be an excellent decision. There is also a true supermarket pretty nearby and definitely findable. We used this resource several times for essentials such as tp and wine. The apt is in an old ethnic part of the city, which is a boon for several nearby uncrowded(with the exception of Friday night dinner time) good restaurants. The Cannaregio district seems to be totally residential. We saw no other tourists on our canal or in our building. The apartment is not luxurious, but is very comfortable. Everything in the apartment worked. The front door locks required some jiggling on occasion to open. The main bed(sofa bed), although comfortable enough, could be improved by replacing it with a regular bed that doesn't stick out on the bottom. Paolo was very responsive within hours to any email I sent him. Wireless connection was seamless. Bottom line - great quiet apartment off the beaten tourist track.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Our guests spoke about the variety of seafood you can find in Venice. Anyone who is 'so inclined', as they say, may try my personal recipes in a special section of my website. I take great delight in preparing such dishes...

Magical

  • 5 of 5

We spent five wonderful nights in Nati's House and would thoroughly recommend it. It is the perfect size for a couple, well equipped and comfortable; absolutely beautiful when the sun shines in to the lounge in the afternoon. The location is perfect; five minutes from the vaporetto, five minutes from the supermarket, five minutes from a beautiful spot overlooking the lagoon where you can watch the boats go by, ten minutes from the station. Paolo is a perfect host and sends you everything you need to enjoy your stay. We will definitely be back.

We have been to Venice many times before so we used this opportunity to take the Burchiello boat cruise to Padua and a train excustion to Vicenza, both of which were superb. It was brilliant coming back to our own apartment in Venice in the evening on both occasions!

GamGam is a must try restaurant nearby.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is a great deal for Venice. We loved the location - in the quiet Canneregio district away from the crowds, but close enough to be able to walk everywhere. Having a little balcony on a canal was the perfect Venice dream! We enjoyed shopping at the little store nearby, and there were plenty of fresh produce and fish markets nearby. The apartment was as described in the listing. We appreciated the washing machine in the kitchen and drying lines on the balcony. The apartment is only one story up, so not insurmountable after a long day of walking. Venice is such an amazing city. We loved it there, and Nati's House was part of our wonderful stay.

Paulo was very helpful and responsive to any of our questions during the booking process, and during our stay.

Some suggestions:

- We found the floor mats in the bedroom and kitchen were ready for a change or good cleaning.

- The pull-out bed was adequate, but a real bed with a thicker mattress would be an improvement.

All in all, a great place to stay and a real value for Venice.

Car: not necessary

Located in the Cannaregio District, where the popular culture of Venice is still alive and where restaurants and “osterias” are still for Venetians (and for the few lucky tourists who go off the beaten track for a minute or two) .4-8 minutes walk from the boat service, 11-13 from railway station and 10 from Rialto, maybe less with “gondola” shuttle. If you plan to arrive to the San Marco Airport, just take the Alilaguna shuttle boat Airport-Venice, stop at Guglie water bus stop in Venice and then you have to walk four minutes and just one bridge to cross!
