Charming flat with a balcony facing a romantic typical Venetian canal
- english, italian, Please write in English
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.

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, beginning 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. 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.. 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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Cute apartment, great location
First, communication with Paolo was excellent. And the check-in process could not have been easier as he mailed me the keys before I even traveled to Italy! Loved, loved, loved the neighborhood. I thoroughly enjoyed the balcony in the mornings and after the sun set. Unfortunately, during the day it was too hot to sit in the full sun to enjoy the canal. I would like to recommend a electric tea kettle as I had to boil water in a sauce pan to make my morning tea. I would also like to encourage the replacement of the missing canvas on the retractable awning over the balcony. If that were done, not only would it provide shade for the balcony but also help the apartment stay cooler. It got very hot inside even though I kept the shutters and windows closed during the day.
I couldn’t have had a more pleasant stay at Nati’s House! Location was fabulous and Paolo went over and about to make sure everything was well planned out!!! Thanks for a great trip!
We loved every apsect of Nati's place from the spacious apartement to the balcony overlooking the canal. it is one of the few areas where you can experience Vencice and feel like a local, yet the hustle of the city is only a ew blocks away. The owner communicates very effectively to ensure all of the details of your stay are taken care of. Highly recommended.
I am very happy to read how good was the experience of my guest!
I really thank Alan for the five-star review. Paolo
Location location Location!
This location can't be beat. Combines the quiet of a small canal street with access to great places. Couldn't ask to be closer to a major vaporetto stop.
Paulo was very detail-oriented and had everything ready for us when we got to the apartment. Emails, keys, communication, location - everything was great! Easy to get to and center of Venice - walking distance to a lot of the main sites. Highly recommend!
Nice out of the way place in Venice
Clean apartment located on a small, quiet canal, but easily within walking distance of major streets and canals. The bed was very nice. The owner is a good communicator who helped to make our check-in as easy as possible.
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!
