Very comfortable,clean and terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four adults traveling together and this apartment was very comfortable. The location was perfect for getting out and seeing the attractions as well as having a bakery close by, grocery store, many restaurants and shops. The owner was always helpful with answering any questions we had. We had a few hot days during our visit so the air conditioning in the apartment made us very comfortable. We even had our college age granddaughter vist with us for several nights and the space worked out well,we all were very comfortable. We would highly recommend this apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment! It was very clean, well stocked, plenty of linens, and the three stories gave us plenty of room for 5 people. The beds and cots were comfy and bed linens were great. Everything worked magnificently well and we were very happy with the central location of the apartment. Ilaria was accessible and check in and out were easy. Highly recommend!!

Great property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three and our daughter is four years old. The property was perfect for our requirements. Clean, spacious and well equipped and maintained.

The smaller room on the top floor was perfect for our daughter and the main bedroom was a good size.

Having the living space downstairs also made it much easier to keep our daughter entertained whilst we planned our days etc.

Lots of nice places nearby to pick up fresh food and perfectly positioned to access all of the main areas of Venice by foot without ever being far away.

Highly recommended and felt like very good value for money in a place certainly not noted for being such.

Perfect Apartment, Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying in this apartment.. and there are many to choose from but I always decided to return to this apartment. The best apartment I've ever stayed in Venice! Quiet, very private location down a short alley. Mere steps from the fruit vendor, two bakeries, and a deli selling all types of prosciutto, and cheeses so all your daily necessities are easily fulfilled. Despite its hidden nature, and extreme privacy, the apt. is only eight or nine minutes from San Marco, and five minutes to the vaporatto so it's easy to get to the apartment with your luggage. Any assistance with any needs, be it galoshes for aqua alta, or calling for a taxi, or even restaurant / entertainment advice is happily given by the apt.'s owner, Ilaria who runs a wonderful, well reviewed, hotel less than 100m from the apt. So each one of our needs were met with wonderful service. The apt. is gorgeous, two spacious floors with another single room on a third floor so there is plenty of space to spread out. The wireless internet is fast, and dependable. The full kitchen is clean, and the appliances work perfectly. The bathroom is large, with nice water pressure. Most importantly is the presence of a washing machine! Clothes can be hung out to dry, or if a dryer is needed, the apt. is also steps away from a laundrymat. Needless to say, the apt. is central to wonderful restaurants, and sites, if one can even choose sites in this beautiful city. Stay in this apartment with complete confidence that your holiday will be restful, safe, quiet, and infinitely comfortable.
