SAME BUILDING AS HILTON HOTEL-SUNNY APARTMENT - STUNNING VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Cannaregio

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Molino Stucky Condominium and the New Molino Stucky HILTON are in the same building, with the Hilton occupying the left side and the Condominium occupying the right side (please see the picture on the left). The same developer did both simultaneously, so we share the same marble bathrooms, large air conditioned rooms and other amenities. The main difference is that the Hilton charges a minimum of € 400 per day for a ROOM, and we charge a minimum of € 150 per day for an ENTIRE APARTMENT.

My condominiums are located in a charming 18th century building overlooking the largest canal in Venice. Watch the parade of boats, from gondolas and private launches to vaporettos and ocean liners, from the privacy of your window. See Piazza San Marco's bell tower and the Salute Church. Watch the people on the Zattere in Dorsoduro on the other side of the canal going to and fro among the traditional three-pronged Venetian street lights. In the evening, look at the sun set over the stunning snow-capped Dolomites.

Our apartments are in the famous antique Molino Stucky, a charming 18th century flour mill that has just been rebuilt as Venice's premier residence. In fact, we share our island with the world famous Cipriani Hotel and Hilton Hotel. Our apartments were just recently totally renovated and furnished, and were just placed into service in the last few years. They are all bright, comfortable and quiet (with special double glazed windows) and are available all year.

My lovely one bedroom apartment has terrazzo floors and wonderful canal AND mountain views. The apartment has an enormous red marble bathroom with an oversize bathtub with shower, toilet and bidet; it even has a washing machine for your clothes. The apartment has a sleeper couch in the living room and therefore sleeps four people. It is situated high on the fifth floor and is reached by a self-service elevator, a rare commodity in Venice.

The apartment has central air conditioning and heat that you may directly control through a thermostat in the living room.

Cooking is a nice way to save money when traveling with a large family, and we try to make it as easy as possible. My kitchen is fully equipped, including all pots, pans, silverware, glasses and dishes that you could possibly need. All this and a dishwasher to clean up with after your meals. I have also provided color TVs and a stereo with a CD player, as well as an iron and ironing board. The apartment is also provided with its own mobile phone.

Finally, when renting a private home in Venice, always be careful to ask if there is an elevator. The great majority of Venetian buildings have no elevator because the Landmarks Ministry (the "Belle Arte") forbids their installation in antique buildings. As a result, bringing a family with luggage up several flights of stairs can present quite a problem. This has been solved in our building by the installation of two fully automatic elevators for your convenience.

My apartment is sunny and bright, and has a stunning water AND mountain view. My apartment is non-smoking, and family owned and operated. In short, I have remodeled and furnished this apartment to my own high standards because I am a mother and my kids spend about three months a year here in Venice occupying it.

Please Note: We have Two Additional, Identically Appointed, Apartments Available In the Same Condominium Building; One Is A Larger One-Bedroom Apartment And The Other Is A Two-Bedroom Apartment. Perfect for larger groups traveling together!

Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to let you know how much my family and I enjoyed staying in the Guidecca apartments. It was easy to find and the housekeeper was very helpful. I will be sure to recommend it to any friends who might be travelling to Italy in the future.







Thank you!

This is the second time we have rented one of Jane's apartments and we were, once again, very pleased. This time we rented the one-bedroom apartment overlooking the small canal, whereas last time we had the two-bedroom with the beautiful big canal view. Frankly, it didn't matter. The apartment was bright and airy, well-appointed, and completely serviceable. We had everything we needed, and more, and our friends who rented the other one-bedroom right next door joined us for breakfast every day. We had plenty of towels for the 5 days, and we were thrilled this year to have thick oversized bath towels. The air conditioning worked perfectly, the high speed wifi never faltered, the bathroom lighting was the best I ever had for putting on makeup, the bedroom was large and had amazing storage space and the bed was comfortable. And, of course, having an elevator was a plus. In short, this really was a little home away from home -- not a hotel room with beds made and towels changed for you every day! The Molino Stuckey location is fine, just 5 minutes on the hotel shuttle to Zattere or a 5-minute walk to the vaporetto if you want to get to a location other than Zattere and San Marco. Our friends found the staff at the Molino Stuckey very helpful and they were able to print boarding passes and get other concierge-type services there. A suggestion for arriving from the airport: buy an ACTV pass for the vaporetto before you leave the airport and, if you wish, add a round trip bus ticket from Marco Polo to the bus terminal, Piazelle Roma, only another $8. The bus trip to PR is just 25 minutes and then get the 2 vaporetto (direction San Marco) or, our preference, although a slightly longer walk at the pier, the 41 vaporetto, which is faster -- only two stops to Sacca Fissola. Everything worked well for us on this trip and Jane was very helpful responsive to my questions by email before the trip. In short, we are very happy with this rental arrangement and we will be back in two years.

Excellent apartment in great location

  • 5 out of 5
A group of five of us stayed in the two-bedroom apartment for five days and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The location was exactly as described on Giudecca, away from the hectic main part of Venice, but within easy reach either by Vaporetto (pay for passes online in advance and you will save time queuing for tickets) or the free Hilton shuttle boat. With the apartment having dual aspect windows there were views both across and up the Giudecca canal towards St. Mark's basin. Great for watching all the boats coming and going.

The apartment was even more spacious than the photos suggested and was clean and well-equipped. There was free wifi, so I was able to use my iPad. It also benefited from a lift- a rarity in Venice.

Even though our flight was more than two hours late, the housekeeper, Angelita, still met us as arranged to show us the apartment and give us the keys. Communication with her was also trouble-free via her mobile.

The apartment owner gave us all the information we needed and replied to e-mails within 24hrs. (Very good considering the time difference)

Contrary to comments made in another review about the lack of restaurants nearby, there are several restaurants on Giudecca, no more than 20mins walk away, some even closer. We can recommend Ai Botti, Ai Cacciatori, Do Mori and Altanella (a quiet but well-renowned restaurant with a beautiful canal-side covered terrace). We also ate at one of the restaurants across the canal on the Zattere, also with wonderful food and views.

If arriving at Marco Polo airport, I would suggest using a water taxi (which can be prebooked online) which takes about 25mins to the apartment, which is direct and hassle-free. A little pricey, but a wonderful way to arrive!

We would certainly stay at this lovely apartment again.

OK Apartment, But Be Aware

  • 3 out of 5
This is a long review, sorry. Let me say up front that I have rented from VRBO for many years and have nothing but positive experiences all over the world. This was unfortunately not one. When reading the description on VRBO be aware that everything in the listing refers to the owner’s 2-bedroom apartment and not the 1-bedroom units, even though she states that ALL her apartments have the SAME amenities. All of the photos and descriptions are of the 2-bedroom and the amenities are for the 2-bedroom as well. These listings should be separate as it is very deceptive. The apartment does not look onto the Dorsoduro, but actually looks onto the cruise terminal and industrial area. Yes, you can see the Guidecca Canal and you do see activity of boats going back and forth, but not as shown in the photos. There is NO telephone, the satellite TV has NO English stations (I just read the news on my computer), and there is NO coffee maker (there is a French Press and a stovetop espresso pot, which was fine for us). The linens were horrible. The towels were terribly thin and worn and the bath towel was about the size of a large hand towel. There was only one set of towels for each of us for a 5 night stay; not even one extra towel. Only one dish towel as well. The pillows were like rocks. There was an extra pillow in the closet but there were no pillow cases. Poor communication with the owner with incorrect phone numbers and delayed responses to emails. There was conflicting information as to which apartment we were assigned. The first confirmation indicated the 1-bedroom unit and the following confirmations indicated the 2-bedroom unit. I made an assumption (my bad!) that the owner had changed the assignment to the 2-bedroom, as her contract states that the apartment is subject to change. When I emailed the owner from France to indicate that I had a family issue back home and phone access was imperative, she assured me that there were two phones; one for local calls and one to call the US. That is only in the 2-bedroom. When I called the housekeeper one week in advance as requested, she did not know I was coming so I called the owner who was rather abrupt with me and seemed to be disturbed that I called her. She assured me that all was in order and I would be in the 2-bedroom. Then the day I was arriving I received an email that I was in the 1-bedroom. The apt. is in a lovely location, great shuttle service, OK apt. Just know what you are renting.

problems we encountered during our stay

  • 3 out of 5
When we arrived we inquired about how to use the advertised central a/c. The owners representative told us the a/c was turned off and we could not use it despite the warm temperatures. We finally convinced her to turn on the a/c. Then we found out by reading the owners apartment manual for renters that the a/c was turned off by the building from 9pm until 9am. The book advised to run the a/c during the day to cool the apartment and then shut it off at night and open the windows. We did so. Then we found that by opening the windows we invited in scores of hungry mosquitos. We spent days killing them and being bitten by them. We also found the apartment to be in a nice location but isolated from restaurants and nightlife and sights. Essentially we had to take the Vaporretto (water bus) to eat, find groceries and sights. If you like quiet, the location is great.

Great apartment with good value.

  • 5 out of 5
Having been in Venice before and over-paid for a small Hotel room, we were pleasantly surprised to see a new apartment listed on VRBO at a reasonable price. My wife and I spent 9 days in the two bedroom unit with another couple. The listing description was very accurate and directions given us got us right there from the airport. The property is very new, has a high-speed computer, local phone and LD phone back to states - almost like living at home. There are vaporetto stops about 200 yards in each direction, but more important is the Hilton shuttle boat that leaves every 20 minutes for Zattere and St Mark's. There are good restaurants closeby on the island, but we found we preferred the many good restaurants across the water on Dorsoduro, Only bad things in October are the mosquitos in your room and high tide flooding in Piazza San Marco, but smaller crowds and pleasant temps more than make up for that. Would definitely recommend this property to others.

Great Venice Location

  • 5 out of 5
fabulous location, well organized shuttle to/from town. Be sure to explore the island. We took water vaparetto to airport rather than return as directions had us come - also very easy. Apartment spotless, well appointed, very comfortable. Great choice for us!
