Paradise in Venice!

Grazie, Giulia! You and your lovely apartment made our nine day stay in Venice one of our best vacations ever! The apartment is amazing! It was move in ready, very clean and beautifully decorated. We found the listing description to be totally accurate and the apartment to be even more than anticipated. Everything, including toilet paper, was provided. A lovely bottle of champagne was awaiting us. It only lacked a refrigerator full of food, which you could conveniently buy at a nearby market.

The location was convenient and fun, being next to a vaporetto station and gondola ferry. We bought a multiple day pass for the vaporetto which was one of the smartest things we did. This gave us unlimited daily access which we used a lot since we were so close to the vaperetto station. It was nice not having to walk home after a late evening at the Opera. Or if you prefer walking, it is not too far from the Rialto Bridge and some great restaurants and shops. The little bar around the corner was perfect for a quick snack with the locals or a relaxing spritz cocktail. We always had fun tackling the surrounding maze of "streets" in Venice.

Giulia, the owner, was only an email away with quick answers to all our questions. She was extremely helpful and hospitable.

I looked online for several weeks at various hotels and apartments, and fortunately settled on this property. We definitely recommend Guilia's apartment and would not hesitate to request it again on our next visit to Venice. No more hotels!! Staying in this beautiful apartment helped us feel like Venetians and not tourists.
Ciao, Giulia, and thank you again for helping make our stay in Venice fun and memorable!

Fantastic place to stay in Venice

All the positive reviews of this apartment, and of our lovely host Giulia, are 100% accurate. The apartment is very spacious, comfortable, nicely designed, well appointed, and perfectly located for easy access to the sights of Venice. Giulia is very charming and provides lots of tips, recommendations and information to orient and guide you on your stay. You won't believe it when you step onto one of the balconies with your morning coffee and see the Grand Canal steps away!

I'm a bit sensitive to noise and the bedrooms abut a restaurant, so my only (and very slight) minus was hearing occasional sounds coming from there in the morning. My partner wasn't bothered by it at all, I only mention it to suggest bringing earplugs if you're a very light sleeper. It certainly didn't diminish my enjoyment of the place one bit and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Bigger than you think.

My first thought was that Giulia (our gracious and incredibly helpful host) must live in the other half of the apartment, but no...it's all for us. This apartment is big and thoroughly modern in the midst of the crumbling beauty of Venice. There is a nice collection of books in the apartment and one, The Secret Venice of Corto Maltese, made for an enjoyable treasure hunt through this wonderful city. My only recommendation would be for Giulia to get a pair of slightly narrower chairs. It would be possible to squeeze them onto the balcony and enjoy breakfast alfresco or a glass of wine while watching the bustle along the Grand Canal. Thanks Giulia.

Ideal Location

This apartment was a perfect base for our exploration of Venice. It really does have that lovely view in the listing. Each morning that I woke and saw the Frari tower out the window, I felt blessed.

It is literally two minutes from the apartment to nearest Vaporetto dock, an easy walk to all the sights, but far enough away from the busy tourist spots that it is peaceful. But, part of a charming neighbourhood.

The apartment was nicely appointed, looking much like the photos in the listing. We used the clothes washer, microwave, kettle and stove, and all worked perfectly. The kitchen is nicely equipped. And, Guilia had also provided dish soap, cleaning tools etc. The only thing we had to buy was laundry soap. The linens were fresh and new, and there were lots of extras should they be needed.

We were only two people, so we only used the king-sized bed in the main bedroom. The bed was very firm, in the European style, but good. The apartment is large enough for more people. The second bedroom has a single bed, and I believe there was another bed, though we never explored to find it. There is a very pleasant sitting room, with the view over the canals. There is a nice little desk area that we used for our computer. Very convenient.

There is a small grocery store within a 5 minute walk, and it is only a 15 minute walk to the Rialto market for fresh food. There is a very nice little restaurant in the Campo San Toma, just around the corner.

The apartment is on the first floor, European style, that is to say, up one flight of stairs. There is no lift, so be prepared to carry your suitcase up and down. It is worth the effort. When you come through the door from the street, the entry area looks a little rough; water damage, and repairs in progress. Don't worry; this is normal in Venice, and up the stairs everything is in beautiful shape. The building is obviously well maintained.

Giula, the owner, made the visit very special. She met us at the San Toma dock, and guided us to the apartment, where she gave us an orientation and generously answered questions. She had suggestions for places to eat, and had maps and guidebooks on hand. She also took the extra effort to provide me with some speciality items I had inquired about. And, when we had a question, she answered email very promptly. She made the visit perfect.

We loved our visit, and when we return to Venice we hope to stay here again.

Fabulous Apartment

  • Review Submitted: 09-Dec-2012

This is by far and away the best and most wonderfully comfortable apartment I've ever stayed in in Venice.

Located up just one easy flight of stairs the apartment is exceptionally well equipped with a very efficient clothes washer, dishwasher, all the kitchen equipment you could ever want, as well as an abundance of very nice glasses, crockery and cutlery. There's excellent internet access, a great range of books and suggestions for shops/restaurants.

It really is a treat to stay here and I wish I'd never had to leave!

Guilia, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming and I will most certainly be staying here again.
