Everything was so straight forward. Met at Ca' Rezzonica taxi stop and the apartment is a 5 min walk. Beautiful views from all rooms. Would quite happily recommend to others. Irene the owner was fantastic- nothing was too much trouble

The host replied to all emails and questions and was very friendly. She met us at the flat and all went well. It is a lovely bright flat located on a corner of 2 canals, with great views in the morning of the locals going about everyday life and all sort of utility boats doing deliveries,etc... It is a privilege to watch people go by and imagine their lives in Venice. Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Shops very close by. Conveniently located, lovely neighbourhood. Main bedroom with comfortable double bed on the back overlooking a quiet garden. Second bedroom with 2 single beds and a comfortable pull out couch in the kitchen area. Only one bathroom, but not a problem for 3 ladies. Could do with a few more mirrors, but otherwise all you need is there. Kitchen well equipped, and we made good use of it. We recommend you use Ca' Rezzonico Vaporetto stop for daily travels to other parts of Venice, as you do not go near the bus arrival area which is close to Piazzale Roma Vaporetto stop.
