Delightful stay in cosy and charming apartment

5 of 5
We loved our stay at David's apartment. It was located in a quiet and charming area of Venice, close enough to shops and places to eat out but far enough from the crowds and peaceful at night. The apartment was clean, spacious and well set up with looks of cooking equipment. David was very helpful prior to our stay and had lots of tips of places to see, shop, eat and drink. Easy to access from Marco Polo airport with only a 5 min walk from the nearest vaparetto stop. Would highly recommend and love to return someday soon!

What a Great Place to Stay

5 of 5
We were a family of 4 with a 19 and 20 year old. It was easy to get the water bus from the airport to the local stop, then literally a 3 minute walk to the apartment. ...The apartment was everything we had hoped for, with lively restaurants and a supermarket all within a 2 minute walk and the fruit barge just across the way. St Marks was a little further at around a 15 minute walk, but included crossing various canals and various squares and so the walk was never an issue. All in all would highly recommend and would use again.
